Thanks for Joining Us!

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Proofed, a newsletter for bakers. Each installment we’ll give you a collection of the things that have peaked our team’s interest.

A lot of articles cross our workbench each month, here are a few that we think are worthy of a click!


Gingerbread Castle

Whether your specialty is bread, pastries, or other confections; bakers can appreciate the level of skill it took Christine McConnel (baker and author of “Deceptive Desserts”) to create this stunning masterpiece of a gingerbread castle.


Puzzles Bakery

Learn how one upstate New York bakery is not only producing delicious treats, but also changing the lives of those with special needs by providing employment opportunities.

Here’s a quick look at what our team is reading!

The Thank You Economy

Written by Gary Vaynerchuck, “The Thank You Economy” highlights the rising customer demand for honesty, authenticity, originality, creativity and good intent and how this internet driven economy needs to be faced with a real care for customer service and a high level of appreciation and gratitude for each and every customer. This is a great read for any business owner!

Why We Recommend It

“‘The Thank You Economy’ encompasses the type of business philosophy I wholeheartedly believe in. It is about providing value up front and center before ever asking for anything in return.”
