Julianne fell in love with baking at an early age and got her sweet tooth from her grandmother. In fact, her grandmother nicknamed her “Sugar” because she was always sneaking off with treats in her hands. Her favorite desserts are cheesecakes, cupcakes and a good, soft sugar cookie. She bakes because she loves to make people happy and loves to see the joy on their faces as they devour her treats.
