Having been trained by the Master herself, Donna Love, I began my career as a Pastry Chef when I was 15. After visiting Donna at Love’s Quay in Wolfeboro, NH, - the restaurant she and her husband owned - for a job shadow assignment in the 10th grade at Moultonboro Academy, I was offered a position as her assistant and she taught me everything she knew about baking. When Mike and Donna sold their business in Wolfeboro, I continued to work alongside Donna out of her home when she opened up her shop, Love Bites. Now fast forward to today:

Different name, same girl. Jennifer's - For Every Occasion is now "For Goodness Cakes". I am a New Hampshire native and I still live and work in the same small town I grew up in. That is what separates "For Goodness Cakes" from the other cake vendors. A small town girl knows the importance of giving the customer special, one on one attention. You can expect nothing less from me. I give each client the attention he/she needs beginning with a private tasting all the way to the delivery of the order and setting it up with the final special and specific touches.

And now for some bragging rights: Through Meadowbrook in Gilford, NH, I have made cakes for ZZ Top, Travis Tritt, and Sugarland, just to name a few. I made the cake that was donated to the Town of Wolfeboro's 250th Anniversary Celebration. This is the link if you are interested in reading the complete article. href="http://www.newhampshirelakesandmountains.com/">www.newhampshirelakesandmountains.com

My other non-profit organizations that I have donated to have include: a photo shoot for Bride Magazine, center display for "The Knot" function, Capitol City of the Arts Bridal Show, a cake for Moultonboro Central School's Kindergarten's class to have during their Thanksgiving feast, a cake for WLNH - 98.3 and the Children's Network, and mini cupcakes to the Zumb-a-thon which raised money for David's House in Dartmouth. As I continue to grow my business, I pledge to continue to seek out those non-profit organizations that share my values and beliefs, then I will be able to add to my list of donations those charitable organizations.

On October 23, 2011, Lakes Region Bride held a Battle of the Wedding Cakes competition. This is an excerpt taken from their Facebook page concerning this event:

"Thanks to all our wonderful wedding professionals who made today's Castle Wedding Affair so spectacular. Our wedding cake bakers pulled out all the stops and brought us some and delicious wedding cakes for the Battle of the Wedding Cakes competition. Our winner was chosen by Frank of Montilio's Baking Co. of Boston: Jennifer's - For Every Occasion. And a special thanks to Tim Ames of the Nonantum Resort and Philbrick Photo for providing lodging and a photo shoot for our lucky grand prize winner! Photos to come soon courtesy Photography by Kimberly."

As the winner of Castle in the Clouds 2011 Battle of the Wedding Cakes, I donated a wedding cake to the bride whose name was drawn at that function. Read less

INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, Groom's Cake
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Pickup, Tastings
What dietary needs can you accommodate?
Gluten Free
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
No
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
Complimentary private tastings are held with the bride and groom based on the client's schedule. 
What are your tasting hours?
Tastings are done by appointment. I am available evenings, weekends, and most daytime hours.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Cakes are charged by the slice. Your basic buttercream is $4.00 per slice; your basic fondant covered cake will start at $5.00 per slice.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
If the top tier is to be saved as an anniversary tier, there will be a $25- $50 charge for that cake, depending on design and flavor. If the top tier is used for the guests, the price will be included in the per slice fee. Keep in mind, I keep a record of all orders and will be happy to make a fresh anniversary cake for the bride and groom that will be the same flavor and design as their wedding cake was.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
Since each client is unique, every cake I create is unique and based on the client's personal request. There are no pre-designed styles associated with "For Goodness Cakes", nor do I use any thawed out frozen cake.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
It is always my preference to support local venders. Since I live in an area where farms are prevalent, farm fresh eggs are used. If a client has selected strawberry, raspberry, or blueberry flavored cake or buttercream frosting, you can be assured that the fruit flavor will come from my using fresh raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. i.e. my mouth watering strawberries and cream cake is often requested.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
I have never used nor ever will use "baked in advance and frozen" cakes. I allow myself two days from the date of your event. For instance, if your wedding is on Saturday, your cake is not baked until Thursday and decorated on Friday or Saturday morning. The time of the event dictates what time your cake is decorated, i.e. Friday or Saturday morning.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
Due to the specialness of each client and product, I personally hand decorate every cake. For that reason, six cakes can be scheduled for a typical week-end. That is why you are encouraged to place your order as early as possible.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Absolutely! I recommend that the bride's florist provide the flowers that are to be used to garnish the cake with so that the flowers match. The same type of flower varies from florist to florist. To insure the same flower being used on the couple's wedding cake, the florist should make available, at the cake table, the flowers I should use to put the finishing touches on the cake.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
For those rustic weddings, we offer a cake stand that is an actual piece of tree, i.e. white birch etc. In addition, desert buffet displays, cake, and cupcake stands and/or plates are also available.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Castle in the Clouds is a favorite spot for many brides and grooms. With its breath taking views and exceptional service, I have partnered with them and will provide free delivery to the Castle in the Clouds. In addition, any location within the town of Moultonboro will be free. Delivery to any other location has been assigned a very reasonable deliver fee of $35.00 per hour and is based on round trip.

