Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial Day celebrations will commence across the city this weekend. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway, a backyard barbecue, or even a graduation celebration, we have everything you need to make this the best Memorial Day yet!

Pause and pay homage

Before we dive into the pool of sugar and spices, let’s take a moment to pause in remembrance. Memorial Day is dedicated to the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We pause on this day to remember their tribute and to pray for the families left behind.

Originally, Memorial Day celebrations took place as a way to honor the men killed during the Civil War. It wasn’t until after World War 1 that ALL states of the Union accepted it as a National day of remembrance. 

Colonel John McCrae wrote the poem “Flanders Field” which tells of the fallen soldiers who live on through the field of poppies. This inspired woman like Moina Michael to write poems and wear poppies in honor of the fallen. The tradition gained momentum when the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to begin the “Buddy Poppy” program which provides aid to disabled veterans.

When you see a man in uniform selling poppies outside the supermarket, banks, and other popular buildings, go ahead and make a small donation and wear your red flower proudly.

Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial Day celebrations will take place across our country the entire weekend. From parades and firework displays to television documentaries and live performances, there will be something for everyone to see and do.

The Jacksonville area will be hosting several events beginning May 24th through May 27th. Lather on the sunscreen and bring plenty of water when you check out these events:

Florida Folk Festival

Head down to White Springs off Highway 41 to enjoy this fun filled festival with the whole family. Three days of celebrations include music, dancing, handicrafts, and live performances designed around the immigrant cultures of the first Floridians. The food cultures represented include Caribbean influences such as chicken pilau, Greek cuisines such as seasoned lamb, and Floridian favorites such as oysters, shrimp, and chocolate covered key lime pie.

Memorial Concert and Picnic in the Park

Make the trek downtown to Memorial Park on Riverside Avenue on Monday to enjoy a free outdoor concert. Display your American pride for this 5:00 pm concert. Pack a picnic and some comfy blankets or chairs so you can relax on the lawns while the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Band performs a myriad of tunes.

Watch a movie under the stars

Join Jacksonville Beaches residents for an evening of entertainment with the aquatic hero, Aquaman. Bring comfy chairs or a blanket along with a picnic snack and relax under the stars for this free movie event. The movie will begin at 9:00 pm but arrive early for the best seating.

Visit the beautiful Jacksonville Beaches

With more than four miles of sand in Jacksonville Beach alone, there is plenty of room for everyone on our shores. Bring the family, bring some shade, lather on the sunscreen, and fill up on fresh water so you can enjoy the weekend fun in the sun.

**For the sake of our environment and the precious ecosystem of our beaches, please bring a bucket for your trash, fill any and all holes, and be mindful of the fragile sea life that call our ocean home.

Celebrate with Cinotti’s

Of course your local bakery is always ready to provide the best treats and sweets to help you celebrate. Grab a few packs of our made from scratch hamburger buns or hot dog buns for your family barbecue. If you’re not a fan of preparing food, order some sandwiches or catered trays from our kitchen.

No Memorial Day celebration should go without sweet treats either. Order customized iced cutout cookies or come in pick out the ones you want from our showcase. Grab a few packages of out patriotic cupcakes for dessert as well.

Thanking those who gave all

Our Memorial Day celebrations always include a tribute to the heroes of our country. We are ever grateful to the men and women who have given their lives in order to afford us our freedoms.

To all our military, police, fire, and first responders who put your lives on the line daily:

we thank you for your time…

And as always, we thank God for America

Easter Egg Cakes for Every Table

Easter Egg Cakes for Every Table

Easter Egg Cakes for Every Table

For more than 50 years, we have created beautiful Easter egg cakes for families to enjoy. These colorful cakes are used as centerpieces, Easter gifts, and as a dessert treat for Easter dinner.

What makes our Easter egg cake so special?

Our Easter egg cakes are made from scratch right here in our Jacksonville Beach bakery. Our master bakers use age old techniques to create cakes in various flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, Kylie, and more.

As with most of our products, we use only non-GMO flours and never add any preservatives, chemicals, or un-pronouncable ingredients. Our rules of baking are simple:

If we won’t feed it to our own children, we don’t want to feed it to yours.

