Customer Reviews

We were so pleased with the cake that Elle made, and it looked amazing set up in the venue. All the flavours tasted great, so many of our guests got in touch to praise the cake the day after. Elle was so helpful throughout the process and was able to suggest ideas for the design as well as incorporate our thoughts into the final cake – thank you so much!

Elle is an artistic cake genius! We were nervous trying to plan our wedding cake during covid, but the moment her samples arrived in perfect condition and absolutely delicious we were sold. She designed the most perfect 3 tiered cake for us that looked like it belonged in my dreams - perfectly matching our wedding theme and colours. We had 3 different flavours, all so delicious. Our guests all loved the cake and kept asking for more! The photo of our cake belongs on our wall. Elle is also just a pleasure to work with, very responsive, friendly and genuine. Couldn’t recommend anyone better. Thanks so much Elle for everything! I’ll be coming back to you for all my future cakes!!!

I've worked with Elle for a number of years so when it came to designing our own wedding cake, there really was no one else I'd of considered. We knew we wanted something a little different, something that matched our colour palette and included some really personal touches and Elle managed to bring that vision to life and create the real showstopper we wanted. Not only is Elle an artist, but her cakes taste divine. Everyone has commented on how delicious the cake was and how the attention to detail is beyond anything they've seen before. I can honestly say Elle is one of the only cake makers I would ever recommend. Everything was perfect and as always she was a dream to work with. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much 🖤🖤

Dear Lauren, this feedback means the world to me! I always love working with you and it was such an honour and great pleasure to create your wedding cake for you both. I couldn't be more delighted and so appreciate you sending through the cake photos! Wishing you both every happiness in your lives together. Elle Xxx

Elle made us a beautiful 3 tier wedding cake for our Jan 2022 wedding. Couldn't fault her service, so professional and friendly from day 1 she made it an easy and effortless process on our behalf, in what is a busy and stressful time for a bride and groom. All 3 flavours were delicious- we even had guests asking if they could take extra home because they loved it so much! Would highly recommend!

Dear Lorna, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I couldn't be more delighted and it was an absolute pleasure to create your wedding cake for you both! I loved finishing it with your special topper. Wishing you every happiness in your lives together. Very best wishes Elle Xx

Elle's cake was the talk of the wedding from the moment it appeared on the centre of our dance floor. And, almost every thank you card we've received since has mentioned how delicious the different flavoured layers were. It looked and tasted just stunning!

Dear Georgina Wow that is such wonderful feedback and so appreciated! It was a joy to create and set up your wedding cake at Kew Gardens and the whole wedding just looked absolutely beautiful!

We tried a few different cake designers and as great as they all were, Elle was definitely best! The cakes she made for our initial tasting were absolutely delicious and she also contributed some great ideas to our design and helped us clarify our thinking. When the big day came around, the cake looked and tasted absolutely perfect. 'Perfect' is not a word that I would use lightly but that is exactly what it was! We are planning on marking our anniversary each year by asking Elle to make us cupcakes in our incredible wedding flavours. Thank you, Elle x

Dear Toby and Jason, Following on from our email correspondence, I just wanted to thank you here as well for your incredible feedback which really means the world to me!

Elle made our wedding cake in September 2019. From the beginning of meeting Elle right up until the big day she was amazing. We had so many comments on how beautiful the cake looked and tasted, it was just perfect. Thank you so much!

Thank you Elle for our wedding cake! It was absolutely delicious and you made it look perfect to match our decor. You were a dream to work with!! Would highly recommend Elle to anyone looking for a cake for their big day! X

Thank you Elle for our beautiful wedding cake, it was absolutely amazing. So many comments on how beautiful it looked and it tasted so good. It completely exceeded my expectations. The 4 tiers,with different flavours all worked perfectly. My son absolutely loved the cake. THANK YOU

Elle made the cake for our wedding in July 2019. We loved everything about the process - the tasting in Elle's front room, where she had everything we wanted to taste and made a lovely cup of tea to go with it, to the choosing and design, to the excellent set up on the day. Elle couldn't do enough for us and the cake looked and tasted amazing - our guests agreed that the lemon tier was one of the best lemon cakes they'd tasted! She's a wonderful supplier local to us in Kingston and we would recommend her to anyone. Caroline and Adam

We choose Elle to make our beautiful wedding cake for our wedding last August. From meeting with Elle for a tasting, we knew that we had found our lady. She worked with us and advised us what would work best. We had a 4 tier semi naked cake and each tier was full of flavor and looked like something put of a magazine shoot. Our wedding cake was beautiful.

