Time for Thanksgiving!
We’re doing things pretty much the same way we have done them the last few years.
We will accept Thanksgiving orders through Sat Nov 18, unless we reach capacity before then. I will post something at the top of the website if we close out orders before Sat Nov 18.
All orders must be picked up by 7pm on Weds Nov 22.
Our schedule for the week of Thanksgiving, and the list of specific items available for Thanksgiving orders, are listed below.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Baked goods available for Thanksgiving orders:
pecan pie (with or without bourbon)
apple pie with streusel
dark chocolate cream pie
key lime pie
pumpkin roll (with or without toasted pecans)any of our cakes
any of our smaller items, such as cookies and cupcakes, BUT ONLY IN BATCHES OF 12 OF A PARTICULAR FLAVOR/BAKED GOOD (or in batches of 24 if ordering mini cupcakes)
For the smaller items, if you would like a wider variety, please consider stopping by the bakery on Weds Nov 22. 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. Thanks!

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!
We’ve slowly been rolling out our fall specialties:
Caramel apple cakes and cupcakes —
a cupcake chock full of apple pieces, frosted with cream cheese frosted, drizzled with caramel and then sprinkled with toasted pecans.
Pumpkin cakes and cupcakes —
a pumpkin cupcake flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and a bit of orange juice, frosted with cream cheese frosting with the same spices and a bit of orange peel, then sprinkled with nutmeg.
Pumpkin mini-loaves —
from a new recipe I’m FINALLY happy with, we make these plain, with toasted pecans, with mini chocolate chips, with cranberries and if we’re really feeling crazy with Mary’s cinnamon sugar crust baked on.
Pecan Pie Bars —
our ooey gooey pecan pie filling on top of a buttery shortbread crust
Ah, and Halloween is just around the corner! Such a fun, and as I’ve said before, family angst-free holiday! We’ve started making Halloween decorated cookies and hope to have some on-hand at the bakery through Halloween. Don’t forget our Halloween decorated cakes and cupcakes. My decorators, especially Kristen, have a lot of fun with this holiday!
THANKSGIVING ORDERS: On or about November 1, I’ll send out a Constant Contact email that describes what we will be offering for Thanksgiving and how to place your orders. If you’d like to be added to our Constant Contact email list, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Enjoy this calm before the storm — the December holidays will be upon us in a flash!
