Ordered these delicious cupcakes for a Birthday delivery two years in a row and they messed up both orders each year..... I would love to support the Butter Cream Cupcakery- their cakes are delicious! However, their lack of quality customer service and adequate delivery just isn't acceptable. This year, I spoke to them on the phone 4 times and they... More

Great service and good cupcakes. Small place with limited menu. They have special cupcakes daily in addition to normal menu.

The main shop is in a strip mall at College and Horsetooth but there is a store up in Old Town and you can find the cupcakes at other locations (including Morgan's Grind at the CSU library). Each day they have a special cupcake flavor that varies (jelly doughnut, salted caramel, peanut butter, etc) along with a set of regular... More

My daughter belongs to their "club", earning free cupcakes with the option to save up for a free dozen. If you like buttercream that doesn't heavily feature powdered sugar, this is the place for you. My favorite? Salted Caramel.

We found this place purely by accident. Fantastic cupcakes. The red velvet were perfection. The golden Oreo and chocolate covered strawberry were also awesome. The lady at the counter was very nice and helpful with questions about the different flavors.

We tried the above trio and were not disappointed. The cake part was moist and the of course the flavored buttercream topping was decadent. Perhaps negative reviews are due to a different baker but we seemed to get someone who knows how to bake cupcakes.

We're new in town and were so excited to find a cupcake place so close to where we are staying. Terribly horribly dry cakes. They really should be ashamed that they're selling such awful product. On a positive note, their frosting is good and quite flavorful. Nevertheless, gallons of tasty frosting can't cover up dry crumbly cupcakes. We were going... More

When my family and I were walking around we were pretty excited when we stumbled upon this cupcake shop! We ordered one of Each kind of Cupcake to go. The girl working was very nice and Friendly! The cupcakes looked cute, but very over priced. When we got the cupcakes home to try they weren't good at all. The cake... More

If you want good cupcakes in a variety of flavors, this is your place. They have 2 locations in Fort Collins. They serve gluten Free on Thursdays only. Get in early to get some, because when they run out, there is no more GF offerings, and you will be disappointed. All other treats are readily available. Great staff, friendly....
