  • We can’t begin to thank Ladybird enough for preparing our wedding cakes. Our guests went out of their way to tell us how delicious they were and inquire where they came from. From the first moments of our tasting with Ladybird we knew that they were special and the right choice to satisfy our sweet teeth. The tasting process was unlike all of the other bakeries we considered. Other bakeries make you 4-6 cupcakes or small cakes in combinations you think you'll like. Ladybird puts together a platter of all the different components so you can mix and match as much as you want. We ended up getting 4 cakes (1 small one to cut and 3 large ones in varying flavors) because we couldn't decide...Every step of the process with Ladybird was so easy; we plan to get a cake for our anniversary every year! We dealt with a lot of vendors and are so grateful for their enthusiasm, professionalism, and final product. Thank you Ladybird!!!

  • When I lived in Park Slope and had to go out to do laundry, Ladybird was my go-to spot to get a coffee and treat (I love their turtle bars and Brooklyn Blackout cake). I moved away earlier this year, but returned to the neighborhood to get married. Ladybird was the obvious choice for our wedding cake. Buttercream frosting can be tricky—it runs the risk of either tasting like a stick of butter or saccharine sweet with too much powdered sugar. We had nothing to worry about with Ladybird, though! Our almond cake with raspberry filling and almond buttercream was delicious, and received many compliments from guests. Melanie did a beautiful job adding a pattern based on the lace of my dress. All in all, I highly recommend Ladybird for both casual drop-ins and special events.

  • Melanie was incredible. I sent her pictures of the cake we wanted for our wedding and it was perfect. On top of that, she was able to make the entire cake dairy free and delicious!

  • Melanie and the staff of Ladybird Bakery were a joy to work with. Our tasting was so much fun – we got to try something like 7 cakes, 6 fillings, and 4 frostings. We knew immediately upon tasting their cake that we needed to hire them – the lemon curd is to die for! We ordered a 5-tier cake with two different flavor combinations (lemon cake with lemon curd & strawberry jam with a vanilla buttercream frosting, and chocolate cake with chocolate ganache & raspberry jam with a vanilla buttercream frosting). It was a truly delicious and beautiful cake (at a great price)! We will definitely order special occasion cakes from them again.

  • Yum!! We used Ladybird to get a small cake to cut at our wedding, as well as many mini-cupcakes as a part of our dessert table. Melanie was extremely responsive throughout the whole process, and she really grasped what we were looking for with both our cupcakes and cake. The delivery was on time and everything was seamless. Oh and everything was DELISH! I've been going to this bakery for years to get true Brooklyn Blackout cakes, and was pleased to know that their other items are also delicious.

  • Ladybird makes our favorite birthday cakes, so it was a no brainer to ask them to make our wedding cake. It was delicious, beautiful and extremely well priced (best kept secret in our humble opinion). We also really appreciated the proactive, quick and clear communication from Melanie. She was extremely organized and it was lovely to know that we were in good hands. Skip out on the overpriced Brooklyn bakeries and get your cake at Ladybird!

  • Highly highly recommend Ladybird Bakery for wedding cake!! We wanted a cake that was above all delicious, and they 100% delivered. We got so many compliments. The tasting is a little unorthodox in that you get each part of the cake separately (filling, frosting, cake) and mix and match your own combinations. It was actually pretty fun though and encouraged conversation between me and my fiance. We ended up selecting the yellow cake with custard and raspberry fillings and cream cheese frosting, as well as a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and chocolate rum fillings and cream cheese frosting. Both delicious! Melanie is easy to work with, down to earth, and flexible. What more could you want?

  • Melanie @ Ladybird Bakery was a pleasure to work with. Her easygoing and laid back nature during the cake tasting process made creating our wedding cake combination a breeze. We ended up getting 2 different single-layer cakes since we couldn't decide and I'm so glad we did (we got the vanilla butter cake with cream cheese frosting & strawberry filling & brooklyn blackout cake). Typically at weddings, nobody really touches the cake but not in this case. Guests were raving about how delicious it was with most guests eating 2 pieces AND taking some home. It is 5 days later and we can't stop sneaking bites before we put it in the freezer. Would highly recommend Ladybird Bakery!

  • Melanie was a joy to work with when designing the perfect cake for our wedding. She was patient in explaining all the different ingredients and was flexible in our vision of the final product (we had a different cake for each of the 3 tiers) - and most of all, we had lots of fun with the tasting. Our guests commented on how beautiful and delicious the cake was, a first that we've seen for wedding cakes!

  • Ladybird is awesome!! We looked everywhere for a bakery that would make the simple yet super delicious cake that we wanted, and Ladybird fit the bill perfectly :) We wanted a very simple buttercream cake with fresh flowers and Melanie at Ladybird worked with us to make that a reality. The cake we had at our tasting was sooo good and the cake was one of the most reasonably priced cakes we found anywhere! We also chose to get some extra goodies for our dessert table, mini cupcakes and bars and things, and everything was delivered to the venue in Manhattan safely and on time! Our florist provided the flowers and the cake looked exactly as I'd imagined, and tasted glorious - all of our guests thought so too! The strawberry blossom, almond princess and brooklyn blackout were our three flavors, and they were all SO GOOD!! Thank you Melanie and Ladybird, you guys are the best!!

  • Melanie and the team at Ladybird were a dream to work with and did a beautiful job. I have lived down the street from the bakery for over fifteen years and have always loved their cakes. Melanie was extremely accommodating about arranging a tasting of all their different cakes, frostings, and fillings and working with the two of us to figure out what would make the most sense for our taste and budget. She was super chill and open at every stage of the process and when I sent her photos of flowers for inspiration, created a gorgeous design that turned out almost too beautiful to eat...but was too delicious not to devour! She delivered the cake with no complications and our guests raved about how tasty it was. A wonderful experience all around.

  • The cake was so good! All of the guests raved about it. We did a small tiered cake and a larger sheet cake for serving. They did the exact decorations that we requested (and ALL in buttercream).

  • We have been getting our cakes from Ladybird for years so when it came time for the wedding cake it was the obvious choice. If you are looking for fondant, look elsewhere. They are traditionalists here that believe you should be able to eat the entire cake! They did a beautiful job with buttercream flowers and everyone, EVERYONE, said it was the best wedding cake they've ever tasted!!! The owner is the nicest woman you will ever meet and she really puts love into every cake. Don't freak out if she doesn't respond immediately...they are really busy for a small shop, and when it comes time for your cake to be the most important thing on their mind, it will be :)
