Of all of the vendors, Buttercream Cakes (St. Paul, MN) was the vendor we had the least contact with throughout the wedding. It was pretty simple so it was quite alright. We actually went in and chose the sample 4-tier cake they had on display. The only problem we had was when we first went in for an appointment, they didn't have us down. The lady looked at the computer and saw that we did have an appointment so she said she'd take us. She was kind of checked out the whole time and didn't really answer our questions. Worst of all, she microwaved our samples which was horrible because it tasted warm. I wasn't satisfied so I called for another appointment and it was a much better appointment. We ended up changing the flavors and some of the minor details. I'm glad I called and scheduled another appointment! Other than that, the cake tasted AMAZING!! Family members were texting me days after my wedding to see if I took any leftover cake home!

I got married last week (March 29, 2014)! A cake from Buttercream was part of the package we had with the U of M Landscape Arboretum. We met with them at the Minnetonka location and it was hard to decide on flavors, since they were all so amazing! We were very impressed with the fact that Buttercream takes the quality of their cakes so seriously - no fondant. Our cake turned out absolutely stunning - it was EXACTLY what I had imagined and had described to them! I am so pleased with the result! I would recommend Buttercream to anyone. They have a location in St. Paul as well, I believe.

We chose Buttercream for our wedding cake and didn't even go in for cake tasting. (We were living in Arizona at the time!) It was the best cake I've ever had! We got the raspberry royal and the baileys irish cream flavors. Our guests were also raving about how good it was! The only problem was that we had planned to put roses on our cake and that was never done. I would make sure you call and confirm about any pieces that you want added to your cake. Other than that I had no regrets!

The cake is excellent, best cake I have ever had by far!!! We had a cake custome made and we were a little dissapointed in how plain it looked on the outside, and it was a tiered cake that was leaning. For almost 1,000 dollars I would have expected a cake that didn't look like a high school home economics product.

We initially chose Buttercream for our wedding cake vendor because they were the preferred vendor for our venue. After the experience at our tasting, not only due to the quality of the product, but also for the incredible service, I would go with them again in a heartbeat! They have such a beautiful assortment of cakes and the flavors are better than anything I have ever had. They were great about showing us different styles, talking through flavors and decorations that we could add to our cake and helped us to land on the one that would be perfect for us. They coordinated everything with our venue and the cake was everything we hoped it would be on the day of our wedding. Our guests raved about the "tempting turtle torte" cake and the strawberry lemon was a great light white cake. Buttercream only uses fresh fruit filling and you can definitely tell. No preservatives and the fresh, light cake is to die for. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed in a wedding cake from Buttercream.

Great tasting cake, everything is natural and they don't do cakes with fondant which tastes horrible. They had actual raspberries in our filling! They have numerous designs, and are very reasonably priced compared to competitors. They deliver and set up for a small fee which is so worth it, they did a gorgeous job setting the cake out, arranging fabric ver the stand and adding on flowers from the florist. They call to confirm everything two weeks before the wedding. Great experience and they give you a new replica of your to layer on your 1 year anniversary for free as a thank you, much better than eating 1 year old cake! Also saves you money cause the cake you get for the wedding the whole thing can be served to guests versus buying more ate to have a layer saved for your 1 year anniversary!

We loved the Rasp royal and the Rasp chocolate. So did everyone at the wedding. We had a Scottish themed wedding and I wanted to add my tartan plaid around the base. They were really helpful at giving me idea on what would work and what wouldn't. The cakes turned out beautiful and tasted great.

We chose Buttercream for a 4-tiered wedding cake. The cake was beautiful- exactly as we had discussed. Of the two flavors, we got rave reviews from guests on both, but we all particularly enjoyed the Bailey's chocolate. The bakery made everything so easy on a very busy, stressful day. Thank you!

I chose Buttercream Cakes & Desserts (St. Paul & Minnetonka, MN) for my wedding cake. The variety of cake flavors is wonderful. I chose Almond Praline and Bailey's Chocolate and received many compliments from my guests. The only reason I didn't rate the vendor a 5.0 was due to miscommunication on the split between the two flavors. There was suppposed to be a 50/50 split between the two flavors, but only about 10% of the cake was the Bailey's Chocolate. When I called to inform Buttercream of the mistake, they offered a $100 gift card to remedy the situation. When confirming your flavors, I suggest clearly identify which flavor you want each layer (versus saying 50/50 split). For example, I should have specified that I wanted the top and bottom layers Almond Praline, and the middle three layers be Bailey's Chocolate.

Best wedding cake ever! We tried multiple cake places and they had not only the best flavors but also the most beautiful cakes! The cake tasted awesome and even froze well so we could enjoy it after our honeymoon. They were always helpful with all of my questions and nailed my personalized design. They were even able to replicate the lace from my dress onto the cake.

They don't make you freeze your cake topper for the traditional first anniversary cake eating. They give you a brand new cake for your first anniversary which allows you to enjoy a much better tasting cake than the frozen one.

Rather than flowers, I carried a vintage brooch bouquet that I had made myself. I wanted the cake to reflect that brooch theme, but I don't have a very creative mind. I provided some large silk flowers and four vintage brooches to Buttercream, thinking they would just "waterfall" them down the front of the cake. The team at Buttercream deconstructed the silks and used the brooches as flower centers. The result was colorful, elegant, and better than anything I could have ever imagined. And the cake itself was the most delicious cake I had ever tasted. From my initial meeting at Buttercream until the last piece of cake was eaten, I couldn't have imagined a smoother process in getting a lovely and delicious centerpiece for the wedding!

The cake tasted great, but i had a 2 tier square cake, and the tiers were not lined up and the icing looked sloppy. I also went into the shop the day before the wedding to see if i could see the cake, and they said no b/c all cakes were made from the bakers home residence and then delivered. all in all, cake tasted great, service was horrible.

Buttercream and Renee helped create an amazing cake, both in look and taste!! We met with her twice and each time she was detail orientated and created a comfortable feeling. She confirmed all that we wanted and I trusted that when I arrived at the reception that all I thought it would be was there. It was more!! The guests raved about the taste and the flexibility they offered allowed us to create the look we were going for.

Cake taste was absolutely delicious! We had 4 tier cake with 3 different flavors - it was awesome! Only complaint is decorative flowers designed by Buttercream were not perfect - some were falling apart. For how expensive the cake is, the flowers should not be falling apart, instead they should be perfect.

Buttercream was amazing!! The cake was delicious and it looked wonderful!! We were really pleased with it!!! The only issue I had was communication. We took in the ribbon/leaves we were going to use for the wedding and was told we would get a call approx 1 week later. I never received the call... I sent out an email with our final head count and received an email from the store asking when our event date was... then received a call from one of the ladies that works at a different office stating that we need to go over the final details now.... I was confused and felt a little rushed... It all got done and it looked wonderful though!!

Buttercream cakes are amazing. We had a great time at our tasting and loved the final product. Go taste and see what all the fuss is about. You won't be disappointed!

