  • Working with The Butter End was so seamless and they had the most delicious flavors. Our guests were blown away with the banana chocolate chip and carrot cake! They also took the time to listen to what we were looking for from a design perspective and our cake turned out to be one of a kind and perfect for our big day. I highly recommend!

  • The Butter End made the cake for my wedding which took place on Sunday, July 30. I had a certain vision as well as colors for my wedding. Kimberly exceeded my expectations with the perfect flower "watercolor" cake with a second layer in gold and a third in white. It was especially beautiful decorated with fresh flowers (see photos) as well as delicious. I highly recommend the Butter End for your special event.

  • From the moment we sat down with Kimberly for a cake tasting for our wedding, we had a great connection. She was incredibly friendly and open and excited to work with us. She even captured the attention of our 10 yr old, sharing her drawing utensils and including her in every step of the process. The cakes all tasted AMAZING so it was really hard to pick what we wanted to go with from a flavor perspective. Ultimately we settled on Chocolate Almond Cherry along with the Almond for the cake and then we supplemented with mini-cupcakes in a bunch of flavors. Everyone RAVED about the cake and the cupcakes. The father of the groom even declared it was the best cake he ever had, and he is not prone to hyperbole, not to mention incredibly hard to please. One big reason we went with this bakery, is the incredible hand-made custom designs that are available. Kimberly made us the most beautiful sugar flowers creating a simple, but elegant wedding cake. Once we chose to go with Butter End C... Read more

  • Kimberly & her team are awesome. The cake she created was not only gorgeous but absolutely scrumptious! She also made a small gluten-free version for our guests with dietary restrictions. It was easy to work with her/team. The tasting process was fun. I would highly recommend her for a wedding or any special event.

  • Sarah and Kimberly are two of the most of amazing designers and cake sculpturers ever! They recreated the millennium falcon cake for my groom. It was epic! The cake looked so real my husband thought it was just a model. When he realized it was his cake, his jaw dropped. Great job and definitely bravo ladies! Our guest fell in love with the design as well as how moist and and tasty the cake was. Cake tasting was wonderful and wishing them only the best in the near future. My hat is off for you gals. Applause to your amazing creations!

  • I wanted a naked cake for our wedding - not to be trendy, but because I actually don't like frosting. But I wanted the cake to still be fun and unique. I met with numerous cake places that told me this was not possible. Upon meeting with The Butter End (thanks to a recommendation), they listened to what I wanted and said it could be done with ease! They also gave me some ideas of things that I could do to have my perfect wedding cake and they were spot on! I ended up with a topsy-turvy naked wedding cake that was not only stunning, but was everything that I wanted - it was classic yet cheeky. They also worked effortlessly with my florist in putting the final details on my cake. Honestly, after meeting with them, I breathed a sigh of relief and when I saw the masterpiece at our wedding, I couldn't have been happier! Thank you to The Butter End team!

  • I can't say enough good things about Kimberly and her amazing cakes! First of all, the whole team at The Butter End is extremely accommodating and helpful, and they're up to every challenge. We chose to set up a tasting with The Butter End after reading about their signature flavor - chocolate almond cherry. It certainly didn't disappoint!! The cakes are so much more than your typical sponge wedding cake.... They are layered with rich flavors and creamy textures and the designs!?!? Over the top!!!!!! Our cake was a 6-tier masterpiece that I insisted upon "hanging" from a juliet balcony. It had a cascading pattern that resembled the beadwork on my dress, accented by 3 tiers of fresh flowers. Guests were WOWed by the cake instantly and once it was cut, they couldn't get enough!! Kimberly is a master at her craft and well worth every penny!

  • Our wedding cake from The Butter End was absolutely breathtaking, and so yummy! It was just perfect for our summer wedding at the Malibu West Beach Club. We had went to several bakeries prior to inquiring with them, and none were even close in comparison to the quality and taste we experienced at the Butter End. Not only do their cakes taste fantastic, but their details, art, and designs are filled with talent. We worked with Kimberly and Sara on designing our perfect cake, and were absolutely amazed with the look and taste of it on our wedding day. Thank you for making our day so special, and we will definitely be coming back for future events!

