Gorgeous & delicious!

Kimberly, Jess, and the entire Butter End team were so wonderful to work with and they exceeded all expectations! Our cake was as gorgeous as it was delicious and we received so many compliments! The Cherry Almond Chocolate cake was such a hit!

Obsessed With My Cake

Forget the bride, a stunning cake from The Butter End was the real showstopper! They exceeded all expectations with the design and most importantly it was delicious! The most difficult part about the process was only being able to pick two flavors.

Beautiful custom designed wedding cake that was absolutely delicious!

We learned about The Butter End from our florist, Jackie from Lotus & Lily, for our wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu who highly recommended The Butter End because Kimberly Bailey’s (the owner) artistic designs and being known for her delicious and moist cakes.

We scheduled a private tasting with The Butter End’s Studio Manager (Malinda Lenzo who is absolutely amazing, responsive, and so accommodating) and went to Kimberly’s bakery to test out a few sample cakes over a few glasses of champagne. It was a fun experience and the cakes were absolutely delicious, buttery, and moist. We ended up going with a 3 tier cake with two tiers of vanilla bean with vanilla buttercream and one tier of carrot cake with walnuts and cream cheese frosting. It was delicious at their bakery / studio and just as delicious and beautiful at our wedding!

We provided Kimberly with an image of a cake we fell in love with and she customized our cake to replicate it with her amazing design capabilities, but with her own spin / flare.

I highly recommend The Butter End if you are looking for a beautiful and delicious cake to impress and delight your guests at your wedding! Thanks Kimberly and Malinda!

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!