I was absolutely thrilled with the 3 tiered cake Elle had created for our wedding. It was simple stunning and fitted in perfectly with my theme. All three flavours were delicious! I would highly recommend Elle.

We had a wonderful experience choosing Elle to make our wedding cake. We wanted a local supplier and from the moment we began our epic tasting appointment we knew Elle would be able to make our perfect cake! She made us feel very relaxed and very much had a 'can do' attitude and got on board with all our ideas. The cake was beautifully set up on the day, exactly as we had imagined, and the flavours were sensational - all our guests loved it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We were so happy with the beautiful wedding cake which Elle created for us and everything about the process was so easy. From our scrumptious 'tasting' right through to the delivery and set up of the cake, Elle was truly wonderful. She guided us through all the options, answered all of our questions and the resulting cake was stunning and very, very tasty. Highly recommended!

Elle made our wedding cake and we couldn't have been happier - she is such a fantastic cake designer and maker. She was so helpful right from the beginning; her consultation was really professional and absolutely delicious, she had so much time for us and really listened to what we wanted. Our order was quite complex - we wanted vegan, gluten free and standard cake and she managed to accommodate all of this for us so everyone could enjoy our cake and at an affordable price. She worked with my florist to coordinate the design with my overall wedding theme and the cake was just so scrumptious - I only wish we had been able to eat more on the day! Thanks Elle, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending you.

My husband and I went to Elle to design our wedding cake last year in July 2020 and I can honestly say it was the best Red Velvet and Victoria Sponge cake we have ever tasted! All of our wedding guests loved the cake too! Elle truly has a great gift for baking and she really puts her heart and passionate in to everything. I absolutely loved my wedding cake and felt so sad when we had finished it all. We also asked Elle to make macaroons for the wedding favours and they were delicious too! Thank you so much Elle!

From the very beginning Elle was highly professional and you could tell how much she enjoys what she does. Our wedding cake was perfect and exactly what we had envisaged. Thank you again Elle for making our beautiful wedding cake! My husband made sure he got a fair share of it on the day! especially the carrot cake which is his favourite and best he has ever had!!

We can not thank you enough for our dream wedding cake! You captured our theme beautifully and the little touches you added, from the fern to the blackberries, were stunning. From the moment we tasted your lemon cake at the Morden Hall open day, we knew we wanted you to make our cake. The flavours were delicious and the vegan cupcakes you made for some our guests went down a storm. Every part of the wedding cake process was easy and faultless. We planned on saving some for our one year anniversary but an amazing cake shouldn't live in the freezing! So, it is safe to say that we have no regrets about scoffing what was left over the next day! Thank you again Elle.

Our wedding cake was absolutely stunning and tasted incredible! We loved the range of flavours available and our guests were so complementary. Definitely would recommend Elle for any occasion requiring a cake.

The wedding cake Elle made us went beyond all expectations and was so beautiful and delicious! All our guests loved it and gave us such amazing feedback. We would highly recommend Elle for her amazing cake skills and wonderful customer service. If we could give her more than 5 Stars we would!

The best I could have hoped to find.. My son had the longest and most exacting list of ‘haves’ for his wedding cake - it had to be good enough to serve as dessert, very chocolaty, moist, fresh, large.... etc etc. Elle’s cake was all that and more. And she was so friendly and accommodating, explaining details that I would never have known or thought to ask about. And it was super affordable.

