Welcome to Buttercup
New York City's premier Bake Shop

Only the finest, natural ingredients
go into our sweets!


Buttercup has been spreading smiles and satisfying sweet tooths since we opened our doors in 1999. With over 14 years of sweet success, Buttercup continues to build a loyal following with our most recent pastry chef, Kareem Elgohary, who, since 2014, has dramatically increased our selection of puddings, custom cakes, bars, cookies, and other fresh and exciting confections.

With chef Elgohary, Buttercup has revitalized an already winning recipe that's charming the hearts and tastes of New Yorkers. It's all about how we do it. Our philosophy of wholesome ingredients—organic butter, the finest local products—and belief in traditional baking techniques (with our own twists)—like working by hand—are what gives our baked goods fresh and dynamic flavors.

We are committed to baking the best gourmet cupcakes and finest sweet goods in the world. With this in mind, we love dazzling New York foodies. Did you know that Buttercup is the sister entity of Buttercup Bake Shop? It is, and as such, we have had the pleasure of serving serious foodies like Martha Stewart, Al Roker and Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, to name a few.

Buttercup has claimed it's fame too, having been featured on The Today Show, MTV, FOX, CNN, as well as in the romance novel A Match Made on Madison by Dee Davis. Besides putting smiles on our clients with our signature cupcakes, we also bake an amazing array of bars, famous puddings, cookies, and macaroons. Try something unique and fresh; come in and ask for a free sample of any of our newest puddings!
