Fall and Thanksgiving

Pumpkin cupcake

Because I know all of us are starting to gear up for the upcoming holidays, I’m just going to get right down to it instead of attempting to wax eloquent about some random subject!

New stuff for this fall: pumpkin chocolate chip mini-loaves, pumpkin cakes and cupcakes with lots of fall spices and a cream cheese frosting flavored with orange zest, and our “everything” cookies which, for kicks and grins, have M&Ms, Oreo pieces AND chocolate chips in them.

Making their return this fall:  our ever-popular caramel apple cakes and cupcakes, iced pumpkin cookies, and especially for my mom, Aunt Val’s coffee cake (Aunt Val is her sister who passed away a few years back). After a summer hiatus, we are also back to making challah on an almost daily basis and cinnamon rolls on Saturdays.

Now here’s the deal on Thanksgiving:

How to place your order. Please place your Thanksgiving orders online through our website. This is the best way we can keep track of our high volume of orders these days!

When to place your order. We will start accepting orders for Thanksgiving on Sun, Nov 1 and we will stop taking orders on Sat, Nov 21, BUT we may need to stop accepting orders before then if the volume of orders becomes more than we can handle.

For the smaller items, if you would like a wider variety, please consider stopping by the bakery on Weds Nov 25. We will be fully stocked with our usual items and you will be able to pick and choose. We would suggest you come early though because we are likely to sell out quickly.

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!
