After years of working from my certified kitchen, I’m finally taking the plunge. I’m taking the huge leap of love to bring Delish to a store front. OMG!!! Squeeeeeee!!!!
Delish will be located in the wonderfully remodeled Medford Center next door to Baja Fresh. It was the perfect place for what I want to bring to our community. It’s high-end look and stylish stores seemed like the perfect place to bring Delish’s custom looks and high quality ingredient.
With a focus of making a stronger woman community through support, inspiration, and connectivity, I hope we create something wonderful together.
A favorite in the brownie world is the mocha brownie. Mixed in with the chocolate is a deep roasted coffee flavor highlighted by bittersweet chocolate chips. It’s the perfect reason to have a brownie for breakfast.
As you can see, the website is getting a makeover. This is only the first step in some new things for Delish. Thank you for your patience as we work through the kinks. Keep checking back in the next couple months for exciting update.
After hearing about it from one of our friends for months, we recently took the plunge and added our little bakery to Instagram. We’re so excited to share quick pictures of Delish’s oven lovin’ with you. (Follow us at Delish_or.)
What’s been even more exciting is seeing the great pictures you’ve taken when you’re enjoying Delish. In fact, it’s been so fun, we’ve hashtagged these photos with #delishie. If you haven’t seen them, check out some of these beauties:
Aren’t you dying from the sweetness? And we’re not even talking about our treats. We’d love to see more of your creativity on our timeline. Have fun with it and show off your personality. Make sure to tag @delish_or, hashtag the photo with #delishie, and we’ll feature your picture on our Facebook page.
When you hear the words cookie bouquet, does your mind travel to bright colored flowers, birthday themed balloons, or maybe even adorable pink rattles? People usually move to the cute area when talking about sending cookies to their loved ones for a special event.
Last year, a client ordered a Day of the Dead cookie set to send for a birthday celebration. There were a lot of puzzled looks when I showed people the picture. “For a birthday?” they asked. Day of the Dead was her favorite thing so of course it made a wonderful bouquet. It also sparked an idea. Why must the bouquets look sweet? Shouldn’t they tell you more about who they’re going to?
This thought happened to coincide with seeing interesting art pieces popping up on Facebook. They’re everyday items themed after some of your favorite heroes and villains. One of the most interesting pieces was a coffee table fashioned like Jason from Friday the 13th. I thought if you could make the gruesome a casual conversation piece in your living room, why couldn’t you make it a cookie? And my idea was born for the perfect birthday themed cookie bouquet.
I know I won’t be sending my mother the blood splattered cakes for her birthday, but I do love them. Really, I love everything about this set. They’re the perfect combination of capturing the character in a friendly way. This could be the perfect gift for the horror fan in your life.
Once upon a time there was a baker who turned bands into cookies. It’s been a while since I’ve ventured into that cookies-based-on-a-band world. Usually, I kept my sights pretty limited to The Airborne Toxic Event. Sure, I had that one brief post devoted to The Limousines, but let’s get real. Those cookies sucked. (Don’t worry Eric and Gio, I’ve got a plan to make it up to you.) There was also my short glimmer of genius when I made Matt and Kim dance, but it was long ago and only lasted 30 seconds. So when a client asked about cookies for one of her favorite bands, Kodaline, I wondered if I could live up to the challenge to magic happen.
Maybe I would be able to channel something great because they were one time an opening act for TATE? Seemed like a stretch. Or could I fall in love with their music to make the icing would flow from the fingers. There wasn’t enough time to delve deep into proper fan obsession. Or probably, and most realistically, I could create something because I’ve seen tons of fan love for them on my Facebook feed and understood how it important it is to them. It was time to research.
I was lucky. The client was hella cool and let me pick what I wanted to do. This is a gift and a curse because what if you don’t live up to expectations? What if your package shows up and they’re like “Meh.” It needed to be something fun. Some spectacular. Something that truly screamed fan love.
I knew from the beginning I wanted to do the band. (That’s what she said. You knew I had to, right?) As I’ve admitted before, I’m a terrible artist. This would be no Mona Lisa on a cookie. Luckily, they have pretty distinct faces. And facial hair. I thought I could make cookie renditions that pick up on the things which make each unique. The accompanying cookies also needed to mean something. There name had to be there, but what else? Since they are from Dublin, Ireland and I love that damn city, those were a no-brainer. And then I needed something for Courtney. Something meaningful for the lovely lady who requested the tribute in the first place. For her, I piped the song lyrics she loves the most.
This is how Kodaline cookies, AKA Koda Kookies, came to be.
Now you can match them to their faces. Or you could go look them up. Yanno, give their music a try and say it was all because of Courtney’s cookies.
Our wonderful client Courtney delivered cookies to her fair princes in Boston. The band recognized her lovely fan devotion with a public declaration.
And they lived happily ever after.* The End.
