We have lots of things for you to click on today, so start limbering up those index fingers!
#1: Now that we have a shop of our own, thereby creating so much damn news all the time that this Tumblr couldn’t possibly hold it all, we’ve moved most of our up-to-the-minute announcements to Faceboook. You’re already following us there? Good.
Problem is, I just know how much you guys will miss my smart-ass mouth, and the long posts I write that seemingly go absolutely nowhere, only to contain maybe two relevant things to the business and then end in a menu. We built this business on my BS the same way we built this city on rock n’roll. We know what you want. You’re sad that I’ve gone from posting 3 times a week to only posting once. I’m also guest blogging over at Food Network for a bit, and working on the beginnings of another book, so I need to save the A-game for those folks until I’m completely positive that their checks will clear.
Plus, you guys have read the book. You now want far more than me that this little website can ever give you. It’s time I delivered.
Now announcing, for the very first time, Robicelli’s So-Freakin-Awesome-You’ll-Convulse-With-Joy Monthly Newsletter!!! (Psssst- that’s the first thing you really need to click on).
(You need to click on this, too. Trust me)
Once a month, I’ll be sending out a long-ish email that’s 100% unfiltered and uncensored. It’ll have news from the kitchen, special sneak previews of recipes we’re working on and things we’re planning on for events, sales that nobody will know about but you, baking tips and techniques, recipes we make at home- lots of stuff, really.
And as always, we promise to never sell this list of any of your email information, because it’s difficult enough for me to figure out how to send these newsletters in the first place, and selling info is a whole other mess I am not capable of ever figuring out. Plus, how much can I really get for it? (if it’s a lot of money, please let me know, because I have kids who will need braces in a few years)
#2: If you follow us on Instagram (once again….”You do follow us on Instagram, right? Good.”), you’ve seen some of the cakes we’ve been making. Like this S’Mores one we made on Monday for the Gina DePalma benefit:
The good news is that one of these cakes can be yours! All you need to do is order one via email, at least 48 hours before you want it. We deliver every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to Manhattan, too, so you don’t even have to come to Bay Ridge.
We’ve temporarily taken down the “Ordering Info” section of this page, since we are having a new website built for us, and had been hoping to get some new menus/ordering systems up and running by now to start integrating the websites. However, it’s taking a bit longer than expected, so we’re going to have to do things ourselves, the low-tech, barely competent way. I could have put all my energy into becoming awesome at baking, or I could have been ok at baking and have a basic understanding of how technology works. I stand by my decisions.
If you want a copy of our cake menu, either pick one up at the store, or click here for your own printable copy! (psssst- that’s the second important link.)
Click on this to listen to while you check out the menu. This song is so good, it has crossover appeal!
#3: I have found two women who are more insane, and more foulmouthed, than me.
They are Dutch. Naturally.
I don’t throw around the words “hilarious” very often, but when two women are going to write an entire blog about me and how great I am, well, they’re aces in my book. Not only are they hilarious, and incredibly smart, and probably great in the sack, but they’ve chosen to bake through every recipe in our cookbook, then blog about it (as well as life, motherhood, and being Dutch, because let’s face it, none of us know what’s going on that doesn’t relate to weed or speedskating).
The name of the blog is The Sleazy Bakeshop (click number 3), but you should also “like” them on Facebook, as, you guessed it, “The Sleazy Bakeshop.” (Prostitutes! I forgot all about those- so weed, speedskating, and prostitutes. Why the hell are we all not living there?)
Watch this so forget about speedskating prostitutes while you’re at work.