We were lucky to find such a great wedding cake baker so close to where we live. We had great fun at our cake tasting and the flavours were incredible. We asked for a 5-tier cake with Oreo, white chocolate + raspberry, and tangy lemon flavours. It looked fantastic, and each tier was delicious! Thank you Elle!

Elle is the best cake maker/decorator I have ever met! She is kind and inviting and her cakes are just heavenly! One of the highlights of our wedding Fay was most definitely the cake! I couldn't wait to taste it and couldn't wait to get all my guests have a slice! If you want the best cake ever for a wedding, she is were you need to get it from! The design was exactly what we had in mind and it was just perfect.

Elle is so lovely and really listened to how we wanted our cake to look producing a beautiful 3 tiered cake with pale green marbling and torn icing edges with hydrangea flowers. It looked fantastic. It also tasted delicious. We had a wonderful relaxed tasting at Elle’s house and it was so difficult to decide as there wasn’t one flavour we didn’t like. Finally plumped for a chocolate guiness cake with baileys cream, zesty orange cake and moist almond. They were all superb. I highly recommend you ask Elle to make your cake.

Ellie is just phenomenal. From our first enquiry to the cake itself everything was perfect. Elle knew exactly what we were looking for (from the vagueness of my description!) and brought it to life in the most wonderful way. She made us feel comfortable and at ease and covered off everything we could possible imagine to do with a wedding cake. Our florist on the day couldn’t be there to put the fresh flowers on but Elle exceeded and the finished cake was genuinely better than I could have ever imagined. Not only that but Elle is incredibly friendly and makes you feel part of her family. If you’re looking for a cake that will not just taste amazing but will look beautiful and hit every nail on the head then you NEED to contact Elle. I know I’ll be asking for her cakes again for every future milestone.

I wanted to say a massive thank you to you for the most amazing looking and delicious tasting cake ever. We have had so many compliments on how yummy it was (but we knew that ourselves!). I didn’t even get a chance to try the bottom (Oreo) layer, which I know was my favourite, as the guests scoffed it all up before I had a chance!! But I had some of all the other three and they more than lived up to expectation, so thank you.

Dear Josephine Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words. It was a huge honour and great pleasure to make your cake for you and I so loved the adding the beautiful blossoms to finish the look. Very best wishes to you both. Elle X

We chose Elle following recommendations from our florist (Flowers by Eve) and our venue (Morden Hall). We were lucky enough to sample Elle’s cakes at the tasting day and she was very accommodating by providing the samples we asked for as I had made contact in advance. Elle was lovely to work with, she communicated well, understood our needs and the finished product was perfect. Our wedding cake was stunning, delicious, thoroughly enjoyed by our guests and us when we managed to have a slice the morning after! Thank you Elle.

We were really lucky to have Elle to do our cake, she's very passionate and her cakes have undoubted the best flavor and details we have seen so far. She has listened and coming out the better idea for our cake. Her attention to details and skills won us and all our guests' heart. After tasting session, we knew she was the one we wanted. We were also lucky to reserve her cake in short notice, we had so many guests loving the cake. She is taking every order so seriously just like making her own wedding cake, we cannot recommend her more, she is one you can trust.

Amazing cake! Elle captured our vision perfectly. Our 3 tier wedding cake looked fantastic & tasted delicious!

Often you see photos on social media that look great but when you see them in person they disappoint - but when we saw our cake for the first time we were both blown away! The intricacy and attention to detail is unbelievable, many of our guests commented on how they couldn't believe the flowers on the cake were not real and in fact made of icing. Sometimes it's also easy to forget the most important part but the cake was absolutely delicious! And to top it all off Elle is an absolute pleasure to work with - very accommodating and so generous with her expertise. We are recommending her to everyone we know!

Elle made my daughter a stunning wedding cake. Three layers, all different flavours and utterly delicious. Our guests went back for second and third slices. She is already booked for second daughter’s wedding.

Elle was really kind from the very start. Our guests absolutely loved the cake on the big day. Thank you for all your help!

We were so happy with our wedding cake. We chose a tall two tiered cake in Coconut & Lime. It looked absolutely beautiful, very elegant and tasted delicious, our guests loved it. Elle did an amazing job! Highly recommend.

