It’s a Cookie Making Factory Up In Hurr
In case you weren’t aware, c&m sells a small but very thoughtful selection of baked goodies at an amazing used bookstore in Downtown LA called The Last Bookstore. Cat pulled some strings (she’s very well connected, you know) and we were able to hawk our muffs and stuff through a mutual friend from CalFarts who actually built the coffee shop that lives in a sunny back corner of the Bookstore. We deliver there once a week-ish and until recently Cat was mostly in charge of the baking, packaging, and general masterminding of the little packs of c&m bakery cookies and things. Since she’s been in Taiwan, I’ve been taking over and there are a few things you should know:
1. I made a shit ton of cookies this week, several batches of which were ruined for various reasons (dropping sheet pans, not setting my timer, falling asleep, melting plastic in the microwave, etc.). Mostly things got ruined because I vastly underestimated how much time would need to go into this mixing, chilling, rolling, baking, cooling, glazing, cooling, packaging process. I’m no stranger to baking off a dozen or so cookies on a whim but we’re talking wholesale-status cookie baking. Multiply your home baking dozen by 20. Now we’re talking.
2. I will be more instrumental in aiding in the baking/delivery process because two cute heads are better than one.
3. Please go buy/eat the cookies and give us some feedback (and praise) so we can keep baking for the Bookstore and possibly expand the offerings.
4. This post was accidentally published before it was completed (or thought through: it was more of a journal entry). Please disregard and/or forget any typos or generally stupid sentences.
lots of love,
Mara and thusly, Cat.
Catherine is home.
thank you, jesus.
