The Hudson Cakery is an upscale custom cake boutique with an emphasis on TASTE. We bake-to-order with only the freshest ingredients for a delicious addition to your special day. We are proud to be one of the very few commercial bakeries to bake from scratch. Our cakes taste as good as they look!
We specialize in modern designs but we are open to anything you want to create to act as the centerpiece of your event. Every cake we design, we tailor to your needs – from mild to wild – we treat each one as a work of art.

Head Chef & Owner, Jennifer Bunce, has loved baking (and eating!) desserts, especially cake, since she was a child. However, only semi-recently did she turn her passion into a full time business. Post-college, she found success in Event Planning and Public Relations. But after 5 years of the corporate grind, she knew she had to find a “sweeter” way of living. She decided to turn her hobby of baking and cake decorating into a career so she attended the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC in 2008.
After graduating with high honors in Pastry Arts, she interned with famed bakery, Confetti Cakes with Elisa Strauss. She has also studied with Kate Sullivan at CakePower, International Sugar Artist Lorraine McKay as well as cake decorating pro Chef Toba Garrett. After leaving a pastry chef position at Sweetiepie Restaurant in NYC, Jennifer established The Hudson Cakery in May 2009.
