absolutely stolen recipes from a bakery in queens. mario and sal's pastry shoppe. R.I.P Salvatore Timoneri. we know you meant well, but the evil hearts in this world took advantage of your heart of gold. I hope the people that stole your dream to make your kids happy will choke on what they know they have stolen. I enjoyed your your pastries for years when i lived in flushing and the fun times with the Italian music every Sunday morning.

R.I.P Sal Timoneri .. Mio Zio Bello ...We miss you and still cannot believe you are no longer with us.

Jason you hit it on the mark with the evil people theme ...my uncle had many evil people in his life..I hope those people rot and never get to enjoy what my uncle had built and was so drastically taken away from him by evil evil people .... but I know the Lord will prevail and those people who hurt him will suffer dearly...just wish I could witness it....you know who you are...

I have been putting off commenting on this website for quite some time now due to all the challenges and shock of my fathers death in this past year of my family’s life. I would first like to start by thanking my incredibly loving family member’s that have given so much support and opened every part of there loving hearts to us to help us through these incredibly hard times. Secondly I would like thank of our dedicated long time employees that my brother Angelo I had grown up with through so many important years of our childhood well into adulthood. Last but not least I will never forget all my great memories of all our loyal long time customers of Mario And Sal’s Pastry Shoppe. My father and family all have a very special place in our hearts for all of you and the family like atmosphere that we were able make at our home away from home…In fact these memories give me inspiration to strive for more in life and I hope with all my heart that it does the same for all of you.
I would like the time now to set some rumors and hearsay that you may or may not of heard straight. I will try to explain everything to the best of my knowledge but please keep in mind this is still very hard for me to do even if I am just writing at this moment.
Eleven years ago at the young age of fourteen (my brother nineteen) my father , brother and I started our usual Saturday morning routine at the bakery when my father had suddenly fell very ill. My first indication that he wasn’t well surprisingly wasn’t his very pale face but the fact that he was un-willing to finish his usual bread making routine. It was only minutes after this that I was carrying my father up the basement steps while my brother had to make a frightening phone call to the paramedics explaining that my father was suffering from a heart attack. Thank god he had survived that horribly traumatizing experience for us all. However since then (whether known to you or not)my father had suffered from very ill health…It was this alone that had led to many future decisions and false relationships….

My father had hoped for a peaceful early retirement for some time ever since his horrible experience. However my father being the emotionally inverted person that he always was hadn’t made it known to many people that he had future goals of accomplishing this retirement in his home town of Italy to accomplish many dreams he always had as a young child in Sicily facing tough financial times. Making a very long story short however he had eventually realized on his accord that he could not turn back the hands of time and made the decision to come back to America and try to re-capture what he STILL HAD in the first place. The love of his family, the respect of TRUE friends, and most of all…a loving environment. I hope with out going into much detail this can give you an idea of my father’s confusing state of mind at the time, especially the fact that all his loved one’s hoped he would finally be able to resolve his predicament by maybe experiencing this on his own with all of his family’s support..
Nevertheless my father being the strong willed independent business person he was decided to move on and re-capture what he once had by opening up another successful bakery. He just might of very well been successful in this venture too if not for his largest weakness in life witch was determining true friends from false one’s or to put it in a better term “Money Hungry Vulture’s”. See my father’s only second weakness to this was his ignorance on his health issues but to other’s, especially those with ill intentions it would be very noticeable…My father being the go getter he always was planned on opening up a new location however also felt obligated to help old friends that he had not had any relations with for over fifteen years because in the goodness of his heart he thought he could help other’s while helping himself. Needless to say my father worked hard to help teach these so-called friends his long time traditional recipes, business sense, and un-spoken for loans through a hand shake rather than signatures because he was just that trusting and willing to help open there copy-cat business.
I truly believe Everybody deserves the benefit of the doubt so I was willing to think this way until the un-thinkable happened and my father had passed away from cardiac arrest and none of these associates of his that claimed to be good friends never showed up to his funeral nor even felt the need to explain how much he helped there business ventures through his good heart or even his personal finances that he had worked so hard for…poof they were gone just like that the second he passed…. I’m not one to mention names but there’s a bakery in New Jersey that goes by the name SAL’S PASTRY SHOPPE… Isn’t that interesting?? they even amazingly use all of our family’s traditional 32 year old recipes… Maybe it’s just coincidence right?..
I would like confirm now that I am not slandering anybody or any one specific person. I am just simply displaying my thoughts on life and how cruel it can be.
I truly believe in In god and I know that God believes in the overall good of people especially those who speak the truth and struggle in life. This is also why I know that those who receive stolen assets will not live to enjoy them…Not to mention it has only lit a fire under my ass to keep pushing on to the next level in life and keep prospering until I have finally reached my goal and have given back to my family what we once had and will have again.
I thank all of you for hearing me out and miss you all!
P.S.- look me up on face book Fran…I really appreciate the comment cousin..

