From start to finish Liz’s attention to detail and ability to ensure your wedding cake is special and generally taste out of this world is evident. Upon arriving at Liz’s home for the cake consultation we were immediately met with a clear view of how she worked, how things were priced and guidance for selecting a wedding cake. Liz worked with us to ensure we remained within budget and was very creative in making the cake flow well with are overall decor theme. As a couple you are able to see a clear output of what your cake will look like and you are able to iterate the drawings Liz produces until you arrive at your said cake. I found this extremely unique and valuable because it ensured our cake would be bespoke but also that we would not be surprised on our wedding day. Thank you so much Liz for delivering such a masterpiece on our wedding day.

What a cake! Liz created the most beautiful wedding cake for our winter wedding. She really listened to our thoughts when we first met and designed a really unique cake with so much texture and a look that really felt like us. Not to mention it tasted amazing! The design process to the finished product was so cool to see because she really stayed true to the vision she had. Everyone also said that the cake was simply stunning! Thank you so much – you are incredibly talented!! x

Well, where do I start! From the first tasting and consultation, Liz has been superb, nothing too much trouble. During the consultation, I’d described classic cake with a difference, Liz understood my vision straightway and provided many sketches and recommendation to add character, like rough edges, gold leaf and marbling effect! The sugar flowers which matched my bridal bouquet was beautiful! Every single feature captured, white rose, eucalyptus, brunia balls, and, in such detail! Last but not least, each layer had a different flavour and tasted delicious! Our favourite flavours, passion fruit, red velvet and salted caramel! Thank you Liz once again x
