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.!

Black, Gold, and Navy Beauty

February 24, 2014

So my curse, I suppose, is that I come up with ideas for cake designs and dessert table themes quite often…and usually at great expense. But I guess I have that John Hammond attitude towards it all and just go with it, “sparing no expense” and getting it done. I also won’t really let myself […]

Winter Woodland Dessert Table

November 17, 2013

Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve written anything! Let’s just say things have been very busy since I was last here. Thankfully, the name change was warmly welcomed by my customers, family, and friends, and I am so glad that everyone likes it so much. And can you believe the holidays […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

What a busy week this has been so far, and it’s only Wednesday! But Wednesday’s are good days, the so-called “hump” day–I always found that to be a funny saying, but it’s true–you make it over the hump of the week and it’s an easy glide into the weekend. These last few days have been […]

I just realized that this post is all about COOKIES!! Cookies are always so much fun–they’re mess free, you can grab ’em and go, and they’re always good with milk (hopefully you like milk)! They can be a little dangerous because you’ll probably find yourself (just as I find myself) grabbing more than one, and […]
