We offer private tastings as well as Tastings To Go.
What are your tasting hours?
Wednesdays are the day we try and arrange all our tastings and pick-ups. Speak with our Cake Consultant about scheduling.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Pricing is based on design. We offer our budget-frinedly Wedding Cakes a la Carte program so couples can design their personal custom cake while staying in budget. We also create one-of-a-kind custom cakes.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
We customize each cake. With our Wedding Cakes a la Carte program couples chose their base cake, add trim and then add decorative items from a list of pre-designed items. The cake is customized by the couple and helps them stay in budget.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
We prefer you book a few months in advance but have added cakes to our schedule a few weeks out. During the high season months we do sell out so it is suggested you confirm as far in advance as possible.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
We will put the cake in place on the cake cake table so the florist has full access to decorate it.

We suggest working with your venue, designer or planner to arrange the accessories you need to match your wedding decor.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes, we do offer delivery. In Manhattan below 99th Street we charge $35. Outside this area we can provide our delivery fee based on the delivery location address.

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 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!

Butterfly Bakeshop is simply the best kept secret in the wedding cake industry! Our cake was absolutely delicious and didn't cost a fortune. We had trouble deciding between all the delicious fillings/cakes so we ultimately did two tiers of red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and two tiers of vanilla cake with cookies n cream filling. Our guests raved about how delicious the cake was and enjoyed being able to sample both flavors. Brides, don't hesitate to work with this great vendor :-)

Holy deliciousness! We ordered a small sweetheart cake for our wedding, and could not have been more pleased with the result. The cake looked exactly like the picture we had chosen, and the flavors were amazing. Unfortunately, I didn't get too much of it because my husband ate the leftovers the next day!!! He could not stop talking about how delicious it was.

The customer services was excellent as well. I never had to wait more than a day for a response to an email I had sent or a question I had. Stacey was my contact (I think she's the owner) and was so professoinal and helpful.

We changed out minds several times over the 6 months. At every time the staff was fast to respond and very patient. In the end the cake was perfect. Exactly to budget, tasted amazing and was delivered with the most friendly of service and a phone call to the baker.
We had the cake delivered the day before for convenience, and wow did it stay fresh. Thanks a million .... you decorations and service was AAA and the cake quotes were only a third of what we had received elsewhere. Super proud to have chosen you guys.

Absolutely perfect experience! The cake flavors were delicious (we went with lemon cake and raspberry jam filling and vanilla cake with raspberry buttercream filling). The cake exceeded my expectations and was gorgeous! We had a 3 tier rectangular cake.

From the beginning I had a rough idea what I wanted, they showed me examples, gave me ideas and made suggestions. Once I settled on what I wanted the cake was what I hoped and more!!!

Highly recommend!

I am so happy that I went with Butterfly for my wedding cake! The cake consultant, Sarah, was very helpful as well as patient as I went through my various ideas. I was provided with 6 different flavor combinations to choose from, and ultimately went with the chocolate cake with bourbon pecan praline filling...so delicious! We shared our first piece and then had another.
The cake was gorgeous, exactly what I wanted.
Great value for the money.
I highly recommend.

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.

OUTSTANDING!!!

I'm so glad we went with Butterfly for our wedding cake! It was as amazing as their team's customer service - we worked with Sarah the entire way through and she was terrific, especially arranging the tasting for us and helping us design the look of the cakes. We went with the passion fruit buttercream for our wedding cake and the salted carmel for a birthday cake. Both were out of this world delicious! It it's not enough to get a five star tasting cake, Butterfly also proved their A+ rating in the presentation of their cakes! The fondant and design was perfect and they were able to do two tropical birds at the top, as we had shared some photos of the look we were going for.

We will definitely be using Butterfly Bakeshop in the future for birthday and celebration cakes!

We really enjoyed working with Butterfly Bakeshop! One of the great features they have is the Cake A La Carte program, which is wonderful because it helps out people on any budget. We were able to build our own cake and keep it within our budget.

We really enjoyed meeting with Sarah and having the cake tasting (we were allowed 6 tastings) and were even more pleased that we could choose two flavors and have them for alternating tiers.

On our wedding day, our cake was beautiful - it was a 5 tier cake with orange bands and orange calla lilies (with a beautiful yellow fondant bow holding them together). It was absolutely delicious and we received many compliments on the flavors. We were extremely happy with their work and would use them again!

We were so pleased with the beautiful cake that the designers made at Butterfly Bakeshop! I gave them 2 picture samples of what I was looking for in a design and they surpassed my expectations by far!

Our movie themed wedding cake consisted of several photos of my husband and me in a film bordered frame on all the tiers with 2 film rolls at the top which cascaded down the cake and had our pictures microsized on the film roll as well. Everybody loved it especially my film friends! The cake was not only beautiful but tasted amazing as well! They were so wonderful to work with and made our dream cake come true!!

