Where dose the name come from?

Hey Guys! Happy Monday!! ?? we thought we would put a cute lil pic of ourselves up, just because we like to say hi occasionally.

If you haven’t met us yet, we are Ox and Rabbit. Taken from our birth years in the Luna calendar. You may ask why the name? What does it have to do with brownies and decadent cakes?! Well… Not a lot to be honest. But when you have a little small business like we do, you have to put a lot in, and a lot of your energy and personality.Lots of sleepless nights, early mornings and never enough coffee!! But we love it, we love to put a little bit our personality into our products and anytime we have the pleasure of catching up with clients. So that’s what’s with the name. ❤️❤️
