I'm Jessica Stubbs and I own Simply Sweet By Jessica. We specialize in custom wedding cakes and dessert tables. Being a self taught baker allowed my family and I to start from the ground up. We are opening a retail bakery located at 324 East Mitchell in Downtown Petoskey Spring of 2016. Make sure to stop by and try out wonderful desserts made fresh daily.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
It all started as a hobby baking for family and friends. From there it just took off from positive community support and a great number of referrals.
How would you describe your style?
I wouldn't say I have one particular style. We can create whatever the bride desires from a simple one tier cake and a dessert table to a highly detailed, fondant, seven-tier masterpiece.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
I love to see the bride and grooms faces the moment they take their first bite of the wedding cake.
What are some of your favorite trends from this wedding season?
The naked cakes are one of my favorites - simple and so romantic.
How far in advance should a couple look into booking your services?
Typically 6 months to a year to make sure you secure your wedding date, although we do try our best to accommodate every wedding.
What do you love about living and working in Northern Michigan?
We are so blessed to live in Petoskey with so much natural beauty and so many amazing wedding venues. My wonderful husband, Justin helps with wedding deliveries and my two lovely children, Jacob (9) and Jenna (7) keep us busy between sports, outdoor activities, and playing on the water with family and friends. We love living in Northern Michigan!
