My Name Is Cristina Rojas-Agurcia
Hey friends! I’m Cris, AKA the Batchmaker. I was born and raised in Honduras, where I grew up the oldest of 3, baking cakes and brownies for bake sales whenever I had the chance. I lived there all my life until I moved up to Georgia for college in 2006. I got my BA in Psychology, and after, my now-hubby and I had a chance to stay in the states for one year post-grad. We opened up a map to choose where to go next and picked Charlotte, NC without having ever been or knowing anyone here. Hubs got a job in Marketing and I immersed myself in my passion and started honing my skills as a baker.
I’m a mama to Josefina Leonor, our toddler, who hears the beep of the oven and yells “COOKIE!” We also welcomed our last member of the family, Joaquin Ignacio, who is all gummy smiles. My toddler and my husband, Pablo, are my favorite #Batchtesters. I am currently working on finishing my clinical hours for my masters degree in Clinical Mental Health, raising Josefina, and tackling Batchmaker orders! I love to stay busy!
I haven’t received any professional training in baking or decorating. I’m one hundred percent self-taught and I’m constantly growing and learning. I love food and people–and I channel that into baking. Nothing fills me more than serving others… well, that and a good cup of coffee (especially if it’s from my father-in-law’s farm in Honduras), a slice of cake, and good company.