Butterfly bakeshop was wonderful! They have a great website where you can see tons of pictures and get ideas of what you want. I work long hours and had a short time to plan my wedding, so I wasn't able to come into the shop to browse or talk to a cake designer. This was a problem for other bakeries I contacted, but with Butterfly, I used the design-you-own cake option from the website and got everything done via email with the store manager. All my emails were answered promptly and professionally. Since I wasn't able to do a tasting during their normal hours, Butterfly prepared a "to go" tasting for me to take home and try with my fiance. Everything was delicious and I really appreciated their willingness to accomodate my schedule. The cake ended up being very reasonably priced, gorgeous, and delicious. I could not have been happier with my experience with Butterfly Bakeshop.

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.

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! Read less

When I was on the hunt for a perfect wedding cake for my September 2012 wedding, I used the New York Magazine listing of the top cake places in the city and researched pricing/ set up tastings for about 5 of them. Hands down, Butterfly Bakeshop was the best tasting cake AND we had the added bonus of it being the most reasonably priced. A bridesmaid and I went to the tasting and they had mini cupcakes for both of us in each of the 4 flavor combinations that we wanted to try. The tasting was free unlike some of the others that I had to pay for (like Momofuko). All of them were delicious, but I ultimately went with the vanilla cake with cookies and cream buttercream filling.

We ordered the traditional 3-tier cake for 100 people (although it easily fed our 160 guests) with the ribbon band decoration for $475. We put our own orchids on it (real flowers) although the cakeshop does beautiful , edible orchids as well. I could not have been happier with the cake—it looked classy and beautiful and it was delicious. I could eat the cake by itself without any icing, it was soft, moist and perfectly dense. The icing was also excellent and different from the standard flavors that I’ve had at other weddings. Diana, the office manager, was very pleasant to work with—always following up at the right times (even when I would forget) and coordinated the drop off with our contact at the Boathouse without even having to involve me…which is great when you are a bride with a million things to do/worry about! I have already recommended this place to my friends and will use them for any other special occasion that needs a cake!

My wedding was on Sept 8 and we got a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and bourbon-pecan-praline buttercream filling. It was so delicious! Many people came up to me afterwards to comment on how they have never had such a delicious wedding cake. Diana was a pleasure to work with...I put her in touch with my venue and didn't really think about it again until my husband (!) and I were cutting into it at the reception. The pictures on the website are totally true to life, it was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Considering that it was the best cake we tried, compounded by the fact that it was also the cheapest, makes Butterfly a great choice for any bride!

I cannot recommend this bakeshop enough. We had a fantastic experience working with Diana who was super flexible and helpful and the cake was amazing. Everyone commented on how delicious it was and we loved how it looked. Their prices are also incredibly reasonable--you won't find a better deal in manhattan!

I was recommended Butterfly Bakeshop from the florist we were using and I couldn't have been more pleased. The Office Manager Diana was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and made me feel 100% comfortable that I was going to get exactly what I asked for. The wedding cake was gorgeous, exactly as we'd discussed. But most of all, it tasted fantastic. The guests as well as the groom and myself ate every last bit of it :). Thank you Butterfly Bakeshop for helping making my wedding day a success!!

Diana and team did an awesome job on our cake. I found them by various searches because I was looking for a more casual, simpler cake that didn’t cost a fortune. The price was just right and it was delicious. I’d highly recommend them.

Butterfly Bakeshop was the easiest and most pleasant vendor to work with. I had a picture of the cake I wanted and they recreated it EXACTLY. I also added a monogram which looked really nice, and again, was exactly how I wanted it. All their cake flavors were delicious, so it was hard to narrow it down. I ended up going with 3 different flavors for the 4 tiers. My contact, Diana, was really nice and so easy to work with. She always followed up and made sure everything was on track (with payments, delivery, final decisions). I also did my research beforehand and they were very reasonably priced. When you are working with a million vendors and have a million things to do for the wedding, it is great to have one of them be easy. I was extremely happy with the cake, as well as the service, and would highly recommend them. I actually can't wait to have another big party where I can order a cake from them!

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 everything from my budget to the design and it was all seamless. Highly recommend!!

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.

I stumbled across Butterfly Bakeshop when I was doing a search for inexpensive wedding cakes. As much as I love wedding cake, I just couldn't justify spending a bunch on money on a cake. Butterfly does all types of cakes, but the thing that appealed to us was that they offer a cake under $400 where you can pick from one of 5 or 6 pre-set designs. We had a tasting and the cake was delicious. A month of so after I booked the wedding cake, I contacted Butterfly about doing a Groom's cake for me. They were able to make a Bruce Springsteen cake that is an exact replica of the front of my husband's favorite Bruce Springsteen album. The cake was a surprise for my husband and he absolutely loved it! If you're looking for a pretty, tasty, and inexpensive cake option, this a great company.
