I had never visited Maxie B's before I decided to choose them for my wedding. I was not disappointed. Maxie B's met all my expectations with my vision, flavor, and delivery. I enjoyed working with Maxie B's and would definitely recommend them to other brides-to-be.
Thanks again for making my day very special!
Our cake was perfection! The bakery worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted. We did our cake tasting and they gave us whole pieces of cake to try...then sent us home with everything we couldn't finish! It was amazing! My husband is an officer in the Marine Corps and they did his grooms cake for free because of his military service. This bakery is professional and their work is impeccable! Not only did our cake taste amazing but it looked stunning! Loved working with Maxie B's every step of the way!!
Honestly, I don't know where to start.
Maxie B's is the best of the best. (period)
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.
Winning a wedding cake is a blessing, to say the least but we were truly honored to work with the incredible staff who immediately took us in as if we had been bakery locals for years.
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.
Thank you Maxie B's... we LOVE you!

Maxie B's did a 4 tier white cake for our wedding with pug dog cake toppers that we found to personalize it. They had several photos for us to look through to get ideas from for the patterned tiers. It came together perfectly, not to mention the cake tastes amazing! We did 3 flavors, apple, strawberry and a lemon pound cake. It was perfect for our summer wedding.
I also got a groom's cake for the rehearsal dinner. They took my idea of Maryland blue crabs and brought them to life. It couldn't have been any cuter! The Oreo flavored cake was excellent, too!
Maxie B's delivers the best of both worlds!! My cake was both beautiful and delicious. Shannon was incredibly helpful. We enjoyed going into the bakery (which is decorated beautifully) and trying out the cake. Shannon helped us create the cake that could capture the essence of the wedding and stay within our budget. Two of our recently engaged friends decided to use Maxie B's for their wedding cake after having it at ours (which makes me happy because I'll get to have more of their delicious cake in the near future!)
Maxie B's and Shannon were wonderful to work with. The cake was beautiful and we received many compliments on how great it tasted!
I had previously used Maxie B's for 3 different family birthday cakes so I was already impressed with their work. However, when I met with Shannon for the first time, I knew I was in for a treat (no pun intended!). I already had design ideas in mind, but she added details that made my design truly amazing!
Not only was the cake absolutely delicious and was complimented by many, many guests, but the customer service at Maxie B's was also fantastic. A week before my wedding I was contacted saying the bride from the previous weekend had broken the cake stand I was going to use. I had a mini freak-out, but was rest assured that I would receive my cake stand fee as a refund. They also gave me another stand on my day that was perfect for our wedding details.
I will definitely continue using Maxie B's for all my special events!
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!!!
We chose to go with a small cake and a bunch of cupcakes. This option saved us a lot of time serving and more people had more options of cake. We had a fabulous cake tasting. They were very patient and helpful in making this decision. We were able to taste many different pieces of cake. I thought we were going to have little tasting squares, but they gave us whole slices of cake. We tried about 15 different kinds of cake. They even gave us to go boxes for the leftovers. I have been eating at this bakery for over 5 years now and their cake is always amazing. We decided to have our cake one flavor and then the cupcakes to different flavors. Our guest really enjoyed the options and the accessibility of the serving style. I would definitely recommend the bakery to anyone. They were very thorough and follow-uped many times. I believe we got a good deal as well. $500 for about 150 servings.
It was a pleasure working with Maxie B's for our wedding cake. From the initial cake consultation, to putting the final touches on our vision for the perfect wedding cake, the customer service was wonderful. It was more than just purchasing a wedding a cake, it was an experience. I had a vision and Maxie B's made it a true reality. Special thanks to Shannon for always responding promptly to any concerns we had and just being so helpful. The cake and cupcakes are amazing with that homemade feel and flavor and a variety to choose from. We look forward to making more memories and visiting the bakery on our one year anniversary to receive our anniversary cake!! We highly recommend Maxie B's for weddings, birthdays or even on a date night :-).
