Worked with Love and Buttercream through Waterview Loft wedding venue. We picked a half chocolate cake with almond icing and half almond cake with almond icing. Guests commented on the double almond really surprising them and being more delicious. Design turned out better than I expected. Places to improve: Emails I sent had a slow response. Cake tasting was about what I thought it would be in terms of amount- though the bakery is tiny and leaves little room for the table squeezed in the corner right by the door. Made me wonder if there was any place in the back to have it instead? Felt like I was really pushing it asking to use their restroom.
Our cake was so pretty and delicious, and the whole design process was a breeze! Cake tasting is definitely every groom's favorite part!!!! :) The buttercream is slightly overwhelming, but in my opinion, it's always better to have too much and remove it, rather than not enough!
This cake is amazing! We have been coming here for about a year now and it was the first place we thought of when we went to pick a wedding cake. They make it easy for you to do a tasting by giving a " take home" option which worked awesome with our busy schedules. When the cake was delivered they put on the garnishes that I had and it looked amazing. The actual cake is the best cake I have ever had. We will be using them for a long time to come.
Love and Buttercream was great when it came to our wedding. The tasting was easy to plan, and they worked with us since we do not live the in the area. They set up a time that was convenient for us to come in, and had our selections ready to go when we arrived. The cake we had at the shop was incredible! They even accommodated our request to try an extra type of buttercream. We received a write -up of exactly what we agreed upon for the cake. Flash forward to wedding day: The cake, in my opinion, looked disastrous. We requested an ombre, which was somewhat executed, but was not what we had discussed. The finished product looked block-y and like a kid had made it. The middle tier turned out beautifully. We received many compliments on the cakes design from our guests, and it obviously did not ruin our wedding, it just was not what I was expecting to get. The taste of the cake was just okay, it seemed a little dry. Overall, it tasted like a typical 'wedding cake'. I think as Love and Buttercream continues to work events, they will improve. I would recommend, as long as you are prepared to set up follow-ups, pictures, and a very detailed design plan for your vision.
After our tasting with Love and Buttercream, we were so excited for our wedding cake! There are so many delicious options to choose from to create a cake that speaks to you and your spouse. We had a four tier cake with a separate flavor on each tier and every one was scrumptious! The staff was a pleasure to work with, the cake was delivered without any issue and was absolutely beautiful. We received so many complements on how tasty the cake was; there was not a slice a to spare. If you're looking for a cake that will not disappoint you or your guests, go with Love and Buttercream.
We are so happy with our choice to get a Love and Buttercream cake for our wedding! They were so helpful and easy to work with during the planning process even though we waited until the last minute. They put together a beautiful custom 4-tier cake with a different intricate design and ombre color for each tier. It was exactly as we envisioned and fit our theme perfectly. The flavors were incredible, delicious and fresh and we received so many compliments from our guests. It could not have been more perfect, thank you!!
The cakes were delicious, and I had several guests give rave reviews about the taste. I particularly loved our chocolate cake which had chocolate chips in it... so scrumptious! It is the fabulous taste that allows me to continue to give a four star rating, despite the second half of this review. The one complaint that I had was that I spent extra time and money to work with the consultant on a surprise groom's cake, sending an extremely detailed description, as well as photographs, of exactly what I wanted, and yet they completely missed the mark. Love and Buttercream admits that there was a miscommunication between the consultant and the designer, and they have agreed to refund my money for the groom's cake, but it's still a bummer that what should have been a pretty easy and funny cake ended up leaving my groom and our guests confused, seeing as it wasn't the correct item. :(
The staff at Love and Buttercream were great to work with! There were plenty of samples and recommendations which made it easy for us to decide. We had a small cake for the traditional cake cutting as well as mini bars and other treats for a dessert table. They helped us figure out the numbers and handled our small changes leading up to the day. They were also super helpful with keeping the Groom's cake a surprise! Everyone loved the desserts and honestly couldn't get enough. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the Metro Detroit area. :)
My husband and I purchased our cupcakes and small 1 tiered wedding cake to cut for our wedding from Love & Buttercream, and it was so amazing! The cupcakes and cake were delicious, the offer the standard flavors and unique ones (Vernors Buttercream, which we did and it was awesome!) The girls in the shop are so nice and really easy to work with. Everything was set up on time and looked exactly how I had envisioned! I would highly recommend them!!
