It’s a been a wild week for our Suffolk bakery!
We never seem to know what month we’re in. One minute we’re working on our halloween cake range, the next minute we’re packaging Christmas Cake.
It’s been a very busy time here at BATB HQ. I’ve been working on lots of lovely corporate Christmas brownie gift boxes. Pulling quotes together, creating design mock-ups for personalised/ branded brownie boxes and so much more!
This year, we have come so far with our product range. It’s crazy to think that this time last year, we only sold brownies. In the last 10 months alone, we’ve introduced wholesale cakes, hot chocolate stirrers, fudge, cheese scones, cinnamon buns (to name a few). Bean Daddy has been so creative, it’s no wonder we had to get Super Sue on board.
More about Super Sue
For those of you who don’t know, Super Sue is our amazing sous chef! She has a lifetime’s worth of commercial kitchen experience and she’s also very good at adjudicating when necessary. Luke and I have become so used to working with just the two of us, it’s great to have another point of view.
Some of you may have been fortunate enough to have met lovely Super Sue at local markets. She regularly runs Rickinghall Village Hall Farmer’s Market for us, and any others that we need her for.
Super Sue is one of the hardest working people we’ve ever come across, she’s very funny, friendly and we don’t know how we managed without her!
Sadly the week is about to get even more wild…
And not in a good way! There’s another Royal Mail strike planned this week, so we’re urging you to make sure that your brownies are posted well in advance. Our brownies have an excellent shelf life and can last of run to 14 days in the fridge (in an airtight container). Nobody ever complained about getting early brownies in the post, right?
Also this week…
We are very sorry to report that yet another scam account has set-up calling itself something very similar to us. This time around, they’re targeting our competition on Instagram and Facebook and trying to get people to give them their card details. For the record; we would never ask you for your bank details, card details or anything other than your address and mobile number (for delivery notifications). We would also never set up a separate social media account to notify people of their wins. If you have been affected, please notify the police, trading standards, block on Facebook, contact your bank and make sure your cards are blocked.
