Say hello to our new name: The French Confection Co.! Yes, we’ve changed our name…surprised? Well, it’s something that I had been thinking about doing for awhile. It was a few weeks ago that I seriously began to think about it, finally putting it in my mind as something that I was going to do.


So here’s the thing about buttercream: it’s delicious. I grew up stealing finger-fulls of the stuff whenever my Mom was baking, and it was the most amazing thing ever. Frosting in general is pretty darn good in every form you can think of, from ganache and fudge frostings, to royal icing, buttercream, and beyond! My […]


Wow, I have been a pretty bad blogger! So sorry for the absence; it’s been almost five months…woa! Anyway, things have been pretty darn busy which is the excuse that I am going to use for the reason I haven’t written much lately (it’s a pretty good excuse, hehe). Between running the bake shop as […]


That’s right, it’s December! Gosh, how time flies! Well, the busiest time of the year for me is already starting (the second week of December is fully booked!), so I figured it would be fun to feature a few festive  (wow, that’s a lot “f”s in one sentence) desserts. I had been so busy with […]

Hello! It’s been a few weeks again, but so much has been going on, it’s hard to keep up. I love being so tired from work–I mean, even though my feet usually hurt and I’m in need of a good massage at the end of a big order, but it’s that good kind of tired […]


Happy Monday! I know some people don’t think there is really any reason to be happy on Mondays, but it’s always nice to say anyway, especially if someone is having a “case of the Mondays” (anyone seen “Office Space”? Haha…). Well, it’s been awhile since the last post, I just can never find time to […]


Don’t ya just love it when Friday rolls along!? I sure do, especially when it seems to have flown by so quickly–that’s when I know I had a productive week. And I sure did! How did your week go? Well, the Surprise Mother’s Day Cookie Giveaway has officially ended, and the results are in! The […]


Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching! Next Sunday, May 13th, is the glorious day reserved for that special woman that we love so much: our mothers! But, I think everyday should be Mother’s Day–I mean, they do so much for their families, unselfishly, and do it for years and years and years. My mom has been […]


What a week this has been–actually the past few weeks have been pretty busy busy! There’s never a dull moment, but it’s a good thing. We’re moving right along with the planning of our new store, and it’s looking like August will be the month we’ll open. As more information comes along, I’ll be sure […]
