In 2016, our founders Georgia and Gabriel set for a 2-year global travel in search for new experiences and adventure. From Brazil to London, Europe to the U.S, they were overwhelmed with inspiration of all things art, flavour and invention. Upon arriving home in Melbourne, their blank canvas for business flourished with colour – and The Confectionist was born.
Every aspect of The Confectionist has been designed and made by our founders, including the Face and Collection Tin artwork, the biscuit designs, and even the biscuit cutters. With ideas for new Collections flooding in daily, The Confectionist team are constantly working hard and creatively to grow the business to something unimaginable.
Our slogan, ‘Biscuits as you’ve never seen before,’ derives from our ability to stand out from the crowd where the level of detail in our royal-iced biscuits compliments the perfect balance between a photograph and biscuit form. Our Confectionist online-store embraces the idea of fabulous gifting, a twist on traditional tins of biscuits, ready-made and packaged to perfection. The best part is, once the collection has been devoured, the tin is cherished for then as a keepsake from you to them.
As for our Face Biscuits, they speak for themselves – don’t you think? We wanted to offer a product so incredibly unique, something so completely personalised, in the hope to change the way Australians choose to gift. We thought, how amazing would it feel to open your present and see your own face, as a life-sized biscuit? The reactions so far can be described as phenomenal.
There is a marvellous amount of passion within The Confectionist team and we are in absolute awe over how wonderfully flexible working with biscuits can be. There is no design too intricate or shape too odd, and we truly believe there can be a biscuit for every occasion.
