From the very start, Gareth was ideal to work with on our wedding cake. We wanted something very particular with a tiered macaroon cake and Gareth was more than happy to make this happen and work with any requests we had. The cake looked and tasted amazing and we would highly recommend GBC Cakes to everyone.

Gareth created a truly unique custom cake at our request. We wanted to create a cake that looked like the pub where we first met and Gareth paid close attention to detail and recreated the pub to delectable perfection. He added fun edible cake toppers that looked exactly like us. We kept them as they were too good to eat! Guests were really impressed with this work of art and it added a fun, novel element to the wedding.

Gareth was very helpful with the design of the cake ,and didn?t see anything that I asked as a problem.He provided amazing samples,so we could decide on the flavours that we would like and what would suit our guests.
I must admit I was very nervous to see the cake,as I had asked for our dogs to be on the cake,which Gareth was making from photos I had sent. I needn?t of worried,the outcome was better than we both had wished for,absolutely loved it,also tasted amazing and the macaroons were a big hit with everyone.
Everything about the service leading up to the wedding,to the actual cake was perfect.Would highly recommend.

Gareth was incredible to deal with. He created a gorgeous 3 tier wedding cake, and had no problem delivering the colour scheme, design & florals we asked for. The cake looked stunning, but more importantly it tasted gorgeous. He provided a tasting, it was very hard to pick a flavour! We were getting compliments for weeks after! Each tier had a different flavour and all were delicious. The cake was delivered to the venue so we had nothing to worry about on the day. I would definitely recommend GBC cakes for your wedding day.

Our cake was everything we could have ever wanted!! It was beautiful and absolutely delicious! Gareth drove 3 hours to Donegal to deliver our cake to us! I was planning our wedding from Boston and I didn?t realize until after we booked Gareth how far he was going to have to travel for us! He made everything happen for us seamlessly. Our guests raved about how incredible our cake was, and we even were able to serve some the next day at our day two! Being that I live in Boston, I was unable to do a cake testing. However, Gareth worked with me and sent my best friend who lives in Ireland the cake samples for her to help me choose! Thank you so much for everything Gareth! Highly recommend!

When I first met Gareth, he was very professional, the cleanliness of his workplace stood out a mile. He listened carefully and was very attentive. The cake flavours were to die for and everyone raved about them. His attention to detail was outstanding. I had previously had someone else doing my cake and when I met that person I wasn?t happy with her premises that I wouldn?t even try her cake. I couldn?t recommend him enough.

We booked GBC Cakes threw the services finder on Weddings Online and I can honestly say it was the best decision we ever made. Gareth was so professional and so easy to deal with. We were booking for Auckland New Zealand and were coming home to get married. I had initially told Gareth that our Venue would be in Cavan, which he had no problem with. We then fell in Love with Markree Castle in Sligo and forgot to mention that we had finally booked there, Gareth had no issue with this and made the cake delivery seamless and within the time frame given by the hotel.
Gareth arranged a cake tasting with us 12 days before the wedding which made our decision to finalise the cake flavours so hard. There are all SO GOOD.
We settled on White Chocolate and Raspberry Biscuit Cake, Coconut and Lime Cake, Salted Caramel Fudge and Carrot Cake, Each one was just as delicious as the next, best decisions we ever made.
If you are looking for the best cake maker, we honestly cant recommend Gareth enough
Thank you so much Gareth for the dream wedding cake, we will never forget it or you.
Best Wishes Edel and Peter

From day one Gareth was so friendly and helpful while responding very quickly to all my questions (which was alot). He made the stressful process of deciding on what type of cake, design and picking flavours so easy and as relaxed as possible. Not only did our cake and cupcakes look amazing, they tasted so so good and some guests at our wedding even took some of the leftover cake home to have because it was that tasty. We even went back to Gareth for my mams 60th birthday cake. Highly recommend!

I would 100% recommend GBC cakes.I had a 3 teir cake,white chicolate and honey comb biscuite,lemon drizzle and lime and coconut. We got so many compliments over the tastes. Initally I was unsure about going for two tiers of citrus flavours but they were unreal,really tasted amazing.
I was told by friends who had previously gotten married that I would have cake for weeks but there wasn't a slice left by day 2..some even made it to Chicago.
Gareth was easy to deal with,i can't recommend him enough.

From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted Gareth to make our wedding cake. Gareth went above and beyond our high expectations and he definitely did not disappoint, as per usual. When you book Gareth you know you will get a very professional service and a cake that is very personal to you, even down to the smallest details such as making a music note out of the ampersand (&) between our initials to represent Adam?s love of music. Gareth was so easy and professional to deal with from start to finish and the cake was absolutely amazing. All of our guests could not get over how tasty it was. We look forward to dealing with Gareth in the future and would highly recommend him for any occasions.

