Fancu seeing you here 

If you’re anything like me, you’re obsessed with sugar in any and all forms. I’m talking milk chocolate, cake, cookies, dark chocolate, ice cream and literally anything that could cause me to go into a sugar coma. For my 10th birthday, my parents gave me a box of Oops All Berries Captain Crunch because I loved them so much (I was one coooool kid, let me tell ya). 


When I’m not whipping up buttercream, I’m a barre instructor at a local barre studio. It's called balance, people! I’m always on the look out for a cute cake plate or vintage cookbook, and am a firm believer that life is too short to not enjoy dessert. 

How it Began

When my mom taught me how to bake when I was a kid, I loved pretending that I was on a cooking show. As if I was in front of a studio audience, I would narrate my baking techniques out loud. My mom became my trusty sous chef, known to my imaginary viewers as "Francine", thus Francine's Sweets was born as a tribute to my mom who spent many hours teaching me how to measure flour, and then wiping half that flour up from the kitchen floor.


Food has always been a source of comfort. Walking into the kitchen of my childhood home and smelling fresh baked cookies or homemade spaghetti sauce holds a very special place in my heart. Sharing food and desserts when a church member or loved one died was the same as saying “I care about you and I love you.” So many of my favorite childhood memories revolve around food that my mom made for me, especially desserts. And while the taste of these desserts was always amazing, more importantly, it meant the gathering of family, friends and love.


My mission at Francine’s Sweets is to create desserts that look beautiful and taste even better. But more importantly, my goal is to provide a dessert that allows you to gather with those you love or spread love to someone who needs it. Food is meant to be shared with others. So while it might just seem like dessert, it’s more than that. It’s surprising your friend who just got dumped with chocolate chip cookies. Or seeing the excitement on a child’s face as she lifts an Oreo Extreme cake out of the box. Sharing food is how I show love to the most important people in my life. Baking is a way for me to share God's love with those around me. Thank you for allowing me to spread some of that love to you and your community.
