Pastry Bombing!

Since I closed my cafe, I've missed some things.  Mostly, I miss my regulars.  We loved them! But I also miss baking.  We sold out nearly every day of scones, cinnamon rolls, and muffins.  I rarely had much left. I was told on several occasions that we made the 'best' scones.
So, since baking is one of the few food preparations that can be done from home and sold, I have decided to give it a go.
I always tell my family I hate to cook, but the truth is, I just hate cooking when I have to.  Recently I've been getting into photography and I often find beauty in the weird arrangement and mess created when I cook. This has become a win win for my family...I like making the mess for a great photo, food happens from the mess and so... they get food. Win-Win!
Of course, I must share my photos on Facebook and Instagram so that leads to very nice comments, thank's to my sweet friends...which then leads to some asking if I might make some delights for them....which makes me super happy!
So, I decided I may as well give it a whirligig!
I decided my best form of advertising might be to just give some 'love' away!
And this is where the title of this post, Pastry Bombing, begins!
Just an ordinary afternoon for an unsuspecting individual and BOOM! They're eating something delicious.
So, once a week when I'm out and about...there will be a lucky someone with a pink box of love at their doorstep.

My friend, Steve at Brown's Shoe Fit in Downtown Manhattan, KS was the lucky guy this week! And that little box of love turned into orders! Thank YOU Steve! If you need shoes, he's the guy! Brown's is old school!  The old fashioned shoe store where they actually help you, measure your tootsies, and help you find what you need. Who remembers sitting in the chair while a dapper gentleman fitted you with shoes and even tied them for you...and you were over the age of 5!?  Well, that's what you get with Steve.  When I delivered his goodies, he was doing exactly that.

I made some Cranberry Orange Scones for my sweet friend PC
Steve ordered a half dozen Brazen Sweet Rolls
And my sweet friend, Brooke, is getting a box of BIG Blueberry Muffins!

What can I make for you?