I was lucky enough to win a competion on social media to win our wedding cake. Gareth was great from the off, he treated me like a paying customer spending a lot of time messaging back and forth planning the cake we wanted. He even sent us a free tasting box via post so we would be happy with the flavours as well as the look of the cake on the day. The only problem we had was trying to narrow down the flavours to just three for the individual tiers they were all lovely but the knock out for me was the coconut and lime flavour, it was amazing! Everyone was talking about how tasty the cake was. We made sure to keep some for day 2 too so everyone would really appreciate it! When we first saw the cake on the day we were delighted with the finished product, it was exactly what we asked for.

Thanks again for everything Gareth

Could not fault GBC cakes. Gareth was amazing and so professional. He really understood what we were after for our cake and it turned out amazing. The cake was divine and looked amazing! We have chocolate biscuit, red velvet, carrot fruit cake, lemon and coffee. We had a few guests who are gluten free and Gareth made a layer of the cake gluten free so our guests could enjoy our cake as well. While Gareth was decorating the cake he sent me pictures of the cake so we could see how it was going which was fab. We are soo glad we booked Gareth for our cake and would highly recommend any other couples to book with GBC cakes, you won't be disappointed.

We couldn't recommend GCB Cakes enough, Gareth was quick with his response to our inquiry he was friendly extremely reasonably priced and most importantly he took on board all our ideas and delivered something even better than expected! Our cake was fluffy not heavy the perfect slice of sweet after a big meal we also had donuts and the same they were delicious they looked so good you can tell Gareth loves what he does it 100% shows in his work. As our favours we asked for some biscuits with our initials and the date I honestly thought they would be small plain biscuits but no everyone commented on these! They were huge sugar cookie like biscuits with a layer of white icing on top with the initials and date done so elegantly and also a special bride and groom cookie each waiting at our seats which was the most beautiful surprise! I would recommend him again and again.

We were over the moon with our wedding cake! Our wedding planning was during the uncertain covid times yet they were so supportive and professional that we never worried about our cake. We were also travelling over from Manchester for our wedding; they were so accommodating in fitting us whenever we were over or being super organised over messages. The cake itself was incredible! All of our guests commented upon how unusual but amazing the flavours were (we chose a white chocolate biscuits type one, a baileys Victoria sponge and lemon cake). They just really brought exactly what we'd pictured to life! Could not recommend highly enough!

Gareth was just a dream to have as our wedding cake maker for our wedding. From the day we called to his house for the testing and all the flavours were so nice i could not decide what to go for. Was nearly adding an extra tier as was so torn between the lemon cake & the baileys with oreo filling. I told gareth what i pictured and he had it to a tee. Down to the pink roses to go with the theme. Cake was delivered to hotel and set up with no hassle for me but a quick message of reassurance that all was in place. I could not recommemd GBC cakes highly enough. A true gent.

Gareth was a pleasure to work with over the course of several months, and delivered a cake for our big day beyond our expectations. Gareth took on board all of our design requests and the real life production was everything we asked for and more. Apart from the aesthetics, each tier/flavour was unreal - far better than any wedding cake I've ever had, and it was clear that the ingredients used were very high quality. Having looked into several cake suppliers before settling on Gareth, he was also much better value than most.

We are so happy we found GBC cakes to make our wedding cake. It was absolutely stunning but also very tasty. Gareth was a pleasure to deal with and the whole experience was exciting and stress free. There was a large selection of flavours to choose from, we had chocolate biscuit, Black Forest and whiskey cake for each different layer and each was equally delicious and the cake was beautifully presented on the big day. I would highly recommend

I sent Gareth a picture of what we were looking for with our wedding cake & he said it would be no problem at all. We got sample boxes delivered which were absolutely great so we could sample all the flavours he has on offer.
The cake was exactly what we wanted in terms of how it looked and it tasted amazing too!
Thank you again Gareth

Gareth is absolutely amazing at what he does. From the first time I contacted him to see if he was available until the day of the wedding everything was just so easy. He made the most amazing 3 tier semi-naked cake with fresh flowers. It looked fantastic and the three flavours we picked were just amazing. We had so many compliments on the cake as we decided to cut the cake after the wedding ceremony so our guests could enjoy it with their pre-dinner drinks. I could not reccommend Gareth highly enough.

