Dear Friends of TassenKuchen.
I want to let you know what Yelp is apparently doing to make money. As you may or may not know Yelp bought Qype (also a questionable forum for business reviews, but unfortunately the reality of our electronic lives). When Yelp took over they began to manipulate which reviews readers could readily see. We are not the only business to notice this. In fact a friend of ours sent an email around to this effect.
Well today I just checked on our Yelp listing and guess what?!?!?! Yes, the only Yelp recommended review was the worst we have gotten!!!! WTF!?!?!? I am steaming. I am minutes away from taking our business off Yelp, but first I will wait until they call to suggest I buy a monthly premium package and then they can “fix” our overall ratings. Then I can let them know where they can stick their premium package.
So, please beware that what you see on Yelp is probably not accurate at all!!! Read all the reviews at the bottom of the business’ page to get the most comprehensive opinion.
Hooray! This Sunday marks 2 years that our doors have been opened! It is hard to believe that two years have already passed. We have enjoyed baking our American favorites and introducing them to you. And you, our dear customers and fans, have responded in part. Thank you all for your support and kind words over that past two years, that has made it all worthwhile! We look forward to creating more great treats for your eating pleasure and will continue to up the ante!!
And we just realized that as far as we can tell tomorrow is the broadcast of the Sweet and Easy Enie Backt episode in which Paul bakes (and reveals the recipe for!!) his legendary Blondies. The show is on Sixx and airs Saturday at 13:30. Turn on (your oven), Tune in and Drop out (the batter into the form). (For more info on the whole story check out our blog entry from 08.02.2013)
But wait ,there is more…in case you missed it our humble Bezirk Wedding was on the RBB show ZIBB last friday and featured TassenKuchen! You can check it out on-line.
Wow! Lots of exciting things this week and some super highlights for our 2nd year milestone. Thank you all. Hope to see you soon!
Halloween must be the most beloved (or as the kids these days would say, “most favoritest”) holiday in America. We at TK love it too! And today I carved this scary-ass pumpkin with my daughter. O.K. she didn’t do much except eat a cookie and feed me some too, but she supported my efforts and played art director.
The point is that Halloween is this Thursday and we will celebrate with all sorts of gruesome looking cupcakes, pumpkin flavored treats and freebies for the little ones if they say, “Trick or Treat”. So come on in, say hi to the orange monster and get into the “spirit”.
We call him Charles
Dieser Samstag findet der Wedding Wundertüten Tag statt. Wir sind Lokal Nummer 10 und natürlich gibt’s auch bei uns die begehrten Aufkleber. Von denen braucht Ihr fünf Stück und dann bekommt Ihr eine Special Wundertüte, welche von all den Teilnehmern individuell gefüllt worden sind.
Zudem haben wir unser Glücksrad mal wieder aus dem Keller geholt und steht bereit für Euch zum Drehen an diesem tollen Wundertüten Tag.
Ach ja und dann wird auch noch unsere neue Ausstellung der Fensterbilder von Elisa Brückner eröffnet, den Rest Ihrer schönen Arbeiten könnt Ihr in Ihrem Studio anschauen gehen und eine live Performance in Gilmore”s Café erleben.
Tomorrow, this Saturday, is the Wedding Wundertüte Event you have all been hearing about! We are participating and are location number 10. Look for our hanging number 10 sign out front. Then come in enjoy some goodies and get a star in your Wundertüte pamphlet. After you have visited 5 locations you get a Wundertüte…filled with special offers or treats. It’s that easy and crazy fun.
And we are happy to present the work of artist Elisa Brückner. Come check it out. And while you are in the café give our wheel of fortune a spin and try your luck. Hope to see you.
Hey, tomorrow is the anniversary of the reunification of Germany. This all came about because of the greatest President the USA ever had. Yes, of course I mean Ronald Reagan. The very President that declared our national condiment (Ketchup) a vegetable and therefor a valuable part of school lunches. But that is not why I bring him up. I would like to make a relevant link to tomorrow here.
Ronald Reagan said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” as he stood by the Wall. And low and behold the wall came down shortly afterward. So we can all thank the Gipper for one big happy Germany. But wait, there is more. What was Bonzo’s favorite food? No not the jelly bean, that was a cheap marketing stunt by the Jelly Bean Growers of America (JBGA) who of course contributed heavily to RR’s campaign fund. NO, his true favorite food was the Pancake. So, to make a long story no longer than it already is, here is the point. TK will be offering up our tasty Pancakes for your late breakfasting pleasure tomorrow in honor of the reunification of Germany. So come on in and get a stack. But please don’t try to order any other breakfast items… you have to wait for the weekend for that. ; )
Have a great Feiertag!
This past friday we were at Bite Club on the Spree (behind the Treptow Arena). http://www.biteclub.de. That was a ball. And we sold out of all our delicious baked goods. We came with two kinds of Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies and Blondies. And they all went! A big thank you to all who patronized our stand (or rather our bike wagon). Look for us again in two weeks at the 4th Bite Club event.
