Lynnette is a sweetheart, and Oh my goodness, she’s talented! I’ve never tried anything more delicious then what she bakes, plus, everything looks amazing. She did our wedding cake, the wedding favor macarons, and the cupcakes for my bridal shower. Everything was perfect.Sent on 28/02/2018

Delicious cake and amazing to work with!
Our cake from Swirl was definitely a highlight of our day!Sent on 14/06/2020
Lynnette and her team were amazing to work with and so accommodating! We asked for a couple of custom flavours, and they were happy to help. We really enjoyed going for a tasting to help us decide which flavours and look we wanted. We were even sent a custom sketch and quote after the tasting.
The cake itself was superb! Of course, I'm biased, but it was one of the best cakes I've ever eaten. We ordered extra cake just in case our guests wanted second helpings... which they did. It was so tasty! It looked beautiful on display and we've gotten many compliments.
We ordered another cake for our one year anniversary and can't wait to dig in a second time!
Thank you Swirl!
SWIRL Custom Cakes & Desserts's reply:Thanks Leah! The team is looking forward to creating the anniversary cake for you guys!! Mango and passionfruit with coconut cake- one of our favourites!!!
