Q. What is a cottage bakery?
A. A cottage bakery is a residentially based operation.
Q. How do I place an order?
A. First, fill out an order inquiry form. We will follow up with you as soon as possible to let you know if your date is available.
Q. How much notice do you need for an order?
A. Orders are prioritized on a first come first serve basis. Your date is more likely to be available when you book in advance. Two weeks notice ensures that I have all the material necessary for your order. I will always take last minute inquiries but cannot guarantee I can fill the order.
Q. Do you ship?
A. We do not ship orders at this time to preserve the quality and integrity of the cookies.
Q. How long do the cookies stay fresh?
A. The cookies are packaged in a bakery box. They remain fresh in the box for up to a week. The cookies stay fresh for longer when stored in an air-tight container. Cookies should not be refrigerated or frozen before an event because it can compromise the design. However, left over cookies can be refrigerated or frozen to enjoy at a later date.
Q. Do you provide discounts for large orders?
A. Our cookies are baked and hand-decorated by one person. Therefore, large orders take more time and effort to produce. We are always willing to work with customers on a limited budget. Cost can be reduced with simpler designs and fewer colors.