I would highly recommend GBC Cakes for a wedding. Everything about the cake and his service was fantastic. I came across GBC Cakes on Instagram when on the look out for a cake supplier and I?m so glad that he made our wedding cake. We chose a three tier cake: chocolate biscuit cake, lime and coconut and coffee. Gareth sourced beautiful flowers for the cake and it looked like a piece of art on display. The whole cake was so fresh and tasted great. It also held together well when cut. The lime and coconut was a real favourite of ours. It?s somewhat similar to a lemon drizzle cake with a bit of added texture from the coconut. Gareth is a real professional and his cakes are top quality. You won?t regret booking in with him for your wedding cake.

I booked Gareth based on previous couples reviews & was so glad I did. Gareth was so pleasant to deal with,responded to any queries almost immediately and our wedding cake was something I never had to worry about in Gareths capable hands! We received a delicious tasting box (the only downside was it was near impossible to only pick 3 flavours!). Our cake on the day was perfect, it was both delicious and beautiful to look at. GBC cakes were extremely good value and I would highly recommend to any couple looking for their wedding cake! Thanks so much Gareth!

Gareth was fantastic to work with. He was very quick to respond to my emails and was very flexible and accommodating with all my ideas.
The cake turned out amazing, even better than I could have imagined. The lemon drizzle cake and white chocolate and honey comb biscuit cake taste incredible. The hardest part was picking the flavours because they all taste delicious.
We had our baby christened recently and we didn't hesitate in going back to Gareth for the christening cake and would reccomend him to anyone looking for an occasion cake.

Gareth from the first message was brilliant when we enquired to see was our wedding date free which it was so we were offered a a tasting box which was so delicious and immediately decided Gareth was going to make our wedding cake. The tasting box was a great way of including family in the wedding prep and also a nice chance to sit down with a hit cup of tea and some nice treats to enjoy. The wedding cake was fab and the right size advised for our numbers on the day.

We have been to a few weddings where Gareth had made the cakes so I knew when it was our turn to find someone to make our wedding cake it was always going to be GBC cakes without a doubt!!! We meet with Gareth for our cake tasting and from the minute we sat down he was so professional and helped us so much with our cake choice. Anything we asked Gareth he was so happy to help. We went with 3 tiers , Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle and white chocolate and honeycomb. When we seen our cake on our wedding day it was thee most amazing cake, it was perfect and the taste was even better every tier was delicious. We can?t thank GBC cakes enough and would highly recommend to any future couples!!!!

Highly recommend Gareth. Great with communication and once I booked I had put the cake out of my mind until I got an email from Gareth the week before to finalise flavours, design and payment. I didn't need to give it a second thought after. The 3 tier cake was there set up by him the morning of the wedding and there was more than enough for 70 of us - would have fed double that but I wanted 3 tiers! The cake itself was delicious and we got great use of it in the following days for day 2 and relatives staying for a few days. A very important thing to us was that compared to other quotes I got GBC Cakes was great value. At the end of the day it's a cake and I wasn't willing to spend an over the top amount of money on it. I appreciate the work that goes into these cakes but a wedding is an expensive thing and once the cake is yum and the service excellent that's all you can ask for and GBC Cakes provided that 100%

Gareth made our wedding cake back in October and not only was the cake identical to a picture I had sent him but each tier had a different flavour which were all amazing. We choose Chocolate biscuit, red velvet, baileys madeira and lemon drizzle and they exceed my expectation. The tasting box has so many gorgeous flavours its hard to narrow it down. Would definitely order again for other occassions and highly recommend.

He was a dream to deal with, as we changed our Wedding date 5 times, due to covid19, he was so accommodating and nothing was an issue. It was so stress free, as he delivers and sets up the cake in your venue. So many people asked where we got our cake, as it was so tasty, we had 4 tiers, all different flavours.. it was yummy!!
We would defo reccomend him.

Gareth was amazing to have from start to finish he was so kind to us throughout our postponement and we were incredibly lucky that he was still available for our new date. We had the pleasure of meeting gareth in person when he invited us to taste samples of his cakes! I had to be rolled out and found it extremely hard to choose a flavour as they were all amazing. We opted for a 2 tier buttercream cake filled with Belgian chocolate biscuit and Lime and Coconut sponge for our 2nd tier! Our guests and ourselves couldn't get over how scrumptious both the cakes were, gareth is a true talent and a pure professional and pulled out all the stops In ensuring we had the cake of our dreams I would like to highly recommend Gareth and we cant thank you enough for your time effort and sheer talent so thank you, thank you thank you

