It’s always a delight to walk into Classic Cake in Short Hills, Cherry Hill and have so many delicious treats well organized in the window. Little kids’ mouths begin to water as they beg their parents to buy them a cupcake with their favorite TV show character on it. As the holiday season approaches, the rounded challah and the Jewish apple cake come back! But when you walk into the store, you may wonder what do I order? What are the best sellers during this season?
“The most popular cookies would be chocolate chip, raspberry linzer, and the dipped short bread cookie.” Said Lorie Goldsmith, an employee at Classic Cake.
They also sell an assortment of breakfast items such as scones and croissants that are very popular for a quick bite in the morning. To accommodate gluten allergies, there are many gluten free choices. However, most are made in the standard facility, which could be problematic for those hyper-sensitive to gluten. Classic Cake carries one gluten free cheesecake, tested and certified to be gluten-free and is prepared in a gluten free facility.
For holidays such as Christmas, the “Santa Cake” which is a vanilla cake with a picture of Santa on it is one of the best. As for Easter, they are known for their “Easter Eggs” which is a pound cake in the shape of an Easter egg. For Rosh Hashanah, the fruit topped cheesecake is definitely on the menu as one of the favorites.
As for customers with restrictions on flour, Lori recommends the chocolate flourless cake. This cake initially became popular during Passover but the demand for it was so high that they decided to keep is all year-round.
“The chocolate flourless cake became so popular that we now sell it 12 months of the year.” Lori said.
People often wonder what happens to the left overs since baked goods have a limited shelf life and can quickly turn stale. At the end of the day, the owners do a variety of things with the unpurchased items. This process helps under privileged families who don’t always have enough to eat.
“Bread goes to the Jewish Federation on a daily basis [and] the Soup Kitchen of Camden picks up refrigerated items every other day.” Lori said.
Each evening, just prior to closing, Classic Cake runs a special on any remaining breakfast items. During the last 30 minutes prior to closing, customers can enjoy a breakfast item at half price. So if you need a good excuse to satisfy your sweet tooth whether you are a new customer or returning costumer, enjoy this great discount!
