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 was absolutely amazing throughout the whole wedding process. From cake tasting, to refining ideas to creating our beautiful three tier gluten free wedding cake, she was outstanding. We would highly recommend Pia for any special occasion!
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!
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for our wedding cake! IT WAS AMAZING! We received so many comments on the look of the cake and even more comments on how they tested, I managed to get a salted caramel cupcake and it was just like a remembered - Delicious! All the cupcakes went on the day of the wedding and then on the Sunday we had the top tier (carrot cake) and that all went as well and again that was truly amazing! Certainly no wastage as every crumb was eaten! Thank you so much for the 4 other little cupcakes, there were a life saver of Monday as so had no food in the house and may have been breakfast haha! Thank you for all of your hard work on the day and leading up to it, all of your cakes are truly out of this world and hand on heart the best cakes I have ever eaten! Thank you again Pia for everything and I am sure I will see you soon ?
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!!
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 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 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.
