Best experience
We met Lee after my partner found out about her store on Facebook. She was very pleasant from the start and listened attentively to what plans we had and also what artistry she thought would be best for our ideal cake. I can even remember the warmth we felt every time we would pop by to the store . As well as the moment in which we told her we wanted to have a Penguin cake topper ,she totally loved the idea. On the day everyone loved the cake’s design and flavour. Definitely worth every

Most amazing wedding cake!!
Lee was so brilliant. We met her at a wedding fair and after having a short chat we knew we wanted our wedding cake made by Fondant and Apron Strings. The little things were all taken care of and every effort was put in to ensure we got the perfect cake. Plus the cake tasted AMAZING! We would definitely recommend Fondant and Apron Strings to anyone ten times over. Such a wonderful experience :)

As soon as the couple find their venue they will contact us to see if we have the time slot available. We will then make an appointment for their wedding cake consultation where they will try some fresh made cake samples of their choice. The couple will give me some of their wedding ideas , i.e. colour theme , etc and we will have some cake sketches ready for them to look at. These sketches are the start of the design process.
