Hi, I’m Candice Rodriguez-Laboy.

I’m the owner of Candid Confections, but first, I’m a mom to 3 fun-loving, beautiful children and a spunky English Bulldog, and I’m a wife to my awesome husband. In addition to being mom 24/7 and juggling sports between my kids, I’m a full-time high school educator.

I’ve been a lifelong fan of art and food. When I was young, I aspired to be an interior designer and architect, always crafting, designing, and drawing any chance that I could. At the same time, I loved food. I vividly remember impatiently watching my family create foods from scratch, counting the seconds until I was able to take a bite. My love for art and food finally merged into a single dream when I took a cake decorating class and realized I could apply both. After developing a sensitivity to gluten, I learned to experiment with recipes so that I can still enjoy textures and great tastes while eating gluten free. This combination led to the founding of Dulce by Candi in 2012, which is now Candid Confections.

Candid Confections is a creative outlet that I dedicate my free time to. In addition to offering cakes, desserts, and dessert tables, I’m blogging with the hope of encouraging open dialogue too. I plan to share my personal experiences with health, well-being, and family to inspire other families. Welcome, and thanks for joining me on this sweet journey.


These are the values that drive what I do.


True to my name, I’m open and honest about who I am and how I do things.

Custom Design

Design is essential to my process, so that I can personalize events and desserts to create an experience that matches the memorable moment you’re celebrating.


I strive to perfect my craft. I’m always exploring new ways of being creative and improving my art, design, flavors, and service.


I’m committed to fresh, premium certified organic ingredients to satisfy your sweet tooth without GMOs, chemicals, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and pesticides.


I keep things simple, because unnecessary complications never got anyone anywhere.


Wellbeing brings happiness. This is why everything that I do nurtures wellbeing, helping people celebrate moments with loved ones while supporting health-conscious living.



I’d love to hear from you!
