Today's Sweet Tooth: Jules Bakery in Marion

by Danielle Wagner

MARION (KWWL) A secret frosting recipe is the secret weapon at Jules Bakery.

Owner Juli Hardin developed the recipe more than 30 years ago, baking wedding cakes out of her home. Now she owns and manages Jules Bakery in Marion.

"I've always wanted my own business. It was a wish of mine. It's a second career for me so I'm actually doing exactly what I want to do," said Juli Hardin.

The bakery specializes in cakes, including wedding cakes.

"That's the one thing I still do. Everybody else does the baking, but I still get to do the wedding cakes. It's my favorite," said Hardin.

Besides cake, there's also bars, cookies and cupcakes.

"I have a sweet tooth, and I've always enjoyed baking. I had an easy bake oven when I was a kid. My family had bakeries in Wisconsin so I think it's in the blood," said Hardin.

Hardin preaches the idea: why not eat dessert first?

"I also say life is too short to eat bad sweets, so that's why we use quality ingredients in all of our sweets. So our customers keep coming back because they know this is where they can get a quality baked good."
