Our Roots

Mad Batter by Risa was born out of my love for painting and my love for my fiance, John.

One evening I was trying to come up with a nice little surprise treat for John, and since he liked brownies, I decided to whip up a batch. As I started decorating them, I just couldn't shake the fact they looked so ordinary. John was special and they needed something more than swirls and polka dots. I started drawing pictures. Then for fun, I decided to draw John's face.

 When he came home, John told me he'd had a rough day and was a little glum over dinner. But when he saw his batch of brownies, he smiled. Then he saw his face on it and had a good laugh. And to me there's no better feeling than making someone you love, happy.

 So I started painting brownies, and Mad Batter by Risa was born.


The name Mad Batter by Risa is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Mad Hatter and his tea parties. Similar to petit fours, Mad Batter by Risa are just the right size for a tea party, and perfect for snacking, too!
