The best decision we made was selecting SC Buttercup

We met with several cake vendors and SC Buttercup was initially not on our list. After several cake tastings we thought we had decided on a vendor until they told us they could not create the design we envisioned for our cake. We were so close to picking another bakery we had met with previously since we felt we were out of options. After doing a little more online research, I came across SC Buttercup in Santa Cruz. We went in for a cake tasting and met with Molly, the pastry chef. We showed her pictures of what we envisioned for the cake and she knocked it out of the park. We had the most beautiful and unique cake that was so moist and delicious. We ordered mini cupcakes as well that complimented the gorgeous cake in the center of the table. Everyone loved them. We couldn't have been happier with our selection.

Great wedding cake!

We ordered our 4 tiered wedding cake from Buttercup Cakes (triple orange and german chocolate) and it was beautiful and delicious. The cake was so moist and tasted so fresh.
