Open Quote  "Thank you so much for our delicious wedding cakes and cupcakes that you and your mum created for our wedding. The cakes were delicious and they all looked so elegant. All our guests commented how fresh and delicious they tasted. I knew from the first moment I spoke to you that, you were interested in what I wanted and were happy to help in any way. The consultations and tasting session was so helpful and put my mind to rest. I really appreciated the updates via e-mail and text. The text on my wedding day to reassure me that everything was in place at my venue was much appreciated.

I will have no hesitations in recommending you in the future."  Close Quote

Open Quote  Hi Kathleen,
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the cakes for Tracy & David's wedding. They were exceptional..... not just in looks but in taste too. It would give me pleasure to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a cake specialist. I have never tasted fruit cake so moist, the decoration was superb, and the cake itself was packed with fruit.

Take care, and thank you once again.  Close Quote

Open Quote  Thank you so much for Sophie’s Graduation cake. She loved it and was very impressed with the Uni logo! It tasted divine (as usual!). Not much left as I gave a large chunk to my friend who had travelled up from Surrey so she can share it with the family.

It was a fabulous day, albeit freezing cold and I was one very proud Mum!

Once again, many thanks Kathy.  Close Quote

Open Quote  I just wanted to e-mail you direct to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on my birthday cake. It was simply superb, and just the ticket. I assume that any resemblance between me and the morph character on top of the cake is purely coincidental?!!!  Close Quote


Open Quote  i want to thank you for our wonderful cake, it was a great talking point, we totally loved it.  Close Quote


Open Quote  The cake was FABULOUS and my parents were absolutely delighted. Unfortunately they were so delighted that they had to show everyone where they live so didn’t get round to cutting it while we were there. My sister tells me it tasted as good as it looked.

Thanks again for all your hard work and creative efforts – you’re a star.  Close Quote

Open Quote  I meant to email yesterday to let you know how well your cake went down, my dad was thrilled with it and had vowed to Keep Gilbert the Gull in one piece, I think he even nearly shed a tear as he was so touched by it! All of my family were very impressed and the staff at the pub where we had the do were asking where I had it made, as they all thought it was the best cake they had ever seen!!! They were very disappointed when I said I'd brought it down from Newcastle ! There were also many compliments for the cake itself even a non cake eater had a bit and said how good it was. Thanks again for making it, we all loved it!  Close Quote


Open Quote  As I fully expected, the birthday cake was absolutely wonderful. What a lovely sheen the icing had and how beautifully if was finished off. It was much admired and enjoyed by all who came to the party. Everybody particularly commented how nice a change the lemon sponge was from the traditional fruit cake. I gave mum a big chunk to take home, also her brother who came from Harrogate. The flowers are also a lovely keepsake.

A very big thank you again for all your hard work and creativity. Not sure what the next occasion is going to be yet, but I'll be back for another……………  Close Quote

Open Quote  I have purchased cakes from Kathleen over the last 6-8 months and have to say that each and everyone has been fantastic in both design and taste.  Close Quote


Open Quote  Kathleen has made many cakes for my family, from 65th birthday celebrations to a children’s Thomas the Tank Engine cake.

All of the cakes have been excellently designed, very well received and have tasted wonderful.

I personally recommend the chocolate cake which always goes down a treat with children and adults alike.  Close Quote


Open Quote  I am delighted at the overall service provided by Mrs. Devlin, not only are the cakes absolutely delicious but my son was ecstatic when he saw the figures on the Dr. Who cake, the level of detail on the Daleks was amazing

My son is a real Lego fan, I thought I was asking the impossible for both the bricks and the people to be replicated on a cake, but nothing is too much of a challenge, my son still has the Lego men!

Being a chocoholic and a real girlie girl my daughter's birthday cake was perfect. The quality of the chocolate cake was second to none and the pink dolly mixture themes was perfect for a 21st birthday cake.

For a 16 year old boy its not easy to choose a theme for a birthday cake but Mrs. Devlin came up trumps with the karate theme.  Close Quote


Open Quote  Wow – I was really, really pleased with the cake. It was beautiful, the detail on the cake was amazing and my daughter loved it too! Thanks for making her birthday extra special!  Close Quote


Open Quote  The cake that was designed by Kathy for our daughters christening was fantastic is every respect – from appearance to taste. Everybody who attended the christening had positive comments to make on the cake.

Would and will definitely be using Kathy again.  Close Quote
