Springtime In Paris

May 2, 2014

So a couple weeks ago was probably one of the busiest and most stressful weeks of my life; even more so than when I was in college and working full time. I mean, it really tested my ability to work on minimal sleep. However, regardless of how crazy that week was, it finally produced a […]

So it’s officially Spring! I’ll admit that it kind of caught me by surprise; I suppose the changing months have all caught me by surprise…it’s just happening so fast! Anyway, in addition to keeping up with orders (trying to, at least), I was able to put together an Easter menu for The French Confection Co.!

Well, the new year is finally here and just when I thought I’d have some time to relax after the hustle of the holidays…it’s already time for a new holiday! Valentine’s Day is now just around the corner; is it just me, or has the month of January gone by incredibly fast?

Between running the bake shop as […]

For Goodness Cakes!

October 20, 2012

I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved the whole “play on words” kind of thing. I remember way back when, when I first made the decision to start Be Sweet, one of my toughest decisions was to come up with a name! While I was working at the bakery in NYC, I was lucky […]

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 […]
