Meet the Team

Cupcake Sweeties Business Owner - Christina Hall

Christina Hall

Food (particularly sweet food!) has always been a passion of mine – both cooking and eating! But it has only been since leaving my job in IT to raise our young family that I realised I could turn my love of baking into a fun, creative and exciting cupcake adventure. Cupcake Sweeties was launched in time for Mothers Day 2009, and we opened our studio at 221 Waiwhetu Road in Fairfield in late 2012.

Likes: Mountain biking, Pinot Noir & Dumplings

Dislikes: Being unorganised

Cupcake Sweeties Baker - Louisa Pescini

Louisa Pescini

I came along at the end of 2017, and have been annoying the team as much as possible since then. Before coming to Cupcake Sweeties I did two years in one of the countries busiest bakeries. Most of my life these days is spent baking, writing the newsletter and making sure our Facebook is up to date.

Likes: Animals, putting things out of Katy's reach and annoying Tamiya

Dislikes: Lettuce and seafood
