I’m not sure what is happening in the kitchen over at Maui Sweet Cakes, but every time I turn around, Heidi Cramer is baking up some new, and delicious, creations! Heidi just sent me a note to let me know that she’s expanding her line of shortbread cookies to now include Maui Sprinkle Cookies and Swirl Brownies! You may have already seen them around at some local retail locations, with more coming soon. Heidi also shared that she’s starting to get more requests for gift boxes, especially with all the corporate meetings and incentive groups coming to Maui, who are looking for unique, made on Maui treats.
In fact, the shortbread cookies have been so popular that Heidi is now looking for support to grow her business, and is launching an Indiegogo campaign today! Here’s some highlights from the campaign:
This campaign will help us meet our growing demand and market our products both on Maui and beyond. Your contributions will enable me to expand Maui Sweet Cakes in the following ways:
* Hire more cookie ninjas! (i.e. expand our staff)
* Purchase needed kitchen equipment
* Invest in professional-quality marketing materials and photography
* Conquer the WORLD-wide web by completing our e-commerce website
And of course, donating to this project comes with some sweet perks.
While everyone is encouraged to donate to the Indiegogo campaign, if you want to place a direct cookie or brownie order before the e-commerce website is up, you can contact Heidi at email@example.com or (808)385-6202.
