WAVELAND, Mississippi (WLOX) – At the Ground Zero Museum in Waveland, you can learn a bit of history with a dessert at the Sugar Pop Bakery.
It was opened by Renée Loranger. She recently won the Food Network Halloween Baking Championship. She took her earnings and opened the store about six weeks ago.
“It’s also on Coleman Avenue. I’m excited to be a part of the Coleman Avenue comeback,” said Loranger. “We are thrilled and hope other businesses will join us on Coleman Ave. “
Last year she finished second in the championship. This year, she concocted a wreath.
“Being on Food Network has always been a dream of mine, which in itself has been a big dream. I have wanted to do this since I became a pastry chef for others. I wanted to open mine and do my own thing. I’ve learned so much from so many chefs along the way, ”added Loranger.
In this particular case, Renee said it was a dream come true and a great way to start a business in the region.
“It’s a real dream.”