  • "Dry cake is dumb." Kimberly's motto is basically what she preaches when she makes her cakes. Loved our three-tier wedding cake from The Butter End. One of my bridesmaids and I did our cake tasting and Kimberly was there to help us narrow down the flavors and essentially draft the look of the cake. I was looking for cake makers that do hand-painted wedding cakes well and our wedding coordinator recommended The Butter End. Needless to say, she did not steer us in the wrong direction! Kimberly effortlessly drew our cake and ensured that the design fit our budget. After the tasting, I left my then fiance know about how awesome The Butter End was. Since he couldn't make it to the tasting, Sarah of The Butter End happily prepared tasting boxes for me to pick up the following week. Fiance approved, we signed the contract, and our guests were raving about the cake. Success all around!

  • We had The Butter End create a 2 flavored vegan cake for our wedding in September and they did a fabulous job. The cake tasting was one of the first wedding "to-dos" that my husband and I did and it was so fun! We tasted 2 flavors and ended up going with vanilla and banana for our cake, which may sound a little odd but it was amazing! We have a french bulldog who is our baby so we selected to have him on our cake and it turned out adorable. Everyone, especially pet lovers were commenting on how much they loved that little detail. Because we were having an outdoor wedding in hot heat, a couple weeks before the wedding we were recommended to have part of the interior of our cake faux so that the layers would not melt into each other. I was unsure about this at first, but you could not tell on bit on the day of and there was still plenty of cake that was real as well as sheet cake ready to serve. The only bummer was that they only ended up serving our vanilla cake, not banana, but that wa... Read more

  • We had the BEST WEDDING CAKE and grooms cake ever from The Butter End at our wedding. Our guests still are talking about it and our wedding was 9/13/14. The cake tastes out of this world because they only use fresh and wonderful ingredients. This shows in their finished product, no gritty or sugary frosting here. Just pure awesomeness.! We met with them and had a tasting that was just fabulous. We had tasted their cakes at a baby shower and knew we wanted to try their wedding cake favors but the tasting still blew our minds. So yummy! The Butter End cake tasting is like no other because their cake is like no other. You will know in one bite that they are your choice. Not only is the taste out of this world but they can do anything you want for design. They are so talented, creative, flexible, positive, and helpful which is everything you want when it comes to your wedding cake. Our wedding cake was so gorgeous with tons of fresh flowers and intricate detail on each layer, even thoug... Read more

  • The gals at The Butter End are just wonderful!! Three weeks before my wedding I was forced to find a new cake vendor! Being from out of town I was completely unfamiliar with my options, but my wedding coordinator recommended I call Kim, and I am so glad I did! If you visit her website you will without a doubt be blown away by the talent showcased. Once you talk to her or the other gals on the phone you can hear their enthusiasm, and it is evident they love what they do, and they’re so good at it! I traveled down to Santa Monica to pick up a few cake tasting boxes, and fell in love even more with their talent and friendliness. The day of the wedding, the cake was a stunning focal point in the Rotunda at Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, and my guests raved about the delicious and not so typical wedding cake they were enjoying! The bakery has a fun saying, “Dry cake is dumb”… You just won’t get it until you have tried their cake! I can’t wait to use Kim and her team again in th... Read more

  • What a beautiful end product! The Butter End has an amazing reputation. When we were planning our wedding in LA, we knew we wanted to have them design our cake. We set up an appointment and went and did a tasting. We dealt with Sara via phone/email and she was delightful. They are tucked away in a little shop that is hard to see from the main avenue, but once inside their shop its such a fun experience. They had a some amazing flavor to choose from. The tasting was very professional and it was so great to see some of the cakes they had on display. After selecting our cake flavor, we then dealt with the cake artist (believe it was Kimberly). While she turned out an amazing product (see yelp review for photo of our cake), she was not the most pleasant person to deal with while discussing the design of our wedding cake (seemed aloof, unexcited, and haughty... weirdly kept mentioning how lucky we were to have booked them) . Regardless, the finished product was incredible and th... Read more
