Since we kicked off a new year, and it’s been a minute since I last posted, I wanted to introduce you to who I am. The baker behind the scenes…I mean it’s only fair for you to know what it is you can expect from me not only as a baker and a writer, but as a human being. So let’s kick things off with the basics…
Hi, my name is Janie-Jean as I am sure you are aware of since that is the name of this place. Anywho, I live in the wonderful city of Cincinnati, OH. This is not the only city I have lived in, but is currently the permanent place I call home and I love it! Everything from the food scene to local events and the donut trail…um yea, we have one of those and I totally plan on exploring it with my kids this summer. Side-note: donuts are my love language! But I digress…
I am married to the most wonderful man! We met in college at an event I had to work involving our on campus radio station. He was assigned to help me which is the first time we officially met, sparks flew and yada yada yada we’ve been married for almost 10 years and have two wonderfully, rambunctious boys.
That’s right ladies, two wonderful little men- Lewis and Patrick. I grew up in a household of women (God bless my dear father) and now I am navigating the world of superheroes and legos and cars and most recently xbox video games. I still don’t quite get the appeal unless the game we are playing involves dancing (proud owners of Just Dance 2019 over here!) Lewis is in school full time now and Patrick is about to start preschool which is kind of scary and exciting and a little sad as my baby is almost old enough to go to school too. All the feels!
I love my husband.
I love my boys.
I love to bake.
And I love Jesus.
I am not perfect at it by any means, but I try to make Jesus number one in my life. I believe that He is the ultimate example of holiness and love, which I am sure we all can admit the world needs desperately. That is what I try to practice in everything I do- LOVE. I believe a tangible form of love that can be easily shared is hand-crafted food. Chocolate Chip Cookies, freshly baked bread, home made tomato sauce dolloped over any kind of noodle and garlic bread or even a well crafted cup of joe- you can’t help but feel love in a deliciously and uniquely created dish.
I create customized cakes and cupcakes to your liking featuring elements and flavors you hand pick to make your celebration creation a unique part of your gathering of family and friends. I also have standard favorites named after friends who came up with some banger combinations that appealed to other friends as well.
I also have a standard menu of popular items like cinnamon rolls, gourmet cereal treats, decorated sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and even pizza dough. Feel free to contact me for your next celebration by clicking here to send me an email and follow my Facebook Page to see what specials we are running in the shop.
Another element to this website we are going to start doing this year are special features where I share tips and tricks on proper preparation of some of my favorite baked goods as well as the stories behind some of our popular customized creations and local friends I know who create hand crafted masterpieces they like to share with their community.
Let’s partner together this year and share the love!
1 Corinthians 16:14 “Let all that you do be done in love.”
Love ya guys!
