Wow! What an amazing month October has been! I know I'm late to the Halloween posts but better late than never. πŸ˜…

I made a bunch of new friends and had such a great time at the event Oct. 21st as well as the .witch.way.denton Samhain market right before Halloween!

Please swipe to the end to see the most artful cookie from .from.the.coven because it was absolutely delicious and made my spooky lovin' heart so happy! πŸ‘» On the way you'll see 's amazing bird costume and my Scarecrow self!

There was so much unbridled enthusiasm at both of these events that I'm so grateful to have gotten to join in and I'm looking forward to vending at future ones! In fact, Every Witch Way is having another market at Goldenboy Nov. 14th and you can bet I'll be there! I'll be bringing the new Apple Cinnamon Macarons and some mini Tarts. πŸ˜‹ Then the following Saturday Nov. 20th I'll be at Red's Yard hosted by .mosaic.market ! I'm hoping you'll come visit and treat yourself to something sweet! πŸ₯°

Thank you to everyone who makes these markets the best they can be and to the patrons who make it all worthwhile. It's going to be a lovely holiday season! ☺

Hey y'all! It seems like a good time to introduce myself again, especially since I've made some new friends!
I'm Alexandria Clifton, or informally Alex. I am the goofy baker girl slinging macarons, loaves and other pastries wherever I can and hoping to put a smile on your face. 😊

I was recently interviewed for an article on ShoutoutDFW so if you'd like to learn more details about me and my little bakery then please check out the link in my story! Otherwise, here goes!

I have always been a foodie and a lover of all things bread and pastry related; but more importantly, I'm intrigued by the process of making such things! My curiosity for recipes is never satiated!

I consume Great British Baking Show seasons for research, wishing I could taste every little thing and usually settle for writing it down to try later for a birthday or something fun! Prue Leith is a vision and role model for my work, along with Julia Child who inspired my shameless use of butter! But my biggest influence is French patisserie-style baking as macarons are my favorite thing to make. I only had my first macaron about 4 years ago; but after that I became captivated by them. After losing my job as a textile designer during the start of COVID, I set out on learning how to make macarons so I could start a baking business! Though they are fickle little cookies, they are the greatest challenge I have ever taken on and I'm delighted by their rising feet each time I press my face to the oven glass. πŸ₯°

Starting Loafing Around Confections has been the best thing I've ever done for myself; as I'm passionate about every dessert and the local community I have been graciously accepted into. It makes me so happy to make things for all of you and to finally get a use out of my vintage dishes and assorted fabric collections. πŸ˜… So thank you times a million for making my dream possible, taking time to visit me at markets and placing orders and customs with me. I absolutely love meeting you and baking for you!

Looking forward to treating you soon! -AlexπŸ’œ

Thank you to for hosting ! I had such a great time on Friday selling these spooky-themed macarons and listening to the wonderful array of musicians! They are still going tonight so make sure you check out the other vendors and catch some tunes before it's over! 🎢

Although I thought I'd be at Rubber Gloves again tonight, I sold out on Saturday 's annual Sidewalk Sale! I also got some super cute goodies while hanging out and drinking a lovely lavender latte from . Swipe to the end to see the gorgeous window seat that Anna and Luis kindly offered to me for tabling. I love it so much! 😍

I have brought back the Pumpkin Spice Macarons, for the season, that I absolutely loooved making into jack-o-lanterns; along with dressing up some of my usual flavors like Lavender with cats and moons. πŸŒ™ I'll be doing this until fall is over so get ahold of a hand-drawn macaron while you can!

You can catch me jammin' with hosted by on 10/21 with more goodies like these. Hope to see you soon! πŸŽƒ

πŸ’œ Fig MacaronsπŸ’œ

The lightly sweet, floral and tear-shaped fig fruit is most often eaten in the form of cookies; but their unique flavor truty shines as a preserve.

In these royal purple shells, a fig preserve blended buttercream surrounds a sweet dollop of even more preserves for a tangy surprise!

Fall is full of spices and lots of fruity harvest flavors; but sadly not enough fig! Why not add these sublime seasonal macarons to your favorites?

First Market of Fall down! I love Goldenboy markets so much because their coffee is unbeatable and the vibes are immaculate. 🌟 There were a lot of awesome vendors and visiting everyone's booths always makes me so proud to be a part of the local business community!

Today, I brought something different from my usual macarons to share with patrons as all of the macs from the past week went to orders and to Goldenboy's bakery case! 🧑
I featured some cutie patootie Pumpkin Spice Loaf minis shaped like acorns, leaves and pinecones as well as Apple Cinnamon Shortbread Bars. πŸ˜‹ If you stopped by today, I hope you loved them as much as I enjoy making them!

If you missed the macarons or want to try some other Fall themed treats; Lucky Kat's Corner and I will be tabling together at Armadillo Aleworks this Sunday 10/03. Kat will be selling her stickers and other amazing artwork, and we will have a collaboration surprise as well!

Oh my GOURD, it's FALL! πŸŽƒπŸ It's my favorite time of year; so to celebrate I'll be selling seasonal treats plus some of my usual treats at a bunch of markets starting this Sunday and all through October!

Also, I am SUPER excited to share that the Loafing Around menu has been updated and now you can find it on my brand new website linked in the bio! Swipe right for screenshots of the landing page and menu. I made the menu extra cute just for all of you!

