    what kind of cake are you looking for? buttercup bakeshop has reasonable prices on cakes.


    1. A million of these exist in Manhattan. I've tried and liked Mary's Off Jane and Billy's Bakery.
      Amy's gets good reviews, but I haven't been.

        Mary's Off Jane closed some time ago. Amy's cakes are delicious but I don't know how expensive they are.

          This post is from 7 months ago, so...

      2. Casa Cupcake or Cupcake Café in Hell's Kitchen - though I never remember which one has the baked goods and which just serves coffee.

          It's the same place now. Cupcake Cafe closed and moved into the Casa space.

        2. Crumbs Bake Shop at 321 Amsterdam Avenue has impressive cupcakes that are HUGE and a good value for the quality. The "fancy" cupcakes are a little disappointing, but the simple cupcakes with assorted buttercreams are delicious. The vanilla cake with raspberry butter cream is my personal favorite. I am a pastry cook and worked making cakes for 4 years, and so far these are the best cupcakes I've found in Manhattan.

          1. Would you happen to know what is the price range of their cakes?
