    It is that time of year again. I have recycled the thread from last year, so there is no question about the history.

    My family owns Granny C's Bakery in Huber Heights, Ohio. A local website is doing a competition for Dayton's Best Bakery. I would appreciate anyone who would please vote for us. Unlike the bakeries in these super markets that put out factory made prepacked items or factory made frozen things that they warm up and put out, we make it from scratch. We are a full service bakery that makes everything from breads, buns, cakes, and doughnuts to all kinds of sweat treats like fudge, pies, cheese cakes, and cannolis. We even do specialty items upon request like gluten free cakes. Please come vote for us and if you are in the area, stop in and pick something up, you will not be disappointed.
    http://daytondailynews.upickem.net/e...ontestid=78667

    Now to be fair, there is another Facepunch member that has a bakery in the competition. Please vote for one of us. Thanks.


    To check out more about the great things going on at Granny C's, check out our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Granny...y/239859447819

    Who cares. If they're as good as they claim to be, they shouldn't have a hard time gathering votes without us.

    Pretty sure that was a real facepuncher though, and he won without any problems.

    Hey tina, long time no see.
    I'm making cup cakes, I made a cake too a long time ago.
    I don't wait a year to post stuff to face punch. Hell, I love the community because they support each other. What about you? Have you supported this community?

    They do not say it is prohibited. The only requirement they list is that there is only one vote per IP.

    Tell me how I can convince you that my bakery is a better candidate.

    Hand rolled, authentic croissants.
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boosal...54028874653647

    I run on this platform:
    All baked goods are from scratch. Nothing touches a mixer. We go out of our way to get real organic ingredients.
    What doesn't sell, goes to the House of Bread. http://www.houseofbread.org/

    I'll make a thread later, when the cup cakes cool down and the icing is finished being made.

    Good luck Tina, may the best bakery win.

    That is AWESOME!!! We donate to the VFW and several local churches. It is ridiculous the way some of these area business try to pass off day old stuff as fresh product.

    blacksam is a gold member and everything, and he's been here for years.

    Why are we just randomly voting for someone who joined in 2011 and has 5 posts?
    Don't get me wrong, the cake is lovely, but this is someone that's been a far more active part of the community.

    Wait a second, are you only advertising here because you know that Boosalis did the same thing last year? If not, then I guess we can look forward to a bakeoff to see who deserves the vote.

    I'm sorry, I love the cake, I think it's great, but I'd much rather vote for blacksam since he's been here much longer than you have, he didn't join just for votes, and I know who he is. Good luck to the both of you.

    Centerville Farmer's Market is thursday, come and stop by, that's when we draw a crowd.
    In all honesty, if you really want to get a feel for my place, come and stop by the actual bakery.

    PM me if you want more details.

    It's really sweet. We sample a ton of stuff at the market. Check it out. It's in a parking lot. It's by wings and rings.
    Here's an address if you'd like:
    894 S Main St # C Centerville, OH 45458
    We sell out really fast too. So come at 2 or 3. Both of those times are rushed by people.
