After studying fashion merchandising at Baylor University in Texas, Candace left the United States to work in Singapore's lucrative fashion industry. At the start, it was thrilling, she was doing exactly what she'd set out to do but slowly Candace became unfulfilled. She began to open up to her family about her desires to do something more, something she was really passionate about. She always had a love of food and cooking, but it took a photograph of pastries (taken during her mother's trip to Spain) to set her creative juices flowing. She'd never seen such beautiful desserts. At that moment, Candace knew exactly what she wanted to do. She wanted to bring that style of baking and dessert experience to Texas.

So she packed up her belongings in Singapore to move back home with her family in Hong Kong. She sought out a French pastry chef, and for months she learned as much as she could, honing the art of not only fine baking but creative aesthetic. Why a French pastry chef? Well, the French experience food with all senses, particularly with the eyes. Food must be as beautiful as it is pleasing to the palate. Achieving that was Candace's goal.
Today, Candace owns and operates Dolce Delights, a contemporary patisserie in Houston's Midtown neighborhood. The space compliments the style of dessert Candace creates - minimal & stylish. She uses only the finest ingredients, sweetening the cake with 100% fruit purees. There is the French influence in her white chocolate mousse, and there is the Asian influence in her dome cakes, paired with a cold glass of Yuzu Matcha tea, straight from Japan. So many worldly food cultures culminating in one spot, in Houston, Texas.
