Stunning cakes with a wide variety of flavors, and outstanding service!

I got married October 1, 2022 and am so grateful that I was able to work with Carrie from Buttercream Dreams to create a beautiful and delicious cake for my day! Carrie was amazing to work with throughout the entire planning time and was responsive and open to my thoughts and questions. She was able to help combine several ideas I had found online into exactly what I was envisioning, and had SO many traditional and unique flavors to pick from. I was planning my wedding from out of state, and Carrie was even able to ship us some of her most popular cake options, with frosting, for us to do our tasting without having to drive all the way to meet with her! The flavors we ended up picking were absolutely perfect (we got to have 2 flavors, for no extra charge), and all of our guests loved the options. Carrie is a wonderful, local VA vendor who offers great prices and even better service! You can't go wrong working with her. Thank you again, Carrie, for helping to make our day extra special and tasty! :)

Absolutely Delicious!

We ordered our wedding cake, cupcakes, and a surprise birthday cake for my now husband through Buttercream Dreams and everything was perfect! Our tasting was by far, the most fun part of the entire wedding planning process and we had lots of favorite flavor combinations, it was difficult to narrow down choices but Carrie helped with that as well. We ended up going with a dark chocolate cutting cake with peanut butter buttercream frosting for our wedding cake, snickerdoodle cupcakes (which our guests devoured), dark chocolate cupcakes, and almond cupcakes with almond buttercream frosting. Everything was delicious and Carrie was so helpful with advice on the color of our cake (which was a rich, emerald green) and helping me surprise my now husband with his birthday cake which he loved and was thrilled to have his own cake. She worked great with our other vendors and we found her very reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend her for any baked goods in any future events.

THANK YOU SO MUCH CARRIE!!! Carrie made us a gorgeous lemon cake with strawberry filling and then 3 different types of cupcakes! Snickerdoodle, pink champagne, and dark chocolate mocha! The guests loved it and so did we. They were all so delicious! Not only that but the cake was beautiful, absolutely stunning. The whole dessert table was set up so nicely. Thank you so much!!

I can't say enough great things about Carrie. Any time I go to her with pictures or crazy ideas she always over exceeds my expectations. Pretty cakes don't always taste the best, but you can guarentee that cakes from Buttercream Dreams will not only be gorgeous and well made, but they will taste INCREDIBLE. If you're looking for a wedding cake (or cupcakes!), grooms cake, or even cake for a birthday party or other event-you definitely need to chat with Carrie!

She always gives more than 100 %.So Fortunate to have Carrie in our Wedding Industry.
