Love that the icing wasn't too sweet, but...

The texture and sweetness level of the cupcake icing was true perfection! My only issue was that they did not taste like their intended flavours. They looked the part, but tasted like they could have been plain vanilla icing if my eyes were closed. We had chococcino and hot chocolate. Neither... read more

Very nice of them to take my order for a party right before they went out of business. Then on the day of the party, I had arranged for them to deliver the cake so it was one less bit of running around I had to do. The real birthday surprise? No cake ever arrived. Charming.

Worst $65 I ever spent. I provided an exact picture of what I wanted for a birthday cake, including colours and a "Happy Birthday" greeting. Colours were wrong and there was no greeting (which I think is very critical in a Birthday cake). They didn't have any tools at the store to add a greeting and refused to provide any... More

We recently ordered a lemon cake with lemon curd filling. The curd was missing, it was regular buttercream. The cake itself was very good though. Slightly underdone in the centre but that made it quite moist. I highly enjoyed it.

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.

The cake that I ordered for my daughters first birthday came CRACKED. Their only solution was to either take the cake, bring it to another location on MY time to try and fix it (which would not look good anyway) or buy and exsisting one which did not have her name on it.. When we asked to put her name... More

I can definitely make better instant cupcakes at home. These ones were dry and bland, specifically the red velvet and vanilla cupcakes. The chocolate ones were okay, but for all of them, the buttercream was rather weak on flavor. Its weird, I once bought a couple maybe a couple years ago. we loved them. 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.

First of all the service was fantastic the girl that served us was so nice and happy. It was her birthday the day we went, and if I was working on my birthday I would have been mean to everyone but she was so flipping nice. The cupcakes were very tasty and they had a big variety of custom order... More
