Congratulations to our Baker/Owner/Cake Artist Yeni Monroy! This morning, Yeni became an American Citizen (and immediately registered to vote). =)

This has been a very lengthy, time consuming, and costly process for us. We’re bakers– so we’re not going to get political. We’re just simply very happy that the process has completed and Yeni is both happy and honored to be an American.

After the ceremony, everyone celebrated at the bakery. Fred had an idea to make an American Flag cookie… after all, what’s more American than cookies???

We dyed our Bearkery® Signature Cookies red for the red stripes, dyed a chocolate chip cookie batch blue for the stars, and made a white chocolate chip batch for the white stripes.

Pastry Chef Lindsay had a great idea to bake the cookie and keep it in a good flag shape.

The final result… an American Flag cookie featuring a combination of chocolate chip and Bearkery Signature Cookie!

Congratulations to our newest American Citizen… Yeni Monroy!
