Classic Wedding Cake
By the slice

Our "I'm Not Sharon" Chocolate Cake was so popular that we were inspired to branch out a bit. First we brought back our Limoncello Raspberry Layer Cake. Then we really started to dream and drool. We asked our customers, what is the one cake that you want us to make? The clear favorite was Wedding Cake (without having to dress up). A sublte almond flavor, with a real buttercream frosting is what really makes it special. We did the research and found a wonderful almond flavoring that was absolutely dreamy. We then built a cake around that. You can pop in any day to get a slice of this, or order a whole cake for a party. Just understand this is a 10", 4 layer cake that weighs 10 lbs.

Sometimes progress is bad.  Well, this is one of those times that we made a mistake in downsizing this decadent and memorable treat. Rest assured, we will not make this mistake again.
chiefs sugar cookies A Humble New Addition
Kansas City has lost a legend, Len Dawson. Few have touched as many lives in KC with their kindness, generosity and indomitable spirit. We think of Buck, Mike (Murphy) and Len. I have heard and am hearing stories of 3 of these KC giants. All 3 never hesitated when approached in public to share a story, meet a friend or sign their autograph. When you lose someone like this you can dhonor them two ways. First, you can live your life like them. Second, you keep their memories alive.
We have added Len Dawson to our KC Chiefs Sugar Cookie collection and you have resonded with stories galore. We promise to strive to keep up and will make these through the season. 
buffalo chicken sandwich Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Our newest Sandwich is a craving that you didn't know you had.  Forget about fried chicken, try our sous vide chicken breast in our house buffalo sauce, that is covered with our house made blue cheese dressing.
cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting Rock'n & Roll'n
We love to visit with our guest about favorite food memories. One bite of these and you will flash back to walking through Ward Parkway Mall in the 1990's.
We start with a Brioche dough, plenty of Saigon cinnamon, European butter and topped with a scratch made Cream Cheese frosting. Oh, and we found a way to make the entire Cinnamon Roll just like the middle.
turkey club sandwich Turkey Club Sandwich

This is my all time favorite Summertime sandwich. Yes, even over our BLT. This is more balanced with the turkey, cheese and special sauce in addition to the Berkshire bacon, lettuce and tomato. We also build this on our hearty, thick cut sourdough bread to hold it all together. I sometimes have to schmush it a bit to be able to eat it, but man oh man!

the Best Cookie in Kansas!
Cranberry Orange Cookie
Over the last 20 years, Robert Duensing has earned the title of The Cookie Man, from Kansas City!  This title was first given to him by Toby Tobin, live on the radio, over 13 years ago. 

A great and memorable cookie is all about the flavors, texture and aroma.  You will find that many of our signature cookies are 1/4 lb, which are big enough to share, but good enough that you won't.  Robert is obsessed with creating recipes that are not too sweet, so you can enjoy the flavors of the great ingredients that he searches out for each unique recipe.
This is something that Robert strives
to live up to every day.

What Makes BRB Special? Current Top 5 Goodies
  1. Everything is Scratch:  Absolutely everything is made from scratch.  In today's world this is the only way we can be sure of what is in the foods we sell.  Unlike most every other bakery we do not use any box or bag mixes that you just add water to.  We don't even use just plain old dried cranberries, we take that extra step to make everything special.
  2. Best in the World:  We search throughout the world for the best ingredients we can find to elevate every single ingredient of every product we make.  Artisanal bread is pretty simple as it only has 3 ingredients:  flour, water and salt.  We use King Arthur flour, sea salt and filtered water.  European butter, Madagascar bourbon vanilla and real Limoncello are a few other examples.
  3. Original Recipes:  Every single recipe we use is a Best Regards Bakery original that involved many weeks and months of testing.  Our French Country Bread took 7 months and our Signature Chocolate Chip Cookie to 3 months and 72 test recipes.
  4. Friendly Service:  We are a family owned business worked by family and friends that really care about your bakery and gifting experience.  We have been around for 18 years and we still listen to your feedback.
  5. Passion:  In case you have not noticed, we are foodies with a passion for the best quality food possible.  We are constantly looking for that one extra step we can take to elevate the perfect sweet treat to something even better.
  1. Big Beef Dip: We have taken the idea of a French Dip sandwich and found a way to make it just a little bit better. House made Ciabatta bun, piled high with super flavorful, tender and moist beef and Au Jus that will remind you of an old school steak house and not too salty.
  2. Porchetta Sandwich:  Many are calling this the best Sandwich they have ever had. Period. Slow roasted pork bell from field raised Berkshire hogs with 12 herbs and spices.  This is served on our house made Ciabatta bun.
  3. Iced Sugar Cookies:  Imagine a cookie with all the flavor of the best shortbread, but soft and beautifully decorated with an icing that is not too sweet.
  4. Cranberry Orange Cookies:  If a Scone could grow up into an amazing cookie, this is what it would be!  This has the perfect balance of orange, cranberry and moist, tender cookie, but not too sweet. Just selected the Best Cookie in Kansas!
  5. Scratch Foods = Fond Family Memories
