Hi all. Sorry it's been so long since we have posted anything. As everyone can imagine, it has been a rough couple years for the world. Small businesses have been struggling all over, and this little cookie shop had originally planned to open at the end of 2019/beginning of 2020. Whoops ๐Ÿ˜ณ
No one could have seen that 2020 would end up being the worst possible year to pursue our little bakery dream.

We've spent 2020 anxiously waiting for things to become safer. When it became clear it was going to be a long time before that would happen, we spent 2021 trying to create plans and strategies to push ahead with opening in a different capacity that was safe and maybe different than what we had originally envisioned. There were some good possibilities for sure, but as things shifted, we found more and more roadblocks. As many saw last year and still see this now, prices started to rise and product availability was, and still is, scarce for every business imaginable. Things are unpredictable for a new business opening up even at the best of times, so with this ever shifting uncertainty around us all, is just a minefield of problems to navigate.

Unfortunately we just could not make a plan that worked for a tiny, yet to be connected to distributors, business that worked. So sadly Handheld Bakery will be closing more permanently now. Keeping a business at a flatline state and hoping for things to normalize just is not sustainable for us at this time, and honestly it is a little painful to watch a dream flounder while at the same time seeing the whole world experience such painful amounts of loss and chaos.
There have been A TON of highlights to this experience though, and we are so very happy we tried. It gave opportunities to leave toxic jobs and experience an unbridled amount of freedom. We met amazing people on this journey that we will still be so happy to be involved with even if the bakery is no longer viable for us to sustain. Even with how things turned out, we would not go back and change our decision to pursue this little dream. It has been amazing and uplifting in so many ways.

We are very sorry for the disappointment it may cause to let Handheld go and thank every single one of you for supporting us. Maybe there will be a time in the future where we can try again with this little dream, but for now, we wish everyone warm cookies with lots of love and safety ๐Ÿชโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿชโ™ฅ๏ธ

Good morning! We wanted to post an update today on the future plans for Handheld Bakery.

After looking at several factors impacting small businesses this year, we have made the difficult decision to remain closed for now and delay the full opening until another year. Conservative estimates put our reopening at late 2021 and possibly early 2022. It was not an easy choice to make, but we feel it will be in the best interest of the company overall to delay opening for now. We were so very lucky to be in a place that we could halt full opening to wait and assess the effect that COVID-19 would have for future operations.

There are many contributing factors to remaining closed for this year and next; safety of ourselves and our community, supply shortages, supply cost increases, and many more. The main factor though that really cemented our decision was looking to the other small businesses in our community and what we could do to aid them. Since the bakery was in such early stages of opening, temporarily shutting down will not result in full permanent closure. Many businesses however will not have this option, and if we can spend this year putting time and money into fellow small business, we would prefer do that and come back later to prosper side by side with those fellow business owners.

If you are able, please try to support your local community businesses. Many businesses have beefed up their online ordering capability to give customers safe options to continue to order from their favorite local shops. Many also offer curbside pick up so you can safely get your items and save these businesses costly delivery services. Whatever you can safely do for your local business community helps. If we all work together in these trying times, there will hopefully be those little local favorites you love there for you when we all return back fully to safer and normal times.

Thank you so much for all of the support we have had. It means so much to us to have wonderful people cheering on our little bakery as it has been coming together. We canโ€™t wait to get back to making cookies and small treats for our wonderful community! โค๏ธ๐Ÿชโš”๏ธ

Love chocolate chip cookies but want to cut out sugars? Here are my favorite at home sugar alternatives that give classic cookie taste with less sugar content. You can replace your sugars 1:1 in your recipe with the alternatives. They can come out a little cakey/dense though, so you can cut down the flour a little, add an extra egg, or cut the monkfruit down and incorporate some liquid sugar alternative โค๏ธ๐Ÿช

When you're home more than usual, do you like to try baking/cooking new things? While we work on slowly starting back up on bakery plans, here are some things I've made so far during quarentine. Some are simple items I never stopped to make due to time and ease of availability at the store. Others were for those cravings that required a creative solve ๐Ÿ˜ Many I will definitely make more often now. Like homemade tortillas! Fairly simple and a world of difference when made fresh. What have you been quaren-baking? โค๏ธ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ

Good morning! We wanted to post a quick update on Handheld's plan for operation with recent state re-opening guidelines being issued. While we are excited to get back to work on the bakery's rollout, we have decided for now to maintain temporary shutdown. We would like to give a little more time to see what the CDC and local health officials recommend on business operations and the effect on the spread of COVID-19. The safety of our customers and family is of the upmost importance, so we will keep monitoring for a time when everyone feels safe to start back up more fully with orders and deliveries. Stay safe everyone โค๏ธ

In response to current concerns surrounding covid-19 and for the safety of the DFW community, Handheld Bakery will be suspending all ordering temporarily. Luckily being a small home based bakery and just starting this year, HHB can hold on production without being in danger of closing down or negatively effecting ownershipโ€™s ability to continue with plans to open later in 2020. This delay in full business roll-out will be for an undetermined amount of time, depending on the guidelines of the CDC and local health authorities, but rest assured Handheld Bakery will return. Thank you so much for the love and support from our community. We canโ€™t wait to bring our handheld treats to everyone in the future!

Hi all! A quick update on progress,
There are some administrative things in the works that are taking some extra time for now, and hopefully those will soon be wrapped up so the site and menu can be created. I am aiming for a basic web site set up in mid February or earlier, with a more full roll out mid year.
The menu items are the works and will be comprised of small handheld baked goods like cookies, brownies, & many more and also some savory options like pizza pocket & empanada style treats. I can't wait to start getting feedback and style the menu for you all!
While these set ups are in process, I am taking special orders! If you have something you would like, please send an email to [email protected] with your request. I will get back to you immediately to let you know how best I can fill that order. I can supply almost any cookie, brownie, or small sweets request at this time and also have a great cast iron skillet cinnamon roll that feeds 6. I am Frisco, Tx based and deliver to most major DFW areas. There are some shipping options as well for cookies and items that ship well and keep freshness.
I am a one woman show for now, so there may be some requests I can't fill at this time; but I will do my best to make everything work for you! More updates to come and thank you for all of the magnificent love and support โค๏ธ๐Ÿช๐Ÿ˜

A few months ago I had the privilege of providing mini cupcakes and blueberry meringue drops for the wonderfully talented Color Snack Creative Studio Gallery Night at The Riveter.
