Colin Spofford - 30 Aug 2018

Thank you for the cake you made for our birthday celebration.

It was fantastic and people were queuing up to take photographs.

It was a real talking point and I think photos of it on Twitter nearly went viral.

This really was the icing on the cake for our big party.

Mr & Mrs Vaughan - 13 Mar 2018

Many Thanks to you and the team at The Cake Shop.

I would liek to say thank you for the amazing cake for Malcolm's 60th. It had pride of place in the room at the party and we didn't want to cut it up. Everybody recognised the car and all took photos of it.

You have been charming to deal with as was your driver that delivered the cake. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved.

Mr and Mrs Monk - 10 Oct 2017

We must write to thank your Banbury shop for the exceptional 'swimming pool' 21st Birthday cake you made for Jack's celebration last weekend. Your representation of the 'Sharks' swimming pool drew great admiration and the colouring and modelling made his day.

Thank you so much

Ms Nyumbu - 12 Jul 2016

The Shoe cake design for my daughter's 21st birthday was amazing thanks to Patrick and the team at the Oxford branch for their creativity and craftsmanship to execute the work with great precision. The Cake shop continues to surprise me over the years and cannot think of anyone to bake me cakes for those special occasions. The prices are worth the work that goes into it not to mention the smooth and succulent taste of the cake. Thank you to all the team.  Memory

Paul Johnson - 13 Jun 2016

Just a quick note to thank you for the fabulous beehive cake that you made for my wife’s 50th birthday. It was everything we wanted and was admired by everyone who came to her party on Saturday. I really appreciate all your help with this.

Many thanks

Debbie Adams - 16 Feb 2016

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made and decorated the cake I ordered for my daughters 30th birthday. The cake looked absolutely amazing and tasted wonderful, my daughter and grand- daughter were totally overwhelmed, at one point we didn’t know whether to cut the cake or admire it further!

Mrs Shackleton - 04 Jan 2016

Thank you for my deliciously Chocolately Wedding Cake which your made and delivered to The Randolph last Saturday.  It was fabulous, everybody loved it, and the gluten free mini versions thrilled my brother and sister who are both coeliacs.  As you said, the top was easy to separate from the base and we rescued some to bring home.  I might have worried, being such a busy time of year, but you but delivered right on time. Happy New Year and Sincere Thanks for helping to make our day so memorable.

Jimi Hendrix cake

I'd just like to say a huge thank you for my daughter's 28th birthday cake.  The staff were brilliant and weren't phased at all when I asked for a Jimi Hendrix cake. The cake looked amazing when I collected it and it tasted fantastic. So many people said it was the best chocolate cake they had ever eaten. I will definitely use The Cake Shop again. The quality and service are exceptional. Thank you nd can you please pass on my thanks to the Banbury ladies too. xxx

Mrs Foggett - 04 Jan 2016

Just had to write and say thank you so much for the amazing Hobbit House cake and cupcakes you made for my husband's 60th birthday party. He and all our guests were absolutely blown away by it, and it was an especially big hit with the children! It goes without saying that I will highly recommend your shop to all our family and friends, and will definitely use you again if I ever need a special cake in the future. Many thanks again, and a very big pat on the back/s for an excellent job!

Cake for retirement

Many thanks for yet another brilliant cake, our colleague was so very pleased with it and the detail was just perfect.

We had lots of people asking where we got the cake from too !

Mary S - 23 Dec 2015

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake you made for my son.

The porters at Wadham contacted him telling him that there was 'something delicious waiting for him at the Porters Lodge.' Nicholas said it was indeed delicious!

Marje Randall - University of Oxford - 08 Dec 2015

Just a note to say a massive thank you to yourself & your team for the wonderful cake supplied for the opening of the Blavatnik School of Government.

It was very well received by our client & fed a lot of people! I know where to come should I require any cakes in the future…

Tara M - 28 Nov 2015

A quick email to thank you, the wedding cake you created for us was absolutely fantastic. It arrived  at the RAF Club London, safely and was beautifully displayed. It looked fantastic, tasted great and the detail was incredible. It was quite a talking point and looks fabulous in the photos.

Jo Hilton - 23 Nov 2015

Just a quick email to thank you all for the wonderful (but unusual Wedding cake) of a dog agility arena.  Sally did a fabulous job. The Groom explained to all the guests that he had the responsibility of the cake and told the story behind it.  The place was in an uproar of laughter and the cameras were going mad.  Your cake is famous! It went down well with the Bride and she just loved the dogs of the cake and recognised her own two collies.

Mrs Short - 23 Nov 2015

Thank you very much for the lovely 90th birthday cake you and staff made for my dad.

All the family were thrilled with cake and thought the figure looked just like dad.


Mr and Mrs Cullington - 15 Nov 2015
Wedding Cake 25th October

We are writing to thank you for making such a lovely wedding cake for Anese and our son, John.   It was so beautifully executed, Anese and John were very pleased with it and everyone admired it at the Wedding Reception.    But equally, if not more important, was the fact that the actual cakes were delicious - all three of them. - quite the nicest we have tasted.
