"Wine Not" Try this On-Demand Dessert That Pairs Cake with Something Special

Maxine Baked can help you decide whether to pair red or white with your next cake


In Latin there is a saying: in vino veritas, in wine there is truth, and the truth is this is one delicious cake. Schantel Maxine Neal, owner of Maxine Baked, offers a choice of 24 cake and cupcake flavors but is happy to remind us that “flavor combinations are endless!” This beauty pictured is the result of a collaboration with a client: vanilla cake, a strawberries and cream vodka drizzle, strawberry buttercream, and finished with a white chocolate drip. There’s also a mini plastic bottle of Moscato inserted along with a series of Moscato-filled pipettes where typical cakes might showcase candles – in case that vodka drizzle didn’t do the trick. Neal says that her number one seller is still vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, but there are no wrong answers here. As pictured, this cake was meant to feed 20, but since we aren’t gathering just yet, who says it can’t feed one? Maxine Baked offers contactless delivery or pick up at Hope & Main in Warren, so ordering is as easy as pie. Oh yeah, she has those, too!
