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 their abilities.

“Showcasing Capabilities”  is what we do!  Customers who visit the shop and enjoy our, baked from scratch, beautifully prepared and always delicious cupcakes and cakes would agree.

Cristina’s employee develop a sense of accomplishment, confidence in their own learned abilities, as well as a sense of leadership and camaraderie as members of the cupcake team and society.
