    Nicola did a great job of bringing my wedding cake vision to life. We chose to book with Nicola because as she had some of the best rates available within our budget, her display cakes were impressive, and the flavour/texture of her samples were great! Our only concern with her service was the lack of responsiveness to my emails throughout the whole process. Response time to my inquiries was typically 3-5 days, and I only received a response after taking the initiative to follow up again myself. When I tasted the wedding cake (the next evening, mind you, since I didn't get a chance to taste it on our wedding day) the texture was not the same as I recall the sample being during the tasting, however it wasn't unpleasant at all - just slightly dense. Flavour was enjoyable! Also the ribbon on our final cake was gold which did not match the silver accents throughout our decor, however I realized later that I had not specified a ribbon colour - so make sure that you do!!! Although I may have listed a handful of critiques, I would still recommend A Cake Story as a wedding vendor because ultimately my cake needs were based on a vision, and my vision was well executed! See photos of the vision and the final product. Thanks Nicola!

    Nicola was so creative with my cake design and it looked stunning! There were no issues whatsoever, and the price was better than anywhere else I had looked. I didn't expect to have so many people compliment the taste of a wedding cake, but it was DELISH!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding cake and working with Nicola at A Cake Story. We secured our booking a year in advance after meeting in person. We were fascinated with the cakes on display and enjoyed the samples that she had available.

    Leading up to the wedding, she was very accommodating in terms of providing combinations of flavours - cake, frosting, and filling - of what would and would not work. There were some instances, however, where we would not receive an email response for a few days and would have to send a follow-up message. One time though was due to email server problems. After following up though, it was a great experience. Nicola was very accommodating as she made samples of cake combinations that we wanted to try. After tasting these samples, we went with a five-tier cake and additional side slab using two combinations.

    The cake was delivered to the reception on time and without incident and was served as part of our late night offering. People enjoyed the cake and complimented us with how great it was. We're glad there were leftovers that we could share with family and friends.

    Nicola is great at what she does in terms of both design and taste of her creations. I would definitely recommend A Cake Story.

    Talented Cake Designer

    I had a very specific idea about the design of my wedding cake, and Nicola executed it with ease, talent and skill. The cake was delicious and beautiful, and there is nothing I would have changed about it. Great value for the pricing too. Nicola is definitely a talented cake designer combining taste and art.

    I found "A Cake Story" through google. I contacted at least 20 bakeries to see who could create my dream cake via a picture I had. NIcola was the most reasonably priced and had the most skill and detail which i could tell from her website portfolio. I am a very meticulous person myself and extremely detail-oriented so I wanted our wedding cake to be perfect.

    My hubby and I went for a cake tasting and I asked Nicola a few questions to make sure she knew what i really wanted for my cake. Her cake flavours were so delicious, and she made our cake EXACTLY how I wanted it to be. Our guests loved the cake flavors: Strawberry vanilla and Mango Coconut. We have even saved our top-tier to eat for our 1 year wedding anniversary.

    But my hubby who doesn't even like cake can't wait till he can eat it. :P We will recommend A Cake Story to all our friends and we will definitely order more cakes from Nicola for special occasions.
