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! :)

Carrie is amazing!!

Carrie is such a sweet lady. Working with her was so much fun! She's really reasonably priced - she could charge way more for her cakes, but she doesn't. She made the tasting process easy - shipped the flavors to us so we didn't have to drive all the way down to southern VA from Annapolis. We did two other cake tastings with other companies and hers was hands-down the best, AND most affordable. She sat down with me and helped me sort everything out, from flavors, to cake amount, to colors, and frosting vs, fondant. I designed the cake, and she recreated that design perfectly! Our cake was STUNNING. She also set up the cake flowers and toppers on-site and the result was gorgeous. She had the idea to have cookies as guest favors, and so she also brought and set out variety of beautifully decorated sugar cookies. Some had blue and purple galaxies on them and others had constellations (our theme was night sky). They were beautiful and delicious, and we got so many comments on them. Everyone who was on-site had something wonderful to say about her when I asked - I wish I'd been able to talk to her in person when she came by, but I was off getting ready. You cannot go wrong hiring Carrie for your event!

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!
