Exceeded expectations on design!!!
Selina was professional from the word go. From the initial ‘taster meeting’ (yummy!) to the quotes and follow up emails confirming all details. Our wedding cake was exactly what we asked for in terms of flavour and taste but exceeded expectations on the design!!! The intricate details of the flowers, colours and our Christmas theme were just phenomenal! Thank you so much!!! �

The cake looked absolutely amazing
The cake looked absolutely amazing, exactly what I wanted. All the family and friends were very impressed, lots of them mentioned how good it was, there wasn’t any left to take home at the end of the night. You did a fantastic job and I now have the top tier in my display cabinet at home. Thank you sooo much.
