Buttercream is an awesome store to visit in downtown core. Their cupcake are sublime. I have eaten there twice and both the times I have had a great experience. There is a great variety, monthly specials and also a range of cakes. I also liked the staff, they are polite and courteous.

Then I bought another half dozen... More

I happened to be on 17th and stopped by to try some mini-cupcakes. They were great! I'll be trying the full sized ones next time, they had fillings.

The cupcakes were very tasty and they had a big variety of custom order... More
