I am, BAKED IN BLOOD. I am, an unconventional entity of a "black metal nature" trying to strive in this contemporary society through baking. I am, an opinionated and persnickety Aries with a need to do most things my way. In simple terms, I bake cookies and listen to black and death metal.
Death, cancer, death, cancer and oh yeah, more death. A family member, my cousin, had cancer and died. She always wanted to have her own business but never did. I love black and death metal, and enjoy baking cookies very much. I thought maybe if I united the two maybe I could give it a go as a business in honor of my cousin. Then another cousin was diagnosed with cancer but is surviving thankfully. Then one of my uncles died from cancer in 2013. My online cookie store, BAKED IN BLOOD, started out as an homage to my cousin who always wanted her own business and then other family members as well. But now it is also a way to pay tribute to family in general. Death is an intense force that I truly respect.
Now I am baking black metal cookies for the people of the San Francisco bay area through my online cookie delivery store based in Oakland. I bake and sell my black metal cookies so that you too can honor your friends and family with them, and for you to enjoy the energy and intensity of black metal as I do.
I am a metalhead. My hope is that metalheads, industrial freaks, punks, goths as well as other subcultures (kink culture,comic books geeks, gamers, cos players, horror/sci-fi nuts and so many others) will find in my business a trusted source they can go to for freshly baked cookies. I would like us (metalheads, industrial freaks, punks and goths) to build our community with trust and support and then build better ties with the greater community.
