Huascar & Company Bakeshop opened as H Bake Shop in 2013, the same year we won Cupcake Wars on Food Network. We have since moved to our new location at 453 West 54th Street, where my team and I work tirelessly to bring you small batches of delicious cupcakes, brownies, cookies, cheesecakes, flans, French macarons, coconut macaroons, brigadeiros, and custom cakes that are flavor-focused, using only the best ingredients! Warm regards, Chef Huascar XOXO
Chef Huascar Aquino was born in the Dominican Republic, where he learned to cook at home at his mother’s side, and in hotels all over the island. He came to the New York as a young man to study pastry arts at the French Culinary Institute (now, the International Culinary Center). In 2012 he competed on Food Network’s Sweet Genius and, in 2013, won Food Network's Cupcake Wars (Season 9 Episode 1)—a first for a New York baker! In June 2018, he appeared as a contestant on Food Network's Chopped.