This cake was absolutely delicious. We went with two flavors. We had white cake with praline filling and chocolate cake with raspberry filling. We received many compliments on both flavors. It was a little unclear on the delivery time of the cake, but overall it was a great experience. The tasting was very simple and they were helpful in designing our beautiful cake. I do have to admit that the cakes are a little expensive, but it looked exactly how we expected and tasted amazing. The communication was pretty easy as well. Buttercream is very well known and I am happy to contribute to their excellent reputation.

My husband and I did not have our hearts set on a wedding cake. We wanted some type of dessert, but didn't know exactly what we wanted. When we had our tasting at the reception venue, there was a wedding cake made by Buttercream. It not only looked amazing, but it was delicious! We made an appointment with Greg at Buttercream on a weeknight to try different cakes. Based on our our wants and needs, we decided to do mini dessert parfaits. If you've never seen them, picture a piece of cake in a cup that looks fantastic and tastes even better than it looks! Our guests LOVED them. We put them on a cupcake tree so they look super cute on display...and guests can serve themselves. It's awesome because it allows everyone to mingle as they taste a delicious dessert by Buttercream. I highly recommend Buttercream for any dessert you may need - whether it be weddings, holidays, birthdays or you just want a delicous treat for your family. :=)

We went with a small cake for the wedding party and family and then got cupcakes for our guests. we were told we could have 4 flavors with our cake package (we weren't expecting that and were so pumped) and could barely decide. All of the flavors are so great. They're fresh and light and...mmmmmm! The cupcakes were HUGE and our guests were so excited about them. I absolutely LOVED the cake and the service. We will send everyone we know to Buttercream...AND continue to work with them in the years to come.

We live in Minnesota and were married in NH. Originally we had a NH baker that was going to make our cake, but then circumstances changed and we needed to find another. We wanted to be able to taste our cake before the wedding and so we went to Buttercream, one of the only places willing to meet with us on a Sunday. We met with the owner and sampled amazing cakes. There were only 2 that we didn't like - one was too rich for my palate and the other - well, we just don't like coconut. There were so many options though - which was great.

Once we settled on the flavors we wanted - s'mores and vanilla/strawberry/lemon - we broke the news that we'd need the cake in NH. I don't even think he blinked. He explained how he would recommend packing it and included it in the quote. Our cake fed 125 people and traveled to NH successfully - all for under $600! Everyone raved about the taste and I can't wait for our 1 year to get our cake top!
Highly recommend them!

Buttercream has a great reputation and amazing cakes. However, there were just some minor issues, such as they gave us the wrong kind of cake! I normally wouldn’t mind (since they tasted incredible) but I had menus for each guest that specified the cakes we were serving. Overall, great cakes, but bad mess up!

Many thanks to Buttercream for such amazing service, they were incredibly easy and nice to work with. Very impressed with the variety of flavors at our cake tasting. We decided to have centerpiece cakes at each table and loved that we could offer our guests so many different flavors to choose from...they were all so delicious! These cakes are seriously the best cakes we've ever had. Our guests are still raving about their incredible flavor. Loved that they don't use fondant, loved that they don't freeze their cakes, loved that they don't use artificial coloring...loved everything! HIGHLY recommend scheduling a tasting, you will be amazed.

These cakes are AMAZING!! We had a 4 tier cake with Neapolitan and baileys chocolate flavors. We had guests stopping us on the dance floor to tell us how wonderful the cake was. It tastes so fresh and light, they even gave us a second sample tray for us to bring home at our taste testing because we were joking about wanting more!!! We could not have asked for a better cake.

Compared to other bakeries, I got a very reasonable price for my wedding cake and I thought it looked great. The guests raved about the flavors: Strawberry a la Ritz, which was really light, fluffy and refreshing, and Chocolate Lovers, which is a really rich torte like cake.

We used Buttercream for our wedding in July of 2011. The cake is VERY expensive (we paid $1,400 for 250 guests), but the tasting was so great we thought it would be worth it. On the day of our wedding, I was very disappointed with the look of our cake. It looked terrible. The flowers were not the color we had discussed, and they used some sort of liquid to tack our ribbon onto the cake, that made some of the ribbon transparent. I was embarrassed that it was OUR wedding cake! I didn't even want our guests to see it.
I will give them credit for the taste of the cake. It was definitely the best wedding cake that I've tasted.
The customer service is very poor as well. I asked to have a breakdown of the cost of our cake e-mailed to me and the lady said she wouldn't know the first thing to do, to e-mail it to me! Then she said she would send it to me in the mail, I never received a breakdown! How do you run a business without knowing how to e-mail or even having a spreadsheet ready for clients!?!

Buttercream was fun and has beautiful and delicious cakes! We throughly enjoyed our cake tasting. I love that we were able to choose different flavors for different layers allowing both my groom and I to choose our favorites. The artist who drew our thoughts for our cake was great. When we first saw our cake at the reception I was blown away, it was perfect! One thing to note that I was unaware of: if you don't buy your cake topper from Buttercream they do not place it on the cake, it is then your caterer's job. Just something to note.

The wedding cake and the dessert station they put together for my daughter's wedding reception was beyond delicious. The cake melted in your mouth, the whoopie pies were outstanding, the fruit tarts were very colorful and the taste was fresh and delcious and the Raspberry Shooters were fabulous. So many of the guests were complimenting us on how fabulous the dessert station was and how the cake was the 'best' cake they had ever had...ever! I agreed - I am planning on ordering a cake from them soon for a birthday event and can't wait! I do alot of homemade baking myself, but the Amaretto Mouse cake we had at the wedding was by far the most delicious cake I have ever had...hats off to Buttercream! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for that special cake!

We picked Buttercream because our caterer would have charged us a cake cutting fee if we picked any other cake. Our cake from Buttercream was BEAUTIFUL -- absolutely gorgeous. I liked that they had a lot of different cake styles to choose from at their place in Minnetonka. I didn't love the cake's taste (it was fine), but many of our guests raved about it so I'm guessing the taste is what the vast majority of people like - and after all, it's nice to please the guests! My main complaint was that the pieces cut by our caterer (Bayview) for our guests were extremely small, so we ended up with a ton of leftover cake. We could have purchased much less cake (which would have been nice because it was expensive per slice!). I wish Bayview and Buttercream would have coordinated more because they have this special relationship, and that we could have ordered less cake and saved some money. However, my main focus was the appearance of the cake, and that was awesome!

I only got a bite of cake during our cake cutting, but from the tastings we had with Buttercream I know it was great. Our guests loved the cake. The only complaint I could find was the limited decorative options included in the base price. We ended up purchasing ribbon which they put on for us, and flower petals to make the cake more interesting. Our guests however loved how simple and elegant it looked. We probably would have ordered our groom's cake through them as well if we had more decorative options.

