Feedback About My Cakes From Customers and Critics

I have had the pleasure of making cakes for so many customers now, from huge corporate clients to people that have bought just 1 small cupcake off of me at a fair. I love speaking to customers and of course, am even happier when they love what they’ve just eaten! My business is all about making delicious wedding cakes, using sustainable ingredients to enhance the flavour and finish. The comments below are taken from my Facebook and Google reviews and comments, and from personal messages sent to me by customers.

A really beautifully crafted cake, even layered, perfectly finished in its ‘naked cake’ style. The crumb proved moist and flavourful, the blackcurrant filling resonantly fruity, the sweetness perfectly pitched. We liked the restrained sweetness, everything in beautiful balance. This has been made with real skill and care, with concern for quality, and is truly delightful in its relative simplicity.

The cake itself is light and moist and although sweet, is offset by a sharp, blackcurrant buttercream. Nice to see Fairtrade and free-range, organic ingredients used.

The four layers are punctuated by a pretty, purple filling. We loved the fruity filling which contrasted nicely with the fine, moist crumb of the cake and proved moreish in combination.

The sponge is beautifully made with a moist, well-risen crumb. The blackcurrant filling has a pleasant acidity and fruitiness, as well as bringing an attractive colour to the cross-section.

Working with LFL was completely stress free and very professional. LFL provided a consultation plus tasting to discuss design ideas and flavours, this was followed by a quote breakdown and spec which was very helpful and gave me LFL’s vision. Delivery and setup was seamless, so I had no worries on the day. All the cakes met the brief, looked amazing and tasted delicious and were very moist, plus the extra touches of wooden stand and flavour menu completed the look. Would highly recommend.

Lara was such a lovely and experienced lady to work with. I met her at a wedding fayre and straight away she listened to exactly what I wanted for our cake without pushing for business. Lara met with myself and my groom to taste a few flavours and discuss the cake decoration. She advised where appropriate and was patient with our decision making. What’s more, Lara’s cakes were absolutely delicious and we were thrilled with the overall look and taste. We had so many great compliments about it.

Lara took the time to visit us and home and meet with us/ get to know us before designing our cake. It was everything we asked for and more as Lara made suggestions and helped us realise the very tentative thoughts we initially had. She was also incredibly patient and kind when I was trying myself up in knots overthinking cake stencil patterns!! The finished result was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by everybody.

Our previous cake supplier let us down last minute, we saw Love from Lila at a wedding fair and was very impressed, she made arrangements to come to our home and she designed our cake as we requested, provided a draft picture, all communication and service was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. On the day, our cake exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend this supplier. All our guests were so impressed with the cake.

“The cake really was everything we asked for and more – it was so tall and a guest asked me if it was actually real as it looked so perfect! I am also told it was delicious (I did sneak some icing and it was very tasty!). We have frozen the top tier so we can enjoy it for our first anniversary. I really do feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such lovely suppliers on our big day so thank you again from both of us for being so patient and kind in the run up and planning stages”.

“Lara is so organised, professional and friendly, she provided a rough sketch of the cake we asked for on the day I didn’t imagine it would be an amazing as it was. Lara responded to emails very promptly. So pleased we used Love from lila xx, can’t recommend her enough not only beautiful but yummy cakes”.

“Thank you so much for the beautiful cake. I didn’t actually have a chance to eat it myself but I heard the guests really enjoyed it so well done!”

J&H, Pennyhill Park (Camberley, Surrey), 2019

“Love from lila xx cakes are just amazing. Right from the initial meeting with Love from lila xx, she really listened to exactly what we wanted. She came to visit us with cake samples. All of which were absolutely fantastic. Once we decided on a design it was carried it out exactly. We both could not have been happier with our wedding cake. Our guests loved it so much that we didn’t get a slice. I believe that the best advert for a wedding cake is that every last crumb was eaten. I cannot recommend Love from lila xx enough”.

S&H, Silvermere Golf Club (Cobham, Surrey), 2019

“I would highly recommend using Love from Lila. Working with Lara was completely stress free and very professional. I requested 2 cakes, a small one for my wedding in October and a larger cake for my wedding celebration party in December. Lara provided a consultation plus tasting to discuss design ideas and flavours, this was followed by a quote breakdown and spec which was very helpful and gave me Lara’s vision. Delivery and setup on both occasions was seamless, so I had no worries on the day. Both cakes met the brief, looked amazing and tasted delicious, plus the extra touches of wooden stand and flavour menu completed the look. Also great comments from my guests. Thanks again Lara”.

“Many thanks for the gorgeous cake you made for me yesterday. We were so pleased with it and everyone was asking me who had made it. Totally delicious and the only thing I wish was that we had made it bigger as the whole thing was eaten within 60 minutes!”
