CJs Bakery

A note from all of us at CJ’s Bakery

CJ’s Bakery proudly served Black Diamond and surrounding communities since opening its doors on September 11, 1995.  Just three months shy of 20 years, we closed our doors on Saturday, June 13, 2015.

We thank all of you who supported us over the years.  We’ve enjoyed serving you and this community. We’ve made a lot of new friends and we’ve shared in numerous ‘special occasions’ with many of you.

We take with us a lot of memories.  We thank you for those.

Our Story and Tradition

The tradition of CJ’s Bakery had its beginning in the 1930s when Myron Storer Sr. opened a bakery in the Olympic Peninsula town of Port Townsend, WA.  Myron knew his craft and passed the artistry, knowledge and tradition of quality baking on to his son Myron Jr., who later opened his own bakery, the Fantastic Cake Box in Kent, WA.  Eventually, Myron Jr. earned a world-wide reputation for his baking skills and award-winning cake artistry.  From the simplest birthday cake to a 32ft tall, 1600 lb cake celebrating a new TV broadcast tower, the Cake Box filled nearly any request for a custom cake creation.

Working with his father, Jim Storer learned the business from the ground up, training at his father’s bakery under some of the world’s best cake artists and refined his skills at other bakeries before opening CJ’s Bakery in 1995 on the Maple Valley Highway in Black Diamond, WA.  CJ’s Bakery specialized in custom and traditional cake designs for all occassions.  Whether customers were looking for a traditional or contemporary design, CJ’s Bakery brought their imagination to life in a custom-designed cake creation.
