Rachel made an amazing cake for Playbox Toddler Group to celebrate our 25th birthday. It was such a shame to have to cut in to it but it was sooo yummy that it was worth it. I particularly liked the f...act that one layer was vanilla sponge,jam and cream and one layer was the most delicious chocolate cake- my favourite. Something for everyone to enjoy, which they did, as every last piece was eaten :). Thank you so much Rachel for all your hard work. See More

with a loose description of a cake design for pink & girlie we have two very impressed 4 year olds. the pink and girlie definitely achieved, together with amazing details, glitter and two models on th...e top which both girls instantly indentified as themselves and a princess and frog theme which was an instant hit. it was the talking point of the party, but not only did it look beautiful but tasted divine too. thank you xx See More

Absolutely beautiful wedding cake made by Rachel for my special day! I gave her a general idea of the sea theme with edible shells and she made a cake that was absolutely perfect, and everyone comment...ed how beautiful it was!! Perfection itself, I will definitely have no hesitation in recommending Rachel to anyone requiring a cake for any occasion, and will certainly make use of her skills in the future xx See More

Rachel is a very talented and imaginative cake decorator. Her cakes are so beautiful and realalistic it's hard to beleive that there are decorations on the cakes that are not real.
Nothing is too hard... for her to undertake. See More

Rachel is an amazingly talented cake maker. Her cake for my Mum's 70th was not only absolutely beautiful and exactly what I asked for, but it also tasted delicious. I cannot recommend Rachel highly enough.

Just wanted to say that Rachel made my mum the most amazing Christmas cake toppers. It was an entire nativity scene and each piece was fantastic and so well decorated. Everybody that saw them loved th...em! And she finished them and delivered them early for me too. See More

I have been lucky enough to sample several of Rachel's cakes. They have always tasted gorgeous and her icing-work is stunning!

Just a reminder (as I have had a lot of enquiries recently) I am no longer taking any bookings for cakes

Hello. I have decided I am as fully booked as I wish to be for the year and after that will be taking a bit of a break to spend some time with my family so I am... not taking any bookings at this time. I will of course be completing all confirmed bookings for which a deposit has been received. Rachel x

You've got to be someone really special for me to make you a cake these days as I am not taking bookings any more. I do however have a few cakes coming up in the next month for close family and friends.

2 lovely girlies are getting cakes this week. Both very different. I have just finished them and I think I may be a little in love with both cakes I can't wait to show you later in the week when they have seen their cakes!

I haven't posted any cake pictures for ages as I've been busy with lots of other things and therefore haven't made any cakes. This was one I made this week - to celebrate the official opening of my sons' school refurbished library. It's based on a design by Lindy Smith but has been adapted to include the school uniform of Starbeck Primary School and the mixed up fairy tales books of the author Hilary Robinson who gave a fabulous presentation this morning and cut the ribbon for us! All edible. Lemon and Orange madeira cake with lemon curd buttercream filling. All decoration hand-made in sugarpaste and sugar modelling paste.
