Community Highlights: Meet Jamie Terry of Just Cake It Desserts

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamie Terry.

Jamie, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Our son Tory was a major driving factor…I used to work as a medical assistant and my husband is a teacher in a local DFW school district. We found it to be a struggle to get time off work to manage our son’s care. After my youngest daughter was born, I took some cake decorating classes and fell in love with them. My husband had already had some experience from working with his older sister who was a cake decorator. So, we decided to take those skills and start Just Cake It to hopefully assist in the high cost of healthcare for our son and daycare for our daughter,

As far as how I got to where I am today is 1st God simply put. God strategically placed people in my path to encourage and uplift me in ways they probably never imagined. Also, my loving supportive hubby Jerry (my partner in this business and life) he sacrificed sleep to help fill orders and complete deliveries along with our daughters Jada & Taiylar, who washed dishes, whipped up frosting and assisted with packaging orders. And 3rd loyal clients spreading the word about us.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
No, not at all. Childcare and internal insecurities hindered me big time from moving forward…and getting out to network with other businesses in the beginning.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Just Cake It Desserts?

Good luck…more like God’s favor made a huge difference in this business by placing the right opportunities and people in our path to get us to certain stages.
