Dear Jo,
              We were stunned by the creativity and artistry of the cake you made for us. Although we cut the cake with some reluctance, the attendant figures remain to be preserved for posterity. The cake drew compliments all round, and the staff at the Loch Ness Country House Hotel said it was probably the best cake they had ever seen. And it tasted pretty good too!

Thank you so much for your contribution to our memorable day.

Have a lovely, restful, festive season.

Juliet and David. December 2014

Hi Jo

Hope you are well, Steve and I are now in sunny Mexico, having a wonderful time.

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for what a stunning cake you delivered to us on Saturday. I was totally blown away by your efforts as were many of our guests. We managed to get 5 minutes to look at the reception room before everyone else went in and the cake just looked totally stunning I couldn't quite believe the lace effect you'd created in icing! Everyone thought it tasted fantastic too :)

I will send you some professional photos when they come for you to show off on your website. 

It seems to me you are a hidden treasure up there in Glenlivet, I've been to lots of weddings now and I've never seen a cake like ours. 

Love Mr & Mrs Hinchin, September 2014

Hi Jo,

We wanted to thank you for our beautiful wedding cake! The call ducks on the top were just perfect & everyone was delighted by such a different idea. The fruit & chocolate cakes were delicious too & everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. We took the call ducks & their pond off of the top to keep.

Thanks again for helping to make our day special

Emma & John Grant, November 2013

Jo you are a star! The cake was wonderful and greatly admired. What an outstanding talent you have. I am disappointed I didn't get the chance to meet you but I am sure there will be other occasions that I will require your skills. Well done.

Just a short note to thank you very much for the beautiful cake you made for my daughter Abigail on her 21st birthday. It tasted delicious too. It was lovely to meet you and thank you for the tips!

Alison Dutoy, September 2013

Hi Jo,
Thanks for the beautiful 80th birthday cake for the 11th August - it was just perfect. Mum was so surprised by the whole day and when my brother just popped down the road to collect such a lovely cake she just couldn't believe it.
Thanks for all your hard work, the cupcakes also went down very well. If we are ever lucky enough to stay in Glenlivet again and are celebrating anything we will be back to you for another cake. Many thanks.

Lesley Pitt, August 2013

Just wanted to say thanks for the cake. We all really enjoyed it. I thought James would keep the snowboarder, but oh no, that disappeared too! Will definitely be in touch again if we need another celebration cake.

Gail Hilton, May 2013 

Dear Jo,

Thank you for making us such a beautiful and delicious cake! It looked wonderful and tasted lovely and we received many compliments - you may well be receiving some enquiries as a result. Thank you again.

Jill McConnichie, May 2013

Hi Jo,

Just a quick email to say what a brilliant job you made of Donna's Eiffel Tower cake. Everybody thought it was superb. It lasted the journey all the way down to Aberfoyle and then back up to Ullapool where it was devourerd!! Big thank you to your husband for delivery too. Well done & thanks very much again. Really appreciate it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know.

Dave Williamson, April 2013

Dear Jo,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the beautiful cake that you made. The design of the cake was exactly as I wanted and it tasted absolutely amazing. We had such a lovely day from start to finish and wanted to thank you for the card as well. I will definitely be recommending you to all my friends. A big thank you again.

Charlie & Laura Ferguson, April 2013

Dear Jo,

A huge thank you for our beautiful wedding cake. it was just as I hoped it would be, simple, elegant and the sugar flowers were simply amazing. Everyone I spoke to commented how great it tasted and I can vouch for the chocolate tier, it was scrumptious. I have kept the flowers, sadly, there was no left over cake, it was all eaten. Our grateful thanks.

Sue & Geoff Hanson, April 2013

Hi Jo,


Simply to say thanks for making the cake - it was fantastic and just what we needed.

Both ITV and BBC were there so it might make the TV tonight.

Many thanks

Holly McAuly-Brand, Cairngorm National Park Authority, March 2013

Dear Jo,

We would like to thank you for making our wedding cake and favours so beautifully! Everyone loved their wee cakes and it really pulled the colour theme together at the tables. And what an amazing job you made of the sugar figures....they were excellent! We both loved our banana wedding cake - the best I've ever tasted. Can't thank you enough!

