Jen’s Cakes

We also enjoy making mini desserts and you can place your order for these tiny creations as close as 10 days in advance. ​ ​

Jen’s Cakes was started in May of 2004 in a commercial kitchen in downtown Los Gatos. In July of 2008, we relocated our business to downtown Willow Glen in San Jose, CA. The opening of our solo location has been an adventure we have enjoyed immensely.

All custom cakes and large orders are done to order. Wedding cakes can be booked anywhere from 18 months to days before the date as long as the reception location is nailed down and we are available. Cupcake and special occasion cake orders should be booked 7 days in advance.

The business is really named after the creator. Jen decorated her first cake for her older sister’s birthday in 1994. Later she went to the California Culinary Academy (CCA) with the intention of becoming a caterer. The smelly nature of cooking turned her attention to a more pleasant aroma, desserts. Since her graduation from CCA, Jen has concentrated on cakes and tasty treats. Jen began by doing birthday cakes for Applebee’s in Gilroy where she worked as a waitress. She then went to work for a Bay Area bakery that concentrated on Wedding and other special occasion cakes. After the ownership at the bakery changed, she went on her own doing cakes for friends and family. 

Jen has her hands in every aspect of the creation of your cake. She loves to create beautiful, fun and crazy designs for her customers. She likes to think she can do almost anything a client desires however knows her limitations and can help your dreams become reality.

Jen quickly realized she could not do everything on her own.  She has hired a team of support staff who have become very valuable to the company.  Most of the communication that occurs at Jen’s Cakes is handled by our Office Personnel.

Jen has really enjoyed starting a business and having something she can call her own. “Being a part of someone’s happiest day is really exciting. I love what I do. I hope that we can be a part of your next special event and make a lasting impression…right down to the last crumb.”
