About

Buttercream is dedicated to the FLAVOR and BEAUTY of EVERYTHING we create.

At Buttercream, flavor and texture are just as important as design. Our philosophy is that a wedding cake is first and foremost a dessert, meant to be delicious and celebrated. In a time when reality television popularizes the use of rolled frostings, we pride ourselves on not using them as a decoration. Generally, rolled frostings are peeled off and discarded when eating cake; because of this, we challenge ourselves to find new ways of applying chocolate and edible color to the exterior of our cakes, thus giving the client an artistic creation that is not just for show.

We offer something that is 100% unique: We strive to keep our product all natural and therefore refrain from using preservatives, lard, or shortening. We start with cake that is baked from scratch and layer it with our signature fillings, including fresh-cut fruit. We use a light, smooth mousse made from heavy cream and white chocolate for our frosting and employ specially-honed techniques to give our cakes a smooth exterior with rounded edges, thus creating the desired look of rolled frosting while maintaining the integrity of the cake as a whole. Every decoration we then make is not only edible, but also eatable; our beautiful designs compliment the flavor of each cake.

Buttercream is a leading cake company in Minnesota, creating innovative works of art without using rolled or even traditional buttercream frostings. We are setting a new standard for wedding cakes. Our cakes not only look amazing… they taste even better!

    great cake

    We had to use buttercream for our wedding cake since that is who our caterer used, and they did a great job. The cake was delicious, our guests ate every last piece. The delivery person put on our fresh flowers from the florist and it looked beautiful. They even called me about 10 days before to go through and confirm everything with our order. I was very pleased with the service and quality. Their prices were very reasonable as well.

    The Best Cake

    This is the most delicious wedding cake you will find.

    We compared many, many bakeries at a range of price points and Buttercream was the clear winner in both flavor and value. Marisa responded to my emails promptly and was super-helpful in designing our beautiful cake. Delivery to our venue was seamless and low-stress. Buttercream worked with our wedding coordinator to ensure we had refrigerated storage on-site to keep the buttery frosting at a safe temperature until the reception. Highly recommended!!

    Delicious!

    We had a great experience with Buttercream! Our wedding cake was delicious (we got the lemon strawberry flavor) and we got several compliments on it. We also ordered a huge variety of their mini desserts for a dessert buffet, and everything was SO good. Our absolute favorite: the classic brownie cubes. I did not know a brownie cube could be so decadent and delicious, but they were incredible. We would definitely recommend getting them! Last thing-- Buttercream was flexible when we had to reschedule our wedding and downsize our cake due to Covid, and we really appreciated that.