Quality of service was very poor. The flavor was about the only thing that was good about the cake. The design was nothing like what we had discussed/sketched together. I even had given them a picture of exactly what we wanted and specific color swatches and the design just came out horrible...nothing like what we wanted. The cake was also stacked with a gap inbetween tiers and the main cake was stacked crooked. They need more professional people delivering cakes.

It was also hard to get a hold of them. I called them several times trying to give them final payment and nobody would answer the phone. Also, their turn around for responding to e-mails was usually more than 3 days.

Our cakes, serving 130 people, cost over $500...and the design was horrible, so there was not much value for cost. If you use Buttercream make sure you pick a design that a monkey could do and one that you see multiple times in their picture books so you know that they can do them. Also, when you actually look through the picture books they provide you to pick a design from, their pictures look nothing like the pictures on their website.

Buttercream is good for one thing...flavorfull cakes. Hopes this helps some brides out there.

I don't normally like cake but Buttercream Cakes are awesome. we tried numerous places and every place that we tried we left feeling very sick, not Buttercream. I have also been to many weddings were they ended up with tons of left over cake. they made our cake the exact way that we wanted it to look and we only had maybe 5 to 6 pcs of cake left after the wedding. We are also please with the fact that next year on our anniversary they will make us a fresh duplicate of our cake top. I would tell everyone I know looking for a wedding cake to go with Buttercream.

We got our cake from Buttercream, and it was perfect.

When we went cake tasting, we had 3 places in one weekend, and Buttercream was by far the best tasting cake of the 3, and quite possibly the best tasting cake I've ever eaten. Our guests are still talking about it 2 weeks later, and my husband (who doesn't actually like most cake) is looking forward to our complimentary 1-year anniversary cake.

We sat down with a consultant who went over their services, then fed us 8 different types of cake, all incredible. He asked about us and our wedding plans, and came up with a design we loved as we tried the cake. He drew out the design, gave us price quotes, explained how everything worked, and was very calming.

We got to choose 2 different flavors for the cake. They arranged delivery with the reception site, and called 2 weeks ahead of time to confirm everything with us and make sure everything was ready.


The price is a little high, but pretty comparable to other bakeries of this calibre.
However, considering how perfect the cake was, and how great it tasted, it was worth the cost.

I used Buttercream for my wedding cupcakes. They tasted amazing and I received many compliments on them. Buttercream let me bring my own cupcake flags, which they then put on themselves and delivered to my venue. The variety of cakes they had was great. They worked directly with my venue so I had little to worry about. The cost was great and I was very happy with their services.

Love, love, loved our cakes. We did a cake at each table so that people could get a good-sized piece rather than the sliver you get at most weddings. We were able to have 4 different flavors of cake, each with a different design. Besides being beautiful, the cakes were phenomenally delicious. I think the cakes were probably the hit of the entire wedding -- our guests raved about them.

Our venue paid for our wedding cake from Buttercream if we signed the contract by a certain date. After our tasting, we were satisfied and excited about our cake.

However, as the our wedding date came closer, we experienced a lot of trouble with Buttercream returning our calls. They would call us, leave a message, we would return the call and were told that whoever we needed to talk to wasn't in that day and that they would call us back at this time on this day. At least twice, that day and time came and went without a phone call.

I was living in Oregon while planning my wedding. When I came to Minnesota about a week before my wedding, I received a phone call rudely asking me where my cake topper and the ribbon for the cake was. I felt definite attitude from the employee over the phone. No one had told me that Buttercream needed these a week before the wedding. I had the cake topper sent to my mom in my hometown, about 5 hours from St. Paul and she had to rush mail it to them. NOT COOL. When I brought the ribbon in a day or so later, I was in the reception area for at least 10 minutes before anyone even said Hi to me, despite even though I think they have some kind of bell on their door that rings when you come in and despite employees walking by multiple times. Finally someone came out and eventually told me that I actually didn't need to have my cake topper rush sent to them because they could just put it on the day-of. When I told them about the person who had been rude to me on the phone and about my frustration with their lack of communication, they apologized, but it didn't seem sincere.

On our wedding day, our cake was delivered on time, with the correct decorations and it was good. But, if I were to get married again and my venue hadn't paid for the cake, I wouldn't be going with Buttercream. Their employees were rude, made my mom rush ship something to them that didn't actually need to be, and not good at returning phone calls. Those problems significantly outweighed the positives.

We used Buttercream dessert bars for my daughter's 7-16-10 wedding instead of the traditional wedding cake. We had made the appointment for a taste test and were a little perplexed when cake samples were brought out instead of bars. When we told the saleswoman we were here to taste bars, she said she didn't see any samples in the back. Another gentleman overhearing our conversation said he knew where they were. All the bars we tried were fantastic! It was very hard to choose from the nine samples we got to taste. My daughter selected the: Carmelita, Lemon, Brownie with Cream Cheese Frosting and the Creme de Menthe Brownie. Since they were extremely rich bars, we requested they be cut into 56 pieces and put on trays. We paid a little extra, but it saved time and money. (If the bars wouldn't have been cut, most of it would have been wasted, as they are so rich. Since they were smaller, it also gave our guests a chance to try more than one.) Delivery was free as Buttercream is the prefered vendor for our reception site. Considering the cost of a wedding cake, these bars were a great value!! Being they were cut in half, they served many so many people at a fraction of the cost. The guests raved about the bars too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The tasting is in just little little hole in the wall and was alright, we decided to stick with them because our reception hall has a contract with them, so if we ordered from somewhere else we had to pay the cake cutting fee. But the cake at the wedding was delicious I think the tasting cakes may have been sitting out for a while. Great cake!

Buttercream is affiliated with our reception site's catering company, so it was cost effective to use them, however, I had planned on using them all along. We met with a consultant last fall to taste flavors and design the cake.

The cake that arrived on our wedding day was exactly what I imagined and the flavors (Chocolate Lovers and Almond Praline) were just what I wanted.

I can't wait to get my anniversary cake from them next year!

We were so busy we only tasted the cupcake we cut, but the guests ate them all up, so they must have loved them. We ordered before we knew our final count and had almost 2 for each person... good thing, we had only about 10 left over at the end of the night! They were great to work with as well! Price was a good average cost for cake. We just had our one year anniversary and truly enjoyed the free anniversary cake!

Our cake collapsed shortly after our reception started. Buttercream denied it as being their fault. The sent replacement sheet cake otherwise an exact replacement would have been several hours. The cake was very expensive and although it tasted great I was very disappointed with their service. We did eventually get a partial refund which our reception vendor negotiated for us. Definately would not recommend using them.

I usually am not a fan of cake. But not only was our Chocolate Lovers and Raspberry Royale cake delicious, it was also beautiful. We were so happy with our experience working with Buttercream Collection that we're practically looking for another reason to order a cake. The staff were easy to work with, and they were able to get us the cake we wanted even on short notice. The cake tasting is one of my best memories from wedding planning. Be sure to go with an empty stomach! The location is obscure and our initial impression of the bakery was questionable, but we were glad we decided to give it a chance. The most difficult part of ordering our cake was deciding which of their delicious flavors to choose. Good thing we got to pick two. The cake was a little pricey, but even in hindsight, we are happy that we choose to spend the money.

