Peace & Sweets.. Baking the World A Better Place


How it all began..

This is me! Jess of Peace&Sweets.
Lover of Christ; wife, and mother of four by day.. renegade baker by night. mua-ha-ha.. ;)


It all started with baking birthday cakes for my husband and children around 2004, and I haven't stopped since! Though, I have to admit, decorating wasn't my forte in the beginning! It was more about saving money by doing it myself and the fun of baking from scratch. So (after some prodding from my mother) I enrolled in a cake decorating class at my local craft store to see if I could improve the visual quality of my yummy creations a bit.

After a summer of what seemed like daily sugar coma's, I gained the decorating skills and confidence I so yearned. During this time, I decided to share my newly found talent and passion for decorating my homemade confections with those closest to me. And after a certain amount of ooh's and ahh's from my family and friends, I decided to go for it and ta-daaa! Peace & Sweets was born.


While posting and sharing pictures of my creative confections on my facebook page.. I found there was interest in my talent from friends and family far and wide. So I've begun to think a professional career in the cake business might be in my future... 



**UPDATE** I am NOW baking your cakes at D's Bakery in Chisago City!! Someday (soon!?) after establishing a nice customer base *that's where you come in ;) I'll rent out the local storefront I have my eye on so I can share my treats with you and passer's by on a daily basis! I just.can't.wait. (sigh...!)

COMING SOON FOLKS!!

For now.. grab a cup of joe, kick up your feet, then browse my website and facebook page to see lots of yummy treats. Also, keep up on the latest news of what will someday soon be Peace & Sweets Cakery and Cafe by following and 'liking'! Thank you so much!

Though I'm not serving coffee just yet, be sure to call with your cake order when you decide what it is. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact me via email or phone and we can work together to create the confection of your dreams. 


Peace & sweets!
