Jackie Burnett started making cakes 2 1/2 years ago when her cousin asked Burnett to make her wedding cake. Now by word of mouth, Burnett’s business has grown and includes an array of birthday cakes, graduation, office party, novelty or “whatever your heart desires.”
“It’s relaxing to me,” Burnett said.
Burnett works from her home east of town with her husband, two children and one granddaughter. She also works full time for the city’s Public Works Department, but if she had her way, Burnett would bake and decorate cakes full time, she said.
Price range: $15 to $40 depending on size (one-fourth sheet to full sheet); wedding cakes are $80 and up depending on design and number of tiers.
