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.
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.
We asked Vanilla Pod Bakery to make our wedding cake for our wedding at The Barn at Upcote- Pia and the team came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed!! We had a lovely cake tasting with Pia where we got to try lots of delicious flavours and discuss in detail the design of our cake. Pia and her team stayed in touch with us over the months, making sure to finalise all the details a few weeks before and even send us a sneak peak of the cake-making process which was such a nice touch. The wedding cake Pia created was absolutely perfect - it looked beautiful and tasted amazing. She even made some gluten free cupcakes for my sister so she wasn't left out on the day (and she said they tasted great too!) Thank you so much!
Bought my girlfriend a dozen cupcakes for her birthday. Oh my goodness were they good. For £3 a cake it's a steal. Better than any I've bought commercially by a stretch. Can't wait for the next excuse to buy more. Thanks Pia.
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
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
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 made me some wonderful cupcakes for my baby shower with apple and cinnamon, nutella and vanilla cupcakes. Not only were they delicious but beautiful as well - many guests went back to try each flavour! Thank you for such amazing cakes, will definitely be back!
