Maddiebird Bakery

You could come to this adorable Edgewater bakery just for the Metropolis coffee and the delicious, moist cupcakes (and you should—they're fantastic). But don't overlook the shop's most impressive offering: its custom-decorated cakes. Owner Michele McAtee is a genius at crafting sugar into works of art; some of her remarkable creations include cupcakes shaped to look like a turntable and a cake topped with an evil clown vomiting rainbow-colored sprinkles.

Not only are the cupcakes amazing but they open their doors to story time for kids! They help make our neighborhood a community!

Michelle's creations are simply brilliant and their flavor is just like homemade (if your homemade happened to come out perfect every time.) Better even than that place on Broadway in Lincoln Park. Make the time to stop in--your taste buds will love you for it.

Unique and creative bake shop that has such a sharp attention to detail without sacrificing flavor. Can we walk about the buttercream piping? Flawless and also excellent fondant work. Great people too!

She has the best cupcakes in the city, and is an incredibly artistic bakery designer!

Love the Maddiebird Bakery! True artist playing with the most delicious flavors!

Not only are the cupcakes delicious, the Maddiebird family go out of their way to make you feel welcomed, loved, and appreciated.

The owners are lovely people and are responsible neighbors. The yummies are just that-yummy and creative. Win-Win

amazing cupcakes and cakes. owners treat customers with the utmost respect. very involved in the neighborhood

Small business, woman owned. Such a cute store. Friendly owner. Great for amazing custom cakes. Like really cool custom artwork. And those cupcakes are so, so delicious.

The best looking and best tasting cupcakes in the city, right in my neighborhood!

The creative imagination for each and every cake or cupcake is thoroughly and thoughtfully used....making each item a "work of art".

Hands down the best tasting cupcake I have ever had. AND SO AMAZINGLY CUTE!

A gem in our community. Wonderfully delicious goodies from wonderfully generous and mindful people!

Michelle is an Artist, Visionary Pastry Chef, Feeder of hearts, bellies and souls. Neighborhood Gem.

The most delightful cupcakes! They are super moist and delicious! Her cakes are pieces of art too!

Best cupcakes in the city, and her cakes are adorable! Also, she does story time on Wednesday for kiddos!

Delicious cupcakes. Cute and creative cake designs. Friendly owners and staff.

Maddiebird is simply fantastic! They make excellent cupcakes (including gluten free) if you just stop in and make tremendous, creative cakes (also including gluten free). If you plan ahead, they will make you a stunning, whimsical, and delicious cake. And, the staff is delightful!

Cupcakes are amazing! They have Story time for the kids too which is a great way to connect with the community. They really try to be a great neighbor!

Maddiebird's creations are not only beautiful and creative, they are delicious!! I especially appreciate the variety of vegan options, which are also super yummy. My daughter is vegan and I'm not always impressed with the selections at other bakeries. But, EVERYTHING I've tried at Maddiebird Bakery has been fantastic! Plus, the people who work there are absolutely lovely. Highly recommend!!

Not only are the cupcakes/cakes artistically AMAZING, they taste even better than they look! I served cupcakes at a baby shower, and once people started eating them they literally stopped the conversation. So good!!

Michele is SO creative and always creates something one notch above amazing!

Maddiebird made an amazing cake for my daughter's birthday! They were patient with this first time mama, explained everything thoroughly. The end result was a pink dinosaur red velvet cake to die for!

Not only are Maddiebird's cupcakes delicious, Michelle and her staff are able to create beautiful works of art out of fondant that are almost too beautiful to eat. Maddiebird is our go to for any occasion. Highly recommend!

Michele and her team creates sine of the most imaginative cakes and cupcakes I've ever seen. They are works of art from a true artist - and they're delicious. On top of that, she's the nicest person ever!

Maddiebird is a woman-owned business in Edgewater. Michele McAtee, the founder and chief inspiration behind Maddiebird, creates uniquely gorgeous and delicious cupcakes and cakes for any occasion. Visit Maddiebird once, and you'll definitely become a repeat customer!

The best cupcakes in Edgewater!
And they have a sweet little story time on Wednesdays. I love Michelle and her wonderful little store.

Not only delicious creations but some of the most beautiful, artistically designed decorations I've ever seen!

Love this bakery!!! Most delicious cupcakes and many unique flavors! Fabulous decorations on the cakes and cupcakes!

Maddiebird has the best cupcakes - not only is the frosting yummy, but the cake is out of this world. (oh yeah, the service is super awesome too)

Little hidden gem on Devon with a great selection of original cupcakes! Love this place!

I adore Maddiebirds Bakery, I live in the Gold coast, and I will use any excuse to take the "L" to Edgewater, to spoil myself with there delicious cupcakes and their fun cake designs are the cutest!! I am looking forward to buying my OWN birthday cake from them this year! Thanks for delicious treats Maddiebird!💛💛❤😊

There is little my children (or husband. Or me!) enjoy more than an impromptu visit to Maddiebird. Their cupcakes are the best I've ever had. And not only that, but Michele and Aaron are just simply stand-up human beings. They are kind and welcoming and caring; the type of people who will give you a candle and lighter, turn down the music, and sing along to Happy Birthday to You to celebrate your son's 8th birthday. So hurry. Drop what you're doing, and head over there. You'll be happy you did. Promise.

Maddiebird is awesome for my cupcake cravings (though hard on my waistline). Michelle and Aaron are delightful and make a trip in so very fun. We've ordered birthday cakes and our wedding cake as well and the whole experience was perfect. Maddiebird is definitely a neighborhood gem!

Superb product with an artistic flair, as well. Worth a visit, if you haven't done so already.

Michele an Aaron at Maddiebird Bakery have created a wonderful business there! I've never seen sugar art done with such originality as hers and the fact that their cakes are also DELICIOUS makes this my favorite "go to" for special occasion treats. SO much creativity and imagination from two of the nicest business owners in town. OH! They also have vegan offerings there as well, which makes me love them even more!
