Crème de la Crème owners Stephanie and Derek Chivers whip up elegant cake truffles and pops, specialty cakes, and gourmet cupcakes in their bakery, located in Slidell’s historical district. The diminutive desserts come in 50 gourmet varieties, ranging from the traditional german chocolate to unique concoctions such as vanilla chai latte and cinnamon brown sugar.
