The most incredible (and incredibly delicious) wedding cake!
We weren’t sure if we wanted a wedding cake, but that was before we had Max’s cake. Max designed the most perfect three-tier beauty for us, and it was one of my favorite parts of our wedding.
If you like cake, you will love Max’s cakes. If you don’t like cake, you will love Max’s cakes. I hadn’t seen my husband eat an entire piece of cake in the six years of our relationship, and he had three pieces at our cake tasting. That’s how good her cakes are. Our guests agreed, and several people told us they were embarrassed but they had multiple pieces of cake because it was just that good.
Not only were the flavors delicious (vanilla cake, blackberry preserves and custard filling, brown sugar buttercream icing, yum!), but the cake itself was beautiful. The tiers had different textures to keep it interesting, and Max expertly designed the flower arrangement that cascades so perfectly down the side. It was exactly what I imagined. If you want a delicious and showstopping cake all in one, hire Max!!Sent on 11/24/2019

Absolutely wonderful! Maxine was so easy to work with. She listened to what you wanted and made sure she met your expectations. She was on time, ready to go, and the almond cake with a chocolate ganache and butter cream frosting was delicious. She gave us peace of mind. She is dependent and reliable. Would highly recommend.Sent on 09/23/2019

I love Maxine!
Maxine is wonderful! She's a total professional and incredibly easy to work with. She bakes a truly delicious cake, and it's beautiful, too. She made everything seamless ... and she's also fun.Sent on 09/26/2019
Knowin Maxine for some time now, she's proven to be not only lovely to work with, but amazing at what he does. I was excited to work a wedding recently where she made a gorgeous, rustic cake for the guests. Not only did it fit the theme perfectly, it tasted even better. I fought myself to not go up for seconds, and thirds. It was fresh, an the berry center was delicious! Maxine is great to work with, very professional, excellent communication, and I can't wait to work together again!
I have had the pleasure of partnering with Maxine on many events...she is a consummate professional, always turning out delicious, beautiful cakes and sweets as pleasing to the eye as to the palate. Maxine is reliable, flexible and innovative...she has never disappointed any of my clients. I recommend her highly.
Ah, what can we say about Maxine's Bittersweet Bakers? Well it's anything but bittersweet! Their cakes are amazing works of art as well as being perfectly sweet, moist and delicious! Our couples are delighted with the service and true craftsmanship of Maxine's and we're happy to recommend them for their cakes/cupcakes and desserts! An area gem.
