So, I’ve decided to try something. Many of you may already know the situation I’m currently in, but I do need some help. I don’t wanna give my sob story and try to emotionally manipulate anyone, but I will tell you I make some bomb-ass cookies ‘n shit.
My future life plan thing is to live in New Zealand and own a vegan and allergen-friendly bakery. Currently, I’m flat broke and sleeping on a couch at my grandma’s and can’t get hired apparently. My aunt runs a little crochet business through Etsy and one time I bought cookies from a friend of mine in Chicago, so I figured maybe I’d try my hand at doing that sort of thing.
Basically, a little internet bakery of sorts. You can ask for whatever, vegan, gluten-free, some sort of fancy cookie idea; and I’ll see if I can whip up a good recipe or change one I already have. Mostly cookies for now, perhaps that’d be the easiest and safest to ship and be alright.
Current recipes already in stock include: sugar, iced sugar, snickerdoodle, oatmeal, chocolate chip, and more, as well as add-ons for these [e.g. oatmeal w/chocolate chip & cranberries]
There can even be custom orders of sugar cookies in fandom-related, holiday, birthday, etc. designs and themes.
Eventually as I bake for fun or fulfill orders, I’ll take progress shots and post the pictures as well as newly added ‘in-stock’ recipes.
To help me get started, you can be a ~benefactor of sorts and donate via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, they’re linked to the same account. I plan on keeping detailed accounts of all donations and orders. Once there’s progress, I’d love to send out gifts to people who made donations. A free cookie order or maybe a gifset of something, whatever I can make that you’d want.
To go about placing an order, etc. please contact me first through the Tumblr messaging system on the blog or through email. Don’t send any money through paypal until the order is official.
There’s no real set prices yet, but generally I would think 20 USD to cover shipping, packaging, and the cookies themselves, maybe 15 in one order? I would love feedback on what anyone might think would be good prices and cookies per order, and of course I’d be willing to adjust prices and things to what you could afford.
Considering where I live, Customs stuff, and shipping costs, for now I can only ship to places within the USA. If you’re outside the US or can’t buy anything right now, it’d be very helpful if you could get the word out or keep me in mind when I get to have my own, tangible bakery. c:
