"Julie bakes with love. It's her secret ingredient." Pierre Koffmann
Baking became a form of therapy for Julie when her mother, who taught her to bake, was diagnosed with dementia. They began baking together again, and Julie started her Instagram account as a way to document this precious time.
Her devoted followers regularly send supportive messages and photos of their own bakes. Her effortless style and amazing skills encourage everyday bakers to aspire to go ‘one step beyond’ and create something beautiful and imaginative.
Using natural and colorful ingredients, considered decoration, and beautiful pastry designs, Julie Jones provides ideas on how to make bakes that beg to be presented in a way that feeds your soul as well as your stomach.
