Welcome to the Grandbaby Cakes Blog! I’m Jocelyn Delk Adams, a full time events and media producer, and baking is one of my passions. I created Grandbaby Cakes, a blog inspired by my grandmother, to display classic desserts and modern trends while showcasing the pastry and sweets field in an accessible way. I hope to inspire a new generation of bakers and dessert enthusiasts to learn baking skills and not feel guilty about enjoying dessert. At an early age, I loved visiting Mississippi to watch my grandmother, or "big mama" Maggie as my family affectionately calls her, bake. Big mama bakes cakes that literally have her neighbors lined up around the block waiting for a taste. She not only invents (yes, she developed all of her own recipes) the most delicious melt-in-your-mouth desserts I've ever tasted, but she also infuses them with so much love.
I didn't realize I had the "baking" gene as my family calls it until my 20s. Now that I am in my early 30s, I can't stop baking! I achieve my ideal state of zen in my condo's cozy kitchen, whipping up delicious treats for family and friends as they lounge nearby to taste-test.
Follow me on Grandbaby Cakes as I follow in my grandmother's footsteps. This blog is a tribute to her and the generations of beautiful baking women in my family. To learn more about me, visit my website here.
