N.Y. Cake & Baking Distributor first opened its doors known as the Chocolate Gallery more than 25 years ago. It was founded by Joan Mansour renowned cake decorator and gold medal award winner by the Societe Culinaire Philantropique. She not only was awarded National teacher of the year, regional teacher of the year and award for most students taught. She was also inducted into the Wilton Hall of Fame. 

Since, customers asked repeatedly for a shop to purchase supplies to bake and decorate their cakes, she decided to emphasize more on baking products and we thereby became known as New York Cake and Baking Distributor. We have a 5,000 square foot store carrying everything you need. We became known as the “one stop shop” for all your baking needs as well as a baker’s paradise. 

Joan opened up a school of cake decorating where she taught some of the most renowned cake decorators today in Manhattan. We were published in numerous magazines including Family Circle, Womens Day, and Martha Stewart Living as a source for purchasing cookie cutters, cake pans, gum paste cutters and tools, sanding colored sugars, silver and gold dragees, Petal dusts, Silver and gold powder, chocolate molds as well as many other hard to find items.


We are a wholesaler as well as retailer to all those who are interested in baking & decorating. Our flagship store is located in the Chelsea Area of Manhattan. We carry the full line of tools from the most basic to the hardest to find items. We enjoy serving the occasional baker to the most professional.

We have been rated in ZAGAT where it honors the businesses featured in America’s most prestigious Dining & Shopping Guide of 2009/10. New York Cake & Baking Distributor was quoted as “This flatiron shop stocks “everything for the sweet kitchen” from cake decorating supplies like food coloring, gum paste and sprinkles to cookie cutters, pans “ in any shape”, doilies and “ beautiful dragees” and decorations that “ pique the imagination” of “amateurs” and “professionals “ alike.


The New York Press has awarded New York Cake & Baking Distributors as the “Best place to get huge blocks of Bittersweet Valhrona Chocolate” in its Best of Manhattan 2009. Joan's two daughters, Lisa Mansour and Jenny Kash, have taken managerial control over Nycake with much continued success. Lisa is also lead instructor for Nycake Academy and Jenny has extended NYCAKE to the internet with online and wholesale services.

Was disappointed. The cookies did not really came good out and it was not the mistake of the participant. Did not feel welcome. Hope that the next class will be better.

Great class! I learned some really great decoration techniques for cake pops. Hands on learning experience . I got a chance to purchase all of the items that I needed to go home with to create the same cake pops made in class . I will without a doubt be returning to take other classes.

This was a great class! Instruction was thorough yet concise, and all techniques were doable for a beginner. I left the class feeling capable of using the skills I learned to construct and decorate a cake from start to finish on my own. I would highly recommend this course to others!
