Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes was founded in 2006 by Kerri Dunn. She named the bakery after her two grandmothers, Lillie Russell and Phyllis Jayne LeValley whom she enjoyed spending many hours with learning how to bake and cook. After seeing how much fun and happiness cupcakes brought to people she decided to open a cupcake bakery in Eagle, Idaho.
In May of 2009, Scott and Conni Poulson bought Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes. During their 4 years of operations they kept the original recipes unchanged and continually worked to improve the quality of the cupcakes. Then in April 2013 he decided to sell Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes to Margaret & Ryan Lagerstrom.
So a little bit from one of the new owners Margaret:
I have loved baking ever since I was a little girl. I loved helping my mother bake in the kitchen and loved seeing people enjoy eating all of the yummy foods that we prepared. My mom would decorate cakes for friends and family and I would sit for hours and watch her in amazement at the beautiful creations she would make.
In July of 2010 my beloved Aunt and Godmother to our daughter, Donna Jean Lenseigne passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 51 from melanoma cancer. She was the varsity tennis coach at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, Washington and had a deep love and passion for the game of tennis. She was a wonderful and loving mentor to many young women. Everyone who met Donna fell in love with her laugh, smile and compassionate personality. Her passing was really hard on my family and all that knew and loved her.
After my aunt’s passing I decided that life was too short to not pursue my dream of owning my own bakery. So in December 2012 my husband and I opened Donna Jean’s Delights. We really loved making cupcakes and various treats so when we heard that Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes was up for sale we jumped at the opportunity to make my dream a reality!
We continue to use almost all of the original recipes as Kerri Dunn and continue to bake our products fresh every morning using the best quality ingredients. We strive to make your day special by baking extraordinary gourmet cupcakes for you, your friends and your family.
In honor of my Aunt Donna a percentage of all sales from Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes will be donated to the Melanoma Research Foundation to support medical research in helping to find effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma!
Thank you for supporting Lilly Jane’s Cupcakes!
