City Pulse

Master baker? Dabbler in the culinary arts? No matter what your skill level, it’s now easier than ever to get your mitts on quality buttercream … and you don’t have to make it yourself. Cheryl’s — yes, the Cheryl’s of hand-frosted, individually wrapped cookie fame — just started selling their fabulously fresh buttercreams by the tub.

The tantalizing flavor options sure to inspire your inner baker include cinnamon, peppermint, mint, vanilla, fudge and caramel. And no, we won’t judge if you just want to grab a spoon and dig in.

To celebrate September 16, the most popular birthday (because why not?), and to showcase what these creams can do, Cheryl’s held a fantastical birthday bonanza right here in New York City at the Institute of Culinary Education. New students worked their magic to create delectable cupcakes and cakes and to prove just how versatile (and delicious) these creams can be.


If measuring, mixing and baking aren’t your thing, but you still have cravings for some sweet creativity in the kitchen, Cheryl’s has you covered for that, too.

Just in time for Halloween, you can order all-in-one kits complete with tubs of buttercream, unfrosted sugar or gingerbread cookies, and festive orange and black sprinkles for a decorating party with the kids. Or, add a bottle of wine and make it a girls’ night instead.

Visit to see all your tasty options and place an order. Or call them toll free at 1-800-443-8124.
