Absolutely perfect wedding cake. Pia is a joy to work with. She got us to a tee, and created the most gorgeous cake. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Pia baked a beautiful cake for my daughter Georgie's 21st, with many coloured layers with macarons and chocolates. I loved receiving the emails keeping me updated as the cake layers came out of the oven one by one, just perfect.
Pia created the wedding cake of our dreams, different flavours in each tier, all of our guests commented on how beautiful it was and the flavours were incredible. Thank you Pia for helping make our day everything we wanted.
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.
Pia created a show stopper of a cake for our wedding in September! She worked so hard to ensure our vision was put in reality and reworked the design until it was perfect. The massive 4 tier structure took a long time to create to get all the angles completely right. It turned into a beautiful masterpiece that not many other cake makers was willing to attempt. Thank you so much Pia. Xxx
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 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
The cake was brilliant and feed all the guests on the night and the following day at a little party we hosted at The Porch House. Sadly we forgot what remained there when we departed Sunday morning as wanted to freeze a taste for our one year anniversary… but I think we will just need to order another smaller version next year from you! Thank you Pia for EVERYTHING. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope we can stay in touch. I would happily recommend you to anyone getting married in the area or anyone getting married full stop! Thank you for making our day so very special.
