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.

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!

Butterfly Bakeshop, and in particular, Sarah - were wonderful. Sarah answered my countless questions and volleyed several emails back and forth while we created a new cake they had not done before. I had a very special surprise request for my husband and they delivered. Everyone at the wedding was surprised and impressed by the detail of the eagle and the sharp red of the cake. Spot on Butterfly - thank you!

I highly recommend this bakery! They offer amazing choices for every palette! Our cake was a three-tiered cake, one layer chocolate with raspberry jam and two layers vanilla with vanilla bean frosting. ALL of our guests completely raved about it! They are extremely reasonable, and the cake looked so beautiful. Thank you!

Butterfly Bakeshop made the most stunning cake for my wedding recently. Everyone at the dinner commented on how beautiful and wonderful it tasted. More than half of our guests asked for their contact after the dinner. I highly recommend them to every bride.

Butterfly Bakeshop made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake for out October wedding. We dealt mostly with Diana, who was a pleasure. Everything from the cake tasting to the final product was a wonderful experience. We even changed the design of our cake a few weeks before the wedding and Butterfly Bakeshop accommodated the change without any fuss.
The end result was the most gorgeous cake. And it was beyond delicious. We had a white cake with both chocolate and salted caramel buttercreams. The best cake I've ever eaten.
I'm already trying to think of upcoming occasions to have them make another cake for me!

UPDATE:In addition to all listed below, another reason we love these folks: We were in a major flood zone for Hurricane Sandy in downtown Manhattan. We had saved the top of our wedding cake for our one year anniversary but when the power in our freezer went out for a week, so went our cake topper. We told our story to Butterfly, and they offered a no-charge replacement on our next anniversary. It's the little touches and good deeds in a weary world that make folks like this stand out.
We ordered a 4-layered red velvet cake with cream cheese icing on the inside and buttercream frosting on the outside. The whole process from the first cake tasting to the delivery was super simple, and they gave me exactly what I wanted. I've heard interesting stories about the actual taste of wedding cakes and was very surprised when mine tasted....AWESOME! In fact, every last piece was gone in no time and we received so many compliments on how yummy it tasted. This is a great place to go to for a delicious cake for a decent price.
