Billy’s Bakery – Holiday Food Shopping

by Jamie Sanford on December 6, 2011

Last week, I had the pleasure of taking a meeting where Billy’s Bakery cupcakes were provided. Since they were super fabulous and delicious, I figured that I would check out the Billy’s Bakery website and see what else they have to offer.

If you are in NYC, you can have Billy’s Bakery delivered to you by a real person, but since I imagine that most of the readers of this blog do not live in NYC, I will stick to only the items that can be shipped.

You can get cute little gift packages in different denominations.  This is the $40 gift package. Look at the tin!

My mother makes delicious baby banana breads, and my husband makes it too. I love it. So I’m all about ordering a 6-pack of these mini banana breads to use as holiday gifts, since I don’t actually make it. The box of 6 mini Banana Nut loaves is available from Billy’s Bakery for $18.

I can TOTALLY vouch for the cupcakes, they were most and delicious and decadent, and really, that’s what cupcakes should be all about. I picked the classic cupcake sampler here, but they have chocolate, vanilla, red velvet (which I had and it was super good) – you can pick whichever cupcake combination you want.  The classic cupcake sampler dozen is available for $36.

Remember what I said about the red velvet? They have a whole cake you can get! For $45, you can feed 10-12 people this deliciousness.

Another favorite of mine (my Dad too) is peanut butter cookies, and these look really yummy.  The package of 6 cookies is available from Billy’s Bakery for $4.50.

If you need to order a sweet gift for the holidays, I would recommend checking out Billy’s Bakery. Those cupcakes were super good, so I have high hopes for everything else on their menu.

I’m devastated that Facebook purchased Drop.io and so I’m happy that Lifehacker has a great article on what to use to store your files now.

That’s all for now, I’m already late with this so I’ll keep it short.

Helpful and Chic Kitchen Conversions Print

by Jamie Sanford on November 1, 2010

Today’s item is a good combination of chic and helpful.  A kitchen conversions print that would be very cute in a frame on the wall but also a quick reference for cooking and baking.


Chic, right?  I told you!

This is the 8.5 x 11 version, but other sizes are available.  The price might seem high at $24, but it is printed on high-quality paper.

Printed on Epson Fine Art Velvet Paper with archival inks and packaged in a protective cellophane sleeve inside a rigid mailer. Fine Art Velvet Paper is an archival, acid free, 100% cotton rag with a matte coating.

The kitchen conversions print from Etsy seller SweetFineDay is available for $24.

Cakewich Pan

by Jamie Sanford on May 31, 2010

We all know someone who loves to bake, who actually enjoys it and does it as a hobby.

Let me reiterate that I’m not suggesting you buy this for someone who doesn’t enjoy this – I don’t think my mom was too excited about getting a juicer for Christmas that one year.

So this is the Cakewich baking pan, so that you can convert a regular cake batter into a bread-shaped cake and make sandwiches! I’m thinking about a fluffernutter with added Nutella.

The Cakewich pan is available from Amazon for 23.97.
