Butterfly Bakeshop was such a find; it was very overwhelming finding a bakery in NYC that would do a relatively small wedding cake (35 guests) for a reasonable price. Many places flat out told me that it was not worth the effort to make a cake so small. Butterfly though was as accommodating as could be -- especially helpful since I don't live in NYC but was getting married there. Our tasting was incredible (and free! a rarity); their unique flavor combinations cannot be found anywhere else. We wound up going with a simple Swiss dot with twisted rope design, and the cake was so pretty! We had a lemon cake with honey-ginger buttercream filling -- perfect for summer. Everyone was RAVING about how delicious the cake was. And lastly, Butterfly was significantly cheaper than any other bakery - in fact, the final product, including delivery, was close to $200 cheaper than any other bakery I could find. An absolute gem of a business!
The team at Butterfly Bakeshop, including Kimberly who coordinated our order is simply wonderful! We waited a litttttle late to order our cake, and they worked with us quickly to supply a beautiful and delicious cake for our wedding. The at-home tasting process is smart and easy, and the cake was absolutely perfect for our night!
I found a picture of a wedding cake I fell in love with and Butterfly Bakeshop replicated the wedding cake perfectly and scaled it down to size for my wedding with 40 guests. Everyone at my wedding raved about the wedding cake and said not only was it beautiful, the cake and buttercream had excellent texture, moisture and flavor. Quite simply, everyone loved it. Butterfly Bakeshop makes incredible cakes, their prices are reasonable and they are a pleasure to work with.
We are so happy that you and your guests loved the cake. We thought is was really pretty too. We look forward to celebrating with you in the future!
We ordered a small cutting cake (chocolate buttercream with vanilla cake) and 180 cupcakes for our guests with various flavors (cookies and cream, peanut butter, passion fruit, and Aztec chocolate). Everything was DELICIOUS and very affordable. We actually had the cupcakes double as favors (using those cute boxes) and made our OWN cupcake tiers from a Dollar Store to cut costs. Gorgeous.
The service also made Butterfly Bakeshop an easy choice. I love the woman who works there -- she spent a ton of time talking to us during our tasting and was very helpful.
After the wedding, we froze the leftover cupcakes and ate them for dinner for days after the wedding - so delicious.
I never remember wedding cakes/cupcakes, but you can't forget a dessert from Butterfly Bakeshop! Well done!!!
Butterfly Bakeshop was excellent and easy to work with. All of my communications with them were responded to promptly, and all three of the women I worked with were incredibly helpful and kind, whether it was by email or over the phone. The cake was truly delicious (we had a vanilla-orange cake, which I highly recommend)! We had the most simple design possible (by our choice), so I can't speak truly to their design prowess - but it looked lovely, and was just as we wanted. I will point out that if your cake is under $500, they do charge $50 for the tasting (which are two bite-size cupcakes for each flavor); but it's pretty easy to bump it over that mark, and then the tasting is included. Highly recommended!
We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. Working with Stacy and Kimberly was great. They answered all the questions we had, offered suggestions and were always quick to reply. The cake itself was sooooo delicious...I feel like every single guest commented on it and we couldn't have been happier to hear that. My husband and I both have a sweet tooth so the cake was a big deal for us. We tried 2 other places before a friend recommended Butterfly Bakeshop and once we tried their samples we knew it was a home run. The delivery went smooth (we got married in NYC) and they offered very specific, detailed instructions on how to store the cake and serve it at perfect room temeprature.
Our design was pretty simple/clean but it still looked beautiful. We were thrilled with the whole experience...A+ for the entire team at Butterfly Bakeshop - thank you for making our special night even sweeter!!!
Butterfly bakeshop was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end of the process. Our cake was not only beautiful but also DELICIOUS !!!!! We received many compliments!!!
Butterfly Bakeshop was an absolute pleasure to work with. They understood exactly what we were looking for. The cake design was simple and elegant. We chose vanilla cake with Nutella buttercream alternating with a layer of chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream, and both tasted absolutely delicious. My husband and I received so many compliments and we were very happy with our cake.
Butterfly Bakeshop is absolutely amazing! I planned my wedding from Florida and they were very accommodating and helpful. My cake was beautiful and tasted even better than it looked. They also gave the best price of everyone I contacted. I will recommend them to any and everyone.
We chose a small but intricate cake and it came out beautifully - our photos are amazing and the cake was delicious!
The team was very responsive and extremely professional - it was a pleasure working with them and I highly recommend them to other brides.
We are glad to hear that you loved your cake! Large or small we strive to create the cake you dreamed of. We look forward to celebrating with you in the future.
Butterfly Bakeshop makes it easy! The guide to building your own cake within your budget is unlike any other vendor and so user friendly. The cakes we had tasted delicious and everyone loved it. We kept it very simple, but the 4-tiered cake looked beautiful.
