I am delighted to share with you the feedback and testimonials given by my brides that supported my entry in the 2015 The Wedding Industry Awards.  I have now been given the comments left by the many brides who voted for me. Here are just a selection..


“Sam created our dream wedding cake! She made herself available twice as we were so undecided about what we wanted. She responded to countless emails from me about little details and until the day I was unaware that she’d even gone to the trouble of getting the exact rose I was having in my flowers from the florist so she could copy it for the cake to the point I thought they were real when I first saw it! Everyone commented on the gorgeous cake, one of the most memorable parts of our day!”


“Samantha is such a beautiful kind lady and her cakes are stunning! Could not go to anyone else after seeing them and meeting her.”



“Samantha is one of the most professional and caring people I met during my wedding planning. Nothing was too much for her and she was so incredibly helpful and passionate. I really would recommend her to any bride and groom to be. I’m so pleased I chose The Pretty Cake Company and was completely thrilled with my beautiful cake, and all my guests commented on how beautiful it was and how delicious is tasted.”


“The cake was quite honestly the best cake I have ever eaten (we went for 1 vanilla tier and 2 chocolate tier). We were told by many relatives / friends that the cake rarely gets touched at weddings as everyone is so full - but in fact apart from the top tier our whole cake was gobbled up and EVERYONE commented on how delicious it was (my husband and I ate the remaining top tier while on honeymoon!). It was honestly the most delicious cake - and the design was perfect and so well executed. 10/10”

“Samantha was so lovely to work with, out meeting went really smoothly and she really understood what we wanted. She was willing to try out a new recipe for us and kept us updated with the progress. The cake on the day looked fabulous and all of our guests commented on how delicious it was. It was so great to be able to not think about it at all as she came and set it all up herself as part of the service. The whole process was seamless and enjoyable.”

“The Pretty Cake Company really helped make our wedding day so special. Our cake was absolutely stunning, it really was beautiful. Many of our guests said it was the prettiest and tastiest wedding cake they had ever had. We would highly recommend the Pretty Cake Company.”

“A fantastic friendly and extremely talented lady. Our wedding cake was absolutely amazing x”

“Had meet with many cake designers and company’s but did not have the right feeling until I meet Samantha she was so friendly and helpful with my ideas she was very patient and creative, love her.”


 “I have actually known Samantha for 5 years as I work alongside her closely as I am a wedding florist. There was no doubt when Stuart ’put a ring on it’ on Christmas Day 2013 who would be making our cake. Samantha took on board our budget, suggested flavours within it and made the most stunning cake which as a florist was an amazing replica for the fresh flowers I had for my wedding. Samantha asked details on every aspect of our wedding and which all of my flowers and foliages I was using so she could make ’Amnesia’ Roses, ’Sarah Bernhardt’ Peonies, Brunia Berries. Such a talented lady to not only create amazing replica flowers but to make the individual varieties. She is a hidden talent in West Oxfordshire who deserves recognition for her amazing takent, her hard work and dedication she gives to all of her brides.”

“It has been a delight having Pretty Cakes (Samantha) create my dream wedding cake! Samantha is amazing especially considering that we communicated while I was in Qatar via emails only. She understood EXACTLY what I wished for and couldn’t have wished for anything better. The cake was so beautiful and we all enjoyed it’s delicious taste! I’m bringing back some to Qatar to share with my family and friends there. Thank you Samantha!”



“Samantha makes the most stunning cakes that also taste delicious. Her designs are outstanding and she really does put so much into making them. Our wedding cake was perfect and we had so many compliments on it for its looks and taste. Lovely lady and would not have chosen anyone else.”

“Our cake was an original design by Pretty Cake Company and one that had not been attempted yet with amazing results! We couldn’t have been happier!”

“Dealing with Samantha was a pleasure throughout. She was very flexible and open to my suggestions, yet provided very valuable advice and expertise to the process of designing and making our fabulous cake. All the guests loved the way it both looked and tasted. At the end, there was hardly any left!”

“Our cake was absolutely beautiful. Stunning and unique in design, she takes extra effort and care in her designs which really shows through. Her piping skills are second to none, and her icing flowers look so realistic it’s hard to tell they aren’t fresh flowers. Not a simple pressed out flower in sight, we could tell a lot of time and love went into our cake. It was a massive talking point at the wedding and it definitely upstaged all the other decoration in the venue!”

“They were very approachable and easy to chat to. I wasn’t sure on the exact style I would like for my wedding cake and they were great to bounce ideas off each other. The flowers on my cake were beautiful and so delicate, they got the colour u wanted perfectly.”

