Letty Martinez opened a bakery, specializing in custom cakes for weddings, quinceaneras, birthdays, family and corporate celebrations.
Letty, a cake decorator, and Ryan, a pastry chef, worked together at The Woodlands Resort and Convention Center Bakery under the direction of the talented Executive Pastry Chef Kevin Pysell. In June 2010 they opened a small bakery named Yummy Tummy Pastries in Humble TX.
After several years of providing services to our loyal clientele, we expanded and remodeled that little shop into our current gorgeous bakery. We have also expanded our staff to accommodate the growing needs of our clients. We still LOVE our home here in Humble Texas.
Meet the Team:
Letty Martinez-Monjo, Current Owner/ Pastry Chef
Letty is first the proud mother of four wonderful children. She started her work career at The Woodlands Resort and Convention Center in the Woodlands, TX. Letty was first placed in a position in the employee cafeteria by then Executive Chef John Brazie. After reports of upscale dining in the cafeteria being heard in the back halls of the resort, her talent for style and food design was recognized and she was quickly promoted to bakers assistant.
Thereafter in the bakery, she found her love for the world of pastry and cakes. So much so, she accepted an additional position as the lead decorator for the Kroger Company in a local bakery. She, being a businesswoman having already owned several businesses before, produced masterful work with cakes all the while providing excellent customer service. She felt at home in the bakery, meeting and greeting customers and listening to their needs. She would often go beyond the “templates” at Kroger and whip-up something custom and dazzle her unsuspecting customers. This was again noticed by management when a vendor offered Letty an opportunity for a larger regional position with their company, Deco-Pac a bakery training and supply company. Letty declined the position and decided to remain in Houston.
After leaving the Resort and the Kroger Company, she started a small in-house bakery for a family restaurant chain producing the desserts for multiple locations. After launching and watching business blossom, Letty felt it was time for her to branch out on her own. With the love and encouragement from family and friends, Letty started Yummy Tummy Pastries in June of 2010 in Humble, TX.
