A cake filled with passion

Yvonne constructed us a fantastic cake, crafted with skill and passion.

Yvonne was very responsive and inquisitive from the start. We initially reached out with our home-grown cake design which hit things off very well to start (I'd recommend any couple consider designing their own cake).

Her response was excited, and the next step was having some samples to taste. We had samples from Yvonne and 2 other potential cake suppliers, and not only had Yvonne's eccentric attitude encouraged us towards her, but her cake samples (and butter-cream icing!) set her well above the competition. They came quickly, were reasonably priced and gave us plenty to sample (both in quantity of cake and variety of flavours) allowing us to make the best decision we could.

We had occasional communications with Yvonne all the way up to the wedding, as she was both very responsive to our questions and inquisitive to ensure her masterpiece was being made correctly for us.

On the morning of the wedding, Yvonne was promptly on time and setup the cake efficiently, and it looked great! It stood proud all day to the cake cutting, and was absolutely delicious in the evening (and the few evenings to follow!). She had even constructed a log stand for the cake to ensure it was stable and looked just right.

I'd recommend Yvonne and her passion to anyone looking for a great cake for their wedding day - thank you very much!

Beautiful and DELICIOUS cake!

The cake was both stunning AND delicious! We got loads of compliments from guests on how good it was! A number of our guests said it was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. Yvonne delivered it straight to our venue without any worries on our end. It was a showstopper and she totally worked with us to match our vintage cake vibe. Loved it!

Disney Wedding Cake

Wow an awesome lady that made us the most perfect cake. We requested a Disney themed caked and she went above and beyond.
I can’t recommend enough. Tastes beautiful too and was the hot topic at our wedding.
Thank you so very much you made our day even sweeter.

Excellent, efficient and delivered on time

Yvonne was brilliant. She brought us tasters so we could choose our flavour of cake. She made the most beautiful wedding cake with supplementary cupcakes as I’d requested and delivered them to my venue with no stress added. Thoroughly recommend Cakes From the Cottage.

WOW! Cake looked and tasted amazing

I can't thank Yvonne enough for making my wedding cake for me. I reached out to her last minute due to my initial cake maker dropping out. Yvonne was patient with me and answered all my questions, dealt with me wanting to change designs and asking for quotes for each change. I am so thankful to her and my cake turned out amazing! and tasted so good, everyone said how good it tasted. If I have another big event I will be coming back. Thank you so much for making my cake.

We spoke with Yvonne and arranged to meet shortly after to discuss our wedding cake needs, she listened to what we wanted and provided exactly that, the cake was fantastic, couldn't have hoped for anything more.

I served for a wedding cake online and fell in love with this design. My theme was rustic so I was struggling to find my dream wedding cake. I asked if this could be made and made wish came true, I also had cupcakes for my day time guests and they were made online with the rustic theme. The cake was amazing and so many people said it was beautiful and delicious!! It looked amazing in the room with call the other rustic themed items. Many people couldn't believe the detail that had gone into the cake. Thank you so much for making my special day go with ease and no stress!! ??

Most talked about feature of our wedding!

Yvonne is professional and is passionate about what she does. She is creative and an artist when it comes to cake and sugar crafts. I cannot recommend her services enough.

She was able to accommodated my needs of needing to feed 230 + guests with a 4-tier naked cake consisting of chocolate, red velvet, lemon and elderflower, and a gluten free vanilla top tier!

Our wedding cake has by far been the most talked about thing since my wedding a year ago people say how beautiful it looked, how delicious it was to eat and how unique it looked with edible flowers and the 4 tier shape with different flavours.

You won’t regret booking Cakes from the Cottage for your wedding cake.

Best Wedding Cake Ever!

I may be slightly prejudiced as I've only been married once, but Yvonne created an absolutely stunning look for my wedding - five tier traditional wedding cake (funnily enough, the one shown at the top!) The three top tiers were dummies, so we didn't have too much cake, but you really couldn't tell the difference. Yvonne hand-crafted the lilies and I also carried a few of them in my bouquet. The price was ridiculously cheap and the cake was delivered to my reception in one beautiful piece.
So grateful for the tremendous service received - fantastic job (as always, having had other cakes as well!)
