27 April 2016 - Off to the Great New Zealand Bake-Off

Like proud parents watching their first child go to school, we've donned Ryan with a new uniform and a packed lunch to go down to Christchurch. Ryan will be participating in the Farmers Mill Homebake Great New Zealand Bake Off and to make sure he doesn't get lonely we're sending Ed to keep him out of mischief. Good Luck Ryan!

13 April 2016 - Great New Zealand Bake Off!

Good Evening Volare Fans! Last week we thought we'd try our hands at another competition considering how well the last one went, so Ryan got creative and we sent a box down to the Farmers Mill Homebake Great New Zealand Big Bake Off. The categories available are international regions, so we submitted to the French, Italian, German, Kiwi and Swiss categories. Competition looked fierce so wish us luck as we wait with baited breath to hear how we went!

4 April 2016 - A HUGE THANKS!

Hey Volare Fans! We promised to donate money to the New Zealand Red Cross for each specially marked pack of Red Cross Buns, and we’re proud to announce we raised $615.50! However, bakers are notorious for funny counting (a baker's dozen is 13? Whose idea was that!) so we’re just going to go ahead and sign a cheque for $1000 for the Red Cross. A huge thank you to everyone who accepted the red crossed Hot X Buns, we couldn’t have done this without you.

Please note the cheque being handed over is a large novelty sized cheque, Sean is that massive he makes novelty cheques look small.
