Butterfly Bake Shop created my beautiful wedding cake for my 8/29/15 wedding in NYC. It is safe to say that I had written to over a dozen bakeries, and I found Stacy and her team to be the most fair, honest and responsive of all of my inquiries. We received everything we asked...

Even after a few drinks, surrounded by family, friends and cameras, my groom and I both exclaimed to eachother when we cut the cake, "wow that cake is amazing!" Thank you Butterfly Bake Shop for your responsiveness, willingness to create my unique vision and delivering my cake on time to my venue! I look forward to working with you for future celebrations!

Kindness and quality prevail. From the initial contact to the tasting and final design the staff are wonderful to work with.

The last thing you want for your wedding is to have to worry about the cake, and Butterfly made everything easy. I never set foot in butterfly, or tasted anything of theirs before it arrived, but only had conversations over email, basically took a leap of faith, and yet they... Read More managed to get us exactly what we wanted. Our wedding was 75 people, so we had a small white square cutting cake with a large peony flower (the flower was breathtakingly beautiful, even prettier than the website example) to serve to family, and then cupcakes containing the same fillings for the rest of the guests. The cake was absolutely gorgeous, the filling was delicious, and the cupcakes were FANTASTIC, the guests kept commenting on how good they were. Everything arrived ahead of time, with frequent communication between Butterfly and our reception venue. Furthermore it was surprisingly affordable, especially for NYC. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

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... Read More double as favors (using those cute boxes) and made our OWN cupcake tiers from a Dollar Store to cut costs.

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... Read More 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!

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... Read More 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!
