Buttercream Bakeshop

Sunny and sophisticated, clean and modern, the pastry shop of dreams, Buttercream Bakeshop, anchors the Shaw neighborhood in the heart of the nation’s capital. From confections to cakes that punctuate life’s special occasions, acclaimed chef-owner Tiffany MacIsaac and her partner / lead decorator Alexandra Mudry-Till tap into a realm where fondest memories meet wildest fantasy. As a treat for the senses, guests are first met by the glorious smell wafting up from the bakery, and secondly the joyous display of picturesque, Instagram-worthy baked goods and cakes all gussied up for those eager to snag them before they’re gone. Delve into a chocolatey “Happy Camper” that riffs on a classic S’more, or marvel over an Oreo Gem, bejeweled with white chocolate and rosy marbling. Wedding cakes that capture the most serene vision-in-white, or the most exuberant burst of color, are the pièce de résistance. The beloved glazed Cinnascones and sublime sea salt and honey-sugar-laden “Queen B” breakfast buns could happily whisk your morning commute into a joyride. The diminutive pastel interior belies the bakeshop's mammoth industrial kitchen below, where the team has the capacity to produce mountains of small-batch sweets and towering two- to ten-tiered cakes. Buttercream's cheerful downtown setting is ideal for ritual visits, enhanced by a cup of local Compass Coffee. It’s a piece of cake to place your order online - from a raft of baked goods to a celebration or pre-design cake customized to your heart’s content. To Tiffany and her team, the wise Julia Child said it right: “A party without a cake is just a meeting!”
