If you are not one of the growing number of San Carlans following the Jett Cakes Truck around town, you may be, soon. The San Carlos based custom cake business was started by, Marianne Jett, a San Carlos resident and Brittan Acres parent. Marianne says she got the idea for the business after attending culinary school in San Francisco and making kids’ birthday cakes on the side. She then took the next big step of purchasing a truck and transforming her love of baking into a gourmet food truck business in September of 2009.
Jett says that a clear favorite is the Red Velvet Cupcake. The current seasonal favorite is her Organic Strawberry Cupcake. These are just a few of the many tasty treats you will find on the Jett Cakes Truck. Jett also says that cupcakes are clearly her best seller, but she also sells cookies and cakes.
Jett Cakes has developed a following and has wisely used social media to highlight current truck stops such as Concert in the Park, Oracle and the increasingly popular Cupcake Happy Hour at Cowabunga on Laurel Street, which occurs every Thursday during Hot Harvest Nights from 4-6pm.
Jett Cakes tries to use organic and local ingredients whenever possible. Aside from their normal stops, they are available for parties. A link to their website can be found by clicking here. A link to their Facebook page can be found by clicking here.
