Double Barreled Bakery Offers Tasty Treats Here
With down-home treats like “whoppin” pies, redneck s’mores, cove crunchers and combine cookies,” Lindsey Waters and Susanne Reed are certainly making a name for themselves in Fulton County and the surrounding area as creators of “fancy baked goods at shotgun prices.”
Reed, a local author and selfproclaimed “foodie,” recently joined forces with close friend and avid baker Waters, to start whipping up a menu of treats under the name of Double Barreled Bakery.
Operating out of their own kitchens, Double Barreled Bakery’s owners currently offer two options for ordering – online and over the telephone. The duo also handles personal deliveries as well as shipping for customers outside of the Fulton County and neighboring areas of Huntingdon and Franklin counties.
The premise of Double Barreled Bakery sprouted on the heels of a Pampered Chef party hosted by Reed and Waters. Reed, 39, stated she has never been known throughout her circle of friends and family as being a good cook, but those attending her Pampered Chef party were taken back by her delightful array of chocolate-dipped delights.
The two friends launched into discussions on how to turn their sinful creations into a side business. By enlisting help with designing their shotgun toting cowgirl logo and using Water’s more creative side in naming and pricing treats, the women have turned their bakery into a success.
Reed reports in addition to taking orders over the Internet and the telephone, they sell their creations at several locations including Keystone Country Store in Fort Loudon, Rita’s Antiques in Huntingdon, the Shade Gap Mill and at a Mount Union-based floral shop.
Double Barreled Bakery is also available for catering; gift baskets ranging from $15 to $100; and even office baskets. Reed noted the office basket option is growing in popularity and includes refills as needed.
In hopes of better marketing their business and products, Reed and Waters, 21, will be at the Strawberry Festival in Mc- Connellsburg on June 11 and 12, where they will have an array of baked and dipped goods on hand for purchase.
Orders can currently be placed online by visiting Double Barreled Bakery at www.doublebarreledbakery.webs. com or by calling Reed at 717-485- 0734 or Waters at 814-259-3570.
