Meet Joy of Sweets & Joyness

Joy and I at Ross Island Brewery

I have this amazing friend name Joy of Sweets & Joyness.  She is an extremely talented baker.  You can check out her website here.  On top of her baking talents, she has a huge passion for beer.  She loves combining the two in really creative ways.  She once made a stout beer cake for our friend’s birthday!

Joy is a wonderful baker that has over 15 years of experience in traditional baking and pastry and would be happy to make your next occasion the best with contemporary style of cookies or cakes to order.

Texagonian (a native Texan living in Oregon or a native Oregonian living in Texas) Joy Childress is a pastry chef focused on making the world a sweeter place one dessert at a time. She founded Sweets & Joyness in 2011 to capture fun events and personalities in custom cake and cookie designs.

Joy’s love for pastry-making started early with a cake decorating course at a local craft store when she was in junior high. From there Joy spent her formative years nurturing an interest in calligraphy and design and building her decorating expertise with a cake decorating job at Cold Stone Creamery.

Joy received her Patisserie and Baking Associate of Arts degree from Western Culinary Institute in 2007. Since then, she has worked for a number of Portland, Oregon’s finest bakeries – including three-times Cupcake Wars winner Crave Bake Shop (now Kyra’s Bake shop), Helen Bernhard’s Bakery, and Marsee Baking – honing her confectionary crafts and creating her unique approach to custom desserts.

About BiteSize

Hi! I’m Jenna, but I got the nickname BiteSize in high school. I love homebrewing beer, thus BiteSize Brews. A blog focused on homebrewing, local brewery reviews and recipes. I’m lucky enough to live in the microbrewery capital of the world. I’m also a big fan of social media (chances are I’ll sprinkle a bit of it into this blog).
