Well, December is upon us and we're the only nut-free bakery in the Lower Mainland so Holiday baking orders are coming in like crazy. As well, we have a special called "All your Holiday Baking for $57". If you click on the "Holiday Baking" link you'll get all the details! As to the word "Holiday" instead of "Christmas Baking", for example, we have also just done some Hanukkah cake balls - several orders, in fact. Prior to that we did painted Diwali cookies. But pretty much now, yes, it's Christmas.
It's great to have our own kitchen this year as opposed to renting one! Plus we have an amazing baker, Rachel! She can crank out baked goods like there's no tomorrow. We are also able to do lots more things such as decorated truffles, gluten-free shortbread (as well as other gluten-free cookies), and a much higher volume of sales. We are also offering FREE DELIVERY in White Rock (what other White Rock bakery does that?) You can order via email, pay with Paypal (or a credit card) and have grandma receive a special surprise! You can also order Christmas baking over the phone and pay with your credit card!
Walk-in customers are few and far between on East Beach during winter. We are often the only place open! But we still have ice cream because after all - it's frozen. And we have now partnered with "Serious Soups" in Surrey to serve 11 flavours of soup daily and free-range turkey chili. We heat-to-order with hot steam! Serious Soups has the same brand as we do - all natural. No MSG or other additives and nothing fake, low sodium, etc. Delicious soups! You can come in for a hot bowl or take a 2-serving bag home for dinner. To go with the soups we're making our own SOURDOUGH rolls and PUMPERNICKEL rolls, as well as our regular dinner rolls. (Rachel started the sourdough from scratch and it has turned out wonderfully! Kudos to the VCC Pastry School grad!) Of course we're still making our delicious coffee, lattes, gourmet hot chocolate, and for Christmas we're featuring a homemade hot cider drink too. Come on down and support your local business, try some Christmas baking, visit with baby Creba (he's usually full of smiles for all the customers!)
