I’ve had a few questions from people about things like how to place an order. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions. If your question isn’t answered here, please let me know so that I can add it!
Where are you located? Can I just come by and pick up something?
I’m in Georgetown. As a Cottage Baker, I operate from my home, so I am not generally open to the public like a storefront. That means that any visitors are by appointment only. Everything I sell is made-to-order, so I don’t have items available that you can just come by and pick up. That being said, there are some things that are quick to make and can be ready by the next day.
How do I place an order?
There are a number of different options. You can use the contact form here on the website. You can send me a message through my Facebook page. You can email me. You can call. You can talk to me in person. My preferred methods are the written ones (e.g. email or FB message), because that way we both have a record of the conversation. If you call or talk to me in person, I will ask for your email address so that I can confirm the order in writing.
So how do I receive my items?
While you can make arrangements to come pick up your order, in most cases, I deliver. We’ll work out a place and time that is convenient for both of us. For larger or more complex orders, I’m happy to deliver your order to your home if you’d like.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) as well as cash.
Do you sell any gluten-free baked goods?
While I’m intrigued by the science involved in making quality baked goods without gluten, I don’t offer gluten-free or other allergen-free items. I regularly use wheat flours, dairy products, eggs and assorted nuts in my kitchen, so I can’t guarantee that any of my products are free of contamination from those ingredients.
