Jennywennycakes Grand Opening!

What a great time we had at our grand opening!  We wanted to celebrate the fact that we finally found a home in Carmel Mountain Ranch.  We have been looking for a year or so, but nowhere came along.

When I found out that Sumi had decided to call it a day, I looked around and it was the perfect space.  Initially it was a bit of a worry to have to commute up to North County San Diego, but I remembered that a lot of my customers come from there to pick up their cakes from Claremont, and it is a lovely community.

There is a nice big kitchen, then a central room where we can do our decorating, a tasting room/office and a lovely reception room which Tara from Twinkle and Toast did her magic with the calligraphy, a quote from my dear grandma.

We served lots of delicious desserts, and drinks with lots of help on the florals and event design from Desiree from Penny Blooms who paired vibrant orange and yellow spring blooms with splashes of gold to complement our logo.

We got quite carried away with the baking, we wanted to showcase some of our favorite cakes, so we had our lemon cake, chocolate cake and our hazelnut in the form of a frangelico trifle with praline and chocolate mousse.

We also had cake pops and macarons with fun sprinkles, hummingbird and guinness mini cupcakes.

Our other table had profiteroles, donut muffins, banoffee pie, to honor pi day, along with our delicious hot cross buns, we did a different spin on those with choc chips, nutella and hazelnuts.

There was a gluten free table showcasing our orange almond cake pops, sparkle cookies and our friend Paula's gluten free coconut mini cupcakes.

It was a really fun day, and we enjoyed seeing new faces and some old friends and now we're ready to bake up a storm.

The new facility gives us lots of flexibility, but we've decided not to include retail in our operation since the office park doesn't have a lot of walk-through trade.  You can still email us to place an order though, and we can usually accommodate a simple order with a weeks notice, with larger complex orders needing a month's notice, especially when we get into the busy wedding season.

Our email is so give us a shout if you have an order.
