Wedding Cake

Wow, what can I say?! Rachael is a genius and so brilliant at what she does. She created our wedding cake back in May and it was everything I wanted and more. All the guests absolutely loved it, so much so that the one flavour I chose was gone before I managed to get some!
Noone would have known it was gluten free, which we didn't tell them anyway, but if you need gluten free cakes be rest assured noone would know the difference!!
As well as being an amazing baker, she hand delivered my cake all the way to North Lincolnshire taking all stresses away from us 🩵
Thank you so much again Rachael, love The Knaptons xxx

Soo delicious and amazing supplier

Rachael’s service was excellent and gave us such an easy and professional wedding cake experience. The consultation call was really friendly and useful for making decisions about our fully gluten free cake flavours. The cake was delivered in beautiful condition, was so delicious and all our guests kept raving about its moistness after the event too! Would really recommend her service if you are looking for a wedding cake or wedding favours. We chose cupcakes for our wedding favours and again, they went down an absolute treat. Thank you so much ShirleyRae’s!

Beautiful cakes and Gluten free !

Rachel was amazing, we didn’t really know what we wanted but Rachel took the time to list to ideas and build our beautiful cake and dessert table! The best part was the tasting box, it was very hard to choose as all the flavours were amazing. The dessert table and cake looked amazing on the day so much so all the cakes and brownies were eaten up by our guests going back for more ! All cakes were gluten free as I am coeliac myself, no one was any the wiser! We even had some dairy free cake for Dairy allergies/vegans.
I will be ordering from Rachel again for occasions and would highly recommend Shirley Raes as a supplier, especially for allergies.
