When pictures of Jay-Z's elaborate birthday cake surfaced on the internet a few weeks ago, I needed to meet the artist behind it immediately. Please note I say "artist," not "baker," because BCakeNY is anything but your average bakery. Located in Brooklyn, New York, BCakeNY is a custom cake design studio that bakes cakes for any and every occasion.
Owner and cake designer Miriam Milord was born in Germany and moved to New York in 2000. With a degree in fine arts and design, she spent her first few years in New York as a designer for a prominent art gallery. Occasionally baking for friends and family for special events, her creative cake designs became a hit, and in 2008 Miriam turned what was once a hobby into a booming business. BCakeNY was created.
Since opening in 2008, BCakeNY has been designing some of the most creative cakes in the business. Some are so realistic it's hard to believe they are edible, but I promise that not only are they amazing pieces of art, they are equally as delicious. Take a look at someone of these yourself!
Miriam's cakes have caught the eye of other A-list celebrities, such as Justin Bieber, Rhianna, Sia, DJ Khaled and Kevin Hart (just to name a few).
And while elaborate birthday cakes might be what they are known for, BCakeNY also creates stunning wedding cakes, custom cupcakes and cookies too!
