Meet Elyssa Fournier

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elyssa Fournier.

Elyssa, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an baker.
I was an elementary school teacher from California who moved to New York City! I couldn’t find a job as a teacher, so I was working retail to pay the bills and was pretty miserable. I would bake when I came home from work to relax. A friend suggested cooking school and I looked into it and decided it was a great idea. I went to pastry school, and here I am 20 years later back in California baking!

We’d love to hear more about your work. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a baker! I love to bake and see people’s reactions when they eat my pastries! I bake to order and make all kinds of pastries, simple cookies to gourmet desserts! If my baked goods put a smile on your face, I am happy!

What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
Find something that you love and do it! I can bake all day long, and I’m happy!

Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you?
You can find me on Instagram and Facebook Mixedbakerycdm or at www.mixed-bakery.com
