Fostering Growth and Innovation in the Cake Artist and Baking Community.

The first show occurring on July 1st, 2013, at the New York Cake & Bake Supply warehouse in Yonkers, Lisa Mansour’s New York Cake Show has grown substantially in just a few years. Lisa Mansour (founder) created the event with the intention of developing an outlet to foster growth within the cake industry. Lisa believes strongly, that every cake competition that a decorator enters is a learning experience for the competitor; giving them the opportunity to learn new techniques and push themselves to think differently. As a result, when developing her cake show, it was essential that competitors have the ability to not only receive scores for their work, but speak with the judges and request feedback, so they can learn for future competitions. In addition, Lisa takes careful consideration when selecting judges, it is essential that they be forward thinking and innovators – she looks for the best in the business. The cake show also has attendees from a variety of vendors and magazines, offering eager cake artists an opportunity for networking and self- promotion. All-in-all, Lisa Mansour’s Cake Show is truly designed with the cake artist in mind, with careful consideration placed on how can this show help competitors to further develop; giving them opportunities they may have not yet had before.

Lisa Mansour: Founder of the Show

Lisa Mansour is an award-winning expert in cake decoration, and is co-founder and co-owner of NY Cake & Baking Supply, located in New York City.  In addition to managing her business, which includes retail, online and wholesale components, she is also head of NY Cake Academy, where she frequently teaches classes, and provides content for instructional videos on websites like About.com.

Growing up, Lisa was surrounded by baking, cake decorating and candy making. Her grandmother, Anne Taylor, was a chocolatier, and her mother, Joan, is one of the pioneers of cake decorating in New York City.  Her passion and enthusiasm for cake decorating became apparent in grade school, always delighting her peers with creative confections for school events, including a six-tier cake for her high school prom.

In 1980, when Lisa’s mother opened her first shop, The Chocolate Gallery, in the back of her husband’s cosmetic store, Lisa worked there almost every weekend and assisted with the classes her mother taught.  Then together, in 1989, Lisa and Joan expanded The Chocolate Gallery to become the first store and school of its kind in the tri-state area, dedicated solely to the art of cake decorating and candy creation.  In 1992, they moved to a bigger storefront, and NY Cake & Baking Supply was born.

Lisa has won several awards from the Société Culinaire Philanthropique, and she was recently invited by the French Culinary Institute to judge students’ final exams, grading each on appearance, design and taste. She has also been inducted into The Wilton Method Instructor Hall of Fame. Martha Stewart Radio, NY1, American Cake, and The Bravo Network have all recognized and featured Lisa, her store and its latest products, and most recently she was on Not My Mama’s Cooking Show with Bobby Deen on The Cooking Channel.
