Wedding cakes should be as delicious as well as beautiful. We will take you step by step through your initial thoughts to the the final creation with care and as much excitement as you have for your special day.

You’re at that stage in the planning of your wedding, special event or birthday celebration when a cake is required that is going to both wow and amaze your guests.

    The sweetest experience

    Nothing less than five stars across the board for Pippa, who has been wonderful since day one. We couldn't have asked for better guidance, flexibility and reassurance during the whole process, especially dealing with postponing our wedding due to COVID. She's been patient and kind and was polite enough to sit and let us stuff our faces with samples during a Zoom consultation! Her recipes are divine - you couldn't ask for tastier cake - and her creativity in designing is second to none. We've had the best experience. Thank you, Pippa!

    Sugar and Spiced Cakes's reply:

    Sarah and Adam, you're so kind. It is such a privilege to be a part of someone's most special day. The memories that are created will last a lifetime and to be a part of that is just so special. Over the moon you had a fantastic day and even more so that your cake went down a treat!! Pxx

    Amazing cake

    I would strongly recommend sugar and spiced cakes. Pippa managed to make our wedding day feel special again despite numerous disappointments from elsewhere. She always responded promptly and was so flexible to all the unexpected changes we experienced. The cake tasted delicious, looked amazing and Pippa was an absolute delight to work with.

    Dear Steph,
    I'm so pleased you had a special day and feel very privileged to have been a part of your memories.

    Delicious and beautiful wedding cake!

    We would highly recommend Sugar and Spiced Cakes! Pippa made us a 3 tier wedding cake, vegan cupcakes (as an alternative for our vegan guests), and cookies as wedding favours. Right from the start Pippa was so friendly and helpful. She sent out slices of cake in the post so we could do a tasting consultation via Zoom (Covid!) and we were immediately sold as they were all so delicious (we chose lemon, carrot and biscoff)! We got a design drawn up for us, and 3 designs for the cookie favours to choose from. Pippa managed to bring our vision to life with her creativity and skill and our wedding cake was so beautiful, as were the cookies! All our guests commented on how lovely the cake looked and how good it tasted - and the cookies went down a treat! Photos don't do it justice. Pippa always replied to our messages promptly, was very professional and friendly, and was a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for someone to make your wedding cake, look no further!

    Sugar and Spiced Cakes's reply:

    You're too kind. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your day. It's always so humbling creating something that will be a lasting memory for couples and it makes it all worth while when all have enjoyed not only the look but more importantly the taste!!! Thank you too for allowing me to pinch an idea you used going forward!!

    Above and beyond

    We first met Pippa from Sugar and Spiced at a wedding fair in 2019 before we booked our venue but held onto her details because of the delicious sample we tried. In 2020 we contacted her for a consultation, and we're blown away by the effort she puts in - a full afternoon tea! Afterwards, she sent us the design of our cake and it was clear she understood exactly what we wanted. Throughout the planning, she has been in contact offering us support when we were dealing with a huge amount of uncertainty and happily moved to our new date when we postponed. On the day the cake looked stunning and tasted amazing. A fantastic and talented baker - Sugar and Spiced will definitely be our go-to cake supplier in the future! Thank you

    Sugar and Spiced Cakes's reply:

    Thank you so much Natalie. I'm so very pleased all your expectations were met and that you had an amazing day. It was certainly a showstopper - so much so it's being repeated next year - you've started a trend!!
    Looking forward to producing other celebrations and milestones for you in the future.
    Pip

    Beautiful Wedding Cake

    We received excellent service from Pippa, from the initial enquiry to the planning, quoting and delivery on the day. She provided us with clear information on the pricing structure and made sample cakes available to us despite all of the difficulties of lockdown. We wanted something a bit different and more personal and she certainly delivered by creating a really beautiful design. When we tasted the samples we had some difficulty in choosing one flavour as they were all so delicious! Would highly recommended to any couple.

    Sugar and Spiced Cakes's reply:

    Dear Catriona,
    Thank you so much for your lovely words and taking the time to write a review it is much appreciated. I'm so pleased you had a great experience with us and more importantly you had an amazing day. Boris and Beryl are still talked about here!!
    Kind Regards


    Pippa

    Amazing lady, amazing cakes AMAZING EXPERIENCE😊

    This lady is absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better person to do my wedding cake. My wedding day wasn't quite as smooth sailing as I originally planned due to covid.. However I met Pippa at one of the first wedding fairs my husband (fiancé at the time) and I went to at Mercure Hotel Tunbridge Wells. We hit it off instantly with how friendly and chatty she was plus her samples were already so good, that me and my other half were wondering if we wore a hat, could we sneak in and get some more samples.. 😂 We got an appointment booked in right away. On the day we met with Pippa we had some cakes and we got down to designing our cake. I found a photo online of one I liked which Pippa was happy to make, but it lacked the personal touch of me and my husband (which was actually a pretty big factor in our wedding day) So we ended up talking about our interesting and whether we would be having a traditional wedding and low and behold.. Pippa managed to create a masterpiece. She even managed to draw an idea of the vision she had and it looked amazing. Now while we are still yet to have this cake, this is because this was a big 3 tier fancy cake, that we will want to have when we have our reception in a year or 2. However we then liaised with Pippa as we were decided that due to covid, we would have a smaller wedding but we still wanted a cake to at least give me that almost normal wedding day. Straight away again we had a call with Pippa and she managed to create another masterpiece that looks so beautiful and tasted so nice too. Plus Pippa hasn't only been our cake lady, she made some amazing ginger biscuits in the shape and decorated like penguins (a Christmas present for my husband, as they are his favourite animal) she also made us some amazing wedding favours too. They were heart shaped biscuits with purple icing on with the words love. They tasted so good and they matched our wedding cake so nicely. All our guests really loved them and we had enough to take home for my niece and nephews (as they couldn't be there due to only allowed 13 guests) Honestly I couldn't be more grateful to Pippa for all her help. It has been a rough time since my husband and I were on our 5th attempt at getting married.. Yet no matter what pippa was always there to help or have a natter with when emotions were high.. And even though we had to constantly move dates or any questions we had, she was more than willing to do what she could. Definitely have found more than just someone who did our wedding cake, we found a friend and our forever baker/cake lady 😂 we have even already ordered more cakes... I think we are obsessed. However again if you are looking for a really lovely cake lady, who gives you a wonderful experience, a proper personalised cake for you and your partner and all round friend for a decent price.. I honestly and wholeheartedly recommend Pippa at Sugar and Spiced Cakes. Thank you again! You won't be disappointed with the magical touch and taste her creations have 💜 xx

    Sugar and Spiced Cakes's reply:

    Wow - thank you, thank you, thank you. What amazing words and so kind. It was truly special to finally create a smaller but equally special masterpiece for your day and I'm so pleased you have all enjoyed it. Here's to the party!!

Not only did you achieve a unique design you took the care to make the experience so personal and easy. It was a real shame to cut it but glad we did as it tasted amazing. Thank you again.”
