Lemon Poppyseed Cake & Cookie are the flavors of the month at Gideon’s Bakehouse. The owner of Gideons, Steve, and his team are really good at creating some amazing cookies and cakes. They are also becoming well-known storytellers, as you can see by reading the newest edition to the family Bonnie Brae. Who becomes the next character with a great story along with Stuart Valencia. Now, it being September 1st, we get a new cookie and cake of the month.
Check out Gideon’s Facebook page from today for all the details and the backstory to our new favorite Bonnie Brae. Gideon’s is located in Disney Springs and also the East End Market in Orlando, stop by to get the flavors of the month at Gideon’s Bakehouse.
A lifetime ago, a sweet young girl fell with a mysterious illness on her family farm. Days became weeks, and weeks became months until, sadly, she was laid to rest in the nearby fields. In her honor, a new variety of lemon trees was planted by her headstone, and its fruit would be given her namesake, Bonnie Brae. Weeks later, the sprouts began to form. Bonnie’s father beheld what appeared to be a small hand emerging from the soil. He reached down to retrieve this curiosity, and, to his astonishment, a figure emerged. His wonderous daughter had been reborn with the same big blue eyes and playfully mischievous smile perfectly settled in a lemon head. Cherished by her family, Bonnie lived a happy life on her California farm but always carried the emptiness of feeling different. “Why did this happen?” and “Are there others out there like me?” she would ask herself each night until, one day, she heard tales of a peculiar Florida boy named Stuart Valencia. The next day, her adventure began as she headed across the country to Gideon’s Bakehouse. To be continued …
To welcome Bonnie Brae, we have created the Lemon Poppyseed Cookie, a brand new flavor exclusive to September. On top of the ingredients in the name, you’ll also find a lovely mix of White Chocolate Chips and some adorable little Lemon Mini Chips that we think you’ll enjoy. Just ask for Bonnie’s Cookie.