We picked four different flavoured tiers for our wedding cake and each one was as amazing as the next! Very good feedback from all our guests. Well done Elle xx

Our wedding cake by Elle was beautiful, the flavours were amazing!

Dear Natalie and Nick. Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was so lovely working with you and I loved the design with its gold sequin base and the beautiful swag of fresh flowers. Wishing you both every happiness in your future together. Elle X

Elle was absolutely incredible, from design to tasting to the final cake we could not have wished for anything better. All of our guests adored the cake and loved the variety of flavours. I recommend her work to everyone! She’s fantastic to work with and I couldn’t recommend her more highly (just look at how beautiful her sugar paste flowers are!)

Elle was an absolute pleasure to work with from the start. The cake was beautiful and tasted incredible! It was everything we hoped for and more. Thank you Elle!

Elle was just fabulous to work with during our wedding prep. Very easy to correspond with, super helpful and accommodating during the design process and my hubby and I had the utmost confidence that she would deliver a stunning cake which she did. It tasted amazing too, all three flavours! The fact that she did all that with such a competitive price was even better. Would recommend her to anyone wanting a beautiful and not budget busting wedding cake.

Thank you so much for the beautiful cake you made for us. It looked absolutely stunning and tasted just as good.

Really superb. We had so many compliments about how delicious the cake was!

From first contact to the day itself Elle was great and a joy to work with. We were a bit useless at translating what we wanted in our minds into information Elle could actually use, but somehow she created exactly what we wanted! The cake itself was magnificent in style and flavour and we really couldn’t have asked for more.

Elle is super talented and made us THE most stunning wedding cake. We went from not really wanting a cake, to meeting Elle, and loving all of her work and sampling all the great flavours she had to offer - to then struggling to finalise what we wanted! That being said, we couldn’t have imagined a cake more beautiful, with carefully hand crafted icing rosettes and a special gluten free top tier for me. I actually squealed when I saw it! It looked fantastic and tasted amazing and was almost too beautiful to cut.

Elle made the most beautiful wedding cake you made for our wedding last year. It was stunning and our guests commented they were so impressed by the flawless finish they couldn't believe it was real! We had tiers of a rich chocolate cake, spiced ginger cake and white chocolate and passionfruit. Every flavour tasted absolutely delicious! Thank you again for all your help! We were thrilled with the cake!

Elle created me the most amazing macaron tower for my wedding. The colours of the macarons were fabulous and they tasted fantastic too. The macaron tower was set on a beautifully iced 'dummy' cake which we were able to cut and she prepared me another fruit cake that was cut up. The cakes tasted delicious and were beautifully iced. The macaron tower made a brilliant centre piece for the reception room - people are still commenting on it now. All in all what Elle created was exceptional.

Elle created a beautiful cake for us, it looked very elegant and tasted wonderful! Elle listened to our ideas and our wedding cake looked absolutely fantastic on the day! Thank you again!

We welcomed Elle as one of our suppliers at quite a late stage in planning, after being let down by another cake maker. She went above and beyond to deliver the very best design, taste and service for our wedding. Elle was wonderful!

Elle your simply the best, we thank you so much for creating the perfect wedding cake, it was the centre of attraction, the taste and texture was perfect leaving my guest wanting more.

Elle’s cake for our wedding was beautiful and delicious; the guests all raved about the taste and design - and how her flowers looked so real!! Too gorgeous to want to eat but not a crumb left in the end!!! Can’t wait for the anniversary cakes x thank you again Elle!

My wedding gift to my brother was the wedding cake and thank goodness I found Elle. Working with her was so easy and her advice regarding the design and the type of sugar flowers was perfect. I never met her and everything was done over the phone, email and text - it was so easy. The end result not only surpassed my expectations but stunned everyone at the wedding. Her sugar flowers and leaves looked real, the 3 different flavoured tiers and 2 different flavoured cupcakes all tasted amazing. Thank you Elle!

