Fabulous Service and Cakes every time!

Every time I get a cake from BofB, everyone raves about it. They are wonderful cakes and distinct in their taste. They taste like they are truly from scratch - because of course, they are. My favorite is the carrot cake - we often order it for Easter! Also, the Strawberry Bavarian is light and... read more

I have had many cakes from this bakery. Most have been moist and delicious. On two occasions I was not thrilled. One of those occasions was my son's birthday cake. I ordered a Thomas the Tank Engine and Clarabel (two cakes "joined together"). I had one request - substitute chocolate frosting for any of the black parts of the trains.... More

I always get my special occasion cakes from here. I've tried other bakeries but they just can't compare! The cakes are delicious and beautifully decorated!

This bakery has good cakes. I have not had anything else from there other than birthday cakes so I do not know what their other products are like. Service is good though they can get busy at time (during holidays and local graduations).

Cash or check only. Great cakes. Have to order ahead. Easy people to work with if you have a design in mind. If you don't know what kind of design you want then just check out their web page for ideas in the gallery.

We used this bakery for our daughter's wedding. Yummy cakes. It is always busy when you visit. Your challenge will be what kind of cake do you really want....all of them taste good!

We have used Bakers of Buffington for a few years now and they are, in our opinion, the BEST bakers for cakes in the area. Staff are friendly and really help with cake designs. Prices are reasonable and the cakes are delicious.
