My husband organised for Avril to make a cake for my 40th birthday as a surprise. I was presented with a fantastic cake depicting myself sat on a log with my three dogs. It was absolutely perfect and was the tastiest fruit cake we had ever tasted. The attention to detail was amazing, even down to my wellies and the colour of the dogs leads. Brilliant!!

I hope I am ok to post this - not trying to tout for business or anything, just genuinely want to recommend a lovely cake maker! Hope it doesn't break any forum rules.
OH and I went for a sampling session today for our potential cupcakes with a top tier. Lots of companies quoted us £500 or more. We were panicking and luckily my uncle offered to pay up to £300 for our cake yayayay! But for just over this price Avril is going to do 120 cupcakes, huge top tier, painstakingly decorate it with our sunflowers, deliver, set it up, provide cake stand hire - everything we wanted. For around £50 more she is also going to handmake chocolate favours, in our colours, wrapped, ribbon and with a hand written note. INCREDIBLE value, amazing flavours, wonderul lady, friendly family. I am over the moon, the samples she freshly baked for us were amazing and her attention to detail was astounding. We felt very happy and comfortable with her, and her work (on facebook as 'creative cakes and ideas' and the ones we saw ready for collection) speak for themselves.

"" Avril has made 2 cakes for me so far... and both have been absolutely stunning. She is an amazing talent, and I would highly recommend her. I will be getting another cake off her very soon, and I know it will be just as amazing as the last two, tasting just as good as they look. Wouldn't think to look anywhere else for cakes now! xxx

Avril recently revamped one of my wedding cake tiers for my daughters christening cake. We spoke about what she could do for me and I was so looking forward to the results from what she described. I did no know exactly what to expect but when I saw the finished result it was beyond my expectations. I was so pleased the cake was wonderful and beautiful.
Thank you Avril, would defo use and reccommend Avril to anyone. xxx

I got to know Avril's mum from her previous employment and we got chatting about cakes. She gave me Avril's details and I got in touch for, initially, two cakes. However, I had wanted a cake for a 65th birthday as well but with just 2 weeks until the birthday, assumed I had left it too late to place an order for this. However, Avril said it was possible and to my surprise, she got a cheeky novel cake ready for me to collect within a week and a half. That was a sponge cake and was absolutely delicious.

The next two cakes were fruit cakes - one for my mum's 60th, the other for my father-in-law's 65th birthday. The cakes were very moist and each design represented the person they were meant for. My mum, who used to make cakes herself until ill health prevented her from carrying on, even admitted that she, herself, had never made a cake so moist and tasty (and my mum's cakes were good).

I have now ordered a fourth cake for my 40th birthday and I think I have given Avril quite a challenge but I am sure she'll create something amazing for me.

Her cakes are amazing and I would definitely recommend her.

Hi Avril, you did my son Alfie's Christening Cake last May which was amazing. It's my mums 60th Birthday at the end of the year. How far in advance would I need to be in touch for you to make this? X

Hi Avril,

Apologies about the delay in emailing you - its been a mad week after the wedding.

Just wanted to email you to thank you for the cake! It was GORGEOUS!!!! Could not have asked for it to look any nicer!

We are still eating it a week on as it was massive, so if i look like the size of a bus soon, you know why. The fruit cake was to die for, everyone commented on how nice it looked and tasted - a true testimony to your work.

I have attached a pic of the cake incase you want to upload it to your website?

We'll be in touch after christmas to ask you to do our babies christening cake, if that is ok? could you email us over prices? we only want one tier this time, square cake (as easier to cut) with some decoration, fruit cake obviously as that was our favourite.

Thanks ever so much, again! We were made up!

Kindest regards

Tracey and James Ashton

I contacted Avril after looking through her Facebook page, wondering if i would be possible to make a Cookie Monster cake for my Partner's birthday. With only about 3 weeks until the day, I wasn't sure if it would be possible, but Avril said it would be no problem, as all cakes are baked fresh!
In the end, she made me a giant Cookie Monster cupcake, and to say I was pleased with the result would be an understatement...it was absolutely fantastic!! It looked amazing, the presentation was amazing, attention to detail was perfect. It felt like such a shame we had to cut it to eat it!
Although once we did...WOW. The sponge was so moist, and the flavours were fab!
I would definitely recommend Avril, and I will be sure to continue to order cakes with her. She has a wonderful talent and is so friendly and approachable, it makes the whole process and wonderfully pleasant one.

Thanks again Avril! x

Avril made 2 cakes, one for my son's 21st birthday and the other for my daughter's 18th birthday.

My son is mad about boxing and Avril made a boxing ring on top of the cake and a model of my son sitting on the canvas with boxing gloves on and the 'thrown in towel' across his lap.

For my daughter's cake Avril made a model of her stood up in her emerald green prom dress and an adjacent handbag (one of her passions!)

The attention to detail on both cakes was fantastic, so much so that Avril looked at photo's of them both on Facebook and replicated their red hair and the good looks that they get from their father (a.k.a me!!)

Everyone who has seen the cakes has said WOW! and I can confirm that they taste good also.

I would definately recommend Avril for her attention to detail and friendly approach to your requirements for such a special occasion.
