I had a clear idea of the cake flavor I wanted for my wedding (rosemary honey). However, I had problems finding someone to execute my vision. I emailed Maxine and she was happy to test out the flavor and make the cake I wanted. After some tinkering and research she made an amazing cake! She made it exactly like I wanted it, used real ivy, and my guests raved about it! She was amazingly flexible and helpful in the whole process, I highly reccomend to all couples, especially those who are looking for something custom.

Short, but certainly sweet: Maxine was extremely responsive and professional, a true pleasure to work with. Our wedding cake was insanely good, from the few bites I got to have of it! It was moist, so chocolaty and amazing, and people were absolutely raving about it all night. We had a pool party the next day, and the leftover cake was gone within about ten minutes of us setting it out. We chose a very simple buttercream decor for the cake, and it was exactly what we wanted. The buttercream was not very sweet at all, which we loved, but opt for a different option if you like a sweeter frosting. Highly recommended!

Maxine's wedding cake was absolutely delicious! We did not want the standard sugary wedding cake. We asked Maxine to make us a strawberry shortcake that wasn't too sweet and that's exactly what she gave us! The fresh strawberries and custard filling was perfect. Everyone said how good the cake was. I would highly recommend Maxine, she was very easy to work with and makes a delicious cake!!

We absolutely loved working with Maxine. She was so accommodating and open to our ideas - some of which strayed from the traditional. Extremely easy to work with - you will feel like you've known her for awhile after just sitting with her for your tasting (in her awesome kitchen, by the way!) Aside from her professionalism and easygoing nature she is one heck of a baker. We had a wedding cake, pies and chocolate hazelnut tarts. If our caterer hadn't saved us some there would have been nothing left. Our guests were raving about how delicious the desserts were in the weeks following our wedding. Since there was no wedding cake to freeze we will definitely be calling Maxine for an anniversary cake in a year!!!

Maxine was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She took our ideas for cake and icing flavors and worked with them for our tasting. But it was clear right away that chocolate was the way to go. Maxine makes the second BEST chocolate cake I have even tasted (my grandmother's wins but mostly for sentimental reasons).

She made us a gorgeous 3-tiered chocolate cake with dark chocolate grenache filling with pink strawberry icing and flowers on the outside.

All of our guests agreed it was the most beautiful and most delicious wedding cake they'd ever seen.

If you are having a wedding anywhere in the Hudson Valley, Sullivan or Ulster County or even down in NYC and want to work with someone who is more talent and less attitude...call Maxine!

We can't wait to have an excuse to order another cake from her!

Maxine baked amazing mini pies for our wedding favors- she was so reliable, flexible and easy to work with! Maxine was open to different ideas in packaging- she even let me send custom packaging to her and packaged up everything herself, exactly as I wanted. To say that I am neurotic and picky is an understatement- and Maxine went above and beyond AND the favors looked and tasted perfect! I received so so many compliments on the mini pecan and apple pies. I highly recommend using Maxine for baked goods- her wedding cakes look amazing as well! :)

It was a pleasure to work with Maxine from start to finish. I found her to be very flexible and willing to meet our needs, always with patience and professionalism. She provided us with an amazing carrot cake and a wide variety of desserts, all of which were fantastic. She delivered the cake and desserts right on time, and we could not have been happier with the whole experience. I would highly recommend Maxine to anyone looking for a special-occasion baker.

Maxine is a genius, and a nice, easy to work with genius! We hosted a Norwegian wedding in Stone Ridge, NY and needed special ringed almond cakes called kransekakes which are used for weddings and festivals in Norway. They are quite specialized and a lot of work and complicated. And we needed 10 of them! I had the ring forms, but knew this was beyond what I could do or would have time to do! On a hope, I called Maxine, a very professional baker right in our neighborhood. She seemed willing to try, so we took her the rings, a sample recipe, the little flags on toothpicks used to decorate, and a picture. She became intrigued and researched the project and said she could do it. She made a sample which I tested on my Norwegian teacher. "Do you know what this is?", I asked "Yes"! He said, "This is the special festive Kransekake we have in Norway, but it is the best I ever tasted!"
She delivered the cakes and they were a huge success. They were decorated perfectly in the traditional way. Every bit was eaten. The Norwegians said that s kransekake can sometimes be rather dry and too chewy to really eat, but that these were delicious. What a success!

