My name is Jordan, and I am blessed to be “Mama” to two beautiful children; Mason and Lily. My husband, Nick, and I have been together for 6 years and married for 4 1/2. I am a musician who recently found her love for baking.
I grew up enjoying many wonderful sweets made by the women in my family, but I never tried to bake until I was 26 years old and decided to tackle German Chocolate Cake for my church’s Oktoberfest picnic. What a beast of a cake to start with! From then on I would bake twice a year… Oktoberfest and Thanksgiving.
In December of 2017, I was heading to a party and decided to try a different dessert… the Bavarian Apple Torte. It baked beautifully, and everyone loved it! I took it to every holiday party I attended that year, and I never had leftovers to bring home. From then on, I was hooked. What else could I make for my family?
In 2018, I donated the Apple Torte to a bake sale at the private school where I teach music. I had been thinking of trying to sell a few to lighten the load of the approaching holidays, but I had no idea what would come of that small donation! I was asked to make a birthday cake for a friend, then the orders started rolling in for holiday baking.
My son always wanted to help in the kitchen, wanting to watch, count, and mix with me. It was in those precious moments in the kitchen that Bake Mama Bake was born.
