Disclaimer: Bumblebee Bakery Horsham is owned and run by a close personal friend. I ordered several batches of cookies for my employees as a thank you gift for all their hard work through the COVID-19 lockdown and paid full price for the order. This showcase is not sponsored or endorsed by Bumblebee Bakery.
Myself and a core team have been working throughout the COVID-19 lockdown providing essential services to the countries key workers and critical personnel. It has been hard work and as a thank-you I wanted to provide them all a small token of my appreciation, a box of freshly baked luxury cookies.
My close friend, and expert baker, Morgan Giles, opened Bumblebee Bakery shortly after the lockdown and after being placed on Furlough herself. She setup the business to provide delicious baked treats to Horsham and the local area. My order was for 11 boxes from her luxury cookie range and included Nutella stuffed cookies, Salted Caramel with White Chocolate chips, Stem Ginger and Dark Chocolate and Oreo Chunk cookies. She kindly delivered these to my office where they were duly distributed to the team and the feedback was undoubtedly positive.
The cookies were really well received by all and lots of socially distanced swapping took place so everyone was able to try a different cookie. I personally scoffed down one of each – my favourite was the Nutella stuffed, with cookie surrounding a gooey ball of Nutella hazelnut chocolate spread.
The Stem Ginger and Dark Chocolate cookies were outstanding with amazing fiery ginger and the classic flavour paring with Dark Chocolate makes for an indulgent treat, perfectly accompanying an rich espresso.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Oreo chunk cookies too, which were dutifully devoured with my morning coffee the next day and was just as fresh as the day they were baked. Finally the salted caramel cookies did not last long enough to get a photo, and while a photo is usually worth a thousand words, the lack of a photo in this context should speak more than words ever could; they were so delicious!
Morgan creates some truly wonderful bakes and her prices are very reasonable, starting from just £7.50 for half a dozen cookies. She offers a bespoke baking service for special events and her cupcakes and cookies can be ordered online with free local delivery in Horsham and a small delivery charge across local Sussex towns.
