WYANDOTTE — The confections and desserts shop Michele Bezue Confections is coming to downtown Wyandotte.

While an official grand opening celebration is being planned to coincide with the popular Wyandotte Street Art Fair, which runs from July 12 to 15, a soft opening is expected the weekend of June 30.

Bezue, who also owns Detroit Marshmallow Co., is excited to join the downtown Wyandotte community, a vibrant downtown that has a hard-working downtown development authority working behind it, she says.

Bezue Confections was originally on Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe Park, but Bezue believes that the busier downtown of Wyandotte will only help business. It will not only be a nice location for operations, but also a place from where she can branch out.

“When you make sweets, you really need walk-in traffic,” says Bezue. “We’re not a restaurant. Our new storefront in Wyandotte is an amazing location with tons of foot traffic and a really supportive downtown board.”

Bezue has a lot of plans for the confectionary. While there will be tables, it will be less of a cafe than it will be a retail storefront. She’ll sell both Bezue Confections and Detroit Marshmallow Co. products.

There will be an event space, open for birthdays, showers and other parties. Bezue also offers “dessert dinners,” several course meals of nothing but desserts and confections.

A kitchen is being built, and Bezue intends on offering classes on how to make confections and desserts, including her marshmallows and truffles.

Another big part of Bezue’s business is catering, which she’ll continue to offer.

“I was outside working on the storefront and people are already asking me about catering.”

Michele Bezue Confections is at 110 Sycamore St.
