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!
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.
Pia was absolutely fantastic in helping my husband and I with our wedding cake choices. We had no idea what to expect and we were thrilled with how easy the whole process was. Not only is Pia very helpful and professional, but the Vanilla Pod Bakery produces delicious cakes. Thank you so much!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
