Company History


DecoPac began as part of McGlynn Bakeries, which started as a single retail bakery in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1919.

The company expanded, increasing the number of retail bakeries and in-store supermarket bakeries.


McGlynn's began an innovative approach to selling cakes by focusing on decorating cakes in view of consumers instead of in the back room.


McGlynn's was directly importing toys from Asia for cake decorating.


In the late 1970s, McGlynn's produced its first in-store book, The Magic of Cakes®, filled with colorful decorated cakes, making it easier for consumers to select and order cakes.


DecoPac was formed as an internal company supplying cake decorations to our own McGlynn's Bakery stores.

Soon other bakeries learned of DecoPac through industry associations, and DecoPac began marketing pre-packaged cake decorating kits, called DecoSets®, to supermarkets, retail bakeries and bakery distributors.


Since 1987, DecoPac has developed relationships and licensing agreements that give the company the right to market cake decorating products featuring popular characters from Disney, Nickelodeon, Mattel®, DreamWorks®, Marvel® and team logos from the NHL®, NBA, NFL, NASCAR®, MLB, and others.
