When marbled fondant is all the rage but you are strictly a buttercream girl, you figure out a way to make it work. The final result is everything I hoped for and more! 💗 It's a beautiful day at the @thefarmhouseevents with @brambleandbee @halfmoonlettering @selectstudios and @glitterandwhiskeyevents!

A dear girlfriend of mine is expecting her first baby and I was thrilled to make these cutie pie gluten-free chocolate cupcakes to celebrate her growing family. Love ya, @krucker2316! Wish I could have made it to the shower but I have no doubt that the girls spoiled you rotten!

Every wedding at @chandeliergrove brings a completely new vision and I love seeing this incredible space transform so beautifully. I couldn't help but feel so proud as we drove away that I had an opportunity to work a wedding with @maxitflowerdesign @josephwest and @jlowevents. I've long admire them as artists, business owners and true masters of their craft. They've managed to carve out their own brilliant niche in this big creative world and I'm over the moon that my work is in their company. Happy wedding day, Sam and Shane! All the feels for this one 💕 P.S. Just so that the universe didn't make all of my dreams come true at once... As I was about to snap a pic the lighting guy shined a spotlight directly on this gal and ruined all of my natural light. I'll just have to wait for @josephwest photos. Looks like I won this round universe. 👋

June Tasting Boxes now available and these flavors are my favorite yet! I'm a Texan girl through and through, but if I could travel anywhere I would spend my summer in Tuscany eating all of the beautiful meals that fill so many of my favorite Tuscan cookbooks. Until we can make it to Italy, I couldn't be happier to bring some of that magic to our June boxes! Here's a tip: pour a glass of vino and enjoy them al fresco! - Place your order by June 19th! (Link in profile) - JUNE FLAVORS $30 / box - Vanilla bean ricotta cake with homemade raspberry jam and raspberry Italian meringue buttercream filling - Vanilla bean sponge layers soaked in coffee liqueur, layered with mascarpone buttercream and sprinkled with a hefty dose of cocoa powder and dark chocolate shavings - Six thin layers of olive oil cake layered with apricot and cherry jam and honey buttercream - Almond cake layered with rosemary lemon curd, pine nut brittle and sweetened mascarpone buttercream

Another day, another batch of @alexandracooks bread. - If you've been waiting on an email from me I appreciate the patience! We are in the process of trying to open up a considerable amount of availability this fall and should know more in the next few days. Thanks again!

This cake is wrapped in paper-thin, gold-lined fondant strips and topped with an abundance of fruit and florals by @maxitflowerdesign. I love how the two styles work together so beautifully and @pppaaaiiiigggeee couldn't have captured it more perfectly.

May's tasting boxes are just starting to head out and I'm already excited for June. 💕 Here's a hint: they're inspired by that summer in Tuscany I've always dreamed of. Keep checking back for updates!

Even though my cake didn't make the feature today on @greylikes (can't win 'em all!) I'm still so excited to finally share more from this unbelievably stunning shoot! Everyone brought their A game and it was truly an honor to have my work alongside theirs. 💗 Photography | @pppaaaiiigggeee Venue | @tinyboxwoods Coordinating/Design |@spellevents Floral/Design | @maxitflowerdesign Cake | @buttercuphouston Calligraphy | @afineflourish Hair + Makeup | @blushworthytx Alice Chairs | @johannaterryevents Glassware + Furniture | @aztecusa Live Painting | @jamielewisartistry Wedding Dress | @whittingtonbridal Bridesmaid dresses + shoes + accessories | @bhldn Hairpieces | @thebotanistco Linens | @silkandwillow Rings | @susiesaltzman Chandelier | @decorandmorerentals Bride Model | @madison.o.miller Groom Model | @_tylerspell Bridesmaid Models | @sassyred_ @shelbybastin @jocelynjoines

Another great shot by @chillenlikeagillen from a recent wedding at @thecarriagehouseweddings! Thank you so much @ashleyallen15 for letting me be a small part of your big day! I loved, loved making these cakes. 💗 Flowers by @brambleandbee

I imagined stuffing these peanut butter cookie sandwiches with a torched marshmallow, dipping them in chocolate and sprinkling them with salted peanuts. Even though that would have been awesome I have to say that they were pretty amazing without all the fanciness. Oh, and they're gluten free 🙌.

Happy Monday! I decided to offer a last minute cake sale for Mother's Day if you'd like to treat mom to a little something special! - 8" dark chocolate single layer cake with scoops of homemade raspberry jam baked into it and topped with chocolate ganache, whipped cream, blackberries and blooms. 8" Lemon almond ricotta single layer cake with limoncello glaze and pretty blooms. - $30 each and will be the perfect way to celebrate! Email me at info@buttercuphouston.com to scoop one up! I'm only offering 6 of each so make sure you don't miss out!

There's nothing better than celebrating a beautiful mom and her new bundle of joy on the way. You're the best of the best @courtney_leigh_photo and I just love you to pieces. So glad I could make this cake for your shower and hope you enjoyed every second of your party! 😘

With every intention of stacking these layers I decided to be realistic and serve these chocolate cakes with scoops of raspberry jam baked into them in single layers topped with chocolate ganache, whipped cream and blackberries. It was a beautiful day in south Louisiana but I'm not a risk taker and I'm definitely not a fan of melting cakes. Plus, they looked absolutely adorable topped with flowers from @brambleandbee. 💕

I took probably 1,000 pictures at delivery but this is the only one that saved to my phone. 😩 Luckily it was a good one! Beautiful wedding today at @thecarriagehouseweddings with @brambleandbee!