Everyone I spoke to told me that the best wedding cake they'd ever eaten came from Buttercream. We shopped around, but it's just the true: Buttercream makes the best cake in Minnesota. There's just no contest. As a result, the customer service was a bit less enthusiastic than the other vendors we met with (who were trying to sell us something--Buttercream just knows their cake speaks for itself). That said, they were still very professional, promptly responded whenever we contacted them, and absolutely reliable.

The cake was hands down spectacular. We got the delicious white chocolate raspberry (with fresh berries!) cake and the incredibly moist chocolate lovers cake. I can't wait until we hit 1 year of being married so we can go back and get our anniversary cake layer. Also, they smoothed out the buttercream so completely that my aunt wouldn't believe that it wasn't fondant. It was a gorgeous cake.

It's a little expensive, but I have absolutely no regrets. This was memorably delicious cake.

What We Wanted: A cake that looked cute and wasn't very expensive. Neither Steve nor I really like cake, so we just needed something to cut for pictures.

What We Got: A cake that looked very cute and tasted good! It wasn't cheap, but Buttercream is the exclusive vendor for the Varsity - so we didn't have a choice.

Our cake earned rave reviews from our guests. The only bite of cake I had was the one that Steve fed me, but it was pretty good (for cake) . I love how it looked - swiss dots with a little bit of silver glitter. Perfect.

Buttercream isn't the easiest vendor to meet with, especially when you have weird schedules like me and Steve. And even though we had an appointment, they didn't have a table available for us - so we ended up having our tasting in the kitchen. But it looked perfect and apparently tasted amazing, so two thumbs up!

We worked mainly with Greg at the St. Paul buttercream location and he pretty much sold us on the cakes. He was GREAT to work with, funny and reassuring. Everytime we went in to talk about the cakes, he gave us a platter of samples right there or to take home. We went with centerpiece cakes and gave them pictures of the designs- which came out AMAZINGLY. I would definitely recommend centerpiece cakes, not just to save on money for flowers, but as a wow-factor. They were a bit on the expensive side, but the cakes were amazing- and my mom who hates frosting, was trying to take all the leftovers home. We will be purchasing cakes from Buttercream for all our major events from now on- highly recommended!!!

Buttercream was amazing. When you go in for your tasting they give you about 5 or 6 flavors to taste (they have at least 30 different flavors). My fiance and I went through the flavor sheet and had wanted to try a couple of more. We called and Buttercream let us pick an extra six to try/taste on the day of our tasting. All of the flavors are the same cost per slice, which was nice, because it didn't force you to just go with vanilla or chocolate to save money, you could pick raspberry royale (delicious, don't forget to try this one), turtle, strawberry trifle, etc...

I had my heart set on a four tier cake (even though a three tier would be more than enough), when I requested a four tier the person doing our tasting very politely told me that three would be enough (trying to make sure we didn't order more than we needed so we could save money), but didn't scoff and said nothing else about it when I said I liked the look of the four tiers better.

About a week before our wedding we called to change around the layers/which type we had at each layer and they had no problems with that.

Everyone loved our cake (no stiff/sugary frosting for buttercream)! The finished look of the product was exactly what we had described and the taste of it on the day of was amazing!

Would definitly recomment Buttercream to all brides still looking for a bakery.

We had amazing cakes with Buttercream--so amazing that all 130 people managed to eat every single bite of all 12 cakes! Better than wedding cakes, Buttercream makes cakes that taste just like a cake--not like the dry sheet variety I've been served at weddings lately. All the staff were great to work with and quick to respond. I appreciated that they called to touch base and remind me of due dates--easy to forget when you're planning a wedding.

This place was awesome. The initial cake tasting was a bit awkward, because the guy working there seemed to assume that we were just there to taste the cake and weren't actually going to work with them. But, they know what they're doing! They don't use any fondant, which I think is a definite perk. And even though they don't, the cake still looked like it had fondant covering. I had people looking at my photos ask if it was, but they're talented people over at Buttercream! I also really like the fact that they sell a one-year cake topper for your anniversary (only $17), so you don't have to do fruitcake and don't have to worry about freezing it. They keep your records so all you have to do is call them up and they can give you a cake just the same as you had on your wedding day!

It's been almost three months since our wedding and our guests continue to comment on our wedding cake! It was a beautiful cake. Their Connecticut carrot cake has to be one of the best cakes I have tasted. The Bailey's chocolate was also very yummy! We had a great experience with the staff. Very helpful and polite. My florist also commented on their great communication. A cake from Buttercream is worth every extra penny.

I was a little disappointed with the look of my wedding cake from Buttercream. Some of the details on the cake looked like they got smushed during the transport from the shop to the reception. Also, the cake didn't taste as good as it did during the tasting session.

We actually ordered dessert shooters for our wedding. They were adorable little cake/buttercream treats in a shot glass. They were delicious and looked great. That is where our praise stops, however. When we made our first tasting appointment, we informed the staff member that we wanted to specifically taste the shooters. When we arrived, all they had for us to taste was cake. When we asked about the shooters, she was able to scrounge up two samples and both of them were flavors that we were not considering. We left very disappointed. We eventually called back and asked for a second tasting of only the shooters. Again when went back, they brought out cake. When we asked about the shooters, they were able to find some more for us to taste. Another thing we noticed was that the staff was really unprofessional and acted like they were in junior high. I expect that when I come in to someplace and they want my business, they will not be yelling back and forth to each other from their offices and running around being goofy.

The cake was stunning and everything we hoped for! They were very flexible to work with our ideas. We went with the chocolate cappuccino and lemon raspberry flavors - delicious! It was nice to not have to worry about the cake, since they are well-established and delivered it to our reception site. We would definitely recommend Buttercream to other couples looking for a bakery.

The best cake ever! Great service and helpful staff!! I wasn't really into the cake idea but wanted a dessert. Buttercream staff talked to me about my personality and the overall theme of the wedding. The staff member drew up an idea that was perfect! I was very happy with them! I only knocked the "value for cost" down a little because it was more expensive then other quotes I received, but not way more.
I would recommend this bakery!
I purchased a cake but I tried their dessert shooters and candy as well. Everything was amazing!!!

Buttercream was A+ = we contracted with them via Bellagala and I must admit at first it seemed rather expensive... but it was worth it! I have never, ever heard about a wedding cake over one month after the wedding!

Working with them was very easy, confirming details before I needed to call them... everything was first rate!

Thanks!

We had a great experience with Buttercream. We had a tasting 8 months before the wedding, and it was great. I called a month before the wedding just to confirm they still had the order, then they called two weeks before to confirm the number of people they needed to serve. The cake turned out absolutely gorgeous, and tasted better than I recalled from the tasting. One thing I also enjoyed was that instead of keeping the top tier of the cake to freeze (which honestly never turns out well, or tastes well a year later), they gave us a coupon to get a small cake to order on our anniversary.