She also made the bride and groom as special Norwegian cake called a bløtkake which i a specialized sponge cake with fruit and cream and covered in marzipan and decorated. It was also hard to make but perfect and beautiful.

Who would think we could find such a talented, professional, willing baker in Accord, NY just a few miles from our home? I really think this woman could bake anything and would do it very well!

Absolutely PERFECT wedding cake!
Maxine worked with us to create a gluten-free chocolate cake with chocolate ganache/raspberry filling, and white buttercream frosting for 135 guests.
It was so fabulous, and on a 90 degree day it held up just beautifully.
She worked directly with our florist (Dennis at Green Cottage in High Falls) and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Just cut and eat and say "I can't believe it's gluten-free!"
:)
Thanks Maxine!

So, I have to be honest, I normally never eat a wedding cake because they don't always taste good.
Well, Maxine made the best wedding cake I have ever had. So fresh!!! Butter-cream that is soft and fluffy and not too sweet. Bavarian cream that is light and creamy and a chocolate cake that is moist, yes moist!
Maxine is not only a fantastic baker but a true artist. Check out her web site, you'll be amazed.
There was a generous portion as well, not skimpy pieces.
On time delivery, easy to communicate and overall a pleasure to work with.
No doubt, a great choice for bakers.

The cake made by Maxine's Catering and Bittersweet Bakers was not only delicious, but it looked like a true work of art. All who saw and tasted the cake raved about its presentation and flavor. Maxine worked with my fiancee and I to put our cake together. I had to have a tier that was gluten-free because of my allergy and even though most gluten-free recipes are dry and not the best tasting, Maxine did a great job! I give her cakes and service a 10/10!!!

Maxine worked closely with us and coordinated with the florist, Dennis Nutley of Green Cottage, who provided all our flowers. The flavorful, moist cake was elegantly iced in the color we chose and the filling was an amaxing seedless raspberrfy butter cream. We had many compliments on the appearance and taste of our wedding cake. Maxine delivered the cake and assisted with the placement of our toppers with plenty of time to spare.. We hope to have future opportunities to place orders with Maxine to celebrate life events.

The cake that Maxine made for our wedding was simply marvelous and very reasonably priced. Between us, my husband and I tasted many cakes over the years and by far Maxine's wedding cake is simply the tastiest; moist and flavorful and not too sweet. Her coffee-favored buttercream icing and bavarian cream filling is to die for! I don't think that I saw one piece of cake left on any one of our guest's plates - it was simply that good. On top of the magnificent cake, Maxine is easy going, friendly and very easy to work with. We had a picture of the exact cake we wanted and Maxine delivered it exactly as we imagined it. Choose Maxine - she and her cake are great!

Maxine was amazing!!! I live in Maryland and had my wedding in NewYork so most of our contact was through phone and email. Which for a bride is hard but it was easy with Maxine. Every time I emailed she got back to me super fast. She also did a a bunch of cake testers for us which were delicious. My husband is a cake man and he fell in love with our cake. They are delicious and moist and we could not get enough. I did not want fondant anywhere near my cake so she somehow managed to make butter cream icing smooth as possible. They cakes are delicious and I the price you just can't beat!!

I had a very intimate wedding of 19 people in total and Maxine provided a wedding cake beyond my imagination! Since it was a destination wedding, Maxine and I corresponded via email over a period of 6 months in order to assemble the wedding cake.

I had a very intimate wedding of 19 people in total and Maxine provided a wedding cake beyond my imagination! Since it was a destination wedding, Maxine and I corresponded via email over a period of 6 months in order to assemble the wedding cake.

Maxine was great, everything that you could want from a cake. Looked great and tasted even better. Maxine took our ideas and wants and made a cake that was exactally what we were looking for. For the price, this is an excellent choice. She was very flexible and was open to any ideas we had. I would recommend her to anyone.

