“We think you sold your soul to the devil – these are so good!”

“They were the best vegan cupcakes I’ve ever had.” Beth K., Cary, NC
“I actually did not tell anyone they were organic until they had eaten them. Unfortunately, I find a lot of people still tend to view organic as tasteless so I wanted an honest reaction. It was like one of those hidden camera taste tests on TV, ha ha! This time it turned out great!” Carey M, Cary, NC
“worked with Jenny’s Cupcakery to provide us with baby Yelp cupcakes (Scharffen Berger chocolate cake with Guinness stout, filled with Bailey’s Irish Cream and Whiskey mousse and topped with Bailey’s buttercream) and beautiful strawberry cake pops, covered in white choc…I think. Who cares!? These mini treats were fab and I look forward to trying more of Jenny’s creations in the future.” Cait. H., Cary, NC via YELP
“I purchased a dozen of Jen’s fabulous cupcakes for my wife and I’s anniversary, they were scrumptious. The cupcakes melted in our mouths! It was such a fun treat for us, something different than the norm. Jen takes such great care making them and her passion really comes through in the flavors of the cupcakes. Try them and be amazed!”

First Taste: February 9 2012
One of my goals is to find the best cupcakes and then eat them! Well, at this point in my research I have crowned the number 1 contender, Jenny’s Cupcakery. I attended the Yelp Triangle’s Second Burstday at Georgina’s. Our Yelp Community Manager, Christina G, ordered cupcakes and cake pops from Jenny’s Cupcakery. You can’t have a birthday party without cake! Jenny made cupcakes in the gourmet flavor, stOUTSTANDING, and decorated each little cake with the Yelp Burst logo. Not only were the cupcakes appealing to the eye, they tasted “outstanding”. Allow me to use the description from Jenny’s web site to accurately describe this cupcake: Scharffen Berger chocolate cake with Guinness stout, filled with Bailey’s Irish Cream and Whiskey mousse and topped with Bailey’s buttercream. OMG! Pure dessert heaven! The chocolate cake was rich and moist…a soft, delicate crumbliness. The addition of the stout just enhanced the level of deep chocolateyness complexity. The little cloud of mousse tucked inside the cake was a fantastic, joyful surprise. It was lusciously creamy and light. And finally the glorious frosting…I barely have the words to describe it. Mmm, it was smooth, amazingly creamy, and sweet but not too sweet…just the right level of sweetness. In addition, the ratio of icing to cake was in harmonious proportion…not too little and not too much. Simply, this cupcake was Perfect! A few days after the Yelp celebration, one of my Yelp friends, Ellen, sent me an email to let me know that Jenny’s Cupcakery was offering a half off coupon on eversave. Yeah! I purchased one with the intention of buying cupcakes from Jenny for my birthday. I can’t wait to try more flavors. Woohoo!
Hey, just a little note to let you know that if you have dietary restrictions or practices such as gluten free, casein free, and vegan, Jenny has cupcakes for you!” Heather B, Raleigh, NC via YELP
“the cupcakes were great nice gnache light chocolate flavor in the midst but packed enough of a variety punch and had a wonderful personality to show the creativity and originality for the makers.” Andrew M, Morrisville, NC via YELP
“This week I sampled 2 dozen cupcakes from The Cupcakery. I knew I was in for a treat, but not how great it would truly be. I love sweets, but not all sweets are as naturally smooth and delicious as these cupcakes were! Decadent. Lovely. Perfect-sized. You can tell that they’re organic and minimally processed by how pure they are. Sweet, but not overwhelmingly sweet. The perfect serving size in terms of cake to icing ratio as well, and that’s hard to perfect!
My girlfriends and I sampled 2 flavors: Fresh Strawberry and Sparkling Champagne. The Fresh Strawberry was tender cake with farm fresh strawberries topped with strawberry buttercream frosting. The Sparkling Champagne was light champagne cake filled with pastry cream topped with champagne infused buttercream frosting. That pastry cream inside was quite a surprise too!
A couple were left over so I took them home with me. The next day I ate a champagne one and it was just as good and then the day after that I ate a strawberry one, and it was still just as good. Can’t say the same for The Cupcake Shoppe or Gigi’s…
What makes them even cooler is that they’re super cheap and you can order them by the half dozen. Depending on the flavor some are $2.00 each or $20.00 per dozen or $1.50 each or $15.00 per dozen. Oh, and did I mention that she’ll deliver? The bakery’s owner, Jen S., bakes with some serious magic and sweetness straight from the heart. Yeah, it really is a handful of happiness delivered right to your door.”

I just wanted to sincerely thank you for helping make Danielle’s birthday special with the amazing cupcakes and delivering them!! They were definitely a hit with her and her family.
Thank you again so much!! I hope to be in NC someday to try them in person!
“Jenny Strain works out of her home, but in my opinion, this woman should be a professional pastry chef.
For her cake critique, she brought along 3 flavors of cupcakes.
Classic chocolate cake topped with Matcha green tea cream cheese frosting: a most unusual flavor even for me. I enjoyed the texture of the cake–very moist and the frosting had such an usual flavor it was difficult to find words. The green tea flavor was strong but when accompanied with the deep chocolate cake flavor it was astounding.
Organic fresh strawberry cake with fresh strawberry buttercream. Simple cake, not too sweet. The cake is delicious accompanied with the light and airy strawberry buttercream.
Madagascar vanilla bean cake infused with organic coconut milk topped with coconut buttercream and toasted coconut flakes: at first I thought the green tea cupcake was my favorite, and in fact, at the tasting I said so. But later on, after I took the cupcake home and tasted it on it’s own, WOW. I was totally taken back by the richness of the coconut flavors and the creamy texture of the frosting. I can’t say enough about this cupcake–it was pure 100% Heaven.
Jenny’s Cupcakery gets 5 stars, which I do not readily give to anyone. I would like to try her other flavors and highly suggest this bakery for anyone who wants organic, natural ingredients.
I am impressed.”
