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!
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.
Highly recommend!! My wedding cake was perfect not to mention delicious!!
Thanks Maxie B's for your great service. My cake looked perfect and everyone enjoyed the flavors.
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‚Ä¶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‚Ä¶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.
Maxie B's went above and beyond my expectations! Both the wedding cake and the grooms cake were spectacular!!! They took the images I gave them and not only made them a reality, but made them even prettier!!! They tasted just as amazing as they looked : ) Everyone was raving that it was the best cake they had ever had!! Thank you guys soooo much!!!
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!
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...
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!
As always Maxie B's delivered above and beyond! From the initial meeting to taste & choose our flavors to the finished product- they were wonderful to work with...I wanted to do something simple and easy rather than an elaborate wedding cake, so we decided on mini cupcakes with a topper cake for cutting. We sampled over eight flavors before deciding on five kinds of cupcakes. Maxie B's provided the cupcake stand free of charge & had the cupcakes ready on the Friday morning of our destination weekend- so we could pickup and transport everything that day. Of course all the guests raved over the delicious cupcakes!!!
You cannot go wrong with getting your cake made by Maxie B's!!!! Shannon was great to work with and so easy going! She was really supportive and had great idea's; the cake tasting wasn't too bad either! We had three smaller cakes made, which kept costs really reasonable, and all of our guests couldn't get over how great they tasted! We had SO many compliments about the German chocolate and carrot cake (which is really to die for)! I have requests to bring more of her cakes back to family when I go home for a visit soon!
Maxie B's did an amazing job with our wedding cake! They are our favorite bakery and we had 5 different flavors of cake for the wedding. All of our favorites. The cake was beautiful and exactly as we had pictured it.
We had heard wonderful things about Maxie B's FOREVER! Being an avid lover of cake and desert, my (now) husband and I were over the moon when we learned we had WON the wedding cake of our dreams from the esteemed Maxie B's Bakery.
I can't shout their names from the rooftops loud enough.
The staff made us feel like family, which is so endearing and important when you are a stressed out bride and the flavor(s) of your wedding cake seem among the most important decision(s) you could ever make in your life.
We tried almost ALL the flavor options they have to offer (and there are TONS). We received guidance on the best flavor options for our wedding (i.e. cake shape and availability of freshly available ingredients for our November wedding).
We settled on 4 flavors (we had a HUGE cake) and Shannon, the B's wedding coordinator checked back with us several times to make sure that
we were happy with our decision. Their correspondence and happiness to work with us really set them apart from other bakeries I have worked with in the past.
On the day of the wedding my heart skipped a beat when I saw the most beautiful cake in the whole world displayed for all to see. Not to mention, the most delicious! Our guests were raving about the tastiness of the buttercream icing and fresh strawberries, apples, etc that were beautifully baked into the "artwork" that sat upon the cake display.
I am not writing this review because I won a wedding cake from Maxie B's. I am writing this review because my family will continue to be a part of their family for years to come.
I take my parents there for coffee and pastries when they are in town, my husband's next birthday cake will be Maxie B baked and iced.
Maxie B's is more than a bakery, it is a beautiful and delicious nook of Greensboro pride.
We feel as if we are part of the team and would recommend them for ANY event, big or small.
We chose to pick a small two tiered cake with cupcakes for our wedding. We loved that we were able to choose different flavors for the cupcakes for more variety for our guests. We loved the simple grape design to go along with our vineyard wedding. All the guests loved the cake and it was super moist. Love Maxie B's!
You would have to look long and hard to find a bakery better than Maxie B's. They have an amazing cake selection, and every flavor is absolutely amazing! We had 9 flavors of cake at our wedding and our guests are STILL going on about how much they enjoyed each and every one. Maxie B's will absolutely be my cake head quarters for all special events in our future!
I chose Maxie Bs because I absolutely love their cake. They serve the most rich indulgent cake I've ever had. Shannon the wedding consultant there was extremely sweet, professional and helpful; she made the experience easy and fast. My cake was simple and beautiful just like I wanted. I visit the shop maybe once a week for my sugar fix.
