JB Cakes: A Sweet Addition to the Neighborhood

If you’re looking to wet your whistle late at night in Germantown and Schnitzelburg, there are a plethora of options, but if your sweet tooth beckons, there aren’t too many places to quell the craving. That is, until JB Cakes opened up shop in 2015 at 1101 Goss Avenue.

The bakery opens early, at 7 am (8 am on Sundays), just as you would expect. Yet, unlike other confectionary establishments, JB Cakes is open well into the evening, serving cupcakes to the masses until 8 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 pm on Thursday, and 11 pm on Friday and Saturday. Essentially serving cupcakes any time that craving hits you, day or night.

“JB Cakes is a place you can stop by for a bite in the morning, order cupcakes for a party or dinner, even order a cake for a birthday,” says owner Jared Langdon. “At the same time, we are a great option for dessert, somewhere to satisfy your sweet tooth between dinner and drinks. We do see quite a bit of business later in the evening, which is great!”

Their long hours aren’t the only thing that makes them unique. When you enter the small shop, you’ll notice all the cupcakes are naked, absent of icing. This isn’t due to a new food movement or lazy bakers, instead, customers are invited to craft their own cupcake creation. You simply pick out one of the cupcake flavors in the cabinet and choose from about 10 icing options. You can even add toppings to make a truly decadent treat. Full-size cupcakes cost about $2 and minis run about 80 cents each.



The fun flavor options are virtually endless: ginger spice with caramel cream cheese frosting and graham cracker crumbles, strawberry cake and banana cream cheese, chocolate and coffee butter cream with chocolate drizzle, red velvet with white chocolate cream cheese and crushed peppermint sprinkles. If you prefer the comfort of a classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting, they have that too. (Click here for a list of their flavors.)

Various cupcakes on display.

JB Cakes bakes about 600 to 800 cupcakes every week. Along with cupcakes, they also bake cookies and special order cakes. You can also find JB Cakes for sale at the nearby Lydia House.




Since settling down in Germantown, JB Cakes has loved the neighborhood and having the opportunity to grow along with it (three of the four owners live in Germantown). “So much is happening on Goss, we are very excited to see what the street will look like in the next few years,” said Langdon. They are excited for more commerce to come to the area, but they hope the neighborhood’s charm remains intact as more development moves in.

JB Cakes occupies a building that has a long, interesting history on Goss Avenue – a history that sheds some light on how our streets today were formed.

The building at 1101 Goss Avenue was built in 1893 by Frederick C. "Fred" Heck. Fred was born in Germany and immigrated to the US in 1878. He married Pauline Marie Schoening and they had 7 children. In 1892, Fred purchased 60 feet of property on the North side of Goss Avenue from Ferdinand Scharre, Jr. for $1,000. Fred was a butcher by trade and constructed the butcher shop/grocery store just one door down from John Taphorn's new saloon (currently Four Pegs), which was built in 1892. An empty space between the two businesses held a wood frame stable until 1900, when Fred sold the small lot to the city in order to connect Spratt Street to Goss Avenue. Fred, his wife, and children ran the grocery business at the location from 1893 to until 1923, when Fred sold the building to Richard E. Fishback, a grocer. Fishback operated the business only a short time before selling it to Piggly Wiggly in 1928. Piggly Wiggly remained at the corner of Goss and Spratt until 1942. The building was rented or vacant during the war years and was adopted as the home of the Southend Democrat Club in 1949. The Democrat Club move to 907 Goss Avenue a few years later. The building bounced around owners, remaining a rental property, yet without any commercial businesses truly taking hold of the space.

We look forward to JB Cakes spreading their roots and becoming a part of our history! We hope they’ll be open long enough to try every flavor combination and that will probably take a very long time!

Germantown Mill Lofts // Holiday Happenings // Tips from LMPD

Preview of the Germantown Mill Lofts
This past Saturday, a portion of the new Germantown Mill Lofts were available for neighborhood residents and potential GML residents to view. The "Warehouse Building" open for preview is the smaller building at the back of the development that has 16 loft and studio style apartments. The first level, boasting eight bi-level, open floor plans, rent in the ballpark of about $1,050 per month. The floor above it also has eight units, but units are much smaller compared to the ground level. They rent for about $650 per month. Units in this building are almost fully occupied.

Underhill Associates were true to their word: the historical and architectural charm has been preserved while providing modern amenities. Exposed beams, brick, and duct work blend seamlessly with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, barn-style doors (great for small spaces), marble tiled bathrooms, and fresh drywall. The ground floor is poured concrete, while the building's original wood floors can be found on higher levels. Despite their age, the wood is gorgeous and full of character.

