Our New Store – Beverly’s Best, Yorba Linda!

It’s been a whirlwind since my last post. Hard to believe that was five days before we opened the Beverly’s Best Bakery Yorba Linda shop. Now here we are, just shy of two months in, and opening day seems like so long ago already.

We’ve loved sharing our new bakery with everyone. For those that haven’t had a chance to visit us yet, here’s a tour of our new location. These gorgeous photos were captured by the talented Jen Disney on that amazing first day.

I knew once we opened the doors the bakery would no longer be mine alone, so the goal was to create a space that was welcoming and “sweet” for all to enjoy.

If you know me (or have spent any time in our bakeries or reading this blog), you know that I’m crazy about details.  I just love all the unique elements that came together to make this place so special – from the antique furniture pieces, to the phrases on the walls, to the beautiful heart chandeliers.

I didn’t want to neglect our back hallway, so I installed a fun Instagram collage (#beverlysbest) and gave the doors to the kitchen and restrooms a creative twist on signage.

We waited until exactly 7:30am that day to reveal the space. Let’s just say it was a dream come true to see people waiting outside as we opened. I cried, of course!

First Customers - Beverly's Best Bakery Yorba Linda It’s always great to have lots of customers in the bakery, but there was something more than wonderful about having a full house that day.

Let’s talk about my staff. There’s no way we could run one bakery, let alone two, without our fantastic team of employees.

And, none of this would have ever been possible without my mom. She is the one that laid the foundation of success for Beverly’s Best. I’m forever grateful that she introduced me to the world of baking all those years ago, and I’m so blessed to have her inspiring me (and working for me) even still!!!

So, there she is in all her beauty – Beverly #2.  We hope to see you soon!

Setting Up Shop – Beverly’s Best Bakery Yorba Linda

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update. To say it’s been busy and crazy around here would be an understatement. Running an existing location and building a new location is no easy task.  But, things are coming together, and Beverly’s Best Bakery Yorba Linda will be opening its doors next week on Wednesday, July 30th!!!

I don’t want to give away everything that’s happening behind the papered windows, so here’s just a little peek…

There have been many days (and very late nights) setting up the shop.

We’ve even enlisted the help of our friends and family. Our friend Steve cracks me up in this photo.

One of my favorite pieces of new equipment. Sure the big mixers, the walk in fridge and the huge oven are awesome, but there’s no comparison to a PINK Kitchen Aid!

And, just to make sure that we’re ready with delicious cakes and tasty treats, we’re testing all of our recipes in advance. It’s been great to see (and smell) actual baking in the new kitchen.

Time to Staff Up – Jobs at Beverly’s Best Bakery

Building a Bakery – Beverly’s Best, Yorba Linda

Let me start off by saying how much we appreciate all the support, well wishes and interest that’s been coming our way since we announced last month that we’re building a new Beverly’s Best Bakery location in Yorba Linda. It seems everyone is curious as to how things are moving along, and since we’ve had quite a bit of progress, I figured it’s a good time to share what’s happening inside our new space.

Here’s a look at some of the behind-the-scenes stages of building a bakery…

There’s Christmas Goodies Everywhere! – Christmas Treats, part 3

Well, it’s coming – the big day is almost here! The anticipation level at our house is high as all the kids are ready to enjoy two weeks off of school, exchange gifts and play with new toys. There’s an excitement at the bakery as well as we put the finishing touches on the last round of Christmas goodies.

Who doesn’t love a small bite of cake, especially when decorated like this?
Our petit four selections are either chocolate cake filled with ganache or white cake filled with raspberry preserves.

Gingerbread House Lane – Christmas Treats, part 2

Gingerbread Houses have long been a tradition associated with the Christmas holiday. The first gingerbread houses were crafted in Germany in the early 1800s (with the making of gingerbread in Europe dating back all the way to the 11th century).

Fast forward to present time, and we’re still enjoying the fun, the creativity and the taste of the classic gingerbread house. Only today, we don’t just make traditional houses at the bakery. We infuse bright colors and whimsical embellishments and even make fast food restaurants. Take a look…

Let it Snow – Christmas Treats, part 1

One of the tell-tale signs that the holidays are coming is that snow has started to fall. Around here, we know it’s December because things are getting busy at the bakery, and we’re creating lots of Christmas treats to share with all of you.

So, since we don’t have real snow in SoCal, I’m bringing it to you the next best way…
