Thanks a lot for making the brilliant violin cake. Matt was thrilled to bits with it and couldn't stop talking about it. Everyone at the party was amazed how real it looked. And it tasted good too! Lots of people commented on the shading effect on the case. They were very impressed.

Dear Sheila We wanted to say a huge thank you for the wedding cake you made for Pete and I. The sugar paste figures were certainly a talking point amongst the guests and we loved them. Everyone enjoyed the cup cakes and most of them were eaten on the day. The top fruit cake is also delicious. Once again thank you for creating a cake that was exactly what we wanted. Please feel free to use this email for your testimonial page. We are looking forward to seeing the photos that Paul took. He did an amazing job throughout the day 🙂

Hello – I would just like to say a huge thank you for the two cakes that you made for my daughter’s 21st. Both went down a treat, and everybody remarked on how gorgeous the cakes were! Jessica adored the decoration, which included an edible picture of her favourite toy ‘Tigger’ along with poppies symbolizing the date she was born. Lovely and scrumptious! Thank you once again!

Emma Wain

Dear Sheila, You made a poppy themed cake for my wife’s 50th – I picked it up on Saturday just gone. I thought you would like to know – my wife loved it and all who came to her birthday party said how delicious the cake tasted and how elegant and beautiful the decorations were – making the cake really special. Thank you for all your hard work and I will certainly return if I need a cake again and will recommend you to anyone who asks. All the best

I said I would do you a testimonial and here it is – thanks again so much, all best wishes, Kate I rang Sheila at the last minute and miraculously she was able to provide fantastic bespoke balloon decorations for my Mother’s 91st Birthday Party at incredibly short notice. The balloon decorations made the party even more wonderful for us… so thank you Sheila and Cakes Etc.

I needed a special birthday cake and everyone who I contacted turned me down claiming that they were too busy. At last minute, Cakes Etcetera was recommended to me by a colleague so I called and spoke with Shelia. Unlike the others she did not turn me away. She asked what my requirements were and in less than five days my birthday cake was designed to perfection and beautifully decorated. Shelia is warm, friendly and very professional. You can guarantee that she will do whatever it takes to make sure her customers are satisfied and that your occasion is very special. The cake was an absolute delight; light, moist, flavourful but not overwhelming. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend Cakes Etcetera if you need cakes for any occasion. You will not be disappointed! I would like to extend a special thanks to Shelia because she saved my birthday. I really wanted my special bespoke cake and she did not fail me. Thank you. 24th April 2015

My name is Karen Jowett and I collected a Basque cake from you on 1st April for my husband’s 40th birthday. I just wanted to email you to say it was absolutely fantastic and thank you very very much, he loved it and it was worth every penny to see him smile and laugh as much as he did. Everyone at his party remarked how good it looked and how lovely it tasted. Unfortunately it has changed my buying pattern now and the bakers I have been using for years have just lost my cake business as its all coming to you in the future. Thank you very very much and feel free to use this email for your testimonials page on the website. Wonderful wonderful wonderful. Thank you so much.

Thank you Very Much for the beautiful birthday cake you made for Isabelle’s 4th birthday. It was exactly what she wanted and tasted amazing. She had a great birthday party and the cake made it complete! November 2008


Just a quick note to say a ’Huge Thank You’ for the cake you supplied to us for our wedding. I have lost count how many people commented how good it was, and I quote, it was “THE BEST CAKE” they had ever tasted. Everyone was asking who had made it for us. I have to admit it was gorgeous though, there wasn’t a spare piece left!! Thank you once again, we would happily provide any further recommendations should you require them!!

Attached is a photograph of Polly’s cake which I got safely to Reighton Manor House (just by Filey)! It was a HUGE success and all the adults just loved the decoration and the cake itself. Polly was enchanted and called it her Princess Cake and she kept going up to each new arrival at the house(we were all turning up that day), taking them by the hand and saying “Would you like to come and see my cake?” We had pink everything and she was in heaven! Thank you so much. I shall be back to order for the New Year party to celebrate my sister’s 70th and her and my brother-in-law’s 40th wedding anniversary. Again in stately surroundings but this time near Penrith

Best Wishes, Jo James, 2nd August 2013

Hi Shiela, Just a quick email to say a big thank you for the brilliant Radley cake you made for me at very short notice. My wife was absolutely over the moon with it, so much so that she has only just had the heart to cut it up! Everybody who saw it thought it was brilliant. Once again many thanks. Mark

Hi Sheila, Here you go! The four women in the second photograph (one of whom is my sister) have known each other for 50 years. They all met at Dorset House in Oxford where they went to do Occupational Therapy. The cake was a absolute triumph!! There were 45 people for the weekend and when the cake appeared in the afternoon as we were setting up for the big dinner (70th Birthday and 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration), there were tears (from my sister) and exclamations of disbelief and endless oo-ing and ahh-ing. Even the men were captivated. People kept saying to me how wonderful it was and how it must have taken me ages. I was tempted to take the credit but managed not to! Having the individual cakes was brilliant because noone wanted to cut the cake on the Saturday night. Instead it sat resplendant in a place of glory and, as the weekend party dispersed after a huge Sunday breakfast, baby cakes were wrapped in table napkins and born off in delight by each and every guest. Thank you so much yet again!
