Only the Best

One quick thing before I start in with the fun stuff. All of a sudden we’ve been having trouble with our emails and order confirmations landing in our customers’ spam folders.  So, if you emailed me and didn’t hear back, or you placed an order and didn’t receive a confirmation, please check your spam folder and “whitelist” jennycakesbakery.net.  Thanks!  Jenny

Only the Best!


It’s no secret that we love our customers. So when a local filmmaker team approached us to make a film about JennyCakes, we saw it as a great opportunity to share our story in a new way.
From cupcakes to custom cakes to quiche and seasonal goodies, we love baking our delicious goods and we have a great time selling them. But even more important is putting a smile on the faces of our customers. And this new video will give you a behind the scenes look at why it’s so important to us as a team.
We’re starting 2018 with even more excitement for giving the very best! And we’re back to our regular hours, so come in and see what’s baking!

Produced, filmed, and edited by Amy & Enrique Huaiquil.

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!