Cake was so delicious and beautifully presented... She knew exactly what I wanted, was very flexible as I was planning my wedding from Australia and worked effortlessly with the florist (as I had flowers on my cake). Highly recommend.

Elle produced an absolutely stunning 3 tiered cake with the most amazing life-like sugar flowers together with delightful cupcakes for my brother's wedding. She is a pleasure to work with, everything was done remotely - I never met her once and yet she understood exactly what I wanted. I wish I lived in the area she covers, as I would use her all the time.

It was such a pleasure having Elle do our wedding cake - she produced the most beautiful finished product and it tasted amazing. We had comments from all the guests about how delicious it was.

I loved working with Elle from start to finish. I had no idea what I wanted and yet she created the most amazing cake. She let me taste a range and talked me through my plans. The cake itself was amazing. I had so many comments on the day about how delicious it was!

Elle understood our vision from the first consultation and created a beautiful and delicious cupcake tower for our wedding. We could not be happier with how it turned out!

We wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful wedding cake you made for our wedding this summer. It was stunning and our guests commented they were so impressed by the flawless finish they couldn't believe it was real! We had tiers of a rich chocolate cake, spiced ginger cake and white chocolate and passionfruit. Every flavour tasted absolutely delicious! Thank you again for all your help!

Thank you so much to the amazing Elle for making us the most beautiful cake for our recent wedding at Morden Hall, July 2018. She was so easy to work with, did a beautiful job and the cake tasted absolutely outstanding. There was nothing she couldn't do during the design process and the flavours on offer were second to none. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Elle for the brilliant cupcake tower she made for our wedding! From the first consultation and cake tasting, we knew that we wanted Elle to make the cakes for our special day. She is so lovely and personable and immediately understood exactly the design and overall aesthetic we had in mind. We have received countless compliments from guests regarding how delicious all the different flavoured cupcakes tasted. We would 100% recommend Designer Cakes by Elle.

We want to thank you so much for baking us such an amazing cake! It was impossible to choose what flavour at first because all the ones we tried were so delicious. In the end we went for red velvet as it blew us away at the tasting. We appreciate the hours you spent with us giving us ideas to match what we had in mind and designing the perfect cake. It looked absolutely stunning, and tasted even better than we could have imagined. All of our guests complimented us on how good the cake was, and you will be pleased to know that we did not have a crumb left. Thank you for helping make our day so special.

Dear Lillian & Dimitriy. Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was a delight working with you both to create your design and I am so thrilled to receive your feedback. Huge congratulations to you both and wishing you every happiness in your future together. Elle x

Elle recently produced the most magnificent cake for my wedding. The quality was outstanding and fantastic value for money. Would highly recommend her to all brides.

Incredible tasting cakes! The lemon is wonderful!

Elle makes the best wedding cakes ever!

Elle has great customer service, very responsive and was really good at being able to offer advice, guidance and get the 'ideas' out of your head without being pushy at all. She co-ordinated it to my flowers. The cake was multi tiers, 4 x flavours, absolutely stunning and I couldn't have been happier. We have continued to use her post for 50th wedding anniversaries, Christenings etc. From service, to design to flavour, I couldn't recommend her highly enough

Fantastic pre and after sales service. Excellent detailing and delivery of what's been promised.

Elle did a marvellous job in created our four-tiered wedding cake in September last year. She listened to our requirements (I was quite particular over flavours) and added her own bit of panache. Overall, a really beautiful and tasty cake. All of our guests loved it and we received so many compliments. She is a joy to work with and her creations are just as lovely. :)

Elle made the cake everyone is still talking about, six months after our wedding! It was easily the highlight of the day, in looks as much as flavor, and we wish we had another reason to order 5 more tiers. And she's a saint: exceptionally organized, giving and polite. Love, love, love Elle!

