Pinnies and Poppyseeds

Pinnies & Poppy Seeds began as an idea – a dream, really – born out of a four year long career in confectionery and a lifetime love affair with baking. They believe in quality, providence, passion and believe that their products reflect that. They don’t try to make everything, but want everything we they make to be spectacular!
