Hello readers and welcome to my blog! In fact, this is my first try at blogging so bear with me :).
My name is Christopher and I am a single dad to my wonderful 7 year old daughter. We have two dogs, Nevaeh and Luna. We live in eastern Iowa. Oh, and I’m a pastry chef.
You may ask yourself, what does a pastry chef do in Iowa? Thats a great question. Frankly, I’m still figuring that out myself. I went to culinary school and Pastry School, earning degrees from both. I have worked in and out of restaurants in the area since 2004. I did open my own bakery cafe here in 2012. After about two years, my ex wife and I decided to close it and to dissolve our marriage. Sad face. Totally kidding! We are okay. We focus on coparenting and raising our daughter as best we can. We even live 4 blocks away from one another.
Now to the blog, which is why you are here. Something i’ve noticed when looking for supplies in the pastry world, is that there aren’t a lot of fun, colorful sprinkle blends. There are a few on the market, but I was never able to find what I personally was looking for, so I decided to create them. Hence, Cupcakes Sprinkles & Confetti was born.
We offer a full line of sprinkles and blends, with plans to expand into other party supplies in the very near future. This whole company is me, one guy. I have almost 20 years in the food service industry in various roles and I have a large breadth of knowledge, that i want to share with you!
I have helped plan birthdays, weddings and everything in between. Im also a pretty great cook and baker, if i do say so myself.
Join me on this journey and let’s learn together!