“We actually live in Scotland but were organising a wedding in Oxfordshire so Samantha’s guidance and assistance were invaluable. Everyone commented on the delicious cake, it was set up beautifully without any fuss and she was incredibly accommodating. I can’t thank her enough for her professionalism”

“Great name. Efficient website many detailed pictures. Local. Friendly. Professional. Informative. Helpful.beautiful end result. Tasted Devine.”


“The Pretty Cake Company were fabulous from start to finish. They actually made arranging the cake the easiest part of my wedding. They completely understood the scale and design I wanted - I wanted a 5 tier elegant cake which was beautifully put together.”

“What can I say other than if I could have scored pretty cake company 11out of 10 I would have , my wedding cake was 3 tiers all different flavours and all absolutely delicious.The only thing wrong with the cake was it went too quickly and wasn’t enough, due to guests eating a piece of all the different flavours. The decoration was exceptional and 100% what I had asked for . Just waiting for an excuse now to order another one!”

“loved the cake, beautiful, tasty and was just what we wanted.”

“The cake that was delivered to us on our wedding day exceeded all expectations & pulled our theme together perfectly. Sam is a true professional & I would not hesitate to recommend her to other people, she will certainly be our first port of call for all future cake needs (assuming she isn’t too busy!). Sam is passionate about her work & even though you may not be able to articulate exactly what you want her professionalism & experience means you end up with the perfect piece of cake art!”

“Excellent service from start to finish , very warm and friendly made us feel very at ease and made a big part of our special day stress free , for me and my wife it couldn’t of been any better and the amount of people that commented that it was the best cake they had ever tasted backed this up . Will highly reccomend the pretty cake company to anyone and will be using them for any future events.”

“From the moment I met Samantha at The Pretty Cake Company through to delivering the cake to the venue she was fantastic, very friendly, professional and couldn’t do enough to help us create the most special cake ever. Our cake was outstanding, something I’ll never forget, a very very worthy winner!”

“I felt so comfortable meeting Samantha at her home. She gave us the most wonderful cake tasting experience and helped me to design a unique and perfect wedding cake.”

“basically it’s brilliant. She really understood our designs ideas, gave us extra things to think about and her advice was brilliant. The cake was so beautiful that I didn’t want to cut it. It also tasted as good as it looked!”

“We were very impressed from start to finish. Samantha went out of her way to understand and interpret the design we wanted for our cake, which was not run of the mill! She went the extra mile in trying out different shapes and designs for the petit four we wanted to display under our 2 tier cake. Her attention to detail is incredible, and we felt that we were in very safe hands from our first meeting with her. Nothing was too much trouble and our guests were absolutely ’wowed’ by the cake!”

“Samantha was an absolute pleasure to work with, listening to my vision whilst also providing professional advice to ensure the finished product was of an extremely high standard on the day. The finished article was exquisite and tasted delicious, receiving a multitude of compliments.”

“Amazing cake, not only did it look beautiful, it tasted amazing!!”

“We met Sam at a wedding venue where we saw beautifully arranged wedding cakes together with samples. We booked Sam to do our cake, where we met and she went through our wedding theme. The cake she produced was out of this world. So many of our guests have commented on our cake saying how lovely it looked and delicious it tasted. I would certainly recommend to future brides to be.”

“After having the 1st consultation with this company I felt at ease; she kept me upto date with the progress of my cake closer to the date which helped my nerves as so many other things were going wrong. The set up of the cake on the day was lovely and I was told by all guests how perfect the cake was. I can’t thank the pretty cake company enough for what she did”

“The wedding was travel themed and Samantha made us a cake that resembled a pile of vintage packing cases, with edible travel stickers of the places we had been before. Everybody was so incredibly impressed that they thought it was art and didn’t realise that it was the cake!”

“We were so happy with our beautiful wedding cake, not only did it look amazing it tasted amazing too! Service was amazing she even was kind enough to lend us a brooch for our cake as we couldn’t find one we liked to decorate it with! That’s good costumer care for you!”

“I met Samantha at the wedding fair at caswell house over a year before my wedding, the range of cakes she had on display were amazing, detailed and all very different. She has a fabulous reputation with the venue and also other suppliers I booked with. I knew she could make the cake of my dreams”

“Samantha is friendly, helpful and, above all, an excellent baker. We asked for sugar freesias and alstroemerias on our cake which she’d never done before but she did not say we couldn’t have them. Rather she embraced the challenge and did a fabulous job. Everyone was so impressed with the cake.”

“I couldn’t have been happier with the wedding cake that Sam Made for our special day. It was perfect in design and taste- it all went on the day! It’s design was perfect for our vintage theme and looked beautiful.”

“Samantha interpreted what we wanted straight away. The cakes were outstanding, delicious, moist, decorated exactly as we specified. Guests were very impressed. Such a lovely lady, who deserves to go far, her cakes are a credit to her. We wish her good luck.”
