Hello Pie Lovers,
The season is already getting off to a busy start for me, as it does every year at this time. There is so much to tell you. First of all I want to wish everyone a safe and happy season this year. I worry for everyone now that the cooler weather is coming. Be careful and be well.
I have started a subscription bread service for those who love the Sweetcie Pie sourdough. Some of you have already subscribed! By claiming a share of all the future bread bakes, you are providing a promised market for my bread. That pledge means a lot to me. Thank you! Included up on the shop are some new items that I eat at home with my bread. These are my personal stashes that I share to make it easy for you to sample things like tinned sardines. Take a look, if you haven't already.
There are added benefits to becoming a Sweetcie Pie shareholder, some explicit and some not. You will have early access to pie pre-orders. This removes the anxiety of competing for pie (which is the unfortunate reality of coveting pies from a one person bakery). Shareholders are likely guinea pigs for test bakes and experiments. You can take pride in the knowledge that you are the 'community' in a community supported bakery relationship. :-)
Because of operating in a pop up mode, I felt a need to provide a calendar up on the web shop. Please feel free to refer to it any time you have a question about dates. The dates are subject to change, but I do keep it up to date to the best of my ability. I personally did not find the mobile version completely intuitive, so I made an Instagram story to help you use it on your mobile device. It's in my Instagram highlights if you need it.
Please read on in the Sweetcie Pie Happenings the details for Thanksgiving Pie orders and other events. It's a busy month. Remember that pumpkin and pecan pies from Layer Cake Bakery are now also offered.
This coming week is the last for supporting the #bakethevote2020 campaign where 10% of sales for September and October will be contributed to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund for voters' rights. The election is just days away. Be heard, vote!
