Q&A with Maria, Owner and Head Pastry Chef In Training
What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
LaylaBella Sweet Shoppe began with an idea to design fully personalized, themed candy buffets for special occasions. As we grew, we found that our customers desired a completely customized display, and were asking for dessert items and unique treats to accompany their candy displays. So we decided to pull out those handed-down family recipes, whipped up some old-fashioned favorites with our own gourmet twist, and expanded our offerings. Now, we not only offer desserts for contracted events, but they can be ordered online and delivered.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
[Our sweets are] prepared in quantities to have hand-delivered as a gift, as platters for a special event, or as a half-dozen to hoard for yourself. With choices like gourmet rice crispy squares, personalized fortune cookies, chocolate mousse shots, French macarons, and much more, there is sure to be something to satisfy every craving and keep you coming back again and again.
Notable accomplishments include [receiving the] Wedding Wire Couples Choice Awards 2013 for Edible Favors and Catering, [and being] voted Best Specialty Dessert Business in Richmond, VA, by the Richmond Wedding Event Network (VAWE) and WEDsmart 2013.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
We offer an array of delicious desserts, old-fashioned favorites, and unique treats hand-crafted with freshly made cream, fruit purees, quality chocolate, and whole ingredients. Our seasonal berries and fruits are locally grown and picked the day of your order. All of our pastries, chocolates, and confections are made in-house specifically per the customer's order.
