“If there was an option to give Clare a million star review for the beautiful cake she made for our wedding that would still not be enough.
From the very beginning, when we first asked Clare to make our cake, she was incredibly professional and spent a lot of time with us walking through colours and designs, to make sure we had exactly what we wanted. Following on from that we had a cake tasting (which I feel should be mentioned here as this was a great event in itself!)
The amount of time and care Clare spent to make our wedding cake was incredible. The intricacy of the detail of the flowers on the cake made them look completely realistic - in fact during our wedding day I had nearly a dozen people tell me they thought the roses on our cake were actually real until they took a closer look.
The cake was absolutely stunning and a real centrepiece on our big day. So much so that I really didn’t want to cut into it! We had three different flavours to serve during the wedding and we kept the top tier - all three were delicious. Having gone for four tiers we thought we would have some left over to aid our hangovers the next day, but it all went.
Clare spent an awful lot of time the day before our wedding setting the cake up, and I feel that this should be mentioned. She was a perfectionist and spent at least 3 hours ensuring each rose was in place and everything looked exactly as we planned - it completely exceeded any expectations we had.
Brides be warned - ensure you choose a very pretty dress because you’ll need something special to outshine any cake that Clare will make for you.”

“Thanks so much for your incredible effort with the cake - it looked absolutely fantastic and I’m delighted to report that almost all of it was eaten to the extent that I didn’t even get a bit of the lemon that I was looking forward to! As far as I’m concerned this is exactly as it should be. We will both be recommending you!”

“A big thank you for our wedding cake - we and all of our guests absolutely loved it!
All three flavours were absolutely perfect, and we even ended up with a little bit of the orange and almond and red velvet tiers to see us through the next week, which was a real treat.
Thanks for looking after us and making everything so easy.”

“We were really unsure what kind of cake we wanted, except that we didn’t want it to look like a typical wedding cake. Clare expertly used our invite as inspiration and created a stunning cake that totally captured the uplifting, colourful and un-typical mood we were aiming for. She created beautiful sugar sunflowers to top the cake, which fitted perfectly with other parts of our day. More importantly, the cake was delicious - a lovely, fluffy vanilla cream. We are so pleased we asked Clare to make our cake, as we would otherwise never have been able to describe the elegant and simple design she created for us.”

The cake that resulted was stunning, not to mention delicious! The attention to detail was exqusite and her passion for her art really shone through. Thank you so much!”

“Clare’s craftsmanship and attention to detail is AMAZING and the champagne flavour she did for us was a huge hit, so fresh and delicious. I have received so many compliments, both on its taste and its appearance; I could not recommend her more highly.”
