Jennifer Shaw – Cake Designer

Jennifer’s love of baking grew from having a mother who was a home economics teacher. From a very early age, she loved to be in the kitchen while her mom was baking, especially when she got to lick the spatula at the end. Little did she know, as a young child, that these experiences would lead to something bigger and better several decades down the road.

A lawyer by training, Jennifer took a cake decorating class at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts with her sister. What started out as a way to spend time with family, doing something that they both loved, developed into a true passion that led to the formation of Picture Perfect Cakes.

Jennifer’s biggest thrill is when she gets an email from a client saying that the cake she delivered was a real hit…and that it tasted good to boot.
