“Jessica, from The Stubborn Baker, has baked for both of my son’s birthdays on countless occasions and I have never been disappointed with her decorative execution and unbeatable flavours — her carrot cake is my absolute favourite! I have also attended two of her decorating classes (Buttercream Basics and Intro to Royal Icing) and was very impressed with her knowledge and delivery. She was patient and clearly passionate about the skills that she was teaching us. I would highly recommend The Stubborn Baker to anyone looking to sweeten a special occasion or improve their own decorating skills!”


“Jessica’s personalized sugar cookies are both visually stunning and wonderfully delicious. Her cookies have the wow factor for any event and were the first item to go at my summer bbq, even though everyone commented on how they were too pretty to eat! She went above and beyond to make sure the colours and flavour was exactly how I wanted it. I highly recommend you try her baking, you won’t be disappointed!”


“When we approached Jessica with our wedding cake wish list, we knew we were asking for the impossible: a completely bespoke design to match our wedding theme and decor, a delicious-tasting treat that our guests would want to devour (none of that cardboard crap we’d experienced as guests at other weddings!), a groom’s cake to bring a smile to everyone’s faces and provide a secondary flavour profile, and all within budget, of course! 

Well, I am here to say that SEVEN YEARS LATER, people still remember our wedding cake and will randomly remind us of how much they enjoyed it (never mind the nice lobster dinner we provided, it’s the cake that sticks out!). The Stubborn Baker surpassed all of our expectations, and we can not recommend Jessica enough!”

“Jessica Kruger has provided the most delicious, beautifully decorated cupcakes for many of our major events, including fundraising events, tournaments and recognition nights.  Her artful arrangement of cupcakes becomes the cornerstone of the catering presentation and our guests rave about them.  She is able to customize them to our needs, including event logos, dietary needs and a wide range of creative flavours.  The quality is always at the highest level, and Jessica’s flexibility in fitting in our events, sometimes with limited notice, is so appreciated.

Jessica’s professionalism and high standards match our own.  Jessica’s cupcakes elevate our events and has become a favourite in our community – so much so that many of us order custom cakes for birthdays, showers, and other celebrations, including my own mother’s 80th birthday.   

I cannot recommend Jessica highly enough!   She is an incredible talent”


” For our wedding we decided to forego the cake and just have cupcakes. We told Jess the flavours we wanted, gave her an idea of our wedding theme and Jess delivered the perfect cupcakes. Not only were they beautiful and devoured by our guests (not a single cupcake was leftover), but Jess took the time to set up our cupcake table before our guests arrived and we could not have been more happy with how it all turned out”