Off the chart - this cake was to die for. I don't think many guests expect much of a wedding cake other than it looking good, but we should have had a cake twice as big, b/c people were snarfing it up. It was elegant - way beyond my expectations. Altho it was a simple design and execution, it was done perfectly. They're very easy to work with and really have the process down to an art/science. There was not one hitch in the scheduling. We were slightly worried about the sheer number of cakes they produce - how would ours be 'special' among so many others, but they knocked it out of the park. So many people have told is it was the best cake (not just wedding cake) they'd ever tasted! Great value for a premium product. Yum!

The cost is a bit higher than other bakeries I had inquired with however the quality of service and end product we received made that not an issue. We were both happy in addition to many of our family and friends were pleased as well. Many of our guests commented on how fresh and amazing the cake tasted.

Buttercream was the only bakery that my husband and I went cake tasting at, but we liked what we tasted so much that we didn�t feel we had to go anywhere else. I did compare some prices before setting up the appointment and they seemed normal or a little under as far as cost per slice. The only thing that seemed a bit weird is that when we walked in, they had �pre-designed� wedding cakes that you pick from for yours. I am not sure if they can make a custom design as I wasn�t too worried about it and I did really like one of the ones that they had. They handled the delivery and setup of the cake at our reception venue. When we arrived at our reception, the cake was already set up in place and looking gorgeous. We had SO many compliments on our cake that night and even the few days after the wedding. I didn�t hear of anyone not eating it. Buttercream believes in making everything fresh. Nothing is ever frozen and our cake was literally made the day before the wedding and kept in a refrigerator. Since they believe in freshness, they don�t want you to save the top tier. Instead, for your one year anniversary, you get a voucher to come in and they give you a free 8� round cake to use to celebrate your anniversary. I loved the taste so much, I am trying to think of other excuses to order a cake from them. One of my husband�s cousins called us after the wedding (she just finished culinary school, is a caterer and has done some wedding cakes) and she asked who we ordered our cake from and what kind of frosting they used. She lives about 6-8 hours away but was still curious because she loved it too!

The only negative thing was that when I went to pick it up, they had it boxed for delivery (and it wasn't supposed to be) and I had to wait about a half hour for them to find it and then re-box it for me to take. That wasn't fun. BUT if I had it to do over again... I would use Buttercream again for sure!!

I cannot say enough good things about the delicious cakes Buttercream makes! WOW! To give you an indication of how good they are: My dad very strongly dislikes frosting. He normally scrapes most, if not all, of the frosting off of his slice of cake. I am not as bad as that, but I am picky about my frosting. I had tried them at a wedding fair, and they were great. I KNEW even my dad would like the frosting. At our tasting, HE is the one that kept going for the sample dab of frosting! Buttercream is more expensive than some cake vendors, but after trying them at the wedding fair, I knew I HAD to have one.

I went to the tasting with a couple pictures, but when I got there, I quickly found something I liked even better. Our wedding cake looked amazing, and tasted even better!

What can I say about Buttercream - they are the best of the best when it comes to wedding cakes. Our wedding guests were raving about our cake all night long and many helped themselves to a second piece of cake!

Ther were times when the staff at Buttercream seemed a bit confused, so be sure to double and triple check that your cake information is correct.

Cake delivery, set up, and communication between our caterer and Buttercream went smoothly. It's nice to work with such an established wedding cake company and you won't be disappointed with their delicious cakes and innovative cake designs.

Our cake turned out absolutely beautiful. The Buttercream Cake bakery in St. Paul have a wonderful team that work well together and they produced a gorgeous and absolutely delicious cake! Our guests raved it was the best cake they had ever had. I agree it was so good I had 2 slices that night. I think everyone else did as we had none left!
It was gorgeous and the stand they had complimented all the other decorations so well. The cost was a little high but for a cake that good - it worked out well.
Our reception vendor has a deal with them so he handled all the details we just decided on the flavor and how it should look.
I would recommend them to anyone.

Our cake was delicious and beautiful. The person we met with was not as helpful as I would have liked in helping me finalize my cake. I explained what I did and didn't like hoping that they would show me examples of what they could do but I didn't get that. I got the feeling that they wanted me to just tell them exactly what I wanted and they would try to do it, but since I have no cake-making skills, I don't know what is or isn't do-able. The cake turned out very nice, and tasted great, the ordering process was just a little unprofessional.

I thought working with Buttercream was very pleasant. They were helpful and patient with us during our "selection" process. It was extremely difficult to narrow down the choice of cake when all the flavors were delicious. I did like the fact that the cake was all natural with no artificial coloring. It is positively amazing what they can do with decorating without all that color. Anyway, our guest loved the cake and we had 3 pieces to bring home! I did think they were quite expensive, but on the otherhand the cake was moist, fresh and delicious.

We purchased our wedding cake from Buttercream and their cake is delicious even if it was overpriced. Our experience at first was very positive. However, part of their "pitch" to sell the cake was that they would provide us a free cake on our anniversary, so we wouldn't have to freeze our top tier and eat old cake. That sounded good to us. However, 2 weeks after our anniversary had passed we thought we would have seen a postcard or gotten a phone call. My husband called them and asked about our anniversary cake, they gladly took down the flavors and started to order it, then told us we would have to pay $22. After some arguing, they reluctantly agreed to give us our cake for free, even though that was part of the pitch to get us to use their services in the first place. We got our cake, but I'm not going back their again. Their customer service is horrible.

Everyone told me that I had the best tasting wedding cake they had ever had! My cake was so moist and the frosting was perfect - not too grainy and not too sweet. The only downside is that the person I initially worked with was quite rude. So I requested to work with someone else for the design process and I had a much better experience.

They are very lucky that their cake is so incredibly delicious. If it was not, their horrendous customer service would have shuttered the doors long ago. We worked (if you can call it that...) with the team at the St Paul branch. We were made to feel about 2 inches tall by the bored, condescending, jerk of a sales consultant. Later, our order was lost. Had I not called to confirm the order a week before, we may not have had a cake on our wedding day. To their credit, the cake was delivered on time and looked beautiful. Everyone raved that it was the best cake that they had ever eaten. One of our guests bragged about eating 4 slices.

So, if you are willing to be treated poorly to get a good cake for your event, then use Buttercream. It was delicious. If you are looking for a warm, respectful, touchy feely cake vendor, then look elsewhere.

The cake was by far the best cake I have ever had!!! The only down side is that you don't really get to customize anything but there is plenty of choices that was still very happy. With their many locations I recomend doing EVERYTHING from the St. Paul location if possible as I had some issues with the fact that my cake topper and decor was in Minnetonka and had to call the St. Paul office a few times to let them know they really did have things they didn't think they did. Overall I was very happy but just work thru St. Paul location if possible.

Also, they have options for you to choose from and that's it. I wanted some sugar flowers on my cake and they had a couple of options for flowers, but would not make them to match a picture that I had. It was a very beautiful cake nonetheless.

