About Us


Founded by Amanda Saab in 2017,  butter bear shop was created with the intention of sharing gourmet treats with the world, while also helping to care for others with our #butterbearcares program. 

butter bear shop creates gourmet cookies, cheesecakes, cakes, cinnamon rolls and a variety of Lithuanian breads, including Lithuanian Rye Sourdough. 

Amanda has enjoyed baking with her mom since she was a child. At the fourth grade book fair, Amanda purchased a recipe book and learned how to make New York Style Cheesecake on her own. Since then, she has been baking cheesecakes for her family. Amanda also baked celebration cakes and all the cookies for her family gatherings. In 2015, Amanda's love for food led her to compete on MasterChef with Gordon Ramsay! To learn more about Amanda and to try some of her recipes, visit amandasplate.com

At butter bear shop our philosophy is to offer the best desserts and breads that are easily accessible via our online stop and bake shop in Livonia, MI. We use the highest quality ingredients, because good things into the oven, mean great things out of the oven!
