Take the cake

Those craving a unique and delicious cake will need to look a little further than Birmingham’s popular Love & Buttercream, 746 E. Maple, as owner Brooke Wilson is closing her specialty bakery. Open since 2010, first in Royal Oak and then in Birmingham, she announced that her lease is up on May 1. Despite surviving the unbelievable travails of the COVID-19 pandemic and fighting her way back to survivorship, the once-again thriving business is an all-consuming endeavor – and since birthing her bakery, she has had three children, making this perhaps the right time to move on. However, she has told people she isn’t permanently closing her heart, or the doors, to the bakery, and those who love her confections, from wedding cakes to cookies, may find Wilson opening a new incarnation in the future.
