We had our 3 tier cake from here and cookie favours for our wedding on 18/09/2021. It was a very strange time booking in during covid times but the bakery were very accommodating. They gave us samples to take home and there was never any pressure to book. We went for the 3 tier Dior design and had lots of lovely compliments from our guests about how tasty it was and how beautiful it looked. The cookies were also a hit as they were personalised and looked so lovely with our name and personalised to our wedding colours. They were the perfect favours and very reasonably priced! Thank you ladies for the perfect cake and cookies!

Sweet addition to the best day ever
Gardeners were very helpful in figuring out what we wanted. As we were restricted on guests, we went for a cupcake tower, as well as cookies as wedding favours. Everything tasted delicious and it was just what we hoped for. Would highly recommend

Helen got our requirements spot on
We booked Gardners Bakery for our wedding cake and cookie favours and we weren’t disappointed! Helen got our requirements spot on- the cake was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! She even created two sugar paste guinea pigs in honour of our beloved pets and the cookie favours went down very well with our guests. Thank you so much Gardners!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Over the last 30 years, we have made approximately 8,000 wedding cakes so it is hard to pin-point only one that is our most memorable. We especially enjoy a challenge, where we have the chance to collaborate with the couple, and create a truly one-of-a-kind design.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

We are happy to create any style of cake, from modern cakes to vintage and rustic designs.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fifth generation of the Gardner family are now running our second shop, Gardners Cakery in Market Harborough.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask friends or family members who are married for recommendations.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A particular favourite of ours, is to see a handmade Bride & Groom figure of the couple on top of their wedding cake. We personally make these using photos of the couple in their wedding outfits, to recreate them on their special day.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples can book a consultation where they will visit our Wedding Cake Studio to view a range of our wedding cakes and to try our delicious sponges. At the consultation, Helen will talk to the couple about their wedding theme, colours and ideas for the cake, to create the perfect design for each couple.