Why would you deny knowing someone ? Why would you say you never met him? You came to the hospital to see him. I met you and I know you were there. We spoke about baking and what you knew how to do and vice versa. Why do you deny knowing someone ? I could understand the confusion about this hearsay above, but I am not one to point fingers with no proof. I am curios however why you would deny knowing someone you went to see while he was dieing in the hospital. Did he do something to you to make you feel like you need to say you don't know him or maybe is there another reason why you are saying you don't know him....... Either way you lied on the internet.

I've seen your photo and i've seen you at the hospital....denial won't get you anywhere.. besides if your a true baker you should now just as well as i do all you have to do is look at somebody else's product to know whether it's your recipe or not. All your shit is a knockoff of what Mario and Sal's had made for years....so watch your mouth and stop talking because every word you type has you looking even more like a low life disrespectful individual.

As a close personal friend to the Timoneri family I can firmly say that the short prick in the middle is the one who was at that hospital during Sal's last night here on earth (may he rest in peace) You may ask how I know this, I simply know this because that is a nightmare that no son or daughter can ever forget! I also am obliged to say one more thing otherwise i feel as though i have let my good friend sal down and that is the simple fact that "those who prosper on the on the vulnerable will not prosper in this life or the next" Remember these words Sal from sal's pastry shoppe and don't ever forget that god will keep his word in the after life for you, witch means he'll be receiving help down here from another power as u may call it. good luck with your business venture sal, you have had much time to build this business in peace haven't you?? who knows you just may have another ten, or twenty years of good business, health, and peace...but that can all change on the most un-expected of mornings while you open those gates for business in the early AM hours right? but again i will say, who knows? may u and your family receive all that they TRULY deserve.
Sincerely, A Future Acquaintance

I have to admit that when I saw Sal's advertisement in the Route 9 shopper, the cakes looked AMAZING. When I went to the shoppe to order a custom made cake for my daughter's christening, I spent a couple of hundred dollars on what I thought was going to be a breath-taking cake. Well, when it was delivered..it wasn't in a box or covered..it was in the trunk of a friggin car!!! The cake was less then impressive. It barely resembled what I had asked for. Further, the cake was dry....very dry. What a complete waste. I had 150 guests at my daughters party and everyone had something to say about the texture of the cake. I was very disappointed. I ended up throwing th damn cake out. Never again will I ever order anything from this place again. And I'm not the only one, slowly word is spreading around Jackson about their "service" and about this "copy cat" thing. Only wish I would have heard about this before I went to them instead of after!

Are you people friggen kidding me? 1st off to whoever the jerks are that are saying that sal is this guy that you seen at your fathers death bed you are absolutely wrong and out of your minds and have been watching one too many godfather movies and should find a new hobby.Sal does not know your father if this is even real and you should really not be threathning people on the internet...it is not going to do anything good for you!!! mama j ...I really dont know what "copy cat" thing you are talking about and i get all my cakes from sal and they are always amazing and the reason it was probably wasnt in a box is because um if it was for a 150 ppl and it was high there is no fuken box that is that big!!! if you werent such a moron and went to another bakery and order a huge cake im pretty sure the same thing would happen...You should really stick to your carvel fudgy the whale cakes cause you obviously do not know what a good cake is!!!

