Diana posted something on your Wall and wrote: "Kudos to Janie's Cakes. I ordered one last week. It was my first, we got the Italian Jane and it was THE BEST! I know I will order many more. Thank you for exceeding my expectations. I'll be ordering one for my sister in OHIO. Saw you on Texas Country Reporter." - Diana from Gainesville, Texas.


“I impulse-purchased one of your pound cakes from Whole Foods last December. It was wonderful!” - Vicki W.


“I wanted to share with you my delight with my first Plain Jane! My husband surprised me with your pound cake that he had delivered yesterday. He learned about you on a recent Texas Country Reporter episode. I appreciate and value home baked goods and your pound cake was wonderful and the packaging was darling. My favorite gift to give or receive are made from scratch cakes. It made my day! Thank you.” - Tonie B. from Texas


“This is the second order we placed with your company. It arrived packaged in such a beautiful box and the cake was wonderful. Thank you for doing such a good job and making a wonderful product that anyone would love to receive.” - Glenda from Texas

“I enjoyed your Chocolate Amour cake today immensely. The cake's texture, the silky but substantial icing, and the freshness were unbelievable. And, a pretty cake is nice to receive. And, the chocolate icing in the center was heavenly. Our cousins in Tyler send these delicious and beautifully packaged (blue and yellow with the happy stripes) cakes to our Grandmother. We've also enjoyed the Italian Jane. I have no doubt that the lemon curd cake would be amazingly good, too. What a nice treat this was for Mother's Day for both of us. Thanks for making such a good product. When I looked at the ingredients, I thought the cake would be good, but surely the recipe and especially the cook has everything to do with it. Keep on baking!” - Shirley P. from Georgia

From the mother of a soldier in Iraq - “I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for all you and Janie's Cakes did to give my son Luke a little taste of home on his birthday.  Until today, I didn't know if he even received the cake or if it was lost somewhere in the mail.  Luke e-mailed me and said..(these are his exact words) "Yes, I got the cake and it was awesome!  They sent this Cinnamon Butter Cream that was freaking ridiculous!   You have never had anything so good, it smelled like Christmas.  I gave pieces of the cake to like 15 guys, they all loved it."  Words can't begin to describe how truly grateful I am for all you did.   Again, from a Mother's heart, I thank all of you.” - Cheryl F.


“Your cake was a hit!  I will be ordering more cakes and passing on your web site to my friends.  Love to find quality!” - Stephanie Z.

“Just got a comment from the cake I just sent....He said it was the best he has ever had! He was impressed with the packaging. So let me say thank you, and I will send my Christmas gift list after Thanksgiving. After I get everyone a cake, then I will try one myself!”
- Rosemary L.

“You must receive emails all the time but I wanted to let you know that you have the BEST cakes I have ever had. The cakes are packaged well and always received fresh and ready to eat. The only complaint I have is the pounds that it puts on my back end (because I cannot just eat one slice). I order the cakes for special events or holidays. Everyone in my family loves them. I really like the fact that I am supporting a company here in Texas. Keep up the good work!” - Susan L.


“We just had our 2nd or 3rd Janie's cake. My cousin and his wife bring one for our family Thanksgivng celebration on the Colorado River. This time we had Tart Jane--absolutely wonderful. This one was in honor of my parents 68th wedding Anniversary.” - Janie from Eagle Lake

“I saw the Texas Country Reporter story about Janie's Cakes and I ordered 3 Italian Janes. All three were a huge hit. One of my nieces got a taste of the cake at her mom's house and she asked for one for her 20th birthday next week. That's all she wanted and it was delivered yesterday. Needless to say, she was more than thrilled! Thank you Janie for all that you do!!!!!!! We feel very fortunate to have Janie's Cakes in our lives and have shared them with lots of friends and family across the country. We look forward to many more orders and many more cakes for us.” - Cindy S.


“Your cakes are fabulous!!!” - Stacey


“Some Texas friends bring back Janie's cakes when they visit home. They recently introduced us to your wonderful product. The homemade nature of your cakes reminded me of one my old maid aunt used to make. She would make her own delicious pound cake in a stem pan and then pour the hole full of homemade caramel frosting. When you run out of varieties, there's a new one to try.” - Bob L. from Virginia


“Hi, Janie. I am currently serving in Afghanistan with the national Guard Unit located there in Tyler. My grandmother's Sundayschool class sent me one of your pound cakes.

“Simple, elegant, delicious, terrific!  Janie's Cakes does a terrific job with your all-natural, made from scratch pound cakes. (Yum!)  I was very impressed by your very informative and beautifully designed web site.  I was astounded by your entire presentation, from your fillings to your signature yellow and white striped box with periwinkle ribbon.  Your unique branding and nationwide services tell a fascinating story, especially considering that proceeds from sales directly benefit your Rockin' C Ranch.  Your commitment to giving back is truly admirable.”  - Daren from Texas

"We ordered a "Plain Jane" pound cake two weeks ago, turned around and ordered our second one last week and today we're back for two more! It seems too simple to say what everyone else says but it's so true...this is the best tasting pound cake we've EVER eaten. It's delectable and moist to the last bite. Nothing can compare. Grandma's didn't taste this good! It has that "something-something" ingredient that's addictive. Once you try it...you just can't seem to get enough. After sharing some of our (mine and my husband's) second cake with my family my Uncle Mike says 'This cake is so good, it could be dangerously addictive!' That's truly how I felt! Now that we've introduced my whole family to Janie's Cakes...my husband and I will continue to be happy, lifelong customers sharing your cakes with the ones we love. Thank you so much for all the love, caring and natural ingredients you put in to your mouthwatering masterpieces."  - Tonya M. from South Carolina 


"This cake is so good, it could be dangerously addictive!"  - Uncle Mike from South Carolina


“I read about your cakes in Southern Living Magazine a while back. I purchased the Saucy Jane with chocolate filling today at Whole Foods in Plano, TX. The cake is incredible! Thank you for selling your cakes in our area. Besides the incredible flavor, the packaging and instructions on serving make it worth every penny we spent on it. I'm just glad I still have my gym membership to work off the pounds I'll put on eating it.”  - S. H.


“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will be definitely finding out where my local Whole Foods Market is to get a Saucy Jane. I had a tiny taste of your cake and have been dying ever since to have the whole cake! It was awesome. I just hope there's a Saucy Jane waiting for me when I get there.”  :) - Kris P.


“I received my delicious lemon ‘Tart Jane’ cake via Fed-Ex this afternoon. My daughter ordered it for me last week after checking with you regarding artificial colors. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to find such a nice treat that will not send me to the hospital due to a food allergy. I am looking forward to my next order.”  - Jerry from Houston


“I think your cakes are wonderful! I send them to my mom back east and she just enjoys them all to herself!”  - Monica from Montana
