About Us

 Hi there! My name is Helen Maginn and I am the owner of The Cake Fairy LLC. Baking and art have always been my passions. Growing up in Dublin, Ireland, I learned to bake at a young age, turning my mother's kitchen upside down with lots of fun baking experiments! I continued bakinig into my adult life, with the guidance and instruction of my mother, an accomplished baker. I also took up artistic hobbies such as oil painting, always seeking out the creative and artistic aspect in anything I do.  When I discovered that I could combine my love of baking and art in one activity, my whole world opened up! 

​After a 10 year career in marketing consulting, I decided to move into the business of my passion. I established The Cake Fairy in 2012 in Ireland, and moved it to New Jersey in 2016. Specializing in making beautiful and delcious cakes, I love to provide my clients will personalized service and attention to detail, working with them to design a truly WOW cake. 

My Cake Studio is in Harrington Park, NJ, and is open by Appointment Only - I do consultations and tastings at the studio. Appointments (and cakes) can also be booked by calling the Studio or Emailing Us .  Our cakes are made completely from scratch, using both traditional and modern methods, with high quality ingredients. The studio is nut-free, and every cake is made with the upmost care and attention to detail. We love what we do, and it shows! 

Get in touch with me today, I would love to delight you and your guests with a stunning and delicious cake!

What our clients say about our work...

"There are people who are great at designing and decorating cakes. Then there are people who are great at making delicious cakes. Very rarely can you find a person who is talented enough to be great at BOTH. Well- look no further because you have found Helen, the Cake Fairy, a woman who can accomplish both She uses extreme detail and care when designing your cake, and the ones that she has made for me were nothing short of stellar. The detail! Perfection. Helen also manages to balance the flavors and textures in her cakes. The buttercream frosting complements the flavor of the cake very well. You're not over powered by sweetness, nor are you bored by blandness. It seems as if she has gotten the ratio between the flavors and consistencies down to an algorithm that works every time.
To top that off, Helen is a pleasure to work with. She is very down to earth, friendly, and modest. The Cake Fairy is my go-to for cakes for all of my special occasions.." 


Helen made the cake for my bridal shower and she also made the cookie favors. They were soooo delicious and beautiful!! We actually loved them so much that we ordered more cakes and cookies for my sisters anniversary 2 weeks later. Thank you Helen you are now our go to cake lady!!!
The Cake Fairy made the cake for my daughters communion. The event was amazing, but she was able to make the event extra special with a beautiful cake. It was the center piece of my candy bar. The colors and the style of the cake were exactly the way we envisioned. Not to mention it was so DELICIOUS!!!
