National Pie Day!

Today is National Pie Day, GO PIE!

We had fun giving away pies yesterday to some very deserving people in honor of National Pie Day. It was fun to surprise them with something special. What a great way to start out the year!

It doesn't seem very much like winter lately, but we do have some cute cake & cookie designs for January. I don't mind looking at these "sweet" snowmen!

If you don't have this on your calendars already, I want to make sure you all know that Saturday, January 23rd, is National Pie Day.

Last year, we held our first "Pie it Forward" event with huge success and we want to do it again this year. On Friday, January 22nd, we will deliver free apple pies to celebrate National Pie Day. These pies are not from me, but are from YOU!

Just tell us why you want to "pie it forward" to someone special or to a certain business or organization. Maybe you just want to say "thank you" to a friend for always being there to help, or "I am thinking of you at this difficult time", or perhaps there is a special organization that is always giving, without asking for anything in return. This is your chance to "pie it forward" to someone for doing something nice for you. We will deliver an apple pie on your behalf. Here is what you need to do:
  • Tell us in 100 words or less why your friend, family member, business or organization is deserving of a special "pie it forward" pie. What have they done for you?
  • Send us their name, address and where we can find them on Friday, January 22nd. Don't forget to give us your name and daytime phone number so we can contact you if your entry is selected. We will take requests until 5:30 on Thursday, January 21th.
  • E-mail us your information. Our address to receive the requests is PUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE, PIE IT FORWARD. (This is only for receiving requests, we do not take orders from this address.)
  • You may also fill-out a form here at the bakery.

We are going to choose 12 deserving entries. Unfortunately, all requests can not be filled. Delivery times are up to Cheri's Bakery and , if we are not able to reach someone at the time of delivery, another entry will be selected.

I can't wait to see the surprise of people's faces when the get their pie. This was so much fun last year, we have made it an annual event.

Why not start 2010 in a positive way! No dessert evokes a warmer memories and goodwill than pie.

Bridal Expo Cookies

Here is a video showing all the cute cookies we added to our tables at the show. I am going a bit fast to get it all in, and I apologize for my video skills. I will post photos so you can see them more clearly after the show. We are there again from 12:00 - 5:00 today. Stop by and visit us if you come down. We will have everything on display at the bakery on Tuesday.

Sneak Peek at Bridal Expo Cakes

We had a nice long break after Christmas and enjoyed the time off to re-energize. This week the bakery was busy preparing for the Bridal Expo at Century II. It starts at 10:00 and goes until 5:00 today and 12:00 - 5:00 on Sunday. Here is a little peek at our booth. It is just of the cakes that we got set up last night. Aurora, Sara and I will head down there to finish putting cupcakes on the cupcake tree and adding all the cookies to the tables. If we add them on Friday night, we always seem to be missing a few by morning. I will put a full video of the completed booth after the show. If you are heading down, stop by and say hi! This is the biggest show of the year and we always look forward to it. I hope you like our new designs.

Cheri's on Facebook!

I hope everyone is off to a good start on 2010. I am still relaxing and being as lazy as possible while the bakery is closed. We go back to work Tuesday the 5th. The bakery is still decorated for Christmas. So our biggest project is to get everything put away and clean when we get back.

If any of you are on facebook, I have just gotten a page going for the bakery. It is Cheri's Bakery Wichita. Please be a fan to learn about what is new at the bakery, see new cake & cookie designs and check-out our behind the scenes photos.
