s asking too much. He also listened to us so carefully as we described what we wanted, and created a cake that reflected our favorite flavors! He created a maple bacon cake (with bacon bits!), chocolate ganache filling, and peanut butter frosting. Our guests LOVED the cake - as did we! We will be ordering this cake from him again in the future for sure. I can't say enough about how much we loved our experience working with Mark - and recommend him 100%!

Mark is awesome. He is exactly the kind of baker we wanted to work with! He was patient with me while I went back and forth between designs and flavors, and we ultimately settled on a very sleek, modern yet classical double barrel wedding cake....
The clean white, with the navy line and flowers, was gorgeous! None of my family or friends has ever had a wedding cake like that! We also chose Meraki because of the quality of cake and flavors. The cake was dense and flavorful and I cannot wait to order another one! Thanks, Mark!

Fast forward to the wedding day, the cake was more amazing than I ever could have imagined! As awesome as it looked from the outside it was twice as good to ear! I actually preferred it over our wedding cake. My husband and I got so many compliments, and everyone loved it! Needless to say my expectations were far exceeded! You won't go wrong choosing Meraki Cakes & Bakes for your special cake!

We did a traditional white three tier cake, marble flavor, and snicker-doodle filling. Our Cake topper was a double heart with an infinity symbol, flowers cascaded from the second tier to the base. It was exactly what we wanted, not to mention extremely delicious. I cannot say enough good things about Mark, he works his magic in the kitchen.

Mark Hill, Meraki Cakes and Bakes, was the BEST! We were so pleased that he was willing to incorporate some of my own recipes into our daugher's wedding cake, and cupcakes, which made the day even more special with the tastes of her childhood....

Mark was accommodating in every way. He arranged with the wedding planner for pick up of the cake in Denver for our wedding in the mountains, and everything arrived in perfect condition. I recommend Mark whole heartedly. You couldn't ask for a better baker!

My husband didn’t not have many wedding requests, except for one. He wanted for someone to replicate his grandmother’s Italian Wedsing Cake recipe. I contacted Meraki Cakes and Bakes with the request, and Mark was happy to accept the challenge!...
He madeus two identical looking cakes try— grandmother’s recipe and the recipe he generally uses. After a few bites, my husband pointed at one of the cakes and said “that’s grandma’s.” We we’re so happy that mark was able to replicate the cake! Not only did it taste like grandmother’s, it also looked exactly what I invisioned—elegant, with beautiful calla lilies! Meraki Cakes and Bakes’ creations are true works of art!
I am extremely passionate about baking and cake decorating. I spent many years in a profession that wasn't my passion so in 2016 I started, meraki Cakes & Bakes. I now create delicious and unique works of art for my awesome clients. It's truly an honor and a privilege to create something special for a client's celebration and I look forward to working with you.
