Been using Janet's for my kids' bday parties for about 8 years. About a couple years ago is when I noticed the cakes were not the same as they were previously. Very dry and old tasting, on the verge of leftovers you'd find sitting in your kitchen for a week. Figured I'd try round two and see if this happened... More

My husband got a cake for my son's birthday one year & the whole thing was excellent, but especially their icing is sooooo good! Prices are pretty much what you pay in the big stores, but the icing is better.

Janet's does a nice job decorating and providing a good, fresh tasting cake. We have gotten many cakes for birthdays from here. Never disappointed. They do get busy though and only take so many orders...so phone ahead early.

Cookies and cakes taste good but I had the misfortune of witnessing their work while picking up my order. I like to see vinyl GLOVES being worn by people who handle food, and hairnets/caps. None of this was happening, which gives it a Granny's Kitchen type feel, definitely not business-like. EWW.

I can call Janet and they can whip up a cake on most dates with 24 hours notice (except graduation time). They did this for a wedding cake as well. The almond icing is awesome. The decorating is great. Love this locally owned establishment!

I love Janet’s cakes, they are very friendly and inviting when you visit. They have never turned an idea down that I have brought to them and they always executive it well. The strawberry cake is amazing!

My daughter first had one of Janet's cakes at a baby shower a few years ago and ever since we've not ordered a cake from anywhere else. They did a beautiful Midsummer's Night Dream cake for a cast party, an awesome Army Graduation cake, Birthday Cakes, etc. My daughters favorite is the butter pecan cake with the almond butter frosting...

We no longer live in Bloomington but when we return for a visit, we always go for a Janet Cake or cupcakes to share with family & friends. This is a fabulous dessert contribution for a party. We are always amazed when we get this "Oh my gosh, is that a cake from Janet's. They are the best". They are... More
