Greetings! My name is Christine Monfriese, proud owner of Monfriese Rum Cakes, located at 4606 Queen Street, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
I was a TTC bus driver for 10 1/2 years. About 7 years in, I found the job to be stressful and no longer wanted to be there.
I had a passion for baking and knew that one day I would own a bakery. Life without risks is no life at all. After submitting my resignation, I packed up and moved to Niagara region to start fresh.
I enrolled in a one year Baking & Pastry Arts program at Niagara College while operating a storefront. Within one year, my dream came true. This was possible with the help and guidance of some amazing people I I’ve met in Niagara region, especially the staff at Spark Niagara.
It definitely feels great to be my own boss and run things my way.
Monfriese Rum Cakes specializes in made from scratch, rum infused cakes and cheesecakes for all occasions. 🍾🍰🍾🍰. CELEBRATE EVERYTHING!!
