Tiffany's Bakery has been in business since 1978. Edwin and Joy Mejia founded the company, which today remains family owned and operated with three generations of Mejias at the helm. Edwin and Joy's daughters – Yvette, Roxanne and Suzette have all worked in the bakery. Grandson Kyle and Granddaughter Erica have joined the family business.
We'd love to tell you a terrific story about how Tiffany was the great, great grandma of one of the owners and known far and wide for her delicious cakes, but unfortunately, that's not the case. In fact, Tiffany doesn't exist, or at least not as part of Tiffany's Bakery in Clinton, Maryland. Back in 1978 when we began the business, Tiffany's Bakeries, Inc. was a national franchise. In 1983 the national franchise went bankrupt but we were able to purchase the name and therefore continue using it for our business.
Our specialty is cakes, all sorts. We sell birthday cakes, wedding cakes, decorated cakes, dessert cakes, sculptured cakes, ice cream cakes and cupcakes. We also offer cookies, pies and macarons, especially during the holiday season.
We're open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. On Saturday we're open from 10:00 am - 2:00 p.m. We're closed on Sunday. We are closed on Christmas, New Year's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

Our bakery is located at 8904 Simpson Lane, Clinton, Maryland, 20735. Although we're in Clinton, our customers come from all over Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.

We use high quality ingredients, and our cake decorators have had many years of specialized training.

Our creamy, light, not too sweet frosting melts in your mouth. This is what we use for most of our decorated cakes." Fondant is a sugar-based frosting that can be rolled and used to cover a cake. It offers more versatility than buttercream. It can be textured, smoothed, left white or tinted any color. You can airbrush it and form it into any shape you want. Fondant looks slightly more elegant and refined, which is why we use it so often on our wedding cakes and to add custom details to buttercream frosted cakes.

Our tres leche cakes and strawberry shortcakes must be refrigerated. Other than those, the only cakes requiring refrigeration are those with whipped topping or fruit filling.

We only use licensed figures we buy from our suppliers.
Legally, yes we can. Sesame Workshop gets paid royalties no matter how the toy is used, and that includes placing it as a decoration on a cake. However, the greater concern is that we have no way to know what was used in the making of that toy. There could be, for example, lead in the paint. We therefore prefer to only use approved cake decorations just to be safe.
