Our biggest brownie gift basket is no match for Alabama’s behemoth

Extravagant Delights brownie gift basketDo you have a big brownie appetite? You might order gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies in a sizeable Extravagant Delights brownie gift basket.

Or, you might go really big like the folks in Daphne, Ala. Something Sweet Bake Shop just put Daphne on the map – and into the Guinness Book of World Records.

According to a report in Alabama’s Gulf Coast News, Something Sweet recently baked the world’s largest brownie. At its official weigh-in, the bake shop’s brownie tipped the scales at over 234 pounds. The previous record was 220 pounds, 7 ounces.

Not too shabby!

The effort to bake the world’s largest brownie supported a good cause. Slices of the brownie sold for $3 each with proceeds going to the Bay Area Food Bank’s backpack program, which provides take-home food to students on weekends when school cafeterias are closed.

The brownie produced nearly 1,200 slices. That’s over $3,000 for charity. Way to go, Something Sweet!

We’ll admit that we can’t come close to delivering 234 pounds...

Gourmet brownies are perfect for the royal baby in your family

Boy, gourmet brownies Everyone loves a fairytale. And when the story includes a baby, well, we women love it even more!

A new little prince was born to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William yesterday and the world rejoiced. Most of us only know the couple from a distance via the media, but that didn't stop us from sharing their baby news with everyone yesterday: It's a Boy!

Now we wait to catch a glimpse of his beautiful face, hear his name and watch him live happily ever after.

At Fairytale Brownies, two mamas, two grandmas, and a great aunt (me!) are still waiting for our own "royal" babies to be born. With each birth announcement, we are so filled with joy for the family. The births may not make the world news, but each one is royal news in our world.

Of course we'll celebrate the births with gourmet brownies, gift baskets of cookies and food gifts galore. With so many varieties of Fairytale treats, even the most disinterested relative will enjoy visiting the new addition to the family.

Fairytale Brownies to introduce two new bar flavors in fall food gift options

We have given you a few glimpses of Fairytale Brownies' two new blondie bars to be introduced in September, but I have to tell you - I've had more than a few glimpses and more than a FEW sample TASTES. The Lemon Blondie and Cinnamon Crumb are mouthwateringly tasty.

How should we describe them?

The Lemon Blondie: A combination of cake, cookie and brownie in texture, we combine a touch of tart and a bit of sweet in the batter. Then we top it with lemony icing for pure melt-in-your-mouth enjoyment. So refreshing, you will want to lick your fingers when you're done.

The Cinnamon Crumb: This bar reminds me of apple pie without the apples. Fragrant, spicy cinnamon crumbs mix with crunchy walnuts to create  the sweet and memorable taste of home. This bar conjures so many happy childhood memories for me that it could be my new "comfort" food. It's perfect for breakfast, snacks and dessert... Okay, it will work for lunch and dinner, too.

The new bar flavors will be available in September...

Thank friends, family, teachers, and mentors with gourmet brownies!

It is graduation time and many people are sending delicious gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies to congratulate all the grads out there. I am graduating in a week myself, with a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design! In the midst of all the celebrating I think it is important to remember those who have supported and helped me reach my academic and career goals. 

What better way to say thank you to my friends, family, teachers, and mentors than with a thank you gift from Fairytale Brownies! I know they are going to really appreciate the gesture. Not only is the presentation elegant with beautifully crafted packaging, but wait until they try the fudgy brownies, cookies, and bars! You can choose from a number of different sizes and varieties. I suggest the Thank You 8 sprite favor, especially for teachers, or the Thank You Morsel 24 for those extra special people, like parents! 

So graduates, while you're celebrating, don't forget those who have helped you along the way! Thank you...
