Our Story

Meet Jan

Our founder, Jan Jacks Potter, has had a passion for baking that started in her childhood with an Easy Bake oven. Since then, Jan has mastered the perfect recipe for moist, magical and of course delicious cakes. Dreamcakes was founded in 2009 in Cahaba Heights as a place to meet brides and make their wedding cakes. We outgrew our first location within six months and have since been in Homewood for over 11 years baking the best desserts in Birmingham. Most recently, we opened Dreamcakes Cafe in Hoover, where we are able to offer breakfast, lunch, coffee, and ice cream in addition to cupcakes and other desserts.

In addition to running our two locations, Jan is the author of 2 cookbooks and can usually be found in the kitchen developing the next recipe.
