avor. We heard about how good the cake was from several of our guests. We selected a simple white buttercream, as our florist was adding flowers and fruit to decorate the cake, but even the simple design was professional and flawless. The team was so easy to communicate with, book, and finish all the details with. We had friends kindly pick up the cake, and they made the process so easy. Take it from us, you do not need to order enough servings for your entire wedding party -- we had a ton leftover -- and I was not disappointed to get to take home extra delicious cake.

r expert advice, there’s no doubt that Buttercream knows what they’re doing. But more importantly, their cake is good. The icing is sweet but not too sweet, their flavors are refined and the cake itself is perfect. We didn’t even bother with saving the top of the cake for our first anniversary – just dove right into the leftovers :)

Buttercream bakeshop is amazing!!! We had such a hard time picking our flavors during the tasting because they were all so yummy. We ended up going with two flavors, since we had a larger guest count - one was almond cake, blueberry jam, and ...
cream cheese frosting, and the other was vanilla cake, passionfruit curd, and coconut milk frosting. They were both phenomenal and received rave reviews from our guests! Our only regret was that we cut the cake right before the dance floor opened up and we were having such a fun time dancing that not everyone had a chance to eat their piece! But would 10/10 recommend Buttercream Bakeshop for any special (or ordinary) occasions where you want tasty cake & a beautiful presentation! The staff are super friendly, very responsive and creative, and were a pleasure to work with from start to finish!

choose one with a different flavor (we had mocha and vanilla, and the icy had gold flecks. A lovely upscale touch!). These are unlike anything I've had from anywhere else - just absolute perfection. Having something fancy and unexpected like this really made our unconventional wedding feel a little more special. I even had a friend sneak several into my car so I would be sure to have a few as we drove away (because you can be sure that there were no leftovers!) Thank you Buttercream!

I live in DC, so I’ve been aware of the magic of Buttercream for years now. I originally hired another baker to make my cake and other goodies (I was originally doing a dessert bar) - the baker completely flakes and left me with a bad feeling...
, so I turned to Buttercream. They were a DREAM to work with. I waffled a bit on if I wanted a dessert bar or cake, and they never told me how annoying I was (I’m sure it was VERY annoying). I ended up going with a small two tier cake and their sheet cake for guests. It was a great decision- guests RAVED about the cake (carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream). It also was gorgeous and to be honest, i was pleasantly surprised at how big my two tier cutting cake was! We didn’t eat it all at the wedding, and due to the messages we kept getting about the cake, had a party the weekend after the wedding so we could serve the rest of it!
Buttercream’s prices are very competitive. You 100% get your money’s worth from them! My only word of caution is that when we did our cake tasting, we did it to take home. They made us cupcakes and they were horribly dry. Luckily, I had had Buttercream several times and knew this was a fluke. So, if this is your experience with tasting, just know your cake will be perfect!

ere times that I would go 2 weeks waiting for a response. I had to call the shop just to get someone to respond to my email. When they would respond I was told "we were waiting for you to send us the colors" or something along those lines although I was never asked for them. I contacted the shop to cancel my contract due to the lack of customer service. I told them if they were in a busy season I would gladly wait until the following month to sit down with someone but I just wanted to know if I was e-mailing the right place or doing something wrong on my end. The manager apologized and insisted he meet with us personally. When we arrived they acted shocked to see us as if they had forgotten our appointment, gave us someone else's cake tasting, then rushed us out AFTER making us waiting almost 45 minutes to be seen again after receiving the wrong tasting. To top it off, they charged my card twice for the cake tasting. The manager promised to have an updated cake proposal to us by the end of the day or the following morning at the latest. That was a month ago and we have not heard a single thing. We are trying to give them over $1,000 but feel like we have to badger them just to receive a contract. The fact that they are this forgetful and unprofessional worries me that they will forget our wedding day entirely. We decided to go to Charm City Cakes instead and they were beyond professional, sketched our cake out perfectly in seconds and had the contract to us within 3 minutes of leaving. Charm City was also more affordable and does not charge sales tax. Definitely check out Buttercream for immediate pastries but I would pass on important events. I read reviews on Yelp from people trying to design their wedding cake and they had similar experiences. I had anticipated the experience of designing our wedding cake to be one of the more enjoyable aspects of wedding planning and it was by far the worst part with Buttercream.

vice on the serving amount! I knew I did not want a cake to add up to exactly the number guest attending because there are a lot of guest that do not even eat cake. So we came up with a solution that made both the bride and the groom happy! We had three wedding cakes, one large, three tier cake and two small cakes! When we went for the tasting I knew it was going to be difficult because the groom is a little picky with cakes. I tried their carrot cake first and I almost died! It was so delicious but of course the groom does not like carrot cake so we to compromised and we ordered the two small carrot cakes and the main cake was a Almond cake, with raspberry filing and buttercream frosting. The cake was absolutely delicious and beyond beautiful, thank you Tiffiany our guest were gushing on how delicious and gorgeous the cakes were!
