Yellow Brick Bakery serves a wide range of baked goods both sweet and savory. One of Hull and North's most popular treats is their take on the famous Cronut – a donut-shaped pastry made with croissant dough – layered with cinnamon sugar and topped with either a pink vanilla or lemon glaze.
The bakery is also known for their pies. It serves a variety of fresh fruit pies (only when the fruit is in season locally), but the biggest draw is the chocolate-bourbon-pecan pie, of which the bakery sold 1,000 just last year. On the savory side, the bakery specializes in hand pies; these pastries are formed into half-circle shapes with butter cream cheese dough that come out flaky every time. Several filling options are offered, but the most popular might be the candied jalapeño, bacon and cheese.
No matter what’s baked, though, the ingredients all come from hyperlocal sources. Hull and North have built strong relationships with local farmers during their time selling at markets, and they’ll continue to promote those farmers’ products in the new space. The bakery’s chicken comes from Hedgewood Farms in Paola, Kansas, and its bacon and bratwurst come from Jet Produce and Meats in Leavenworth, Kansas. The cornmeal is sourced from Meinke Farms in Bonner Springs, Kansas, and Olathe’s MorningView Market Farm provides the candied jalapeños. The bakery’s coffee is even local, coming from Lenexa's Maps Coffee.
“It takes longer to get things locally, and it’s easier and cheaper to go through a food distributor and get a bucket of whatever,” Hull says. “But we hugely value our relationships with the farmers we work with. We know them personally, we go to their farms, we’ve been in their homes. We love working with them, and we love telling people about their farms.”
