Just writing to you to say how absolutely stunning the cake was! It took my breath away! My dream wedding cake, I had so many compliments about it, my photographer said it looks like a top celebrity cake, and people saying it was the most beautiful cake they have ever seen! And me and Ollie totally agree! Can't thank you enough for creating the perfect cake for us! We will never forget it! I'll send over a pic for you!
Thankyou isn't enough! We are so happy!

Thank you SO much for such a beautiful and spectacular cake!!! Everyone was commentating on how they have never seen such a unique cake before!! Lee and I were so happy when we saw it! And it was delicious too!!!
The stand is with my event planner who will have it couriered to you on Thursday.
Apologies for not providing you with a cheque, it was so busy the last few days leading up to the wedding and I couldn't find my cheque book. The stand hasn't been damaged though so all should be fine.
We will send you some photos of the cake when we are back from honeymoon as we leave this evening.

It is so lovely to hear from you. WoW how do I express my feelings towards the best cake in the world. I was so flabbergasted when I saw the cake, it was out of this world and truly is the best cake I have ever seen!
The flavours where also out of this world, best cake I have ever tasted. I have had so many compliments on the cake and they all deserve to go to you.
You exceeded my expectations one thousand times over. Brilliant and I would like to see if we could make a little cake for my new husbands birthday in June. A little while to go yet but something small for a dinner party would be amazing, with that outstanding chocolate ganache filling!!!! <3
I cannot thank you enough. You are amazing.

Here are some pictures from last night. The cake was amazing and nan loved it a lot! The flavours were fabulous, everyone commented on how tasty it was and wanted second helpings. She was so impressed with the fruit cake and all the detail (especially the little dog model). Thank you so much again! A perfect cake for a special leap year birthday.

Just a quick email to say thank you so so much for our wonderful christening cake! There a few things that excite me more than waiting to see one of your cakes 😊

Yasmin" - Yasmin Tweed on their Elephant and His Friends Christening Cake, November 2015
"Ilona's cakes are amazing. She had designed the most beautiful wedding cake from our brief beyond anything I could have imagined. Her friendly approach is amazi...ng and she really does take the time to capture exactly what you want and get to know you. But most importantly the mix of flavours and choices were amazing, our favourite was the carrot cake and our guests absolutely loved it. Thank you." - Tiffany and Ed Joby on their Cinderella Carriage and Wine Wedding cake October 2015
We LOVED the cake! It was everything that we wanted and was just how We had imagined the cake would look. The detail on the cake just amazed us and the cats as well were perfect. We had so many comments from our family and friends saying how they loved the cake. I will get some pictures through to you shortly.
My family loved the cake so much that I will be in contact with you next year. We have some very big birthdays and we would love if you could make their birthday cakes.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for such an amazing wedding cake! The presentation of the cake was absolutely amazing and everyone we spoke to said how beautiful it looked!
You did such a fantastic job and the cake tastes absolutely delicious! Luckily there was some spare when we took it home yesterday and we can't get over how good it tastes!
Once again, thank you so much for all your hard work in helping us design the cake and bringing it to life!
We will definitely be recommending you to all of our friends and family!
Dean & Fiona x" - Dean and Fiona Lyden on their Dragonfly Wedding Cake with Cupcakes, September 2015
"Ilona is all-in-all fantastic and we highly recommend her. She is super talented and just so lovely too.
It's a very difficult task for someone to listen to your (my) muddled and inexperienced explanation of a design that you have only in your head and for that person to deliver you results. However, Ilona understood us perfectly, and not only did she get what we wanted, but she also helped us to tweak its design to make it even better.
Furthermore Ilona bought round some delicious examples for us to try and helped us to choose what cakes and fillings we wanted.
Ilona communicated with us throughout and delivered to us the most stunning wedding cake that was better then we could have dreamt.
My husband is a chef by trade (he's one who isn't easy to please) and he couldn't fault the taste and look of our wedding cake"
- Natalie and Mark Harrison on their White Pearl Wedding Cake August 2015
"Thank you so so much for our amazing cup cake wedding cake! It looked absolutely beautiful, even better than I imagined. We had nothing but complements not only on how beautiful it looked, but how amazing it tasted. You are a very talented lady! Thank you, Laura and Dan x" - Laura and Dan Medhurst on their Dusky Pink And Pearl Wedding Cake with Cupcakes, August 2015
"Hi Ilona. The cake was fabulous! Thank you so much. It was beautiful and absolutely delicious. My mum wants you to make her a pumpkin and pecan cake so she can have it all to herself. : ) xx"
- Amy and Mike Peach on their Nautical Navy Blue Wedding cake, August 2015
I am so sorry I meant to email you sooner!
The cake was absolutely amazing. Thank you so so much. The cake topper was perfect and stayed on all day and even when we transported the top tier back home.
Thank you! I will be recommending you with no hesitation!
Lauren" - Lauren Coetzee on their Twine and Lace Rustic Wedding Cake
The cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted amazing - we couldn't have been happier, thank you very much.
It was really delicious and we had loads of the chocolate layer left over which Mike and I ate when we got back from our honeymoon two weeks later - and it still tasted great!
Thanks again for everything - you made a perfect contribution to our wedding day and we really appreciate it. If you would like a review for your website or Facebook page, please let me know.

Thank you so so much. Our cake was incredible out of this world, amazing.

