The Sweetest Sweets at Mr. Jones Orphanage
There’s no doubt you’ll find your favorite dessert at Mr. Jones Orphanage. This place is a treasure chest for all things sweet, sugary, and chocolatey! When I visited for the first time, I wanted to try every single dessert. I had to hold back but I was able to try a few customer favorites.
If you are a chocolate lover and can’t help buying a candy bar anytime you go to the store, you’ll definitely want to order a slice of the Kit Kat cake. This cake will make you feel like a giddy kid again. This standard chocolate cake is covered with Kit Kat bars along the outside of it with chocolate M&M’s sprinkled on top. Yep, that’s right, this is a chocolate-on-chocolate cake, and worth every bite.
If you’d prefer a more classic cake, you won’t go wrong by ordering the red velvet cake. If you’ve never had red velvet cake before, there’s luckily nothing extreme about this favorite other than the fact that the cake is dyed red. At Mr. Jones Orphanage, the red velvet cake is soft and spongy with thin layers of cream cheese icing in between. This is an excellent slice to have with one of the espresso lattes.
Another favorite amongst customers is the giant Oreo cake. You’ll notice it when you’re checking out all the other cakes in the case since it looks like a huge Oreo cookie! The chocolate cake creates a sandwich with rich buttermilk icing in between it. I kept trying to dunk my bites into my glass of milk, like I used to when I was a kid!
If you’re not too big on cake but you still want to try a few sweets, there are other tasty treats on the dessert menu. When I come back, I definitely want to try the fruit tarts and one of the homemade pies. If you decide to come to Mr. Jones Orphanage on a hot day, be sure to check out their list of milkshakes.
