Thank you Pia for creating a truly wonderful birthday cake for my mother's 90 birthday, it was stunning and truly delicious. The beautiful roses you created and the white chocolate dribble over the whole cake really made it look something fabulous. The little chocolate cupcakes were the best we had ever tasted. Would recommend anyone to have Pia create a cake for you.
Just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for the amazing job you did with our cake (and extras) i am so sorry i didnt get to see you on Friday!!! It truly looked amazing and it was almost too pretty to eat. I absolutely loved it. Everything was perfect and tasted sensational. We are literally saving that moment to eat the carrot cake top!! I feel like i need it to be a particular moment lol going to take some to our minimoon too. You truly are such a lovely talented lady and i shall pass on your details to EVERYONE who needs cake in their lives lol Thanks so much Pia, best day of my life and you were a huge part of it. Xxxx
Pia and her team created a fabulous cake for our wedding last month. Not only did it look amazing it also tasted delicious and we had many compliments about it from our guests. Was great to be able to try different sponge and filling flavours before making our decision. It was also lovely to be sent a photo of the cake in progress a couple of days before the wedding. I would recommend without hesitation and definite 5 star rating!
I am so pleased that we came across Vanilla Pod Bakery. From the moment we met Pia and realised that she knew exactly what we wanted when we explained our vision with our bespoke cake to her I was so comfortable that our cake would be petfect and that was before even trying some of the flavours! Everything from the communication, the tasting session the drafts right through to delivery was so warm and professional. What a wonderful surprise to walk in to our wedding breakfast and seeing our ideas created in to a cake that was far better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much Pia and team for such a heartfelt creation which contributed so much to the overwhelming experience of our whole day xx you guys are awesome! Xx
We came to Pia with the ambition to do our wedding cake a little differently, traditional, beautiful and elegant on the outside but yummy and quirky and so us on the inside! We ended up with a beautiful Naked cake designed by Pia with three outrageously yummy flavours: Snickers, Oreo and Classic Victoria Sandwich. We ordered the cake to serve 120 portions, even though we only had 55 guests… every last piece went! Every single guest commented how yummy the cake was, all debating the quirky flavours and laughing at how us it was! We honestly could not recommend Pia enough, she is so lovely, cool, calm and passionate about cakes! The cake tasting was a dream, and she truly bought all of our thoughts to life better than we could have ever imagined! THANK YOU THANK YOU Pia, for making us the yummiest cake of our dreams! Xxx
Pia kindly make our wedding cake and I cannot tell you what a wonderful job she did. It looked and tasted amazing. From the cake tasting to the card we got as a thank you. She made the whole wedding cake experience so lovely, I cannot thank you enough xxx
Simply amazing from start to finish. From the initial consultation to our big day we was looked after completely. In the end our cake both looked and tasted amazing! Thanks so so much and I couldn’t make a stronger positive recommendation.
I just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful cakes you have made as part of our celebrations for my mother's 90th. Yesterday's cupcakes were another triumph and the guests were thrilled with them. As you know both the celebration cake and the weekend cupcakes were also a huge success. Thank you for being so efficient and organised too - so helpful when you have lots of planning on the go. I am sure we will be in touch again for another cake - until then my thanks
