How we started

Tater Cakes was established in 2010 by Jessica T in Lockport, NY. The bakery started off in a 150-square-foot workshop in the front corner of her home, focusing on custom cakes and cookies from a mom of three who just loved to bake. With the encouragement of friends and family, Jessica decided to share her baked goods with others.     

Word of her delicious baked goods spread in no time, and the tiny 150-square-foot space was no longer suitable. This led Jessica and her husband to open a brick-and-mortar shop in Lockport, where the menu options expanded, to share these delights with the rest of the Lockport community and beyond.     

Jessica has approached decorating by using her natural artistic abilities, observing multiple types of decorating from traditional books and magazines and staying up to date by utilizing social media for the most current trends and styles in the world of decorating.


Please note- we are not a gluten or nut free bakery. Our products may come in contact and are made on shared equipment. 


Our Name

When it came time to name the business, Jessica wanted to avoid a traditional name such as "Cakes and Cookies by Jessica". While talking to friends, a long time friend, Josh, suggested using Mr. T's nickname. We thought it was funny and catchy.      

Don't worry, no potatoes are harmed in making our delicious treats
