Buttercream Bakeshop


Scratch-baked cakes, cookies and confections beyond your wildest dreams.  Whether it’s a baby shower, birthday cake for someone age 1 or 100, or a spectacular wedding, nothing will cap off the occasion as sweetly as a cake or pastry from Buttercream Bakeshop.

Born and raised on Maui, Hawaii Tiffany moved to New York City at the age of 18. Her love affair with food began almost immediately. She attended the culinary arts program at the Institute of Culinary Education and went on to work as a pastry assistant at Union Square Café and Ilo Restaurant in the Bryant Park Hotel. She was later awarded the title of pastry chef at Michelin star restaurants CRU followed by another Michelin starred property, Allen and Delancey. In 2009, Tiffany and her husband, Chef Kyle Bailey, moved to DC to open Birch & Barley, which not only received 3 stars from The Washington Post but also gave her the platform to be awarded the honor of Best Pastry Chef by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington in 2010. Owning a shop known for quality, excellence and small batch baking has been a career-long dream for Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac. A place where imagination and technique combine to create desserts that are delicious and inspired. As luck would have it, Tiffany met Alexandra Mudry-Till, an immensely talented cake decorator and macaron magician, with the same commitment to quality.  But they needed to fill one more important piece of the puzzle.  Enter GM Colleen Gillespie, a lover of exceptional customer service and sweets.  Tiffany decided that she had the perfect team to make the dream a reality.
