“Ma’am, are you sure you only want these frozen cheesecakes, could I interest you in our other products?” Su Tang’s eyes immediately lit up when she heard Madam Yang mentioning she wanted to take some cakes back as gifts.
Although Madam Yang and Lu Wan’er had never explicitly stated their identities, Su Tang had done some investigation and knew that they were both related to Lu Xiancheng, the deputy county magistrate. As the wife of a deputy county magistrate, Madam Yang’s friends in the County Seat would definitely not be people from ordinary families. Therefore, with her giving gifts to those people, it would be a breakthrough for introducing Su Tang’s desserts to the upper class of the County Seat.
That would only be good news for her cafe. After all, Qinghe Town wasn’t very far from the Qinyuan County Seat. It took a little less than an hour by carriage from one place to the other. Thus, it wouldn’t be difficult for those wealthy families to make a trip to visit her cafe or send their servants over to buy some things.
“What other products?” Madam Yang’s curiosity was piqued by Su Tang’s question.
“Well, it’s like this: the frozen cheesecake I prepared for you today needs to be refrigerated. If it gets exposed to temperatures that are too high then it will melt.”
“However, our other products, such as our cupcakes or the cookies we introduced today, generally have a two-day freshness period. So long as they are kept dry and not stored in a place too damp or dark, they will be fine to eat even two days later.”
“Of course, right now the weather outside is still cold, so my cafe’s desserts can be kept for a little longer, but within two days is still the best window for eating them. If you delay longer than two days then the taste will degrade. “
Su Tang carefully introduced her cafe’s products for a while before moving on and saying: “Thus, if madam plans to give these things as gifts, it would probably be appropriate to store the frozen cheesecake separately, while everything else can be stored together. In fact, if madam is interested, our cafe actually already has a special gift box option on our menu. If you order the gift box, you can mix and match different kinds of desserts according to your wishes.”
A month or so ago Su Tang had her Dessert Cafe launch this gift box option specifically because of the New Year. After all, at that time she had many customers coming to her shop to buy gifts to give out while visiting relatives, so the gift boxes had sold very well.
Even now, there were still many people who were celebrating various occasions, such as getting married or having birthdays, who would come to buy her cafe’s gift boxes as gifts.
Thus, when Su Tang heard Madam Yang mention she wanted to give some of the cakes as gifts, she immediately recommended the more convenient gift box option.
Madam Yang was a bit surprised. Just now she had felt that Su Tang’s temperament was relatively cold and distant, but when she heard Su Tang passionately and intimately introducing her cafe’s products, even mentioning all the various customization options, she began to have a different impression.
Madam Yang suspected that she must have misinterpreted things just now. After all, just look at how enthusiastic and warm this Su Tang girl was.
In fact, Su Tang’s motto was to always be very enthusiastic when it came to money and to give 110%!
“Anyway, let’s eat our cakes first. TangTang won’t run away.” Lu Wan’er, who was still eating her cake and drinking her milk tea on the side, felt a bit dissatisfied to see her mother and Su Tang suddenly stop to talk about random things, so she interjected.
There was such a delicious cake right in front of them, so why did they want to talk so much? Life couldn’t be lived without delicious food! And, anyway, it’s not like it would be too late to talk about it after they all finished eating.
Madam Yang had originally wanted to ask and see what this ‘gift box’ looked like, but after hearing her daughter’s words, she could only shake her head and say, “Alright, let’s eat our cake first.” Then she looked at Su Tang and said, “I’d like to have a look at your gift box in a few moments.”
Su Tang smiled and replied, “Of course.”
Madam Yang and Lu Wan’er then ate all the cake and cookies that Su Tang had brought out and even drank their milk tea clean until their cups were empty. It seemed that they really found her new products delicious. Once they were done, Madam Yang followed Su Tang to take a look at the gift boxes.
In fact, the gift boxes sold by the Dessert Cafe had all been made by Carpenter Wang’s brother who Su Tang had worked together with in the past. Carpenter Wang’s brother was very skilled at carving these kinds of fine and delicate works. The gift boxes were about one foot square in size and had been polished until the wood was very smooth. On the top, he had carved in the brand logo that Su Tang had designed previously, while on the sides there he had carved various fine patterns in a wide circle.
