Norman Love Confections has created a line of Signature Collection pastries as well as seasonal pastries that are now available in Norman Love Confections’ Southwest Florida Chocolate Salons. Fresh baked daily from scratch, the artisan pastries in the Signature Pastry Collection include Fruit Tart, Raspberry Dome, Tiramisu and Caramel Tower.
In addition, Norman Love Confections’ fall pastry collection includes Pecan Tart, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Milk Spiced Latte, Lemon-Hazelnut Verrine and Caramel Apple Bar. The fall pastries are available in salons only through the end of November when a new winter pastry collection will be offered.
