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.

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.

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.

We just got married on March 2, 2018 and I am not usually a cake person, but Oh. My. Gosh. My wedding cake from Buttercream was unbelievably amazing! We had a beautiful, simply decorated four-tier cake in two flavors. They took care of the delivery and set up and they even did... Read More flower placement with the fresh flowers from the florist! I love that they take pride in every aspect of their cakes and use only high-grade ingredients. Our guests raved about the cake - many people even went back for seconds so they could try a piece of each. The serving sizes were very generous! I am so excited to recommend them and I can't wait to get another cake from here! Keep up the great (and tasty!) work, Buttercream!!!

We used Buttercream's services for our wedding because they were included with our reception venue. However, given a choice we likely would have selected a different vendor. We thought cake tasting would be a highlight of wedding planning but we were incorrect. My parents met us... Read More at the tasting in the St. Paul location and neither of us felt welcome when we arrived. Both of us got the impression that they were trying to get us to leave until we reminded them we had a scheduled appointment. I called ahead twice to make sure that they could accommodate a peanut allergy and was told that this may limit the types of cake we tried but that they did have a peanut free option. When we arrived they had prepared a tasting that was not peanut free. They were able to change to a peanut free tasting but we were treated as an inconvenience. We were also disappointed to find out that despite their name the frostings are more of whipped and cream cheese frosting than a true buttercream frosting. While the cake was included with our venue we were responsible for any costs of decorating the cake and cake stands used. On the day of the wedding the cake was actually better than the cake we tried at the tasting which was a nice surprise. Overall the cake turned out to be good in the end but given Buttercream's reputation in the Twin Cities the whole experience was not up to our expectations.

We loved the cakes and Buttercream was very easy to work with, very professional, and very delicious.

Buttercream was the first and only bakery we met with for our wedding cake and cupcakes. The moment we met with David at our tasting, we knew we were in good hands.

this is for the Stillwater Location- to start off, the cakes were wonderful. They tasted wonderful and looked beautiful. We had 11 6 inch cakes and used them for our centerpieces. Each cake was a different flavor and each cake was decorated differently. Like I said, the cakes... Read More looked beautiful and tasted wonderful. The low scoring was the customer service. The communication wasn't good at all. There were lots of little things with lack of communication but the biggest thing was we asked if they have 11 serving utensils that we could use/rent, they said yes, they had 11 we could use. We also told them to deliver the cakes at 3. The cakes were delivered before 2, we didn't have the table numbers up yet with the flavor of cake so the cakes were placed at tables and we had to match them up and move from table to table. Then, they only brought one serving utensil. When we called them they said they only had one. We then had to run an hour before the wedding to find 10 serving utensils. I was very disappointed with the customer service of this place. I would not use them again. But the cake did taste good.

This vendor was amazing! I actually did not even hire this vendor for my wedding cake (only because I did not like the gaps between the tiers), but looking back- I should have!

You can't go wrong with this industry faithful! We used the Minnetonka location for our wedding cake and gluten free cupcakes and were extremely pleased.
