Mariel Balderas
San Jose, CA


In this sunny California city, I bake, write, teach and love.
My name is Mariel and I love dessert. To bake is to breathe! I am a trained pastry chef and I have worked in restaurants and bakeries in the Bay Area, bearing my soul, sweating, bleeding, loving, creating and slowly gaining culinary themed tattoos for about 7 years. Here, you will eat dessert and end your evening with something perfectly sweet.
