Taste just as good as it looks!

Martha is an artist! She also is so incredibly invested in her clients and helping them get exactly what they want for their big day. Being from out of town, she was incredibly flexible in working with us to allow us to get a tasting experience and to design the cake of our dreams.
On the day of we got endless comments about how incredibly beautiful and detailed our cake was. And the best part was that she worked with our florist to coordinate so that the designs would match perfectly with our flowers. Then when it came to the cake itself, the taste was to die for. The cake was so perfectly cooked and the flavors were perfectly balanced to give us the perfect taste of Maine. We loved Martha鈥檚 work and would happily recommend her to any couple who wants a masterpiece of a delicious cake as a showcase at their wedding!

For a truly wonderful and unique cake I highly recommend working with Martha at Hanami Cake Design. We were able to design a unique cake from the ground up including two great unique flavors. If you can imagine it, I am sure Hanami Cake Design can find a way to create the wedding cake of your dreams!

Martha is a master of her craft!

This review is super late but I had to make sure I did it. Martha is the most inventive, creative, and truly masterful baker I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She made the entire process as easy as could be and worked with our venue and florist on the final arrangements and decor for our cake. Her knowledge of flavor combinations - ones you never would think of... and I mean NEVER - and ability to match your tastes by answering a few simple questions is truly genius! Our tasting was so challenging because all of the samples she put together for us were so incredible that it was hard to make a decision. But then she told us we didn't have to necessarily! We ended up with a 3-tiered cake with 2 flavor combinations and fillings!! I could tell she truly loves what she does because she was genuinely excited about the cake she is going to bake for us. She is prompt, responsive, and willing to step outside of her wheelhouse and try things she hasn't done before - my wedding was on the same day as my husband's birthday so I asked, last minute if she would bake a birthday cake for my husband so that we could surprise him the night before. She was more than happy to accommodate and asked what kind of cake and theme he would like. My husband is a huge Marvel fan so I told her it would be awesome if she could make a cake with the Avengers and infinity stones. This is not something she had ever attempted before and she was honest about that (another attribute I appreciate about her) but she was willing to give it a go! The cake came out phenomenally and my husband was so thrilled when we surprised him. Now if I am going on about this additional cake, imagine how amazing our actual wedding cake was... It was perfect in every way!! Designed exactly as we'd discussed and the most delicious cake I've ever had!! Martha is not only a master of her craft but a genuinely wonderful person - just an absolute joy. So hire her. You will not be disappointed, you won't regret it, she's amazing!!
