The Gingered Peach in Lawrence, New Jersey is without a doubt one of the best pastries in the entire Tri-State area.
Starting in 2011, Joanne Canady-Brown launched the Let Them Eat Cake Bake Shop before revitalizing the business and introducing The Gingered Peach to the world, delivering unique and exceptional baked goods that will bring shame to every baker in the world. House.

Make sure you watch out for loyal customers rushing into the store at any time to get their sugar fix. One quick glance at these delicious pastries and you will know that you will discover a fantastic land full of flavors still tasted, alluring chocolates that beg you to buy, and savory pastries that make up for the whole sweet menu perfectly.
It all starts with the cinnamon rolls. Unwrapping her diapers is a sultry experience, getting sweeter and sweeter, until you find her glorious, gooey center. The center, soft and sticky. The moment you inhale this delight, you realize that you are already too deep, never able to pull yourself out of the clutches of the ginger peach.
After recovering from the cinnamon bun, it’s time to venture to the giant cupcake case filled with a wide array of flavors and colors. Starting with the basics, there’s the vanilla cupcake. The chewy flavor and luxurious sweet taste are perfectly presented by a perfectly whipped white frosting top.
Ruth Anderson, a fifth semester computer information systems student at MCCC, says, “It reminds me of vanilla cookies. It is so delicious.
The vanilla cupcake isn’t too sweet, but you just need to make your mouth water for the next chocolate surprise.
Chocolate cupcakes are a highlight for anyone who wants to try this dangerous desert. The chocolate here is deep and rich in flavor, but the hallmark of this delicious cupcake is the velvety frosting and the chewy cake. It’s deceptively decadent and up to this point has to be the best pastry to date. It is absolutely to die for.
First-semester computer science student Eesa Toheed takes her time on the chocolate cupcake, gulping down the rich dessert with her eyes rolled back and with a deep exhale.
Toheed said, “I feel great, like a bump has filled me inside.”
Some classics to check out too should be chocolate chip cookies and molasses cookies. The chocolate chip cookie is basic, great if you want it but nothing special.
On the other hand, there are their amazing molasses cookies. It’s soft with the perfect mellow texture. If you’re lucky you’ll get a molasses cookie that’s so sweet you’ll swear it’s the best treat out there.
Of course, The Gingered Peach also uses a lot of seasonal flavors in its menu. In the fall, their pumpkin scones instantly become a favorite.
“I can definitely taste the pumpkin,” says Ben Levitt, major of MCCC Communication, also a VOICE reporter, adding, “I like the cherry on it; it really compliments him. This is really good. “
The pumpkin scone is peace before the storm that is the flavor of this bakery. It has subtle flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and other hot spices cooked into its tender, succulent core.

What came next was my favorite dessert, the olive oil cake. To put it simply, this cake is the most elegant of all the pastries. The smell of the cake is spectacular, the rich olive oil and lemon invade the body, causing a euphoric experience that makes it impossible for any guest not to eat so slowly. The lemon frosting dances across the tongue to the perfect beat of the creamy olive oil, creating a cohesive flavor that lightly tickles the senses.
Gingered Peach has concocted what can be the perfect contrast to many of their sweet desserts, the Trenton Volcano. Pork roll, spinach and cheese wrapped in a brioche and topped with all the bagel seasoning, what more could you ask for? The salted pork immediately takes jurisdiction over the pallet, bombarding the tongue with overwhelming flavor, the spinach competes with the pork, battling for dominance in your mouth, and the cheese makes its way into your taste buds. All of these flavors fight for attention, but their collision only enhances the flavor. It’s definitely worth the name of a Trenton volcano because it’s the best thing that ever erupted in my mouth!
At this point, only one dessert remains worthy of crowning all the others, the Caramel Crack! There’s a reason this dessert is called crack, because this caramel coated bun melts on the tongue, causing the brain to stop time. To hell with calories, this dessert is dangerously addicting.
Now, at the end of this exploration of The Gingered Peach, my knees flex under the weight of their culinary masterpieces. Coming out of this divine experience, I only realize one thing, I can’t wait for my next dose to decrease my lack of sugar.
