Chocolat Céleste and Buttercream say "I do!"
We were more than a little sad when Chocolat Celeste owner Mary Leonard announced last year that her famed chocolate shop was closing. But Leonard was undeterred by the havoc the Central Corridor light rail construction caused to her firm, and was determined to reopen the shop elsewhere. As avid Twitter followers of the St. Paul confectionery shop (@ChocolatCeleste) learned yesterday, Leonard is teaming up with another big-name sweets shop to continue to bring their decadent truffles to the Twin Cities' market.
As Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's bridal blog first reported yesterday, notable cake bakery Buttercream will offer Chocolat Celeste's various chocolates every Saturday in their Deephaven shop.
Got a message, say it with chocolate.
Chocolatier Mary Leonard explains how she bounced back from adversity.

As Leonard explained to Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's blog, "[MSNBC] found me based upon the fact that I took time off from the business and then opened again, with more limited hours," she says. "They wanted to talk to me about how it affected me personally and how I rethought the business. It was an intentional sabbatical."
