Where can I buy your scones?
Scones are only available for purchase at various markets/craft fairs & pop-up shop events. Please take a look at my events page for upcoming dates and times. They are available on a first come, first serve basis only – no pre-orders can be made at markets. I do have pre-order events once in a while, which will be listed on my events page when I am able to do them. I do not have a store front. If you’d like scones for a large event please feel free to contact me to discuss options I have available.
How long are scones good for?
Scones are, of course, always best eaten on the day they were baked. But, if they are stored correctly they can taste delicious for up to 48 hours due to the high quality of my fresh ingredients. They are best kept at room temperature in airtight tupperware or a freezer bag, lined with paper towel. The paper towel helps to absorb moisture so that the scones don’t get soggy. One exception to the room temperature rule is scones topped with a dairy glaze (Cream cheese, Devonshire cream, etc.) – they should always be kept in the refrigerator.
Can I freeze my scones?
Yes! Scones freeze very well for up to three months. Store them in airtight tupperware or freezer bags. If you are layering the scones in tupperware, separate with parchment paper between each layer so that they they don’t get stuck together.
What is the best way to reheat my scones?
The best way to reheat scones is in the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 5-7 minutes. A toaster oven set to the toast function also works great. Another option for scones with no glaze is the toaster – slice them in half and put them in the toaster for a quick reheat. Leaving the scones out for approximately 30-60 minutes at room temperature is also a nice way to enjoy them… it makes them a perfect item for packed lunches, picnics etc. As for as microwaving scones – it is not the best way to reheat because this can lead to soggy scones if you put them in for too long. If you do choose to microwave your scones, 30-40 seconds is usually the max they should go in for. They will lose their tender crisp exterior but will still be delicious and moist on the inside if not overdone.
How do I bake your Frozen Ready To Bake Scones?
Scones: pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; use the convection
feature if you have it. Scones must be baked from frozen, do not thaw. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Remove scones from packaging and place them 2-3 inches apart on prepared tray. Bake for 10 mins at 400 F and then drop the temperature to 350 F for another 10-15 minutes. Scones are done once they are nicely browned and spring back to the touch. Remove from oven and slide a cooling rack under the scones.
Glaze: fill a cup or bowl with the hottest water from your tap. Submerge glaze packet for 5-7 mins. Repeat if needed. Snip off a corner of the packet and drizzle onto warm or cooled scones.
I hope you enjoy your freshly baked scones and I thank you for your support!
Do you deliver?
No, scones are only available at markets or other events listed on my events page.
Do you bake any specialty items other than scones?
No, at this time gourmet scones are my only item. My goal was to create a recipe, perfect it and specialize in one item with a variety of flavours. This way I am able to focus and continually provide the highest quality product. I can give you the contact details of other specialty item providers whom I highly recommend.
What payment methods are accepted?
Cash and e-transfer are preferred but I am also able to accept all major credit cards, debit tap and most debit chip cards, in person through my secure Square reader.
Can you guarantee that your GF/Vegan scones have not been cross contaminated?
Although I sanitize and clean all of my equipment throughly when baking gluten-free or vegan scones, I am not a certified Gluten-free or vegan kitchen and I cannot provide a 100% guarantee that cross contamination has not occurred. I do have many loyal/regular vegan and celiac clients though, who are able to eat my scones with no adverse reactions thus far.
What if I forget to pick up my scones?
We get that life happens and it’s easy to forget to pick up your order. We will do our best to keep track of who has and has not picked up their orders, but when it comes down to it, it’s A LOT to keep track of and it’s easy for names and orders to slip through the cracks with so many pickup point locations and orders to sift through.
Our policy is that, if you forget and do not pickup your order, it is up to you to reach out and try to make alternative arrangements to pick it up. If you do not do so within a timely manner, any scones/orders left past two days of the original pickup times will be donated to Police/Fire/Ambulance or hospital workers. You forfeit monies paid and we are not able to offer a refund on purchases. We bake up an order specifically for you, so if you don’t pick-up, and the scones are donated, we would be out the costs of ingredients and labour. So mark your calendars and set your reminders when you place your order! If you need to cancel ahead of time, this can be done with no problem and no penalties, up to 24 hours before your original pickup time.
