About the Owner

Monique Harris has been baking and treat-making with her children since 2014. After teaching Sunday School for a few years, it was clear that she enjoys leading by example with compassion to serve and teach others. She recognized her calling to teach children through desserts when she was hired at an after-school program to transport children and lead the "Cafe" play center in 2016. There, she sculpted her job into a Children’s Character Coach by creating a character-building curriculum for those school-age kids. She integrated creative role-playing exercises, Christian lessons, games, and edible crafts. Inspired by the nostalgia of playing outside on the playground with children plus the delight of making and eating desserts- Monique began developing "Pastry Playground". Pastry Playground's first booking was December 9, 2019; the birthday of Monique's beloved "Granny" who rests in Heaven.
