First and foremost, I am married to my amazing husband and have two very busy little boys (Connor & Aiden) who both stole my heart the moment they were born. They are also my proud little taste testers.
Born and raised right here in Cleveland, Ohio, I also graduated from Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development & Family Studies.
My passion for baking started long ago when I was a little girl. I have vivid memories of being in the kitchen with my mom making homemade chocolate chip cookies and licking the bowl when she wasn't looking :) I remember watching my mom decorate my birthday cakes and being amazed at how she could take a page from one of my coloring books and turn it into an edible work of art on a cake.
After college, I decided to take a few cake decorating classes at a local craft store just for fun. It was then that I discovered my own love for creating beautiful cakes and other custom sweets. Since then I have been perfecting my craft and learning new techniques so that I can share my passion and talent with others. My kitchen is almost always covered in flour and sugar but I wouldn't have it any other way!
We believe it is important to give back to our community. Jill's Sweet Creations is also a proud Sugar Angel for Icing Smiles.
Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. It is their goal to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
