"Thank you so much, it's better than we expected and thank you for doing it at short notice."

"Everyone loved the cake, they all thought it was wonderful and tasted great.  Thank you so much."

"You’ve made us all smile, such a lovely thoughtful gift we can give at such a terribly difficult time! 

Thank you."  

"What an amazing service, on very short notice we had 3 cakes made, incredibly high standard, beautifully presented and delivered to our venue, would highly recommend, excellent and local service, in my opinion would highly recommend and the cakes were yummy."

"I have sent 'Hug In A Cake' postal cakes four times to date and the response has been amazing.  It is a fantastic alternative to flowers or token gifts.  If you are stuck for an idea for a male relative/friend as I was, look no further!  Each time, I  have received a telephone call to such a kind and thoughtful gift.  The eco-friendly packaging is an important factor too.  This gift really ticks all the boxes."

"We have received some truly outstanding cakes from Beyond The Icing.  Most recently, a stunning Art Deco cake for a 50th Birthday celebration which tasted absolutely divine, with a fantastic presentation and detailed touches.  The Monkey & Palm tree cake for our sons birthday was an absolute hit at the children's party and helped make it a special celebration, while the Christmas bauble cake was a lovely rich texture with a really impressive detailed icing layer.  For consistently high standards and something extra special, these cakes are highly recommended."

"Our charity contacted 'Beyond the Icing' for support in delivering an Afternoon Tea function in our hospice grounds. Catherine provided the most tasteful and exquisite cakes - even creating a delicate, beautifully crafted edible butterfly as a flourish on each of the cupcakes! Thanks to Catherine, our afternoon was a fabulous success. She led on table-dressing and helped to put together some final flourishes decorating our marquees. She took on the lead in serving the tables, staying with our charity for the full day and being a wonderful 'joint' host with us. In short, nothing was too much trouble! Thoroughly recommend Beyond the Icing for your cake-catering needs!"
