About Me:

I am Pamela Alexander and I originally come from East London and moved to Cornwall 15 years ago. I have a varied working background and spent many years as a post 16 tutor as well as working in the voluntary, public and private sector.

When I moved to Cornwall with my young family  work was difficult to come by in my chosen area. I then retrained with the help of my family and became a Chocolatier. In 2014 my oldest daughter and I started Sweet P Confectionery. I initially wanted to call this Chocolate Desires but as the persuasion of my daughter she felt Sweet P would be more appropriate! I honestly don’t know why! Anyhow it seemed right as my name is Pamela and is from the Greek meaning all sweetness and honey…. As she is a creative person she also with the help of her husband designed the logo and colour. This fits in with the overall image of the business and gives a lovely retro feeling.

 

How we started the business:

We started work from my registered kitchen at home. At first the only machine I had to temper chocolate was a small machine which makes 1 and a half pounds of chocolate at a time. So I made up a few products which I felt might sell and cap in hand (or in this case small basket in hand) I went to many different shops and outlets offering samples and wholesale chocolate to order. I was very fortunate in that a local business took me up on my skills. They ordered for their business and from there via word of mouth we began to build the business up. I remember a wholesale order of £20 had me jumping for joy!

In a small space of time we realised we could no longer produce from my kitchen and needed a professional space to manufacture. We came across the shop in the Arcade at Bude.  It felt this was a good starting point and created a workspace, office and retail shop all at the same time. We opened a handmade artisan chocolate shop in Bude, Cornwall in May 2016.

Shortly after this my daughter and her husband decided to branch off on their own adventures and I took the business on as a sole trader.
