Wonderful cake
We got married in October and our cake was sourced by my mother in law. She had an in depth consultation with The Frostery to design a truly personal and unique cake. They even discreetly incorporated a gold ring that we had, that is family tradition and has appeared on our family’s wedding cakes for years. We chose tradition fruit cake with a modern marble effect design. The cake was delicious and not dry at all, everyone said how much they enjoyed it.

The only cake designer I will ever use
Suzanne was absolutely a delight to work with. She knew what I wanted and envisaged for my cake but she made it better! She added touches to it that I didn’t even think of and the cake turned out more fabulous then I ever imagined. Her cakes taste even better than they look if that is even possible! They’re moist with the perfect amount of sweetness. Even her fondant is delicious! She is the only cake designer I will ever use. Photo by Daniel Murrientes

From the beginning...
From the beginning; the consultation and booking process to the end; confirmation and delivery process of the cake, everything was so easy, hassle free and relaxed. All that a stressed bride to be could ask for. Nothing was too much trouble, and communication with Suzanne was so easy. Her work is absolutely stunning and so personal. Would recommend her to all my friends and family.

Suzanne is extremely approachable...
Suzanne is extremely approachable, professional and friendly. From first entering her shop she made us feel very welcome. Suzanne always has a smile on her face. Her staff are very professional too. Nothing is too much trouble, her work speaks for itself. You just know you're going to be extremely happy with the cake. Not only the design of the cake but also the taste too. Choosing the Wedding cake was worry free, we knew it was in safe hands. Guaranteed excellence, decadence and satisfaction.

Suzanne is so passionate about her job...
Suzanne is so passionate about her job. She really listened to us and asked all the right questions to create our perfect tailor made cake. She drew a sketch and I was absolutely blown away, it was perfect and actually made me cry I was that overwhelmed. She was so lovely and you could tell she wanted it to be as perfect as we did. She's a perfectionist! She also made our wedding favours which paired up as guest names and these were adorable. I can not thank suzanne enough,she deserves an award.
