Chez Moi is a specialty bakery which offers a variety of desserts not found in traditional bakeries. We offer outstanding flavors in our high-quality, made-from-scratch desserts which are mixed in small batches. While we are known for our rum cake, we are all about branching out into other unique desserts. You'll find these additions on our dessert truck.
We have been in business for the past 7 years in Durham, North Carolina. You are correct... we don't offer French desserts as rum cake, for example, didn't originate in France. We offer unique cake flavors and other desserts you don't find on a regular basis.
Restaurants, specialty food stores and other gourmet food establishments purchase Chez Moi products. We serve our retail customers locally by appointment, at our dessert truck, and by providing shipments throughout the U.S. by FedEx. We have shipped as far as Afghanistan!
How It All Started
My love for the French language gave me the name for my passion in baking. Chez [shey] Moi [mwa] means "my place". We are a home food processor under the State of NC's Dept of Agriculture...hence the name. :)
It all started on a cruise to the Grand Caymans. A cruise I wasn't scheduled to take until the last minute because a family member was unable to go. There was a rum-tasting onboard the ship and an excursion which included a visit to a local rum cake bakery. After bringing back a few bottles of rum and having always baked for family and friends, I decided to try a rum cake. It ended up being something spectacular! My passion for baking started early in life with YES, MY EZ BAKE OVEN! It's true! I would bake my Dad miniature pineapple layer cakes. IMAGINE THAT! My Mother baked every chance she had...her specialties were apple pies, peach cobbler and yeast rolls. MMmm! It seemed as if you could taste the love like it was an actual ingredient. I always wanted to help... not realizing that even then... I was preparing for my future.
