Sunday Trading

Yes that’s right. If you are looking for a Bakery that is open  Sunday’s (or Saturday for that matter) in Ipswich, Queensland (QLD).

Our trading hours are 7am to 1.30pm both Saturday and Sunday.

The only Sunday’s we are closed are Easter Sunday and the Sundays directly after Christmas Day and up to when school resumes in the new year. or if a Public holiday happens to fall on a Sunday.

Cold Drinks and Hot Foods

Along with the variety of Baked Foods we offer, it nearly goes without saying, that we also offer a selection of Cold Drinks.

As well as Soft drinks and Energy Drinks, we also have a selection of Dairy Farmers Milk Drinks, Fruit Drinks and Juices.

If we don’t have your preferred brand or flavour, perhaps the neighboring “Friendly Grocer” will.

Perhaps you want a Pie or Sausage Roll, but someone else wants a Burger, or Fish and Chips. That’s OK, “Uncle Bill’s Takeaway” is close by as well.

Neapolitan Cake

Not to be confused with a “Napolean” or Napoleon”.

With this Sponge Cake we use a combination of “Pink, Brown, and Cream” colour’s, or another way of describing it “Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla” flavour’s.

Placed into layers with our whipped Mock Cream between.

A layer of our whipped Sugar Icing on top and normally packaged as a “Bar Cake”.

Napolean Cake

This one always causes confusion. If you do some research you will find a whole host of definitions.

Apparently this cake may not of had French origins as you may perceive. I had a quick look around on the internet myself, and found that the one we call a “French Vanilla Slice” is sometimes referred to as a  “Russian Napolean” or a “Napoleon”.

Also not to be confused with a “Neapolitan” Cake (refer to our other post) .

So what do we call a “Napolean Cake”.

We sandwich a Light Vanilla Sponge Cake between a top and bottom layer of our Puff Pastry.

To hold this together we use a coating of Raspberry/Plum Jam, and a layer of our whipped Mock Cream.

On top we Ice the cake with our whipped Sugar Icing.

This is then packaged as a bar cake.

Finger Bun

Some times referred to as a “Coffee Roll”. This is a oven baked Bun. (as opposed to a Dough Nut).

We finish these off in a few different ways.

After we spray Sugar Glaze on them, we roll some in Cinnamon Sugar.

Others, we slather on our Whipped Sugar Icing, and we leave some plain iced. Some are rolled in coconut, and some of the iced ones are cut down the centre and filled with our Whipped Mock Cream (sometimes known as a “Long john”)

Apple Slice

A Traditional Favourite, a layer of our butter style Shortbread pastry on the top and bottom with a filling of New Zealand diced and blanched Apples.

Finished off with a dusting Castor Sugar.

If you would rather it as a Pie, we have them sized for the individual, or a Family size.

Bears Claw

Sometimes this Bun may be referred to as an Elephants foot.

Call it which ever, and there is a good chance we know what you are talking about.

This Bun is made to share with a group.

Its made using our Fruit Bun Dough that has a mixture of Spices and Sultana’s (Australian 3 crown) through the dough.

We put a filling of diced and blanched New Zealand Apple in before we bake the Bun.

After baking , we coat it with our Sugar Glaze and finish it off with our Whipped Sugar Icing. Sometimes we will dust the icing with Coconut.

 

Caramel Bun Ring

Made as a large Bun to share with others (looks like a big doughnut).

This bun is made using what we refer to as our clear Bun Dough (no fruit or spices). It then has a bead of Caramel Paste placed into its centre before baking.

After baking, we coat it with our Sugar Glaze and finish it off with our Whipped Sugar Icing. Sometimes we may then sprinkle crushed Peanuts on top, or  dust the Icing with Coconut.

Chelsea Bun

Made with our Fruit Bun Dough that has a mixture of Spices and  Sultana’s (Australian 3 crown) through the dough.

The dough has a layer of Raspberry/Plum Jam applied before being rolled into a scroll.

After baking they are sprayed with Sugar Glaze and either finished off with Cinnamon Sugar or Whipped Sugar Icing.

Braided Bun Loaf

Made using our Sweet Bun Dough, baked with either a filling of Blue Berry Conserve, or Caramel Paste & Californian Walnuts.

After baking a coating of Sugar Glaze, and finished off with a drizzle of white sugar Fondant.

Just like our Iced Fruit Loaf (around the same size) it is ideal for sharing at morning or afternoon Tea with friends or family or even as a desert.

Although this particular Bun is best described as a Braid it correctly termed a “Faux Braid”. When being made it is rolled, and cut in such a way making it easy to “Pullapart”.
