A COCKTAIL WITH TANNAH FROM SWEET TREATS BY TANNAH
What is your drink of choice?
I love a sweet cocktail on special occasions but mostly you’ll find me drinking lots of water.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi! My name is Tannah and I’m 21 years old. I am a qualified pastry chef working full time while also having a lot of fun with my side hustle – Sweet Treats by Tannah. I’ve always loved baking, it started out as a kid when I would bake with my Mum and Grandparents, then as I grew older and reached high school I began baking a lot more and came across Macarons. After that I was hooked and I knew that I wanted to be a Pastry Chef once I finished school. After graduating in 2016 I went on to finish my studies in Patisserie as a full time apprentice. I completed my apprenticeship in mid 2019 and have continued to work full time in pastry since then. In my spare time I still enjoy baking at home but have found a love for working with chocolate – from making truffles and bonbons to making decorations and sculptures with it.
Tell us about Sweet Treats by Tannah and how it came to be?
I created Sweet Treats by Tannah as a way for everyone to enjoy my handmade chocolates. Currently, I create a new box of chocolates with 3 brand new flavours every month and am working on expanding my product line too. My chocolates are all hand-painted like pieces of edible art and are filled with delicious flavours like lemon meringue and apple pie.
Sweet Treats by Tannah was something I had been thinking about starting for a while but I never really felt like it was the right time. It wasn’t until earlier this year after being off work for months from an injury that I finally decided to jump in head first and give it a go. My first box was for Easter and after it was a huge success I knew I was on the right path. I have loved the journey this far and I can’t wait to see where this all goes in the future!
