Wall Street VP Trades Falling Stocks For Rising Young Chefs

Former Credit Strategist founds Cupcake Kids! to teach kids to cook in New York City
Sept. 30, 2008 - PRLog -- NEW YORK, NY – Jessi Walter made a good swap when she turned in her blackberry and picked up a spatula. After losing her job at Bear Stearns, the former Vice President founded Cupcake Kids!, a hands-on cooking company for kids of all ages. Walter, a Harvard graduate with a degree in economics, says that she “set out to give kids hands-on cooking experience while learning about food and having fun in the kitchen.” Cupcake Kids! provides cooking classes, parties and special events at Pong restaurant in Greenwich Village or will come to your location.

Cupcake Kids! has something for everyone. Chefs-in-training learn to measure, mix, knead and more- improving their math, science, reading and social skills. Classes and birthday extravaganzas are centered on specific themes and events are held in Greenwich Village or at your location (including schools, day camps, and charity events). Kids learn to make a treat, snack, or meal from scratch and take home a sample for the family to enjoy. Cupcake Kids! brings all of the ingredients needed to make a fun party, leaving your kids with smiling faces and culinary knowledge.

Cupcake Kids! has been featured in media across the country enamored by both Walter’s path from Wall Street and the positive influence of creating an outlet for kids to get into the kitchen and learn about food and nutrition. Recent press includes: CNBC’s “The Big Idea” 9/17, NYT 9/24, Wash Post 8/15, NY Post 9/29. Walter is excited about the constant influx of interest and intends to diversify into new avenues in the world of kids cooking. Jessi Walter left the corporate ladder of Wall Street with an unsure future but since entering the kitchen with these kids she has yet to look back.
