We had a great experience with Buttercream! Our tasting experience was a lot of fun. Our host was hilarious and kept us laughing throughout the hour. We liked them so much that we had them do our Groomsman cake too. They did a wonderful 2 tier cake with all of my husband's... Read More favorite sports teams on it. Definitely go them.

It took me awhile to find a place that did tiered cheesecakes, but I'm so glad I did. They worked with me to make it look beautiful to every detail I wanted. Every person was raving about how delicious the cheesecake was, and wanted to know their contact information.

Delicious Wedding Cake

Right from the start, Buttercream set itself apart from other bakeries we tried in the search for our wedding cake. Not only were their cakes delicious, but they allowed my husband and me to take a tasting platter home so we could share them with our parents (who were unable to... Read More make it to the initial tasting). The people at Buttercream were also very willing and excited to make a design based off of our invitations. We were also able to mix the flavors of cake and frosting as we liked. The end result was a beautiful, delicious cake that all of our guests enjoyed. As an added bonus, instead of having to keep the top tier in your freezer for a year, they offer a complimentary cake at your first anniversary so it will taste just as it did on the wedding day. I would definitely recommend this bakery.

Buttercream made a gorgeous cake for our wedding! It was delicious and they did a fantastic job delivering the cake and placing the flowers from our florist on it. The cake tasted super yummy and not too sweet, which is why I chose them! Thank you Buttercream!

YUM! The cakes were delicious! We had 6-inch centerpiece cakes at each of our tables and Buttercream accommodated our needs and we could even pick different flavors! The guests had a great time cutting their own cake, sharing with other tables, and "digging in." Seriously the... Read More best cake I think I have ever had :)

We ordered cupcakes, and they were delicious! I was however a little disappointed as we had them on a cupcake tree and none of the cupcakes were labeled. Our guests had no idea which cupcake was which and we had four flavors.

Buttercream was easy to work with. scheduling the tasting was easy. The cake was delicious and delivered on time with no worries about it. They know what they are doing. I thought it was silly that after spending an hour meeting with them and designing and reserving our cake,... Read More that they sent a completely generic email about how nice it was to meet us, but then: "If you haven't reserved your cake with us yet make sure to call us with your deposit to save your date! If you have reserved with us, we will be in touch to review your order and finalize the guest count 2 weeks prior to your wedding date." I'm spending a lot of money on a cake in your bakery, can't you personalize a little more? Even just taking out the option of "if you haven't reserved with us" for people who obviously have. Otherwise, Buttercream did a great job! The cake was awesome!

Our wedding cake was perfect! The three-tiered cake looked just like the model we had seen when we had our tasting. We got nothing but compliments from our guests! We had a few pieces left over that we were able to take home (which was awesome). My husband has frozen those... Read More pieces and unfrozen them throughout the last few weeks and the pieces still taste fresh :) When you go in for your tasting, the staff are very honest with you which is wonderful. By being so honest with us, we changed our vision of having cupcakes to having a three-tiered cake and couldn't have been more happy :)

We absolutely loved using Buttercream for our wedding cake and cupcakes! Our taste testing experience was perfect, and the individual who helped us was honest and professional.

We even had to change our order kind of last minute, and they were more than willing to help! We had Buttercream deliver the cake, cupcakes and cupcake stand the morning of the wedding, and all of the cupcakes made it in perfect condition! The delivery person set up the cupcakes in sections exactly like we wanted, and they even set up our signs for us that listed what each cupcake was. We even requested to have a few cupcakes set aside so my husband and I could have one the next day, and they gave us a little to-go case for the cupcakes and put them in the fridge at our venue for us! The cake and cupcakes were DELICIOUS, and we still get compliments on how tasty they were! They had the best and most unique flavors too, which we loved! And we even get a complimentary cake on our 1 year anniversary! Buttercream is highly recommended!

My friend's mom suggested Buttercream for us and she raved how good their cake was at a wedding she went to. Buttercream really is the best option available in the twin cities. We looked at various bakers, sampled their cakes and looked at their designs. First of all, their cake... Read More is far better than anyone else. They are not dry at all, right flavor and texture and they have the right idea not to use fondant. They sat with us on a couple of sessions to really figure out what kind of design we are looking for. We looked up on internet and sent them the ideas and when we sat with them they improvised the design to match our theme. We were doing old time classy black & white polka dots and bow-ties and things like that. They suggested what works best and what doesn't work. They delivered the cake on time and it looked great. Pictures looked great. It tasted fantastic. We think we really picked the right flavors. Also they don't do freezing the top tier for the anniversary and all that. They are just going to bake a new cake for us for our anniversary, at no extra charge. They are competitively priced (or even better than others) around the twin cities and they really live up to their reputation. Best wedding cake baker in the cities, hands down!

The cake and cupcakes tasted delicious, and looked great. We had a small cutting cake, which they used a custom pattern for that turned out very well.