I was totally dissatisfied with this companies lack of comunnication with there customers. Me in particular. They did not notify us with the initial consultation and tasting that we needed to return the cake parts or that there would be any as well as did not notify us that we needed a cake stand for our cake either. Luckily nothing went wrong with the cake. Except that the frosting and leaves that were on it were a little smudged when we finally did get to cut into it. Being that they work with couples that do not know much about the wedding process and don't know all the extra details that sometime go with cakes and such they should be more informative with their couples and make sure to let them know everything as we do asometimes forget to ask all the questions or do not know for certain some of the questions to ask. Although their cakes are very good and everything I would not recommend them to anyone because of their lack of proper communication and making sure the couples know all that they need to know about what needs to be returned and what they need for their cakes.

Buttercream has amazing cakes!

If they were not so darn good, I would not have gone with their services. Their customer service is HORRIBLE! Any question is too much for them. Half of the people have no clue what they are doing and make you feel as though you are taking up too much of their time. We were quoted one thing and the next week, it was a totally different quote. For example, one of the problems we encountered was that we were told that they had gluten free cakes, then went to order one, and they told us that they didn't do gluten free. They need new employess, ones that actually care about customer service. I mean they are definately not the cheapest place out there, so don't treat your customers as though you have no pride in your business.

Buttercream did an excellent job in helping us plan our cake, and they let us come taste twice when we changed our mind about the flavor. The cake turned out exactly how I wanted it, and everyone raved that it was the best wedding cake they ever had. The only problem was when I was ordering the cake with the bakery in St Paul. My consultant in Minnetonka told me to only order for 2/3 of my wedding guests, because not everyone eats cake. When I called the bakery 12 days before my wedding to confirm my order, I told them the number of slices I wanted, and when they realized that I wanted to order cake for 2/3 of the guests, they bullied me, were rude to me, and even got the manager on the phone. I was so flustered already with my wedding being so close and didn't want to deal with it, so I just ordered the amount they wanted me to, and of course we had way too much cake. The extra sheet cake we ordered did not get touched, and then most of it went to waste. My advice is to just lie about the size of your wedding, which I would definitely do next time!

Buttercream is all-natural and very tasty, as well as recommended by our site (Gale Mansion), so they were the only cake place to which we went. It was cheaper because then the Gale didn't charge us a cake-cutting fee. They also took care of all the set-up and delivery, and will give us a free mini-cake on our one-year anniversary, which is rad. My only complaint is that I wanted sprinkles on the cake - I didn't choose any of their designs. The first person I told, one of the owners or managers, actually dropped his jaw when I told him I wanted sprinkles, and basically said that it would look sloppy. He showed me other options and tried to talk me out of it. Later, I spoke to Abby on the phone, and though she was surprised at the request, she made it happen. We had many compliments on our fun-sprinkled cake, and very little left over. I recommend the chocolate with the Bailey's filling - mwah.

YUMMY! Just go and try the cake! They won't use anything artificial (ie fondant and food coloring) but they more than makeup for it in their creative chocolate and other decorating! I had so many compliments, probably as many as the dress! People thought we spent a mint but it was really reasonable! I can't wait to have more on our 1st anniversary!

We used Lancer as our catering service, so Buttercream came with them. Their price per slice of cake was over-priced, and if we didn't go with them, we still had to pay $1 per slice, plus the cost of the other cake. So, it was easier to go with them, and I am glad we did. The cake looked and tasted AWESOME. We had a chocolate cake, and even people who don't like chocolate LOVED it. We have heard so many guests rave about our cake! BEST CAKE EVER! It's worth EVERY penny you pay for it.

We got so many compliments on the cake it was unbelievable! We transported 19 cakes for 4 hours to the North Shore of Lake Superior (they were "freeze blasted") and they kept WONDERFULLY! We ordered the fillings of bailey's irish cream, raspberry cream, and almond praline... everybody RAVED about them and went back for seconds!

The tasting was really helpful, and they were very flexible, and the cost was very reasonable too. The frosting was light, not thick and heavy. It was DELICIOUS!

Buttercream is highly rated for their delicious cakes and their beautiful and large variety of cakes. From the cake tasting to the cake-eating at the reception, we loved their cake. The color of the cake turned out to be a little darker ivory than we had anticipated, but they worked with us so well to provide us with a cake we had slightly modified. They were very pleasant to work with also. For great tasting cake and a reliable experience, whatever the occasion, choose Buttercream!

Buttercream Minnetonka cakes were AMAZING! We chose Centerpiece cakes so that every table had their own flavor of cake. People ate 2 and 3 peices! Everyone was raving about how delicious our cake was. The ingredients are all natural. No Frozen fruit, no lard. And you can tell when you taste it. The icing is light and fluffy. WOW. This bakery is no THE ONLY place that my parents will order a cake. My dad threw a surprise birthday party for my mom 4 months after my wedding, and INSISTED that I call Buttercream Minnetonka to order the birthday cake.

We went to Buttercream for a tasting and very much considered using them. We got married up north and couldn't find a bakery we liked up there for a while. We preferred to not have to transport the cakes but would have done that for Buttercream. Their cakes are a little more expensive than some local bakeries but it is worth it.

The whole experience from begining to end with Buttercream was fantastic. They prepared 5 cake flavors of our choice for us to test (they gave us a long list of flavors to choose from) and and they were delicious. We were able to pick out a design from their many cake designs and even just browse around in their gallery full of "dummy cakes" to get "life-size" examples, it was so helpful. In the end we chose one of their designs and customized it to match our wedding colors, though we could have designed the entire cake if we had wanted to.
The ingredients are wonderful and it doesnt sacrifice flavor for looks at all- at my wedding everyone commented that it was the very best wedding cake they'd ever had, and I completely agree.
The service was helpful, friendly, prompt, and really on top of it. They were wondeful.
Our cake was pricey but we were an exceptional case- it was an incredibly fancy cake which served $275 people (including delivery and set up)! That said, they will work with your budget to fit it to your needs. Highly recommend.

The cakes were absolutely wonderful. We had picked out two flavors (Kahlua and Irish Cream). Our guests still haven't stopped commenting on how delicious the cake was and how beautiful it was. The only downside of Buttercream cakes are that they are only made of 100% real ingredients which limits the colors of frosting that can be done. But, knowing that abnormal colors (i.e. teal, purple, etc.) are made of artificial ingredients is a bit scary, so I'm glad to know that our cake was 100% natural.

Our experience with Buttercream started good we they wanted our business, but once a down payment had been made and the cake was paid in full the cusomter service went downhill. Our cake arrived on time but was not exactly what we had expected considering how much it cost. I also didn't appreciate the several calls days after we had visited looking for a down payment while we were still in the process of making a decision. After the wedding we went to return the cake stand, which was very cheap looking, and due to the heat the plexiglass had broke. They kept telling us it was our fault and were very rude on the phone stating they would just charge our credit card if we choose not to pay for it. We explained that the cake stand was in all together when we put it in the car and must have broke from the heat by the time we returned it to them. They were very argumentative stating that this has never happened before and that plexiglass does not crack or break in the heat, and they are made to stand up to all sorts of climates. I would never recommend Buttercream to anyone I know. In fact I would go out of my way to tell others about my experience with them so they don't receive anymore busines.

