Bakeries in Weehawken

When Palermo’s Bakery opened nearly three decades ago, it was a small storefront affair. Husband and wife team, Joanne and Jerry Bruno, baked small-scale confections at first, but over the years, Jerry became adventurous, constructing elaborate designer cakes that grew more intricate over the years. Twenty-five years later, thanks in part to those same creations, the small Italian bakery has grown into two custom cake shops with more than 50 staff members. Still helmed by the Bruno family, Palermo's Bakery creates lavish wedding cakes bursting with fondant flowers, and specialty cakes sculpted into an array of improbable shapes, such as 3D champagne bottles. Though baked goods and pastries vary by location, they often include more than 20 flavors of cookies, Italian treats such as cannoli, and kosher desserts such as rugalech. All of the duo’s whimsical creations are available for pick-up or delivery.

For Khadijah Frederick, choosing a name for her confectionary business was a no-brainer. Wah-Wah's Cakes?pronounced "whoa-whoa"?was named after her mother, Carolyn "Mommy Wah-Wah" Frederick, who taught her how to bake and decorate cakes. Khadijah came back to baking later in her life, using it as a creative outlet from her 9-to-5 job. She eventually decided to go full time, making custom cakes, cupcakes, and cookies and using a variety of flavors, including yellow cake, bananas foster, chocolate lava, and gluten-free chocolate and vanilla options. Her past work includes an Elmo birthday cake and a Mother's Day bouquet of cupcakes made to look like roses. She also crafts cakes that look like other foods, such as hot dogs or pizza, to send taste buds into existential crises. Wah-Wah's Cakes is not a retail bakery. It is a custom cake and cupcake studio operating out of a private kitchen. They do not have products for retail sales, each order is custom made.

When he was only 7 years old, Tonnie's Minis founder Tonnie Rozier started cooking confections alongside his grandmother. As he grew older, he realized baking was more than a childhood pastime, and went on to found an at-home baking business. By 2005, he had so many orders that he quit his job to field ever-growing requests for his sweets. Soon, Tonnie found himself filling orders for all corners of the Big Apple, ranging from everyday Brooklynites to Jay-Z and P. Diddy. Today, he leads his crew of confectioners in hand-crafting a menu of notable cupcakes that have competed on Food Network's Cupcake Wars and nourished the studio audience of The Wendy Williams Show in the moments after a massive food fight. The shop’s rotating list of flavors includes signature carrot cupcakes made with hand-peeled organic carrots by Tonnie himself and moist red velvet dainties crowned with cream-cheese icing. As the seasons change, the lineup shifts to incorporate flavors that represent the time of year, such as Halloween cupcakes, colorful dainties for spring, and morsels with the date of Secretary's Day written in their frosting.

François Payard Bakery, one of 13 Payard eateries across the world according to Fox News, claims not only a pastry case full of treats, but an acclaimed proprietor as well. François Payard, has accepted such prestigious awards as the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Pastry Chef award in 1995 and the Ordre du Merite Agricole medal of honor from the French government in 2004. Payard’s journey began almost 50 years ago in Nice, France, where he was born into a warm, flour-dusted family of pastry artists. He spent his childhood peeking over grandpa’s shoulder at the renowned family pastry shop, Au Nid des Friandises, on the Riviera. These early experiences shaped him fundamentally, and as a young man, François took his talent to Paris to serve as pastry chef in Michelin-rated La Tour d’Argent and Lucas Carton. But like the Statue of Liberty, François was inevitably New York bound, and made his way to the Big Apple in 1990. He started his first pastry chef role at Le Bernardin, which was awarded four stars by the New York Times. He also first opened the restaurant Payard Patisserie & Bistro in 1997, opening his own bakery in 2010. Today, François’s menu focuses on the classics: pain au chocolate, éclairs, and tarts, such as the seasonal Papa Payard. He also handcrafts signature cakes, from milk-chocolate espresso to flan, and savory sandwiches, quiches, and salads.
