Most of my cakes are hand painted with nontoxic edible cake paints. I do a lot of metallic paints as well. All decorations, including flowers are handcrafted from edible confections. I takes pride in using only the very best ingredients ensuring that every cake tastes as good as it looks, or better! I absolutely reject the notion that you have to sacrifice the way a cake tastes, for the way it looks. All cakes are made fresh, so that they taste as exquisite as they look. We use only the finest ingredients, including Swiss chocolate, fondant, and real liquors and extracts. Monique’s Unique Cakes offers a variety of satisfying cake flavors from decadent chocolate and old-fashioned vanilla to rich Chiffon and moist carrot cake just to name a few. Her Caribbean influences can be seen in the many colors she uses in her cakes.
Monique’s decorations are completely edible, many clients choose to save them as a keepsake. Each cake is made with great attention to color, texture and style. We also make uniquely decorated cookies and fabulously delicious wedding cakes, whimsical sculpted cakes, miniature cakes, petit fours and cupcakes. My cakes prices are based on the serving size and the intricacy of the designs. Every cake is a work of art.
Monique’s Unique Cakes is based in Brooklyn, New York. Cakes are by appointment only and a two week advance consultation and order is required. Wedding cakes require three months in advance order.
