Up and Running

Big step for me! I've been doing wedding cakes and small gigs on the side for a few years, but mostly for my friends or friends of friends. I've been meaning to launch a business, pick a name, and create a website but for so long the perfect name was hiding from me. After a quickfire brainstorming session relegated to the inner recesses of my brain, I found something I was very very excited about. I checked the domain registry to see if was available, check! I just had to confirm the grammar and spelling, and that the translation was accurate, check!

I now present Belles Bouchées! That translates as beautiful bites (pronounced 'bell boo-shay'), and while my french friend told me it's not an actual expression, he reassured me that it does make sense! I was drawn to the name because I am driven to make food that is not only beautiful to the eye, but to all the senses. Eating is about so many things; the way it looks, tastes, nourishes you and the community. It's about cultural and religious perspective and enjoyment too. Please, pass on the site to friends who might be getting married, or want a dessert buffet at their next art opening or cocktail hour. Thanks for your support! Bon Appétit!!


  1. YEHEHEHEH BELLE BOUCHHEYS! it must be italian, right? cause it sounds just like gucci! (just preparing you for the inevitable when your extremely successful business opens up a branch in Nashville) but in all seriousness, I love the name AND the fact that you finally took the plunge!

  2. Wow I just found your blog and am so excited I did! Congrats on the new business too!