It's important to note that an individual (or few) have been walking around Schnitzelburg, Shelby Park, Old Louisville, and surrounding areas at night and looking for unlocked cars. Dozens of reports have been noted over the past few months. Thieves are searching for money and electronics, so be sure to not keep anything valuable in your vehicle and to keep your vehicle locked at all times. If you see something suspicious, call LMPD (502.574.7111).

Schnitzelburg Tree Planting - SATURDAY!

Saturday, November 14th
Swiss Hall (719 Lynn St.)
10 am

We are so very excited to have Schnitzelburg chosen as the neighborhood to receive 150 trees this Fall through Louisville Grows/Love Louisville Trees! Not only are trees aesthetically appealing, but they keep us cool (and block wind in the cooler months), stabilize the soil, absorb water runoff, help control noise pollution, and clean our air! Trees can also increase your property value!

Schnitzelburg is the 6th neighborhood to receive trees through Love Louisville Trees (others include German-Paristown, Shawnee, and Shelby Park), and the organization will be planting their 1,000th tree in Schnitzelburg on Saturday!

Volunteers have been canvassing the neighborhood for the past couple of months looking for homeowners who would like a free tree for their front yard or easement (backyards are considered, mostly for large, canopy trees). If you haven't received a knock on your door, you may have received a door hanger.


Whether or not you are a resident of Schnitzelburg, or you are receiving a tree, we invite you to volunteer with us on Saturday. While it may sound like a pretty laborious task planting 150 trees, it is actually really fun work!



Wondering how it's all done? After breakfast, volunteers are sorted into groups. Each group does an initial planting together at a site to learn the proper way to plant before they are broken into smaller groups. Each small group is lead by a Citizen Forrester, an individual who is a veteran tree planter and has completed training to become tree steward. Groups are typically given trees in close proximity to each other so you can walk from site to site.  Trees will already be delivered to the site and a spray painted circle identifies where the tree will go (811 is called before the planting to mark the underground utilities). Once the group is finished planting (~5 trees per group) they go back to the staging site to have a warm lunch!

If you are interested in volunteering, please email Valerie Magnuson at valerie@louisvillegrows.org!

From The Schnitzelburg Tree Planting Facebook event page:

Join us for our 7th Neighborhood Planting Event!! We'll be planting 150 trees in the Schnitzelburg/Merriwether neighborhood and need 150 volunteers to help us. 

Schedule:
10:00-10:15 Volunteers arrive for check-in and Heine Brothers Coffee and bagels.
10:15-10:30 Following a brief orientation, volunteers and Citizen Foresters head out to their planting zones.
10:30-1:00 Tree planting demo and zone planting
1:00 All return to the staging site for lunch!

All our volunteers can expect certain things from their experience with Louisville Grows, in return, Louisville Grows has certain expectations for every volunteer.

Our volunteers have the right to:

  • Be provided with an introduction to Louisville Grows
  • Be treated as an individual whose time and talent is valuable to the organization
  • Receive training for their tasks and an explanation of how this work relates to the larger mission of Louisville Grows
  • Be provided with a safe working environment

Our volunteers have the responsibility to:
  • Be sincere in their offer of service to Louisville Grows
  • Carry out their work reliably and to the best of their ability
  • Accept the guidance and decisions of LG staff and/or Citizen Foresters
  • Ask for help when needed

We recommend that you dress in layers. Waterproof outerwear is ideal. Of course, you'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. We'll provide adult-sized gloves, and we recommend wearing sturdy shoes.

Curious about who Love Louisville Trees is and what they do? They sum it up pretty nicely on their website:

"Love Louisville Trees (LLT) provides urban forestry training to build community capacity in urban forest management and stewardship and organizes tree-planting events to assist with the reforestation of Louisville’s neighborhoods. LLT works to educate the public on the benefits of an urban forest, helps to guide neighborhood coordinators in the development of annual tree planting and maintenance events, and provides trees to financially challenged areas in our community. Through encouragement and community engagement, citizens are trained in proper tree selection, planting and on-going maintenance. We understand that for an urban forestry program to be effective we must engage and recruit students, residents, business owners, and all members of our community to take ownership of our urban forest.

The LLT Program was created in response to recent research demonstrating that not only does Louisville have one of the fastest rising heat indices in the USA, but also has a significantly lower level of tree coverage compared to similar cities. Recent tree mortality from invasive pests, storm damage, lack of citizen forestry skills and the absence of a developed city plan has contributed to higher pollution levels, poor storm water management, and barren urban landscapes. We organize tree planting events in neighborhoods near the urban core, where large trees can have the biggest impact as they cool streets by providing shade, purify our air, beautify our streets, and absorb and purify storm water. We also know that trees planted on residential properties can reduce utility bills and raise the value of property, particularly important in low-income neighborhoods where canopy development has often been neglected."

Minutes from the Germantown Mill Lofts Meeting and Steve Magre's Community Meeting

The following minutes have been received from Underhill Associates and Councilman Steve Magre's office, respectively.

