Hi! I’m Mayra.
I was born in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua in Mexico and I currently live in Urbandale, IA. I graduated from UTEP in TX and ended up in super cold Iowa. It was a weather shock I tell you. After my first winter in here I was really to call it quits and go back to sunny TX, but I got married. Now I share my lovely home with my dear husband Matt and my adorable children Lillie, Noah and Viviana.
My love for creating sweet treats started early. Along with two friends, we owned a small confection business in Mexico. It gave me the opportunity to learn and create wonderful pieces made out of chocolate and traditional Mexican desserts such as Chocoflan and Tres Leches cakes.
I started baking and building my skills again after I decided to stay at home to raise my daughter. Now, baking is my passion! Cookies and Cakes, Cupcakes and Truffles… you name it. Having worked with chocolate many years ago gives me an advantage to create unique and detailed pieces of edible work. And it’s all for you!
Creating Cookies is becoming an obsession though….
I bake with high quality ingredients and everything is always fresh. I don’t like freezing my work.
The work I do may look simple, but it is very time consuming and a lot of dedication goes into each and everything I do. I work after my family goes to sleep! So I often look like a raccoon (with dark circles under my eyes), but I realize it’s all worth it when I see my client’s reaction when they see my creations.
Love and Passion for what I do are the secret ingredients to my baking. I can’t see myself doing anything else at the moment than being a wife, a mom and a grown up obsessed with creating sweet treats.