My husband and I purchased or wedding cake from Love and Buttercream and it was so so good! They also helped us incorporate some of our own decorations on the cake to match our wedding reception decor, and it turned out perfect! The girls were so helpful and easy to work with. We have tried several desserts from the store and they are never disappointing. Would definitely recommend their services to all! -Shauna & Matt Wilusz
I visited a few places, but Love and Buttercream gave me immediate confidence. Our tasting was delicious and our guests made it a point to tell me that they enjoyed the cupcakes. Most importantly, they delivered within a tight timeframe just what I ordered. I will be visiting often for treats for home and other occasions.
I am so happy that I stumbled across Love and Buttercream in my search for a bakery to do our wedding cake. Their cakes are just to die for delicious, with the amazing buttercream flavors and cake pairing that they offer! Our wedding was just a couple of weeks ago, and I'm already craving more of the cake (our family ate our way through it pretty quickly afterward, it was so good). Leading up to our big day, Katie, Megan and the L&B team were so friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. They made the process of choosing our cake flavors so fun and easy - and they were happy to allow us two types of cake in our wedding cake that we cut and sheet cakes (one for the bride, one for the groom). We ended up with a vanilla cake with almond filling and champagne buttercream (my choice) and a cornmeal cake with raspberry jam filling and peanut butter buttercream. Both were SO yummy and a huge hit at our wedding!! For the reception, the cake was absolutely gorgeous, and the display with our flowers added in was just perfect. Thank you for your wonderful services and drool-worthy cakes, L&B team! I'd hire you again in a heartbeat :)

Delicious Cupcakes!!!Reviewed on 10/08/2014 Monica D
Love and Buttercream delivered 200 delicious cupcakes for my wedding! My original cupcake vendor went out of business and Love and Buttercream was able to save the day in a short amount of time! We did 2 take home cake tasting and everything this bakery makes is delicious! I normally don't like frosting, but I loved all of their buttercreams. We loved the berry cupcake with champagne frosting. Our guests loved the double chocolate ones, they went so quick! I may have to order some so I can enjoy one. Delivery & setup fees are very reasonable and they had a very cute square, clear cake stand we were able to rent. I would definitely recommend them!!!
Amazing!Reviewed on 7/27/2013 Rachel S
We decided to go along with the new trend of having cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake, and it was the best way to go! Their cupcakes are SO good, and the best part was we were able to get custom icing colors to go with our decor. They were ready for pick up as promised (we would have had them delivered but waited until the last minute so it wasn't an option), and were just as delicious as the samples we tried. It worked out great with people being able to serve themselves, and pick out which flavor they wanted (we did an assortment of vanilla, chocolate, red velvet and carrot cake). I would highly recommend to everyone!
Elegant and tasty wedding cake!Reviewed on 5/22/2013 kendra k
Brooke did an amazing job on our wedding cake. My husband gave her a photo of a cake we liked and she replicated it flawlessly! It was delicious as well! We are more than happy with her service and highly recommend Love and Buttercream. Thanks again!
Homemade Flair!!Reviewed on 9/12/2012 Carrie P
Everyone needs to get their wedding cake (and all of their baked goods) from Love and Buttercream. The owner, Brooke Wilson, is an amazing person who uses local products/supports local businesses and is truly the nicest person you will ever meet. She is so incredibly creative and innovative and will make your wedding cake/cupcakes/dessert table one that will not be forgotten. She will put together an amazing tasting for you and your fiance that will have your heads reeling with the possibilities and stomachs full (and begging for more). We decided to go for a traditional wedding cake and a specialty groom's cake. Brooke rose to the challenge with flying colors. Our wedding was U of M themed so it was even more amazing because she graduated originally from Michigan State (before heading to culinary school). :) She made the most amazing wolverine with a Michigan helmet on and placed him on a football field and the traditional cake was beautiful--elegant yet modern. Plus, everything was delicious and she let us choose as many flavors for different layers as we wanted. We had 3 different flavors of cake. Overall, an amazing bakery/baker. Great value. Delicious. I cannot say enough good things.
