"BEST Mac and Cheese I have ever had. Plain was amazing, and the buffalo chicken was out of this world! <3
"Had some yummy macaroons at the Mad Hatters Arts and Music Fest in Jackson Square last week. They were awesome! First time having homemade ones. Everyone else I went with got sweets and all of them were great. Jocelyn is also super friendly as well.
"Most amazing baklava ever!!! 👌🙌❤️
"Jocelyn made some very detailed and cool looking Minecraft cupcakes and matching cake for my son’s birthday and they tasted just as amazing as they looked! Couldn’t have asked for better and would definitely recommend (and already have)! Thank you again!