Excuse me, but moron? No, when I lived in North Jersey, all of my huge cakes were covered in come way. Not put in the trunk of some Mexicans car. So you better watch your damn mouth. My family is high profile in Jackson, and when I tell you your shitty bakery is getting a bad wrap around Jackson....IT IS. And the only reason why some people even go there is bc of convenience. I was only talking about my cake you ass. Not anyone else's. Maybe Sal makes good cookies or cupcakes...whatever. But my experience was terrible. Next time I'll travel up north if I have to.
By the way, you might be standing by you bakery or your friend's bakery, but when other consumers look at this forum...they will see how badly you people talk to others. As a business owner you should always remain PROFESSIONAL no matter what is said about you and who is saying it. You should always try and turn a customers bad experience into a good one with you.....not express your personal opinion. But since you don't own the bakery, you should keep your f'ing mouth shut...shouldn't you?
As for Sal's mother...I am sorry for you and your family that you have to continually endure hearing about your son being a "copy cat baker". Whether it is true or not...something like that is hard to come out from under. I hope it's not true and that these other people are making a huge mistake.

I am a frequent visitor of Sal's pastry shoppe and all I have to say is this entire forum is ridiculous. I've been going to sal's for years and he hasn't been anything but a stand up guy. I've never bought something there that dissatisfied me, I've gotten cakes, pastries,etc. All of his stuff is always fresh.... As far as this unbelieveable Copy cat scenario, I mean any body who has a head on their shoulders knows that is just ridiculous. Bakery's have the same stuff, it's as simple as that. the only difference is the quality of the stuff which at Sal's is always up to par. I feel for sal and his family for being harassed on here for no reason. a lot of you are saying that evil people stole your uncles recipes or what not. well in my eyes you are all the "EVIL" people trying to hurt sal. And as far as the last couple of post written by the disgruntled customer, why don't you go to sal's store and explain to him yourself the problem if there was one, he's a great guy and I'm sure he would understand and do his best to fix the situation. If not then let it rest. I find in situations like this, when people talk badly about someone who is a good person it is because they are jealous and want to see this person fail. Well Sal I'll tell you on here and I'll tell you next time I come in, your a great guy and my opinion of you will not be altered because of the selfish evil people on here.

1st of all mama j there are no mexicans at sals that drive so now i know your bullshittin and 2nd if i ordered a cake and it was that bad i would have went in the bakery like an adult the next day with a piece of cake and proved it was that bad...no one spends so much money on a cake and then just "throws it out" without complaining unless like i said your a moron!o and btw no one cares that your family is "HIGH PROFILE" What are you related to the president ? get over yourself!!!!!

I live in Jackson and I used Sal's only once. Everyone in the place was very nice. I also had a cake custom made and spent a pretty penny on it and it turned out beautiful. It was a little dry, but not THAT BAD. The staff was very patient with me while I was designing my cake. I too, had about 150-200 people at my party. MamaJ, I think I know who you are and your family. Yes, you and your family are high profile in Jackson and Ocean County,that I know. You have a lot of political strings...but if it was as bad as you say..why didn't you do something about it? As for everyone else...I don't believe for one damn second anything about a "copy cat baker". Every baker has the same ingredients..right? And anyone from Sal's bakery or his friends should not sink to other people's levels on here. Let people say what they want...you can not change an ignorant mind. As for the 'long dick of the law"...really? That's coming out of a womans mouth? A mother's mouth? Ahhh, lol...okay.
Last...I love Sal's bakery and everyone that I met in there. I will go there again and again. Don't let them get you down and stop sinking to the ignorants level..you are just feeding into them.

Oh and not for anything...I can see that this conversation is getting quite heated...but MamaJ did say that she was only talking about her cake and did say she hopes that it wasn't true and hopes you guys over come it and you still want to ream her out? I'm not sticking up for her...but geeze..you guys need to come down. She does have a point about being in business and being professional and the only professional on here was Sal himself. You are all going to make it bad for Sal if you keep going back and forth. He said what he had to say..plain and simple and got the point across. He's a great baker and he will do very well here in Jackson for a long time.....because he has CLASS!!!
