Yule Logs

Making Yule Logs

What’s so special about our yule logs

Our traditional yule logs are made with our homemade sponge cake formula that has been in our family for generations. After it’s baked, we generously spread red and green buttercream icing on the layer before carefully rolling the cake into a log.

After it sets, our bakers turn the log over to our decorators.

Decorating the Yule Logs

Our decorators hand cut each log before covering them with a rich, creamy chocolate icing. When the main log is iced, a small, side log is added and iced in the same chocolate icing. Each log end is then covered in our homemade chocolate buttercream icing. Gum paste poinsettias and powdered “snow” are added for decoration.

Storing the Yule Log

We recommend storing your yule log in a refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. You can leave it in the box you bring it home in or if you have another storage container, that can work as well. When choosing the best time to pull out your cake for your party, keep the weather in mind. Weather plays a big role in many baked goods and since we do live in Florida, humidity often creates issues for chocolate desserts. The yule logs can sit out on a table in an air-conditioned room for a bit, but we leave that to your discretion.

Serving your Yule Log

Yule log, Cinottis Bakery, Christmas Cake, Buche de Noel, poinsettia, log, forest, snowThese logs are just like most jelly-roll esq desserts. You can slice them as thin or as thick as you desire. While the flowers are made of gum paste, they are not edible. Everything else on the log can be enjoyed.

Any leftovers you may have can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days.

We wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and hope to continue to serve you and your family for years to come.

Merry Christmas from Cinottis!

Gingerbread House Kits!

Gingerbread House Kits!

Gingerbread for Christmas

Gingerbread houses are a staple in many family Christmas traditions. That’s why you see gingerbread house kits in just about every store during the holiday season. Some stores even put them out as early as October.

If you’re looking for a way to make great family memories and have a sweet treat in the mix, our gingerbread house kits are the way to go.

Gingerbread House Kits

Our gingerbread house kits come complete with the pre-assembled freshly baked house, candy, and freshly made, royal icing. You can get up to six different candy selections, an icing bag for piping decorations, and festive rings for added scenery.

The House

We begin baking our made-from-scratch gingerbread houses in late November when, theoretically, the humidity in Florida is lower. Our gingerbread house dough formula is one we’ve used for more than fifty years. Making our gingerbread is a huge event which includes using almost every member of our baking staff to complete. Each batch is carefully weighed, rolled, cut, and baked before cooling and setting up.

The Process

Our gingerbread house process is a four-day event.

After a day of making and baking, our bakers allow the house to set up overnight.

Day 2: Our decorators set up the base and walls using made-from-scratch royal icing

Day 3: Our decorators carefully assemble the roof and use royal icing to secure it to the base and walls.

On day 4, the house is ready to be decorated.

Ordering your Gingerbread House

We strive to keep our quality high, which is why in recent years, we have decided to keep our gingerbread house orders to a minimum. We don’t start taking orders until November 1.

You can order an entire gingerbread house kit which includes the house, candy, and icing. Or, you can opt to have the house by itself. Or, if you have your own candy, you can order the house and icing separately.

Our small house is great for individuals or a smaller household.

Our large house is perfect as a centerpiece. If you have children who like to compete, our large house gives plenty of roof space for each to showcase their creativity.

Order your house!

If you are looking for a quality gingerbread house kit this holiday season, give us a call. We are more than happy to help you make the best of your Christmastime.

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice…

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice…

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice…

As our countdown to Pumpkin Donuts rolls on, we are busy preparing our signature Spice mixture that will go into many of our autumn products. The combination of spices is a tightly held family secret formula and has been dubbed a ‘Pumpkin Spice’ paradise by many of our customers. And while this Pumpkin Spice may be nice, we are often asked why we don’t begin our pumpkin season when the ‘other guys’ start theirs.

The answer is simple.


Pumpkin Spice is our autumn treat

It seems as soon as the school year begins, stores line their shelves with Halloween costumes, Christmas décor, and of course, pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING. And while we love each holiday, we can also appreciate the importance of slowing down to enjoy the final days of summer.

We regard the tradition of decorating for Christmas after Thanksgiving just as much as we favor filling our shelves with pumpkin spice in autumn. This hard held tradition is a major reason we choose to hold off on anything pumpkin related until the end of September.

The traditional start date for our Pumpkin Donuts has always been the last Friday in September. This year, we will roll out the delicious bites of pumpkin goodness September 27.

