  • Thank you so much for our beautiful cake last weekend. It was just stunning and so much better than we had ever imagined! We asked my sister to keep back a slice from each layer so that we could try it, and I'm glad that we did as the top layer was gone in an instant! Each layer was gorgeous! Such a lovely consistency and amazing flavours. Thank you so much. Xx
