If you REALLY REALLY REALLY love DENSE pound cake then this is the bakery for you. But if you are looking for a bakery that serves up more than one flavor or even type of cake then keep looking. My husband and his family grew up on Stocks. We got our wedding cake there and only his family actually ate it. To me the icing is really gritty and sugary, not my thing at all.
Lived in the Phila area for a very long time. Grew up on Stocks and 2 yrs ago moved to Arizona. Visited Phila a week ago and of course the first stop was STOCKS for some butter cookies and pound cake. Sent some back home to AZ and shared w/friends they said they never tasted anything that good. I guess this is a good enough reason to visit real soon.
It's Christmas time, I'm heading to Stocks from NJ, this morning for 6 pound cakes and 2 butter cakes. Great gifts, and when my wife sends me, I alsways get enough for us to keep one.
A cooking tip. Sllce a piece of poundcake about as thick as bread, pop it in the toaster and add a little good butter. Nothing is better
Remember CASH only
Love that pound cake. As a 63 year old who grew up in the Northeast and only left the Philadelphia 3 years ago I was shocked to learn that Lehigh Avenue was now in the Northeast. Did an earthquake move it?
Important to know, if it hasn't been mentioned already - this is a CASH ONLY merchant - no credit or MAC cards - and bring extra cash because you always see something else you like when you go there! You will never have another cake as good.
