Behind the Scenes

PBteen Extraordinary Teen – Payton Pelaez

A few weeks ago we introduced our amazing Extraordinary Teens! Today we are learning about the extraordinary culinary creations from Payton Pelaez! You may remember Payton from our post last month on Mother’s Day Bark. Did you try out the phenomenal recipe from Payton? Share with us @pbteen and #mypbteendiy 🙂

Payton has been cooking up a storm in the kitchen from an extremely early age. He found his passion in making dessert and opened his own homemade dessert business, Chez Pay, where he delivers fresh desserts to friends and neighbors in San Francisco and donates 20% of his proceeds to charities like The American Red Cross, The Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and Kiva.

You may recognize Payton as a contestant on the FOOD NETWORK’s “Kids Baking Championship” show where he took sixth place. Missed it? You can catch Payton in action here.

We’re so happy to have Payton and his yummy yummy creations among the Extraordinary Teen family. Payton found an incredibly delicious way to give back and he is as sweet as his desserts 🙂 To view all of his delicious desserts click here and order some today!
