Pia and her team at the The Vanilla Pod Bakery were fantastic with my order. I needed an eggless cake for the wedding, which I thought I would struggle to find, but luckily I found Pia! Right from the start of the process of deciding the design and flavours to the end of collecting the cake in it's final form, Pia was really professional, helpful and full of good advice. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed the cake and said how tasty it was. I would definitely recommend The Vanilla Pod Bakery to anyone looking to order a cake for their special occasion.

Vanilla Pod bakery to provide cupcakes for my wedding in August last year. I like the fact that they used local produce and free range eggs, I think it is important to support local business.
Pia and her team were very professional and nothing was too much trouble with regard to choosing cupcake, flavours, coloured cases and other various options. I changed my mind on a number of occasions as to what flavour combinations to have as they was so much choice. My mum and I had to pleasure of tasting a few at a meeting we had and they were delicious!!!!
I would highly recommend Vanilla Pod to anyone having a special occasion, no only do they look lovely they taste great too. Just one thing order more than you think as all your guests and family with love them and I will say one is not enough!!!!!
Thanks Pia and Vanilla Pod team. x
