Meet Kayisha, the Owner!
My name is Kayisha Thompson. I am the Cake Executive Officer of De L’or Cakery. De L’or Cakery is a 5 Star Artisan Cake catering company where we provide tantalizing joy and connections through our Sugar Artistry. We offer a trip around the world in every bite with our Caribbean-infused cakes, cupcakes, and cookie mixes. We believe that our customers deserve only the very best, so we only use the highest quality organic ingredients sourced worldwide. We value communication and honesty, offering expert and professional services to our customers. After recuperating from having COVID19, I pivoted my business to an e-commerce platform and launched a gourmet cookie mix line.
We sell Sea Salt Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Lemon cookie mixes on our website. The Sea Salt Chocolate Chip has a vegetarian baking option on the package and website, and it’s best with a shot of Brandy mixed into the dough.
I am focusing on launching my Tropical Sunset cookie mix, a Hibiscus coconut lemonade shortbread cookie mix. The IRIE Cocoa is a cookie mix blend with cocoa powder from Jamaica, West Indies & Italy. I am in the test kitchen working on gluten and allergy-friendly cookie mixes that reflect the spices and flavors of the African Caribbean Diaspora.
Do you have any favorite flavors?
A summertime favorite is my Pineapple Coconut Rum Cupcakes. It’s a coconut-flavored cake with pineapple-flavored buttercream topped with fresh pineapples. Year-round, my best sellers are my Sea Salt Caramel (Bourbon optional) and my Wicked Dark Chocolate Cupcake. My Wicked Dark Chocolate Cupcake won third place in Lisa Mansour’s New York Cake Show in 2016.
What can you tell us about pricing?
My gourmet custom cakes start at the price of $300.00, feeding 25 people. We offer weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, baby shower cakes, and more. We offer cupcakes, cakesicles, and custom cookies.
Do you deliver?
Yes, for an additional fee, we deliver cakes; however, cakes that are three tiers or higher, no exceptions, will be delivered on-site to the venue.
What about getting started with you?
We offer private tastings in your home or at a local coffee shop and ask our customers to bring inspirational photos and share the individual’s personality that the cake is intended for. We do not copy pictures with designs that another Cake Designer executed, as that would be artistic theft. Clients should refrain from cakes with almond paste, peanut butter, and nuts to decrease allergic reactions amongst their guests. I always tell wedding clients to get the flavor that they like in the top tier and then neutral flavors in the additional tiers. All clients receive a detailed, legally binding cake contract and invoice.
There you have it, an amazing and unique cakery in the Bronx, NY that you can consider for your wedding cake.
