My name is Josephine. I’m a graphic designer by day and a baker by night – or vice versa, currently living in Traverse City.

I’m a self taught baker, I started working in the kitchen when I was a young child baking with my grandmother and mother. I’ve always had an interest in making beautiful, delicious desserts for my family and friends. Out of everything I have baked, the french macaron has been my favorite treat. There is an art to making macarons, and it took me a while to get here. After plenty of encouragement from my family and friends, along with years of trial & error, I’ve decided to start my own business; Baked by Josephine.

Over the years I have expanded dessert offerings to meet the demand of my customers, and because I love creating beautiful, delicious desserts. I have a passion for all things delicious and am excited to offer you a variety of desserts that are appealing to your eye and your palette!

Baked By Josephine desserts are made fresh to order, in small batches with no preservatives. I strive to use local ingredients based around each season to create unique, custom flavors.

Baked By Josephine is taking a short break and will be CLOSED from May 1st – July 31st to welcome our new baby. We will be accepting new orders starting August 1st, but have limited weekly availability as we are almost booked for orders through 2017.
