Beautiful cake

Lou at Bake to the Future made us the most beautiful cake for our wedding. We were only 50 guests in total and Lou suggested the size. We met Lou at Eastwell Manor for our tasting trial. We discussed with her flavours, colour and style as well as tasting 3 different flavour of cakes. On the day, Lou arrived about an hour or so before the guests arrived and delivered and assembled the cake beautifully. Would highly recommend Lou at Bake to the Future.

Best cakes we've ever seen!!!!

Lou not only did our wedding cake, but also my husband’s birthday cake (both of which were amazing). The whole process of dealing with Lou is so stress-free and informative. Literally, you tell her exactly what you want and she makes your ideas come to life, as well as having loads of recommendations / ideas of her own to share with you. We were over the moon with both of the cake she designed for us – our wedding cake got so many complements and the birthday cake (which was a pc, screen, mouse and keyboard) people actually tried to use, as the keyboard and mouse looked real!!! We could not recommend her enough and should we need any further cakes we will be back 😊

5* Absolutely Amazing Cake and Service!

Lou is just like her cakes... AMAZING. From day one she made me and my Wife so relaxed and allowed us to have an amazing input on flavours, designs and customisation. I am a huge Batman fan and Lou helped us incorporate this in a very subtle but awesome way.

The cake flavours we had for our wedding cake were Vanilla, Bakewell and Salted Caramel.

Honestly all 3 tasted like slices of heaven!

The customer service, the personalisation and Lou's talent are some of the best we experienced throughout our wedding journey.

Thank you so much Bake to the Future for making our day even sweeter.

Amazing, couldn’t have asked for more!

My partner and I always knew that when we got married, we wanted a cake that was a little different. We’d seen a cake on a baking show that from the outside appeared to be a regular wedding cake but upon cutting into it, revealed a space scene, complete with cake ball planets.

We understood it would be a tough ask and we met some resistance when pitching the idea to bakers at the Detling Showground wedding fair. Slightly deflated and giving up hope, we spotted a stand showcasing a zombie Spider-Man cake and with the company name Bake to the Future (after my partners favourite movie).

We felt out of our element at the fair, but Lou and her partner were so lovely, they made us feel comfortable and like our idea was a fun challenge rather than a burden. When we told her the idea, she lit up and was so fast to show us a cake she’d made using similar techniques. The excitement for the concept, the company name and the out of the ordinary cake selection told us that this was the right choice for us, no question about it.

Lou was wonderful throughout the whole experience. She is clearly extremely knowledgeable and an incredible baker - that much became evident when we went for our cake tasting. We were so overwhelmed because we loved all three flavours she prepared for us (Terry’s chocolate orange, white chocolate and cherry bakewell). So when she told us that because it was a three tier cake, we could actually have a different flavour for each layer, we were over the moon.

Lou understood our concept and ran with it, meaning we didn’t have a lot more input which was fantastic for us as planning a wedding is very time consuming. The finished product was more than we could have ever hoped for. The cake was not only delicious but it looked amazing inside and out.

If you’re looking for something a little quirky and different but still want an element of traditional, Lou is most certainly who you should go to.

Nautical wedding Cake

We needed a new cake supplier and we contacted Lou after seeing her amazing work. Lou was very personable and created a wonderful setting for our initial cake tasting which wasn’t rushed.
The overall result was absolutely stunning and wowed our guests.

I cannot thank Lou enough for the effort she put into our dream cake

Thank you

Totally amazing

Lou was fabulous from the very first moment I started talking to her. We didn't want your average wedding cake, choosing instead to have an all out lord of the rings cake and Lou did a spectacular job. Everyone commented on how amazing it looked and tasted. I have no hesitation in recommending her to everyone. Thanks Lou!

Amazing! Flawless cake!

Wow! It's difficult to put in to words but the cake was as amazing! Taste, looks, the whole package!
It was like Lou was in our heads, it was exactly what we wanted and more.
Best thing was we were still eating it 10 days after the wedding and it was still perfect! 100% recommend Lou!

