Tell readers about your Konfection Konnection and when did you start it?
Konfection Konnection started when I was back home in a little town called Jeanerette, Louisiana. I’ve been baking since I was young, something that has been passed down three generations. I got the name from my oldest brother initials, we called him KK and that’s how Konfection Konnection got its name. Konfection Konnection for its unique Louisiana southern style baking and a little twist in each sweet that we serve, from the cupcakes to the pretzel rods. I love trying new flavors and decorations when it comes to baking and I’m always looking for something different.
