I just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful cakes you have made as part of our celebrations for my mother's 90th.

Yesterday's cupcakes were another triumph and the guests were thrilled with them. As you know both the celebration cake and the weekend cupcakes were also a huge success.

Thank you for being so efficient and organised too - so helpful when you have lots of planning on the go.

Pia and her team baked a beautiful cake for my daughter Georgie's 21st, with many coloured layers with macarons and chocolates. I loved receiving the emails keeping me updated as the cake layers came out of the oven one by one, just perfect.

Thank you Pia and your team for creating a truly wonderful birthday cake for my mother's 90 birthday, it was stunning and truly delicious. The beautiful roses you created and the white chocolate dribble over the whole cake really made it look something fabulous. The little chocolate cupcakes were the best we had ever tasted. Would recommend anyone to have Pia create a cake for you.

Thank you Pia and your team, my daughters had fabulous birthday celebrations! Your cupcakes were divine and the girls, their friends and their teachers loved them! 
We look forward to having your cakes at many more celebrations in the future!

Bought my girlfriend a dozen cupcakes for her birthday. Oh my goodness were they good. For £3 a cake it's a steal. Better than any I've bought commercially by a stretch. Can't wait for the next excuse to buy more!
