Our mission

The moment a child first lays eyes on their birthday cake is the most exciting and memorable part of any party. With that moment in mind, we set out to design a kit that would make creating an unforgettable cake fun and easy enough for any level baker. Our designs are enjoyable to make on your own with a glass of wine, or with the help of an older child. Just relax, follow our foolproof instructions, and get ready to show off your creative accomplishment with #Cakest.

OUR STORY

We are old friends living in Brooklyn with our families.

We are old friends living in Brooklyn with our families. Like many other professional women, we most treasure the time spent with our kids and we’re always trying to make those experiences as meaningful as we can. For years we baked birthday cakes ourselves rather than buying something from the bakery. But finding a good recipe, along with all the needed ingredients and tools, was always difficult, time consuming, and did not guarantee a great result. Our common experience became the inspiration for Cakest, which we’ve created to help all the parents—and aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends—create something memorable and delicious with confidence and ease.

We spent a whole year sampling more cake mixes and fondants than we thought possible. We went through countless rounds of trial-and-error baking while continually refining and simplifying our designs and instructions. We are now proud to present an assortment of cakes that are thrilling to see, delicious to taste, and easy to create. We have insisted on using only the highest quality cake mixes and fondants, and all our ingredients are free of gluten, nuts, and soy. Our kits are designed, tested, and assembled in Brooklyn.

Happy Baking!
