Our Story

Our logo is an animated drawing of Cristina.

The 3 cupcakes & 21 polkadots on her apron pay tribute to Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)

Our Unique Cupcakery was created for my daughter Cristina and other individuals with Down syndrome.

Cristina’s Tortina Shop creates equal employment opportunities for people with Down syndrome.

As a team, we are advocates for recognizing and supporting the abilities of these individuals.

Cristina’s Tortina Shop will “Showcase their Capabilities” to customers who visit the shop and enjoy beautifully prepared and always delicious desserts.

CTS employees will also develop a sense of accomplishment and confidence in their own learned abilities to make unique cupcakes, specialty cakes, cookies and other treats as they share their skills with customers and develop a sense of leadership and camaraderie as a member of the cupcake team and society.
