You can help bakery become reality

If you’ve ever been to Redlands Market Night and tried a delicious cupcake or cake pop from our friends at the De”Bite”Ful Cake Pop Shop, you know how good their treats are.

The wife and husband team who run the bakery, Kendra and Terry Farmer, currently operate out of a commercial bakery in Chino that’s shared with several other bakers.

The treats that they create in that bakery are favors at catered events and are sold at street fairs and farmers markets across Southern California.

However, their goal is to open their own shop, where they will sell filled- and frosted-when-you-order cupcakes, cake-ups, cake pops and other delights on a daily basis.

They want to include a creative studio where they can teach cake pop classes (which they already do from the Chino commercial bakery), cupcake decorating, cookie decorating and baking classes.

Now’s your chance to help them reach that goal.

They’ve set up an account at to raise funds to open their bakery.

You can help them by pledging $1 or more to help them achieve their goal.

Hopefully, you’ll pledge more than $1.

And if you do, you’ll get treated in return.

For instance, pledge $5 and you’ll get your name on a “Kickstarter” wall in the new establishment, a handwritten Thank You note and a sticker.

Obviously, the more you pledge, the more you’ll get in return.

Pledge $50, or example, and you’ll get your name on the wall, the handwritten Thank You note, the sticker, a half-dozen sampler pack of cake pops, a large jar layered with their award-winning banana pudding cupcakes, and a dozen cupcakes.

And a partridge in a pear tree.

Just kidding about the partridge and the tree.

Those who pledge $2,000 or more will get gold member donation placard posted in the new bakery, four dozen classic round cake pops, a quarterly cake pop DVD for a year (which will include step-by-step instructions for our intermediate custom cake pops), all the supplies needed to create those custom pops, a private 3 hour cake pop party for up to 11 guests, and much, much more.

The project only gets funded if they reach their goal.

If you love cupcakes…and I know you do…you owe it to yourself to help these folks out.

If you haven’t already experienced De “Bite” Ful’s treats, you can find them Thursdays at Redlands Market Night on the north side of State Street between Orange and Fifth streets.

Stop by check out their booth, try a cake pop or two, and meet the Farmers. They’re nice folks.

But don’t wait forever…the deadline to reach their goal is June 9.
