Our purpose is simple: to make you smile.
THE SHORT &
SWEET OF IT:
From our logo, to our otter-ly punny catch-phrase, to each one of our treats and sweets, our goal is to make you smile. This has been our founders intent from the very beginning.
Sarah discovered baking sitting on a corner counter in her parent's kitchen in Central Jersey. She soon realized one of the main reasons she kept baking was the smile she hoped would cross a persons face when they took their first bite (and their second and their third hopefully).
After graduate school she baked professionally for two years before striking out on her own and starting Pipit's Bakery, a homage to her father's nickname for her growing up.
Her otterly adorable mascot came out of her love of those playful and fierce creatures. Plus, who can't not smile when they see an otter holding a wooden mixing spoon.
THE LADY, THE NAME, & THE OTTER
Sarah Kauzmann, founder and owner of Pipit's Bakery, grew up baking sitting on the corner counter in her parent's kitchen in Central Jersey.
After college and graduate school, she searched for something that sparked joy in herself and those she worked with and for. She quickly realized a desk job was not for her so she decided to give baking a go by accepting a position as an assistant pastry chef in a small town bakery.
She learned quickly, soaking up every bit of knowledge she could from the other chefs she worked with and after many 12-28 hour shifts (yes 28), she made it through her first holiday season (two pastry chefs baking 800 pies over Thanksgiving and Christmas).
Two years later she could not have be happier to go out on her own in this next adventure, starting her own business. Baking in a commercial kitchen located in Perkasie, PA and running all around to different events and farmers markets, she's never been happier.
Sarah grew up in a tight knit family with wonderful parents and an older brother who all encouraged her to follow her dreams and have fun in life.
To this day Sarah's dad often calls her and her brother by nicknames he came up with when they were children; there was Fat Boy for her brother (lovingly given due to his chubby 9 pound weight when he was born), and, you guessed it, Pipit for Sarah.
Sarah always loved the name, thinking of it as fun and vibrant, so when it came time to think of a name for the business, she knew Pipit would be perfect.
As you may have guessed, otters are our favorite animal but the use of the otter goes beyond the liking of an animal.
Otters are fun-loving, playful creatures who are both adorable and fierce. They're an unexpected mascot for a baking brand which makes them perfect for us.
Our brand is all about fun, unexpected, and beautiful baked goods all run by a fierce lady in command.
Plus who doesn't love thinking about an otter baking?
