You should make (insert product name here)! It will really sell!

I have a motto when it comes to the bake shop. I don’t make anything I don’t personally like.

Some of you are correct. There are things I could make that would sell very well, but either I don’t like the product, or I don’t like the technique (too time-consuming or messy), so I don’t want to mess with it.

There are some things that I could make but I won’t because somebody else is already doing it, and I don’t want to step on their toes. That might not be a great business decision in your eyes, but that’s me.

Sometimes you are wrong. That product you think would really sell, well it won’t. You see, we’ve tried it already, or we’ve seen others try it. Not going there again.

So, I make what I enjoy making, and I’m glad that you enjoy it as well. 

Here’s something I enjoy making.

Whole Grain Ciabatta with Herbes de Provence. Want some?
