Spring is finally here and with that comes BBQs, parties, weddings, and just straight up fun times! We've been getting a lot of requests for special event cakes so we decided to hire a master cake decorator so you can get the best lookin' cake in town. Meet Shannon! She's passionate about fancying up cakes to make 'em just how you want 'em. Tiered? No problem. Pretty flowers? You bet. You want monkeys? But of course! Shannon can make it happen.
Another thrilling bit of news is that we're having the exterior of our shop painted! Here's a before photo. Can you see the colour of what it will be? There's a little hint on the wall beside the door.
And coming soon - a sign! We can't believe how far we've come in a little over half a year. Thanks everyone for your support and enthusiasm! We're excited to see what the next 6 months has in store for us (and you!)
We've got a couple of announcements for all you lovely ladies and gents. So let's get this show on the road!
NEW STORE HOURS! You heard right, folks! As of April 1st (and we swear this isn't a prank), Strawberry Blonde Bakery will be open 7 days a week to better serve y'all. Our new hours are:
• Monday to Saturday: 10 am - 5 pm
• Sunday: 11 am - 4 pm
NEW PRODUCTS! Boy, Ottawa sure loves its donuts! We did not know what we were getting ourselves into when we started doing fritters, but we're glad we're helping everyone get their fritter fix. We also started making cookie sandwiches, which has been a rampant success. Our work days are filled with so many temptations. Gah!
• NEW EMPLOYEES! Well, sorta. Our marketing dude, Jose, will soon be a full-time fixture at Strawberry Blonde. He's the guy responsible for making us look good, so we're super thankful to have him here full-time!
• GROUPON! We need to thank you for supporting us through our Groupon offer. We sold a whopping 275 packages of 6 - 12 cupcakes, which we did not expect. It's been a mad dash around here lately - we'll all be happy when we don't have to look at a cupcake ever again.
• SIGNAGE! We're getting a "big girl" sign put up out front in time for spring (if it ever comes!). Hopefully, we'll be more visible from Wellington Street. Stay tuned for updates.
Alright, Well, guess that's it! Keep an eye on our FB page for some more exciting happenings!
