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.

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!

Our cake was so amazing! We ordered a three layered cake with each layer a different flavor. My family are such chocolate lovers we asked if they could make the chocolate richer and they were happy to. They were so nice and easy to work with. The cake looked beautiful and tasted...

We worked with Buttercream's Excelsior location. We had a great time at our tasting and they were so easy to work with. We had a small one tier cake and then cupcakes.

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.

We went with Buttercream since they were the preferred bakery of our vendor and would waive the cake cutting fee if we used them. I am glad we did not have to look anywhere else.

We recently hired Buttercream for our wedding on 11/5/16. It was a great choice as their cake is DELICIOUS! You are able to go in beforehand and try an assortment of their best flavors, or choose from a list as well. We had a hard time choosing as they are all so good! I will...

For the first couple weeks after the wedding my husband and I kept turning to each other and saying "wait, why didn't we eat more of our cake?" it was that good. We got a 3 tiered traditional wedding cake and it was amazing. Not only was it beautiful and exactly what I wanted my... Read More wedding cake to look like it was also absolutely delicious.

AMAZING! We chose to have four smaller cakes in different flavors. Buttercream accommodated our request and our guests ave rave reviews. We had exactly two slices of cake left at the end of the day, and who ever has that happen? You can't go wrong with any of their cakes.

Avoid this place! Terrible service, poor quality product, and expensive to boot! My cake was lopsided...sent them photos both via email and USPS and never even got a response. They might have been good once upon a time, but no more. Look elsewhere...or be warned!

Amazing cake/cupcakes! Everyone at the wedding was ranting how delicious the cake/cupcakes were. The tasting went well, but my only concern is they sent someone that didn't know how to set everything up. I spoke with the wedding lady on the phone and she said if we brought...
