"Having seen photos of cakes produced by Mel, of Beautiful Bakes, I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted her to commission mine and my husband’s wedding cake. From start to finish we were met with warmth and humour and a real sense that she WANTED to make the cake for the special day - I never once felt like it was “just” another cake to Mel. Our preferred method of communication was whatsapp but I know she would have emailed me images or sent them via FB messenger if I’d have preferred that. Mel advised us on what would look good colour wise and font of writing and I like to think our quirky design made her smile whilst making it! As a result of this, it really was a talking point of our wedding and 6 months later I asked her to make my husband a 50th birthday cake around the theme of mountain rescue and triathlon - Mel didn’t disappoint! Thank you for all your yummy cakes Mel xx"

"Had an absolutely amazing cake from Mel for my Dads 70th birthday! My dad was made up and even a bit emotional! His favourite things all captured on a cake, plus the cake itself was delicious!! Would definitely recommend and will be ordering more cakes from Mel in the future!! Thank you so much xx"
"Wonderful service. Great prices and amazingly talented!! Cakes are scrumptious!!! Beautiful bakes is my first choice for cakes now :-)"
"Amazing looking AND tasting cakes. Personalised lovely service, at great prices. Wouldn’t buy from anywhere else now."
"Beautiful Bakes not only makes really gorgeous and creative cakes, but they taste amazing too! I really would recommend BB for everything from spectacular wedding and party cakes, to cute and fun little cupcakes. BB has made my son's birthday cakes for years now, and I'll be putting my order in again this year, and I always get some of the valentines cupcakes - I genuinely wouldn't go anywhere else"
"Mel made our wedding cake, It looked amazing and tasted just as good!!"

"I asked Mel to bake a cake for my husband’s birthday. I told her that his hobbies were writing novels and photography. I also emailed her a photo of his camera.She quickly sent me a drawing of his three books with an exact replica of his video camera on top. Mel delivered the finished cake to the venue. It was absolutely magnificent! David was thrilled to bits with it. The cake was really delicious. We couldn’t bring ourselves to destroy the edible camera, so we have frozen it for posterity!! Thank you so much, Mel. You have a great talent.xxx”
"WOW ! Thank you so much for making the most amazing birthday cake ever. Our son Moses had his 4th birthday party and the main attraction was his Lego Ninjago ' Golden Ninja' cake. I didn't think it was possible for a room full of excited 4 year olds (with a bouncy castle and magician) to fall silent but when the cake was brought out they did. Not only was the cake breath taking to look at, it tasted absolutely beautiful too. It was incredible. A massive thank you."

"Had a gorgeous birthday cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. Everyone loved it it tasted amazing and was stunning thank you mel x"
"We had our wedding cake made my beautiful bakes and it not only looked amazing but tasted lush! She dropped it off at our house bang on time and managed to get the exact design we wanted by merely swapping some sketches of ideas we had had. Thank you so much!"

"We had some beautiful cupcakes made by Mel for Christmas and they went down a treat! She went above and beyond - I would certainly use her if I needed a speciality cake - yummy! Xxx"
"I wanted a Harry Potter cake for my wifes birthday and gave Mel a few details and what she came up with was absolutely amazing. The Harry Potter book with Dobbie was not only stunning to look at but tasted just as good. The detail was perfect and I had a very happy wife. Nothing was to much trouble and Mel dropped the cake off at my house with no problems. Can't recommend Beautiful Bakes enough and we will definitely be using again. Thank you Mel."
"Received a beautiful Harry Potter cake for my birthday from Beautiful Bakes!!! Attention to detail was amazing and the taste was out of this world!! Will definitely be going back for more xx"

"What a super talented lady Mel is! Loved our wedding cake and could see how much effort went in to it. It looked beautiful and tasted amazing! Mel very kindly set it up at my venue and I didn't worry once as I knew my cake would be there and would be perfect. So glad I chose Mel to make it.
Thanks so much can't recommend you enough! X"

"We have had two cakes from Mel. First was a surprise Tinkerbell for my 30th and second was our sons christening animal cake. Mel went above and beyond with the detailing and we had many comments how amazing they both tasted! We had a few tears (happy ones) when seeing Harvey's cake. Thanks again xxxx"

"Thank you Mel for Ruby's beautiful 'In the Night Garden cake' we loved it. We will definitely be ordering her next birthday cake from you and recommending you to all our family and friends."
"I absolutely loved my perfect Christmas Cake. Chocolate on the bottom layer for the non fruit lovers and a scrummy alcohol filled fruit cake for me. My beautiful table centre piece which was a real talking point. Thank you Mel I'll be back next year xx"
"Mel baked a wonderful "little princess" cake for my daughters 2nd birthday. She loved it and the cake was delicious!"
"Mel made our wedding cake for us in May. We wanted a cake that wasn’t a typical wedding cake with flowers, we wanted a cake that was truly ours. As we got engaged in New York we wanted a New York themed cake. I showed Mel some of the ideas we had and the type of cake we wanted. We have to say she delivered 100%!! I saw the cake for the first time on the wedding day and I was absolutely over the moon. The attention to detail was impeccable and she had done a few little extra things as a surprise. The cake tasted amazing, we had lemon cake and victoria sponge over three tiers and our guests loved it. It was a shame we had to cut into it! :)"
Paul & Louise, Stockport
"When Mel agreed to bake our wedding cake we never expected it would turnout so beautiful. The colour theme for our wedding was ivory and gold and to our delight, the cake matched all our other decorations perfectly. The attention to detail was second to none and the intricate blend of gold and ivory colour running through the roses and cala lilies was amazing.
Mel personalized the flavour of the cake for us making it the most out of this world lemon drizzle sponge cake. Needless to say, once cut, not one crumb was left uneaten.
As with all cakes made for a special occasion, there is only one chance to impress and impress it did. I can highly recommend Beautiful Bakes for any occasion you might want to celebrate.
Thank you for enabling us to have some great pictures on our special day."

“My idea for my 5 year-olds birthday cake (Minions) was very basic – standard cake with maybe a few figures on top: What Mel came up with was way beyond what I expected and, needless to say I was absolutely delighted. The cake was so beautifully designed and made that it was almost a shame to eat it – but I can confirm that the cake tasted absolutely delicious! My son was so happy with his cake, and the rest of the family were beyond impressed (as proved by the fact they all posted pictures of it on social media afterwards!). I will definitely ask Mel to make cakes for me in the future – she is not only a skilled baker, but really has great skills and imagination”
"I wanted to say thank you for the cake ordered for my surprise baby shower party last Saturday. It was amazing both in taste and presentation."
