Jolirose Bake Shop is proof that a little extra time, you can accomplish almost anything. When founder Gilda Burke found herself with some time to kill, it came to her as if by divine intervention—she'd start to bake from scratch. She had no formal training, but after some YouTube videos and a Google search or two, she began to whip up cakes, treats, and more. And her test subjects—mostly her friends and family—loved it. They encouraged her to profit from her newfound talent and, thus, Jolirose Bake Shop was born.
Today, Burke's made-from-scratch creations can be found at weddings and birthdays around Northern Jersey. The shop was even featured on an episode of the Food Network's "Cake Wars." But whether it's a custom cake or some breakfast pastries, everything at Jolirose is made the same way—fresh-baked with care.