Pumpkin Donuts

We have spent years perfecting the best flavors to create a one of a kind donut that is unmatched. If you’ve never experienced the taste of our secret spice blend, you are certainly in for a treat on September 27.

You can pre-order them to be rolled in a cinnamon-sugar blend or enjoy the traditional glazed pumpkin donuts.

Pumpkin Donut Premier

If you’re really in a rush to try these tasty bites, join us for our one-hour premier at midnight on September 27. We open our doors from 12:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. on September 27 to give die-hard Pumpkin Donut fans the opportunity to enjoy the first batch of donuts for the 2019 season.

In recent years, the crowds have grown, the excitement has grown, and the love of pumpkin spice has grown.

If you’re up for a good time at your local neighborhood bakery, we invite you to come on down. Our midnight premier is truly a fun experience for everyone.

Other Pumpkin Spice Products

Pumpkin Donuts aren’t our only pumpkin spice infused item during the autumn months. We produce a variety of products such as Harvest Rings, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Nut Breads, Spice Cake, Spice Cupcakes, and of course, Pumpkin Pie.

Harvest Rings

Our Harvest Ring is similar to a Bundt Cake. We add our special blend of spices to this pumpkin cake and bake it to perfection. Then we drizzle a thin glaze over the entire cake while it’s still warm to seal all the warm pumpkin flavor inside.

Pumpkin Muffins and Pumpkin Nut Bread

For a quick morning breakfast or a light afternoon snack, our Pumpkin Muffins or Nut Bread can be the perfect item. Each bite of the muffin or nut bread will be bursting with pumpkin and spice flavors.

Spice Cake and Spice Cupcakes

For something a little less pumpkin-y and a little more spice-y, take home a Spice Cake or Spice Cupcake. This is sure to be a flavor you can certainly enjoy all season. We infuse our delicious vanilla cake with ample amounts of our signature spice blend. Our decorators then cover and fill the cake with generous helpings of our homemade cream cheese icing before sprinkling our spice mix around the edges. 

Pumpkin Pie

The pie that started it all…

Our Pumpkin Pie has been around longer than any of the Pumpkin Spice products listed above. We have been making this pie with our signature spice blend that has remained a family favorite for more than 30 years. No matter if you top it with whipped cream or simply grab a fork and eat it straight from the pan, our Pumpkin Pie can be just what you need after a long day.

Pumpkin Spice is worth the wait

We hope you will join us for another amazing pumpkin season. No matter if you’re joining in the Pumpkin Donut fun, grab a Pumpkin Muffin or Nut Bread, bring a smile to someone with a Spice Cupcake, or simply grab a fork and dig into a Pumpkin Pie, we hope you enjoy each and every bite of our homemade goodies.

As always, we make our products on site using the best ingredients. We use non-GMO flour and never add preservatives or chemicals of any kind to our products.

Our philosophy is simple: If we wouldn’t serve it to our family, we won’t serve it to yours.

Thank you for your continued support of our family business.

Teacher Gifts All Year Long

Teacher Gifts All Year Long!

The school year has just begun but it’s never too early to start showing your appreciation for the men and women who pour into our children. Teacher gifts in the form of volunteer hours or teacher supplies can be a major help in almost any classroom.

But what about a gift in a sweeter form? 

Gifts for your child’s teacher can be in the form of a weekly treat for well-behaved students or even for those who meet their reading requirements. Some teacher gifts can be more personal, such as a personalized cookie or their favorite cupcake.

Cookies for the class

Bringing cookies to your child’s classroom may be a great way to show your appreciation to the teacher…provided you’ve cleared it with them ahead of time. When the classwork becomes mundane, a small treat in the form of an M & M cookie can be just what the entire class needs. Just be sure to bring enough for the teacher to have a couple as well.

Favorite cupcakes

Does your child’s teacher have a favorite food or dessert? A great way to build a rapport with anyone is through food. And what better way to get to know your child’s teacher than with a cupcake?

As the year progresses and your relationship with your child’s teacher grows, you can discover what they like and don’t like. Some teachers love chocolate while others don’t. You may find out about a favorite restaurant a teacher frequents every Friday morning. No matter what it is, finding a teacher gift that is perfect doesn’t have to be difficult.

