We ordered six of their 10 inch cakes for our wedding, and they were a huge hit! Everyone raved about how delicious they were - the only complaint was that they weren't able to try each of the 6 flavors! My absolute favorite is the lemon cake, but really they were all delicious.

There was one minor hiccup, but it was quickly fixed by the bakery before we even realized. My father and a friend went to pick up the cakes, and were initially only given 5 of the six, but the bakery called within minutes, so they were able to go back quickly to pick up the last one. And they gave my father and friend a free cupcake for the trouble, which I know they appreciated!

When it came to choosing a place to provide our cake/cupcakes, my groom and I knew right away that we wanted to use Brown Betty. Having lived and worked so close to their store in Philadelphia, we can just never get enough of them. We hoped that our family and friends would feel the same way on the wedding day....
And boy, did they ever!! Everyone could not stop raving about how delicious the cupcakes were. Many guests even admitted to having 3+ cupcakes each!

For our wedding, we had a cupcake tower, with the top tier being a small cake. We offered 6 different flavors of cupcakes. Brown Betty's cupcakes are very unique--the cake is actually poundcake, so they are very hearty, and the icing is perfect, not too sugary-sweet. The flavors are one of a kind as well. Our favorites are the sweet potato (similar to spice cake/pumpkin taste), raspberry filled, and red velvet. The cupcakes are large too!

Brown Betty only delivers within the Philadelphia area, so you must arrange pickup if you are further away.

The only thing I would warn you about...be sure you order EXTRA, because your guests will love them!
(We had 170 guests, ordered 220 cupcakes, and only had a few left!)

My cake was exactly like the picture I showed them and was delicious. The price was very low compared to other cake vendors.

After much searching and cupcake tasting throughout Philly and its suburbs for our wedding, Brown Betty had the most amazing cupcakes of all! They made us 4 flavors of cupcakes with a top 6" tier of red velvet (my favorite) for my husband and I to cut on top of the cupcake tower. However, the cake toppers we had made especially for the wedding were not delivered with the cupcakes that night so our venue found beautiful flowers from some of our arrangements to place on top instead. We were very disappointed but as soon as Cristal found out, she offered to reimburse us for the cost of those cake toppers since she knows we had them made just for the wedding. We were very impressed and appreciative in how they handled the situation, which luckily was our only hiccup on our wedding day. All in all, we were very happy with everything and our guests still talk about the cupcakes and have asked for Brown Betty's address many times since then!

Everything was amazing. The cupcakes were beautiful and delicious and reasonably priced. The only thing I would do over again is order more so I could bring home additional leftovers.

Overall we loved the wedding (cup)cakes we did with them. There were some bumps along the way that stemmed primarily from communication issues. Norrinda was hard to reach at time since she only came in on saturdays. Two weeks before the wedding the person in charge of accounts told us our final balance which was much higher then what Norrinda had discussed with us. After some back and forth it was all sorted out and they gave us the price that we were originally quoted by Norrinda but it did cause some mild anxiety.

With those communication issues aside, their cupcakes are AMAZING! We highly recommend the pineapple!
