Celebrate Julia Child’s Birthday With Something Peachy


On August 15th, the culinary world pauses to remember one of its greats: Legendary chef, author and personality Julia Child, on her birthday.  SusieCakes, an all-American, home-style bakery, is celebrating Julia this day with a peachy keen deal on pie: On August 15th, the Peach Crumble Pie, a new seasonal special, is available for $5 off in honor of Julia Child’s birthday. This offer is available at SusieCakes bakeries in Dallas, Plano and Fort Worth. 

SusieCakes’ all-new seasonal Peach Crumble Pie incorporates Julia’s favorite fruit, the peach.  Julia was enamored of the sweet, flavorful fruit whose seasonal peak was around her birthday, mid-August.  Close friend Jon Rowley gifted Julia her favorite type of peaches every year on her birthday.  In her later years, Julia resided in an assisted living facility in Santa Barbara and, in August 2004, Jon called to see if she would like her birthday peaches sent there.  “I would like that very much,” she answered in her trademark sing-song voice.  The peaches arrived the day Julia passed, and she never was able to taste that particular batch.  To celebrate her life after her passing, those very birthday peaches were used to make an incredible birthday cake that her friends and family enjoyed.

On August 15, SusieCakes is honoring the legacy of Julia Child by offering its all-new Peach Crumble Pie for $5 off its regular price of $27.95 (pre-order your pie for pick-up on Aug. 15th, or walk in and enjoy, while supplies last). The Peach Crumble Pie will be available at SusieCakes through Labor Day.

Julia Child is credited with saying, “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.”  That philosophy is the same at SusieCakes. Inspired by the classic recipes of her two beloved grandmothers, Mildred and Madeline, Susie created a bakery that uses the finest, simplest ingredients to celebrate the every day.

Presenting a welcome alternative to the artificial flavors and preservatives found at most grocery-store bakeries, SusieCakes offers a variety of nostalgic desserts in a friendly, old-fashioned neighborhood experience. Specialties include frosted layer cakes in familiar flavors such as Southern Red Velvet, Six Layer Chocolate and Tropical Coconut, and now a new Italian Cream Cake. A selection of traditional cookies and bars includes soft and chewy snickerdoodles, fudgy brownies, seven layer bars and Susie’s famous whoopie pies. The brand is best known for its classic Vanilla Celebration Cake, custom decorated cakes and its cupcakes, which are filled with delicious frosting, resulting in a moist, yummy cupcake bursting with flavor.

SusieCakes also serves freshly baked breakfast items every morning, such as sour cream coffee cake, house-made maple granola and seasonal fruit crumble muffins. Hand-crafted espresso drinks and expertly brewed single-origin coffees by local micro-roaster Cultivar Coffee are available, as well.

SusieCakes Celebrates Julia Child’s Birthday with $5 off special seasonal Peach Crumble Pie at DFW-area SusieCakes locations: Dallas (Preston Center), Plano and Fort Worth.
