Love this place! Great selection of delicious cakes! Friendly people, too!
Pound cake is my favorite. I'm certainly no picky eater though. My grandmother made a much larger "standard" pound cake which was named pound cake because it was extremely simple to make with a pound of sugar, flour, butter, and eggs. I think just vanilla after that. Janie sells a pound cake for near $40 that is much smaller than the standard version. Probably about 1/2 the size. Honestly, I don't get it. I don't get why people pay so much for a small simple cake. It's ok though too sweet to me. Much sweeter than any other pound cake I've had. Costco actually sells seasonally 3 mini pound cakes each weighing 1 pound that are pretty darn good for $7.99! Check out the reviews. I can tell Janine uses quality ingredients but just doesn't come together the way I prefer anyways. Shouldn't be so hard to find a classic pound cake and really they are easy to make but I'm lazy. The price Janine ask makes me feel ripped off to be honest. I know she isn't getting rich by any means but near $55 to have it shipped to your home? I sure miss miss my Granny's version.
Larry and I love these cakes. So yummy with tons of filling flavor. If you want simple delicious dessert this is the go to. Convenient pickup at Fresh, However I like to pick it up at the shop. I always buy more than I need so good.
I purchased three mini cakes and my coworker purchased two mini cakes of various flavors. All five were dry in comparison to say other famous bundt cake businesses or even cupcakes. The flavor was not up to par either. I was expecting something fabulous and got less then mediocre for $6 per cake. Perhaps the cakes were two day old cakes, but even cake I make out of a box sitting on the counter for two days had more flavor and moisture than Janie's Cakes.
First time visit. Super sweet ladies, and delicious cakes! Will be back!
I received my cake on Wednesday, June 3. I was excited to receive it and eagerly opened the box which was well packed. However, I was disappointed in that the cake was undercooked and the bottom of it was extra moist and mushy. I had noticed prior to cutting it that the cake itself was very light as opposed to the golden crust normally. I am a pound cake lover and know when a cake is taken out of the oven a bit too soon. Janie’s was not willing to replace the cake or do anything for me. Disappointing is all I can say.
Cakes are good but I walked in on a customer and the employee making fun of my clothes. Real classy.
I just received one of their cakes as a gift. It was the vanilla pond cake. It was the worst pound cake I have ever had. It was like it wasn't baked enough. It was so wet. It was like eating uncooked batter. So much sugar. That's all you taste! I can't say anything to the person who sent it. I don't want to hurt their feelings. Never again!!
Glad to finally visit the famous Janie’s Cakes in person. My wife loves these pound cakes, and we were sure to make a stop while driving through East Texas. Quaint little store where you can pick up some while passing through. Definitely worth the splurge if you enjoy pound cake and want to experience Janie’s twist to it. The Java cake is our favorite, with the Chocolate and Chocolate chip coming in a close second!
Wow what a great place everyone was so nice and happy Great Cakes had some for the road and my son and I had some ship to Florida and Minnesota it was so great getting the cakes in the mail about a week later they were fresh and very enjoyable The Italian was a big hit with my mom I like the chocolate there was something there for everyone I do believe you can order online also
Best Gluten Free cake, nice and sweet!
I ordered something for the first time from here, and it was not a pleasant experience. The small cakes that I ordered for a friend were frozen. I will not be buying from here again. I should have went to Nothing Bundt Cakes.
I have never had a bad Janie's Cake before. Always fresh, moist and absolutely delicious. Great customer service.