We had the pleasure of working with Elle for our wedding in May 2017, having previously meet her at the Loseley Wedding Fayre. As soon as we tasted her cakes at the Fayre, we knew we had found our supplier! After discussing our wedding and the themes, Elle so kindly accommodated both us and our mothers at her home to allow us to try all sorts of cake varieties. We even asked for a Bellini layer cake to tie to our Italian theme and Elle did not disappoint: it was an easy decision to include in our final choice! In the end, we choose a three layered cake of chocolate, lemon and Bellini. Elle was such a delight to work with throughout and I cannot recommend her highly enough. All of our guests were blown away by the appearance of the cake (complete with golden facade and gorgeous decorative sugar flowers), surpassed only by the sumptuous taste!!

Elle is a one off - really dedicated and knowledgeable. Our cake was just incredible and I cannot thank her enough.

We had the utmost pleasure of having Designer cakes by Elle make our scrumptious Wedding cake. Layer after layer of moist, rich and delicious cake - it was the talk of the day!

Fantastic cakes, absolutely delicious and Elle was so friendly and helpful. Can’t recommend her highly enough

Fantastic flavors! The cake was delicious and it looked exactly how we wanted it! We got to do our tasting with almost all flavors which was very useful for choosing the perfect cake!

Elle was lovely- very helpful, professional and friendly. Beautiful cake that tasted fantastic!

Dear Katie. Thank you so much for your very kind words. I am absolutely delighted to hear this. It was a great pleasure to get to meet you and a huge honour to create your wedding cake for your big day! Wishing you every happiness in your future together. Elle x

Elle created an indulgent four-tiered masterpiece for my wedding. She incorporated all of the flavours we adore: lime, coconut and rum; Belgian chocolate and salted caramel, and chocolate and hazelnut - which she managed to make so it tasted just like Fererro Rocher! The cake looked gorgeous and tasted divine. She listened to our requests at each stage of the process, even switching the buttercream covering to fondant for me, right at the last minute. I could not recommend Elle highly enough!

'Delicious' doesn't adequately describe the moist decadence that is Elle's cake. From our first bite at the tasting, my partner and I were convinced that she was the only one who could prepare our wedding cake and we were not disappointed, neither by flavour nor price. Elle not only gave us the best-tasting cake of our lives but she also did it at the best value that we could find. It doesn't hurt that she is the nicest person you'll ever meet! The cake was delivered on time, without issues and it was absolutely beautiful and exactly what we asked for. We recommend Elle without reservation and wholeheartedly look forward to working with her again.

We both just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding cake! It was absolutely beautiful and the detail of the lace design was amazing! We only ate the lemon cake as saving the fruit cake for our 1 year anniversary but after eating the lemon it it is going to be hard to resist for a whole year! None of the quests noticed that it was gluten free as well!

I never thought a wedding cake could be that tasty! Our wedding cake had one large tier with fresh lime and coconut and one smaller tier with a lighter chocolate sponge and was truly delicious. Elle designed the cake exactly as we wanted it and we received a lot of compliments from our guests. Look no further if you are looking for a wedding cake designer! Thanks Elle!

Elle is able to bring any ideas you have for your wedding cake to life and work together to create the perfect combination and design. Myself, my husband and all our guests loved everything about our wedding cake from the beautiful design to the delicious taste. We will be ordering more cakes for all our special occasions;-)

Cake was amazing and extremely tasty. We had 2 layers, one sponge with raspberry jam and almond buttercream and another layer with lemon buttercream and lemoncello. It was also decorated and made as we wanted. Highly satisfied beyond the expectations. Everybody loved it!

Dear Giuseppe and Michelle. Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was a huge pleasure to create your wedding cake for you and I am absolutely thrilled that you were delighted. Wishing you every happiness in your future together. Elle

Our cake was just wonderful. Elle did a great job at bringing our ideas to life with all of our favourite flavours, macarons and working with our florist Nicola at Flowers By Eve. We had only positive comments from our guests, and we were lucky enough to get to eat a few slices of each tier too.

