Definitely a pro when it comes to cake. I haven't had a lot of white cakes that were moist and fluffy. The cake was awesome and the price was right. They were very professional and handled everything!

Can I please start by saying that I never liked cake? Pies, brownies, cookies...yes. But cake? No way! When we got engaged I knew I should probably go with the traditional wedding cake because that's what people "expect". We were referred to JKB and I am so glad we went with them.

First of all, Kris and Jerome are a hoot! They are so fun and their small shop is the epitome of a "mom and pop" store...they treat you like family and provide a wonderful product! Our first meeting with them for our tasting was great. They made us 1 cake (each quarter of the cake was a different cake and filling) it was delicious and whatever was left over we were able to bring home!

Being a budget-friendly couple we decided to nix the floral bouquets and go with "cake centerpieces". Instead of a traditional 3 or 4 tier cake we had little cakes at each table. The cost for us was CONSIDERABLY smaller going this route (I'm talking saving more than $2 per person by going the centerpiece route). We went with simple frosted cakes in the lemon and strawberry flavored fillings. It was to die for!

So happy we went with JKB!

Awful service. If you want to be talked down to and railroaded into a bad decision, this is the place for you. If you want respect and to be given the time of day, DO NOT use JKB Cakes. I went in there on a Friday to order my cake. After less than 15 minutes, the owner had pushed me into making a deposit on a cake that was way too small for the number of people I was having. In fact, I went in the next day to talk to him, and he wasn't there, so I asked one of the other people working how many people the cake I ordered would serve. She said 25. The owner had told me 50. Due to this and the nonexistent customer service I received, I decided to cancel my order on Saturday--less than 24 hours after placing it.

When I went in the following Monday (it was the soonest the owner worked next) to ask about the deposit, the owner was belligerent and became extremely agitated. As soon as I started to explain why I canceled, he got very angry and began yelling "Get out of my store! We don't need your business!" Then, I left and the OWNER FOLLOWED ME OUT OF THE STORE TO CONTINUE YELLING at me as I walked to my car. All for a $25 deposit, which he never refunded anyway. It would have been funny if it wasn't so scary.

Even if he had listened to my concerns but politely explained that he wouldn't refund the deposit, it would have seemed somewhat reasonable. But, I guess keeping the $25 and acting like a scary mean person was worth the recommendations and future business he lost because he chose not to show some maturity and basic customer service.

Bottom line: not worth the money or the bullying. Go ANYWHERE ELSE, where they treat you with respect, don't overcharge, and have pretty much the exact same product as this sorry place.

The day I was calling around to cake places, I had to leave a few messages at a few places because nobody answered. When I called here, it was a day they were closed, yet Jerome still answered and we set up a time to meet. We got a great sample cake to take with us. It was awesome that we got to choose different kinds of cakes for each layer at no extra cost. Our cake turned out beautifully and better than expected. It was also delicious. He was a lot of fun to work with and took a lot of stress out of planning. I would recommend JKB cakes for anything.

I have known Jerome and Kris for years and have always loved everything they bake. Our daughter has severe allergies and they were able to make sure it was safe for her to eat.
Our cake was beautiful and soooo delicious! All I can say is thank you!

Cake did not come with the beautiful stand that i had rented-but did receive my money back. Just would have wished it was there-it really made the cake!

The icing turned out to look very yellow in which was not one of my colors. I just wanted ivory-so that was kind of a surprise. When I asked about it owner stated that was just how the ivory color was but this was not something I was told before or warned about. Just felt like a cop-out answer.

The cake was delicious and arrived with no problems

Looooooooved My cakes!!!!!
Working with Jerome was a breeze and he was so fun.

The cakes (all 13 of them!) were delicious and beautiful and exactly what I wanted! The frosting is TO DIE FOR - not a heavy, lardy buttercream, but light and fluffy. My favorite was the white cake with lemon filling. Yum!!

I will definitely get cakes here when I need them in the future!
