Christmas Seasonal Items

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

I just got around to updating the bread schedule today.  I just forgot about it with all the special products we are making for Advent and Christmas.

Stollen

Stollen

We’re motoring along with the holiday baking schedule.  We have two successful bakes of Stollen under our belts, so we are starting to feel a little more comfortable.  I’m always a intimidated by the first batch of Stollen every year.  It’s SO radically different than all the other breads we bake, and the ingredient cost is sky high.

I wanted to keep Stollen continuously available throughout Advent, but we are currently sold out until the next batch is finished on Wednesday morning.  We’ll be doing two more bakes next week, and then probably only one the week of Christmas.  Please get your orders in as soon as you can so we can be sure to have one available for you.

Bûche de Noël

Bûche de Noël

New for us this year are Bûche de Noël (Yule Log Cakes).  We are making a version of this French holiday treat that is sized for just 2 or 3 people.  They are beautiful, delicious and perfect for a holiday centerpiece.  We have them available everyday until Christmas.  As with the Stollen, ordering ahead is strongly encouraged.

Yule Logette

Yule Logette

It started as a few leftover pieces from the Bûche de Noël, and then a joke in the back of house.  Now they’ve become a full-fledged product.  (That’s how it is sometimes.  Our popular Red Pepper Parmesan Bread Sticks were invented after we were delivered the wrong type of Parmesan cheese a few months ago.)  Yule Logettes are perfect  for when you are looking for something the size of a cupcake, but more fitting in the season.

Decorated Sugar Cookies

Decorated Sugar Cookies

Finally, there are our cookies.  In addition to our “standard” cookies, we have  decorated Christmas Cookies, Decorated Gingerbread Cookies, and Meringues all ready for your holiday gatherings.  This year we are trying to get ahead of the rush so we can have them in stock throughout Advent, but again, ordering ahead will help you get what you want.

I hope everyone is enjoying the winter weather holiday season.  Stay warm and safe.
