Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • The sticky buns and goo ship frozen with dry ice, which may have evaporated during shipment. This is normal. Please take care not to touch any remaining dry ice with bare hands. Upon receipt, store sticky buns and goo in the refrigerator for up to 1 day or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Serving Instructions

  • Thaw sticky buns and goo in refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for 2–3 hours. Pour goo in 9x13 baking dish, covering the bottom evenly. Place sticky buns cut side down in baking dish, evenly spaced. Cover with plastic wrap and place in warm spot to proof for approx. 2 hours, or until dough is puffy, pillowy and soft, and sticky buns are touching.
  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F in a conventional oven or 325°F in a convection oven. Bake for 35–45 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool in dish on wire rack for 20–30 minutes. One at a time, invert sticky buns onto serving platter, and spoon extra goo and pecans from bottom of dish over top of buns.
  • The sticky buns are best served warm or within 4 hours of baking. They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day, and then warmed in a 325°F conventional oven or 300°F convection oven for 6–8 minutes before serving.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from DELICIOUS - just like the Flour bakery I had the delicious sticky buns at Boston's famous Flour bakery many times, so I know how these are supposed to taste... and the ones form W-S did not disappoint. The buns and container of goo arrived cold not frozen. The instructions state that I could put them in the freezer, but I chose to place them in the refrigerator and bake them that evening. I followed the straightforward instructions and placed the goo and rolls in a 9x13" glass baking dish. I proofed the rolls in my oven on the proof setting (sometimes I proof items by heating my oven to 150 degrees, turning OFF the oven, and placing the items in the oven for a few hours). The instructions say to “bake for 35-45 mins or until golden brown, " so I set the oven timer for 35 mins, at which time I saw that the tops of all the buns were brown (not golden as specified) but not fully cooked – so I loosely laid foil over the buns and baked them 5 more mins. (I know that my oven temperature is very accurate.) In hindsight, I would have placed the foil on top of the buns earlier. I waited only 10 mins before removing the buns from the pan (not the 20-30 mins as specified), because I was afraid that that goo would harden too much. I ate one immediately and it was DELICIOUS. I wrapped up the other 7 in plastic wrap - and placed them in a plastic container in the FREEZER. My family and I ate the frozen buns one by one after thawing on the counter or straight from the freezer - in both cases we warmed them VERY gently in the microwave before eating. I highly RECOMMEND these sticky buns - they are so high quality, decadent and yummy. Each one is filling, but not too big. Mine came out looking just like the W-S photo!

  • Is there nutritional information on your pastries that I could read before purchasing?  I am interested in the classic croissants and flour bakery sticky buns.
