    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.

    Dear Abinaya,
    Thank you for your review, but most of all thank you for asking me to be a part of your special day, Thrilled to be a part of your wedding. Thank you.

    Lovely company

    Excellent service from this company. Yvonne really looked after us and the cake she made tasted lovely and looked beautiful. On the day Yvonne took the time to set up the cake just how we wanted. Beautiful addition to our wedding reception. Would definitely recommend.

    Cakes from the Cottage's reply:

    Thank you Michelle for your lovely review. I must say I was encouraged by your relatives, guests and husband cheering me on and making 'oo' 'aah' comments as I worked. You are both obviously well loved and there was a warmth and sense of joy at the venue. I am pleased that you are pleased and I wish for you both a long and happy future. Thank you for making me a part of your special celebration.

    Amazing!!

    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.

    Cakes from the Cottage's reply:

    I love a challenge and when you said you had 230 guests I had one! I am pleased that it caused a stir at your wedding and was enjoyed by all, but I am particularly pleased that it worked out the way that you wanted it to look.

    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!)

    Cakes from the Cottage's reply:

    So pleased that you were pleased. Thank you for review.
