  • Meet Bonbon Lakay Charity Partner: Anseye Pou Ayiti

    At Bonbon Lakay we strive to always sell products from companies that have an instant positive impact in their local Haitian communities. By launching with Haiti based brands with Askanya Chocolate and Singing Rooster we were able to start achieving that goal from day one. In cases where we don’t work with suppliers that are based in Haiti, a portion of profits from such products are donated to our charity partner, Anseye Pou Ayiti. 

  • What is Langue de Boeuf? Is There Beef in It?

    For one, it is one of the most asked about items on the site. This buttery, flaky bliss of goodness of a pastry is named after a cow’s tongue. It’s a thin layer of dough, with one side covered in melted candied sugar and the other side in sugar crystals. Once the buttery dough bakes into a bubbly spotted pattern it resembles a cow’s tongue. 

    Growing up in Haiti any day that I got to eat langue de beouf was a great day!

  • Bonbon Lakay December Featured Product: Decadent Dous Makos

    The holy grail of Haitian sweets, dous makos, pronounced "doos - mackauhs" is a vanilla milk fudge. The recipe is said to have been created in the 1930s by Belgian Entrepreneur Fernand Macos, who set up shop in Petit-Gôave, Haiti. Since 1939, the dous makos recipe has been adopted by various sellers and families. One family that has also long been associated with dous makos is LaBarre.  Fernand LaBarre née Norélia Jérôme started working for Mrs. Macos in 1930s to make and sell the product. It's been said that she had her own recipe prior to working with the Macos family, and started making this delicious fudge at the age of 15.    
  • The Story Behind Our Haitian Rhum Cakes, Baked with Love

    With every cake made, someone always without fail suggested I open a bakery, or take cake orders. And I would take an order here and there, but never pursued baking as a profession, and never saw my cakes as a viable business. Not because I didn’t believe in myself or my cakes, but because they were always such a labor of love. If I take the time to bake you a cake, it’s because I love you. You’re special to me so I am offering you something that is special to me. I could never start selling my love.  By Father's Day 2019 you will be able to buy our Haitian rhum cake here on our website.
