Classic & Premium Flavors

Our cakes are baked on-site, in small batches, using the finest and freshest ingredients available. Our house buttercream is an authentic Italian meringue buttercream made with premium butter, 100% Madagascar vanilla, egg whites, and sugar. That’s it – nothing artificial and absolutely no shortening. The taste is silky smooth, not too sweet, and simply the best!

For optimum texture and flavor, our cakes should always be served at room temperature.

“My wife had Madison Ave make a replica cake of my 2005 Corvette and this cake blew everyone away! And not only was it good looking, it tasted amazing! We will definitely be ordering more of Madison Ave’s cakes for our special events!”

Albert W.

Words can’t explain the cake I received to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. It was a 3-dimensional teddy bear. It was incredible. What a talent. Not only was it a showstopper, it tasted incredible. Everyone at the party had to know where it was from. You must get a cake from Madison Avenue Specialty Cakes.”

Eric A.

I ordered a Harry Potter inspired cake for my nephew’s birthday. Not only was the cake extremely detailed, there aren’t enough words to describe how great it tasted. We went with yellow batter and chocolate buttercream icing. One of the best tasting cakes I have ever had. Please support Madison Ave, you will not be disappointed.”

We do not offer a standard price list for our handmade custom cakes. The cost of your cake is determined by the complexity of the design, the size of the cake, and the amount of time required to create it.

Custom cake pricing starts at a minimum order of $245.00, due to the time and attention given to each cake.

Our Classic Cakes are an excellent option for those customers who want a delicious cake on a smaller budget. Choose any flavor and one of three sizes. Classic cakes start at $58.00.
