The following was a review that Rachael & Drew Carr sent to me after I had made their wedding cake. It was so lovely to receive such a beautiful testimonial…
I first met Vicki at the Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding Fayre in January 2011. I was attracted to her stand because I was impressed by the variety of cakes on show. There were ones with immaculate piping, ruffles and flowers that were so realistic I couldn’t tell if they were made from sugar or if they were real. She had some cake samples to try and they tasted amazing and as I got talking to Vicki I knew she was the cake maker for us.
I took Drew (future hubby) to meet Vicki at her house to talk all things cake. We were welcomed with the smell of cake baking and sat down with a brew to discuss our ideas. Before we talked about cake Vicki took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from our wedding so she was best placed to create something fabulous and bespoke for us. I had a very fixed idea on what I wanted from my wedding cake (sponge not fruit cake, different flavours, rustic, three tiers), and it wasn’t at all traditional, but that didn’t faze Vicki at all. We spent time sketching out ideas and left with a few decisions to make and an appointment to go back 2 months before the wedding.
The next appointment was a tasting to pick our flavours and it was one of the best wedding preparation moments we had. The cakes were all gorgeous and picking the three flavours was probably the toughest decision we had to make but we went with the carrot cake, limoncello and jaffa cake.
On the day of the wedding Vicki delivered the cake to the Fisherman’s Retreat for us and I asked her not to send us a picture – I wanted the surprise, and it was brilliant. I was so happy and pleased with the result as was Drew. The cake was a real talking point at the wedding because it looked so beautiful and everyone got to do their own mini taste test when it was cut up.
I can’t recommend Vicki enough. As a customer you receive an excellent service and value for money from your supplier but for us Vicki very quickly became a friend because she is so warm and friendly. She is also talented, creative, and flexible and your cake will look and taste amazing. What more could you ask for?
