2018 – A Year to Remember

It has been quite a wild ride here at the bakery over the last twelve months. We’ve added an entire cake decorating department, seen our Love, Cookie branded across an iconic New Orleans streetcar, introduced our Petit Fours to markets beyond the Gulf Coast, visited with the folks from the tiniest mom & pop shops to the grandest of stores a city block wide. We’ve instituted employee empowerment policies and worked with the New Orleans Mission and Covenant House to supply cakes during the holidays. We’re a proud bunch of folks looking back and even prouder looking forward at what we know we can accomplish. As 2018 comes to a close, we’d love to share some of our fondest memories over the last year.

Overall, 2018 will be a year to remember and we are feeling so fortunate to know that after over fifty years we’re still able to take huge leaps as a team and as a bakery.
Here’s to the New Year! Happy Holidays!
