Share Some Sweetness this Mother's Day

Share Some Sweetness this Mother's Day

If you're still looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift, we've got you covered.  Our creative team has produced chocolate flower pots filled with mouth-watering treats, chocolate sunflowers, dainty tea cups made with (you guessed it!) chocolate and a great selection of chocolate covered caramel. Our boxed truffles are always a treat and never disappoint. Cakebread Artisan Bakery has created a beautiful cake (think Orange Creamsicle with white chocolate ganache) and some delightful heart-shaped cookies.

Be Kind (to everyone, especially Moms), Be Calm (just because),

Be Safe (we do sell out!)
