In November, 2018, owner Tracy Woodard opened the doors to our new brick and mortar location at 16 Joyce Street in Warren, RI. The Perfect Sweet became The Perfect Sweet Shoppe. While we still specialize in macarons, this has afforded us the opportunity to offer so many other products that I love to bake, as well as, begin to produce confections from my developing WANT Chocolate line; a line of rustic chocolates and caramels that I have been working on for the past couple of years, a combination that is a natural addition to my “sweet life” of making macarons and cakes and cookies and brownies and cupcakes and... Our little Sweet Bakery provides a welcoming atmosphere serving locally roasted and AMAZING Borealis Coffee which can be sweetened with our own line of Perfect Sweeteners natural flavorings, as well as, other locally sourced drinks, including Yacht Club Soda and Granny Squibbs Iced Tea. We make our own European Style Drinking Chocolate (hot chocolate that is made from actual melted chocolate) mixed with sugar and milk...simple, rich, delicious... in the colder months and have fresh squeezed lemonade and iced tea for the warmer months... we even have free wi-fi for those of you just wanting a change of atmosphere for a little while! Currently, our bakery is open 4 days a week (Wednesday to Saturday), allowing for the opportunity to bake the rest of the days, as we do lots of wholesale, special orders, and catering, as well! We are so happy to have come from the amazing home of Hope & Main and be able to stay in the up and coming, warm and welcoming town of Warren.
I love color. I love sweets. I love texture. I also love details and I love a challenge. When I discovered macarons for the first time, they combined all of these things. They were "the Perfect Sweet," if you will. I confess I've never even been to France. I discovered these amazing little treats while traveling the good ole' US of A with my husband, and I decided that I needed to figure out how to make them. They were nowhere to be found near me; and while I could order them online, the cost was prohibitive. I was on a mission to figure out how to make them and how to make them right. I learned quickly that there's a reason these delicious little treats have a reputation for being, how shall I say...difficult... The irony was that the very first batch I ever made turned out absolutely perfectly! They were pink, with a smooth crisp outer shell, perfectly raised feet, with a soft chewy center. I couldn't have been happier and I remember thinking, "what's the fuss all about?" And, then I tried my second batch. Needless to say, it was 100 batches later before I became confident that I could make a batch that I would be comfortable putting my name on; and I'm not exaggerating! I am obsessed with these perfect little sweets and there's nothing I love more than coming up with different combinations of flavor and color. They are not only a perfect little dessert treat, but they can serve as a centerpiece or accent or favor, as well! They make a great little gift! The possibilities are endless and I'm so proud to be able to share them!
Meet Owner Tracy Woodard
FOR THE SWEETEST MOMENTS IN LIFE
A macaron is more than just a perfectly textured, yummy dessert. They can be turned into a centerpiece to adorn a dessert table or served in several different combinations to stand alone! Any color combination can be achieved; perfect for all occasions! They can be made to match the wedding party, the gender of the baby on the way, to show team spirit, a child's favorite colors; gold for a 50th, silver for a 25th...the possibilities are endless!,
Nature gave us chocolate; the French gave us the Macaron. The combination of the two gives us supreme satisfaction.
