Penny Stankiewicz

Penny Stankiewicz has been delighting her customers with her custom cake creations for more than a decade.  Strongly influenced by hear years as a filmmaker, Penny strives to tell a story in every cake she makes.  Like each film, every cake requires her to become a mini expert on a subject, immerse herself and then move on to the next creative cake pursuit.  

A graduate of  NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the Institute of Culinary Education,  Penny’s background in the visual and culinary arts makes her uniquely poised to create unique works in flour sugar and butter.  A strong visual language and knack for storytelling combine to make her superpower, the ability to combine random imagery into one cohesive “cake story”, her clients’ stories, told through her eyes.

 Not one to keep her craft to herself, Penny also led popular cake decorating classes at the 92nd St Y, helped build the recreational culinary and baking programs at Sarah Lawrence College, and has led cake classes at the International Culinary Institute and Institute of Culinary Education (ICE).  Penny was also honored to teach at DeGustibus Cooking School in Macy’s.  Penny also offers private classes, which is a great opportunity to connect with clients and share her love of all things sweet.
