Meringue Bakery


Jen Barney’s reputation for creating desserts that look as exquisite as they taste is now known nationwide. The Wisconsin-based pastry chef and owner of Meringue Bakery catapulted to fame and proved her fierce culinary skills by winning two Food Network Baking Championship Titles. Her creations showcased skill, passion, and talent that have people calling her the Doyenne of Desserts.

Today, Jen is best known for her elegant wedding cakes and unique, custom flavors—from classical and subtle to novel and bold. Each wedding cake she creates is one of a kind and made especially for the one-of-a-kind couple and, when possible, made with seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Specialties include edible flowers and hand-painted and sculpted cakes.

Meringue Bakery & Cafe offers a delicious cafe menu handcrafted in their kitchen using fresh ingredients.  Breakfast and lunch items include croissants from scratch, sandwiches on fresh made bread,  soups, salads, fresh drinks, and so much more!  The wide selection of breads, croissants, pastries and treats are a ‘must-have’ and baked fresh every morning!
