“The Best Cakes Around”
Review of Jenny Cakes

Jenny Cakes
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Kensington
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 October 2017

Well, forget Cake Boss. This place pretty much has the best cakes, anywhere, period. Clearly a winner. It's located in a space that has a checkered past - lots of different businesses, including Duane's bar from 1894. Here's hoping that it remains a bakery and a Kensington cornerstone for many, many years to come. A total winner.

Service is friendly and accommodating. Cupcakes were fresh, flavorful and moist.I wish they started making French-style pastries (the fancy kind).

We started a tradition when Jenny Cakes opened of ordering a birthday cake for my nephew when he came down to see me in June. He likes chocolate with peppermint buttercream frosting. This year he turned 17 and asked for an extra big cake, which he ate for breakfast during his stay (as well as at other times). Apparently, Manhattan does not have anywhere that makes cakes that are as good.

Last minute dessert shopping for a small get together and we decided to try our local little bakery. Cakes were special order, so we went with cupcakes and they were delicious. My favorite flavors German chocolate and red velvet were there and some other interesting combinations. Delicious and not expensive.
