Fantastic Work of Art! posted 8/16/2014

Amy and her Team did an amazing job. Planning a wedding hundreds of miles away from New York and your only communication is from phone and email can be stressful. I designed our dream wedding cake and after talking to Amy and emailing her all my information she assured me everything will turn out. Our cake was chocolate, strawberry filling and iced with mascarpone. The big day came and at the reception the cake arrived and we were just blown away. The dream cake was definitely a dream come true. Everyone was just in amazement. All the details were right on point. Even the flavors that were chosen were even delicious. Thanks again Amy and your Team for making our day one that will not be forgotten.
Sincerely, Dave & Fellie

Simple Cake posted 6/2/2014 (modified 6/2/2014)

Our cake was a two-tiered chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and vanilla buttercream frosting. It was a tasty cake. We wanted to change the design that the baker initially came up with, but she said it would cost another $100 to meet with her. (We read another brides review, which stated that her re-design session was free and the baker was very accommodating). We decided to e-mail her the changes. They were very difficult to get a hold of after our initial meeting, which was disappointing because I would have liked to discuss other options for our budget. We did not want to spend nearly $700 on such a simple cake for 40 guests (we did not have sugar flowers) and feel we should have gone elsewhere. I read a review before going there that stated that they really work with a couples budget, but we did not get that in our communications with the bakery. No one asked us what our budget was or offered options to the changes we made- they could have suggested adding at least one sugar flower since it is their specialty.

Beautiful, Delicious Cake! posted 11/19/2013 (modified 11/20/2013)

We loved our cake from Sugar Flower Cake Shop! We had a thorough tasting and design consultation meeting with Amy, and the cake the team created was beautiful and exactly what we had envisioned! Perhaps more importantly than being beautiful, the cake was delicious! The cake was the perfect cake texture (light and moist), and the NYC Rooftop Honey Buttercream icing was perfect - not too sweet but certainly sweet enough for my sweet tooth. I'm excited to receive our 1st-year anniversary mini-cake - they don't let you eat cake that's been frozen for a year! :)

i was really excited by this place when i found it. the tasting is awesome, too--free cake and sparkling rose--who can resist! the people who work here are SO sweet, and the cake is yummy, but for the amount i paid, i was expecting perfection. so i was really disappointed when i saw my cake the day of and felt it was quite different from what i wanted. i was pretty adamant about wanting texture, and not liking smooth wedding cakes--i provided several photos and amy even remarked how obvious that desire of mine was. but when i saw my cake that day, it was completely smooth. i was pretty shocked! for the price... i would have hoped any confusion would have been addressed with me before that day.
oh well. i think it tasted good at least, but i only got a tiny bite!

Amazing Cake! posted 9/3/2013

Amy and her team at Sugar Flower Cake Shop are amazing! I love the wedding cake she designed for me, and the cake was so delicious! I had an antique cake topper (used by my grandmother when she got married in 1950) and Amy designed a beautiful cake, drawing inspiration from the details of the topper. My grandmother was so happy and proud when she saw it! We went with the champagne cake (champagne used in the cake mix instead of milk) and it was so great! The price for cake was very fair as well. Definitely hire Amy and Sugar Flower Cake Shop for a unique and delicious wedding cake!

Distinctive and delicious! posted 8/15/2013

I was the caterer on this wedding and as such, I contact Amy whenever I need a cake that is going to really make a unique impression. Not only is her customer service second to none, but her attention to detail and ability to customize your cake to any and all specifications is truly remarkable.

The bride and groom were so happy with the design of their cake that they were practically in tears when it arrived at the party space, as was my entire catering staff! They circled it oohing and aahhing the entire time and believe me, we've seen everything!

The best part is that not only was the cake beautiful, it was also delicious- moist and flavorful and not too sweet. That's because Amy uses local, sustainable ingredients and she takes pride in all of the flavors and combinations that she offers.

If you want a cake and customer service that will impress you and your guests call Amy at Sugar Flower Cake Shop. As an industry professional, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Best decision I made posted 8/14/2013

When my wife and I were engaged and going through the whole daunting process of finding different vendors, more than 1 person told me about Amy and Sugar Flower Cake Shop, which told me something right there that good work gets around. We met with Amy and Leah (baker extraordinaire) for a fun tasting and my wife enjoyed the idea of custom-building the flavors of her cake. When I thought her idea would be too tough to carry out, Amy didn't even bat an eye saying it wouldn't be a problem!

Fast forward to the big day, the cake was gorgeous and it tasted just as good as it looked! I've been to too many weddings where the cake was flat-out gross and sacrificed flavor for design, but not with Amy. When I told her later on that we enjoyed digging through the leftovers for a whole week after, she cracked up laughing. It probably wasn't a good idea but it was too delicious to let go!

If you're considering checking out Amy and Sugar Flower Cake Shop, you won't find a better and more savvy cake baker. Plus your guests will give you lots of compliments on the cake to boot.

Cake & Groom's Cake posted 1/24/2013

I had a wonderful experience working with Amy at Sugar Flower Cake Shop. She really blew away mine and my husband's expectations. When she asked if she could basically surprise us with the cake design we did not hesitate to say yes. And let me tell you, we LOVED it. Not only did the cake smell delicious from a far, it also tasted amazing!

Sugar Flower Cake Shop also created a "Tough Mudder" grooms cake for my husband which light up his eyes and tasted just as great as the wedding cake.

You won't be disappointed!

