About Thyme After Thyme Gourmet


Thyme After Thyme Gourmet is my delicious little corner of the world. The place I go to when creativity strikes or when the need to escape from the worries of every day life become a bit too much to handle. It is also where I create not only delicious treats, but also memories. It is the culmination of 42 years of kitchen crafting, 34 of them as a professional. 

Hi! My name is Aimee and I am the owner of Thyme After Thyme Gourmet. I am also the chef, baker, candy maker, social media presence, web designer and the "whatever else needs to be done tornadic force" behind this little venture. I am a single mom, chef, food writer, virtual assistant and business owner. To say I wear a lot of hats in my day to day life is quite an understatement! 

Thyme After Thyme Gourmet came to be in the summer of 2006, after the birth of my youngest child. Having 3 children under 15 months made it nearly impossible to work outside of the home, so I dusted off some of my favorite recipes from my childhood and began to pursue candy making and baking as a means of survival. 15 years later, I am creating some of the most creative sweets the area has to offer, as well as many old-time favorites!

What our customers are saying

I always say these cake balls are made with l​ove because they taste like heaven! Thank you Aimee!

Paige J, Mason OH

She did cake balls for my "cookie table" at my wedding. It was full of all kinds of goodies... but her cake balls stole the show! I told her my wedding colors and she matched everything perfectly. I've also purchased a couple cupcakes for myself & my son. Big or small... she puts her all into each order! I will be back!

Hands down the best cake balls to be found in the Cinci/Dayton area. Aimee is unbelievably creative and has tailored her magnificent creations to suit whatever event I'm planning. Her cakes and cheesecakes are divine, too. Thanks so much for your constant attention to detail, amazing creativity and outstanding desserts!
