Treat Dreams, owned by Scott Moloney, and D’Vine Cookies, founded by Rebecca Abel, are combining forces to open Treat Dreams Dessert Emporium at 22965 Woodward Avenue, Ferndale. “We wanted this kind of over-the-top, amazing place to go for dessert…and we thought there was a real need for it,” Abel said. They plan to do a complete gut job on the existing 4,000-square-foot space, adding booths, a full gift shop, and party space. They are also bringing in a pastry chef and partnering with local vendors Rock City Eatery and Zingerman’s. But back to those over-the-top desserts, called “dream desserts.” There’s a hot chocolate goodie covered in toasted marshmallow cream, and five-pound ice cream sandwiches. Each month will have a new featured flavor as well. Since they are shooting for a March opening, the first flavor will be something green to go with St. Patrick’s Day.
