Jeanne Cakes – Coronado’s Newest Sweet Addition
Jeanne Cakes is Coronado’s newest sweets business. Owner, Jeanne Herman, has been baking and selling cakes, cookies and cupcakes for over 20 years. She began baking in the Chicago suburb of Lake Forest to help shoulder the children’s college bills. But once Jeanne’s customers in and around Lake Forest got hooked on “Jeanne cake” they wouldn’t let her hang up her rolling pin when the kids graduated from college. Jeanne and her husband Steve moved from Lake Forest in 2003, closing their doors to the “Cake Cottage” and disappointing Jeanne’s many loyal customers. Jeanne and Steve then spent three years each in Texas and Los Angeles before moving to Coronado in June of 2009 to be closer to their daughter and her family. Along the way, Jeanne continued to make and sell her delicious sweets, including many wedding cakes. In Los Angeles, Jeanne’s baked goods were purchased in successive years by the management of a 12-story building near Westwood and Wilshire Boulevards in which Steve worked to give to their tenants as Halloween and Christmas favors. Jeanne’s now working out of a commercial kitchen here on the island and is open for business and ready for customers again.
“My all time favorite cake is my chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. It is moist and delicious and sure to please any chocolate lover,” says Jeanne. “Busy moms especially love ordering my cupcakes and cookies for school parties, birthday parties and special events.” “I love that often my customers’ orders are for family celebratory occasions.”
Jeanne has had many memorable orders over the years. One that stands out is an order for a birthday cake in the shape of an elephant for a U.S. Congressman from Illinois. She’s made cakes in the shape of a piano, the State of Texas, ladybugs and the United States. One of her wedding cakes was featured in an article in Brides magazine in 2001. One Christmas, Jeanne made over 600 dozen Christmas cookies. She also had a standing Christmas order from one of her Chicago customers for 500 white chocolate decorated toy soldiers from the Nutcracker ballet for her customer to donate to the Joffrey Ballet’s annual fundraiser. Recently, Jeanne made 1400 cake pops for a school’s junior and senior high graduation parties in East County.
Jeanne does not have a retail store yet but plans to eventually open one as business allows. Instead, she is launching as a pre-order, pick-up and delivery dessert bakery. You can call her at 619-319-5705 for cakes, cupcakes or cookies or place an order online at www.jeannecakes.com. The website is still under construction but it’s serviceable to take orders for cakes and cupcakes and will soon be ready to handle cookie orders. Orders can be picked up by pre-arrangement or will be delivered by Jeanne.
