    Wonderful Wedding Cake and Cupcakes

    I cannot believe how delicious the cupcakes and cake for our wedding were. They were by far the best cupcakes I have ever had and they are also gorgeously done to top it off. Carrie was a pleasure to work with and was attentive and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. I am so beyond pleased with my experience with her.

    Spectacular cake and service

    On Memorial Day, May 30, 2022, my father-in-law turned 100. He is a World War II veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor. We had a very special birthday party for him and as such, we needed a very special cake. We are new to the area so I really had no idea where to start looking for a cake maker so I turned to the internet. I don't know if it was luck or divine provenance, but I was led to Carrie at Buttercream Dreams. I explained the event to her and how I wanted the cake decorated. I wanted his WW II medals included, as well as a cross because my father-in-law became a Presbyterian minister after the war. I left the rest in Carrie's very, very capable hands. Apart from being delicious, the design Carrie came up with was nothing short of a masterpiece; a true work of art. The cake was delicious as well as gorgeous. Carrie was a delight to work with, very pleasant, and professional, and she even delivered the cake personally. Who could ask for more? I am beyond words for how much we loved the cake and how appreciative we are of Carrie's talents. I now know exactly where to go next time I need a cake for not only a super special occasion but for any occasion. Thank you so much, Carrie!

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!