Maxine was a pleasure to work with. Her tasting cakes were delicious and made it hard to choose which flavor we wanted! We went with a simple cake design and the cake ended up looking lovely. We received many compliments on her delicious desserts as well. Maxine was very flexible when I had to change the menu close to the date and was willing to try things not on her menu. Our dessert buffet was a huge hit! Thanks Maxine!

Maxine was a joy to work with: responsive, creative, extremely helpful-- I was looking for a cake in the form of a snowboard mountain. And that was before we saw and tasted her sublime creation: moist, delicious, a beautifully structured mountain complete with freshly fallen snow and carefully placed 'evergreen trees'. In addition, the bride required a gluten, dairy, egg free (smaller) cake, which was also a huge hit--it was difficult to tell the difference between the cake with all the 'goodies' and the bride's cake. Kudos to Maxine, who came to me highly recommended, with good reason and I fully agree. You'll be very pleased.

Maxine made my wedding very special with her artistic creation for my "beach style" wedding. She met with me and went over my ideas and she created a stunning cake. She listened to what I suggested and made several great suggestions of her own. No one at the wedding could believe the hibiscus flowers were hand made and edible. We did not want to cut the cake, it was really breath taking! Maxine went above and beyond on our cake. Thank you Maxine, for your gorgeous cake!!

Maxine's cakes are awesome! My wife being an art teacher had a crazy idea on how she wanted her wedding cake to look - she wanted dog bones on it. Maxine listened to what my wife wanted and made us the wedding cake of her/our dreams! Not only did it look exactly the way we wanted it, it was the best wedding cake I have ever had! Thank you Maxine!

Maxine's cakes and desserts are delicious and she is a pleasure to work with. I wanted a very specific design I saw in a photograph for my cake and she was able to recreate it perfectly. We also wanted a cupcake called the Sweet n' Salty that we love but didn't want to transport from our bakery at home to the wedding venue. Maxine was able to create her own version that was absolutely amazing and a HUGE hit with our guests. People are still talking about them. Maxine is so talented and wonderfully flexible to make sure all your sweet tooth needs are met. You should definitely have her make your cake...and I highly recommend you consider the salty caramel cupcakes.

Maxine's cake was absolutely delicious and a true crowd pleaser!!! We had the red velvet cake and it was the best I've had! I sent Maxine a picture of a cake idea that I liked and she replicated it almost exactly. The cake looked beautiful. She delivered it on time and all went seamless. I highly recommend Maxine! Thank you again, Maxine!!! :)

Maxine was fantastic! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and was very helpful, creative, and was willing to offer input while always making sure to help us elaborate our vision. Her cakes were hands down the best cakes we have had (from anywhere, not just weddings). Everyone at the wedding was blown away by the quality of the cake and icing, as well as the presentation of course which was stunning, but the cake...oh the cake! Many people went out of their way to tell us that it was literally the best cake they have ever had, anywhere. Even now, months after the wedding, that is still what people bring up, how good the cake was. We HIGHLY recommend Maxine, great energy, fun and creative, and amazing cake!

We ordered our wedding cake about 3 days before the wedding and needed it to be dairy free (this does not mean without eggs), pretty and taste great. Maxine said no problem. I called other places before I was given her number and they were all giving me a hard time about the dairy-free ingredients. They all wanted to charge me double of what a cake should cost. Not only did Maxine make our wedding cake last minute, it was absolutely gorgeous, it was delicious AND she personally delivered it to the restaurant!! Her price was totally affordable. No one could believe it was dairy-free! We were so grateful and the cake is a great memory today. We have a picture of it in our wedding album! I never liked wedding cake before my own wedding and I can't say enough great things about Maxine.

Maxine's cakes were amazing ! You can definitely taste that she uses only the best ingredients. She also worked with us to customize our own flavors and vision for how the cake would look. She ended up creating a very yummy mango filling because it is my favorite fruit and she had never used mangos before. Also my husband is lactose-intollerant and loves to fish so she made the grooms cake without dairy and to look like a trout. It was a big hit at our reception !
