I caught up with Deborah Moore, owner of Forever Moore Sweets wrapping up her summer stretch at the Everett Farmers Market last Sunday and she kindly agreed to answer some questions about her sweet Everett business.

Since she was busy helping customers, we did the interview via e-mail.

How long have you been baking and what got you into it?
I have enjoyed baking as far back as I can remember. I love food, baked goods and trying out recipes. I like being something of a mad scientist in the kitchen.

When did you start Forever Moore Sweets and what prompted you to go into business?
Its one of those “when life gives you lemons” stories. Baking was always something I dreamed about but didn’t know how I could pull it off with a full time career. Well, the universe provided the lemons. While its not the way I would have wanted it to start, I couldn’t be happier or more proud of the path that led me to where I am today.

Is there one item more popular than others?
Since starting at the Everett Farmers Market, my macarons have been very popular. Customers have been placing macaron orders for gifts and parties. I’ve gotten some great feedback and some wonderful regular customers. I also have an online presence and there I would say that my cookie decorating kits and decorated cookies and cakes. I try to have fun with the cookie kits and add new shapes for people to decorate.

When will Hot Cocoa Bombs be available and what the heck are they?
HCBs are currently available now. I start offering them in September. They are hollow spheres of chocolate filled with hot cocoa and marshmallows. They are used to create deliciously decadent cups of hot chocolate by adding them to a mug and pouring hot milk or hot water over them. (I prefer hot milk.) HCBs come in a wide range of colors and popular flavors.

How was the Everett Farmers Market this year? Are there other places where you are a vendor?
The EFM is an awesome experience. I have really enjoyed meeting customers and other vendors. It does my heart good to see how people react to my baked goods and return for more. Seeing the smiles on their faces is very rewarding. Currently, EFM is the only market that I participate in because I also take custom orders online via my website and email.

Did the Pandemic present any particular challenges for you?
The pandemic allowed me the time to test new recipes and learn new baking techniques. People were trying to find ways to celebrate life events during challenging times. I enjoyed working with customers to help finds solutions such as individually wrapped cookies for drive-by baby showers. One of the other items that I offer is cookie decorating kits which are popular with kids and a great activity so they were a very popular item during the pandemic.

Do you do this alone or do you have help or employees?
As far as the baking, that is all me. My husband, Bob, has the arduous job of taste testing the products and he helps me set up for the farmers market.

What else would you like people to know about your business and how do they order?
I make more than just macarons. I also make cakes, cookies, decorated sugar cookies, cupcakes, cupcake bouquets and now I’m having fun making and offering gourmet marshmallows. To order, people can contact me through my website.

What is your turn-around time?
For custom cakes and decorated cookies, I would like to have at least 2 weeks notice for custom treats so that I can produce what the customer envisions.

Please add anything else you’d like the readers of to know.
It’s surreal some days to see where I am, and how far I have come. I am proud to be part of the small business community, but also proud that when things felt like they were unraveling I was able to not only keep going but follow my dream. Thank you for getting to know me, for supporting small business and big dreams!
