Pastry Chef/ Owner Jessica Minisci 

Just Desserts by Jess is a custom order only bakeshop specializing in custom cakes for all occasions from weddings to kid’s birthdays. I also offer customized cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, party favors, and individual desserts. My creations are made with the finest ingredients and I will work with you to create whatever it is to make your special occasion everything you imagine. 

I knew from an early age that being a Pastry Chef was my vocation. In 2005 I attended the Culinary Institute of America where I graduated with an Associates Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts.  I then went on to participate in the World Culinary Cup Expogast in Luxembourg & Germany in 2008 as a Pastry Apprentice to the National Team USA.  I have also worked at several top dining destinations in Westchester and Fairfield including Westchester Country Club, The Bedford Post Inn, Roger Sherman Inn, etc. 

After 5 years of operating in a production kitchen, in 2018 Just Desserts by Jess has moved into a storefront location. Our storefront address is

677 Commerce St

Suite 104

Thornwood, NY 10594

Look forward to being a part of your special event!
