Grace and The Chocolate Maven were outstanding! I had to plan a wedding over the phone from Florida. She made helped me with my choices and was very friendly. I wanted a non traditional wedding cake so my father made three cake stands different at different levels and ordered 3 different cakes to put on top of the stands. We chose a gluten-free German Chocolate cake with White buttercream icing, a rustic strawberry and blueberry cream cake, and a tiramisu cake. The cakes were SOOOOO GOOOD! The German Chocolate was my favorite but the other 2 cakes made a big hit as well with my guests. They were delivered on time and set up to perfection. Grace even followed up with me after my event to congratulate me and thank me for the business. A+ customer service. Check out their website for pictures of their traditional wedding cakes. They all look amazing! I thought there cakes were so good that I stopped in their bakery a bought some of there delicious pies to give out to my grandparents. Best of luck to all the new brides! -Sandy

Chocolate Mave provided a truly amazing cake for our intimate wedding at my sister's home in Santa Fe, NM. Without doubt, it was the most delicious, rich, moist cake we have ever had! The flavors all worked together in amazing harmony, and it literally melted in our mouths. We were so very happy and pleased.

We will be back to Santa Fe many more times, and we plan to make Chocolate Maven one of our regular stops. We can't wait to try many of the baked treats you have!

Cheron was AMAZING!!! Very accommodating to any changes I made. The grooms and wedding cake came out exactly like the picture I sent her, everyone was raving how much they were " works of art," and they tasted as good as they looked! She was absolutely a treat to work with, so sweet and easy to talk to and get ahold of. Would highly recommend her work!

Cheron is wonderful and very talented. Unfortunately, she is no longer in New Mexico, but we loved having her while she was here. I'm so happy to hear that she was wonderful with you as well. Reyna, our current wedding cake baker is also extremely talented, and we are so lucky to have her. Thank you for the great feedback! Congratulations again.

Now I see why Chocolate Maven has such a fantastic reputation! Our wedding cake was beyond delicious and we ate leftovers for several days!
I was a little nervous because we decided to go with a sheet wedding cake instead of a tiered one, but they did an absolutely gorgeous job and eased any of my worries! Everyone loved it!!

I didn't have a traditional cake, but went the cake buffet route instead. I ordered 6 or 7 cakes and a pie. They were all ready for pick up at the time specified. Their cakes are DELICIOUS. Our main cake was the Mayan Chile Chocolate cake - chocolate cake with a subtle chile chocolate cream frosting. This is the most unique cake I've ever had. It even comes decorated with little chile pepper ristras made of icing. Ordering is easy since they are one of very few bakeries in Santa Fe with their menu online. Our guests really loved the selection they had with the cake buffet, too. We even had a wheat free chocolate torte for the guests with wheat & gluten allergies.

We met with the owner, who is in charge of wedding cakes, and put together a cupcake tower. We went in not really knowing what we wanted besides cupcakes and a cheesecake top layer, but he helped us pick out some amazing flavors (lemon cupcakes with sugar-coated cherries on top), and when we saw the whole thing put together, my husband and I almost wet ourselves, it was so beautiful! The cheesecake topper was amazing, I could've eaten the whole thing (except somebody beat us to it, but that's another story), and everybody kept talking about how wonderful the cupcakes were! We can't wait to go back on our anniversary and get more!

Thank you Amy! We are so happy to hear that everything went so well, and we apologize that we had not responded sooner. Dharam, the owner, still gives every consultation his undivided attention and expertise to make their cake (or cupcakes) exactly what one wants for their big day. We hope to see you back at Chocolate Maven Bakery and Cafe for your anniversary, or even just for breakfast. I hope all is well and thank you again.
