CROATIAN CONFECTIONS

Croation Desserts
Croatian Confections creates home-baked goods with a focus on traditional Croatian recipes. Most of the ingredients are organic and sourced from local farmers, especially eggs and fruit in season. Vesna started baking with her nona-grandma and mama as a child in Croatia and now tries to share her knowledge with her kids and give the community a little taste of her homeland. She loves to bake, share recipes, meet people at the Down to Earth Markets, and hear feedback from customers. She changed a few traditional recipes to vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free. They taste even more delicious. She is now offering pick-up, local delivery, and shipping when you need dessert for special occasions like a bridal shower party, birthday cupcakes or cakes, or goodie bags.