Buttercream had a great variety of cakes to choose from, and 6 great flavors (we had the raspberry). They were professional, quick, and easy to work with. When they dropped the cake off at the reception, and they realized we hadn't provided a cake topper (oops!), they found the groom's mother to see if it would be all right to add some of the florist's petals & one of the flowers on top of the cake. It turned out to be beautiful.

They make all their cakes with no preservatives and no artificial anything, it's all real butter, real sugar, real fruit, etc. This means two things: The cake tastes FABULOUS, but you can't freeze the top layer for your 1st anniversary. They will make you a fresh top layer one year later!!!

I estimated the price we spent because it was part of a package reception through the Embassy Suites.

I brought in a picture from a magazine of a gorgeous cake I wanted for my wedding and they told me that they could do it. I had high expectations and I was let down. They still provided a beautiful cake, but it was no where near the craftsmanship that I had expected and was told that I would get. The flavoring however, was amazing! We had bailey's chocolate cake with chocolate frosting in between layers and a white chocolate on the outside so it still looked like a wedding cake. Looking back on it, it was a beautiful and delicious cake, but I just had very high expectations. Also, just a bonus that they do not tell you about if you don't ask: Save all the plastic pieces inside the cake that hold it together and bring them in up to two weeks after the wedding and they will give you a gift certificate for a smaller version of your cake for your one year anniversary.

Oh my god, Buttercream is absolutely phenomenal! We went for a cake tasting, fell in love with the buttercream frosting and with the variety and choice of flavors, and nearly fell over when we saw the price - hundreds LESS than we thought it would be. They worked with us to create a custom design that matched our wedding. The staff even remembered me every time I called back. There is no doubt that they would be my top vendor recommendation.

We write this review as a hope that you can learn from our disappointing experience with Buttercream.

On the day of our wedding, the cake we purchased from Buttercream was excellent - it was wonderful wedding cake and we couldn't have asked for more. Our disappointment with Buttercream happened one year later when Buttercream did not fulfill their contractual agreement with us. First, we live out of state in Michigan and were told when we booked Buttercream that they would ship our 1 year anniversary cake to us. When we called to order our anniversary cake we were told that sometime since Sept 2007 their policy on shipping cakes changed and as such we were out of luck - despite our contract we would not get our anniversary cake on our anniversary unless we came to MN. So, we decided to go to MN for our anniversary. We made a special trip home to get our anniversary cake as we were excited to have our wedding cake (just as any new married couple) on our anniversary. We were told and have a contract that says we'd receive a replicate top tier of our wedding cake on our one year anniversary. But what we got was an undecorated cake that looked and tasted nothing like our wedding cake. The explanation we were given again was that a "policy" changed during the past year and we were out of luck.

We are disappointed in Buttercream as we were never warned that policy changes would invalidate our contract with Buttercream. Furthermore, we were never informed that their policies had changed until we tried to get our anniversary cake.

We should also note that despite our disappointment, the Buttercream representative we spoke with showed no remorse and did nothing to make amends.

While Buttercream makes exceptionally tasty cakes, their poor customer service has left a bitter mark on our family. The truly unsatisfying part is that we paid them for this service, and we did not receive what we paid for. We would not recommend Buttercream.

Buttercream is the best tasting cake I've had in a long time. A lot of that has to do with the fact that they use only fresh real ingredients and real butter, etc. This has it's limitations, nothing too fancy, no artificial dyes, and absolutely no fondant! But, as long as you're fine with that, Buttercream provides a phenomenal cake.

Plus you can choose 3 different flavors. And they have so many to choose from.

Buttercream cakes are to die for! I'm really not a big fan of cake mostly because they can be dry and the frosting is often too sweet. Buttercream frosting was just what we were searching for... deliciously smooth and the perfect amount of sweetness. They had many choices of flavors... all of which were delicious. We stuck with a traditional marble cake, but it was so exceptional that our guests raved about it! I would definetly recommend Buttercream to anyone looking for delicious taste and a beautiful cake.

I'm not quite sure how to rate this company. We had no problems at the beginning. They were extremely nice and friendly and promised us that we would have a carefree day. On the big day, the cake did not arrive on time. In fact, they were still putting the cake together when guests were coming. The cake was delicious, but the service kind of put a damper on us. They told us that they had made a mistake on the day that it was to arrive. In the end it turned out fine, but it did not look like we had asked them to make it look.

Their cakes were amazing but a little overpriced for one very thin slice of cake. They were flexible and understanding of what I had invisioned and knew how to change and alter it in just the right way. They were great, I was so impressed but it is expensive and the first time I went there the man was not nearly as friendly and warm as the second time but still they were always professional, responsive, flexible and the overall quality of service was great!

I came across this website while searching for some information for my best friend's wedding and HAD to write a review about Buttercream. Buttercream has the best cakes hands down. All the weddings I've been to lately get those dried out sugary fake tasting cheap cakes. Not only does Buttercream use fresh products, their presentation is beautiful. If you want a fresh and light tasting cake, try the strawberry, it's the best. I got married a few years ago and I still hear about how great our cake tasted... which you hardly ever hear about most wedding cakes. Their buttercream frosting is so smooth and light and their fillings are made with fresh fruits etc. I had a 3 tiered square cake with brown and pink ribbon at the base of each tier. There were also swaravski crystal flowers (each one about the size of a dime) placed all over the cake, then topped it off with a simple bow on the top with the ribbon used for the bases. Their staff was so helpful in picking the right cake for us and making sure we were always on the same page. I never once felt unsure about anything. If you want to make sure you have the best wedding cake around, go to Buttercream Bakery. I have recommended them to several friends and family members and they all have said it's the best cake they have ever tasted!

What's great is that the make the cake look as good as fondant, but it's all buttercream so it tastes ten times better.

They let us combine the marble cake and strawberry cake for a unique flavor too.

The cake was AMAZING! You get to sample a little but of each kind before picking, which is of course the best part. They are a little bit expensive, and one saleslady had a little bit of an attitude like "we are so worth lots of money, just keep adding to the bill" which I didn't appreciate. But in the end, they're just making a cake and it's a good one, so it's worth putting up with it. We also got our favors and little bags from them. DON'T DO IT. Get your favors online, look for the bags yourself, or else bite the bullet and buy the bags only. WAY too expensive.

We had our wedding in November and the zoo was running a special so we got our cake for free. We got to try all kinds of cake and they let us pick more than one flavor to put in our cake. We gave them a picture of how we wanted it decorated and they did a great job.

Cake was delicious. The decor was simple and tasteful. They have so many options for cake, which is in my opinion, the most important part.