Design your own Easter egg cake

Once cooled, our Easter egg cakes are ready for decorating. You’ll find an array of pastel, bright, and marbled colored egg cakes in our showcase and each one is individually decorated. From blooming flowers to underwater paradise, we can create the perfect Easter egg cake for your holiday table.

Cake flavor

If you order well in advance, you can choose the flavor, color, and design for your egg cake. This year, we’re offering vanilla, chocolate, ½ & ½, and our famous Kylie cake (baked with colorful sprinkles).

Icing choices

You can design your Easter egg cake with our homemade chocolate buttercream or vanilla buttercream in an wide range of colors. We recommend choosing an icing color that will match your overall design.

Design options

Each of our Easter egg cakes is unique in its design.

Traditional eggs include gentle icing swags, buttercream roses, and intricate details in pastel colors.

Favored eggs can feature sugar paste flowers surrounded by Easter grass, puffy flowers in neon colors, or even a brightly colored underwater paradise.

Eclectic eggs can include our famous plaid egg with nearly every color in our fandex, paint splatter design created with bright colors, and even cakes with lady bugs piped all over.

Custom designs will be catered to your desires. If you want an orange and blue design with an over-sized gator piped on the top, we can create it. If you want an ornate Faberge egg design in pastel colors, we can make that as well.

Order your Easter egg cakes soon

While we can create almost any design, we are limiting the amount of custom orders. We highly recommend placing all Easter orders by Wednesday, April 17. This will allow us to make final preparations and begin the process of creating the best Easter products for you and your family.

Easter Cookies for Everyone

Easter Cookies for Everyone

Easter Cookies for Everyone

Each year our collection of cookie cutters grows and this Easter is no exception. We have procured an array of Easter cookies that will bring happiness even the most stubborn bunny in your family.

This Easter season, we will be unveiling our newly acquired cutters. Don’t worry if you like those cute little cookies from last year, we will have those as well.

Easter cookies

From cute little bunnies popping out of an egg to the fun shaped carrot bunny house, our decorators have been busy this season. Bring your little bunnies in to see the colorful display case filled with hand-crafted goodies. You may see speckled eggs, traditional eggs, baby chicks, bunnies, Easter baskets, bunny faces, and more!

Foods for Lent

Foods for Lent

Foods for Lent

Ash Wednesday kicks off a season of fasting and prayer for many Christians. Some may give up social media while others give up their favorite foods. In year’s past, some of our customers have chosen to abstain from sweets while others have even chosen to completely give up coming to our bakery for the entire 40 days of Lent! While we are honored to be such a big part of your walk, we invite you to consider alternative foods for Lent you may find in our bakery.

Alternative Breakfast

Egg Sandwich

Low sugar meals are a huge part of Lent traditions. But preparing foods for Lent that aren’t full of sugar can wreak havoc on your morning routine. If you’re tight on time on school mornings, hop in for a warm egg sandwich on a toasted bagel. We have cheese and bread options to suit almost every taste bud. And you can call your order in before leaving your house and cut your wait time down. You and your little ones can fill up on a healthy meal and you can feel good about keeping your Lent promise…just close your eyes as you walk past the donut case.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal ranks high on the foods for Lent list for many reasons. Oatmeal is filling and low in calories making it the perfect breakfast for those watching their sugar intake. We have topping options that include brown sugar (add a smidge to your bowl for flavor), cinnamon (a natural sweetener), honey (from local farms), and milk. You can bring in your favorite granola or fruit toppings to mix in as well.  

Peanut Butter & Honey Bagel

Order a wheat bagel toasted with peanut butter and honey to start your morning off with a powerful breakfast. The protein packed peanut butter will keep you full while also providing ‘good fats’ which can aide in reducing cholesterol. And, we use locally grown honey which can help reduce pollen allergies and sinus inflammation.

Hot Cross Buns

Perhaps the most iconic of breakfast foods for Lent is the Hot Cross Bun. Our buns are made of a buttery dough with red and green cherries as well as raisins. They are topped with a cross made of icing to give just a touch of sweetness to the dough.

