Confections & Us


Hi! I'm Meagan, aka 'Witch', a nickname bestowed by a dear friend. I grew up in a family of cooks. The kind of food that 'hugs' you and comforts your soul: My grandmother's fried chicken; my grandfather's spiced shrimp; my great-grandmother's biscuits that are still legend. Among these cooks is one special baker in my lifetime: My mom. At the hem of my mom's apron, she taught me about quality ingredients, the importance of farm-raised chicken eggs and fresh-churned butter. We re-invented humble, old-school recipes passed on by my great-grandmother, infusing sophistication into our baking with fresh, seasonal produce my grandfather bought at local farms. Setting trends long before this practice was trendy.

Meet Brian, aka 'Icing Troll', partner to Confection Witch. He is a country boy at heart and his culinary thought will always have that foundation. The au courant term "farm-to-table" was more than an expression, but rather a reality for Brian growing up in a small, rural town. He went crappie and bass fishing with his dad and his family ate what they raised, from chickens and rabbits to picking fruit from trees grown in the backyard. Brian's artistic ethic is a tribute to the timeless recipes he prepared with his mom and grandmother, MeMe, and the traditions of small town living: Starting with fresh, seasonal ingredients and making everything from scratch.

When we think about the recipes we have learned, we're inspired to re-create them on our own. Bridging the generations, old and new, we are carrying on our family's traditions, but with our own flavors and signature, artistic flair. We believe in creating confections that taste as good as they look because delicious confections start with with delicious ingredients. We're inspired to honor our family's legacies, sourcing ingredients from local and sustainable farms.


How does one describe the outcome? "It must be witchcraft" said my dear friend.
