Today we’d like to introduce you to J Lynne Wilson Jenkins.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My mother taught me how to bake cakes when I was a teen. However, I laid down my spatula after I left home and many years passed before I resumed baking. About 15 years ago, I started baking my family Christmas tradition, Fruit Cake. Last year, when everything shut down when COVID hit, I found myself with extra time on my hands, so I started baking pound cakes, sharing them with friends and posting on social media. As more friends and family started asking me to bake cakes, I decided to launch the business in May 2020. The business has grown steadily beyond my immediate friends and family. It’s a blessing to see how my cakes evoke fond childhood memories for my customers – memories of the cakes their mothers & grandmothers baked. And I love when my cakes make my customers happy – be it for a birthday, anniversary or just because they have a taste for something sweet.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It kind of took off and I had to scramble to get organized and get all of the supplies and equipment I needed. Things are smoothing out now and I’m getting into a rhythm.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Pound Cake Pleasures?
Baking moist & dense Pound Cakes is all we do at Pound Cake Pleasures. We pride ourselves on serving our customers delectable 100% Made-From-Scratch Pound Cakes using only fresh, quality ingredients. We offer full and personal size pound cakes in over 20 flavors. Our best seller is our To-LIVE-For Red Velvet Pound Cake. We also offer shipping and delivery options. Providing excellent customer service is a top priority. We give our customers the personal touch of a call, email or text confirming their order.

We believe that “people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God” Ecclesiastes 3:13.
Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
It’s important that the customer has a great experience with the cake using their senses – smell, taste, sight and touch. I feel that providing a quality product combined with great customer service is what will continue to make Pound Cake Pleasures successful. We bake LOVE into every cake.
