If you've even glanced at my website recently or reviewed the blog, I'll bet you're tired of seeing "WELCOME FALL"....sorry friends. We were hit with the cold/flu bug earlier and still recovering a bit. Family came from Texas (YAY) and we had an early Christmas celebration. As we wind down 2017, it is time for catching up, updating and a bit of downsizing.
You may have noticed that I've trimmed the online ordering to reflect Caramels only. Most of my customers are local and can pick up or have delivered anything from my menu. If you reside outside of my delivery area, I can still prepare (in a commercial kitchen) all caramels and ship anywhere in the United States.
I've been quite busy the past few months with local sales and a few craft markets. The biggest one was Machado's Apple Festival in October. It was an all-day event filled with fun, hard work and new customers!! Thanks everyone!!!
I am hoping to revive local bread baking for those friends and customers interested in fresh breads from the plain white, whole grain loaves to baguettes, dinner rolls and specialty-type breads. I will keep all of you posted here as well as on Facebook.
I must now leave my office (Starbucks #623), which is very much like home! Thanks, Rosie and my barista family!!! I do hope to keep up with blogging here and welcome your comments and suggestions for future blog posts.
HAPPY, JOYFUL AND BLESSED NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL!
Thank you for checking out my blog! I am Patrice, owner and chef at PATRICE'S CAKES AND CONFECTIONS. After a few career changes from Naval Officer to a state auditor, I decided to attend culinary school and open a baking business. The "About" section provides a bit more insight about how I started. I hope you will enjoy the occasional blog post, take a peek at my handiwork and, perhaps, order some caramels. Thanks for checking in!
