Hello Everyone!

Patrice's Cakes and Confections is still hanging around!  Lots of changes but still making great desserts and sweet treats to order!  I am no longer at the Farmer's Market and have been mostly on Facebook.

As time permits, I will make every effort to update my blog and highlight some of my baking activity!

Thank you to those who have taken time to view this blog!

Blessings,

Patrice

PATRICE'S CAKES AND CONFECTIONS 
HAS NOT LEFT YOU!!!

First off, I apologize to all of the faithful bloggers who have viewed my pages and wondered

"Where did she go?"

Not to worry!  It has been a slow summer and I've been taking time to decide how to grow up...well, grow up Patrice's Cakes and Confections!

I am on Facebook and have a small, yet growing following.  However, I will continue with the blog site and hope to post more pictures with detailed stories of events past and to come.

The BIG announcement is that I have secured a spot in our local Farmers' Market community and will have a weekly appearance at the 

FOLSOM FARMERS' MARKET AT THE 
HISTORIC FOLSOM PLAZA ON SUTTER STREET!  

The date is fairly certain and set for Saturday, November 16th from 8 a.m to 1 p.m.
RAIN OR SHINE
Now, won't that be a hoot!

Well, this has been short and, of course, sweet; however, I must find rest as it is already "today".

Look at a few cool events on Facebook and keep an eye on this blog...I WILL BE BACK.

AND....STAY SWEET!
