Thank you so much for visiting my page! I am Parinda (May) Thompson. I am a designer living in West Des Moines, Iowa with my husband and two sons. I am the founder of Parinda Cupcakes. 

I was born in Bangkok, Thailand and came to the United States in 1996 at the age of 15 as an exchange student. I graduated summa cum laude from Grandview University, with a bachelor degree in Graphic Design and worked as a web and graphic designer for 12 year. In 2015, my husband and I decided for me to leave the design world to stay home with our young sons. That was when my journey in the cake world began. I started making some cupcakes for friends and families during my free time and had fallen in love in the artistic side of it.  I realized how much I missed being creative. 

In 2017, I decided to start my home bakery and since then, I couldn’t have asked for anymore blessings. It is the perfect blend of the gifts I was given with my passion for design, cooking, baking and desire to serve others. 

Cakes and cupcakes are my canvases. It is my pleasure to offer you a range of designer cakes that are made from the best ingredients. All of my cakes are designed and created uniquely for each of my clients. I would liked to say that there are no two cakes the same. Thank you so much for your interest and support. Please leave me a comment or if you wish to place an order, please fill out this form. I look forward to be able to serve you!
