Sheri and Jan in 2007.

Hi my name is Sheri and I am the founder of Jan’s Carrot Cakes. Our delicious carrot cake recipe was originally created by my mother Jan many years ago. Growing up this was our “special occasions” cake for family gatherings and holidays. Mom was often asked for her carrot cake recipe by party guests, but she would politely decline saying it was a “family secret”. In 2008, before she went home to be with the Lord, mom handed down the recipe to me, making me promise never to give it out.   “I promise mom.” Very soon after, it became my mission to share the joys of this cake with my community, and as a way of honoring mom and as a tribute to her, Jan’s Carrot Cake Co. was born. I am passionate about giving back to the community, so 10% of every cake sale is donated to a local or national outreach. It’s a great joy to be able to support the community and these organizations. From my family to yours, may your palette be pleased with every bite and may you feel the love that goes into every cake we make.


Customer Testimonial
If you want to go back in time when fresh ingredients and baking from scratch was in style, I encourage you to try Jans Carrot Cakes! These cakes are rich, flavorful and fabulous! Not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy your craving. My personal favorite is the carrot cake topped with lemon curd. OMG! The lemon in the curd is bursting with flavor and the icing is perfect. You will not go wrong with one of these cakes for any occasion.

For a person who never liked carrot cake this cake has changed my world! I tried it being very skeptical in the beginning. Now, I am a firm believer in Jan’s Carrot Cakes. And since I’ve tried her cake I’ve tried others just to compare, hands down hers is the best! You cannot hardly tell the difference between the Gluten-free and regular. If you have ever been a skeptic I believe this may change your mind!

I have been a repeat consumer of Jan’s Carrot Cakes for years and you will be too, one cake and you will be hooked. Hands-down this is the best carrot cake you’ll ever taste. Jan’s Carrot Cakes are different because they actually have a wholesome texture and are full of rich hand selected ingredients, pure perfection. And even better yet is the choice of flavors that are offered, to my sweet tooth it is a total culinary masterpiece.

These cakes make everyone happy at family and business events where I've had them. I love seeing the surprised faces on non-carrot cake people, who can't believe how good they are! The blueberry-topped cake and the fall-flavors spiced cake are my personal favorites, but the original is pretty perfect too.
Christine H.
The carrot cake is delicious. We have tried the Lemon curd and the Traditional carrot cakes. Looking forward to trying the Blueberry. My husband has a birthday in September and he has asked for the Lemon curd. The sizes are great for a party. Try Jan's Carrot Cakes as she makes the best!