Lent Approved Lunches

Egg Salad

Move over Meatless Mondays. Fridays in Lent mean meatless meals for many families. Use UberEats or GrubHub to have a freshly prepared egg salad sandwich delivered right to your door. Ask for it on toasted white bread, wheat bread, or even an unleavened pita pocket.

Salads

Most of our salads are served with chicken or meat of some kind, but during Lent, you can request a change of protein. Our salad plate is served with three scoops of prepared salads such as tuna, egg, chicken, macaroni, or potato on a bed of lettuce with tomatoes. Our chef salad is served with ham and turkey, but we can happily substitute the meat for added cheese or a meatless topping of your choice.

Tuna Salad

If fish is an approved item on your foods for Lent list, try our tuna salad on toasted whole wheat bread. This delicious meal will not only fuel your body, it can also increase your brain’s ability to communicate to your nerve cells. Add a bit of romaine lettuce and a fresh tomato and you’ve got yourself a powerfully packed lunch.

What are your favorite foods for Lent?

Does your family celebrate with different foods for Lent? Come on in and share some of your favorite family traditions, foods, and activities.

Thanksgiving Week: Special Hours

Thanksgiving Week: Special Hours

Thanksgiving Week: Special Hours

For Thanksgiving week, we change our hours in an effort to provide the freshest baked goods for everyone. Our hard working staff work around the clock chopping, weighing, baking, and decorating cookies, cakes, pies, and full dinners. To show our appreciation to our dedicated staff family, the entire bakery shuts down from Thursday through Saturday of Thanksgiving week. 

Thanksgiving Week Hours

Monday November 19, Tuesday November 20, and Wednesday November 21, we will be open from 6am to 5pm.

During our open hours, we will stock our shelves with all the Thanksgiving treats and traditions you’ve come to expect over the years. 

 

Ordering your products in advance

While we will be working hard to provide fresh cookies, cakes, pies, and breads for the community, we cannot guarantee anyone an item without an advanced order. If you have a special cookie in mind to share with your loved ones, we strongly urge you to call or come in to place your order before noon on Monday November 19.

We will not accept or change any orders submitted after noon on Monday November 19. With the thousands of order we have to process in two days, there is no way to search, add, or cancel any pre-existing orders. We will, however, strive to stock our cases with cookies, pies, rolls, cakes, and breakfast goodies. These treats will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

Emailing questions or orders

Unfortunately, our entire staff will be busy preparing the thousands of baked goods over the three days of Thanksgiving week. While we will try to answer emails, we cannot guarantee it will be in a timely manner.

Storing and reheating your Thanksgiving Dinner

When you pick up your meal, it will be chilled and should go directly into your refrigerator until you are ready to serve. To reheat your meal follow these instructions:

Turkey: Preheat oven to 325. Remove plastic wrap and leave the turkey in foil pan-do not remove top foil. Heat in oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove the foil, carve and enjoy.

Side Orders: To reheat the side dishes, preheat oven to 325. Please remove the top of the container and cover with foil if desired. Reheat side dishes for 30 minutes or until internal temp reaches 185 degrees.

Rolls: Pre-heat oven to 300. Remove the rolls from the package, cover with foil, and heat in the oven 10-15 minutes or until hot.

We are thankful for you

No matter what you serve or who you choose to prepare your holiday meal, we sincerely hope you spend the day making memories with loved ones. We are thankful for your understanding of our staff’s much deserved days off during Thanksgiving week. And we are especially thankful for your continued support of our family business. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

With Easter hopping on our heals, most families are busy preparing their traditional celebrations.  These traditions are important whether you plan on attending Easter Services, enjoying a large family gathering, or attending the neighborhood Easter egg hunt.  And, as much as we plan our day around our faith or traditions, one elemental item seems to be prominent in Easter celebrations.  The food.  And, with the popularity of the Easter egg, we have an item that fits into both categories… The Easter Egg Cake.

Our Easter Egg Cake is a pleasant compliment to any Easter table setting. And, you don’t have to worry about refrigeration. Leave this work of art out during your gathering as added decor to your day. Each cake will serve up to ten guests and is available in vanilla, chocolate, or Kylie cake.
