Shop Update

It has been only 2 (what seems like short) weeks, and a lot has happened. On my way home this evening, we stopped by the shop, and I was so surprised to see that the demolition is almost completely finished! Last time we were there a few weeks ago, it was a realtor's office....after a day and a half of the demolition, it looks like this:

We got to meet the contractors and everything is moving ahead. For the first time, it felt real that the shop was going to be opening. Seeing the designs on paper is nothing like walking in and seeing the space. I cannot wait to be open! When you walk in the door, this is the view of the store as of right now:

Now that the construction will be starting soon, we will be checking in more often, and I will keep taking pictures of the process.

Here is one of the permit for the demolition (which was up a few weeks ago):

And, the lovely ceiling after the demo...

Hope you enjoyed seeing the progress on our dessert boutique & cake shop. Just a heads up that our website will be down within the next week or so while our new one is designed. You can still reach us at mica@confectioneiress and keep up with new pictures and updates on Facebook.

Also wanted to share my 13 year old niece's cake from this past weekend, which she LOVED!

Thanks for stopping by!

Coming Summer 2011.....

Confectioneiress Cupcakes & Sweets dessert boutique & cake shop! We are SO EXCITED to be sharing this news with everyone! I have had lots of questions so I wanted to explain things more. Our shop will be located in Zionsville Station Shopping Center (behind the McDonalds) off of 334 in Zionsville, IN.

We will be selling a variety of cupcakes, French macarons, whoopie pies, sugar cookies, cheesecake (did you know we make cheesecakes in most flavors that we make cupcakes in?!?) & more. You can come order cupcakes or other sweet treats, drink coffee or hot tea, and hang out with your friends and family in our shop.

Of course, we will still be doing custom cupcakes & cakes, wedding cakes, and treats for any event you can imagine. We are also excited to be offering custom cake design...bring in your invitations, decor for your party, jewelry, or anything that inspires you to a consultation, and we will put together sketches to create a custom design perfect for your event.

Over these next few months, I cannot wait to share with you our new logo, pictures of the construction process, and everything else. Also, just a heads up...our website will be down starting in a few weeks because we are getting a new one designed as well. We will still be adding pictures to our Facebook page and on Flickr and you can still reach us via e-mail at I love the new design and look of Confectioneiress, and I hope you all will too!

We have picked out the flooring, paint, and even got to draw out our own floor plan, and then the counters, lighting, and display set up are next to do! I am continuing to come up with all kinds of new flavor combinations and ideas to share with everyone at the shop. We have some awesome ideas and things will be offering that I can hardly contain myself from not sharing them with you :)

In the meantime, even though we are busy picking out everything for the store, we are taking orders, preparing for wedding season and the local farmer's markets in Indianapolis. Not too much longer and we will be back....less than 8 weeks if you are counting :)

Thank you to everyone for your support. We are so happy to hear that you all are as excited as we are!
