Top shop for gifts.

Announcement    Thank you for your business during this trying time. Like many of you, things may seem uncertain. Our family is no stranger to financial hardship, both being out of work during the 2008 recession. It is how I formed this very business, being out of work for over two years with 20 years of Business Administration experience.

Know that good things will come, there is light in tragedy . . . we just really have to try hard to find it. You just have to ride the roller coaster sometimes, to get there. We appreciate the support and well wishes.

Stay safe and continue to support the artists and crafts people of Etsy & elsewhere, as well as in your own community, instead of big business. It really is crucial to our collective survival.

The USPS is gong through major change and as a result, Mail is LATE. We as sellers, are still paying postage for Priority Mail 1-3 day delivery, but I’ve had customers never receive their order & a package that would take 1 day is showing a week to deliver. So please think of this when placing your order.

I have family & friends who work for the USPS, it is the cheapest way to mail a package and I won’t change using them as a shipper, because their leader decided to not give employees overtime to ensure all packages are delivered, as it has always been. If you didn’t know, the USPS delivers for Amazon on Sundays. They are extremely busy. If you want to pay more for other shippers, convo me & I’ll create a reserved listing for you.

In offering an alternative for people who wish to have an unmolded chocolate, I have added a “soft truffle” option. Please note that these truffles will be misshapen, as there is no hard outer coating to maintain the shape & cocoa powder will be everywhere in your package. So if this is a gift, if your recipient doesn’t mind a little mess when they open their box (and for a better taste), then pick it. If not, stick to the regular molded truffle.

We're taking custom orders. Order & pay for cake or party tray and get 20% off orders over $500.

We definitely like to create UNIQUE and creative baked goods, so if you are looking for those hard to shop for people, who love food . . . This is the place! Have an idea that you want me to make, ask. A customer requested a paleo brownie with a vegetable - broccoli was on hand. Pretty tasty. I’ve had many custom orders.

You can convo me for info. on large orders for weddings and special events.

Beginning August 1, 2018, no order will be refunded. Please remember that I have no control over heat that affects your item, in transit or arrival to your home. If you can't immediately receive a package, have it shipped to your work. Although chocolate is mostly stable in high heat, other items may dry out.

It's hotter, all over the country, through most of the year in many states. California being one of them, which is where your package originates. Trucks that haul packages, as well as local mail carrier vehicles, get over 100 degrees at times. The only time chocolate melted upon receipt is because the customer left the box on the porch, in the hot sun for hours. But if tires on a Phoenix plane tarmac can melt, so can your chocolate item.

If you wish to pay for next day delivery ($30+), I'm happy to do that. Just convo me.

About denisesdelectables

On Etsy since 2009

Never give up on your dreams!

I am an artist, fine art and wedding/event photographer, floral designer, beaded jewelry maker, stained glass mosaic artist and in 2009, I started an online bakery, featuring UNIQUE baked goods, cakes, fondant creations and edible favors. In 2012, I combined Wedding Photography, floral design, wedding jewelry and edible favors & cakes into Denise's Creations Weddings. In 2017, I rebranded those services & products into Carrera Bridal & have a shop dedicated to Unique wedding items - http://CarreraBridal.etsy.com

I also use the left side of my brain and have 30 yrs. of Business Administration experience and coupled with Bank Finance/Risk Management/Internal Auditing & Compliance experience. Prior to that, I was an H.R professional. When I had spare time, I did a great deal of volunteering for Santa Barbara, California nonprofits (an aspiration is to become an Art Therapist, thus combining my two loves - art and helping people).

I am truly grateful for the feedback on my art and crafts. It really makes my day to share places of the world, with someone who might not otherwise see these places. It's also great to hear others stories about travel and art, when I do art shows.

So NEVER give up! Having your own business is not always easy. If you have the determination to succeed (even if it's not immediate), you can never really fail. As in life, there is ebb and flow in business. Stay on course, use as much social media as you can, as your free marketing tool. Most importantly, don't get caught up in other's negativity over your work. Negativity expends much more energy than positivity.

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a refund?

As of August 1, 2018, no order will be refunded. Please remember that I have no control over heat that affects your item, in transit or arrival at your home. If you can't immediately receive a package, have it shipped to your work.

It's hotter all over the country, through most of the year in many states. California being one of them, which is where your package originates.

Trucks that haul packages across country, as well as local mail carrier vehicles get over 100 degrees at times and although chocolate is mostly stable in high heat, items may dry out. The only time chocolate melted upon receipt is because the customer left the box on the porch, in the hot sun for hours. If you wish to pay for next day delivery, I'm happy to do that.