Gareth was a perfect vendor to deal with, as we where planning during Covid we never got to meet in person but he was always very response by phone & email. He sent us out a fab taster box (it took us 2 days to try them all). He looked over reference pictures he gave us a very competitive quote, offered to lend us a wooden base to match in with our theme at no additional cost - the cake was delivered & set up at the venue on morning of our wedding without any fuss- we where delighted with the final product and got great feedback (luckily we got to keep a few slices for our honeymoon!).
We wouldn?t hesitate to recommend Gareth/ GBC cakes to anyone looking for amazing cakes that look great with amazing & seamless service to boot

He went above and beyond for us, accommodating us rescheduling our wedding, providing a wedding cake taster box for us during covid restrictions to ensure we didn?t miss out on the wedding experience. He decorated our tables and provided an excellent service that guests still talk about. He is a true gentleman and so very easy to deal with. We will be forever grateful to Gareth for providing a stress free day for us and for producing fabulous food and service. Highly recommended.

Loved it and really didn?t want to cut it (ruin it!)

Gareth what can we say you are absolutely amazing and we really cant thank you enough for all your help and assistance over the last year. I'm sure it has been so stressful for you with all the chopping and changing we had to do but nothing was a hassle and you were always so calming to chat with.
We had to Change or date from April to November due to the Covid 19 pandemic. When November came we decided to pull the date again and decided on a date in January 2021. Due to the governments new measures announced for weddings after 2nd of January we were lucky enough to tie the knot on the 31st of December. Gareth got 2 days notice to make our wedding cake and still managed to work his magic and made us the most elegant and delicious cake we ever could have asked for.
We chose his White Chocolate and Honeycomb Biscuit cake for our base tier and all I can say is WOW this is a real treat, I didn't want to share it with anyone. We then chose Lemon Drizzle with lemon curd filling, there was a fantastic flavour from this cake and you could really taste the tang of the lemon and the lemon curd was so silky smooth. Our top tier was Red Velvet filled with Cream Cheese and Passion fruit Buttercream. It was so light, the filling was so creamy and not to sweet or overpowering with cream cheese and the passion fruit gave it a lovely bump.
The cake was elegantly iced and finished with flowers and greenery which was all provided by Gareth so it took the hassle out of it for us having to order extra flowers. Gareth Even gave us advice on the best cake topper to choose.
Brides and Grooms all I can say is don't pass this man. He is just so nice to deal with, so professional and all willing to give the best advise to suit your needs.
As i said he only ended up getting 2 days notice to make our cake and he still didn't let us down.
We Can't wait to use GBC Cakes again. It was the best experience I've ever had and we really can't Thanks Gareth enough.
Best Wishes for the future Gareth.

We booked Gareth for our cake over 2 years ago when we starting wedding planning, as we had gotten amazing cakes from him before and I trusted him to do exactly what I wanted. This year, like so many other brides and grooms, I was under serious stress of postponing or not, and we decided to go ahead with a small ceremony and Gareth was so helpful in helping me decide on a smaller more suitable cake for our intimate wedding. The cake itself was absolutely amazing and our guests loved it, it even lasted for most Christmas as our desert! I couldn?t recommend Gareth enough, he was such a pleasure to deal with.

I contacted Gareth a couple of months ago and had advised him of my wedding date, although i haven't got mny responses of him on the running up on the wedding, he was very responsive closer to the wedding date. i thought this was actually a good idea as deciding on a cake/design too early would normally change throughout time. Once Gareth was responding about the request, he was polite and very helpful as i was a bride-to-be who wasn't very sure about the types/styles of cakes. He was catering for a chinese wedding. He was able to design the most important symbol ? (happiness) on a cake which is very important in a chinese wedding. The cake design that i requested was very "simple" but Gareth managed to make the cake look powerful and elegant as well as keeping it within the "simple" guidelines of my request.

He guided us in the right direction for our cake as we had no clue in regards to size, flavours etc to suit us and our guests.

Thank you Gareth for doing an amazing job on the cake for our wedding. It was exactly what we wanted! And it was delicious too - the small bit we got to try before it was devoured! We went looking for the leftovers the next day but there wasn't a crumb left! Our flower girl really appreciated all the sugar flowers, she somehow got the plate full of them all for herself ????

It was a pleasure dealing with Gareth & we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a cake.

So many compliments, from ourselves, family and friends, on this wonderful piece of baking! Four layers of heaven, chocolate biscuit, red velvet, lemon and fruit. I sent Gareth of the type of design I would like, he more than exceeded expectations. Our cake was both beautiful and delicious. It was a real slice of artwork and we couldn't have asked for more.

We had a completely stress free experience with Gareth. So friendly and talented. In the first meeting we discussed flavours and design and also allergies. Everything we discussed was taken into account and delivered. The cake on the day was beautiful and it tasted amazing. I would highly recommend Gareth to any couple and he will be top of my list for future occasions and celebrations.