The cake of dreams!

We met Lou on a rainy day at a small local wedding fayre and instantly clicked. I knew from the funny pun in the name of her company that we would be on the same wave length!
I had a crazy vision for my wedding cake and a crude sketch and Lou was genuinely excited to hear my ideas (something that not all suppliers are), she was realistic about cost with us and had clever ideas to create the look we wanted whilst staying in our budget. The final design was nothing short (pun intended as it was super tall) of a sculptural masterpiece! We had soo many compliments on how amazing it looked! It was literally EXACTLY what I pictured in my head and very few parts of a wedding end up exactly what you imagine, but this was it and better!
Ok now the important bit, did it taste as good as it looked?
I wanted my cake to look and taste amazing, as like many brides I had been dieting before the wedding and I wanted my cake to be my reward! And reward it was! We chose 4 different flavours which we obviously taste tested before (taste testing is the BEST part of planning a wedding) and went with Terry's chocolate orange, Chocoholic, Zesty Lemon and Classic Vanilla. All delicious and we had loads to take home with us and I was genuinely upset when we finally finished eating our cake!
From start to finish Lou was amazing and our favourite supplier to work with for our wedding, I can't wait for my husband to order us an anniversary cake from her!

Beautiful cake - taste and looks!

Lou was extremely helpful and helped us pick the perfect flavours for our cake. Everyone commented how beautiful it was and how tasty. We ordered more than we needed and it was all gone! Lou listened to what we wanted, always kept us updated and went above and beyond!

Creatively brilliant and delicious!

We counter ourselves so lucky to find Lou and Bake to the Future after our first cake maker retired before our postponed wedding took place. We had a unique mountain style wedding cake in mind and we’re nearly going to compromise not having that before coming across Lou’s website. She was super responsive and friendly in all her communication first by email and she immediately understood and was delighted by our desire to have a non-traditional wedding cake. She was also really flexible, even though our venue was outside her typical region, she was totally up for doing our cake.

Meeting her to then design the cake further and taste the delicious flavours cemented it for us. She helped to co-create the design, working out how things would go together. Nothing daunted her! And honestly the cake flavours were incredible, so delicious and such a variety. Our guests raved about the cake.

I can only highly recommend Lou, we trusted her throughout the process and she truly delivered what we had envisioned - a special cake that meant a lot to us and was fun in style, and delicious to eat.

Best cake maker around!

Lou was exactly what we were after when designing and creating our wedding cake. From start to finish she went above and beyond especially when our wedding was postponed 4 times due to the pandemic! We wanted a very elaborate cake with lots of detail depicting us as a couple and couldn’t have been happier with the results! The cake was one of the main talking points of the wedding and everyone still comments on it now! Also tasted delicious of course with 4 tiers of different flavours, some of which she’d never done before we asked and they were perfect! Thank you Lou!

Fantastic work, great price and super friendly

Lou was nothing short of phenomenal. She was quick to respond, gave great ideas, let you taste whatever you wanted to make sure it was right for you. Lou kept in contact throughout our order and worked not just with my wife and I, but also with our venue and when they wanted her there by and when the cake needed to be ready.

Lou is absolutely fantastic!

Lou was absolutely amazing! Everything to meeting her and trying her cake samples to seeing our finished wedding cake on the big day was absolutely fantastic. She captured everything we wanted and all of our guests commented how amazing it looked and how delicious it tasted. If you're looking for a cake supplier for your big day, I'd definitely recommend Lou, you really won't be disappointed!

Wedding 2023

We got married in June 2023 and once finding Lou, the hole cake process was the easiest thing about the hole wedding experience she was really knowledgeable when discussing ideas of what could work for our day, theme and in the heat. Our cake was perfect matching our Biscuit themed wedding breakfast and tasted delicious people still tell us how yummy it was!
