Welcome to From Scratch Cakery!



Opportunity knocks and presents you with a choice. Two years ago we seized that opportunity and embarked on a mission to provide the best tasting cupcakes, cakes, and macarons found in the greater Rochester area. Several weeks ago opportunity presented itself again. So, after careful deliberation, we have made the decision to discontinue our public retail operations effective Saturday March 23, 2013.

For our many loyal customers during this time, we appreciate your outstanding support as well as the impromptu counter conversations. We have enjoyed being a part of your extended family, providing that special after-dinner dessert following a long day, treating someone for a special achievement or enriching a special occasion with a specialty cake. Your memories have become our memories. It was very hard not to tell you when you came to visit these past two weeks. We hope you will understand that we had to wait to make our announcement.

For those who have placed orders beyond this date, we will be contacting you in the near future to discuss your individual situation.

It is our desire that the legacy of From Scratch Cakery will continue on. We are actively exploring options to find a buyer who will continue to forward this mission.

Thanks from all of us at From Scratch Cakery


Real goods from real ingredients.

We believe that the best taste comes from using real, natural ingredients. You won't find any mixes or additives in our kitchen. Our cupcakes, cookies, and specialty cakes are made fresh each day from scratch, using real butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Our treats will never contain trans fats, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or partially hydrogenated oils.

Offering options for individual food allergies.

We understand that accomodating food allergies shouldn't require sacrifices in taste. Our philosophy of great taste from natural ingredients extends to our products for individuals with food allergies. We offer great tasting baked goods to accomodate soy, dairy or peanut allergies.

Supporting fellow local businesses.

We're proud to call Rochester our home, and believe in supporting other Rochester area business owners. Though we may not be the Flour City anymore, all our goods are made with flour sourced from Rochester's only remaining flour mill. Our packaging is sourced from a local distributor, as well as good for the environment - it's made from 100% recycled materials, and fully recyclable.
