A passion turned into a business

Hi, Jessica here! I started this business in the spring of 2018 when my son was three years old. As a stay-at-home mom, he and I would make box-mix brownies or cupcakes as an activity to pass the time waiting on Daddy to get home from work. That spring, I was also looking for a summer camp for him to attend in our area and found nothing available for three year olds.

That's when I decided to make our own summer camp focused on baking with kids, since I was already doing that anyway! I was also reading a lot of "Montessori-at-home" books touting the benefits of hands-on learning. I invited some friends and neighbors to come to my baking camp and the kids LOVED it. After it was over, people would ask me when I was doing it again (something I hadn't really considered).

After much deliberation, I decided to do some fall classes and the rest is history! Itty Bitty Bakers was born! Please know though that I am not a baker by trade. Before becoming a SAHM, I spent my career as a clinical dietitian specializing in Oncology for 8 years and then worked as a Wellness Analyst for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama. A far cry from baking with kids! But, I couldn't be happier now and I love this little business we've got going.

I hope your child will check out a class soon. If you have any questions about Itty Bitty Bakers, feel free to contact me at ittybittybkrs@gmail.com.

Thanks, and Happy Baking!
