About us

CupCakery first opened its doors in 2006. Melanie Asher, our master baker had found an old art gallery for rent in Manhattan. The location was great, but it required a lot of money to refit and set up a working kitchen. Melanie went to her local bank and persuaded the manager to lend her money, something she says would never work out in the same way these days.

We pride ourselves on creating the freshest and finest special occasion cakes. Our pastry chefs follow recipes that have been refined throughout the years. Our mission is to offer the highest quality in taste and design to our customers. Our special care and attention to detail in creating exclusive desserts has led to a loyal following with New York City’s top businesses and an ever-expanding private clientele.
