The Joys of Bakewell Cream

I ask you, is there anything as lovely as mile-high Bakewell Cream biscuits? I think not.

Hello there,

My name is David Reed, and I live in Bangor, Maine. My father worked for Byron H. Smith, the man, and the company, from the time he graduated from high-school until he died. The company is the company owned by the man who developed and sold Bakewell Cream. I can remember many days as a young boy, when my father would take me to work with him on the weekends (as a manager, he often worked weekends), and he'd put me to work packing Bakewell Cream into the tins while he did his paperwork. He always told me they had a big shipment to fill, and to pack as much as I could. As an adult, I realize he was just trying to keep me busy, but they really did sell TONS of the stuff.

Bakewell Cream biscuits were a regular staple around my home growing up, and I remember them fondly. And strawberry shortcake was never better than made with Bakewell Cream biscuits.


I'm doing research on Byron H. Smith and the company now, in preparation for an article or book about the company, his product(s) (they packed spices and vanilla extract too), and, of course, my father. I'd love to hear any stories or comments anyone might like to share. :-)
