Hi, I'm Donna Jurado, owner, baker and cake artist at Bake-Me-A-Cake, LLC. I have always loved to bake, and art has always been fun for me, starting off in the form of sketching and crafting. My road to college took me in a different direction and I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Information Management.
For fun, I began creating cakes. I'm completely self-taught. My friends and family raved about my cakes and kept telling me that I had a gift to share. So, I obtained a license to conduct business in Pennsylvania and registered the business with the PA State Department of Agriculture (they're the health inspectors that inspect my home for sanitary and food safe practices). In 2009, Bake-Me-A-Cake, LLC was born with great encouragement from friends and family.
Although I am still quite passionate about cake designs, my career path has taken me back to health care. "Caking" is my hobby and I am no longer selling my cakes. I continue to design and create unique and fun cakes and strive to "outdo" myself with each creation...for fun!
Follow me on Facebook and Pinterest, because even though I am not selling my cakes, I am still active in the kitchen and I'd love for you to see me and my art grow. As always, thank you for your support.

Little Miss Liberty
My Little Miss Liberty cake took home 2nd place at the 2010 Great Allentown Fair. She stood over 3 ft. tall and brought a smile to many a face! The design is based on the book "Little Miss Liberty" by Chris Robertson.
"Growing Up Artfully"
I designed this cake for the Lehigh Valley Arts Council in 2010. I won 2nd place in their "Growing Up Artfully" cake contest. The celebrity judge was Lauri Ditunno, owner of Cake Alchemy in NYC. Lauri has been frequently seen on WeTV and the Food Network.
In 2009, I achieved 2nd place in the baby shower cake contest hosted by Kids-fun-and-games with my "Little Peanut" cake.
I was honored to create this cake for the Crayola Experience's (Easton, PA) 15th anniversary celebration in 2011. A fun day for all!
