Here are some of the kind comments my clients have made about the cakes I've created for them.


The shortlist for these awards was based on feedback from my brides over the past year. My brides gave me an overall score of 9.89 out of 10 on a variety of aspects relating to their wedding cake and below are some of the lovely comments they made about the cakes and service I provide.

Sue was able to give us a very comprehensive and personal service. She listened to what we were planning for our wedding and also gave us much needed advice and support. The cake was absolutely beautiful & fitted into our wedding perfectly, we had many compliments on it, both on look and taste.

Sue did a fantastic job with our cake. It was completely personalised to our day, from the choice of flavours to the way the icing refleted the lacework on my dress. The sugar roses were a perfect match to my bouquet. She listened to what I wanted and improved my vision. Great value for money too!

Sue is an amazing cake artist, her interpretation of my ideas were perfect. She fully understood the requirements and make it perfect. The communication, living at a distance left me really confident on the delivery for my important day. The cake exceeding all my expectations and more!!!

I advised I was looking for something different and seaside themed with beach huts and the design Sue came up with was beyond my dreams. The finished article was even better than the design. I was blown away along with my guests. The finish was so detailed and perfect.

Sue was fantastic and we could not fault her or the cake! She was easy to approach and talk to and knew exactly what we wanted and the cake was great value for money! Everyone commented on the day how beautiful the cake was.

My cake was stunning everything I dreamt of and everything I wished for and asked for. I have now recommended sue to a friend whi is getting married next year

Sue asked for my ideas and provided me with ways that these could translate to my cake, eg. Sue took copies of my lace dress to hand pipe over the cake, and finished with flowers in all the colours of my bridesmaids.Sue couldn't have been more helpful and communication was excellent throughout.

The quality of the cake was absolutely amazing. They flavours were really strong and all of our guests loved it! Sue was really friendly and helped us to choose the best design for our cake.

We were thrilled with the wedding cake Sue made us, it was a real talking point of our wedding. We had previously used her cakes for our son's Christening and my sister also had a wedding cake. We hope to use her for more events to come!

"I can not fault Finesse cakes and Sue in any way. I had complete confidence in her ability to create our perfect cake, both in looks and taste. She offered a large range of options and was able to create something bespoke for us which fitted our wants, needs and vision.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Sue make our wedding cake. We had a cupcake tower which looked fantastic and tasted even better. We would not hesitate to recommend Sue to anyone - it was a faultless experience from start to finish!

We were completely over the moon with our cake - it fitted our theme perfectly. Everyone at the wedding commented on the cake and said how lovely it was. Sue delivered and set up the cake quickly with no fuss which was fantastic. I would recommend Sue and her beautiful cakes to anyone!

I am thrilled with the wedding cake which was supplied by Finesse cakes. It is beautiful and a really original design which we love. It was a real talking point at out reception.

"Sue of Finesse Cakes was on the recommended list of suppliers used by Greenwoods. From the first time I visited her at her home, I was impressed. I was invited to sample the various flavours of sponges and discuss the options available. All profesionally done, including paperwork. Very pleased

Sue offered a professional, approachable service. Any inquires were answered either by email or phone ASAP. Friends and family commented on how splendid our cake looked and how well it fitted in with the theme. Sue worked with the venue and florist to ensure everything ran smoothly. Quality service.

Sue at Finesse cakes did an amazing job. She was very quick to respond to questions and queries, clearly researched what we were after and confirmed with me before going ahead with the design. Her cakes taste brilliant (lovely and moist even after defrosting after the wedding!) and look great.

I booked Sue because the quality of her cakes was the best I'd seen for the price. She was also incredibly helpful and friendly. When I went for the initial consultation, she really took the time to go through what I wanted and improved my initial ideas no end.

"We had no idea where to start! Sue made sure we were clear about all our options and we felt no pressure. Local company. Excellent quote service. Friendly.

 Initially I chose Finesse Cakes because of Sue's professional website and stunning cakes of her past creations. When we went to visit Sue, we found her very warm and helpful, and we knew that she would be able to interpret what we wanted, even before we were sure ourselves! Nothing was too much trouble, and we were delighted both with Sue's professionalism, ongoing support, and of course, the finished cake itself. As it was Sue we dealt with all the way through, we knew we were getting the best and most personal service from the start to our wedding day itself.

 The photos of the artwork on the cake were amazing.... Then the communication left me so convinced she was the right person for such an important day!

 My husband and I chose Finesse Cakes to create our wedding cake for us for a number of reasons. We wanted a local cake maker which is how we found Finesse Cakes. The website was easy to use, inviting and listed all the information we needed (including prices - these are sometimes missing from sites which can put people off from the outset). Arranging a cake tasting session with Sue was quick and easy and the range of cakes we were able to sample were amazing. Sue was welcoming and more then happy to accommodate our requests for something a little different. We booked our wedding only 3 months before the big day and Sue was able to take our booking at short notice and captured everything we wanted. It's one thing to have a beautiful looking cake but these tasted as fantastic as they looked. We had so many compliments on the day of our wedding regarding how stunning the cake / cupcakes looked and tasted. I have already recommended Finesse Cakes and am sure to use Sue again for future events as they arise.

She offered amazing value for money - and did a much better job than people asking three times the price she did. I felt confident we would get an amazing cake, and we did!

Designs were modern and different to the hundreds I'd seen on the Internet. The cakes are fun and imaginative.

At our first meeting with Sue she showed us cake designs and had some cakes for us and family to try. She was so friendly and professional we instantly knew we wanted her to make our wedding cake. She filled us with pure confidence on the day and more importantly filled up our wedding guests with delicious cakes!

Sue was honest and we trusted her. Her portfolio was really good and the trial pieces tasted gorgeous.

When we had our consultation we were very impressed with the taste of the cakes on offer and with the previous designs which finesse have produced.


"Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding cake it was better than anything we had dreamed of. We had so many complements about the cake and the flavour combinations from our guests. There was hardly any cake or cupcakes left for us once they had all finished. The handmade roses were so detailed and finished the cake and cupcakes beautifully. It was perfect and we will certainly recommend you to all our friends. We have the top tier waiting to be converted to a christening cake when the time comes and you will certainly be called upon to work your magic!!"

"We approached Sue to make our twins 18th celebration cake with little idea about what to do! Sue spent a short while chatting to me about my twins, their interests and likes and personalities, she then came up quickly with ideas and a draft design on what we could do to make their cake unique to them. Thie cake was a surprise to Amy and Ash so I took photos of their favourite items and sent them through my iphone, to our delight Sue replicated very smallest detail, every personality of my twins and the cake was a representation of their personal journey over the last couple of years - a fantastic way of expressing who they are to their delighted friends and family on the night of their party. I have now engaged with Sue to create my Wedding cake for my wedding this October.... Watch this space. THANK U SUE - AMAZING!!!!!"
Sally - 27th April 2012
