Alexandria Blackburn | founder & pastry chef

Who is behind TwoTwentyTwo Pastry? It's me - Allie Blackburn! I'm a passionate vegan of 6 years and trained Pastry Chef. I started TwoTwentyTwo Pastry during the Fall of 2020, during the pandemic.

It has been a life long dream of mine to start my own pastry business. I have combined my love for animal rights and my passion for baking to create fun baked goods.

I have been baking for my whole life. As a kid, I was always making a variety of interesting baked goods, layering them, putting them in the freezer, cutting them up and making everyone around me try them.

Following my love of Pastry, I attended Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. After graduating in 2014, I have worked in professional kitchens from New York to Austin, TX.

So, why the name TwoTwentyTwo Pastry? For the last two years the number "222" has followed me and guided me to Charleston. I would see the number everywhere. Repeating numbers like this are also referred to as "angel numbers". Whenever I see the number now, I am reminded that I'm exactly where I need to be.

I hope to see you at a Pop-Up soon!