Jennifer is awesome to work with. She was very flexible with my changing my mind every month before the wedding and adding details. All she cared about was my getting what I wanted. She kept up with everything. She took wonderful notes and the cake tasted the same as it did when we did the trial run. It was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen. We got married at Searles Castle in Windham and even the guys who run it said that was the best castle cake they had ever seen as well. She did a truly AMAZING job. The cake traveled over 100 miles to get to the venue and held up completely. She was able to make little trees for us to put around the fountain stand we had and it was completely PERFECT! Jennifer is amazing! We have had other treats from her that are just as delicious. Her prices are outstanding and more than reasonable. It was a pleasure working with her and I look for reasons to use her service. She is wonderful at what she does. A true artist.

We were completely delighted with the lovely wedding cake Jennifer made us! When I contacted her months ago, I was a weary bride exhausted by thousands of wedding cake suggestions from Pinterest and wedding shows. Jennifer took all the little pieces and half-formed ideas I had, and through emails and our in-person meeting, transformed them into a coherent creation of beauty. But it wasn't just beautiful. My now-husband has hated chocolate cake his whole life, so I resigned myself to a vanilla wedding cake. When he tried the chocolate cake that Jennifer makes, his eyes glazed over and he announced that we HAD TO have this cake. It was so moist, delicious, luscious. So, if you have a wedding and you want your cake to be an appetizing work of art, this is the lady you need to speak with to make that happen. Thanks Jennifer for making our cake amazing!

Jennifer was wonderful to work with ahead of my wedding, and provided great suggestions to make our cupcakes both look and taste fabulous! We had excellent flavor combinations between the cake and frostings, and each cupcake type had a different decoration or look on top so our guests would know what each one was. The cupcakes were wiped out in record time, our guests were raving about them!

For Goodness Cakes created our wedding cake as well as our favors! Jennifer did an amazing job, and we sent her a picture of a cake that she was able to create and deliver to us on our magical day! We were in a bind with favors and asked if she had any recommendations. She gave us a ton, including cookies. We asked if she could make us Mickey cookies for our Disney themed wedding and she did an amazing job! Her cake and cookies are delicious and I would recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a quality cake vendor!

We had to plan a last minute wedding from Seattle to New Hampshire. My niece picked this vendor after talking to three of the local cake makers. She really liked this person's responsiveness and attention to detail. I talked with Jennifer myself and she was warm and professional and really knew her stuff. I wanted a pink champagne cake with pink champagne frosting. When we got to the resort in New Hampshire and saw the cake, it was exactly what I wanted. I had sent her a picture and she nailed it. But more importantly, the whole cake was delicious. And I mean REALLY delicious. The cake was firm but moist, just like you'd want cake to feel on your tongue. And the frosting was so light it melted in your mouth. It had a subtle taste of sweet champagne, not a fake taste. I highly recommend this person if you want your cake to taste light and moist. No gritty sugar taste here. She was also very reasonably priced, which really wasn't an issue for us but was a bonus. Thank you, Jennifer!
