about the blog

Welcome to pumpercake… my baking blog, my creative outlet and my online recipe box.  Here, I will share the tips, tricks and recipes I love in hopes to inspire others to find beauty in food and to create more beautiful food.

about the baker

I’m Jaclynn, a Metro-Detroit native and spirited Michigan State University alum.  I’m currently living in the DC area and am thrilled with the numerous possibilities that the city has to offer as I pursue a life of professionalism, public relations and pastry!  I’m passionate about food and very passionate about dessert.   I love to reinvent the well-known classics and recreate my friends’ and family’s favorite sweets.

Before my eyes, pumpercake has rapidly grown from a fun hobby to a kind of wonderfully blooming small business.  It seems that as my local network expands, so does the number of dessert orders placed. I find myself suddenly and pleasantly overwhelmed by what has turned into a steady stream of local clientele.  Stay tuned for pumper-updates, a new look, ordering information, and, of course, more recipes!

about the pictures

A very special thanks goes to Michelle, my talented photographer and beloved friend.  Without her loving support and encouragement I wouldn’t be where I am today.  Much photo credit also goes to Evan, as well as much gratitude.

  14. Hi Jaclyn,

    I run the site, JoyofKosher.com, a community food and recipe site. I was looking for a 7 layer cake recipe to use in a menu I will be featuring next week and was wondering if I can post yours with one of the pictures. I will give attribution however you like. You can actually become a member of the site so that the recipe will have your name associated with it and a bio and we can credit the photos too. Please email me so that we can figure out the best way to work it out. You are doing great stuff – good luck!

  15. Hey little sister,

    Great Job on the site and the food! Cathryn and I have loved the many treats you have sent us. I love showing people your site, it’s amazing.

  17. Jaclyn,

    I am SOOO happy to see you ‘back’. I missed you. I love your site and your enthusiasm. I, too, love baking and do it every chance I get. Yesterday I made a Jewish Apple Cake from scratch for Veronice (her favorite) and it was delicious. I look forward to seeing more of your baking hints.

    Love you tons,
    Aunt Ida
