gifts

 Locally + regionally sourced by small-independent designers, textile artists, printers, and florists alike, there is something for every occasion. Handmade items meant to last a lifetime make amazing one-of-a-kind gifts and support local makers.

Hospitality

 Meeting at the shop for Friday Fika with your friends? Grabbing a seat outside to sip your iced mocha and read a book? Or just stopping by to grab a treat before you head to a party? We've got a spot for everything! 

Ethical.

 

 Like you, we care about how the goods we buy were made and about who made them. By choosing a local business that heeds transparency in all ingredients, you can make a difference, know that your goods were made ethically, and that your purchase supports a greater cause. To Hopscotch, that means using real butter, never margarine. Real cream, and never fake substitutes. Real products made by us by hand and never bought in to display as our own.

ORIGINAL.

Because Hopscotch uses from-scratch ingredients and hand make every item, no two pieces are exactly alike. Each piece is unique, just like your event. Your personality and your style reflect what your desserts should be. We have a certain style and aesthetic that is original to us, and recognizable in the piping and decorating techniques we use. 

COMMUNITY-FOCUSED.

Starting in 2015, Hopscotch began selling custom cakes to friends and family.  Branching out later to sell at local farmers markets. We have always worked with our local neighborhood and community in mind by using Kilgus cream, Hodgson Mill and Severson Farms flours and oats, local apples from Prairie Fruits Farms and blueberries picked just 20 minutes away. We have done collaborative work with Watson's Shack & Rail, Art Mart,  Art Theatre CoOp, and Willow Creek farm just to name a few. 

MADE IN CHAMPAIGN.

 

 

 

Good things are just around the corner.

 

Hopscotch began as a way to create something beautiful out of simple, local ingredients. It is our mission to expand neighborhood- and community-based local businesses.

We are located at 802 West John Street in Champaign, Illinois.
