3 copies of the 21st chromosome.
Our unique cupcakery was created by a dedicated Mom, Mary who was determined and passionate to change the narrative and stigma surrounding Down syndrome.
In 2003 when Cristina was just 3 months old Mary made "the promise", she took a leap of faith and never looked back.
Creating a place that Celebrates and Advocates for change while creating equal employment opportunities.
A place where the community gathers and connections are made.
Every cupcake, cake, or cookie sold is an opportunity to talk, teach and learn about Down syndrome.
Cristina’s employees develop a sense of accomplishment, and confidence in their own learned abilities, as well as a sense of
leadership and camaraderie as members of the cupcake team and society.
Our Customers would agree that our shop is the sweetest place on earth! Check it out for yourself.
