Here’s an idea of the size of the shoe we’ll be decorating. It will be on a chocolate base, and you’ll decorate it and make it your own!

Decorate the most comfortable high heel you’ll ever own.

Kick up your heels and join us for this fun and delicious girls’ night out! We’ll be decorating these adorable chocolate high heel shoes with hands-on help from Elise Mac-Bello, owner of Saejar Sweets.

Our shoes will be on a chocolate base that we’ll also paint and decorate. All materials used on the shoes will be edible.

Elise, surrounded by her beautiful family.

Elise started her career in the non-profit world but knew that she, someday, wanted to start a family, and a business, creating beautiful chocolate delights. She picks up the story from here.

“Finally, in November of 2018, a door opened that would allow me to get the training I needed to make my passion a reality. My husband (Thomas) and children (Sadie and Jared–the “Sae” “Jar” of Saejar Sweets) have been my biggest cheerleaders, encouraging me to make a go of it and celebrating every ‘win’ in getting things off the ground.
