Temmerman Confiserie: A Century of Sweet Traditions


Since 1904, Temmerman Confiserie has been a beloved sweet shop in Ghent, founded by Bertha Moffaert and her husband, specializing in classic gingerbread and candies. Today, the 5th generation of the Temmerman family continues the legacy of quality and passion for sweets, expanding the business to multiple locations in Belgium and abroad.

At Temmerman Confiserie, we pride ourselves on using only the finest ingredients and traditional recipes passed down for over four generations. Our famous Ghent Cuberdons are made in the shape of masks, with an ingenious design that maximizes sugar coating. We also offer over 140 different types of sweets, each made with gum arabic from the arcadia tree instead of gelatin.

In addition to our sweets, we produce a small but refined range of pralines and other chocolate treats. Our classic gingerbread is still made with real honey according to the original recipe from 1904, while our selection of sixty high-quality loose teas provides the perfect complement to our confectionery.

Our wide variety of products makes it easy to create the perfect gift package, from our Smuggling Boxes and Spiced Gingerbread to our Candy Towers.

Each of our offerings is not only a delicious gift, but also a beautiful addition to any festive table.

Experience the Temmerman tradition and indulge in our quality sweets at any of our locations in Belgium and abroad.
