Operation 'Cookies for a Valentine'
Aloha my lovely readers. I cannot believe that in just 3 months time, this blog of mine would be 1 year old.
How fast time flies! Plenty of things has changed for me. I'm back in school, running away from the working world for now, but still as passionate about baking and cooking as before. And man, I've tried so many different recipes and opened my eyes to so many different cuisines out there! I have made so many new friends and even gotten lovely parcels from people all over the world thanks to the Blogging By Mail event.
Amazing stuff I tell you.
Right now, I'm in the midst of planning this whole online bakery thing as I've posted before. Well I'm not going to launch it yet, BUT, hey I have a 'preview' prelude thing coming up. I'm sure most of the local readers will benefit from it :)
What am I talking about?
As you all know, Valentine's Day is coming soon. And I've decided to sell some of my baked goods. I've received requests and well it seems from your comments that some of you actually want to buy my stuff if I ever sold them.
So I'm taking a chance and allowing orders to start flowing! :)
I hope I'll be able to pull it off, what with school just re-opening. This being the case, I cannot accept too many orders so I'll limit it to maximum of 3 jars per person.
Now, what am I going to sell? Cookies of course. I'm sure you all have read about the cookies I've baked. Since this if for V-day, I'm going to have some V-day themed cookies and some normal ones you can give your loved ones. Here's what I'm offering:
1. Dried-Cranberry Shortbread Hearts
2. Citrus Cornmeal Shortbread*
3. Snowball Cookies/ Hershey's Surprise Kisses
4. Chocolate Chunk Cookies
*you can request for heart shaped ones.
There you have it! I will call this Operation 'Cookies for a Valentine'.
From now until the 31st of January to place your orders. Do note that I'm rather flexible so you can make special requests. Like if you just want to have a few HUGE heart shaped cookies instead of a jar of small ones, let me know. Or other customisation you might have in mind. For example, the snowball cookies as you know, come with a hidden Hershey's kiss. You can request for a dark chocolate or milk chocolate kiss. Make sure you specify.
oh yes, pricing-wise, it's SGD$15 per jar except for the snowball cookies - that would be SGD$20. Why is it slightly more expensive? The ingredients my dear. I'd have to get Hershey's kisses won't I? And just to clarify, I only use quality ingredients for all my cookies so don't worry, you'll be paying for good stuff! hahaa... You might be wondering how big one jar is? Here's a photo:
Measurements: 5 inches tall, with a diameter of 4 inches.
Please place your orders via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't forget to leave down your contact details too ya.
Collection date of the cookies will depend on how early you order. I'll probably meet you personally to pass them to you - perhaps somewhere central. Again, I'll confirm details really soon or when I reply to your email.
Forgive me if there are any hiccups along the way. It's my first time doing this online and I'm doing this to test-drive the whole online-bakery idea. Thanks for your understanding and thanks for all the support guys! Really appreciate it! Love ya'll!
P.S. In case you don't fancy cookies or want something that's not on that list up there, and perhaps you just want to savour my other baked goods, do pop me and email and maybe we can work something out! :)
