They have wonderful home baked on premises cupcakes, cookies and several other treats. They make cakes to order, had a birthday that was delicious with a butter cream frosting

A brightly lited decorated corner location, we enjoyed a nice coffee and custom muffin in this cute shop. The cakes looked delicious too!

After reading all the great reviews, decided to try Buttercream. I was not disappointed! For birthdays or special occasions, I've started buying one cupcake for each person, I don't need a huge cake...certainly don't want leftovers. Very nice selection of flavors and they also have pie slices and cake slices. I was able to order something for everyone based on... More

We stopped by for something sweet after having lunch near by. The shop was clean and the sweets looked tasty. The woman behind the counter wasn't rude but wasn't overly nice which took away from the overall experience for me. I Settled on a cookie dough cupcake. The taste was good, but was on the small side. Would try again... More

We shared an amazing lemon bar and chocolate peanut butter bar, and sat outside and ate on a lovely day. The woman behind the counter was friendly and fun. Way too many calories but so very worth it! :)

I was recently in Downtown Apex and this was one of the stores open, so I of course had to check it out. It is on the corner and very inviting. It has tables and chairs inside with all the goodies in the cases or above it. The bakery has cakes, cupcakes, eclairs, cookies, macaroons, muffins, brownies and so much... More

Great fresh coffee in many styles and flavors, so far all have been a hit. It is hard to resist a desert when you walk into the shop, they all look so good. The ones I tested so far have been outstanding. Hard to just have one, maybe one of each.

This is a much needed cupcakery in Cheyenne. We ordered a dozen of the cupcakes. Raspberry Lemoncello, Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean. Very good cupcakes. The frosting was excellent. The only recommendation would be for the cake part to be a little larger to hold the cream. They are a little expensive, $3.50+ for a cupcake. But when there is only... More

Everything is fresh and yummy! Everyone is watching their weight these days but as most dietitians will tell you, you have to have a cheat day. This is the place to go. Need a special desert? This is the place to go. After dining in one of the restaurants on Salem, this is where people will walk to for desert.
