Brooklyn the caterer at Magnolia's went above and beyond to ensure my wedding went smoothly! She kept in great contact with me when I wasn't available, and kept my order perfect to how I wanted it! Plus, she and her team stayed late for me at their catering location so so could get the cake myself all the way from Monmouth county, New Jersey! Thank you for the most delicious, perfect, decadent cake ever!!!!

Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier in Chicago, IL has a longstanding relationship with Magnolia's Chicago location, so if you use Magnolia for your Crystal Gardens event you get a great deal. To top it off, Magnolia (regardless of location) is absolutely delicious. I have had their stuff both in NYC and Chicago, and it's heavenly every time. For our wedding, the wonderful Stephanie was our contact person at Magnolia. She prepared a beautiful tasting with us, looked over designs, spent a lot of time emailing ideas and quotes back and forth until we figured out exactly what we wanted: a two-tiered sparkle cake with a gazillion mini sparkle cupcakes. AMAZING!!! SO beautiful, so delicious (their Hummingbird flavor is the best!!!), and so easy to work with! Thanks Stephanie at Magnolia!

I lived near the original Magnolia in the West Village for 20 years so I always dreamed of having them do my wedding cake. But I was getting married an hour outside NYC, and my venue provided a free cake, so I thought fine, I'll use the free place. I went to a tasting and it was gross--"buttercream" frosting that was actually Crisco. (I know shortening holds up well at room temp, but I hate the taste.) I tried another bakery in NJ, figuring Magnolia was too far away . Also gross. So I finally did what I should have done in the first place--I called Magnolia. It turns out they deliver in a refrigerated truck to my venue all the time (for a fee.) And after talking to other bakeries who were chaotic and seemed like they'd never handled a wedding before, our contact, Brooklyn, at Magnolia was SO organized. She had it down to a science. She set up a lovely tasting for us at the Upper West Side location, with a lace tablecloth. We got to chose flavors for three mini cakes (and bring the leftovers home with us). We were trying to decide between getting a big tiered wedding cake, and doing a bunch of little cakes as a buffet. Brooklyn gave us tons of options and suggestions on what cakes/sizes would work for a buffet and even with the $100/hour delivery fee and a small fee for cute polka dot decorations on two cakes, we came in on budget! We got a chocolate cake, a vanilla cake, a banana cake, a carrot cake, and banana pudding shots, plus we rented cake stands to display it all. It was not only gorgeous but SO DELICIOUS. Our guests died over how good it all was. If you are getting married within an hour or so of NYC, Magnolia is the only way to go! Totally worth it! Ask for Brooklyn, she will make it all go smoothly.

My husband and I absolutely love magnolia bakery. We have been coming for years and have always had an amazing experience. Ordering our wedding cake was quite different though. (We ordered our cake from the Los Angeles Magnolia.)
The cake tasting was amazing, it went smoothly, we were given so much information. We were told we could call or email the bakery to order our cake, so we could have time to think about everything. I called a few days later, asked for the woman that handles wedding cakes, and the young man on the phone was so rude and unprofessional. I was told she was not in, and wouldn't be in for a while, but was not asked if I wanted to leave a message, or offered a different person to talk to. So I emailed the woman who handles cakes and two weeks later still had never received an email back. I called again, and was told she was on vacation, I had to ask if someone else could help me as the young man on the phone sat silent. After I was given another email address, I asked if I could speak to someone on the phone instead, which apparently could not be done.

So after sending three emails to this new email address and numerous phone calls, I finally drove down to the shop and explained everything that had happened and asked if I could just order my cake and cupcakes in person. The man helping me was very polite and apologetic, he took my order, and told me that he would turn it into the woman that handles these orders and I would receive a call and email of the order the following day. Three days later I still had not received any of this so I called and emailed every number and email address I had. About a week later I received an email from the store manager saying my order was sent to the New York bakery. It took a few weeks to get an invoice and actually pay for the cake, but we finally were able to.

We love their cakes so much we didn't want to order from another bakery, but I will never order a cake from them again.

Magnolia Bakery provided the perfect three tier wedding cake for our celebration dinner. Everyone was super helpful, particularly Ben, who arranged our last minute cake stand hire and confirmed all the day-of plans! There were no issues with delivery at all - perfect and professional! The cake itself was absolutely delicious, particularly the red velvet tier! I have to mention that our cake tasting was one of the best experiences during our wedding planning - we met with Kerry, and were given four sample cakes to try, plenty of iced tea and the little "Mr & Mrs" embossed forks just added a lovely touch! Kerry answered all our questions, gave us plenty of inspiration and ideas, and sent us away after the tasting with the remainder of our cakes and a few other sweet treats -- if there was no question we wanted a Magnolia Bakery before the tasting, it was a done deal after!

Magnolia was the perfect choice for our wedding cake! The tasting was fun, memorable, and they sent us home with treats. We should have ordered even more than three tiers as our guests went back for seconds and we ran out of cake. We didn't think people liked cake that much and had other desserts, but everyone flocked to the cake! Victoria was a huge help and answered all of my questions promptly. She also worked to customize the cake by making it a confetti cake, my husband's favorite. I always hear Magnolia referred to as expensive, but I compared with a few other vendors and their prices were quite reasonable. Overall fantastic experience, and we would recommend them to anyone who wants a surefire, delicious wedding cake.

We opted for a cupcake tower instead of a traditional wedding cake and LOVED our assortment from Magnolia. We live in Manhattan and frequent the shops often but wanted our wedding guests (most of whom were from out of town) to get to experience them as well....the cupcakes were a huge hit and a fun little touch to our July 4th wedding with sparklers and champagne added for our toast.
