Earlier this year in February I told you guys I would be back at some point to show off some more of the Baukery enamel pin designs from the Quirkory pin club. Finally after seven months I’m bringing that post to you all today!
As regular readers (and followers of my Instagram) may know, not only are Quirkory my favourite enamel pin creators, but they’re also my friends, AND I’m their brand ambassador too! So, whenever it comes down to writing for Quirkory it’s always a pleasure to do and a blog post I really look forward to writing. Due to this I have been so excited to show off the rest of the designs from the Baukery collection, which was a Patreon exclusive. Maybe Quirkory will release these in their store in the future as limited edition items? Who knows, but even so I couldn’t resist showing these cuties off!
Since June 2022 Quirkory have moved away from their Baukery collection to other enamel pin collections and Patreon tiers such as Pocketto Club (fan art), Pun Pals Club (animals and puns), and DELICOWS Club (cows and food). From what Quirkory has stated previously, the Baukery pins look to be coming back in the future, and by the sounds of through a Kickstarter! So, if you do love the adorable food and puppy enamel pins, make sure to keep eyes peeled for this in the (hopefully) near future!
So, for this weeks blog post I wanted to show you all the rest of the Baukery enamel pins, four in total running between February to May 2022.
As I said previously, talking about Quirkory and showing off their cute designs really makes me smile and it especially makes my day when I see new designs come from them. Their Patreon is amazing for showcasing any new and upcoming designs and for as little as £2.50 a month you’ll get access to all this and more! This price does not include their pin club. I’ll go into more detail of how much the pin club costs later on in the post.
At the start of October 2021, the Baukery officially opened! The name of the pin club comes from merging the Italian word “bau”, which means “woof” together with the English word “bakery”. Quirkory felt the perfect blend between the two languages represented them perfectly and hence, Baukery was born!
As you may have already gathered just by the name of the pin club, Baukery is all about adorable dogs from around the world bringing us their countries best and most knowable baked goods! I love dogs, (which I don’t think comes as a surprise to many) and as an avid lover of savoury foods, baked goods is something I adore, so, mixing the two together really did appeal to me when Quirkory first told me about their idea back in 2021!
The overall presentation of the Baukery rewards when they arrive on your doorstep is amazing and as always, Quirkory have really paid attention to every detail, which I always find to be unique to them.
The packaging for the enamel pins is adorable as it came in a white/brown jiffy bag for that month with a thank you sticker with the dog of that month on it. I loved these so much I cut out February to April to keep! Sadly I didn’t receive one for May, which made me a little sad. 😦
Alongside your enamel pin you also received a special sticker with the relevant dogs paw pad which also states which month it is. Unfortunately I’ve either misplaced the 7th month, or I wasn’t sent one.
Each pin comes in a little brown packet that resembles what you may get in a bakery when buying goods. Quirkory even went to the lengths of adding some nutritional facts about each enamel pin, as I’ve shown above. They’re all unique to each dog breed too, so it’s not like a generic sticker that has been added. Each brown packet is sealed with a ribbon sticker that has the Baukery logo on too.
The backing card is like a little book (if you will!) for the enamel pins and each one is the same with a bakery theme. One side you have the café door and the Baukery logo/sign and on the other side you had some seating outside of he Baukery café window. The café is decorated in wisteria flowers, which just give it such a gorgeous look and touch!
Then when you open up the backing card you are presented with your enamel pin of the month, as well as a “Puppy & Treat ID Card”, which Quirkory have partially filled in. I love how the “Puppy name”, “Adoption date” and “Owner Name & Signature” fields are blank for you to fill in.
The part of the backing card the enamel pin sits on is adorable too. When you remove the pin you get to see what the whole design looks like, which is a serving area in the bakery/café. I love that the dog of the month sits on the serving board.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. Quirkory and their attention to detail is 100% and I’m here for it!!!
Finally, it’s time to show off all of the enamel pins with you!
February 2022 – Canada – Labrador and sugar cinnamon beaver tail.
If there is something I learnt from this enamel pin design it’s that Labradors are a Canadian dog breed! I always thought they originated from America! I mentioned previously in February that the baked good in the Labradors mouth reminded me of melon pan (Japanese sweet bun) and how this confused me as it’s actually a sugar cinnamon beaver tail! It’s basically fried dough covered in cinnamon sugar that is said to resemble a beaver, which Canada are known for! I’d never heard of one until Quirkory announced their February pin, so I definitely learnt something new through the Baukery pin club! I love the little detail on the Labradors cheek of the blush, it’s so cute!
March 2022 – Golden Retriever and Cornish pasty.
Out of all seven designs from the Baukery collection, the Golden Retriever design is my favourite! This is another breed I didn’t know was from the UK, I even turned to Dane to ask him and he didn’t know either. I don’t know why, but when I see Golden Retrievers, I think of Canada or America, but I think this is due to the breed being so popular on the other side of the pond. Of course the UK pupper has to be holding a Cornish pasty, it would be rude not to. My reason for this enamel pin design being my favourite out of the bunch is purely for how bloody cute the Golden Retriever looks with its fluffy fur and flappy long ears! I can just imagine a real Golden Retriever running along the beach after stealing a tourists Cornish pasty! Back in February I was so excited for this enamel pin to arrive and since it has, I can’t stop looking at it. 🙂
April 2022 – Siberian Husky and strawberry bun/vatrushka.
When I was in my late teens and early twenties I always wanted to own a Husky, but since then I’ve gone off of the idea. Huskies are an adorable breed, but they’re definitely not one for me! They’re known for shedding, as well as being very vocal, two no no’s for me. 😛 This being said, I’m happy to finally own a Siberian Husky in enamel pin form, especially when it’s as cute as Quirkory’s design is! As the Husky originates from Russia, this little cutie is holding a vatrushka, a pastry in the shape of a ring with quark in the middle, as well as fruit. Quirkory went for strawberry for their Husky, which I love! The red and pink colours of the strawberries work so well with the black and white of the Husky!
May 2022 – Shiba Inu and strawberry matcha roll.
Finally for the last Baukery design in the series (for now!) we have the Shiba Inu, a dog breed I would love to own at some point in the future! As a massive lover of Japan and their culture, the Shiba is also a huge part of that and I won’t lie when I say Shiba merchandise is everywhere there, even Shiba cafes! We went to one when we first travelled to Japan in 2020 and it was such a relaxing experience. Due to this, I was really excited for my Shiba enamel pin to arrive! The little Shiba baby is holding a strawberry matcha roll, not really a bakery item I knew existed previously! Since finding out it was a thing, I really want to try or make one! I love how the Shiba is winking, as well as one of it’s back feet showing it’s toe beans! This is such an adorable design, I can’t get enough of it!
So there we have it! All the Quirkory Baukery designs to date. I really hope Quirkory bring the Kickstarter they mentioned to life, as I would honestly love to own all of the Baukery designs. As I’ve mentioned before, I love dogs and I’m all for pastries and baked goods, so the two together are just perfect to me.
I’m still hoping in the future for designs such as an Australian Cattle Dog holding fairy bread, a Japanese Spitz holding a Taiyaki fish treat, and especially a Miniature Schnauzer holding Lebkuchen for a cute Christmas theme!
Overall I just want to say how much I love Baukery, as well as how proud I am of Quirkory for setting themselves this Patreon pin club goal almost a year ago and really fulfilling it by bringing adorable dogs and baked goods themed pins into our lives and more! Looking at their enamel pin designs daily in my home really does bring a smile to my face and I’m excited for what 2022 brings for them. I’m planning on creating an enamel pin hoop or flag that looks like a park with a café to add all my pins to!
