1998 - 2022

Beginning of Blondery

1998

Where it all began

I began baking for family for the holidays. I wasn't very good and they didn't hesitate to let me know.

2009

Started Pastry School

I attended Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island and studied Baking & Pastry arts and Food Service Entrepreneurship. My first class was chocolates and I loved itI!

2011

3 Month Internship in France

I attended Alain Ducasse's École Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie (ENSP) located in Yssingeaux, France. I learned more about French pastry and even won an award for "Most Improved". I took the train to Paris every weekend.

2012

3 month Internship in Yssingeaux, France

My first internship was in a small town called Yssingeaux, France. The experience taught me that it's important to be open-minded and work hard no matter what you're doing because there will always be a challenge ahead!

2013-2016

Bouchon Bakery, Frenc Landry, Per Se, Daniel, etc...

I started my career as a pastry chef, working in high profile restaurants such at Bouchon Bakery and Daniel. It was an incredible experience that I enjoyed greatly!

2016

Still make blondies for fun, but it's not bringing in much money.

I was 16 years old when I realized how much cupcakes could mean to me. They are a hobby that has helped create memories with family and friends, which is what makes baking special for me!

2017

The beginning of Blondery

I was so excited to open my website and see how many orders I would get in just 2 weeks. When the day of launching arrived, it felt like a dream come true as soon people started coming through with their money on purchase agreements!

2018

Legally formed business.

The business was formed with the help of a friend, and it has been doing well ever since. They sell blondies to family members more frequently than strangers because they know how good these treats are!

2019

Products at holiday markets

When I started getting proof of concept in 2019, it felt like a miracle. Strangers were buying products at holiday markets and my business was booming!

2020

Featured in NY Times, Forbes, Cosmopolitan, Bloomberg, and more.

By 2020, my work had been featured in the New York Times and Forbes. In addition to this success I have also achieved notable Cosmopolitan Magazine covers as well Bloomberg TV interviews which are all indications that things are going great for me right now!

2021

The beginning of Blondery

I didn't know what to expect when I moved in 2021, but it turned out that Peekskill was actually a great place. there are plenty of things happening here and the people are friendly!

2022

Opened first retail location

In 2022, I finally opened up my first retail location. It had been a long time coming and it felt so good to be able showcase what we do best on such an international scale!
