You’ve probably seen those scrumptious sweets we’ve posted over the last few months: A butter-cream (and bronze) mummy here, a delicious chocolate-dipped dinosaur there . . . well, there’s a story behind those geeky goodies, and it starts right here at HMNS.

One of our membership staff, Jillian Villa, runs a successful pastry business when she’s not making sure the Museum experience runs smoothly for our members. Jillian & Co., which Villa runs with her mother, specializes in custom confections for a variety of events — from baby showers to paleo parties.

We can say from experience that the Villas’ creations are as delicious as they are attractive — something of a feat in the field of impeccable-looking sweet stuff.
