About Us

Welcome to Cakes by Manal. I am the owner,cake designer and pastry chef of Cakes by Manal,
serving the NY/NJ/CT/PA areas since 2006.

I wanted to be a Pastry Chef from the time I was about 10. By the time I was 15, I was working
at bakeries after school for free to learn the art of baking and cake decorating. At the age of 18, I
went into the Art Institute of New York, where I got my baking and pastry art certification. After
that, I took an internship at the famous Bouley Bakery in NYC, and after that, I took jobs at
bakeries and off premise caterers as well as promoting my business by word of mouth.

I prefer not to make the same cake twice. If you happen to like a cake i have done in the past, I
wont duplicate it, but I would take parts of that certain cake and make a very special one of a
kind cake for you. Not only do I offer cakes for every occasion, but I do also offer cookies,
cupcakes, dessert buffets, and classic french, american and italian pastries.

Please e-mail me at [email protected] to inquire.

Over the course of several months, even after furnishing her with a deposit, I repeatedly asked her for a sketch of the cake I had described to her. She promised and promised, but I never received the sketch. And then our wedding day arrived. What a supreme disappointment! The order was for a small, burgundy, 3-tiered cake with a domed topper of gum-paste Black Magic roses and covered top to bottom with an off-white damask pattern, much like the one from her very own Facebook page. The cake we got had a very large, obvious BULGE protruding from the second tier. The decoration was--quite literally--a pale comparison to the cake which we had discussed in ... Read more
