Bakery Crafts was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1947 by Natalie and Jack Guttman. The cake decoration business grew quickly and ownership began transitioning to their three children Sam, Dan, and Debbie in the early 1980s. Licensing became an important segment of Bakery Crafts with the addition of such properties as Pokémon, Angry Birds, Hello Kitty, Transformers, Sesame Street and My Little Pony.
Today, the combined DecoPac and Bakery Crafts business has the largest line of professional cake decorating products in the industry. We offer the widest selection of everyday, seasonal and licensed products as well as a full range of bakery equipment and tools.
