Hi, I’m Maria!

Welcome To My Happy Bakes, a place where I share all of my dessert recipes because baking is my happy place (hence the blog name). For as long as I can remember I’ve had an insatiable sweet tooth. One of my earliest memories is when I had my first bite of cheesecake at four years old. I grew up baking with my mom and as I got older I began experimenting in the kitchen on my own. This quickly turned into an obsession and I could not be separated from the kitchen so I decided to go to pastry school. In 2021 I graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education’s Pastry & Baking Arts program. This blog is a place for both novice and experienced bakers to create easy, delicious and indulgent from-scratch dessert recipes that they can be proud of!

You can also find me on Instagram, Pinterest, Tiktok and Youtube!
