World Cardmaking Day: Meet the Demonstrators: Tonya Dooley

Time is just flying by and we’re almost at our two day online World Cardmaking Day event this Saturday Oct. 6 from noon to 5 pm and Sunday Oct. 7 from noon to 530 pm.  We have such great demonstrators lined up for you as well as some amazing giveaways!

Allow me to introduce Tonya Dooley, Founder & CEO of Cutie Pie That!


Avid home baker turned Pastry Chef Tonya Dooley is the Founder and CEO of Cutie Pie That!, a Pasadena-based micro-bakery specializing in handcrafted pies made with local, seasonal, certified-organic produce.
Cutie Pie That! was inspired by her husband Mike and countless other friends and family members that prefer pie over cake. Wanting to quench everyone’s thirst for their favorite pie, Tonya set about finding individually-sized pie pans. She quickly discovered that these were not readily available to the home baker, so she improvised with home baking supplies until she figured out how to make them just the right size.  And they were SO darned cute! She enrolled in a Professional Baking Program at the Epicurean School of Culinary Arts and Cutie Pie That! was officially born. 


Why Cutie Pie That!? A Valley Girl at heart (though hailing from Seattle Wash.), Tonya began looking at all dishes—pies, cakes, puddings, quiches, calzones, etc. – and saying out loud “I could TOTALLY Cutie Pie that!” Now these delicious, rustic-in-appearance, individually-sized confections are available to you, both sweet and savory, in an array of seasonal flavors.


Cutie Pie That! Products can be purchased online (, at select farmers’ markets and events, and at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles (Stall #A162).

We can’t wait to see your demo Tonya!
