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.

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.

Super easy process working with Buttercream and everything went without a hitch on the wedding day. We received many compliments on how delicious the cake was. We went with strawberry a la ritz and cookies and cream - perfect for summer. Highly recommend!

Buttercream did an amazing job for our wedding this past weekend!

We loved our cake from Buttercream! I have heard from so many people that they it tasted incredible! We were able to modify one of their current designs and it turned out beautifully. They're a preferred vendor for our reception venue and I can see why. You get both the great... Read More taste and design for much less than other cake places we priced out. Their big thing is that they don't do fondant because of how terribly it tastes, and I can say that we didn't miss anything in the design without fondant.

We ordered cupcakes for our wedding, and they were good. I was mostly disappointed that Buttercream is so inflexible. After we booked with them, we had a cupcake at a bakery in another state and wanted to replicate it for our wedding (it was simple, crushed oreos in white cake... Read More batter and crushed oreos in vanilla frosting). Buttercream was unable--or unwilling--to alter their cupcakes at all. It is very what-you-see-is-what-you-get. I understand they have a high volume of customers, and it is easier for them to stick with a few simple batters...but for the cost, you'd think they could work with you to specialize the cake for your wedding. I ended up regretting that we did not order cupcakes from A Cupcake Social instead.

They are the best! I could have eaten a whole cake - but I believe that's frowned upon when you're the bride...

Disclaimer: the review below depicts the events from our perspective.  The cake is good, but the customer service we have received so far has been disappointing.  We scheduled a cake tasting on 7/9/17.  We met with Greg to choose cake flavors and discuss the design.  Greg... Read More asked us to send pictures so he could share them with Marisa.  Greg said we should expect a response at the end of the week. As of 7/24, we were still waiting for a reply from Burtercream Bakery, so my fiance sent an email requesting an update.  Marisa sent a response explaining that they could not achieve the look we wanted.  Instead of offering alternative design suggestions, Marisa apologized and provided a list of other bakeries to try.   My fiance then sent a follow up email asking what could be done.  David offered an option that included 1 element of the requested design, but did not address the others.  I responded with an email asking which elements from the initial concept could be used.  David replied saying that our concept would not work since they don't cut cakes, or use dyes/fondant.  (Note: Cutting the cake was suggested by Burtercream Bakery).  We understand their position on dyes/fondant and asked for alternatives that would allow us to create a whimsical wedding cake.  Thus far, we know about what Burtercream Bakery can't do, and but not much about what can be done. When we asked for clarification, David responded by asking us to call him. My fiance made the call and David advised that he wanted to review our photos to see what could be done.  He asked us to re-send the pictures since because he could not find the copies we already sent.  Now, we are supposed to call him on 7/30 to discuss.   Based on the lackluster service level we have experienced so far, we do not feel like Burtercream Bakery actually wants our business. I hope to have a positive update after our meeting on Sunday. Update 7/28: Burtercream Bakery saw the Facebook review and reached out to us to discuss.  They feel the review is unfair given the work they have done internally on our wedding cake.  David asked us to meet with him at the Minnetonka location.  Replied to David's email that the review reflects our perception so far, and that we only know about their work internally if they share this with us 7/28: Second Update: Buttercream bakery contacted us to advise that they are no longer willing to work with on a wedding cake, and have shared this information with our wedding reception vendor.  David stated this decision was a result of the negative review I posted

When we asked our friends about where to go for our wedding cake most said Buttercream. We were so excited to go there based on the feedback. What a disappointment! The person who did our tasting at the St. Paul location clearly has been doing this too long and doesn't think... Read More customer service matters. She acted like she already had our business. We also were not impressed with the taste of the cake which is even more important. It was nothing special. We were so disappointed and can't understand all of the rave reviews. In talking with several of our friends who had made the recommendation we learned that most did not do cake tasting anywhere else and just went on recommendation. Try at least 2 or 3 places to know for sure and don't settle for a place just because it is popular. We ended up at La Patisserie in St. Paul and could not be more happy. The owner could not have been more welcoming or gracious. She only uses real ingredients, including butter, and no mixes. The cake was so flavorful and she is all about making your day special. After our Buttercream experience, going to La Patisserie was a breath of fresh air.

The best cake service in Minneapolis, no question. Their cakes are so incredibly delicious. They got everything perfectly right with our cake flavors, the floral design on the cake, the stand, the timing, etc. Perfect vendor for a wedding cake.

The cake was amazing and the fact that we were able to pick two flavors was great. The tasting was convenient but small add-ons were expensive.
