Custom Cakes at The Hudson Cakery

The Hudson Cakery in Weehawken, NJ

You sick of the cake options in Hoboken? Does the Cake Boss make you nauseous? Well – right up the road at 1816 Willow Avenue in Weehawken is a custom cake shop called The Hudson Cakery. Most folks probably don’t notice it either because they’re driving too fast, texting or had issues reading the rather small font on the front of the building.

“The Hudson Cakery is an upscale custom cake boutique with an emphasis on TASTE. We bake-to-order with only the freshest ingredients for a delicious addition to your special day. Our cakes taste as good as they look!

We specialize in modern designs but we are open to anything you want to create to act as the centerpiece of your event. Every cake we design, we tailor to your needs – from mild to wild – we treat each one as a work of art.”

About Jennifer Bunce – The Hudson Cakery Head Chef

Head Chef & Owner Jennifer Bunce has loved baking (and eating!) desserts, especially cake, since she was a child. However, only recently did she turn her passion into a full time business. Post-college, she found success in Event Planning and Public Relations. But after 5 years of the corporate grind, she knew she had to find a “sweeter” way of living. She decided to turn her hobby of baking and cake decorating into a career so she attended the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC.

After graduating with high honors in Pastry Arts, she interned with famed bakery, Confetti Cakes with Elisa Strauss. She has also studied with Kate Sullivan at CakePower, International Sugar Artist Lorraine McKay as well as cake decorating pro Chef Toba Garrett. After leaving a pastry chef position at Sweetiepie Restaurant in NYC, Jennifer established The Hudson Cakery in May 2009.

Nevermind. Hours are by-appointment only.


Terrific! Good for her. I can’t wait to take a walk up there and try stuff.


Great to have another cake option besides the Cake Boss. I bet their rent is much more affordable than in Hoboken, too!


Does anyone have any idea on the prices? I have several events coming up and it would be great to do custom cakes, but we don’t have a big budget (especially with three events to do).

By the way, I walked by Carlo’s one morning recently and there was no line, so I stepped in. What a disappointment – they don’t do boston creme donuts anymore, the black and white cookies seemed a little smaller and had a strange after-taste to them, the cannolis were smaller, hardly filled, and up in price. In fact, my niece said the cannolis in Shoprite are better. I picked up a beautifully decorated cupcake, and my niece couldn’t eat it. Lovely, yes. Taste, none. And, everything was top price. Obviously the big lines are tourists. I won’t go there again.
