Happy FIRST Day of SPRING!
Thank YOU dearly for understanding the lack of Weekly Baking Blogging… We had some fun with UIL Theatre and Choir events, a Rubik Cube competition THEN, of course, Spring Break with an added Dance Competition/Convention last weekend. However, If we’re being terribly honest, the last THREE weeks have been a tremendous whirlwind of information and testing for my mom. We are awaiting final diagnosis and trying very hard to honor her privacy. While we will be in and out of town (Salado, Austin area) we ARE open for business and would LOVE to see your online orders on our baking calendar,- so we can schedule those trips in and out of town accordingly. Oh yes, and while we do have THREE upcoming dance competition weekends, we are available for Friday morning baking for two of those. AND we have THREE HOLIDAY Baking Events coming up (exciting)… Easter, Teacher Appreciation Week AND Mother’s Day! More details and online order forms coming soon. For all of you with school-aged kiddos, we can’t believe these are our FINAL 9 weeks of the school year!
THIS FRIDAY we are BAKING and have FOUR Flavors of Cupcakes and THREE Drop Cookies on the menu…scroll down and read more. Happy SPRING and we sure do hope to see you soon! ❤ Melissa

FOUR Flavors of Cupcake YUM AND THREE Drop Cookies……
- Peanut Butter Plunge/PBP
- Strawberry Sensation/SS
- Triple Chocolate Temptation/TCT
- PLEASE See a Description of all the above flavors HERE! Don’t forget, mini cupcakes are sold by the DOZEN (Due to box sizes and top heavy with icing- 12, 24, 36,etc.) but can be mixed in the FOUR flavors (HOE, SS & TCT) above.. A box of 13 Minis is $19.50
THREE DROP COOKIES… *Snickerdoodle not featured in our photo, apologies!
- Outrageous Orange ($1.50 Each) Can a cookie have healthy ingredients? Why yes. Let’s try Quaker Oats oatmeal, Ocean Spray craisins, Ghirardelli white chocolate chips, fresh orange zest, orange extract, then tip it off with a bit of Ghirardelli white chocolate… decadently yummy.
- Snickerdoodles ($1 Each) Traditional Snickerdoodle Yum…Cinamon
- Ultimate Chocolate Chip ($1.50 Each) Think ‘Laura Bush Cowboy Cookie’ on this one…heaps and heaps of ingredient goodness, Van Leer’s Chocolate chips (made by Callebaut), Quaker Qats Oatmeal, Diamond Pecans, Tones Cinnamon and Coconut galore… Tipped with a smidge of Ghiradelli Chocolate. You’ll think, ‘NUTS, I need this cookie!’

‘Business hours’ | Determined by our clients…
As you know, we are NOT a STOREFRONT as we’re a concierge batch baker working out of a completely smoke free, pet free home bakery operating under the Texas Food Cottage Law aka as the home baker’s bill. We’re often asked on Facebook to publish our ‘Business Hours’… This is ALMOST impossible except for Mondays when we publish our ‘weekly baking schedule’! Basically, we work backward a bit meaning, we’re open for Saturday pickups normally between 10-Noon (we can often have your order ready by 9:30 if needed). We’re CLOSED Saturday from ‘NOON on till Monday mornings 8am’ (for faith, fellowship and family). We’re almost always on the phone verifying that week’s orders each Monday morning from 8-Noon. Other than that, we are at the ‘beck and call’ of those clients that have booked us for that week via the online order form. Whoever has booked us (at least a week in advance or at the very least by Sunday midnight, is how we determine our weekly baking hours and pick up windows. We can book your ‘baking and pick up’ ANY day of the week (except for closures), ANY time of the day (except Saturday Noon till Monday morning 8am), with your online order! DO NOT fret, however, you can always order off the existing weekly baking schedule posted on Mondays. In the end, YOU, the client, determines our weekly baking schedule, other than closures. We’re humbled to bake for you and yours and ‘Thank You’ dearly for your online orders. Thank you ever so much for allowing us to bake for you, we promise to do our very best to make your experience and celebration memorable! 20 HOURS| This was MY Dream seven years ago…to work @20 hours a week baking, what I love! Now, this of course does not include holidays, as that’s not realistic (we work 60+ then). And this also does not include my lovely baking assistant’s hours, ha! Why 20 you ask? Because honestly, I work another part-time job. These two jobs combined have me clocking in full time hours while also being the executive assistant to FOUR humans and two of these (our kiddos) DON’T DRIVE. This includes all three children’s carpools, three different school campuses, and all have extracurricular activities. Yes, I have fabulous ‘carpool mom help’, but ‘Ay, Caramba, ‘Oh My’! Sometimes, I feel as if I actually see myself driving down the streets going the other way… As well, I REALLY love serving my children’s schools and our church. Over the years, I’ve allowed those 20 hours to look more like 25, 30, 35 and 40 hours on a non-holiday prep week or holiday week. God has done something BIG in me in the loss of my beloved best friend and mentor Nancy McDaniel, who passed away January 18th after a 15 month fight against cancer. My heart (who struggles deeply with disappointing others) and my head have met head on…I WILL stay on task and ONLY BAKE a maximum of 20 hours weekly (Holidays excluded). I’m going to try to not miss those precious family moments. Did I also mention we’ve decided to dip our toes into the world of dance conventions and competitions? It’s my girl’s heart desire and I’ve finally realized it (after a few years) when I saw her literally dancing in her sleep… Life is too short and as I’ve learned recently via Nancy, aka our ‘CeCe’, that we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Now remember, I’m still working full time and I absolutely know I’ll work crazy hours during the holidays. However, once I’m booked a certain number of baking days weekly, I will close the others. My body AGE (gulp), mind and soul will no longer allow me to work into the wee hours of the morning or pull all nighters, yes, -my ‘ah ha’ moment. I’ve ALWAYS striven to be a concierge batch baker operating above and beyond the legal requirements of the Texas Food Cottage Law in a pet free, smoke free environment who values quality ingredients and crazy freshness… and I sure hope to continue! <3 NOW, more than ever, will we appreciate your ONLINE ordering in advance. It will be SUPER duper hard to stick to those 20 Baking hours, but we’ll be praying and trusting GOD to provide for both your and our needs! Please know that with notice (1-2 weeks preferably), I will do everything I can to get you on the baking schedule and look forward to baking for the BEST and kindest customers I could ever have hoped, prayed and dreamed of year’s ago! Seriously, YOU are… How do you get on the baking schedule you ask? The ONLINE order form please! Did you know there there are TEN different ways customers can communicate with me via normal email, phone, text and social media? That online order form holds me accountable like nothing else! And, it has all that you ask of me in writing, fabulous! Lastly, our current ‘limited baking’ or ‘closures’ are ALWAYS posted on our weekly baking blog and above the online order form!♥ – Melissa Stone If you have any questions, please send us an email at: Melissa@ConfectionPerfectionByMelissa.com
