Stylish Meets Delicious
White Tulip Gourmet is a family owned and operated bakery specializing in small batch production of all thing’s pastry art. It’s our goal to make your visit with us enjoyable and exciting every time you come in.
New offerings are made daily, fresh and always made in house with the best ingredients. But most of all each pastry is made with love! We don’t just want our deserts to taste amazing, we want them to look amazing too.
Vilayphone (Tracey) Bross founded this business as a true passion project. In the beginning White Tulip Gourmet was a “pop-up bakery” providing specialty desserts centered around and packaged to fit the theme of the month.
With the pop-up bakery being a huge success, the next logical step was to open a store front. We found a great little place in Merial Spring, North Carolina that we now call come to White Tulip Gourmet. It’s our goal to build on the work Tracey has been doing by continuing to produce creative desserts, fresh coffee, and the best Macrons this side of New York!
We hope to see you soon!
MEET THE TEAM
Meet Vilayphone (Tracey) Bross: Pastry Chef/Owner
Hi I’m the baker! I have been creating desserts for over 25 years and it’s what I truly love doing. I got my start by graduating from Johnson &Whales University with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. Throughout my career I have work for some of the county’s top resorts as a pastry chef such as;
The Fountain bleu Hotel in Miami, FL.
The Peabody Hotel in Orlando, FL.
The Gaylord Palms in Dallas, TX.
All these places have allowed me the opportunity to dial in my craft and push the limits of what can be done in the field of pastry art.
Fast forward to today and here I am. I’m an entrepreneur and owner of my very own bakery!
More importantly, I’m also a proud mom of 2 crazy rambunctious boys and wife to a very supportive Husband of more than 20 years.
As the lady boss of White Tulip Gourmet, my vision is to provide our incredible customers with excellent pastries, desserts and coffee in an art inspired environment.
See you at the café and let’s make every day delicious!
