Our style is inviting, approachable, and elegant, like the remarkable state that we call home.
We love working with couples to achieve a unique vision for their wedding dessert table. From large tiered wedding cakes, to a variety of different mini desserts, your imagination is the limit.
We bring years of experience in the wedding industry and a personalized approach to the planning process, offering completely customizable menus that work with couples’ taste preferences, dietary restrictions, desired aesthetics, and budgets.
Favorite Moment During a Wedding: As a wedding vendor, my favorite moment is when I get to put the finishing touches on the dessert table and stand back and take in the overall aesthetic. It’s the best! As a wedding guest, obviously my favorite part is the cake cutting!
Favorite Vermont Activity: Hit up a local maple creemee stand after a successful wedding delivery.

Dreamy Dessert Display!
Beatrix at Blue House Bakeshop was absolutely incredible to work with for our wedding! She worked with us to come up with custom flavors and options and hosted a tasting for us before our event. She was extremely professional and prompt with communications. She delivered our desserts to our venue and created the most beautiful display for our reception. Our wedding cake was absolutely gorgeous and our guests were raving about how delicious all of the desserts were. We would definitely recommend Blue House Bakeshop for your wedding or special event!
Delicious, Gorgeous, No Leftovers!
We hired Beatrix & Blue House Bakeshop for our wedding in June of 2023 and had the absolute BEST experience. If you’re looking for a professional, flexible, talented baker for your next special event — look no further. Beatrix not only made our wedding-cake dreams come true, but she also baked a variety of treats (cookies, cupcakes, brownies, fruit-tarts, etc.), in a variety of flavors (everything was so good we had a hard time deciding what to pick). She even provided gluten-free options for each! Everything was so delicious that even the gluten-snobs were eating the gluten-free treats to get a taste. By the end of our wedding the dessert table was picked dry, and (to our dismay) there were no leftovers to take home! Hire Blue House Bakeshop immediately. (Photos by Julia Luckett Photography).
Work of art
Beatrix was wonderful to work with! The cake tasted amazing and looked unbelievable. Our guests couldn’t believe how detailed the cake was (a view from the top of Mt Philo) – it was a work of art! The lemon poppyseed flavor was a hit and perfect for a summer wedding.
Our cake was completely perfect. It was both stunning and so delicious! It was one of my favorite parts of my wedding seeing my cake. We went with the coconut almond and maple walnut, both were amazing, but the coconut almond stole the show! The pipped artwork on the cake was beautiful, exactly what I had hoped for.
Perfect Dessert Bar Options!
We are so glad that we were able to have Bluehouse Bakeshop contribute to both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception! We loved everything we sampled and Beatrix was great in helping us solidify our options for a dessert bar. Our guests were raving about each of the desserts (mini fruit tarts, chocolate truffles, lemon vanilla cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, and brown butter cookies) and not a single item was left by the end of the night – we had guests finding ways to take the desserts home with them to keep any from going to waste. The next time we are in need of a celebratory dessert, we will be sure to work with Beatrix!
Wonderful to work with for amazing sweets!
Beatrix went above an beyond to make sure we had exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. The cupcakes and cake were so good there was nothing left! The cake design was perfect and the communication along the way was spot on!
Best Cake EVER
While we might have been the stars of the show at our wedding, our cake was a close second. Multiple guests went out of their way to let us know that they don’t usually like wedding cake but that ours was EXCEPTIONAL! Two weeks later (it has taken all of our self control for it to last in our fridge this long) and it is still one of the best cakes we have ever had. Everything we sampled from Blue House Bake Shop was fantastic, but the maple butter cream frosting is out of this world and will have you and your guests taking seconds, thirds and to-go containers. Bea was responsive, offered insight when we were indecisive on flavor/sizing and provided delivery for increased ease! We have no doubt that Bea was the best choice for our wedding cake!
Incredible Desserts and Service!
Beatrix made our desserts for our wedding a few weekends ago and we were blown away! From our first tasting in the fall we fell in love with so many different desserts so knew we had to have them all at our wedding. We also wanted a small personal cake and cake for my 30th birthday the next day. We were having a slightly harry potter themed celebration and let Beatrix know. She knocked it out of the park, not only were the cakes beautiful but everyone kept coming up to us to say how delicious everything was! My husband and a lot of his family are gluten free so she was able to make everything gluten free for us and it was incredible. We also ended up moving our wedding date up a few months and she was so easy to work with and flexible with the changes. Highly highly recommend booking Blue House for any of your dessert needs!! We will be back for our next event.
Best Person and Dessert Ever!
Beatrix was great to work with from the beginning. We wanted a smaller cake with a big dessert display and she was able to accommodate, to perfection! She provided suggestions for which items would be good for the dessert bar and accommodated our requests for certain types of desserts, on-brand for our Vermont wedding (lots of maple!). She also worked across-vendors – we wanted flowers on the cake so she coordinated with our florist seamlessly to deliver. Highly recommended!
Great choice for our intimate wedding!
Beatrix was great to work with! After our tasting we decided on a small semi-naked two tiered cake (cider cake + brown butter vanilla buttercream and vanilla cake + raspberry filling), some double chocolate cupcakes, and as favors we got the homemade Oreos to leave in our guests room. Everyone loved it!
