Nikki was so friendly and approachable the whole way through the process. She responded very quickly to all emails and left me feeling very at ease. The cake was exactly how we expected and looked and tasted amazing- I couldn’t have asked for more and have recommended her to others. She created the perfect cake for us and offered great value for money

Cake was absolutely as we had envisaged it. Beautiful, simple and elegant as requested. The process from start to finish was totally uncomplicated. Our supplier was happy to guide us through process to ensure we got what we wanted With no pressure to ‘upgrade’ or spend money we didn’t have ( unusual with anything wedding!) Our cake was gluten-free as I’m coeliac and was without doubt the best g/f cake i have tasted. It kept very well , so not a slice was wasted .
- Anna Ransley

Thank you very much for making such a beautiful and tasty wedding cake. So may people have commented on it. I am afraid it all got eaten, some even for breakfast the following day! A real success.

- Tracy Mann
I just wanted to send you a note to say a huge thank you for the most wonderful cake for our wedding. It was absolutely stunning, but more importantly, it tasted absolutely divine! I cannot recommend your chocolate cake highly enough.

We could not recommend Nicki enough, she went above and beyond to understand our guests dietary needs, and designs we liked - and offered so much information and options r.e sizing, design, flavours etc. We live in a different area so could not attend face to face cake tasting, so she made the effort to post us samples of our choice with dietary needs in mind. The cake was so delicious, moist and full of flavour, and looked absolutely beautiful. We have had so many compliments from guests!
- Vicky MacPherson
We'd done a load of research and we'd tasted cakes at many other companies with the aggressive marketing and the quality of theirs was genuinely not a patch on yours. Your cake was unbelievably moist, amazingly chocolaty and tasted like it was seriously good quality.

I was very fortunate to find Nicki to help design the perfect cake, from sending delicious samples through the post to setting it all up on the day. We received amazing comments from guests & family, as the mother of the groom I was responsible to organise a cake for the wedding party coming over from California, so it was a big responsibility to get the cake right & Nicki delivered it all to perfection
- Bridget Sheldrake
Thank you so much for creating our wonderful wedding cake. Not only did it look stunning but it tasted amazing and all of our guests commented on both design and taste, in fact it was one of the most talked about things at the wedding! It was also one of the easiest things to organise and arrange, which is due to your help and support.

I can honestly say, the cake was the easiest and smoothest part of our entire wedding planning. I was never concerned or worried as we were taken care of from start to finish - despite COVID 19 causing such disruption! I sent a few images of cakes I loved and explained our colours and theme and serendipity blew it out the park! Honestly amazing! I actually cried with how perfect it looked! And it tasted AMAZING also! The biggest compliment I can make is there was no cake left afterwards!!!
- Shelley Peck
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for making such a wonderful cake for us. It looked absolutely amazing and tasted divine. All our guests were effusive in their compliments for it and it was quite a feat to get the looks AND the taste to such a high degree.
