We had the good fortune of connecting with Patricia DAlessandro and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Patricia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I’ve always loved Candles. So not only did I want to start creating candles for my own personal use, but wanted to create The best candle with no harmful chemicals. All Pattycakes Candle Co. are made with 100% soy wax and phthalate free free fragrances. Once my friends and family got their hands on my candles they want their own which was what led to the creation of my business.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Growing up as an actress I’ve always had an artistic side to myself. So when I started making candles a few years back it was a surprise that I had a major interest in creating some thing. Now it took a lot of work, there was much more research that was needed than I anticipated. I tried and failed when it came to finding the perfect wax and wick and it didn’t always go my way. I had to find out what worked and what temperatures we’re best. After a lot of trial and error, my candles were created and Pattycakes Candle Co. company became a business. I’m so very proud of it and proud of the product I bring into homes every single day!

Pattycakes Candle Co.’s sumptuous, scrumptious scents, sow burn, and lingering fragrances will immediately warm up your space- in more ways than one. All candles are made from soy wax, phthalate free fragrances, and lead free cotton wicks. But a candle is more than the sum of its parts, it’s the joy and nostalgia evoked by recalling the smells of our past. Whether those are freshly baked banana bread out of the oven or gentle sweetness of cranberries in the kitchen, these candles can take you and your house hold back in time or help your forge new, pungent memories worth cherishing.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If a friend was visiting in town, I would start the day off with a nice hike on one of the Simi Valley trails. Enjoy a nice in n out burger. Do a little shopping or beer tasting at Pedals and Pints. Finish the night for dinner and drinks at Westlake Mastros. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Huge shout out to my Fiancé, Brandon. He’s been there from the beginning when creating candles was just a little thought up idea. He’s let our tiny apartment be taken over by all things wax and scents. So thankful for the love and encouragement every step of the way.
