Display Cabinet Construction

The path to freshly baked, home style cookies gets shorter every day!  I visited the cabinet maker this week and progress on the display cabinets (as well as retail shelving and coffee bar) is well under way.  We're going for a "warm residential" feel to the bakery so all the cabinets look more like furniture than commercial display pieces.

The cabinets are made of maple veneers.  Once finished, this one will feature decorative pieces (cookie jars!) and packaged cookies.  We may also put some shadow boxes on this unit with wedding cookie favors.

The main cabinets will display our daily baked cookies like Rugelach, Chocolate Chip, Palmiers, Macarons and Biscotti. The pieces of wood in this photo will be assembled to look like 4" post legs.

And that's all for now!  We have moved to the new bakery (5330 Weslayan) and have been making our wholesale and web cookie orders from the new location.  Check back for more updates!
