About this project

Cameca Bacchus first started Creations by Cameca in 2011 after years of working in the financial industry. She decided to follow her passion for baking, and started making custom cakes and desserts. However, as fun as custom cakes and desserts were, Cameca quickly realized that this was not a scalable business.

Additionally, balancing entrepreneurship and motherhood was becoming increasingly difficult. So much so, that Cameca decided to pour her heart and soul into perfecting a product that combined her love for sugar, creativity, and comfort, while not using artificial flavors or ingredients - and thus CBC Sweet Boutique was born!

Our goal is to be the premier maker of gourmet artisanal candy. We want to create exotically flavored caramels, gummy bears, lollipops, and fruit drops. We’re pouring all of our energy into perfecting these petite treats, which are a delicious experience, an edible circus of imagination and delight! Wouldn’t you just love a Salt & White Pepper Caramel, Citrus Thyme Lollipop, or Pomegranate Pear Fruit Drop packed with flavor, but not all the junk? Us too! Our biggest challenge is being able to realize the full potential of our products with the money we have.

And that is why we are reaching out to you - our supporters and backers. Currently, we are New York State-approved to produce our gourmet sweets at home. But we yearn to be bigger! Your contribution will help take production of our sweets from the Bacchus home to a commercial production kitchen, as well as providing resources for enhanced product development and marketing. Every dollar that you donate will bring us closer to our goal of providing you with yummy treats!

Who is Creations By Cameca
Cameca Bacchus
Founder

I’m Cameca Bacchus, a West Indian native, working Mom, and now entrepreneur! Growing up, I always love baking sweet treats. So in 2010, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City to study Pastry and Baking Arts. Upon graduating, I gravitated towards making customized cakes for special occasions.

However, after a few years of struggling to turn my cake venture into a sustainable business while having a young family to care for, it became apparent that I needed to adjust my business goals and directions.

So, I put pen to paper and thought about what I could create for the public that would tickle their palettes while not taking so much time away from my family. And the answer was easy - CANDY!

But not just any candy: our mission is to provide a candy line that is made with high-quality and all-natural ingredients, along with unique flavor components. Made with lots of love and none of the junk! Our goal is to launch a candy line with treats such as Salt & White Pepper Caramels, Green Tea Pomegranate Yummy Bears, and Lemon Thyme Lollipops!

This venture is a true labor of love, and your support is very much appreciated!
