To a tea! Tiffany MacIsaac’s artfully decorated tea cookies play a starring role in this collaboration with calligraphist Poppy & Scooter for a shoot styled by Marigold & Grey.
Tiffany MacIsaac’s yearlong quest to open her first bakery, Buttercream Bakeshop, has finally come to fruition in Shaw—and the acclaimed pastry chef already has quite a following of loyalists.
One of DC’s favorite bakers, MacIsaac was formerly the executive pastry chef at the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, and most recently kept busy constructing custom wedding cakes, baking special-occasion sweets, and hosting pop-up events around DC. This is her first brick-and-mortar storefront, and already, it’s one of the most anticipated bakeries to arrive in the city this year.
Forgoing DC’s popular bakeshop theme, Buttercream is a lot more than cupcakes, MacIsaac says. Look for a mix of sweet and savory items, including fresh-made breads, red velvet beet cake, and an assortment of macarons and canalés.
There are plenty of interesting twists, too. “Expect a lot of new items that we’ve developed over the last two years... things like ‘funfetti’ sticky buns and cinnamon bun scones,” MacIsaac says.
As for her stunningly designed wedding and celebration cakes, not to worry: They are still available for custom order, too. Oh, how sweet it is! 1250 Ninth St. NW, 202-735-0102
