Owner and chocolatier Lesa Walker has over 25 years of pastry and baking experience. After leaving the family business she chose to follow her dream and enroll in the pasty/baking and chocolatier program at Schoolcraft College in Livonia Michigan. Once in the Chocolatier program, her passion was ignited. Chocolate became a way for her to express her artistic ability. While mastering the creation of beautiful, exotic chocolates she experimented with pairing eclectic flavors of fresh fruits, purees, spices, teas and other wonderful ingredients.
“I’m constantly thinking out of the box with different concepts, flavors and unique ideas that can be designed through the art of chocolatiering. My customers always come first. Their opinions and satisfaction are what makes me strive to produce such a quality product. When I have a happy customer it offers me self-gratification and makes me feel good inside. My model is, ‘Keeping it Positive.’ Inside every package of chocolates is an uplifting message. There is so much negativity in the world right now I just want to add that ‘Sweet Thought’ to your life. Sweet Thoughts is heretouch someones life one chocolate at a time.
My commitment is to mentor, train and educate young girls who want to pursue a career in chocolatiering. I will work alongside them and teach them what I know about the industry and about life as a whole and in return I want them to work hard, respect themselves and others and strive to be the best that they can be. Our children are our future and if we invest in them they will succeed.
