It's A Sign

It's a sign. . . shining brightly above our green bay windows, towering, over our friendly storefront and illuminating over Pacific Avenue for each passerby to admire.

What used to be Noah's Bagels has now been home to our cozy shop, Buttercup Cakes & Farm House Frosting for over two years. Every morning, our crisp prosciutto and cheese pastries bubble in the oven, mini cupcakes are topped with the freshest berries and our friendly staff brews Alta Organic Coffee. The only thing missing has been our incredible sign.

But the wait is over. Our new sign made by Dominic Boinich and Katrina King from Five Feet from the Moon was installed this morning, Friday, April 13th. Local sign company Northwest Signs, Inc. rolled up their sleeves, pulled out a few ladders and installed our custom sign. Our sign couldn't be more perfect.

I'm sure you've seen our entryway mosaic - our Buttercup Cakes moon shimmers in a ripple of blue tiled waves. Now, the moon in our sign reflects into the blue tile water just as the moon does in the evening on waters surface.  Thank you Beth Purcell for our mosaic.

And to tie it all together, today happens to be Carren's birthday. Happy Birthday Carren :) 

We would like to thank Mayor David Terrazas for helping us with our variance, John Dixon for his love and support, and everyone else who helped make it happen. Thank you to our staff and loyal customers who waited patiently.
