Goin’ Legal – Pt 3: Extras

Pt 1 Pt 2 All those permits and licenses add up, for the record. I had some money to get going, but I also wanted to have food liability insurance for my bakery. Neither that nor the Cottage Food Operation permit are inexpensive, and I knew I also need some […]


Goin’ Legal – Pt 2 2

Part 1 Now for the big step of making my bakery legal… the Cottage Food Operation permit. It’s long, gang. Really long. Here are the parts: Attachments: If you’re on public water (you probably are), you have to attach a copy of your recent water bill. If you’re not, you […]


Goin’ Legal – Pt 1 1

I’ve been baking since I could reach the oven, I think. I’ve long joked that my mom is secretly Betty Crocker’s little sister, and she was teaching me how to make chocolate chip cookies and good old Southern red velvet cake as soon as she could (red velvet cake was […]


Local Flavor

A couple of exciting announcements about the bakery! 1. Dark chocolate stout cupcakes are now made exclusively with Dark Star Imperial Oatmeal Stout from Seattle’s own Fremont Brewing! 2.

Homemade Sprinkles 4

*Bunneh Test Kitchen; not for sale* Quite a while back, a coworker (who left work to go to culinary/baking school, and keeps a neat blog about the whole thing) sent me a link to a homemade sprinkles recipe/how-to. I was intrigued, but tucked the recipe away and didn’t get around […]


Nutter Butter Snowmen

*Bunneh baking for fun; not for sale* Another Christmas cookie staple in my family is Nutter Butter snowmen. The base of this project is a package of Nabisco Nutter Butter cookies. I use Wilton candy melts for a lot of my projects, but this one is a bit quicker and […]


Holiday Truffles

*Bunneh Test Kitchen; not for sale* Tonight I made my first attempt at truffles! Using these adorable mini bundt cake pans (mine are from Safeway if you’re looking to get some), I followed the recipe that came with them for “truffle bites.” However, instead of using melted chocolate for the […]
