Jenny’s Cupcakery: Our Go-To for Organic Goodies!

When we first moved to Cary, NC over 2 years ago, I joined a local Moms’ meetup group and we made a bunch of new friends.  One of them is Jen Strain.  When I heard she was starting to sell cupcakes, and better yet, that they were ORGANIC, I knew we had to try them!!! 

So we did…

These were decorated for an outdoor beach-themed party…

…Lilah’s 2nd!

…over and over again!

We’ve had Jen’s cupcakes many, many times, but often they have vanished before I could think to snap any photos!!  My personal favorite is Red Carpet Ready, a twist on classic red velvet which involves organic strawberries.  Yum!  Jen offers so many unique flavors and there are SO many more I want to try.  Excuse me for a moment while I go place another order! hehe  

Is your mouth watering yet???  Here’s a little Q&A with Jenny’s Cupcakery to give you all the scrumptious details!! 🙂

How did Jenny’s Cupcakery get started?
Owner and Head Baker, Jen Strain, cooked up Jenny’s Cupcakery in her own kitchen.  Jenny loved to make homemade cupcakes for her two little boys, and only used the finest organic ingredients.  She was eager to provide her children with delicious treats, without the over-processed ingredients.  Jenny has worked hard to perfect her recipes for gourmet goodies, and is very excited to share them from her home to yours.  

Jenny hired Shaughnessy as chief decorator, and the two stay-at-home-moms work together.  Jenny’s Cupcakery has branched into cakes and cake pops.

Why’d you choose to go the organic route?
When selecting ingredients, Jenny’s Cupcakery looks to use locally sourced, and organic ingredients.  We believe that dessert doesn’t have to be filled with junk.

We also offer gluten free, vegan flavors!  We want everyone to be able to enjoy our cupcakes!  You can visit the website to see what Gluten Free, Casein Free, and Vegan flavors we have at the moment.