Dear Rebecca. I am so thrilled to receive your feedback here. It was a great honour to create your wedding cake for you and such a delight to work on this design with the colourful macaron nestling in Nicola's beautiful fresh flowers (Flowers by Eve). Wishing you every happiness in your future together and thank you so much. Elle X

We came to Elle with quite specific ideas on what we wanted for our wedding - 100 cupcakes of varying flavours and decoration and two tiers of wedding cake. Elle recreated everything we wanted which not only looked amazing but tasted great! On the day Elle delivered and set up the arrangement with no issues whatsoever. We would certainly recommend Elle to others - someone who is truly passionate about what she does

Dear Laura and Tom. Thank you so much for your very kind words! I loved creating your wedding cupcake tower with the 2 top tiers and statement sugar peony-rose and it was a great honour to be part of your most special of days. With many thanks and very best wishes. Elle x

Our wedding cake was marvellous!! Three tiers with three different flavours. When the guests saw it they literally thought it was a fake one as it looked perfect. It was a real success as not much was left to bring home and freeze. Thanks to Elle' professional work and smooth communication our wedding was just perfect

Heaven...that is what it feels like when you taste one of Elle's cakes!! If you are getting married I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough. From the first time I made contact with her, to the wonderful cake tasting, to the lead up to our wedding, the wedding day itself and the weeks spent after our big day devouring our delicious cake...she has given us a 5 star service and more! She captured our elegant, sophisticated vision completely and her eye to detail is second to none. Thank you for making our dream wedding cake and thank you for making the journey in planning our wedding so enjoyable. If me saying she is the best isn't good enough for you, this might just sway you... We have now been married a month and I had someone literally text me yesterday about our cake - 'where can I find this lady that made your delicious wedding cake?...I need some in my life. NOW!!' We had x4 different cake flavours and each one was a winner. I literally could not pick a favourite. Elle goes above and beyond with her designs and flavours and I am so jealous of all the future bride and grooms who are going to have their wedding cake made by Elle. Thank you so much x

Dear Rowan and Lawrence. Thank you so much for your very kind feedback and I am beyond thrilled to read this. Thank you so much for selecting me to create your wedding cake - such an honour - and very best wishes for your future together. Elle x

Elle made our wedding cake last year and it was amazing. The final product was exactly how we had envisaged - elegant, grand, beautifully crafted and with an amazing red velvet sponge. All our guests were raving about it. We loved working with Elle from start to finish, she was welcoming, collaborative and professional. Thanks so much for a great service and a beautiful cake!

Dear Diana and Anthony. Thank you so much for your wonderfully kind words which I so appreciate. I just loved creating your design with its ribbon ruffles, silver leaf and 'waterfall' of sugar flowers. It was a great honour to be part of your most special of days. With very best wishes for your future together. Elle x

Elle was amazing!!! Our wedding cake was fantastic and all our guests loved it. She spent a few hours with us going through ideas and tasting and then we spend a few weeks coming up with our final plan. She helped us throughout! She made the process so easy and helped setting up flowers on the day around the cake too. I'm sure we'll use her many times in the future for cakes for all occasions.

Dear Catherine and Ankit. Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback which I am so delighted to receive. It was such an honour and great pleasure to create your 'Semi-Naked' wedding cake with the stunning fresh flowers. Thank you so much for choosing me to create your wedding cake for you and very best wishes in your future together. Elle x

Elle made our cake for our wedding in November, and all our guests commented on how delicious each of the four tiers were (all different flavours). The fact that she makes gluten free flavours too was an added bonus for me! Absolutely delicious, would recommend to anyone for weddings, birthdays or christenings.

Dear Hannah. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so delighted to read your very kind words and thank you so much for selecting me to create your wedding cake for you. It was a great honour to create your design for you and wishing you every happiness in your future together. Elle x

Elle created the most wonderful and beautifully designed cake for our wedding this July. Not only was the design exquisite but the flavours were superbly delicious and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed eating our cake. I was particularly impressed with how kind, helpful and professional Elle always was, really considering all our ideas and creating exactly what we wanted. Elle also made the most prettiest and delicious gluten free cup cakes that my guests who could not have our cake could enjoy so that they felt thoroughly included on our special day. They found this extremely thoughtful, as did I. Elle thoroughly deserves to win this award, I could not have dreamed of a more stunning wedding cake for the most happiest day of my life. Elle's talent and professionalism is truly a 'cut above the rest'!

