Looks great, tastes even better posted 4/18/2014 (modified 4/19/2014)

My cake was 5 layers with all different flavors. My cake was a statement and focal point with custom design that matched the gold, ornate beading on my wedding dress. The cake looked incredible and when my groom and I cut into it and took a bite we both said "this is delicious!!"

Love! posted 4/2/2014 (modified 4/3/2014)

I loved my cake and my groomsman cake! The price was right, and she was very professional. She communicated well and is a perfectionist (in a good way)! All details were great and cake was soooo yummy!

Wedding Cake posted 11/30/2013 (modified 12/1/2013)

We shopped around and tasted the cakes at some of the more expensive bakeries, and found that nothing compared to the taste of Hilde's almond cake. We had cake for 250 people. All of our guests talked about not just how beautiful and elegant our cake was, but about how delicious it was too. Even a week later, when my husband and I actually sat down to enjoy our first full slice, straight out of the freezer, the cake was moist and delicious.
Hilde was wonderful to work with. She really listened and made wonderful suggestions. The day of the wedding, everything went perfectly, and our cake was even better than I imagined.

Perfect All-Around! posted 7/10/2013

Hilde did both my bride's and groom's cake for my wedding, and WOW were they not only the most gorgeous cakes I've ever seen but they also were the most delicious--very spongy cake and the perfect amount of buttercream icing that doesn't leave you feeling over-sugared. Since my husband and I of course only got tasting bites at the actual wedding, I am happy to report that, even a week later when we returned from our honeymoon, the cake was still delicious! Combined with a great price and a great experience working with Hilde, I give Magnificent Cakes an A++

Wonderful! posted 6/6/2013

We booked Hilde at Magnificent Cakes because she had the best cakes and the best prices! She was so flexible and amazing! I ended up having a different flavor for each tier of my cake, with no extra charge, and each one was absolutely incredible! My husband's groom's cake was chocolate and covered in Little Debbie cakes. Hilde gave us EXACTLY what we wanted! A must have for your wedding!

beautiful cake!! posted 4/11/2013

I was very impressed with Hilde at Magnificent Cakes. I was unsure about what kind of cake I wanted other than the fact that I knew I wanted a different flavor for each tier. She had us over to her home(her bakery is in her house) with lots of cake to taste and tons of pictures!! I picked everything out that night and on the wedding day, it was absolutely perfect! It looked exactly like what I had picked out and she got there on time, in order to work with the florist to get my real flowers put on the cake. She was very easy to work with. I highly recommend her.

Beautiful and affordable posted 3/24/2013

Hilde was great to work with. She charges $2.25 per slice which was the best deal I found. Both of our cakes looked amazing and tasted great too! The grooms cake was an Auburn cake and it was a great hit. I would highly recommend Magnificent Cakes.

My cake stole the show posted 6/28/2012

Where do I begin!! Hilde is a master at cake design and taste! I gave her my visison and she saw it through!! My cake and the groom cake were more popular than that actual bride and groom. Cake was moist, the taste was unbelievable and the baker is a gem! I love Hilde and would suggest everyone have a cake by Hilde!!

Cake genius! posted 6/10/2012

Hilde created the best tasting and greatest looking wedding cakes I have ever seen. I am a bit biased, but everyone at the wedding raved over how wonderful they looked and tasted. For my cake I wanted the icing to mimic the embroidery from my wedding dress, so I sent her a couple of pictures of my dress. The detail of the icing turned out better than I ever imagined. My husband's cake was much more fun. His was baseball themed, chocolate cake with peanut butter icing...the greatest tasting cake I have ever had. Both cakes were delicious but his by far the favorite. The baseball themed cake even had oreos piped like baseballs. The attention to detail was incredible. I simply can't put into words how perfect and delicious all of my cakes were. I will most definitely be using Magnificent Cakes again!!!

a masterpiece! posted 5/14/2012

Hilde was a joy to work with! We went with a grooms style cake instead of having a bridal and grooms cake. The Auburn themed cake was great and tasted even better!

Hildi was awesome to work with. She met with my mom and I, and she helped us figure out what we really needed. All of her cakes taste wonderful! I highly recommend using her for your cakes!

Wedding Cake posted 4/2/2012

I ordered my cake from Hilde and had the taste test(the best part!!) I realized at the wedding that my bottom layer wasn't what we had ordered and wasn't very happy about that but it was still good though! I hope that my top tier for 1st anniversary is right! The cake was delicious though!

Best Wedding Cake posted 12/25/2011

I tried several bakeries in the Birmingham area before visiting Hilde. Every time I had a cake testing I would come away feeling sick because the cakes were just so sweet, and not very good at all. I had a specific idea for my cake, and no one seemed to act like they would be willing to do what I wanted, or they would want to charge a ridiculous amount. The last baker I visited was Hilde of Magnificent Cakes. I showed her what I wanted, and it was no problem at all. Her cake WONDERFUL, and to top it all off, she charged me half the price of anyone else. Hilde was one of the best finds of my wedding. The cake turned out exactly how I requested and tasted fantastic. I received so many compliments on it! I recommend Hilde 110%!
