Hi, I'm Jessie! Wife, mother and creative force behind CakeFilley, an at-home cake business in Stillwater, Oklahoma I opened just over a year ago.
From red velvet to chocolate and buttercream to fondant, creating delicious cakes that double as works of art requires vision, passion and practice.
Lots of practice.
What began out of disappointment has blossomed into a career that lets me hone my artistic abilities and create something out of nothing.
After purchasing a cake for my son Tyler's birthday that wasn't what I had hoped, I set my sights on making my daughter Alexis's first birthday cake.
Countless hours of self-guided study, a melted Tupperware container, a crumbled cake, and several not-so-perfect fondant bows later, we were able to celebrate her big day with a 3-D teddy bear cake. Although I learned a lot on my own, I did take three "Wilton Method of Cake Decorating" classes earlier this year to help fill in the gaps.
I've been blessed to work with clients on wedding and birthday cakes, as well as those for other special occasions. I put my heart and soul into every cake, and I love seeing my clients faces light up with happiness