Zocia & Scott Flatters, Januray 2013

Hi Jo,

Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for my Dad's lovely 60th birthday cake - it was absolutely delicious and he loved it! It was perfect and better than anything we had in mind. If we ever hear of anyone going to the Glenlivet area for an occasion, we will definitely recommend you.

Thanks so much. Vicci Leahy, Januray 2013


Hi Jo,

Just wanted to say that Brodie's cake is amazing! I love it and don't want to cut it up! There's obviously a huge amount of work that's gone into it and I just wanted to say thanks very much. I'm sure it will be admired lots tomorrow.

Lucy Meldrum, January 2013


The cake was a huge hit, thank you so much. Paul was amazed, he really didn't want to cut it and wanted to frame it and keep it. You did a remarkable job on it, the detail was perfect, the colour of the dogs, everything. We were all absolutely thrilled with it. You made our Christmas and Paul's 50th all the more a surprising and wonderful time for us all. Thanks again.

Jacqui Allison, December 2012


The cake was truly lovely and delicious. I have one last piece of the fruit cake in my freezer, ready to enjoy at our one year anniversary. Thank you for making us an amazing cake.

Julie Bettiol Pender, December 2012



The cake looked and tasted beautiful. It was a work of art. You are so talented. Many, many thanks.

Clare Ballinger, December 2012


Just to say the cake is delicious and my mum loved it. See you again on the 3rd January.

Lucy Meldrum, November 2012


Alasdair is delighted with his cake and burst into a nice smile when he saw it this morning. What a marvellous job you have done and Audrey & I appreciate all the time that must have gone into the cake, especially the accuracy and detail of the keyboard. We also have a dog preening himself now that he has seen himself in icing! Wow!

Alex & Audrey Benvie, October 2012


Hi Jo,

Just a wee note to say thanks for the cake. Everybody loved it and it was definitely the star of the show. Needless to say some of the girls became quite obsessed and had to dismember one of the men to find out what was underneath his hat!

Vicki Shaw, August 2012


Hello Jo,

Just a quick email to say thanks again for our beautiful cake. Along with all our guests, we loved the look and the taste of it. I even liked the fruit cake and thats a high as usually I cannot stomach the stuff and go straight for the sponge.

Gavin & Paula Fleming, July 2012


Hi Jo,

On behalf of Carly and myself we would both like to thank you from both our hearts for the cake that you prepared for us. The cake was simply out of this world and beyond our expectations. Your attention to detail was very easy to see when we viewed the cake on the evening before the wedding. Carly would like to bring to your attention the amazing chocolate cake that left her in utter delight at how delicious it was. Needless to say we are both very delighted at how you have treated us and presented the cake to us also.

James and Carly Franklin, May 2012


Just a quick email to thank you so very much for our christening cake. It exceeded all our expectations in it's design and tasted absolutely amazing. I think it received just as many comments of praise as Merrilees, and very nearly stole the show.

Thanks again

Paul, Helen and Merrilees Belcher, April 2012


 Hi Jo,

Thank you so much for the cake, it was absolutely amazing and Bobby loved it! Didn't want to cut it! It tasted amazing too! Will definitely be ordering one again in the future.

Amy Lyons, January 2012


Sincere thanks for the delicious cake you made for our wedding, it was perfect. Claire & Clark Douglas, September 2011


We have just picked up the cake. We were speechless- it is absolutely beautiful and will be the centrepiece on the table - far too lovely to keep as a surprise.  To have produced that in a week when I am sure you have other demands on your time is just amazing and am so grateful. Kay Geldart, 27th August 2011


Hi Jo, Just to let you know that cake has arrived on my desk. It is absolutely beautiful. Beyond all my expectations again. Thanks ever so much for the quick turn around. Vicki Gray, 12th August 2011


I just wanted to write and say that the wedding cake was perfect and went down well!  They were delighted and we were given a piece and it was quite delicious.  It also was split three ways and went to Canada, Brussels and the USA.

Until the next time.  Many thanks

S Marshall, 1st July 2011


Hi Jo,

Apologies for not writing sooner.  We want to thank you for the beautiful cake you made for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary last month.  Everyone loved the ruby coloured icing and the ivory sugared bouquet on top just made it look very special.  It also tasted very good indeed.  Thank you for helping to make our celebration so special.

Manuela and Robin Hassall, 23rd June 2011


Hi Jo

Sorry for the late email.

