Carousel Cakes specializes in chocolate cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and other fine desserts. We've been featured on television programs, such as "The View"; and in many magazines, including Oprah's O Magazine! Oprah's favorite: the Red Velvet Cake!
Carousel Cakes features over 20 varieties, and we have distribution in 6 states, as well as a select line of cakes available across the country direct to your door via our online store. Recently, we've begun shipping cupcakes, too! Those lucky enough to live close to our Nanuet Bakery can take these cakes home. The line at the counter is typically long and extends out the door on holidays. But most agree, it's well worth the wait.
Here are a few of our family's favorite recipes that make any table an extraordinary one:

At Carousel Cakes, our family tradition of baking goes back two generations, and over 50 years. Raised in a foster home, Martin Lefkowitz's sweet tooth led him to his ultimate destiny. Starting at the age of 16, he learned everything there was to learn about the art of baking. Traveling the Catskills in New York, he learned and watched everything at each hotel bakery until he became an expert at baking cakes, cookies, and pies. He learned that the most important part of a good product was the combination of natural and fresh ingredients mixed by hand, with love.
Today, we are proud to keep that tradition alive in our delicious chocolate cakes, cheesecakes, and other fine desserts. The highest quality, the highest standards.
Our family believes in giving back. Carousel Cakes supports our local community through bake sales, sponsorships, donations, and fundraisers. We also support national charitable organizations. Each February, we pledge a portion of our proceeds to the American Heart Association. We also have a Pink Ribbon Cheesecake and Pink Velvet Cake, and donate a portion of each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
