Wandering Whisk – The Sweetest Kind of Happiness
Enjoying life to the fullest is a pretty sweet motto to live by. Be present, laugh often, drink good wine, and darn it – indulge in that dessert you have been craving! Downtown St. Pete is home to a darling baker who believes in perseverance and baking delicious sweets with fine ingredients for us to enjoy. Her name is Jennifer Jacobs, she is Wandering Whisk and creates the sweetest kind of happiness.
Jennifer is a Florida girl who has fond memories of baking during the holidays with her adorable Romanian mother, Barb. Together, they recreated family recipes that had been passed down through generations.
After graduating from UCF, Jennifer spread her wings and moved to The Big Apple to pursue her dreams of becoming a music executive. Even as she worked with The Rockettes and Sony Music, Ms. Whisk continued to bake in her 400sf NYC apartment.
HSN to Entrepreneur.
Eager for a change and to be closer to family, Jennifer decided that the warm weather of Florida missed her. She landed a job in production at HSN and made Downtown St. Pete her new home. (Thankfully, because four years later, we now can order her desserts for our special occasions!)
A few years ago, this little sweetheart shared her Red Velvet cookies with cream cheese filling with her coworkers on Valentine’s Day. Never did she think that people would want to pay money for her baked goods, but guess what? That was the day she made her first sale and HSN has even featured her desserts on air!
Jennifer came up with the name Wandering Whisk in 2015 due to her love of travel. Thanks to the Florida Cottage Law, she bakes from home and creates the treats that allow our taste buds to wander to heavenly lands of sweet goodness!
“It’s not about baking a cake,” Jennifer said, “it’s about bringing happiness to people who are ordering from you.” That is exactly what she brought to me when I first tried her Peppermint Cream Filled cookies at Nova Noel at NOVA 535. I’m not typically drawn to desserts with icing or frosting, but wow did her cookies bring a smile to my belly button!
Where is the whisk wandering?
Find Jennifer at The Morean Arts Cupcake Competition in August of 2017. Previous years she has been awarded people’s choice (by a margin of over 200 votes!). She left the judges in awe that they had to create a new category, Best Butter Cream. Wandering Whisk is truly mouth-watering. Perhaps all of this success will lead Jennifer to opening a Bakeshop in Downtown St. Pete sometime in the near future!
Whether you simply have a sweet tooth or are planning an event, Wandering Whisk is a wonderful option for delectable dessert. Jennifer even creates dessert bars that cater toward the client’s vision, with a completely customizable table design and delicious baked goods that compliment any theme.
