The cake was absolutely delicious! All of our guests continually commented on how great the cake tasted and it was everything we could've asked for!

I'm not a very big cake person, so when it came to finding my wedding cake it wasn't high on my list of priorities. I did my searching online, and when I saw Maxie B's my husband (who is from the area, I'm not) said we should definitely go with them. We went for the private cake tasting, which was well worth it. There was more cake than I ever could have imagined, and we both loved the cake with fresh strawberries! Shannon was fantastic to work with, she showed us many different ideas and helped us come up with exactly what I wanted the cake to look like. My husband was very disappointed I would not let him have the banana pudding cake, so when I contacted Shannon about making a groom's cake it was not a problem. I will have to say the grooms' cake was probably my husband's favorite part of the whole wedding (well maybe minus marrying me...). He is a watch fiend and it was made exactly to look like a Rolex, complete with amazing detailing. We loved working with Maxie B's!

Maxie B's has always been a favorite of mine for indulging on sweets. When we decided to get married, my husband and I knew we wanted a Maxie B's cake. Our wedding was a low key affair, out in a field ceremony and reception, so my idea was farm house cakes. We went with our favorite five favors that we tried at our tasting appointment, Hummingbird, Pineapple Coconut, Chocolate with Cream Cheese icing, German Chocolate( hubby's favorite), and Strawberry Butter-cream ( which is the one we cut for pictures). Shannon at Maxie B's worked with us to get the five cakes at a super reasonable price and is very attentive when emailing back and forth. My mom and I picked up the cakes on the morning of the wedding and they were beautiful, iced like normal, nothing decorative but beautiful to me. We got married on 9/5/14 and it was warm weather day so the icing did start to melt soon after the cakes were displayed but that didn't hurt the wonderful taste. Our guest raved about the varieties we had and took slices home since we ordered for 100 but only about 60 showed. My husband and I had cake for a week after the wedding and it stayed pretty fresh. I would highly recommend Maxie B's for any type of function that calls for cake. The quality and craftsmanship are worth the price. My husband and I plan to get at least a slice every year on our anniversary!

They were absolutely professional and created the cake I sent an image of. Shannon was on time and when my decorator did not have anything ready she offered to help my wedding planners! The cake was delicious and exactly what I ordered. Shannon is experienced and wonderful! HIGHLY RECOMMEND !

Maxie B's was a great vendor for wedding cake and dessert bar. They were very flexible and accommodating in helping us select or dessert menu. They offered more options than any other vendor that we had visited and were willing to create cake flavors to our liking. Thanks again for making our day special and unique to us!

This has been our favorite bakery since moving to Greensboro 4 years ago. Every birthday and special occasion is accompanied by some sort of Maxie B's creation. As soon as we began planning our wedding, we knew we had to have them provide the cake for that, too. Our wedding was in Wilmington, NC so we decided to have cupcakes and cookies instead of a traditional tiered wedding cake. Everything was packed up nicely and traveled very well. We had so many compliments from guests on everything. Even my Mother and Aunt, who have a wheat allergy, were able to enjoy dessert with their Cup 4 Cup gluten free cupcakes. These guys never disappoint - highly recommended!!

I worked with Shannon at Maxie B's. She was great to work with and was quick to respond to my emails. Maxie B's has the most incredible cakes. They are moist and rich in flavor. Shannon has great ideas for how to make your wedding cake look beautiful and still stay within your budget. I was so pleased with how my cake turned out. My guests loved it and we had very little cake left at the end of the night.

We were excited to use Maxie B's as our wedding cake vendor because my husband and I had gone there for Valentine's Day early on in our relationship. From the cake tasting to the wedding day, Shannon was incredibly wonderful to us. The bakery is stunning and fun to visit/do cake tasting at. They worked with me to make my vision fit within my budget. When I got to the wedding reception and saw my cake…I was so happy. It was more beautiful than I thought it would be! It was definitely a statement piece at our reception. And the quality of the cake…OH MY GOODNESS!!! There are some slightly embarrassing photos of how much I loved the cake. I wish that I would have eaten more than the few bites at the cake cutting because it was so delicious. Two other engaged couples who attended our wedding are now going to use Maxie B's for their wedding cake vendor too.

I could not have been happier with how both the wedding cakes and groom's cake came out. As a baker, I really wanted to have delicious cake that people remembered for the flavor, not just how it looked on the outside and it was perfect. People raved about the taste and even went back for seconds, so they could try on of the other flavors. It didn't only taste good though, but both the wedding cakes and groom's cake looked exactly the way I had drawn them. I would highly recommend Maxie B's for any special occasion. From start (cake tasting) to finish they were wonderful to work with!

Maxie B's was one of the best parts about wedding planning. From the cake tasting to the final product their service and attention to detail was perfection. Maxie B's did my wedding cake, the grooms cake and an additional sheet cake. Every single cake was dense, moist and so flavorful. The cake decorations exceeded my expectations and were absolutely stunning!

Just to give you an idea of how much I love Maxie B's, I live in Denver and will be ordering Birthday cakes from them every year (almond on almond, yum!).

Can not say enough good things about Maxie B's, you can not go wrong.

As soon as we saw that Maxie B's had a Banana Pudding Cake, we were sold! We didn't realize that you couldn't tier that cake, but they worked with us to find a solution that worked for our wedding and for our budget.

We ended up with 3 smaller cakes, rather than 1 large tiered cake. We went with Banana Pudding (YUM!), Lemon Almond and Chocolate with Cream Cheese Filling. All 3 cakes were delicious and they looked great.

Shannon was so easy to work with for our tasting, accommodated our limited time in town and was very responsive to my questions via email.

There are several decent bakeries in the Triad, but I would highly recommend Maxie B's. You're going to get excellent service and an excellent product. :)

Working with the Event Coordinator was such an easy and enjoyable process! I chose to do a non-traditional approach to a wedding cake - with a small two-tiered cake for my groom and I to cut, along with a southern spread of some of Maxie B's delicious cakes! The day of the wedding, when my matron of honor showed me a picture of the cake table, I was in awe.. And still am!

Maxie B's did a wonderful job on our cake. It was beautiful and we received a lot of compliments on how good it tasted. Shannon was great to work with even taking some time one evening to show us how to cut the cake since our venue would not cut it for us. Maxie B's is the best in town!