We were happy with our cake from Buttercream. The final look was beautiful and the cake was delicious. Our sales person at the store was a little quirky and it took us a long time to set up the order.
In the end, we got what we were looking for and over all we're happy with the experience.

Absolutley amazing wedding cakes! People are still talking about the cake we had at our wedding. They had a great selection of flavors and styles to chose from, and are willing to incorporate floral and cake charms into any design.

Buttercream is more expensive than your usual cake but well worth it. They were concerned I wouldnt have enough cake and sent me an additional cake without charge. The cake was really good and they are really helpful about setting up and talking to your reception vender. They also have samples for you to try. It was so good. They also remade our top tier for our first year anniversary. Highly recommended.

Buttercream's cakes are simply devine. I am not a huge cake fan, I'd much rather a cookie or a brownie ... but I LOVE Buttercream cakes. We had the Bailey's Irish Creme and the Lemon Sunshine and both were perfect. Everybody loved that there was a choice of chocolate and white cake. The gentleman we met with was wonderful and really understood what we were trying to describe in relation to the actual design of our cake. He drew it up as we were talking and added his professional opinion, which I'm so happy we took! The cake looked amazing and managed to taste even better. I loved that they had worked with our venue, they had an account with them, so we got a discount plus, they knew exactly who they needed to work with there. On our 1 year anniversary we had them make a replica of our top tier, again, they were a delight to work with and the cake still tasted as wonderful as we remembered. I always recommend Buttercream to friends and family!

The only reason that we went with Buttercream was that we got arm twisted into it by our venue. (Don't get me started on that one!). Rather than paying an extortion fee for using anyone else, we "chose" buttercream.

Well, we should have known better when we went for our tasting. They were late, and the whole experience was very disorganized. They were very rude, and offer next to no customization, preferring to shove a book at you and demand "pick a style!". Whoa. They were also very sketchy about pricing, claiming that they couldn't even tell us approzimate or average pricing, due to the fact that we were going through one of their kickback venues. Wtf? Would saying "around $4" have killed them? We ended up calling them back when we got home, pretending we'd be having it in our backyard, and getting an estimate on the phone with no problem.

At the wedding, we were very disappointed. The cake looked very slapped together.The delicate cornelli lace pattern we'd chosen was huge and clumsy looking (like fat worms all over the cake!!), the edges of their corrogated plastic plates stuck out under each layer, and the cake was obviously yellow, not "cream/off white". Also, the cake tasted old and "previously frozen". Know the taste I mean? Not quite freezer burnt, but leaning towards it.

If I'd known that the whole cake issue was going to be like this, and that we'd receive such a crappy cake, I would have gone to Walmart and probably come out ahead on it, even after the "not from Buttercream" fee... at least then it would feel like we got what we paid for!

We had many compliments from our guests on the cake taste and really enjoyed our tasting experience. The price seemed fairly steep and I was slightly disspointed in the close up photos of the cake, but overall I was satisfied with this vendor.

Our cake was beautiful and delicous. We had two different flavors, almond creme and chambord chocolate raspberry. On our one year wedding anniversary we got a complimentary cake in the fashion of the top tier of our cake. Since no artificial additives are added to their cakes, it freezes horribly so to avoid dissapointment they give you a free cake on your 1year anniv. Sooooo Yummy!!

Phenomenal tasting cakes! We had a three tier cake with three different flavors and they were accomodating to our request. The only complaint I had was that when we went to taste the cake, there was only one person working and she was working with two different couples. I didn't feel like we had her full attention to ask questions and discuss flavors, layers, etc..

This is a very busy bakery and their customer service is a little lacking. However, it is very good cake! They don't have too much room for flexibility so don't expect a grand custom creation. We used a design they had and had them element one element in it, which they did just fine. Our guests raved about our cake and even went up for seconds. We had much more than we needed too, and it was boxed up by our caterer for enjoyment by our families every night for the rest of the week! I recommend them if you want a great tasting cake from the frosting down to the filling!

Loved our cakes. However, one detail we discussed was not included on the cake and Buttercream was not responsive in discussion the problem.

We have gotten the most compliments on our cake!! We had table cakes and 5 different flavors dispersed throughout the room. This encouraged people to get up and mingle. The cakes were beautiful and of course, yummy! We get one every year for our anniversary!

Although my cake tasted great, the expierience with this vendor was not that great.

The cake designs weren't that pretty.
They did not allow you to use food coloring in their frostings.
The service when my husband and I were doing our tasting was awful, very down the nose looks were given to both of us.

Had I not been tied to this vendor due to my catering booking, I would have likely selected another vendor.

I didn't want a huge wedding cake so we ordered a reasonable three tier cake, and a larger sheet cake to feed everyone. They didn't deliver the second cake, so we didn't have enough cake for everyone. As a result, I DIDN'T GET A PIECE OF MY OWN WEDDING CAKE, NOR DID MY HUSBAND. When we called to complain about this, they didn't apologize, didn't refund our money nothing, didn't return calls etc. They called us crazy and accused the venue of stealing it. (Nevermind that we had our reception at the home of a dear family friend) It was just awful. To make matters worse the bakery is near my home and I drive by there all the time and to this day it just makes me sick.

I went out of my way to be a good customer with all of our vendors, we paid promptly, didn't make outrageous demands and it just kills me that we were treated this way by Buttercream. To be fair, I did steal a bite of cake off of my aunt's plate and it was delicious, and the cake was gorgeous.

We did a dessert buffet instead of the traditional wedding cake. Buttercream was fantastic in helping us choose the correct products and giving us full reign and flexibility to do what we preferred. The taste test alone was reason to go with them! They know how to make an impressively good cake!

It has been a while since I was married but I remember my cake and experience to be perfect with them. They even gave us a free 1-year anniversary cake. I recommend them to everyone I know.

We had to use Buttercream with our venue. It was included with our catering package, so we didn't really think about the pricing at all, we just use them. When we went for our tasting, they were very nice, talked us through everything and took notes on what we wanted. We asked about putting flowers on the cake, and they said no problem. We asked about the top layer being frozen for us to eat on our first anniversary, they said no problem. We thought after we left the tasting that it was a little weird they didn't answer our questions about the per slice charge, but we felt to sure of them, it wasn't a big deal. Fast forward to the wedding day. The cake arrived completely plain. No decoration at all. We actually cut up my toss bouquet to add some flowers to it. The cake itself was ok, but tasted like a Betty Crocker mix. The frosting was good, but the cake itself was crumbly and dry. THEN after 2 months in our freezer, the top layer of the cake had mold on it. THEN we finally got an itemized bill from Lancer and saw that the cake cost over $800. When I called to complain they promptly told me that they NEVER decorate their cakes, and the top layer is NEVER meant for freezing. I got a $25 gift certificate for my trouble. Though this didn't ruin my wedding, it was a complete waste of money and I felt like the catering company and Buttercream were pulling a fast one over everyone that used them.
