About

A fantastical custom cake studio in Santa Monica, The Butter End Cakery pairs artists and foodies to create the most delicious and memorable end to a wedding.

Using only cage-free eggs, organic milk and produce, hormone-free butter and the finest flavorings and chocolates available, we ensure that our cakes will make even the most discriminating foodie want seconds. The good taste isn't just on the inside....We cover our cakes exclusively with rolled chocolate...not fondant! This means that guests won't eat around the cover...they'll want more of it!

Beyond the uncompromising quality, our cakes are each customized to the event and the personalities of the bride and groom. From whimsical grooms cakes to elegant, classical wedding cakes, Kimberly Bailey puts her artist's hands to work in creating a masterpiece.

    Loved our cake!

    Working with The Butter End was so seamless and they had the most delicious flavors. Our guests were blown away with the banana chocolate chip and carrot cake! They also took the time to listen to what we were looking for from a design perspective and our cake turned out to be one of a kind and perfect for our big day. I highly recommend!

I have had the pleasure of bringing clients to meet Kimberly Bailey and The Butter End Cakery team for a few years now and my clients have never once been disappointed. Kimberly's enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile is legendary. And The Butter End Cakery consistently delivers perfect cakes!

It doesn't get better than The Butter End! Kim and her team are the BEST! It's quite often with wedding cakes that you have to sacrifice flavor for decoration - or visa versa. NOT with Kim and her team at the Butter End. This is the best of both worlds! They're also kind, wonderful people! That's important with such a specific and for the most part, required part of your wedding. We love officiating when they do desert!