Germantown Mill Lofts Neighborhood Meeting
November 2, 2015
1030 Goss Avenue

A neighborhood meeting was held at 1030 Goss Avenue on November 2, 2015 at 5:30 pm. The development team members in attendance included Colin Underhill and Elizabeth Rivers. Colin started the meeting by explaining the meeting's purpose, which was to discuss plans to further the Germantown Mill Lofts project. He explained the plans to convert the former daycare to a restaurant.  He stated that the restaurant would be called Finn's Restaurant and that it would serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Colin then provided an update on the overall project. He stated that the first residents will move in on December 1, 2015.  He explained that the remainder of residents will move to the lofts in phases, and that the project will be completed by May 2016. Colin then opened the meeting up for questions.

One attendee asked about parking, specifically how it may affect residents in the area. She questioned more transparency on the project. She expressed concern that the restaurant may limit the amount of street parking available.  Additionally, she expressed concern that construction is affecting the neighborhood. Mike Morris, president of the Schnitzelburg Area Community Council, recommended that she contact their organization. He stated that the neighborhood group would be able to advocate on her behalf.

Another woman asked about the restaurant's operational hours. Another man asked about the number of parking spots on the property. Colin informed him that there will be 330 parking spots. He informed the attendees that there would be ample parking for residents and restaurant visitors.

Another woman echoed the concerns about parking. Colin explained that, as a developer, he is going to advocate for the neighborhood. He explained that the project will continue to make Germantown special. He explained how the neighbors will benefit from Germantown Mill Lofts.

Mike Morris then explained that he was originally concerned about the parking, however, Mike noted that the property has 30% more parking than the city requires.

One woman asked about the entrance and exit on the property. Colin explained that the specific entrance/exits are required by law.

Another woman explained that parking shouldn't be an issue because Germantown residents walk to restaurants and other nearby businesses. However, she disagreed with the decision to add a restaurant to the area. Colin assured the attendees that the restaurant would not stay open past 11:00 pm.

Another man asked if bottled beer would be served. Colin informed attendees that he would know this once the zoning was approved.

One woman expressed her gratification that it would be a restaurant rather than a bar.

Mike Morris asked if the property would have bicycle racks, and Colin informed the attendees that there are ample bicycle racks.

A number of attendees expressed concern with speeding on Goss Avenue and McHenry Street. Mike Morris informed attendees that the neighborhood association is working with the city on that issue.

Colin then informed the attendees that Germantown Mill Lofts would increase the property values of their homes.

One man, who arrived after the start of the meeting, asked for clarification on the requested zoning classification. Colin explained that the new zoning permit would allow alcoholic sales on the restaurant's patio.

A man then expressed his admiration for the developers taking an older, deteriorating building and turning it into a newer, more functional building. He recommended that the attendees "give it a chance."

Another man asked about security cameras on the property. Colin explained that the property is going to make the area safer.

Colin also explained that the restaurant will be smaller than the average restaurant. This eased many concerns among the attendees.

Colin also explained that the restaurant will be smaller than the average restaurant. This eased many concerns among attendees.

Colin informed the attendees that he would advocate for the area and the neighborhood, in hopes of improving Germantown. One woman expressed appreciation that the development enhanced sidewalk conditions.

Mike Morris said he is happy the developers are Underhill family members. He also explained that the company will do a great job because their reputation is at stake. He also expressed comfort that the developers are a Louisville company.

Colin thanked everyone for attending the meeting. Afterwards, many neighbors stayed to meet Colin and ask additional questions.

Expressed disappointed in homicide issue in community. Puts LMPD in unfair position. Council/Mayor has not addressed it. Gave stats for the past few years during meeting.

Wants Police Summit steered by Mayor and Council and to bring in appropriate people from across the community and make sure funds are available for this.

Provided the homicide and heroine data for D10 during the meeting.

Noted that flooding has impacted D10 and is a consistent problem. Flooding is mainly due to dual runways at the airport.  Referenced MSD ordinance to repair structures. 

Pressed of railroad crossing gates in Buechel, but the FRA moves slowly. City has updated markings and signage and removed a tree for the pages. Project is approved as of today and Norfolk has 12 months to complete the install.

Put the dilapidated Economy Inn in the hot seat with all of the Departments that have oversight and questioned how this place is still allowed to exist. Evidence presented by hotel side is bogus. Stop Work order has been issued. Plans to stay involved with this situation even after leaving office by working with neighborhood association. Needs to be legit or close.

Moved the Camp Taylor Monument to a public location and had to overcome several hurdles in order to accomplish.

Introduced Metro staff.


One question raised about hotel planned for Preston Hwy. Advised that it has been rezoned for the hotel, but it has not moved forward. Advised that it is technically in District 21, Dan Johnson.
