Meet Mariel



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.

OriginalCinn Desserts is my blog and my business venture. My love of teaching and training came from working in restaurants and training culinary students. I wanted to continue teaching people how to make delicious desserts outside the restaurant through my baking and dessert classes, teaching the home baker that scratch baking is simple and not “too hard”! I teach fun and basic recipes for incredible desserts as well as in-depth pastry technique workshops.I’d love for you to take a look at my class schedule page for my upcoming culinary events. You can also email me to set up a custom class, one on one or in a small group in your home.

I am available for professional recipe development, recipe testing, small event catering and culinary events.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me through my stories and recipes on OriginalCinn. This is what I love to do and have built my life around my passion for food and dessert.
