  • The cake looked beautiful and tasted amazing! Their customer service was outstanding and we felt really special throughout the entire process from tasting to the wedding day. Pricing was pretty competitive too!

  • I LOVE cupcakes. So it only made sense to have a cupcake tower instead of a classic cake for our wedding. Our wedding venue actually included a cake or cupcakes in the wedding package- but come the tasting, all of us there were in agreement that the house made ones were pretty awful! Luckily we still had about 2 months until our wedding so after a bit of back and forth trying to find the correct Magnolia bakery (only some of them handle wedding orders) and manager to speak with (Shenequa helped us out and she was amazing), we placed our Magnolia cupcake order. We were able to choose the flavors we wanted, customize the icing colors and decorations to match our theme, and they were even able to include some gluten-free cupcakes for our gluten free guests! Although I did not personally receive the order day-of, our venue did, everything appeared to arrive on time and in good condition. New Yorkers know and love Magnolia Bakery (full disclosure: especially me) so you really can't go wrong... Read more

  • All of our guests are still talking about how terrific our cake was! Magnolia Bakery was our first - and only! - stop for cake tastings about 8 months before our wedding. Everything from the presentation at our tasting to the attention to detail for creating each tier of our cake was amazing. Everything showed up on time and perfectly, and working with Shenequa + her team was a breeze! Definitely the best cakes in NYC!

  • 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 left... Read more

  • 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.

  • Our experience with Magnolia Bakery was excellent. The entire staff was extremely professional and responsive throughout the whole process- from the cake tasting to the time of delivery. At the tasting, we had the pleasure of working with Ms. Nicole Knox who was very patient and did a great job of putting us at ease and helping us select our wedding cake. Perhaps the only thing surpassing Magnolia Bakery’s high level of service was the quality of the cake itself (which was incredibly rich and flavorful). It was executed perfectly, held up well over the course of the evening, and was a resounding hit with all our guests. We will return to Magnolia Bakery in the future and recommend them without hesitation for anyone’s special day!

  • Our vendor partnered with Magnolia Bakery so we didn't technically have a choice about where the cake was from, but honestly I probably would have chosen them anyway. We've loved their cupcakes and baked goods for a long time and that quality extends to the custom cakes. Nicole was our point person and she was a pleasure to work with, always so bubbly and positive. We had a blast with her at our cake tasting! The cakes themselves were all super tasty and delicious, and the decorations were so charming! We ended up going with a 3 tiered lemon cake with raspberry filling and white chocolate icing and it was perfect for our spring brunch wedding. I will say that because they are a national brand the individual stores aren't allowed to alter any of the recipes for quality control reasons. That includes the color of the various components including some of the icings (our white chocolate icing came in one color only but I think you can dye the buttercreams), so if you have dreams of a...

  • 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 as... Read more
