Meet Your Local Baker from Elk Grove – Jhenn’s Sweet Tooths

Jerlyn Vinuya, fondly called Jhenn by family and friends, has been cooking and baking since she was in 3rd grade. She loves to cook for her family and friends.

In 2015, she moved to the US from the Philippines with her family. She spent a lot of time in the kitchen making dishes and baked goods for her husband to take to work. Her husband’s coworkers were so impressed with her amazing dishes that they started asking if she could cook and bake for them too. She knew then that she could make a living doing what she loves the most. 

In 2017, she took a Pastry Program at Napoli Culinary Academy to hone her skills as a pastry chef.

Finally, this year, in 2020, she officially started her own business, Jhenn’s Sweet Tooths

Look no further for Filipino pastries and desserts, Jhenn’s Sweet Tooths will take of your cravings! 

Meet the Queen of Ube Treats

Olga Manansala is a local baker from Elk Grove, and the owner of Baked By Olga.

“I started baking as a hobby in 2008. Infusing standard baking staples with the more exotic, I create flavors transcending all ethnicities;  available in a plethora of ube (purple yam), coconut, and standard varieties.

I am very creative and loves art so much, that with baking I can express and create what I want to create. I feel freedom and be just “me”. Baking makes me happy and baked goodies make everyone happy. 

Spreading joy is extremely powerful.”
