Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Make My Cake Episode 2 ( Sort of)
With all the constant news of mass deaths and violence around the world, I thought I’d do a post along with my sis celebrating the gift of longevity in life from God for our dad (who turned 70) this year! As for the food nazi’s out there, this report isn’t meant for you. It’s meant for the little kid inside you that says I want cake!!! And if you don’t like cake, then as usual “Eat boiled shoe.”
Without further ado we give you our Make My Cake Experience: Episode 2 (sort of). The sort of is because while this is the second time we’ve had a cake from Make my Cake, this is our first post on this awesome black owned business right in Harlem that more than delivers with it’s offerings. For the purposes of this report we’re focusing on their birthday cake making ability.
Located at 121 St. Nicholas Ave on 116th St. in Harlem tucked in at the corner of the block is this awesome bakery. I had come there several years ago in passing. After trying one of their red velvet cupcakes, I decided I’d have them make a cake for our mother’s upcoming birthday. I gave a general description of what I wanted to see on the finished cake as far as color and decoration and when it came out, much to my suprise the cake had exceeded anything I had imagined it would look like. We went for simple yet elegant.
This is the first cake I can recall that I’d ever seen our mother actually have and want more than one piece of. The taste was phenomenal. Believe you me, that cake tasted even better than it looks. Anyway once you step inside this place of sweet indulgent goodness your greeted by the following.
Next I took happy steps forward beyond the foyer and into the bakery. This is what it looks like inside a place I like to call Happiness. ;D
After hunting through thousands of photos on my phone and finding the pic of the cake they’d made years back for my mom, I showed the woman taking my order what the cake looked like. When she saw the picture she jokingly said they couldn’t do a custom cake or the color I wanted.
We both had a good chuckle before she wrote down the basic description I gave for the cake and showed me the invoice to confirm that what I requested was in fact what was written on the receipt. When I was satisfied that the receipt for my cake order was correct I paid and went on my merry way expecting the cake to be ready in two days time.
Two days later I arrived and once again was not disappointed with the job Make My Cake had done for me. They hit it out of the park!!!
Happy 70th Birthday Dad I hope you enjoyed your day.
This was a 10 inch two layer Butter Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and 5 Blue & White Roses. This cake could easily feed a dozen or more people depending on how generous the portions are. At $55 this cake is an excellent value for it’s price.
The taste once again was terrific and even drew compliments from one of my sisters who almost never cares for any cake we get. If you’re in the neighborhood give Make My Cake a try. I promise you, it will be a trip well worth it’s price of admission. I know I’ll definitely be back to order my next cake from them.
They have another location up around 139th st as well if I’m not mistaken so two spots same awesome baked goods what’s not to love? My inner kid just punched me in the gut and said I WANT CAKE!!!!
