Elderberry Hedge: 'The Bonny Baker' Bakery & Cafe

"'The Bonny Baker' Bakery & Cafe"
(May 28, 2012)
Watercolour, approx. 7x10"

    What can you say about Bonny? Well, for one, she's a real sweetie!  Her sunny disposition has most everyone in the village flocking to her bakery/cafe and her delectable desserts keep them coming back!

    When Bonny first moved to Elderberry Hedge she was looking for a unique location and she certainly found it when she happened upon an overturned milk crate - just the right size for what she had in mind.  The open front of the bakery allow the aroma's from her daily baking to waft through the hedge and entice many to meander down the well-worn path for a quick bite.

    Bonny discovered her love for baking when she was just a l'il mouseling.  She perfected her chocolate chip cookie recipe by the age of twelve and moved on to pastries in her teens which have won blue ribbons at the county fair every year since.  She really loves baking fancy cakes and cookies, but breads have become something of a speciality as of late.

    Throughout the year Bonnie runs Baking 'Funshops' (because baking is never work!) for villagers of all ages because she feels that everyone deserves to feel the wonderful sense of accomplishment that comes from baking something yummy from good, simple ingredients!
