CAKE WAS AMAZING! Michael is easy to work with, we showed him photos of what we wanted and he replicated it so perfectly!

Tasted delicious, he was helpful with tips on freezing/storing it, and he sent us samples to our venue so we didn't have to travel to Westminster.

A true pleasure, we would use him again!!

We really enjoyed working with Michael! We had gone to 2 other cake vendors before meeting with him. He was our favorite among the three vendors as well as the most detail-oriented. He also made the cake tasting more of a personalized, formal affair as he provided a full table setting for us complete with china, freshly-made coffee and full cake slices (not just samples) to try and discuss together. It was a very elegant and well-presented experience. Michael also had a big display screen which showcased some of his cake creations (all flawless and beautiful) and had samples of Styrofoam cake tiers to help us with visuals. He was super organized during the consultation and went beyond the general experience you have with a cake vendor. He wrote down every detail of our cake vision, asked questions in order to get it right, and worked with us on both our requests and budget.

He was also very helpful throughout the planning process. We had a conflict with our cake topper and he was quick to respond and professional yet friendly in sharing with us his suggestions, and he was able to make it work which alleviated some last minute wedding-planning stress!

Overall, Michael is tremendous in both the form and function of his cakes. Our wedding cake looked and tasted great. We got so many compliments on it and being the cake lovers we are will never forget how perfect it was!

It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Michael at Artistic Desserts.

First, Michael nailed the two most important parts of a wedding cake--taste and look. Most weddings we go to, people eat a bite or two of the cake. EVERYONE ate their entire piece at our wedding. And many asked for more! The cake also looked phenomenal. He matched exactly our vision as discussed at our consult, and even more impressive, he matched the rather unique color of our wedding party dresses. We sent him a swatch and figured he would do what he could to get close. Well I don't know how he did it but it was an EXACT match. It looked so wonderful in our pictures.

Second, working with Michael was a breeze. In all the wedding craziness, it was so great that Michael offers cake consults over the phone. He shares his screen with you (we don't know how to describe it better than that--technology confuses us!) and goes over everything from design to color to toppers and everything in between. He brought great ideas to the table that clearly showed he listened to our ideas and helped translate them into an executable cake design.

Finally, we wanted to make sure that we found someone that was comfortable doing a same-sex wedding. Michael was so warm, welcoming, and supportive. It was absolutely never an issue. And I can say that certainly wasn't the case with everyone we met with.

If you want a delicious and beautiful cake, designed and executed by a wonderful person who couldn't be easier to work with, go with Artistic Desserts. We assure you, it will be one of the best decisions you make for your event.

From the minute we spoke to Michael we knew our wedding cake experience was going to be excellent! Not only was he accommodating with getting us samples, they were so delicious! He worked so well to design our cake and give us great ideas. I can't imagine using anyone else for a cake ever again and HIGHLY recommend Artistic Desserts to anyone looking for a delicious cake and a great customer service experience.

Michael Markwitz from Artistic Desserts was the best! My wedding was August 9, 2015 and things have just settled down for me to provide feedback to all of the wonderful vendors that I worked with to make my wedding day special. I provided Michael with a picture of what I wanted and he completely exceeded my expectations. Michael was creative and very easy to work with --I could definitely tell that he is a seasoned professional and that really made me feel at ease. I absolutely love all of the pictures of my cake. And what made my cake even more stellar was that it was delicious! I received many compliments on the cake, and my husband and I indulged so much that we ate a few slices from the top tier days after the wedding that we barely had any left to save for our first anniversary:) I couldn’t have asked for a better cake or chef!

Michael Markwitz is not only a talented baker and artist, he has wonderful customer service skills and is a pleasure to work with. From the start, he impressed us with a beautiful (and delicious!) presentation of cakes at his home and we booked him on the spot. He was helpful and responsive and created the perfect cake for our wedding. I will absolutely use him again in the future and have been recommending him to all my friends and family.
