Brownie grooms-cake and precious memories!

Last week I shared a great comment sent to us from an excited customer who's daughter used Fairytale Brownies as custom wedding favors. The favors were a smashing success! This week we received another, very touching, comment about more wedding brownies. It's stories like the one's below that make doing what we do worth every minute. Spreading joy and making memories . . . that's what it's all about! 

"Just wanted to send in this quick RAVE! My daughter ordered brownies to use as the basis for her husbands grooms-cake last week at her wedding. I remembered how amazing your brownies were from a few years back when my closest friend received some for a gift. They were so good that she and I hid them in the freezer in her garage so we wouldn't have to share them with anyone else. When we sat down to watch an old movie, we would take two out of the freezer. My friend has since passed on, but for many reasons she was with us at the wedding including watching us eat those wonderful brownies....

Fairytale Brownies Wedding Gift Favors are a Hit!

So as I've mentioned before, sometimes I'll post customer comments that have been sent to us via our website contact-us form. This really cute comment came in last night and it was too enjoyable not to share! Below is a comment sent to us regarding our brownie gift favors being a hit at her daughters wedding:

"My daughter was trying to decide on favors for her wedding that weren't going to be left behind or stuffed in drawers when people got home. Their theme was kind of fantasy (think Tolkein) and obviously Fairytale Brownies were a great tie-in. Everyone got a dark purple take out food box with a cookie, sprite or bar and two magic morsels, which was a perfect fit! The wedding was Saturday. Then it got a little weird! I came to a table and found seven grown-ups playing "I'll trade you a..." which then extended to the table next to them. At another table, by the time we were coming in for introductions, the boxes were empty with just the wrappers to show for them. . . before dinner! No...

3 Things Your Boss Wants to Know about Gourmet Brownies

gourmet brownies, brownie giftWhen you give your boss Fairytale Brownies for Boss's Day on Thursday, he or she might want to know why you chose gourmet brownies as a gift:

1. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut brand Belgian dark chocolate, the finest chocolate makers for more than 100 years. Fairytale is a fine brownie baker for 22 years! Bosses love success stories, especially when they're delicious.

2. The definition of "gourmet" as an adjective: involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation. Bosses appreciate high-quality work from their employees, so they more than likely will love high-quality (or gourmet) brownies.

3. Your boss took a chance and hired YOU out of all of the candidates applying for your position. You were the "gourmet" of the group. Recognizing the boss's good taste in hiring practices by giving gourmet brownies is just the right thing to do. Send a brownie gift for Boss's Day.

New Halloween Pumpkin Spice Fudge Brownies!

As a graphic designer, it is important to remember that the designs you are creating serve a function, and although we are creatives, we must design for the brand or audience and not ourselves. We have to put personal styles and preferences aside and consider who and what we are designing for.  Luckily for me, the company I work for, Fairytale Brownies, has a wonderful and whimsical brand, that I love designing for.

I share this because I recently designed a new label for Halloween that I really enjoyed, and I am very happy with the end result. This Halloween, we have new Halloween themed labels for our new Pumpkin Spice Brownies!

These fudge brownies are my new favorite! Sweet pumpkin puree blends with cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger to create a fanciful seasonal brownie. These individually wrapped brownies come with an enchanting jack-o-lantern design on the label, perfecting for spreading the spirit of Halloween. Hand them out the co-workers, friends, family, and...

10 amazing facts about brownies!

Sometimes at work with most of my focus on design, development and marketing, I sometimes forget that it's supposed to be a fun and lighthearted thing I'm doing. I mean we are talking about baking brownies, right? That's why I wanted to write about something fun today - so I decided to research fun facts about brownies. I was surprised at some of the facts I found, especially how the brownie was created. Who knew?! Hope you enjoy :)

  1. brownies There are three myths about the creation of brownies. #1, a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. #2, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And #3 and most popular, a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to service these "flattened" cakes to them. 
  2. The classic brownie consists of only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs and flour. Unsweetened chocolate is normally used so more sugar is required to balance the bitterness.
  3. Fudgy brownies have minimum...

Would you pick the biggest brownie or the best brownie?

best brownies in bulkMontreal’s McGill University recently celebrated the start of the fall semester in a BIG way. The public research university welcomed its 37,000 students back to campus by baking the world’s largest fair trade chocolate brownie.

When all was said and done, McGill’s brownie weighed 4,419 pounds!

How does one bake such a large brownie? According to McGill’s faculty newspaper, the chocolate brownie “was cooked in batches in the kitchens of student residences [and] was assembled in a tent on the field over a three-and-a-half hour period.”

Going big is something of a tradition at McGill. In 2013, the school broke the Guinness World Record by making an 11,197-pound fruit salad. Last year, the school invited thousands of people to enjoy a free meal with five tomato-themed courses. Gazpacho. Pizza. You get it.

At Fairytale Brownies, we may not have the biggest brownie. But we believe we have the best brownies!

Our rich fudgy chocolate brownies come in a luxurious assortment of mouthwatering flavors...

Thank you gifts for new baby

 

For those of you who follow my blogs, you may have noticed that I haven't written in a while. That's because I just returned from a 3-month maternity leave, and am in the midst of sorting through 5,000+ emails and reacquainting myself with tons of loose ends. And yes, I did say maternity leave! I just welcomed a beautiful baby girl to my family in July. Her name is MacKenzie, and she is the absolute light of my life (along with my son, Austin!).

I had sort of a bumpy pregnancy because of my "advanced maternal age" (I loved it when the doctors said that... NOT); since when is 40 advanced?! Additionally, I had an early delivery due to the pregnancy complications, but the result could not have been sweeter. I was extremely lucky to have the support of many family and friends during the entire pregnancy and post partum. It's absolutely true what they say about learning who your true friends are during trials and tribulations.

Thank You brownie giftTo my great surprise, I had many people who in the past I...
