About Us

From her first taste of cake as a young child, Jean Kirshner has been been obsessed with the creation of delicious, beautiful cakes.

Cakes by Jean specializes in creating cakes with a variety of delicious flavors and decorations that are as unique as Jean's clients.

Whatever you are celebrating, Cakes By Jean promises your unique cake will be created specially for you. (Each one of Jean's cakes is so unique she has never repeated a design.) We promise you and your guests will remember the cake you order long after your event.

The Belize Education Project is a group of teachers and medical workers who have joined together to support literacy in Belize, Central America. We travel annually to support the students, teachers and families in the Cayo District in Belize.