What an awesome experience it was to use Butterfly Bakeshop for my wedding cake! They listened to exactly what I wanted, made suggestions based on the info I gave them, and overall helped with everything!
We went in for a tasting and the cake was absolutely delicious! I had MANY guests tell me they usually do not like wedding cake and that this one was delish! We went with a lemon cake with raspberry jam filling and a vanilla cake with raspberry buttercream!
We had a 3 tier rectangular cake by the way!
The cake once it arrived was stunning!!!! It looked better than I could have imagined :)
Could not have been happier with Butterfly Bakeshop and I absolutely recommend them 100% and will use them again if I ever need a fancy cake!
On our wedding day we agonized over every detail to make sure things were just perfect. And everything came off just as we planned - perfectly. But now, two weeks after the wedding, it seems the one thing people remember and talk about the most is the cake! Now, granted, it WAS the best wedding cake by far, according to...well, EVERYONE... But hey what about all that other stuff? You mean I could have ONLY ordered a Butterfly Bakeshop cake and that's all I would have needed to make this a memorable event that everybody talks about for weeks? NOW you tell me!
Take all the stress out of the cake decision - just order from Butterfly. Seriously, just do it.
We are so happy that we helped make your wedding day memorable and we are glad that your day was perfect!
Having researched many bakeries in search of a great wedding cake we kept coming across Butterfly Bakeshop.
Upon contacting the shop and speaking with Sarah we knew we had made the right decision to move forward with them. Sarah did a great job of communicating with us over all the details. They worked with us on a design for the cake which implemented our monogram from the invitation along with our wedding colors and flowers. Calla Lilies topped off the cake.
Sarah invited us to the shop for a tasting which was very helpful and of course very delicious. It was a hard choice to make given cake, frosting and a selection of fillings. It was all well worth it when the big day finally came and we received so many compliments. Though not exorbitant in price it was money well spent.
I just can't say enough about Butterfly Bakeshop.
We asked for a custom caked based on the painting The Kiss. Our vision was surpassed 10 times over. We couldn't have dreamt up a better cake. More than that, it was delicious!
I would recommend Butterfly Bakeshop to anyone. More than that, if they were to choose someone else I would do everything I could to talk them out of it. From the tasting to the delivery to the visual appeal and deliciousness this truly was a cake worth remembering.
Butterfly Bakeshop and their fantastic cake played a huge role in making our special day even more special.
THANK YOU GUYS!!!!
It was a pleasure to work with Sarah at Butterfly Bake Shop. The cake turned out beautifully, exactly as I had envisioned - and it was absolutely delicious. We went the a la carte route, and chose a 3 tier cake with ribbons and roses. There were so many flavors to choose from, but we ultimately went with marble cake/cookies and cream filling. Delicious!! And, best of all, very reasonably priced for NYC. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Butterfly to anyone looking for a special occasion cake.
I just had my wedding over the weekend - I had put off looking for a bakery for my wedding cake, but Sarah and her team at Butterfly Bakeshop were so accommodating, helpful and easy to work with. They created a cake sample kit for my husband and me, and they also worked with the venue to work out the delivery of the cake - one less thing for me to worry about! And they also had a great value for cakes, which was like the icing on the cake!!
Thank you so much!
Butterfly Bakeshop made the most delicious wedding cake for my wedding last Friday night. I ordered their chocolate cake with buttercream vanilla frosting, not only was it delicious but it was beautiful as well. I am so happy with my choice of Butterfly Bakeshop, I would highly recommend it to any future brides!
We were getting very disheartened when trying to find our wedding cake until we met Sarah from Butterfly Bakeshop. she was so responsive and helpful.
We were looking for simple elegant cake which should have been easy to find in NYC but Butterfly was the ONLY place we found that could possibly deliver that. Truth be told we were still skeptical when we went for our tasting since it seemed too good to be true that you could do an ala carte cake that was going to taste great as well.
We were beyond surprised and knew we found our cake before we even left our tasting. The biggest challenge we had at that point was narrowing down the choices. Sarah was beyond accommodating and helpful in helping us finalize each layer as far as cake and filling-- The final product was perfect not just visually and in decoration but the tastes were just as amazing as we remembered and all of our guests remarked on how much they enjoyed the cake! We highly recommend working with Sarah at Butterfly and look forward to the next occasion we have to work with her.
Found Butterfly Bakeshop while looking for bakery for our wedding cake. The owner's video so inspired me that I wanted them to do our cake. Sarah is a "Gem"! She helped me fine tune the design from a traditional magnolia theme to a wonderful New York Skyline theme. All of our guest raved about the design and once they tasted the cake, they were blown away! They all said it was the best wedding cake they have ever eaten. Coming from a bunch of Southern cooks that's a BIG compliment! Thanks Butterfly Bakeshop and Sarah for making our 32 year wait for a "same sex wedding" more than perfect! It was a dream come true and you helped!