The most amazing cake! posted 4/11/2012 (modified 4/11/2012)

From our first conversation I was sure I wanted to work with Amy. Not only does she support local, organic and sustainable farming whenever possible, she was just so down to earth and really made me feel like she genuinely wanted to create my wedding cake. The way Amy sets up her tastings, like little mini-parties, is so different and so much fun. You get a chance to relax, sip a little champagne and sample all her amazing flavors of cake, filling and icings. We picked the almond cake with strawberries and honey buttercream and the chocolate cake with salted caramel filling. Absolutely amazing! Over half of our guests were out-of-towners so I had extra slices of cake for everyone to take with them. Thank goodness we ordered way more cake than I thought we'd need because guests were asking if they could take more than one. At the hotel the next morning there was actually bartering going on among our guests for the last slices of our wedding cake. Not only was the cake delicious, it was also gorgeous! I wanted a simple ivory cake with cascades of flowers - simple, elegant but still make a statement. Amy delivered! She was so easy to work with in the design process. I could really tell she listened and was focused on designing my perfect wedding cake. Her sugar flowers are just gorgeous - so detailed and just exquisite.

What a cake! posted 4/10/2012

Amy and her team did an phenomenal job on my wedding cake. Not only did it look amazing (seriously, people just wanted to take pictures of the cake or with the cake!) but it was delicious. I went with an almond cake with passion fruit and honey buttercream, where else can you get that!?!?

In an area where you are over populated with cake makers, Amy definitely stands out. The quality of work her team did on the cake was so unique and detailed that it went along with the entire theme of the wedding. Very lucky to have found Sugar Flower Cake Shop. I'll recommend them to EVERYONE!

Delicious! posted 3/5/2012

I would absolutely recommend The Sugar Flower Cake Shop. Amy was very accommodating in our decision making process and met with me twice to discuss her business. Her tasting gave a faithful representation of the finished product and there were plenty of flavor combinations to choose from. She took my budget into account and designed a beautiful cake that fit perfectly with the décor and feel of my wedding, including sugar roses that matched my bridesmaids’ bouquets and the satin ribbon I had used in several areas to rim the bottom of each layer. Amy was able to add on an order of gluten-free cupcakes for several guests with allergies. Through out the process, Amy was professional and a pleasure to work with.

Amy and her team at Sugar Flower Cake Shop do absolutely exceptional work and I am thrilled to recommend her services.

From the initial consultation to the wedding day itself, Amy made the creative process seamless and enjoyable for my client. She was really flexible, took my client's input into careful consideration, and made each small adjustment to the design so that the bride's vision was met to a T.

Amy really worked hard to produce a beautiful product that not only tasted fabulous (while staying organic and local), but was a real jaw-dropper! I heard so many guests comment on how uniquely stunning the hand-crafted sugar detailing was. If I could rate Amy higher than a 5 on her quality of service, I would!

Best wedding cake!!!! posted 2/4/2012

Sugar Flower Cake Shop is wonderful! Amy is an absolute pleasure to work with!! This was one of the best experiences of planning our entire wedding. From our initial consultation with Amy, to the cake tasting, to the final review of our design - it was so much fun! She knew exactly what we wanted - and the cake was perfect!!! We created a three-tier cupcake tower with cutting cake on top. The orchid sugar flowers were gorgeous! And the cake was absolutely delicious!! Our guests are still talking about our beautiful wedding cake. It was exactly what we dreamed it would be. Thank you, Amy!!!

I can't imagine working with any other baker. Right from the start Amy was an absolute delight. She really listened to my husband and I as we share what we envisioned as our perfect wedding cake. Her sugar flower artistry is exceptional and the taste of our cake was so far beyond our expectation. Our guests had nothing but rave reviews. My mother went as far to beg me for a small cake with the same flavors as her birthday gift and trust me, she's a hard woman to please. You simply cannot go wrong. From person-ability to culinary pleasure, Amy is the absolute best!

Gorgeous Cake posted 9/25/2011 (modified 9/26/2011)

We recently had our wedding cake made by Amy at Sugar Flower Cake Shop. It was the most beautiful cake! She is truly an artist. The only suggestion I would have is that she should tell you that some of the actual cake is artifical. We didnt know that only the bottom tier was real so we had a hard time finding the real cake while we were doing our cake cutting. It made for some funny photos though so it was fine :)

Vendor Comments

Oh, Maggie, how unfortunate! The staff at the Boathouse knew that the top layers were faux and that we prepared sheet cake to ease the cutting process since you had so many guests. (Otherwise, it takes too long for the kitchen to take apart the cak...

A lovely place posted 6/15/2011 (modified 6/17/2011)

Amy was a pleasure to work with, she was so lovely and pleasant. We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted and Amy created a lovely design, which fit the wedding theme perfectly! The cake was also very tasty, and everyone had more than one piece! Amy also made our wedding favors on a pretty short notice. My only small complaint is that the date on the favors was wrong (which is why I gave 4 starts for the otherwise great quality). She gave us a good discount for it, though. I would definitely recommend the lovely Amy and the Sugar Flower Cake Shop.

Vendor Comments

Olena, thank you SO much for the wonderful feedback. I do wish that I could go back and fix that date issue. We had it right in the first batch, but in the final printing, I somehow typed the wrong date. I'm glad that you feel appropriately compen...

Absolutely Fabulous! posted 12/1/2010

I absolutely loved my wedding cake. Not only did I love the look but the cake tasted out of this world! Amy was able to get every detail perfectly as I had envisioned. The cake was fresh and moist, the filling was heavenly and the nyc buttercream icing was smooth and creamy. From the beginning Amy was patient, helpful, flexible, and just a joy to work with. Everything was perfect! Thanks again Amy! <3

Amy is fabulous! posted 11/16/2010

The sugar flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Amy was such a pleasure to work with. I had so many wonderful comments about the cake. I chose a Cupcake tower with sugar flowers and a cutting cake on top. The cake was so delicious but not too sweet and so beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about Amy. I did not want your typical wedding cake and it was obvious that Amy had the talent and the creativity to help me create a cake that was unique. But the truth is that she made it easy.
