The best experience!
Our cake was SO INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS! Maxine was such a joy to work with- she offers the most amazing and interesting flavors to choose from, and at our tasting we had a hard time deciding which combo was better! We ended up choosing an Almond Cake with Hazelnut Ganache that had our guests talking all night. Maxine graciously created this 3 tier masterpiece as a base for sugared flowers that a dear family friend made and placed on the cake after it was delivered to our venue. Her flexibility and willingness to add this personal touch to our wedding cake was deeply appreciated, and the result was a gorgeous collaboration that we are couldn't be happier with. She even made us a separate small cake to freeze for our anniversary so that we wouldn't have to worry about setting our top tier aside! Thank you, Maxine!Sent on 07/26/2019

Maxine was such a pleasure to work with! She provided us with our wedding cake which was simple and beautiful, exactly what we wanted! The cake was absolutely delicious! We went with a rosemary cake with vanilla buttercream, with a raspberry filing! It was so good, our guest loved the unique flavor!Sent on 09/13/2019

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.