Amazing 3-tier lemon drizzle wedding cake, gorgeously moist and beautifully presented. It was so popular there was none left at the end of the night!!

Elle designed and created my wedding cake and it went down an absolute storm on our big day. We had 5 layers with each layer being a different flavour: red velvet, chocolate, coffee and walnut, carrot cake and lemon. I had friends having competitions over who could eat all 5 flavours! Fortunately for my husband and I, who didn't manage to have some on the day, we had some left over which has meant we can enjoy it for weeks afterwards as it is still so fresh. Elle also created little golf figurines to go on top of the cake and gorgeous flowers to wrap around it. It was simply stunning and is mentioned a lot in the Thank you letters to my parents. I just wish I could get married again :)

Excellent customer care from day one to the final result, the perfect wedding cake! Elle was open to hearing our ideas as well as being able to provide value added suggestions. A cake tasting session is a must! It is during this session you will quickly realise how Designer Cakes by Elle has won previous Customer Service Awards.

Elle is excellent including her customer service. If I ever need cakes or macaroons will always reach out to her.

Fantastic cakes, macarons and favours. Elle is very efficient and excellent at communicating - this is a massive bonus when you have the stress of arranging a wedding. I would highly recommend!

We were very happy with Elle's designer cake services from day 1. From the welcoming cake tasting appointment to our wedding day. Elle understood what we wanted straight away and she advised us on what she thought would work from the design of the cake to the flavours. Not only is she a professional, she is a lovely lady. We knew we could trust her. Nothing was ever a problem. Our guests were so amazed when they saw the cake, they were taking more pictures of it than us! The flavours were delicious! It was the talk of the evening!

Elle created our dream wedding cake! The design was unique and tailored to our wedding vision, and the cake flavours to choose from were divine! Elle is so helpful and our cake was absolutely perfect!

Elle did the cake for my wedding in July and it was lovely.

Fantastic from first correspondence to final product. Heavenly tasting cakes, unique flavours and flexible to meet our budget and ideas. A pleasure to work with.

Right from the start we knew we were in good hands with Elle. She was very friendly and listened to exactly what we wanted. On the day we ended up with a beautiful cake that tasted amazing.

Elle created the most deliciously beautiful cake we could ever have wished for. She absolutely understood what we were looking for and created a masterpiece

Elle created a macaroon tower for my husbands' 40th birthday and not only did it look absolutely stunning but also the flavours of the macaroons were amazing. I had been let down by the original cake maker and Elle was the only person who was able to come up with a great, thought-through proposal and has been absolutely reliable. I can highly recommend her and can't wait for my birthday ;-)

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for our fantastic wedding cakes! The cake itself was delicious and lots of people commented on it. The decoration was perfect... It really brought together our Lego theme and was so 'us'! I especially loved the sheen on the icing so that it really sparkled

Elle made the most beautiful and delicious cake for my daughter's 21st birthday last weekend. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Elle so much.

Elle made us a gluten and dairy free traditional fruit cake and it was absolutely delicious and beautifully decorated.

Elle made us a brownie tower for our wedding cake which was amazing. Perfect, so much so I am getting her to make a cake for my husbands 40th

Our cake was beautiful and so delicious, best part of the wedding! Thank you so much Elle!!

Beautifully designed and personal touch to her cakes. Filling tastes amazing!!

Stunning cakes; exquisite attention to detail! Elle custom- makes to the exact requests/ whims/ requirements of the client. The results are as flawless as they come! From my first experience, I have returned time and again to Elle, who has produced cakes and iced delicacies even at relatively short notice. Always professional, Elle goes above and beyond to produce simply delicious and beautiful edible works of art!

The most beautiful creations, exquisite and delicious. Wonderful bespoke service to. Highly recommended

Elle made us a beautiful and delicious cake. We had a wonderful morning of cake tasting and discussing what we wanted as a cake - and the results were perfect!