Happy Pride Month! 🌈
These Pan flag-themed cookies are inspired by my wonderfully artistic bestie who taste tests all my recipes before I put them out into the universe. She encourages me to push past my comfort zone and gives the most honest feedback.πŸ‘Œ She absolutely adores these petit fours and I absolutely adore her! πŸ’–πŸ’›πŸ’™

The seven layers include a sweet almond sponge cake, tart raspberry jam and a tempered dark chocolate all compacted into such a unique combination of flavors! They are originally an Italian-American creation and taste great with espresso. The colors are often modified for different celebrations and I'd like to extend that idea to you all as well!Β

🍦Vanilla Bean Macarons!🍦

The flavorsome fruit of a beautiful orchid flower; vanilla bean is a smoky contrast to all kinds of dreamy and creamy desserts. It's a simple yet classic flavor that makes an appearance on nearly every menu and it's time it made it to mine! 🀍

These sweeties are reminiscent of the smoothest churn of ice cream without the melted mess and not a sticky elbow in sight.

🌻 Happy Mother's Day! 🌻

After a lovely day spent with the woman who encouraged me to follow my dream of opening my own business; I'm taking a moment to celebrate my momma!

She taught me to love each ingredient I use, how to make our favorite dishes the centerpiece of the table and inspires sophistication in vibrant details and vintage dishes. My mom brings warmth to every table, with care and consideration richer than any chocolate and has exquisitely implemented that into my family's lives. I immensely appreciate everything she has done to help me achieve this passion. I couldn't do it without her.

πŸ‹ Lemon Pound Cake πŸ‹

Known as the mother of all butter cakes, these traditionally elegant desserts are named for their use of one pound of each base ingredient. This creates the most luscious melt-in-your-mouth texture that is nothing short of a divine experience. 😍

To all lemon lovers; let it be known that this is made with fresh lemons for the utmost tangy palate. The glaze is lightly sweet, zingy and garnished with a fine sprinkle of zest and sliced lemons for that pop of sunshine yellow! πŸ’›

Did you know chocolate ganache was created by accident?! I am VERY grateful to the French Chocolatier's apprentice that made this mistake for us! It was a treat in the 19th century and it's definitely a treat now! πŸ˜‹

If you're looking for a simply scrumptious dessert to share or self-indulge; this rich, creamy ganache snuggled into my signature buttery shortcrust and topped with crispy almond slivers will do the trick!

Denton Art and Performance Collab has been very active and successful all over Denton for the past six months! We would like to take a moment to introduce our team. Our team was formed through the connections we've made within the Denton community. Coming together with the common goal to connect and grow our community through art and music.

DAPC was born when local artisian, Ali Oop, took the leap to start planning events, but she needed some help to make it happen. Bringing on local musician, Bret Crow, and local baker, Alex Clifton, was just what DAPC needed to be successful.

Ali is the owner of Happy Handcrafts by Ali. As a young girl, Ali always enjoyed making friendship bracelets, doodling, writing short stories, and creating art while listening to music. She now specializes in candles, soaps, resin jewelry, and crystal jewelry and crafts. Ali started her crafting business mid pandemic when she was inspired by friends finding creative ways to make a living. Ali has always had a love for music and art, which is what brought her to Denton originally. After obtaining her AS in Business Administration and before she found her true calling in crafting and jewelry design, she performed with local bands The Wee-Beasties, The Vault, and Puddin Taine. Continually inspired by all the local talent, Ali has cultivated meaningful long lasting relationships throughout the Denton art and music community. "No other place has given me the opportunity to follow my dreams the way Denton has. This is where I want to raise my daughter, build and strengthen our community, and pour my love and energy into."

Bret Crow is a composer/bassist. Originally from Pearland, TX, he moved to Denton to get his BA in Music from UNT in 2005 and graduated in 2008. Since then he has been a consistent part of the Denton Music Scene, hosting various open mics in the area, leading and being a part in several successful Denton bands such as the highly energetic, entertaining, and very funky Puddin Taine, Daft Punk and Dance music tribute act Star Party, one time bassist for the infamous punk rock band The Wee Beasties, and his own solo act The Bret Crow Show, where he is a one man band that creates whole songs on the fly, improvised with a looper pedal, sings, beatboxes, harmonizes, and melodically solos on the bass. Helping out the community and giving other well known and up and coming performers a chance to express themselves in their own creative ways gives him the spark that inspires everyday to live a life full of creativity, love, and joy for the music and music scene that brings us all together. With over 24 years of experience in music, he brings a well manicured and professional presence to the group.

Alex started her baking business under the name Loafing Around Confections in 2020 after a few hardships inspired her to pursue a lifelong passion of culinary arts. She has always loved eating perfect little pastries and delicious buttery shortbreads; but became enamored with macarons after being introduced to them by sweet foodie friends! She set out to make them herself and started her cottage bakery; focusing on natural ingredients and custom flavors for all treat lovers who appreciate fresh ingredients and French patisserie-style desserts.
Alex received her BFA in Studio Art: Fibers at UNT in 2016 and fell in love with Denton in the process. She has always adored the local art and music scene so it's no wonder she had to stay and get involved! After meeting Ali and Bret while vending and later being asked to join DAPC; she knew she had met incredible people with a like-minded vision to curate and host events that allows Denton's local artists and performers to truly shine! Alex loves Denton and the amazing people in it and is immensely proud of being able to call this quirky town her home.
