Chef Marie is a genius! We went for our consultation and cake tasting and were blown away. Cake was not a huge thing for us but after leaving her shop you would have not known that. She was able to incorporate both flavors that we wanted and the design that I was looking for. If you have not looked at her work on Instagram yet - you should!! Truly talented and the cake was SO good. We were so happy the next day when we saw the leftover cake that we had and were able to eat more. I know on our 1 year anniversary I will be calling her for a small cake to celebrate. That night we saw so many people eating cake, it made us so happy that people were enjoying it! Thank you to Chef Marie and her creative team for our gorgeous cake!

Hands-On Sweets was our dessert caterer and there are not enough kind words to describe our experience with them. Marie and Carlos (a husband-wife team) are so professional, accommodating, and sweet! I really loved Marie, we got along great! She is one of the sweetest women that you will meet! Their desserts are AH-MAZING. We had a dessert reception and our desserts included pistachio and vanilla bean macarons, peanut butter brownies, tiramisu mousse, lemon meringue and mixed berry tarts, and caramel apples. Every single dessert was delicious and beautifully decorated and presented! We could not have chosen a better vendor. Everyone raved about the desserts. Please do not hesitate to work with them, you will definitely not be disappointed! :)

OMG I completely loved them! Our phone calls and tasting appointment was always fun, exciting, yet super productive. We shared just an idea we had and Chef Marie totally ran with it and delivered a cake, cake pops, and mini cupcakes that were amazing! Some of our favorite wedding photos were of the dessert table display. It was gorgeous and I want more! In fact... I may order more for future events (even though I live remotely). By the way, the treats were delicious! Guests are still talking about them (literally, we had a friend over yesterday who mentioned them).
It's an understatement to say that we loved Hands on Sweets and the Chefs there.
Would 100% work with them again.

We ordered our wedding cake from Chef Marie at Hands on Sweets and we could not be more happy with our choice. From the first time we met Chef Marie for our tasting, we could tell that she is very passionate about what she does - and also that her cakes are not only beautiful, they taste delicious. Our wedding cake had three tiers with a ruffled exterior. She also did ombre coloring from white at the top to a gray lavender at the bottom - it was breathtakingly beautiful and was everything we had imagined. When we cut the cake at our wedding and actually got to taste it, it was also the best cake I had ever eaten. I highly recommend Hands on Sweets for a cake for any special occasion - but especially for your wedding.

I cannot thank the team that created my husband's grooms cake for our wedding!!! They created NAVY wings, complete with sprayed gold fondant and of such intricate detail, it literally brought me to tears when I saw my husband's face because he was so amazed. This work of art was indeed a huge highlight (which I think even surpassed our wedding cake) of our reception. An unintended result, which made our reception that much more special, was before we cut the cake, the officers surrounded the cake and made a tribute to all the servicemen who were abroad and could not be with their wives/loved ones on Valentine's Day. It really was a beautiful moment. The cake was delicious too. It was chocolate on chocolate and everyone raved about the taste. I wished I had used them for our wedding cake because I am sure they would have done an equally amazing job with a lot of heart, which is what they put into those Navy wings. I highly recommend them if you are looking for someone to take your vision and make it something really unique.

Hands on Sweets team was awesome to work with. They were recommended by another vendor (best way to find vendors). They baked delicious cookies for the favors for the guests and also placed them in the paper sleeves that were special ordered. Looking forward to try other baked goods from them!

Chef Marie is wonderful, a great baker and a wonderful artist. Our wedding cake tasted fabulous and looked beautiful. The macarons she made for our wedding favors were delicious! I could not have found a better bakery for my wedding and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
