Chef Marie and Carlos are a joy to work with. They exceeded our expectations. They provided a dessert table for us along with a birthday cake for my husband (we got married on his birthday). The cake was a boat with our beagle Brutus riding on the front. It was so detailed and beautiful. I am not a sweets person and I just love every dessert that they do. The cake carrot is my favorite. Chef Marie is always responsive and super creative. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Hands on Sweets!

Working with Chef Marie was such a pleasure. The wedding cake was absolutely stunning. The presentation was perfect and Chef Marie was on top of every detail in getting the cakes set up at the site. The Auburn grooms cake was incredibly creative. Both cakes were absolutely delicious and the guests were delighted. Thanks so much!

In today's foodie generation where cake shows abound and unique twists on cake flavors, shapes and styles are equally plentiful, discovering Hands on Sweets nestled in a discreet location on Kennedy was a welcome discovery for us. Chef Marie was an absolute pleasure to work with and her quality was truly superior. We came in with ideas for a traditional tiered wedding cake and she ran with these ideas creating a truly magnificent piece of artwork. The small-scaled cake tasting was definitely paralleled in the final product, with virtually every single wedding guest raving about the deliciousness of the cake. This was noted in the absence of leftovers! The cake was moist, not overtly sweet, and the fruit infused frostings and coulis were bold in flavor though not overpowering. Simply put, we could not have asked for a better wedding cake and look forward to the anniversary eating of the top tier. We wholeheartedly recommend Hands on Sweets for all quality, gourmet cake needs.

We hired Hands on Sweets to make our cake for our wedding. Chef Marie was amazing! The cake was so good! We got so many compliments on how great and beautiful our cake was. Definitely try the almond cake with amaretto filing.... so yummy! My husband and I loved our cake so much we could not wait a year to eat the top tier. We ate it on our one month anniversary instead. We will definitely use Hands on Sweets again!

Chef Marie from Hands on Sweets was wonderful. Our cake was AMAZING! When we went for our tasting, Chef Marie spent almost 2 hours with us, listening to our wishes and looking at photos of my "dream wedding cake." Then she took all of that information and created a sketch of a custom cake just for us! Then we chose the flavor- pink champagne!! It was delicious! On the day of the wedding, the cake was delivered and set up perfectly- it was SO BEAUTIFUL we didn't even want to cut it!! And it was so delicious that we saved the top layer for our 1st anniversary, even though we never planned on doing that! Overall our cake was one of a kind and our guests loved it!
