2022 Cake

Editors’ Choice

Buttermilk Baking Company, Newburyport

From classy to comical to downright raunchy, if you can imagine it, Ashley Bush and her team of “Bakers of Badassery” can create it. Using all-natural ingredients, these babies are handcrafted right down to the house-made vanilla extract (which is also available by the bottle to amp up your own creations). We love the strawberry frosting—made with fresh berries, natch—but the peanut butter fluff cake is a dream for every kid or kid at heart. Many flavors can be made gluten-free. Be sure to call way ahead for busy times of year—these masterpieces take time to create. 9 Liberty St., Newburyport, 978-499-8278,
