About The Owner, Jill Dahlstrom:
One of my favorite memories growing up was my birthdays! My mom always made them special by baking and decorating birthday cakes for myself as well as my brother. She would always surprise us with something different each year. I remember one year she made me a Barbie cake. The funny thing is, I did not like or play with dolls, but it was one of my favorites! Mom was a perfectionist when it came to decorating so I only saw the most beautiful works of art. Her creativity and attention to detail is what inspires me to this day.
I had always kicked around the idea of having my own business. Graduating with a A.A.S. Fashion Merchandising degree from the Fashion and Art Institute of Omaha in 1985, I had thought about a business in fashion. Cooking, baking, photography and jewelry were other interests as well. In late winter of 2002 I saw a for sale sign in Yummy’s Bakery in Fairfield. I stopped in and had a conversation with the owner and after returning a few times for other visits I made an offer and in early June of 2002 he called and asked if I still wanted to own a bakery and I said yes! It was a whirl wind of an adventure from the start. I had only two weeks to learn everything about running a bakery! I had no idea it would lead me to where I am today.