Michelle & Chris x" - Michelle and Chris Hawthorne on their Movies Wedding cake at the Ritz London
Our wedding was amazing, the day couldn't have gone any better. The cake was amazing too, the diabetic bit was so good, I took some to the hotel at Gatwick, where Ian and I enjoyed the last of it. It was honestly so good thank you so much for doing that for me.
From what I understand the rest of the cake was perfect too, Ian and I decided not to freeze any, but we took the leftovers to our local pub on the Sunday and the guys there finished it off and all commented on how tasty the cake was.
Thank you again for helping make our day so memorable I certainly will recommend your services to my friends for any occasions.
Sarah" - Sarah McTurk on their Purple and Gold Gift Boxes Wedding Cake
Your cake was AMAZING! Everyone loved it especially Rufus who squealed when he saw it - he knew it was Raa-Raa!
The cake itself was delicious and you are so talented with the decoration. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Take care thank you again and I will definitely be in touch.
With very best wishes

Thanks again, you’re a star.

The cake was amazing thank you! The children absolutely loved it.. and the adults too. It tasted incredible! It was very impressive and lots of people asking who made it, there were lots of wows! In the room!" - Rebecca Williams on her TRex Cake for her son's 4th birthday
I can’t begin to tell you how much Brannon loved his cake. It was a wonderful work of art, you are so talented!
I huge thank you xxx Shirley xxx" - Shirley Gillanders on her Game Of Thrones cake for her son's 18th birthday
The cake was amazing it was perfect. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was. And it tasted just as good as it looked. Can't decide if my favourite was lemon or chocolate but all 4 flavours were good. And it's all gone none was wasted 😃
As soon as I've uploaded my photos I will share on wgg to recommend you and will definitely use you again for any cakes we need in the future.
Thank you so much." - Michelle Lawton on her daughter Dorothy's Christening Cake
Well, your cake was admired in the entire restaurant last night! It was kept in the kitchen during the evening whilst we had our meal and apparently the chefs were very impressed as well! When it was brought through the look on Rebecca's face was pure delight. She was absolutely thrilled with it and we all spent 10 minutes just talking about how clever and artistic you are. Rebecca's partner Phil was intrigued with it and actually thought that the wine was sitting in a real basket!
Thank you so much....I knew it would be good but I am very happy with the end result. We didn't cut it last night as Rebecca wanted to show it to some people but I'm looking to taste it tomorrow!" - Yvonne Hastie on her Wine Bottle in Basket for her daughter's 30th birthday
"The cake was amazing - it looked beautiful but more importantly it tasted delicious!
I had lots of great comments about it. There was plenty - the venue didn't serve it all so there was lots left over which went down very well at a family lunch the next day. My Mum froze some of it in slices for us so we could have some when we came back. It froze really well and still tasted so good! The carrot was definitely my favourite.
Thank you so much for your creative design - it fitted perfectly with the theme of the wedding. I still have the gorgeous flower from the top - not sure what to do with it - it looks so pretty. Let me know if you have any ideas!" - Demelza Fryer-Saxby on their 'Birds, Birdcages and Blossoms' wedding cake
"Ilona - what can I say! My husband Rod (and all our friends and family) where totally blown away by your replica of our beloved canal boat!!!! FAB-U-LOUS!!! (And it tasted delicous too!!)" - Carol Hamilton-King on her 'Narrowboat cake' for her husband's 60th birthday
"We've ordered several cakes from Ilona. It started with our own wedding cake, a stunningly beautiful bird cage, with that extra special filling - we had asked for marzipan and the cake ended up with a delicate layer of it beneath the icing. It was absolutely delicious. Since then, we've had a Christmas cake and several birthday cakes, including one shaped like a camera - you could barely tell the difference between the cake and the real thing, I couldn't bring myself to cut into it... We ended up cutting between the 'lens' and the 'camera' as if changing lenses rather than eating a cake!! Every cake has been a different flavour and ALL of them have been just as tasty! The hardest part is cutting into something which clearly has had a lot of love put into its creation... Ilona has an incredible talent to pick up incredible amounts of detail in her cakes and we cannot recommend Tiers of Happiness highly enough to everyone we photograph!" - Jakob and Dasha on their 'Birdcage Cake' wedding cake
"It is so beautiful. I love it. Thank you soooooo much for your part in making Sunday even more special for my parents. You are truly truly talented. Xx" - Joanne Danziel's 'Golden Anniversary' cake for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary
"When my partner asked Ilona to make my daughter Sophie a Fireman Sam cake for her first birthday I was horrified! I had planned to ask for something pink, girlie, with flowers and butterflies! Instead I thought we would get a plain cake with a picture of Fireman Sam as an outline on the top - very boyish. Boy was I in for a HUGE surprise! When Ilona dropped off Sophie's Fireman Sam cake I think my first words were "WOW"....and that was when I'd picked my jaw up off the floor! It's not often that I'm rendered speechless but I was blown away by Ilona's creativity, design and talent - it was a work of art and nothing like the flat outline of Fireman Sam I had expected....and it was totally girlie too.......just as I'd hoped for!!! Once we'd finally managed to persuade ourselves to actually cut into the cake we were not disappointed - it tasted sensational - so not only does Ilona have a natural talent for decoration & art....she can cook as well! We will be requesting more cakes from Ilona in the future and will certainly be recommending her to all our friends and family too. What are you waiting for!!" - Elisa Saunder's 'Fireman Sam' cake for her daughters 1st birthday
"The cake went down reaaaalllly well! She loved it :) Huge thanks to you both. xxx" - Rachel Eno's requested a birthday cake for her Max.
