It’s no secret that I have a sweet tooth…or maybe several sweet teeth! I do love a good fresh baked pastry from local New Orleans bakeries where the flavors and textures remind me of home and my childhood. Fortunately, I live in my hometown and can get my favorites any time I please (however unfriendly to my figure). But what happens when you are not so lucky and crave the tastes of home?
Chef Steve started 1-800-Bakery.com in 2004 to bring that fresh bakery items right to your doorstep. He wanted to bring the customer those smells and tastes that remind you of home even when they are many miles away. The concept of an online bakery was new but grew quickly. Before long, Chef Steve collaborated with some of America’s top pastry chef’s to put together a quality collection of the best bakery items from across America. The best part? No middle man. The items are fresh baked and delivered straight to your door.
As a new 1-800-Bakery.com Ambassador, I got the chance to review one of their 2-pound chocolate chip coffee cakes! Made with fresh eggs, rich sour cream and a generous amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips, this cake was delivered to my door wrapped extremely well to retain freshness. After unwrapping, the sweet smell filled the kitchen and I could not wait to dive in! I cut a slice for myself and my two daughters and within minutes they were asking for seconds. The coffee cake was incredibly moist which I wasn’t expecting from a mail order cake. The cake serves 8-10 people and sells for $19.95.
After tasting the coffee cake, I had to know what else 1-800-Bakery.com offers. I found everything from cake pops to cookie bouquets, silky truffles to international delights. Hungry yet?
