Fall Fun!

Iced pumpkin cookies
Iced pumpkin cookies

We’re kicking into fall! Get ready for caramel apple cupcakes (the wait is over!), iced pumpkin cookies (a few of you couldn’t wait and special ordered these in September), pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (yes they’re back!) and the pumpkin roll (with or without toasted pecans smushed into the cream cheese filling).

To make room for these additions, we’ll temporarily retire key lime and lemon bars, blueberry crumb bars, the coconut cupcake and the lemon cupcake. You can still order coconut and lemon cakes though.Halloween cookies-17-2

We will do our best to have lots of Halloween cut-out cookies on hand between now and October 31, but if you want to be sure to get some, please consider ordering them online. I know I keep inching up the price on these – currently $2.25 – but they are incredibly labor-intensive. We VERY happily welcomed a new decorator this month, Karen Rappaport, and I am hoping that her addition will make it easier for us to keep these cookies in stock, especially during the holidays.

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner! To simplify things, we will have a slightly modified menu of items available for Thanksgiving orders. You will be able to pre-order cakes and pies, as well as cookies, muffins and cupcakes so long as they are in sets of a dozen of a particular flavor.

For those of you wanting a bigger variety of cookies, muffins and cupcakes, we will have our usual offerings at the bakery the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but you might want to come by on the earlier side in order to be sure you can get what you want. Does this sound like too many rules? I’m so sorry if it does! Just trying to find the right balance between making our customers happy and preserving the sanity of my staff!


Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

We have added to our happy bakery family. Next time you stop by, let us introduce you to Aidan Gleason, Carly Meyers, Karen Richardson, Karen Rappaport, Addie Crowley , Miriam Ruminski, Jim Gordon and Martha Deale. We also welcome back Gali Sapir after her trip to Israel and we thank Joseph Benson for taking on the unenviable task of mopping the frosting-smeared floor of the bakery every night!

We will miss Ana Caceres (returned to the Univ. of MD), Lauren Klein (off to the Rhode Island School of Design), and Janine Joly (heading to Northwestern Univ.) but we KNOW they will come back and visit.

OK that’s it for now. Sorry this got so long! May your fall be fun and full of flavors!

Think about sending him or her a care package of two dozen of our homemade style cookies: chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, cranberry granola cookies, cookies and cream cookies and lemon ricotta cookies. We’ll prepare the package.  All you have to do is mail it!

Welcome to JennyCakes Bakery, a tiny bakery with a BIG heart! We opened in April 2012 with the hope of creating a cheerful place where people could buy baked goods that look and taste like food baked in a cozy kitchen at someone’s home. We love it that we know the names and favorite orders of many of our customers. We love being nestled into such a bustling community and finding ways to support the many local schools and charities. And we love it when our customers exclaim “these are just like my grandma used to bake!”

Stop by sometime and see what’s baking!