Thank you so much for the most amazing cake. It was amazing. How do you do that?! I think the word my sister used along with many others was "incredible". It really was.

Thanks again

Pippa Barnett, 8th June 2011


Dear Jo,

We had a lovely birthday party on Saturday. The cake was a BIG success, so many parents were asking where did I get the cake from. The staff at the Play Barn came to me and asked who made this cake. Next time I must make sure the business card is on the box. Today when I picked up Maribel the nursery staff asked after your web address...

Thank you for yet another lovely piece of art!!!!

Merit, 25/05/2011


Dear Jo

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing cake you made for Davy's 50th Birthday. He loved it so much he refused to let anyone cut it!!!! Will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a cake and will definitely use you in the future.

Many Thanks Again

King Regards

Diane, May 2011


Hi Jo,

Just a wee e-mail to say thank you so  much for all your efforts with the cake. Not only was it stunning to look at but totally delicious as well! The Sugar Orchids were just amazing - you must have such patience. My Mum was just in total awe of it all. We still have some of the fruit cake left but I am thinking not for long as we all keep having to have a wee bit just to check it is still as nice as the last bit!!

Simon & Vicki Gray, April 2011


Hi Jo,

Just to say an enormous THANK YOU from David and I for the stunning cake you made for our wedding. It was perfect in every way and was definitely one of the highlights for us and the guests! We got loads of compliments and people coming up to us asking who made it so we recommended you to everyone, including the hotel staff! Also a big thank you for the lovely card you left for us.

Vicki & David, April 2011


Just a quick e-mail to say a big thank you for the cake - it exceeded expectation - I was delighted with the outcome and Craig was speechless and it’s not often that happens - had a great day and the cake finished it off perfectly - well done. I have kept your card - so will definitely be in touch.  

Leanne Chisholm, January 2011


Good morning Jo,

Mark did not like the cake, he loved it. The real present was not necessary at all.

He was amazed how detailed it was and Maribel loved the cat too!

Thank you very much!!!

Merit, January, 2011

Hi Jo, Just had to get in touch and let you know just what a success your cake was at the weekend! It was well photographed that’s for sure! (More so than Kenny!) No one could quite believe that it was all completely edible! It took Kenny all his time to actually put a knife into it to show them! It tastes as good as it looks! Brilliant! My two wee grandsons were most impressed that their Granddad had a trendy cake! (And want his hat, it’s “sooo cool” according to them!) Needless to say the hat has pride of place in the unit and will NEVER be eaten!

Many thanks again Jo for all your hard work, the attention to detail in everything was outstanding, I’ll be singing your praises for some time to come!

Shirley Cawthorn, November 2010


Hi Jo 

Its a little late but Id like to thankyou very much for the delicious cake. It was eaten by a lot more then 14 people and everyone thought it was great

Thanks again, expect a call for the 91st, maybe

Jane Lewin, July 2010


Dear Jo,

Just wanted to thank you for a beautiful cake. All the little details were on place- Iggle Pigles blanket and Upsy Daisy's dress! Just like from 'real life'. We were amazed with this piece of art and the little people were too! :-)

Thank you

Merit, Mark And Maribel

Just WOW!!  Your cake blew everyone away!  My husband's 40th birthday party was made perfect by your amazing cake, the detail and the thought that went into it left all party-goers gobsmacked, I think we all must have stared at the cake for at least half an hour!  And the bonus was it tasted as good as it looked!  Thank you so much,  we will definitely order again!

My Mum always taught me that 'Thank you' letters should be hand written and sent by post. However, in view of the current postal dispute I am resorting to impersonal e-mail.

I just wanted to thank you for the incredible cake that my family commissioned from you for my birthday. It was fantastic and everyone who saw it were stopped in their tracks. It was out of this world - and tasted wonderful too.

Thank you so much


November 2009


I only came back to work yesterday but wanted to send you a big thank you.

Mum was over the moon when we all arrived with out her knowing and the party went really well. The cake was fantastic and tasted as good as it looked although we were reluctant to cut it because it was so beautiful. Mum is going to put a thank you letter and a picture of the cake in the next Thistledown News Letter.

Dear Jo,


Thank you so much for our fantastic wedding cake. 

Your attention to detail was amazing and not one of our guest could believe that your flowers were made from sugar. You really were the toast of the town.

You truly put the icing on on our big day.
