Don't get too excited...'s just a wrapper. However! We have reason to believe that Mast Brothers bars will soon be making their way to us from Brooklyn. Oh, we've missed them so!
The bars, of course.
We are professionals.

Ms. Smith, we like you a lot.

Whitney Smith makes cake plates so pretty you'll be compelled to bake diplay-worthy cakes. I'm more of a bread-baker than a cake-maker, but her gorgeous stands would pretty-up even my...let's say rustic loaves. Or keep the oven firmly turned to "Off" & get yourself a Whitney Smith Glasses & Lipgloss Plate, or a Whitney Smith Dish Soap & Sponge Stand!

The Miettegirl & the Sea

Here at the Confiserie, we entertain ourselves by setting up little vignettes, dreaming up complicated surroundings & circumstances for our candy. Candy nerds we are, one & all.

Our favorite spot in the shop right now is nicknamed The Captain's Table. We imagine a taciturn, bearded Captain who's off at sea, but we're keeping his table just the way he left it for the day he returns.* It holds his salt water taffy, chocolate sardines, and gold bullion (has he a bit of pirating in his past, or does he just enjoy milk chocolate Gianduja?). Weather-worn maps, a sextant (whatever that is), an hour-glass, everything a captain could need. Still, it seems like something's missing....

Ah, of course: a licorice pipe. Much better.

*Does that make us Brand-ay?

Marshmallows, & Much, Much More

We're super-excited to be here, and even more excited that our handmade marshmallows are back! Our current flavors are Honey, Vanilla, & Lavender, and they are as soft & pillowy as any marshmallows could hope to be! On your way to a black-tie bonfire? Add our snappy graham crackers and some fine local chocolate (Maison Bouche, perhaps?), and you've got the poshest s'mores ever!
