My opinion about working at a bakery vacillates every day. Each morning, I dread the car ride there, anticipating another hot and tiring day standing in the kitchen. But by the end of the day, I feel free and refreshed at the prospect of not having to return until the next day. Okay, so it sounds like I don’t enjoy working at the bakery, but every time I take something home, I change my mind.
Since my co-op began six weeks ago, I’ve brought home a LemonPoppyseed Loaf, some Rugalach, a Pumpkin Loaf, a Marble (Vanilla and Chocolate) Loaf, Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry and Caramel Buttercream, Peanut ButterCookies, Blondies, a Chocolate Loaf, a strawberry rhubarb pie, a blueberry divine, and now: Marshamallow Brownies.
On the hottest of days, I am jealous of my fellow summer co-op friends who get to sit in an air-conditioned office.They get free hand lotion (they work in a dermatologist's office) and I get free treats; I think we all know who has the better end of that stick.
