Hi, I’m Jill and I create food that tastes and looks amazing.
My passion for baking started as a young girl watching my Italian grandmother make bread (she came to America as an orphan at age 5). While the other children played outside I watched intently as she prepared her famous anise bread, cookies, biscotti, pasta, sauce, and the tiny details of making gnocchi. I was hooked.
In high school I taught myself how to decorate cakes and have never to this day taken a class. We didn’t have Youtube, Google or other ways to learn – so I taught myself. In college I worked in a bakery and watched a Master decorator make gorgeous cakes. She allowed me to work alongside her as I gleaned from her expertise.
Since then I have designed and decorated hundreds of cakes, cupcakes and cookies for family, friends and customers.
Creating food fascinates me. It truly is art.
This is not just a recipe blog but a “let’s me show you how”. Almost every recipe includes a video tutorial to guide you step-by-step.
My passion is inspiring YOU to create amazing food that creates memories with family and friends.
My First Cookbook
When I became a mom, I ended my career working in bakeries and starting making cakes from home for friends and family. I also developed a technique called, “The Write Way to Cake Decorating” which turned into a best-selling cookbook – Creative Cakes Anyone Can Make
In 2005, I faced the challenges of divorce. Instantly I became a single mom to my boys and needed income. This launched me to start my own online baking supply business. For ten years my Sweet Art Factory store grew to selling over 2000 different types of cookie cutters and decorating supplies around the world.
Along with owning a preschool, I decided to end my crazy busy life and sold my store in 2015. d
Thus, it started my love for creating video food tutorials on YouTube. With over 250+ videos and 350,000 viewers a month, it is an honor to share my love for creative food with you.
This brings me to today – yes, Todays Creative Food.
Each day I wake up thinking of new designs, recipes, and ways to share the simplest methods to creating beautiful and yummy food.
