Jacqueline "Jacquie" Jenkins is the owner/operator of "GG's Baby Cakes..." and began this wonderful journey of creating beautiful cakes in July 2009. Born and raised near Chicago, IL, Jacquie has always had an interest in creating beauty with her hands. At an early age, she began baking cookies and cakes, always trying her hand at new recipes, but never had a thought, or even knew, that the world of cake decorating existed. As a young woman, she embarked on a career as a Master Cosmetologist in 1987 and still holds the license to date.
In 2005, she began jewelry-making as a hobby. While taking her first Wilton class in July 2009, the fire for creating edible beauty was ignited and the obsession began. After making cakes for family members and friends, ideas of starting a business were on the table. In November 2009, the first order was placed and GG's Baby Cakes...was born.
Jacquie is also a Wilton Method Trained Instructor and has shared her gift and knowledge of cake design with over 700 students, to date, who share the same the drive and determination to create beautiful cakes. She has been an inspiration to some of her students, tapping into their inner creativity and encouraging them to fulfill their dream of entrepreneurship, as well as encouraging several to become Wilton Method Instructors.
Hair Stylist, Jewelry Designer and now Cake Designer - Jacquie has enthusiasm for ALL things that require great attention to detail. Getting a cake from GG's Baby Cakes... ensures you are getting quality ingredients and a cake "designed with you in mind".
