Gorgeous cake in looks and taste. Karen is so easy to work with, even with my seemingly odd requests of what I wanted on my sons Christening cake. Everyone was really impressed, and I loved it. Thank ...you so much. I hope we can order again in the future See More

We didn't even meet Karen but the communication was easy and straight forward. We were impressed with the photos on the website and took a gamble on the taste being as good. Our beautiful cake didn't ...disappoint it was fabulous. Highly recommend. Paul and Louise Lindsay @ Wynyard Hall 27/08/15 See More

Gluten free cake anyone?! I've been doing a trial run for a future event so if anyone could use this for a celebration this weekend or just because... please let me know! It's a gluten free chcolate sponge with vanilla butter icing, decorated with white chocolate & freeze dried raspberries, gold leaf, raspberry and coconut meringues and delicious macarons from Robineau Patisserie...

As my husband Kevin is very courageously taking to the skies tomorrow to do a tandem skydive to raise money for the charity Breast Cancer Now anything you're willing to offer will be passed on as a donation to this very worthwhile cause...

Please save me from having to eat too much cake this weekend!!😋❤️ Thank you x

2016 turned out to be a very different year than I anticpated this time last year, cancer seems to have affected so many lives including mine and I am so very grateful to be on the path to recovery... I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all of you who have taken the time to follow my work and support what I have done over the last 13 years, I'm not ready to take on the challenges of the cake world just yet but who knows what the coming year will bring... Here's to a much brighter, positive and healthier 2017 for all of you (and me!). Much love xx
