There is so much to blog about. We should be bloggin' more often but there are only so many hours in the day and we spend most of them baking and setting up shop.
First things first. We only have 11 days to go on our Kickstarter page and we're still a long way from our goal! Please take a look and pledge, even if it's just $10! Every little bit helps. www.kickstarter.com/projects/1437339688/strawberry-blonde-bakery-allergen-free-baking-in-o
Starting a bakery is risky business and we'd like to reduce that risk with your support! And you'll get some sweet treats out of it plus satisfaction knowing that you're helping build a strong local community and suppporting two gals follow their dream. It's a win-win all around!!!
The 2nd piece of news is that we've finally moved out of Rainbow's kitchen and into our new space! Our commercial oven has yet to be installed. That has been a learning process, let us tell you! Here's the lesson in a nut-free nut shell: Always get at least 2 different quotes from different contractors when you need any sort of work like this done. One company quoted us $3400 for the work and the other $1290! That's still $1290 we weren't expecting to pay, but that's one whole heck of a lot better than $3400!
Our 3rd bit of news is that we've finally decided on a day for our Grand Opening. We'll be throwing a party on November 2nd from 11am-3pm. We'll be announcing more details about the event soon so keep your little peepers peeled! The excitement! The suspense! Hope to see you there!!!
