Anna Alvarez's Profile

About

I am a pie specialist, cake decorator, sugar artist, misfit, lover of hats and sparkly stuff, and most importantly I am Mamma to a very preccocious and precious little girl. I ditched the corporate office cubicle life in June of 2011 to pursue the culinary dream I had since possibly before birth - to make my art (food) into my career.

I cook out of a commercial kitchen that I rent from a local church that is very involved in the local community (they house the local food pantry, which is available to anyone regardless of belief system or lack thereof). The kitchen is an amazing place, built in the 1940s - I find the most interesting stuff in the drawers at times. It is such a welcoming place to me, and to know that my business supports those in need in an indirect manner means a lot to me personally.