Thanks Maxie B's
We had Maxie B's do our wedding cake and I had them do our groomscake. Each cake was a work of art! Not only a work of art but absolutely the most delicious cake ever! Shannon was our wedding cake coordinator and was on top of everything. The cake tasting was the most enjoyable experience. The shop has a beautiful atmosphere and the staff are great. They did a great job of helping plan the wedding cake and keeping the groomscake a secret from my husband. I really think the groomscake was more fun to plan than the wedding cake! Everyone at Maxie B's had a great attitude and looked like they had fun at work. They handled everything with the caterer/venue coordinator and florist. I would absolutely recommend MaxieB's to anyone wanting a cake for any reason; wedding, birthday, anniversary. They also sell cake by the slice; so I recommend just stopping by for a snack!
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!
My daughter knew what cake she wanted before her groom proposed and it was the 7-Up cake from Maxie B's. They did it in three elegant tiers; they delivered it perfectly from 60 miles away; it was totally delicious, and, as an extra bonus, it was a light spring green, which was deeply and amusingly appropriate for a wedding on a farm. Altogether a complete success.
Let me start off with saying that the cupcakes and cake were delicious, don't get me wrong - I think I gained a few pounds eating some leftovers. With that being said the cake was not the design we agreed on - not by a long shot. We spoke a lot on the design, I even got a mock up of a gorgeous, simple painted twisty tree with a few fondant leaves on it. That's really all I wanted. I received something that was closer to a finger painting with lots of yellows. Now if I wanted something abstract, it would have been gorgeous, but I didn't, I wanted thin lines, dark browns, and that is not what I got. I didn't make a fuss because my wedding was beautiful and I married my best friend so I was happy overall... but the cake make me very sad - so sad in fact we only saved a small slice so I didn't have to see the image again in a year.
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!
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.
We used Maxie B's for both our wedding cake and the groom's cake at the rehearsal dinner. The staff is incredibly gracious and go above and beyond to make sure your experience is positive and that everything falls into place as planned.
The groom's cake was decorated to look like a tuxedo with fondant. It was darling and was a centerpiece at the dinner. Our wedding cake was 4 tiers with alternating layers of strawberry buttercream and lemon almond. The decoration was beautifully done. We had many guests who commented that the cake was the best wedding cake they had ever had. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
I can't say enough good things about Maxie B's. Both the bride and groom have a serious sweet tooth, so our Wedding Cake was very important to us and Maxie B's was better than even our highest expectations. They were a joy to work this, the two flavors we selected for our cake were unbelievably delicious, and the artwork and design of our cake was beautiful. Our guests loved it, too- the whole cake got eaten! I can't wait to be back in Greensboro to get another slice, our one year anniversary is way too long to wait!
I LOVE Maxie B's and have for years. So when it came time to decide on a wedding bakery, it was a no-brainer! They were delicious and beautiful (we had several small cakes as opposed to one wedding cake).
I ordered five normal sized round cakes for my wedding. The cheaper version of the cake tasting we felt was pointless. They gave us five cakes of our choice then told us to e-mail them. So that didnt really help much at all. So I would pay for the full cake tasting next time so you can actually talk to someone. For us we knew what we basically wanted anyways and the design. I e-mailed that five flavors we wanted as well as the design that was displayed in the bakery. The lady in charge of wedding cakes was very nice and quick with her e-mails. She worked with me on the colors of the icing. On the day of we picked up out cakes and went to the venue. Then to my surprise none of the cakes were decorated other than the frosting texture! I called them up and they said they forgot to give me the decorations for the main cake (that I was to put on myself?) I asked about the other four plain cakes that should not be plain. (Who wants a plain wedding cake?) With no hassle they immediately sent a worker to my venue and decorated the cakes. All worked out well. I would still order from them again as they handled the situation wonderful and were nice the entire time. The cakes are just to die for. They were the hit of our wedding. They are moist (most flavors) and the icing is the best. Everyone keeps talking about our great cakes and saying it was the best wedding cakes they had. We love Maxie B's anyways and it was worth every penny. They did a great high-quality job.
