Welcome to “Just Desserts with Jane”

Jane Henry, the owner of Jane’s Sugar Magnolia in Dallas, is taking us behind the scenes of her bakery and sharing how-to videos, recipes and decorating tips. From cookies to cupcakes, this series will show you how to make stunning sweets with a little help from a pro.

Introducing Our Sweetest Blog Series Ever

A year ago, Jane Henry opened the doors of her very own bakery, Jane’s Sugar Magnolia. It took years of hard work, from training at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America to working with celebrity cake designer Ron Ben-Israel in New York City. But it all paid off when she returned home to NEPA and fulfilled her dreams of owning a bake shop.

Jane’s decadent pastries, gorgeous cakes and signature sugar flowers became an instant hit in the Back Mountain. Now, she’s looking ahead to another exciting year, and DiscoverNEPA is coming along for the ride.

We’ve teamed up to launch “Just Desserts with Jane,” a new blog series that will feature how-to videos, recipes and baking tips. We’ll capture some of the behind-the-scenes magic at the bakery and learn how to make treats that taste as amazing as they look.

If only computers could let you try a sample, right? Luckily, you don’t have to be a master baker to try these sweets in your own kitchen. Jane’s Sugar Magnolia often has take-home decorating kits with all the supplies you’ll need. And of course, you can always place an order for seasonal specials or stop by the bakery for a fresh-baked treat.

Jane made some awesome DiscoverNEPA cookies to kick off the series. Check out the photos from our visit, and stay tuned for our first video—a DIY cookie just in time for Valentine’s Day!
