Jenn, Baker/Pastry Chef
Hi Everyone! My name is Jenn, and I am proud to a part of the team at Amy's Cupcake Shoppe. I am just a girl that has a passion for cakes, baking, decorating, cooking, and eating! The thing that relaxes me the most is being in the kitchen and cooking up some tasty creations. I love fondant and making gorgeous cakes for every occasion. Somewhere along the way I got the courage to go to culinary school. I attended and graduated the California School of Culinary Arts, Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, CA in 2007. From the first day of school I knew this was right. I started my little business Fig + Moon Patisserie out of my house and have been making cakes ever since. I have such fond memories of watching my Grammys cook, and it was always so good. She was, and still continues to be my inspiration.
I was born and raised in Southern California, where it's always sunny and the waves are just right. I met Amy through Instagram, and instantly hit it off. We would like each others' photos and created a support system through our love of sweets. So, when she offered me a job I felt like I couldn't pass it up. Although, it did take the hubby a little more convincing to move to Minnesota. To me, it was fate, and I couldn't see myself anywhere else. So me, the hubby and our cat Mags took a leap of faith and moved. We are absolutely head over heels in love with Minnesota, and are so glad we are here! Our families were so supportive of us going out there after our dreams!
I'm also a movie loving, animal loving, hugger, and laugh-out-loud till you cry girl. I am not afraid of a little car-oake and board games. When I'm not at the shoppe I love spending time with my husband and cat Mags. We have been married 5 years, and I couldn't imagine my life without him and his support. We are inseparable and have nick named each other, the Snoopys.
I am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given, and I can say I love coming to work every day. I am so blessed to not only call Amy my boss, but my friend. We have such an awesome time in the shoppe working, learning, teaching and laughing.
Thanks to my loving husband, and all our family and friends who have come along with us on this journey.
