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.

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!

We were so thrilled with the outcome of our wedding cake from Butterfly Bakeshop! Our pictures were were framed with a film border (sprocket holes and all) on all three tiers with a special quote on the middle tier. The top had 2 film roll canisters with the film cascading down the side of the cake with more of our pictures on the rolls of film. It was more beautiful and colorful than we could've planned ourselves!
Butterfly Bakeshop was a joy to work with and so professional and helpful throughout the whole process and kept my stress level down concerning the cake. Not only was the cake beautiful, it was so delicious as well - orange vanilla cake and passionfruit filling -- YUMM!

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.

Even people who were self-proclaimed cake haters liked this cake...and I was totally skeptical about it just because it was not very expensive and I did not have time to shop around too much. The service was excellent though and the product was incredible. I can't recommend this bakeshop enough!

We got married at the Central Park Boathouse this September and were ecstatic by how delicious and beautiful our cake was. We asked for it to be classicly done with pink flowers cascading. It was perfect! Also, we went with the chocolate cake and the bourbon pecan praline flavor. It was outrageous! Definitely try it. Finally, I just want to say that Diana was wonderful to work with. She accomodated everythign from my budget to the design and it was all seamless. Highly recommend!!
