" I LOVE LOVE LOVE Buttercup Cakes!! They have the best frosting of any cupcake bakery I've been to (and I've been to a lot, because I really love desserts). They have such cool and fresh flavors - and they are always delicious! Some are very unique, like hibiscus with chocolate and blueberry, and some are comforting regulars, like chocolate and peanut butter. They have a variety of minis and regular sized cupcakes - and I have yet to find one I don't like.
"If I could give 10 stars I would! We used Buttercup Cakes for our wedding cake and cupcakes and everything was beyond delicious. My cake has to be gluten and dairy free and they made it flawlessly, one of the only places in the area who was allergen-friendly. They even matched a design I wanted from Pinterest perfectly! The service and level of communication is beyond amazing and they truly care about their customers. We will be back again and again!"
" I often purchase several dozen mini cupcakes from Buttercup Cakes for my staff. Their cupcakes are consistently moist, flavorful, and delicious and the presentation of each cupcake always puts a smile on my employees' faces. Thanks Buttercup for being consistently awesome and for having gluten free, vegan, and gluten free+vegan options every time I come in. You rock! "
"The first time I went into Buttercup I bought 5 mini cupcakes to take home for a tasting. I took one bite of the earl grey and instantly eat all the remaining samples. I booked them that day.
"LOVE this place. Homemade and natural ingredients. Fun little store front. Delightful little bite-size cakes. Yummy frosting. :)"
"Well it must have been fate, for your cake was easily the best, and we felt the most comfortable in your shop. You made us feel like a person not a number, and we appreciate all your help. Planning a wedding from afar can have its obstacles. Dave, the groom whom is not really into cake, and was requesting a carrot cake for the wedding fell in love with the triple orange."
"I want to say THANK YOU! To the crew at Buttercup cakes. They saved the evening and brought replacement cupcakes after the entire cupcake stand full of cupcakes (250 minis) and wedding cake on top tragically fell.
"We love Buttercup! We've loved their cupcakes for a few years now, so when we had a rather lackluster cake tasting experience elsewhere in Santa Cruz, it made sense to us to drop by and see if they did weddings too.
