The daughters of the founder of the New York Cake Academy have moved the bakeware shop and baking school to a larger space.
The closing of the New York Cake Academy, the venerable baking supply house and cooking school this year, has a very happy ending. Lisa Mansour and Jenny Kashanian, the daughters of the founder, Joan Mansour, have moved the establishment into a larger space just a block away. The new store has a cafe in the front, where dessert confections made in-house are served, something that was never possible in the smaller shop. The glassed-in cooking school can handle twice as many students and now has ovens, so baking, not just confectionery, can be taught. And in the rear are racks upon racks filled with every baking and decorating implement imaginable.
