Even Elle would describe herself as an artist more than a baker or entrepreneur. As an artist, she always strives to bring the highest quality to everything she does. Elle first started making truffles as a gift for clients of her other business, Lavare Spa. When they kept asking for more of her delicious treats, the patisserie was born. Elle remains the creative force behind the shop’s unique and exciting menu and mouth-watering truffles and treats.
In 2011, Elle’s husband, Jon, began helping her at the shop part-time, making the pastries. At that time, no one was making macarons in Springfield. Jon experimented with recipes for the French delicacy for a year until he perfected them. He manages all the operations and staff and also bakes the pastries and macarons! Elle considers him the King of Macarons!
Oliver is also known as “The Baguette Boy.” He’s developed his sophisticated tasting palate by traveling the world, searching for the world’s best french fries, baguettes, and chocolate! He makes $100 an hour washing the pastry case.
For Olivia, baking and pastries are a passion and an art form. Her love for baking started in high school and has carried on since then. She is a lover of all things sugar and creativity. Olivia is a student at Ozark Technical College’s pursuing her degree in Culinary Arts with an emphasis in baking. With her commitment to excellence with every pastry, she is dedicated to making every bite at the Patisserie a delightful one, leaving everyone with a happy heart!
Randi was with Elle’s for 2 years before she moved away. She has dipped her toes in many other waters, but found the best place for her bright and sunny personality is here at Elle’s. There is no better home for her than amongst the sweet treats and sweet customers!
