Pia and her team created our wonderful Wedding cake recently. Pia was easy to correspond with and helped us to create the cake we wanted. We were able to select our favourite flavours from a huge list of options and also the design. The cake looked and tasted amazing and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pia and The Vanilla Pod Bakery to others. The sweet little cupcakes were an added bonus treat given to us on our day which we took away and enjoyed on our honeymoon. Thanks x
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.
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 created the most perfect two tier chocolate red velvet and vanilla buttercream wedding cake for us, which was more than we could ever have hoped for. She also went above and beyond anything we expected, from sourcing specific foliage to dress the cake, to spending extra time at the venue building the cake, for which we are incredibly grateful. To top it all off, Pia provided us with a box of cupcakes as a gift on the wedding day. Needless to say, they did not hang around for long! To the detriment of our waistlines, we will now be regular customers of The Vanilla Pod Bakery!!
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
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
Pia and her team were amazing. We got married three weeks ago and they made me the most beautiful cake. They listened and followed all of my instructions. I even asked the team to make me these chocolate covered strawberries in light pink and white and they were amazing too. The best part was that Pia surprised me with four cupcakes with the chocolate covered strawberries! It was divine! Thank you Pia for giving me a dream cake at my wedding. Highly recommend The Vanilla Pod Bakery!
Pia was fantastic from the very beginning and we knew we had found the right person to make our wedding cake from our initial meeting. The cake tasting was one of our favourite experiences of our Wedding planning and it was so hard to choose just 3 flavours from all of the delicious options available. Pia kept in touch with us as it got closer to the date of the Wedding which was very reassuring and I felt that she really cared about making our cake. When we saw the cake for the first time in the Ballroom at Manor by the Lake we were absolutely delighted and it tasted as beautiful as it looked. We would not hesitate to recommend Pia and The Vanilla Pod Bakery to anyone who is looking for a special occasion cake - Thank you so much.
