  • "I'm only brave when I have to be, Simba. Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble." ~ Mufasa, the Lion King

Capturing the Deliciousness of Gourmet Brownies Through Photography

Most of Fairytale Brownies business is done through mail order. Many people order brownies, cookies and bars online at brownies.com or through a catalog before they even taste them. So it's really important that we have excellent photos of our gourmet desserts. Since you can’t taste the treats, we need to convey just how yummy they are through visuals!

Twice a year, my team and I spend one to two weeks with a professional photographer and food stylists to create the most delicious looking photography that we can. When your brownie delivery arrives, you can tell just by looking at them how great they are going to be, but capturing that in an image takes a lot of time and work. However, it is also a lot of fun!

Our gourmet brownies, cookies and bars really are the stars of the shoot. We spend time making sure each treat looks its best! Of course with all those gourmet brownies around, it is impossible not to treat ourselves to some sweets. After making them look so irresistible how can I not...

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...

Spreading joy with mail order brownies

Here is a true Fairytale from our customer, Rosa, in Kentucky:

Once Upon a Time...

I ordered three dozen brownies last week, all going in a different direction. One dozen for myself, one dozen for our daughter Michelle and one dozen for our adopted daughter Carly. Our post office had been closed for one hour last Saturday when I realized my brownies were inside the post office. I squatted down, looked inside my post office box, heard a voice in the back and bribed the postman with the promise of a brownie if he would let me have my package, which he did. Today, Carly send me a video of our granddaughter Callan (14 months old) crying for one more bite of a Fairytale Brownie! She gave her a bite, threw the wrapper in the trash and the baby stood by the trash can crying.

Fairytale Brownies Dozen

Then I emailed Rosa, "May I share this story of spreading joy to your family through brownie deliveries, brownie bribes, little ones wanting more?" and "How did you first hear about us?"

She said...

Eileen, Yes you may share...

Brownies Delivered - Worldwide!

We love to hear our customers' feedback after they've eaten or shared a Fairytale fudge brownie, chewy cookie or buttery bar. This message came from Megan S.:

brownies delivered"My mom sent a big box of brownies for me to share with my office at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We work such long hours that we really need a boost from time to time, and getting mail is the most exciting part of our day (good excitment- there is plenty of bad excitment). We were all SO happy to get these brownies! People can't stop talking about how wonderful they are, and its been very distracting... one of our paralegals threatened to fall asleep at his desk since he ate three in a row and was full and happy and wanted a nap. Thanks for the great brownies, and thanks for making the extra effort to ship them all the way to Afghanistan."

Soon after I asked her if we could print her comment, she replied with another one:

"People keep coming to my desk today to ask me if I have more. (I only have a few left out of my big box, so I...

Send Brownies to help "burn the midnight oil"

The summer months are huge for me as that's when I am tasked with planning and completing improvements to the brownies.com website. Starting in September, website traffic significantly increases because that's when our new Fall/Holiday catalogs drop in-home (if you're not on our mailing list, join here), and our new gift packaging and brownie/bar/cookie flavors become available. The new things happening this year are: New Fairytale Bar flavors: Lemon Blondie and Cinnamon Crumb, New Sparkling Towers, New Fairytale Towers, New Wish Box, New Celebrate The Season Band, and New Happy New Year Band. Click here for more info on our new products.

Aside of the new gifts becoming available, the marketing department brainstorms what kind of improvements we'd like to have for the website, and I have the summer months to manage those programming projects. Depending on the size of the project, I have several people that I work hand-in-hand with to get large functionality changes complete. I work...

It is a good thing we brought some with us, because it is hard looking at so many pages of delicious treats and not wanting to eat some!
