Please Support Your Community News Site's COVID Coverage

The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

"The tastiest cake EVER!"

JCakes makes the most amazing cake and fillings in all of CT! My husband and I chose a three-tier vanilla cake with various fillings, all of them so tasty! We chose the strawberry shortcake filling, chocolate truffle filling, and raspberry filling. We cannot choose a favorite, even if forced! Hope of JCakes worked with us and our budget so well. We also incorporated tennis-themed cupcakes as the groom's cake and Hope contacted us multiple times with different design options and pricing. They were also extremely tasty!

Her decorating is flawless and beautiful. We went with a simple cascade of flowers in our other floral colors of the wedding and Hope matched them perfectly. We definitely plan on ordering from J Cakes again and cannot wait to recreate our cake for our one-year anniversary (yes, we are so obsessed we are already talking about that).

JCakes has provided memorable and delicious wedding and special occasion cakes for nearly 30 years. From small birthday cakes to elaborate, six-tiered masterpieces, JCakes aims to exceed expectations.

"I know I've done my job when a customer cries as the sight of their custom cake," says JCakes owner, Hope Looney. "I love when the presentation of a cake becomes an emotional experience. It's a great feeling of pride and accomplishment."

Looney credits their success to these experiences that solidify and sustain customer relationships. She also credits the success to her loyal staff and her family.

"We pride ourselves on our hand-whipped mousses and homemade French-style buttercream, which can achieve a super-smooth finish. The aesthetics of a cake are super important, but taste must never be compromised," says Looney.

JCakes offers more than 22 different flavors, including the ever-popular chocolate mousse cake and cannoli cake.

Want to sample a little taste of heaven? JCakes provides a limited selection of filled cupcakes for immediate purchase. All other products are available as a special order. JCakes requires at least seven days advance notice for all orders.

To plan a custom cake, JCakes recommends setting up an appointment at the brand new shop on Route 80 in North Branford. Design inspiration is always helpful.

This information was provided by JCakes, located at 5 Foxon Road, North Branford.
