It has been a long time since we posted, things have been so busy. Here is some of what we have been working on. To place a special order give us a call at 803-335-1440!

We apologize for any delays in getting back to those of you who have called and left voicemails the last week or so. Allergy season has reared its ugly head and I have lost my voice. It is just starting to come back. If you have called and not received a response, please email us at [email protected] as my voice is not good enough yet to return calls. Thank you for understanding!

We would like to thank our customers for their support during this holiday season and throughout the year.
We would also like to clarify an issue that we know you will be able to help us with. As you know, we closed our retail location in September of 2019 and are now a SPECIAL ORDERS ONLY BAKERY.
We schedule specific order pick up times because we have many customers picking up and we have many orders scheduled for delivery as well. It makes it difficult to keep our delivery schedule when our customers do not adhere to the time they chose to pick up.
We rely on our customers to pick up on time or call us, in advance, if they are unable to arrive on time just as they rely on us to be available at the time that was scheduled.
Thank you for understanding and have a great Holiday!

Home - Tea Inspired Life

During the COVID-19 restrictions The Confection Cottage adjusted to the temporary closure and social distancing requirements by closing the retail store and converted to special orders only with curbside pickup and delivery options. This new business venture brought exciting growth and developed into a full time business.
We have decided to continue as a special orders only business and have relocated to a private commercial kitchen, no longer requiring the retail store front. We will continue to accept orders by phone at 803-335-1440. A MINIMUM OF 48 HOURS IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ORDERS. Everything is made fresh to order, we do not have any premade items.
Please call us at 803-335-1440 to place your orders between the hours of 9am-4pm Monday-Saturday. If you reach our voicemail we are either on the phone with another customer or out making deliveries. PLEASE leave a message so we can return your call.
Our premium loose leaf teas and tea accessories are now available at our sister site, www.TeaInspiredLife.com. You can place an order on the website or call 803-508-2767 for more information.
Thank you to everyone for supporting our locally owned small businesses!

Hope everyone had a wonderful halloween and now it is time for Thanksgiving already! This year will be a bit different than previous years due to not being open for walkins. We will not be making any products to just have on hand for someone to walk in a pick up. That means that all orders MUST be called in ahead of time and a special order placed. We will then have certain hours the two days leading up to thanksgiving that are open for pick ups of orders. Call ASAP at 803-335-1440 to place your orders as we will book up fast!

The Confection Cottage is taking its’ very successful bakery and tea business virtual!
The Confection Cottage temporarily closed as required by the government on March 18, 2020. Our retail location remained closed to walk in customers for the next six months while we transitioned our business to a no-contact venue. We continued to accept special orders and deliver our delicious, fresh from scratch baked goods to our customers. After recognizing people are still unsure about going out and eating in restaurants, but are comfortable with curbside pickup, we made the decision to fully realize the transition of an on-line, special order, no-contact style of business.
To that end, The Confection Cottage “bakery” remains open and Chef Kirstie is accepting orders by phone at 803-335-1440 for local pickup and delivery, or on-line through our website www.theconfectioncottage.com (for shipping our cakes, pies, cheesecakes, teas and tea accessories across the U.S.).
Lady Kelly will soon begin offering her Tea Tasting Classes online and a Tea Of The Month Club. Making it possible for tea lovers to continue to enjoy a large selection of premium loose-leaf teas.

Teas and tea accessories will be available through http://www.theconfectioncottage.com website and her new website and tea blog, Tea Inspired Life.
Our websites will continue to evolve as we come to an even better understanding of how to serve our customers locally and throughout the U.S.

If I drive into the parking lot and honk the horn would you come out with rubber gloves on, pack my mouth with French Macaroons and let me pay you with my credit card online? It's Day Two of Benevolent Imprisonment. Not sure how much longer I'll last.
How can we see the individual photos that were taken at the recent Downton Abbey English Tea?
For the Downton abbey event do you sell Victoria sponge cake ?
Food service and desserts. Awesome place.

What is your soup today, please?
The Royal Tea was wonderful. Lady Kelly so informative and fun ! Best scones ever
The beautiful cake you made for my Mom's 96th birthday was delicious! Lemon cream........wonderful!
For 20 years I have been the "Soup Queen" in my husband's eyes. Until today when I brought home your insanely delicious roasted chicken and rice soup. I now have to share my crown with you! It made for a wonderful dinner. Thanks.
