My wedding cake made by Rhian was not only stunning to look at but tasted amazing, three years on and various friends still talk about the chocolate cake. I had three different tiers, the cake disappeared in about ten minutes flat and there wasn't a scrap left.
I couldn't recommend Rhian more highly, I have since seen and tasted more of her cakes and they never fail to wow everyone.

Handmade with love is how I would describe the service provided by Rhian of the splendid Bakery. Rhian takes the greatest pride in creating homemade cakes to remember forever.
It is evident when you experience her work that she loves what she does and everything is such a personal service. I have used Rhian to make a number of special occasion cakes including my husband’s 60th and my daughter’s 18th; both were perfectly breakthaking. But the greatest has to the cake she made for Mum’s 90th.
I didn’t know what I wanted so Rhian set about finding out what Mum’s favourite flowers, smells and colours were and from this she created the most exquisite cake with intricate sugar flowers that included roses, gerberas and lily of the valley. Everyone gathered round in awe of that cake and still talk about it years on.
I am 79 and my new husband is now 85 - so not your average-age bride and groom! It was very important that we had a cake that reflected us - a modern cake would not have been right. Rhian listened carefully to what our needs and wants were and made the most delicious and beautifully designed wedding cake we have ever seen.
The guests loved it too which was wonderful. It could not have been improved in any way. The kit she gave us was an added bonus for any unforseen problems. A 5 Star service! Rhian's manner and approach was perfect for what we were looking for. As soon as we booked it we knew we didn't need to worry about any aspect of the cake - heaven when you are organising a wedding!

The Splendid Bakery are simply a delight. Incredibly personable customer service and consultation process, they are full of creative ideas to help bring your dream cake to a delicious and edible reality. The finished cake was simply breathtaking in terms of craftsmanship. It looked, smelled and tasted wonderful.
My wedding guests were simply wowed. Many came back for second and third portions! These are occasion cakes that taste as good as they look. I've heard nothing but great things about The Splendid Bakery. And the service and the finished cake was everything I could've wished for and more. I can't recommend them enough.

The Splendid Bakery created the most beautiful and elegant cake for a good luck to my sis-in-law who went in for major surgery. It was absolutely stunning, work of art and the yummiest cake I've ever eaten! Couldn't recommend highly enough.
The Splendid Bakery helped me when I was let down by someone else, with only 8 weeks to the wedding date. Rhian's customer service was amazing! I sent her a message and within minutes she replied back to me. She took the time to call me on a Sunday to discuss my ideas, and within an hour she sent me a drawing which was exactly what we wanted.
The cake was amazing, lovely flavours and stunning presentation. We knew we could put our trust in Rhian at The splendid Bakery as she has gave us 100% of her time to make sure that we didn't go without a cake on our big day. We couldn't have asked for any more.

Rhian was so lovely to work with from our first meeting through to the wedding day. We wanted to incorporate artwork from our wedding invitation that has been designed by my brother in law and she had many different ideas on how to do this and gave a variety of designs for our bespoke cake. Rhian was also very accommodating when I decided just over a month before the wedding that I wanted to change two of the flavours that I had chosen. It was so delicious we had no left overs!
