“Best kept secret in NJ!”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

My fiance and I are getting married next year and started shopping around for bakeries to do our cake. We just happened to stumble across Irene's, and thank God we decided to stop in! Her cake was incredible, moist and delicious, the icing was perfect, it was hands down the best cake we had ever tasted.
Don't let her humble store front fool you, it may not seem like there is much going on inside but Irene's cakes are made with real magic.
She was so helpful and gave us a real bargain too. If you're getting married or throwing a birthday party, talk to Irene, you'll be happy you did.

“The best cakes in South Jersey!”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

We have been living in South Jersey for over 20 years now and through the years we have been able to order cakes from all the bakeries in the area for the various special occasions in our family (birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries). We kept trying different bakeries because we couldn't find a truly great cake anywhere. Either they were too sweet, or were dry, or were tasteless. Once we tasted a cake by Irene, we became her happily loyal customers, and have been ever since then.

The cake we first tasted from Irene's was a simple vanilla cake with buttercream icing, but it was remarkable. The cake was moist and delicious. Vanilla cake is simple, but I have never had a vanilla cake as tasty as Irene's. The moist richness of the cake melts in your mouth! The buttercream icing was superb, not too sweet. The cake was also frosted beautifully.

The taste of Irene's cakes is what keeps us coming back. Our family especially loves her triple chocolate cakes -- they have a thick, decadent layer of chocolate filling in between the cake layers. Irene doesn't skimp on the chocolate -- our latest order of a 12-inch triple chocolate cake weighed 14 pounds! Nevertheless, her prices have stayed constant over the years. She really takes pride in creating special, delicious cakes that remain affordable for customers.

Having an Irene's cake is an essential part of our family celebrations. We are very glad that we have such a great place to order cakes and desserts from in our area!

“Delicious”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

Irene made our cake for our wedding in Cape May in August 2010. We were originally going to ask a baker in Cape May but the prices at the bakeries there were unreasonably high and the staff at two shops were rude to us. We found Irene's online, and she worked with us to create a gorgeous beach-themed cake with seashells that worked well with our wedding theme and colors. She even drove the cake to our wedding to Cape May! The cake itself was incredible. So many people at our wedding commented that it was the BEST cake that they had ever had. Irene's buttercream icing is awesome.
