Amazing Cupcakes

I asked Carolyn if she could make 60 cupcakes to celebrate 4 birthdays. She interpreted my needs exactly and not only did they look wonderful (with different themes) they tasted lovely as well. Highly recommend.

Birthday cake

I just want to say a huge thank you for making such a beautiful cake for my daughter's 30th birthday party. We had an idea which you turned into reality ! My daughter was overwhelmed when she saw it , as were all the guests. The attention to detail and intricate design was absolute perfection .The three tiers, in different flavours, were all delicious, though I felt it was a pity to cut into it.
Thank you so much and we shall certainly recommend you .

I was looking for a cake for my husbands 40th birthday. I looked at a few in the local area and asked for quotes. Cake Matters was very professional and thorough with their quotes. Not the cheapest I found but you get what you pay for. After agreeing a price and details I was impressed with all the communication. It certainly put my mind to rest. The day of the party we were in constant contact and everything went smoothly. The cake looked and tasted amazing. It also came in under budget!!
