Superb, that sums it up!
I bought the Taj Mahal cake as my partner and I went to see it in real life last year, so I knew that cake would be brilliant for my partner's birthday.
It certainly didn't disappoint - it looked stunning (and tasted good too!).
I have some dairy issues and Shelly sorted those out without any fuss, with communication always in a friendly manner.
I had to drive all the way to Scotland with the cake in the car, and it made it in one piece. I can only assume that Shelly placing clingfilm around the actual cake supported it in transit, so am thankful for that.
Many friends have also used Shelly for cakes and they always look wonderful and taste as good too. She comes highly recommended by me personally.

The wedding cake was unique, imaginative and well crafted and portrayed the Wedding Breakfast scene, with each figure characterized to represent each member of the bridal party and guests. The cake was moist, and demonstrated Shelly's flair, skill and craftsmanship.

I have ordered several cakes from Cakes by shelly and I am so impressed with the design and accuracy of the cakes. Especially, when I have asked for Character cakes for my Sons Birthday. Last year she made a Disney Walle which was so life like and this year she has made a Castle for our school Fayre. The cakes not only look great they taste great too!

I found Cakes By Shelly in the dress i bought my wedding dress from. I emailed Shelly and she was wonderfully helpful over email and gave me a very competitive quote. We never actually met each other, but i explained what i would like our wedding cake to look like, and on the day i could not have been happier! It was absolutely beautiful! We asked for a very simple and plain design, but it just looked gorgeous and we were so pleased with it. I would definately recommend Shelly to anyone needing cake services - she was great to work with, very prompt at getting back to me about things and did a fantastic job! Thank you!!Read More
