Thank you, Mary and Louise.

"Not only did the wedding cake look fantastic, the taste was wonderful.The only problem was there were no left overs because people kept coming back for more! Lemon cake was the flavour.  I have subsequently used Mary for the cakes for three of my children's 21st birthdays and all present have been delighted.



"The cake was BEAUTIFUL! Everyone was talking about it! I didn't eat much at the time - wedding nerves! - but did get a couple of bites and now I'm craving for more!! Thank you, Mary"

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for getting the cupcakes to my friend today. She loved them and said they were gorgeous."

"We are writing to say thank you for the wonderful job you made of the wedding cakes for Victoria and Tim’s wedding at Te Toki on 5 January.  The cakes were so delicious and were all eaten – Victoria was hoping to take some home to munch on during the week!  The cupcakes for Sunday went down a real treat as did the biscuit favours.  We would not hesitate to highly recommend you for future weddings on Waiheke Island.  You were so lovely to deal with Mary and we can’t thank you enough for all your efforts."
