Looking for an amazing bakery in Brooklyn? Check out LADYBIRD BAKERY in Park Slope!

For the past two weeks, I have been on vacation in Switzerland, Virginia and New York to attend 2 weddings (more to come on the events soon) and spend some time with friends and family. During my trips I am always on the lookout for new inspiration and last Thursday I found some. While walking around Park Slope in Brooklyn with my mother, someone we met suggested that we check out Ladybird Bakery, which used to be known as Two Little Red Hens - a bakery that was opened in 1992. The spectacular Ladybird Bakery is owned by Marie Louise Clemens, one of the original owners of Two Little Red Hens. Since we were in the mood for some sweets we headed to the bakery and picked up a chocolate mousse tart with whipped cream sprinkled with chocolate shavings, a red velvet cupcake and one of their famed Brooklyn Blackout cupcakes. The moment my fingers touched the red velvet cake, I knew I was in for a special treat. The cake was incredibly moist and actually had a soft velvet-like texture while the cream just melted in my mouth – I couldn’t help but smile when eating this wonderful cupcake. The chocolate mousse tart was the perfect blend of creamy rich chocolate and fluffy light, but not too light, whipped cream. Last, but absolutely not least, the Brooklyn Blackout cupcake was amazing. My mother and grandmother sat there reminiscing of how it tasted just like the blackout cake from the beloved Ebinger Baking Company, a bakery in Brooklyn that was a favorite of older generations of Brooklynites and was founded in 1898.

Not only does Ladybird have cupcakes and pies to die for but they design and create wedding cakes with a full list of scrumptious flavors of cakes and fillings as well as a list of their specialty cakes (Brooklyn Blackout included!). So if you are looking for a cake that your guests will definitely eat and love every bit of (while wondering if they can ask for more) definitely give Ladybird Bakery a call or just stop by – Ladybird is located in the south Slope on 8th Avenue between 11th and 12th streets (You can take the F train straight there).