Personalized cookies

“A person’s name is to that person, the sweetest, most important sound in any language.” –Dale Carnegie

We’ve made teacher gifts for more than 20 years. One of the most popular gift year after year is a personalized cookie. No matter if it’s a simple design or elaborate details, add a special message or the teacher’s name to a cookie. When you go the extra mile and show your child’s teacher how much you appreciate all they do it can be the added boost they need.

Staff and teacher gifts

The school as a whole is responsible for the care of your child. Don’t forget to thank them for their hard work! Bring an assortment of donuts or a tray of cookies on a random day just to say ‘thank you.’ Sometimes, even the smallest of things can go a long way in rejuvenating an entire faculty.

Ingredients and food allergies

There are some schools and classrooms which don’t allow outside foods due to allergies or ingredient concerns. It’s important to note: we are NOT a peanut-free facility. We have ingredient lists on our website for iced cookies and some everyday cookies, however, we always stress to error on the side of caution when serving any foods containing potential allergens.

As always, we appreciate you and continue to be grateful to be a part of your celebrations. We are most happy to assist you in planning your teacher gifts for this school year.

Thank you.

Back to School…Again!

Back to School Time Again

It’s back to school time again and we’re so excited! We LOVE seeing all the fresh faced, mostly smiling children before and after school. While you have been scrambling to get school pens and pencils, new clothing and shoes, and those cute little notebooks with puppies or kittens on them, we’ve been busy little bees getting ready for you.

Back to school time means that most of our customers will return to their regular morning habit of stopping in for a quick bite, coffee, or even a special donut for your littles. To help make your mornings run a little smoother, we’re highlighting some quick and generally healthy breakfast and lunch ideas.


Every parent experiences some sort of morning rush throughout the school year- especially in the first weeks of back to school time. No matter if it’s a case of a silent alarm clock, a bad hair day, or even those pesky shoes that go missing overnight, sometimes just getting everyone out the door before the school bell rings is an accomplishment.

We’ve all been there.

Some of us have set up camp there…just saying.

That’s another topic for another day. So, to ease your morning stress and to help you fuel your children before school, we’ve put together a list of some of our most popular breakfast items.

Breakfast Sandwich

Our breakfast sandwiches are made with freshly cracked eggs and homemade bread. You can add your choice of meat including ham, turkey, bacon, or sausage. Add cheese if you’d like. We offer American, Swiss, Provolone, and Cheddar.

Want some veggies mixed in? Just ask.  

If you’re running short on time, give us a call ahead of time. That way, your breakfast sandwich can be hot and ready when you walk through our doors.

Donuts & Danish

A donut may not provide the protein that a breakfast sandwich does, but it will provide energy for your child to start their school day. We offer over 20 varieties of donuts on a daily basis. And if we don’t have what your little angel wants, we will do our best to whip one up.

Cheese pockets are among our most popular Danish in the morning. And other Danish such as apple or pecan, provide a little more protein as well as energy. Our daily Danish variety includes cherry, blueberry, lemon, and meltaway.

Parents, don’t forget your own needs. We have hot coffee brewing all morning long. And after you drop your littles off, swing back in to reward yourself with a treat.


Do you know we also offer cold sandwiches in the morning?

If you’re low on time or even sandwich supplies, we can make your child’s school sandwich while you eat breakfast. Ham and cheese, turkey and cheese, even peanut butter and jelly can all be ready by the time you leave for school. If you call ahead, you’ll have time to pick out a cookie too.

Fletcher Lunch

For more than 11 years, we’ve created a special menu for high school students and teachers. This menu is designed to be quick, easy, and affordable. This tradition will carry on this year as well. If you’re a Fletcher High School student or teacher, be sure to ask for the Fletcher menu when you come in.

After School Treats

Children coming in for after school treats is a wonderful tradition. It brings us so much joy when little faces light up at the sight of all the cookies in our case. Cookie varieties vary daily, but you can be sure to see sugar cookies, decorated cookies, or one of our everyday cookies in the case any time you come in.

Everyday Teacher Gifts

Teachers like apples, but they LOVE cookies even more. We can’t be 100% sure, but there’s a good chance your child will get a super big smile when they bring a treat from Cinotti’s into the classroom.

Back to School

It’s hard to believe it’s back to school time again. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the commencement of 7 of our employees. 

No matter if you have one celebrating their last year or one whose just beginning their journey, we are here. Come cry over a donut or celebrate with a cupcake.

From breakfast and lunch to school treats and gifts, our team is ready to help you in any way. As always, we sincerely thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family traditions.
