Our Story Our baking journey began decades ago and is based on family recipes and the cultural heritage of service and excellence practiced by our beloved matriarch, Josephine Smith, affectionately called “Ma Smith”. Her recipes combined the southern baking traditions of Mississippi and Alabama with Harlem soul. Several generations later, we continue to uphold the legacy that “good taste” still runs in our family. Evolving from a home-based business, over 22 years ago, that baked for all occasions, we were compelled to address our customer demand by expanding the business to several full service retail and wholesale bakeries. Our family has managed to set the baking world on fire growing Make My Cake into a global sensation which draws thousands of worldwide visitors seeking the ultimate “red velvet cake” and various other heavenly desserts to Harlem. At Make My Cake, we serve our sweet creations like Food Network favorite – German Chocolate Cake, New York Times pick – Red Velvet Cake, and local favorite – Sweet Potato Cheesecake to the fans which flock to our bakeries daily. The national exposure has served to affirm the success of our beloved Ma Smith. Our family team of Jo-Ann, Aliyyah, Kevin, Dedan, Khalid, along with our personable staff are dedicated to making each customer smile one sweet tooth at a time.
