A little known fact about this awesome baker of delicious cakes are their pies. My favorite is baked cherry pie!

People rave about this company but twice I have had their cakes and although they are artfully done I found them to be a bit overcooked and lacking the flavor of a homemade cake and for the price they command I expect both.

Yet another year has gone by and again this bakery makes me a hero each year. The cake looks and tastes great every time. I am so glad we have this gem in our town. Thank you again for your outstanding products.

I have had the pleasure of tasting 3 of Bakers of Buffington special cakes at Graduation parties in the last 2 weeks. I can't speak too highly of the quality of the cake, icing and design. Brilliant for any special occasion.

I have yet to find another bakery that has better cake, their chocolate with butter cream icing is amazing.

For at the past 10 years, any time we have a special occasion we will order a cake from Bakers of Huffington. Lately, since going gluten-free, we have them make a gluten-free birthday cake and it's very good, although naturally a bit drier than regular cake. I love it though! They will decorate your cake any way you like. Either... More

Got a carrot cake for a birthday celebration on short notice. It was beautiful and delicious. Bakers of Buffington never fail to deliver fantastic cakes.

The pastry taste like butter flavored Crisco is used over butter. The folks are pleasant and it's nice to patron the local shop, but a little more attention to ingredients would go a long way.

I have used Bakers of Buffington several times and at best their baked goods are average. The store is entirely unappealing and very dated with minimal baked goods available to buy. With really excellent baked goods available in local grocery stores, it is amazing that this bakery does not offer more creative selections.
