Why did Colleen Campana start baking macarons? Simply put – she and her friends really enjoy eating them!
It didn’t take her long to discover that others enjoy them as much as she does. She responded to the demand by establishing Simply Sweet, her macaron bakery.
Colleen has always loved baking. Growing up in a family of three girls, she was always the creative one in the kitchen. Of course, she enjoys sweets – but that’s not why she bakes. Colleen bakes because she loves being able to express her creativity with food. Her favorite part, however, is seeing the happiness of others when they eat her baked goods.
Colleen first started baking macarons five years ago and focused on perfecting the taste and look during the last two years. It’s quite a science to making macarons, but her determination to get them right has paid off. Although she only officially launched Simply Sweet in 2017, people have been enjoying Colleen’s macarons for years. Her favorite comment to date about her delicious treats is, “They’re like fluffy clouds of goodness!”
