Meet Jackie

Growing up, my Grandfather taught me how to make candy at Christmastime and showed me much about the science behind baking. He would often check up on me to see how my skills were improving and we would swap stories on our adventures in the kitchen. Later in high school and college, I became the designated dessert maker for any given event, brownies being my specialty! I fell in love with baking and primarily loved the joy I could bring to others through my edible creations. It wasn’t until 2013 when I decided to give cookie decorating a try and reached out to my friend and fellow cookie artist, Suzanne, for tips and advice. I decorated cookies just for fun over the next 2 years before I realized that I could maybe make a little extra cash with my hobby. Jackie’s Sweet Shapes was quickly created in 2015 when I desperately needed money to help pay for my college tuition that semester. Thanks to the support of those who gave me a try when I was brand new, I was able to save up enough money within 2 months to pay for the next year of college! Fast forward to 2018 when I quit my full time job as a fitness specialist to grow my business and decorate cookies full time. What was once simply a “financed hobby” has surpassed anything that I ever imagined it could be and am so grateful to my customers and supporters like you for making my dream a reality. Now my passions lie in spreading joy to others through cookies by fulfilling custom orders and teaching cookie decorating classes. Thanks so much for your interest in Jackie's Sweet Shapes! Our sweetest shape is your smile…
