Launched in 2017, Cakest was started by two friends and moms, Judit Major and Rita Horvath in Brooklyn, New York. For years they baked their own birthday cakes rather than buying from a bakery, but they found the experience rather frustrating-finding it difficult and time consuming to find the right ingredients, tools and tutorials. So, they set out to design a kit that would help creating an unforgettable birthday cake a fun and easy enough process for any level baker. In the last year during weekends and evenings they sampled more cake mixes and fondants that we thought was possible and went through countless trial-error baking to simplify our designs and instructions.
Cakest targets first time bakers and provides them with a complete package which includes ingredients, baking tools, cutouts and instructions with a variety of themes based on most popular cakes for boys and girls. Novice and experienced bakers are guided through the entire process with step-by-step instructions for baking, decorating and presenting a masterpiece cake, aided by a kit that includes ingredients (gluten-free cake mix, fondant), and baking tools (cake pan, cake board, offset spatula, rolling pin, decorating tools).
Their beautiful collection of DIY cakes are now available on Booked Marketplace. Take a look!