Happy wedding day, @juliejvee! You are an absolute dream and I loved being a part of your day! So many of my favorite vendor pals pulled together this gorgeous day and I'll be able to sleep easy knowing that @mustardseedphotography is going to capture it all perfectly! And thank you for the blooms @maxitflowerdesign, I had so much fun adding them!

A beautiful floral arrangement by @fdellitdesigns to add height, a kraft runner with perfect calligraphy by @afineflourish and a variety of rustic desserts really highlight this cake with just the right amount of understated elegance. I always tell couples to consider their cake table when planning their day because a little bit of extra thought really goes a long way. And if you can, always have a giant chandelier twinkling overhead. ✨ Planning: @leanonme_events Cake: @buttercuphouston Venue: @beckendorfffarms Photography: @cottonweddings Linens: @houseofhough Glassware: @revisionistevents Calligraphy: @afineflourish Flowers: @fdellitdesigns

So excited that I can finally share this cake from a dream shoot with @leanonme_events at @beckendorfffarms! @cottonweddings were the genius behind the lens and I absolutely adore every detail! Just wait until my next post with the shot of the full table - it's so, so good and full of ways to dress up your dessert table. Head over to the Glamour and Grace blog for more images from this gorgeous shoot!

Tasting boxes heading out! They were such a success, I can hardly even believe it. If you missed out, not to worry! I'm already brainstorming for May's box and I'm leaning heavily towards southern classics like German chocolate, red velvet, carrot and apple spice for all you fall and winter couples! Thanks again for all the support! 🤗

I must have pinched myself the whole way home after leaving this shoot with @maxitflowerdesign and @spellevents at @tinyboxwoods. @pppaaaiiiigggeee is so amazing behind the lens and every single detail is just perfect. Thanks for including me, ladies! 💗

Today was a reaaaaally good mail day. I'm all set for the tasting boxes and can't wait to fill them with all those yummy slices! Last day to order is Friday! (Link in profile)

Just another reminder to snatch up this month's tasting box! See link in profile to send in a request! Flavors: 1. Dark chocolate cake with espresso mousse and milk chocolate chip Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 2. Meyer lemon and brown butter glazed olive oil cake with lemon curd, fresh blueberry and vanilla bean buttercream fillings 3. Fresh peach and maple cake with brown sugar blueberry jam, praline and whiskey Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 4. Earl grey cake with fresh strawberry preserve and lavender strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream fillings (Photo by @bricostello)

Ever wonder what those macaron 2-packs look like? Well, thanks to @bricostello I now have the most gorgeous picture ever to show them off. Tied up with silk ribbon and piled high on a platter, I can't imagine a more perfect favor to gift your guests.

Yesterday was a full day, for sure, but before I went to bed (passed out) a former bride sent over some pics from her daughter's first birthday party. Thank you so much @georgiadmorgan for letting me be a part of this special day for your cutie pie! I loved making these cakes and you did such a great job with those adorable toppers! They're just the sweetest! (Pictured are a champagne raspberry cake and egg-free vanilla raspberry smash cake)

It was all sunshine and water slides for Kick's fourth birthday yesterday! Loved making this cake and the mountain of cupcakes topped with @shipleydonuts donut holes for the celebration! While I was adding the donuts it very quickly turned into a, "one for you, one for me," situation and I was totally OK with it. 🍩🏄🌊

Loved dressing up this pretty cake with blooms from @brambleandbee. I'm also convinced that today had to have been the most beautiful day to get married ever. 💗

Tasting boxes now available! Through the link in my profile you can order a tasting box available for pickup on April 19th or 20th. I'm going to be really flexible with pickup times to accommodate as many people as I can. I've spent much of the last week editing these flavors and think that not only are they beautifully composed, but they will translate well to even the largest of crowds. FLAVORS: $30 / box 1. Dark chocolate cake with espresso mousse and milk chocolate chip Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 2. Meyer lemon and brown butter glazed olive oil cake with lemon curd, fresh blueberry and vanilla bean buttercream fillings 3. Fresh peach and maple cake with brown sugar blueberry jam, praline and whiskey Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 4. Earl grey cake with fresh strawberry preserve and lavender strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream fillings My guess is that they will get scooped up pretty fast and if everything goes well I might be moving in this direction for all future tastings! Cake boxes every month sound pretty good to me! Happy tasting! 📷 by @danafernandezphoto

Quick question... Would you be interested in an open tasting not exclusively limited to weddings? Here me out... Every time I post a tasting I get lots of requests to come over and try some cake. While I would LOVE to do this (seriously, how fun!) it just doesn't make much sense from a business point of view. With that said, would you be interested in stopping by for four or five pieces of some my favorite and most requested flavors? Cake pieces would be packaged for pickup and perfect for gifting, too! Think bridesmaids, groomsmen, teachers, clients, bffs and even your boyfriend who maybe needs a not-so-subtle nudge 😉. If you are a couple interested in using me for your wedding this would be a more affordable option to get a sense of the quality of my work and at a later date we could talk details. Win-win for everyone, right? I'm still working out the logistics, because right now it's really just an idea swirling in my head, but I'd love to hear your thoughts! Tag your friends, comment with flavor requests and let's get to planning! Oh, and sorry about the novel 🙈
