The Whisk Declaration of Independent Baked Goods
We hold these truths to be self-evident ... that all baked goods are NOT created equal. Yet, we are endowed with certain unalienable rights. Among these are local ingredients, seasonality and the pursuit of deliciousness. To prove this, let these facts be submitted to a candid world.
WE BELIEVE IN:
Hand-mixed classic brownies — KUVA coffee — supporting out friends and family and their creative pursuits — fresh ingredients — graciousness to every customer — Mila, Sweets — laughing at work — the Tower Grove Farmers' Market — an ice pop enjoyed on the sidewalk on a hot summer day — Millie the Mixer — the smell of cookies in the oven — homemade crystallized ginger — the pursuit of creativity at any cost — Double Star Farms — fresh picked blueberries — riding bikes to work — Farm Fresh Dairy — a shared piece of pie on a first date — bacon chocolate chip sea salt cookies — late-night dance parties in the kitchen — our incredible support system — Todd Geisert and his piggies — the changing of the seasons — deliciousness — smiles — watermelons (with the seeds!) — baking seasonally — trying new things — rolling hundreds of cake balls — the ReTrailer hand-blended teas — supporting the other businesses on Cherokee Street — enjoying our fair city of Saint Louis — strawberries from nearby farms — shop deliveries of gluten- free flour from 40 miles away — hand-mixed French macarons — inspiration boards — paying tribute to those that inspired us — board games — fresh-ground spices — a pie to enjoy with family — tea parties — and that a cupcake and hot cocoa is indeed a balanced breakfast.
We, therefore, the representatives of Whisk: a Sustainable Bakeshop, do solemnly publish and declare, that these are our beliefs and this is our promise. And for the support of this declaration, we mutually pledge to each other (and you) our talent, our creativity, and our splendid baked goods.
