What is a Cottage Food program?
It is a licensed and permitted operation through the Washington State Department of Agriculture which allows preparation and sale of products from a home kitchen and residence that has not been subject to a standard inspection criteria. Rather, there is a strict application process unique to the national cottage food industry. You can learn more by visiting Cottage Food | Washington State Department of Agriculture.
My WSDA permit # is 1038 and renewed annually.
What are your hours of operation?
Messages and e-mails are checked daily. I am prompt with replies and can discuss an order within a day. My baking days and times are contingent upon my work schedule, events (Pop-Ups, fundraisers, Sweet Treat Saturdays) and other custom orders.
What opportunities are there to try your baked goods?
Follow Facebook and Instagram posts about Pop-Ups, "Sweet Treat Saturday" sampler box opportunities and giveaways such as Rabbit-Rabbit, the Cookie Drawing, and other themed baking events. You can also click the Pop-Up tab for dates and locations.
I received a gift certificate or Pop-Up Bucks. How do I redeem them?
Gift certificates/vouchers will have terms and conditions listed, including an expiration date. When you are ready to redeem, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine my baking availability. Pop-Up Bucks have no expiration date and can be applied towards any purchase during a Pop-Up or other special event. Be sure to bring it with you!
How do I place an order?
Use the CONTACT tab to inquire about my baking availability and if I can accommodate your order. If my baking slots are full for your desired item, we can find an alternate date or I can refer you to other local bakers.
How do I pay for my order?
Payment instructions will be on your invoice. Zelle, Venmo, PayPal, and cash are all accepted forms of payment.
Where do I pick up my order?
Porch pick-up in Brier during designated hours on Monday-Saturday. Free delivery is provided on Sunday ONLY for any Brier address. Other Sunday pick-up/delivery options are available and a nominal fee may apply.
What is Rabbit-Rabbit?
Uttering these two words before any others on the first day of the month is a quirky little tradition that some follow with hopes of good luck. Superstitious or not, it’s just a fun folklore activity (and a chance at some free cookies!). Visit Moon Rabbit Pastry's Facebook page on the FIRST of every month for a chance to win a dozen cookies!
Do you bake other products which are not listed on this website?
Yes, the website is just a peek at my regular and consistent products. I create a wide variety of cakes, cookies and pastries. Contact me to discuss exactly what you are looking for and we can create something together! If I am unable to make something for you, I will refer you to other like-minded bakers and pastry chefs.
Do you bake gluten-free items?
Not at this time since all baked goods are created in a home kitchen where most equipment has contacted gluten and/or other allergens such as tree nuts, eggs, dairy and soy at some point in time. I am unable to guarantee that cross- contact will not occur or items are free from traces of gluten and/or other allergens.
