Happy Friday Evening!
Cake Devils here! Busy Cake Devils, up to our ears in cake! In case you couldn't tell from the tardiness of our April Newsletter. Since we're late, we'll keep this short and sweet... like us! :D
March was a busy, busy month full of hustle and bustle with orders, tastings, shows and everyday business. The last minute weather postponement of the Suffern Crowne Plaza Bridal Show gave us two shows just two days apart. We had the Bethel Woods Bridal Expo only two day after the snow date. The excitement of the brides and other guests was infectious... or maybe that was the sugar high from our cake samples. ;) In any case, both venues are absolutely beautiful and in very different ways. We highly recommend checking them both out for your special events. If you book the Crowne Plaza, you'll already be heading in our direction for a cake and if you go with Bethel Woods, don't forget to call us for your beautiful centerpiece of a cake as well!
And now for some BIG news that we're very excited to share with you! We're gearing up to launch a Referral program where you'll be able to earn credit towards cake!! You'll earn a small percentage of every order you send our way. You can hold onto those credits if you want... Send us enough referral and maybe you'll earn yourself a free cake! You never know! Stay tuned for details. We'll be launching this summer!
Before we sign off, we just want to briefly mention our recent travels to the National Capital Area Cake Show where we took home not one, but two blue ribbons... but more on that in our next newsletter! Or if you just can't wait, take some time to browse our Meet the Devils page and our News & Accomplishments page. I've been doing some updating!

I just spent some time updating our slideshows... removed some old cakes and added some new ones! Hope you enjoy them!
January Classes Sold Out Fast! Sign up for February Now!
Hope you are all recovered from the busy holiday season and getting back into the swing of everyday life. Cake decorating classes resume next week. This month I'll be teaching course 1, Decorating Basics and course 3, Gum Paste and Fondant. Both these classes sold out fast!
I just posted the dates for February. So if you feel like taking a shot at the sweet basics of cake decorating, course 1 will be offered on Monday nights. It teaches you the foundation of decorating so that you can then move on to the next 3 courses. By the end of the 4 weeks, you'll be able to bake, fill, ice and decorate a cake!
Go to our class information page for more information!
Hope to see you all there!!

Really?? The holidays are here already??? Where does the time go?
Wow! It's been a whirlwind for the Cake Devils!!! We've been BUSY Little Devils!!! We have lots to be thankful for and lots to share with you. We'll try to keep this short and sweet, but it's not going to be easy! This Holiday Newsletter is jam packed!!!
First we want to talk about the Orange County Partnership Annual Event which took place at Anthony's Pier 9 the beginning of this month. What an amazing opportunity that was for us! We would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to everyone at the Partnership for the fantastic opportunity. We are so proud of the amazing replica of the Mediacom building that we made as the centerpiece for this incredible, almost 600 person event! We also want to extend great thanks to Mediacom for getting us the photos and blueprints of the building which allowed us to create the building to scale. In addition, we have to thank Ryerson Studio for the YouTube video of the model they created, which we watched thousands of times while constructing our replica! (Check out Mike DelPriore's video here.) This, by far, was our largest (and most intense) project yet! On the night of the event, everything went off without a hitch. We successfully delivered the Mediacom building (that was too big to fit through a door), a ton of cake, 32 pounds of sauces and 10 pounds of sugar shards. We had a fantastic evening, met some AMAZING and INCREDIBLE people, and watched with glee as almost 600 people enjoyed our Devils Food Cake with Chocolate Butter Cream, Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing and Baileys Irish Cream Cake with Baileys Buttercream. We're still ecstatic from the rave reviews! :D
Congratulations once again to Mediacom on winning the Golden Shovel Award!
As we came down from that sugar high, quite a few days were filled with spicy Gingerbread, rather than cake, especially for Cake Devil Stacy! As you may know, Cake Devil Stacy teaches Wilton Method Cake Decorating Classes at the Michaels in Ramsey. More information can be found here. In preparation for teaching a gingerbread house class, I created an entire gingerbread village and did a gingerbread house demo at the store! This was quite a different experience from doing cakes!
Then we received an invitation (ok, request for help) from a friend who is a member of the Artists In the Park for Cake Devils to join them as mentors at The Bear Mountain Inn as they created Gingerbread Houses to be raffled off for the holiday season. The day was a lot of fun and we met some wonderful people and made some great contacts!!! The Bear Mountain Inn recently reopened after 7 years, and it's absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend checking it out! The Artists are a group of really great people and did a fantastic job!! Check out their work:
With the holidays upon us, we hope that you are all as excited as we are for this festive season. It’s our first holiday season as Cake Devils and as we look back upon this past year, we are overwhelmed with joy by all of the support that we have received. From the start we have had many opportunities to provide the service and product that we love most...delicious and exquisite cakes! All year long, we have been fortunate to help you celebrate many birthdays, showers, weddings and other joyful occasions. The feedback we have received has been uplifting and amazing and we couldn't be more appreciative. Equally exciting were the events we were able to partake in, such as the People to People fair, the Wedding Wire Networking Event, Anthony's Pier 9 bridal show, and, we’re thrilled to have become active members of the Wedding Vendors of the Hudson Valley, just to name a few. These opportunities have allowed us to share our unique products and services and have provided us the chance to meet people who have been able to help us grow and develop our business. We cannot thank you enough...and we are really excited for the plans we have in the works for the new year. We have some big changes coming and some exciting things happening! We thank you for all you have shared with us this year.
Of course, this wouldn’t be our newsletter if we didn’t share some recent cakes with you!
With so much sadness in the news recently, it's more important than ever to count our blessings and make the most of everyday. We wish you and your loved ones all a joyous and peaceful holiday season and a wonderful new year. Take the time to enjoy life. Tell your family you love them. Hug them a little tighter this year. Celebrate the good times and always make sure there’s a cake involved! :D
From our kitchen to yours, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Newtown, CT.