Gareth is excellent.WOW!!! The cake he made for our wedding was superb both to look at and taste. The design was exactly what we wanted, it was stunning to look at and tasted unbelievable!!! We got the white belgian chocolate honeycomb biscuit and it was to die for! The other two tiers were lemon drizzle and red velvet and were amazing too. There wasnt a bit of cake left after the wedding it was all polished off, it was that delicious. All our guests where raving about it. Gareth was a pleasure to deal with and makes everything so easy. Im looking forward to the next occasion so I can order another cake off him!

Gareth provided a fantastic service end to end. His communication was superb, and the cake was absolutely stunning both in looks and taste. It was exactly what we had been looking for, semi naked, and Gareth worked directly with our florist to arrange the flowers. Gareth also very kindly supplied a beautiful cake stand which set the entire cake off beautifully in the venue. Highly recommend :)

From the moment I contacted Gareth I knew our wedding cake was in safe hands. Gareth provided us with our half and half county cake, which got great compliments, and gluten free cupcakes for some of our guests.
We also got him to make a fruit cake which we put out at our drinks reception and there wasn't a crumb left! We got many compliments on the taste too.

What can I say about Gareth. From the start he was 100% professional and accommodating. I simply had to explain the style I like and the colours I wanted and Gareth understood straight away. I did not have to give the cake a second thought after that as I trusted Gareth 100%. Poor Gareth even had to deliver that cake with the help of the River Rescue in the worst snow storm we've ever seen as we got married on the 2nd March this year. When the country came to a stand still. When all our other suppliers were cancelling due to the snow Gareth made sure at all costs that we had our cake for our wedding day. I really couldn't thank him enough. Plus it tasted amazing. I would recommend Gareth to anyone that would listen to me.

Gareth made our wedding cake in July. From start to finish it was a pleasure to work with him. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted. I took pictures of different cakes to show him the overall colours and designs I wanted and left it all in his capable hands. The cake Gareth produced was absolutely to a T what I had in my head. For someone to be able to piece together exactly what I wanted from so many different pictures and ideas is amazing.

The cake not only looked amazing but tasted out of this world. The only cake left was the cake I had the hotel save for me. Which might I add travelled to Australia the following tuesday and still tasted beautiful.

From talking and working with Gareth on our wedding cake it is clear the he is a professional at what he does. It is not only a job but he puts his heart and soul into the cakes he bakes.

We cannot recommend Gareth Connolly high enough. From the moment we met him he put us at ease. I was a coeliac bride so had the biggest fears For my wedding cake.
Gareth greeted us so kindly and bent over backwards to make everything perfect for us.
We had a 5 Tier Cake and wow. The White Chocolate Biscuit and Honeycomb Biscuit Cake was the last word. As for his Red Velvet it Cake it was so light I felt like I was eating a cloud.
We wanted a wacky themed cake to fit our wedding and Gareth, ticked every box. His design was more than what we could ever have imagined for our wedding cake.
People kept asking where it was from and who had designed it for us. It was a real talking point of the evening. So many fantastic compliments on the taste too (especially for been 100% gluten free)
Delivery and set up was also done but gareth which too a big stress off us not having to worry about setting it up.
Ladies and Gents if you want a wedding cake that?s handcrafted and out of this word, Give this young lad a shout because he is truly gifted and has hands of gold
Many many many thanks Gareth Blake Connolly, your an absolute superstar

Gareth made our wedding cake last year and to say we were pleased is an understatement. He made exactly what I asked for, very elegant, classy and timeless that will always look good in my photo album. He did everything to perfection and every tier was as delicious as the next. If anyone is looking for someone who is easy to deal with look no further, he takes it all so personally and really puts so much thought into his work which is why he was recommended to us in the first place.

I've had the pleasure of dealing with Gareth and designing a cake with him. He took every idea I had and made a masterpiece all the while keeping my budget in mind. His patience and advice was second to none, even when my ideas were a little outrageous. He is top notch at baking and designing but the visual and the taste beats all. Very knowledgeable, very kind and a pleasure to do business with which is why I have recommended him to so many of my friends and family who have hired him since.

I had in my head from the second We booked our wedding the kind of wedding cake I wanted. Gareth was absolutely fantastic and so patient. I changed my mind so many times about styles and fillings but Gareth was always so understanding. Gareth outdone himself with my final cake which had 11 tiers! It was done to the highest Quaility and everyone complemented how beautiful it tasted. I would highly recommend Gareth. He?s definitely simply the best!
