Having Maxi B's do my wedding cake and cupcakes was a dream come true. My husband and I have been faithful clients of theirs for years, so it was a no-brainer when we decided to hire them to do our cake for us. The cupcakes were a spur-of-the-moment decision, when we went in for... Read More our cake tasting and left with too many flavors we loved to choose from. Thus, we decided our guests should have as many options as we wanted! We had a lovely assortment of strawberry pots (our favorite!), Oreo, chocolate, and vanilla, and our guests LOVED them all. Our cake was simple, and looked exactly like our inspiration pictures that we sent to Shannon (who by the way is amazing - she is so sweet and extremely responsive to e-mails). The cake was delicious and we cannot wait to eat our top tier on our 1 year anniversary! Maxi B's is quality from start to finish.

Maxie B's has been my favorite bakery since I was a student at UNCG. I have purchased birthday cakes and stopped in for a slice many times. I was so excited to use Maxie B's for our wedding cake and of course it was amazing! We did a smaller tiered lemonade cake and side... Read More cakes of fresh strawberry and carrot. All of our guests loved the cakes and we had multiple people asking us where they were from and said they would drive to Greensboro just to have Maxie B's!

HANDS DOWN - the best cake I've ever had. We loved every Maxie B flavor offered so much that we couldn't choose and had to have 5 different flavors for our wedding cake tiers. We love everything about Maxie B's from the service and staff - to the end product. Our cake was just... Read More as beautiful as it was delicious. We have literally gone to Maxie B's for every occasion since (and leading up to our wedding) because we can't get enough. Almost every guest came to us and complimented the cake during the wedding and afterwards because......it was that good. From our first tasting to our wedding day, we were not disappointed! Can't wait to celebrate our 1 year anniversary for another excuse to go back for more!

When we were looking for a bakery to do our cake we had no idea where to turn. My then fiance found Maxie B's on the internet. He went there and got a couple different slices of cake and cupcakes to try at home. We were both hooked!!! They were way better than anything... Read More we had ever had. We were having a small ceremony and didn't want to spend a fortune but still wanted elegant and nice. So we booked a consultation and boy were we surprised. They give you 6 whole slices of cake to try and then bring home if you can't finish it. They were all delicious but we had narrowed it down. We decided to go with a two tier cake and 24 cupcakes done four different ways. We rented the stands from Maxie B's. They even gave us a few days after to return the stands which was so helpful. We still had family in town and it was a 45 minute drive. Everything was perfect and the guests including my 10 year old niece said it was the best cake she has ever had. We had a tiny bit left over so I'm good for a little bit. But I will definitely be going there as a my bakery! Thank you so much Maxie B's!!!

Shannon was also wonderful to coordinate with us the week leading up and had all information in plenty of time. Highly recommend and you will not be disappointed.
