Fat Witch Bakery is so busy in December that sometimes we end up extra-loading the last available rack. It’s all good. More racks next year!
Sending our brownies across the USA is exciting. We are a small bakery with production space in upper Manhattan and ship 7,500 brownies almost every day in December. It takes a bit of magic to rearrange racks to end up with gifts to be shipped.
We manage to stay talking with each other, although sometimes with a bit of a witchy attitude. At the end of the day, we go home and get ready for the next. ☺
One of the items we often sell out of is Witch Ends, which are created by cutting off the edges from pans of Fat Witch Original and Carmel Witch brownies. Thank goodness our sales are increasing so we can keep up. One of these days, we will need to bake just for this product.
I have been pondering lately about popular thinking. At one point in time, people thought the world was flat. Up until the 16th century, this seemed logical. Thank goodness some observant folk noticed ships dropping off the horizon. What one saw was not really the end.
At the other end of the Pacific Ocean from California is Asia. 2016 has been a great year! We opened a shop in Kyoto, Japan.
Despite being at the end of popularity for this book, I loved it. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is delightful. On a winter afternoon, it’s the perfect read. BTW, it was originally written in Swedish. While I usually steer clear of novels translated into English, this book is a charmer in any language.
Check out your December Witchscopes.
And, don’t forget to bake.
