About Empire Cake

Empire Cake brings you the best in American baking with a gourmet twist. We feature fresh-baked cakes, cupcakes, cookies, breakfast pastries, brownies and bars, and sophisticated versions of classic snack treats, including our own “twinkies,” “snowballs” and Swiss rolls.

Our custom-designed cakes range from traditional tiered wedding cakes to one-of-a-kind creations for birthdays and other celebrations, corporate events and promotions, and advertising and fashion editorials. Our popular window displays looking out onto 8th Avenue feature our latest fondant creations, and inside the bakery you’ll find other examples of our custom-designed cakes for every occasion. Our cake consultants can help you build your dream cake for any of life’s celebrations, large or small.

Everything served at Empire Cake is made fresh daily on the premises using the finest ingredients, including fresh butter and cream from quality local producers, pure whole vanilla beans, Belgian chocolate, and fresh seasonal produce from the Union Square Greenmarket. We also proudly serve gourmet coffee from Stumptown and organic whole leaf teas from Two Leaves and A Bud.

Empire Cake is located at 8th Avenue and 15th Street, where the West Village, Chelsea and the Meatpacking districts collide—and just two blocks from the High Line, providing the perfect opportunity to grab some delicious treats and coffee for a picnic in the park.

    Delicious and Creative!

    Empire Cakes was absolutely amazing! They create a masterpiece that was very untraditional for a wedding cake and our guests raved about it. The Very Vanilla is delicious and Jason and his team were amazingly professional, on-time and a pleasure to work with. I HIGHLY recommend using Empire Cakes for your wedding cake!

    The Best Cake We've Ever Eaten

    We chose New York as our destination wedding, originally an elopement, that in the end turned into a mini wedding with six of our closest friends and family. Even though it was a small affair, we didn't want to miss out on the chance of having a wedding cake. After hunting for a while online, reading many reviews, we emailed Empire Cakes. We could not have made a better choice!! From start to finish they were friendly and easy to deal with, they offered ideas and suggestions but also listened to exactly what we wanted. We collected it the day before our wedding, and the hotel kindly stored it in the fridge over night for us. It was the best way to finish off the day. We had everyone back to our hotel room, and we even borrowed a knife to get that "cutting the cake" picture. The cake was one of the best we've ever eaten! It makes me sad that we live so far away. We had raspberry and lemon fillings, I don't think I could choose between the two if I had to pick a favourite, and it looked exactly how we wanted it to. We still have the decorations from the top, somehow, we got them back to Scotland without any damage.

    We had the most amazing desserts and wedding cake courtesy of Empire Cake! The black and white cookies were GONE minutes later - the caterer had never seen desserts disappear so quickly. They told me usually no one touches the desserts after their cocktail hour/ dinner. But Empire Cake is THAT good. I surprised my husband-to-be with a beautiful grooms cake, flavored with hazelnut praline. Our spectacular wedding cake was three flavors - hazelnut, cake suzette and black forest. Several friends have gone back to Empire for their amazing cupcakes to have the taste again!
