Madelyn’s Cakes has been in its works since the founder Madelyn Alfonso was a child. Ever since she could recall she has had a passion for cooking and baking. She still remembers how she saved her lunch money to buy cookbooks at the book fair. She continually tested recipes in her mom’s kitchen, while family and friends gave her feedback on her tasty creations. As she got older, Madelyn entered competitions where she won first and second place prizes. The prizes were in the form of scholarships, which later covered most of her tuition at Johnson & Wales University. There she obtained an associates degree in baking & pastry and a bachelors in food service management.
Madelyn’s training and talent made it possible for her to work at the famous Chef Allen’s Restaurant and at the Turnberry Isles Resort and Club in Aventura.
All the while, Madelyn was making and selling cakes at home. After 4 years of cake production at home, the word got around and business boomed. As a result she decided to open her own shop in her home town of Hialeah. On January 16th, 2006, the doors of Madelyn’s Cakes were opened to the public where she along with her mom and her talented staff continue to create amazing cakes that not only are delicious but also originally beautiful. Madelyn’s cakes are made from scratch with the freshest ingredients and with love.
