The gossip...

These are your grandmother’s sweets, but this is clearly not your grandmother. J.R. Brown, 32, daylights as a mortgage auditor, but by night he handcrafts many a southern woman’s dessert fantasy: bubbling fruit pies of apple, cherry and peach; thick chocolate and buttermilk fudges; and fluffy, triple-stack cakes of chocolate, German chocolate, carrot and red velvet.

When thinking of baking we often conjure up images of grandmama’s toiling away in the kitchen. But men have had their hand in the mix since Ancient Egypt and really took it to the next level during the height of the Roman Empire when there were 300 pastry chefs in Rome. So when we met J.R.

Cake was beautiful & delicious! Truly the Doralee Rhodes of all cakes... Cameron W.

Hey, just wanted to share a story with you about the good your "goods" do! My father passed away recently and my mom had not been able to take care of our big yard by herself, so our long time neighbor took it upon himself to step in and take my dad's place as yard man. Long story short, I wanted to return the favor and when I asked what I could do for he and his wife I was told to pay them in chocolate, so then I ordered a LB of fudge from you and it might as well have been a LB of gold! He not only said it was the best fudge he’d had, which didn’t go over well with his wife btw, lol, but that it was worth all the hard labour and sweat! I sent them the FD article you were featured in and he was very impressed and wished you the best and is sure you will be a success. Looks like I know what I’ll be ordering periodically from you to send to Grandbury! You got a good thing going here.

Peace and success, Chad
