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.

The cake decorating 101 was great! I was able to learn several new techniques which I am currently putting to use, and it’s making a clear difference in my work. It was definitely money well spent and I’m looking forward to my next class.

The holiday cookie decorating class was so fun to do with my friend! I've always wanted to learn how to decorate cookies that looked beautiful and our Cookie Decorating Master made it so enjoyable and easy to learn. My friend and I even went home and decorated cookies for our friends and family with our newly learned skills. This is a great class for beginners and I highly recommend bringing a friend along!
