What did you get and how did you like it?
I worked with Maxine for our wedding cake and a surprise groom's cake for my guy. They were both stunning and delicious!
Our wedding cake was a three tier honey/rosemary cake with a layer of blackberry preserve and vanilla Italian buttercream, frosted in vanilla Italian buttercream. Our guests were blown away! (If I didn't save the top tier I wouldn't have any left.) I showed her a photo of how I wanted the frosting to look and she executed flawlessly. She delivered herself and decorated with fresh flowers and a topper we provided.
The groom's cake was an add-on closer to the wedding. I asked her for a marble cake with layer of choc/hazelnut ganache (my fiance's original choice of flavor for our cake). We hike a lot, so she made the cake look like a campsite with tent and working fire pit! She delivered it in a box so he wouldn't see it and he was so happy!!!
Thank you Maxine!!!
Did they have any other options you liked?
The hardest part of working with Maxine will be figuring out which flavors to select -- everything we tried was amazing!
Were you happy? Would you do it again?
I'll definitely be working with Maxine again so book her quickly :)
