It’s another one of those “I’ve been working on so many super incredibly awesome things that I’m not yet at liberty to talk about, but when you guys find out about them you’re going to be marginally excited because, let’s face it, there’s only so excited you can actually get about a bakery, I mean it’s not like we’re making talking dogs, and let me tell you THAT is something that I think we can all get behind and get super excited about, but back to the point I’m going to get really excited about them because it’s my company that’s I deal with 24 hours a day, and you’ll all be like ‘Wow, that’s pretty awesome news!’ for like three seconds and then go back to looking at Pinterest (or porn)” days!
As you can imagine, it’s very difficult for me to write Tumblr posts when I’m busting at the seams with news I can’t totally announce for super-duper-realz yet, so I’m going to fill this post with “Lite News”. Pretty much stuff you already know, but I’m just going to remind you about. Though heads up- to make all this secret magic stuff happen I’ve been skimping on the sleep, and therefore am so shot that I don’t know how to make it thrillingly exciting enough for a Friday post. In consolation, here’s a picture of an eggplant that looks like Richard Nixon to get your adrenaline pumping:
That was enjoyable, wasn’t it?
Rosh Hashana begins on Sunday night, and the last day you can get your orders in for our special L’Shanah Tovah cupcake (plus others) or Pomegranate Walnut brownie is TODAY. We’re delivering on Sunday afternoon after 3pm, pick-ups will be available at Robicelli’s at Gourmet Guild by early evening.
If you’re looking to place an order for a party next month- the entire October schedule is already up. You may notice that even though we’re known for releasing new flavors relatively regularly, we’re pretty much not doing that at all this fall. We just have so many seasonal flavors we love- including Matt’s favorite (Pecan Pie) and mine (Butternut Spice)- and such a limited time to release them all (til Thanksgiving), that we’re putting a hold on our MASSIVE development list (because seriously, there’s a good amount of flavors still on deck)(also we’re skimping on new flavors- but NOT on parenthesis. We’re still chock full of those). Maybe next year we’ll release a few, but this year? You guys need more opportunities to make love to Tarte Bourdelou and Sweet Potato Casserole and all those other good ones that came and went so quickly last year.
You know, it just occurred to me- what if that eggplant really was Richard Nixon? Like, one minute you’re the President of the United States, then you’re publicly disgraced, and next thing you know you get reincarnated as an eggplant and end up in some guys hero covered in tomato sauce and mozzarella. What if this happens to all the Presidents?!?!?! Is anyone out there on the internet looking into this? (ok- it’s officially time for me to shut the laptop and get some sleep)(or it’s time to stay up all night looking for corn on the cob that looks like Gerald Ford)
