“I'm a sugar-addict, kinda OCD and a frustrated artist.
It may sound so negative, kind of dangerous,
but to my family it's a magical combination
when I'm in the kitchen.”
What could be more rewarding than a bunch of amazing clients who continue to support me and my work; thank you for your kind words and lovely feedbacks!
How The Sweet Alley started
Christina grew up in a very artistic household, where good cooks, artists, and performers shared their passions with those around them. Luckily for her, she not only inherited her parent’s great culinary skills; but their knack for design as well.
She began baking when her daughter’s school required parents to get involved for volunteer hours and fundraising events. Christina was able to combine the two skills – baking and design – to contribute her share, meanwhile drawing crowds and attention to her work. However, as she focused her sights on fashion design, her baking was occasional. It was only until her eldest daughter gifted her with a collection of baking and decorating tools, that her interest and passion in pastry arts was fueled. She soon realized that this new field allowed her to spend more time with her family, as well as spend her time doing what she loves so she decided to leave the Corporate world.
It didn’t take her long to develop a menu of original and fresh flavors for her cupcakes and cakes – adding her own flare, as she took the elements of fashion that she had learned, and applied them to her edible designs. Starting off by showcasing her work at local markets, and now having a number of loyal clients, Christina’s passion has only grown and she craves to learn more. She is a self-taught baker, taking short distance courses to fulfill her desire to learn. However, she hopes to one day attend pastry school and reinforce the skills and talent that so many have already praised her for.
Christina wish to share her box of sweets with you one day through The Sweet Alley.
