If you want delicious cake at your wedding. Look no more.
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!!!Sent on 10/15/2019

Ladybird Bakery did a wonderful job making the desserts for our wedding. We did not want a typical layer wedding cake. Instead, we went with the Brooklyn Blackout sheet cake, apple tarts, and lemon bars.Sent on 01/11/2020
We did a tasting to decide what flavors to go with for the sheet cake. Everything was delicious and it was a hard time deciding what flavor to go with (although no decision would have been a bad one). My now-husband had heard of Ladybird Bakery from his colleague who once brought the Brooklyn Blackout cake to their office. That is what we ended up choosing because it was just mind-blowingly delicious.
Melanie was easy to work with for our tasting and wedding day. After placing our order, the process was seamless to coordinate payment, delivery, and drop off with instructions to the venue on if/when to refrigerate and cut.
As it turns out, I didn’t even eat dessert on the wedding night, but our guests raved about how wonderful it all tasted!

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.Sent on 11/13/2019
