Whimsy Confections, a luxury artisan chocolate boutique was founded in 2016 by Chocolatier, Michele Ogden. Michele is an artist from Buffalo NY and graduated from SUNY Buffalo with a B.A in Media Studies. After graduating from college Michele worked in production at Black Entertainment Television and in Media Strategy at GLAAD in NYC.
Michele grew up baking with her grandma Ruthie during her summer visits to Atlanta and at home with her dad Mike. Her love for baking led her to open a dessert catering business in Washington DC, Posh Pastries. She competed on an episode of Cupcake Wars on The Food Network. After reading an article in Essence Magazine about a woman chocolatier in Chicago, Michele was inspired to enroll in E’cole Chocolat to become a chocolatier. She decided to follow her dreams and opened Whimsy Confections. Making beautiful hand painted works of art that taste amazing is Michele’s true passion in life! Whimsy is inspired by all things beautiful and whimsical and each curated flavor is crafted to take you on a magical journey!
