Christopher Ryan Confections Bakery & Cafe is the extension of Christopher Ryan Confections, located at NewBo City Market!


Christopher got his culinary start at home when he was a teenager. He went on to attend Kirkwood Community College pursuing Culinary Arts. Upon completion, Christopher went to The French Pastry School in Chicago, led by Jacque Pfeiffer and Sebastien Cannone. Graduating in December 2004, Christopher created Cakes By Christopher.


Cakes By Christopher serviced the Cedar Rapids and Eastern Iowa area until October 2012, when he and his wife Anna opened Christopher Ryan Confections at NewBo City Market.


Christopher Ryan Confections Bakery & Cafe is forthcoming as an extension of the Christopher Ryan Confections brand. The new location at 1394 Twixt Town Road, Marion, IA, will allow Christopher and Anna to better serve their customers. We will offer a full lunch menu as well as expanding our pastries and cakes that we are so well known for. Stop in today for a bite and try us out!
