Saima & David couldn’t help us more from the moment we got in contact about our wedding cake. Nothing was too much trouble, four date changes and they were so accommodating. I have gestational diabetes and even then they both couldn’t be more helpful with making sure I could have some cake. My husband is a diabetic and he was delighted. Our cake looked absolutely amazing and tasted even nicer. Our guests loved it. The cupcakes are an added personal touch which really brightened up the following day. Will definitely use the guys again and recommend to anyone ever looking for a cake. Thanks so so much for everything.

Saima And David were an absolute delight to work with over the last 2 years with cancelling dates 3 times due to covid. They were always so flexible and we couldnt thank them enough for being so understanding. Very professional and so easy to get in contact with. And of course our cake was unbelievable, our guests are still talking about it. The best in the business.

I can’t speak highly enough of this supplier, not only was the cake looking spectacular it was so delicious. Saima was so easy to work with, so helpful and supportive during the pandemic also. All of our guests said it was the best wedding cake they ever saw and tasted. Everyone should get SD cakes to make their wedding cake. We will be using her for our future celebrations. So talented and creative.

Honestly, the best in the business. SD Cakes made our wedding cake on Thursday and our guests are still asking who done our cake. It looked amazing but also tasted fantastic too. SD cakes are the most generous, kind, patient and helpful people that I have ever dealt with, they really went over and beyond for us. We would highly recommend SD cakes ???? x

SD Cakes couldn’t have been more helpful. I had a vision of what I wanted and within 15 minutes of meeting Saima at my first consultation I knew she could see it too. They made some really great suggestions which only enhanced the overall idea. Their skill set is unbelievable and the level of detail both David and Saima go to to ensure the cake was just perfect was truly phenomenal. My husband cried when he saw the cake.... I can’t thank SD Cakes enough for making my vision a reality. Wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Saima is such a lovely person. She is so talented and I was so happy with our cake plans. Having to reschedule our wedding due to Covid-19 means that she is no longer available to do our cake. So disappointed. I would highly recommend any brides at the cake stage of planning to get in touch with her. So reasonable and her cakes are just perfection

We booked SD cakes for our wedding and from the moment we met Saima she was very helpful and professional. Her cakes are amazing! And her prices so reasonable, I was not able to find another baker willing to create our cake for the price we were given. Sadly we never got to use SD cakes for our wedding as we had to postpone and they were not available for our new date. However they gave us a full refund of our money (we had already paid in full) and tried their best to help us as much as possible. 100% recommended, just gutted we won’t be able to have you as a supplier on our actual wedding day.

Saima was a pleasure to deal with. From our first contact via email, she was very helpful and supportive as we had seen an idea online and she was happy to attempt at recreating it. In fact, the end result was even better. We had a fabulous tasting and knew that our cake would be perfect. Saima had multiple recipes to chose from and never pushed us on any selection. Everyone who tasted the cake at the wedding gave positive feedback. We have saved our fruit cake for the future! We really believe we are lucky to have worked with Saima, not only is she a very nice person, she is an exceptional professional and believe that she will be in huge demand going forward as her work speaks for itself. We will certainly be recommending her to friends and family.

I asked Saima to ice a wedding cake that a friend made for me. She did it exactly how I wanted it and the quality and the finish of the cake were excellent, she does the ‘quilted’ pattern brilliantly. Also the marzipan and fondant were soft and not too sweet. I thought the price charged was very good value and I would have been happy to pay much more for the service provided

We were delighted, we chose Saima to make our Wedding Cake. She was absolutely lovely to work with. We brought pictures of ideas that we wanted for the design and she sketched a few drawings which were amazing, the end result blew us away. The cake tasted like heaven. The flavors we choose for the cake; chocolate, pistachio, red velvet, lemon & blueberry, and jelly cake. My cake was everything I wanted and more it was totally perfect The level of quality, amount of flavors and professionalism. I just want to say that the cake was outstanding. She is an extremely talented young lady. Thanks for your efforts and your support to make our wedding day memorable. I would highly recommend her!

Say yes to the cake with Saima and just relax I promise you will not be disappointed! I wish I could rate Saima's work any higher. We had our wedding in April it was great to call up to her in March to taste her amazing cakes & chat to her. We had all the flavours we wanted - red velvet / chocolate / pistachios it was a great pleasure to meet with her she is sooo kind/nice/honest and down to earth and when I saw the display on the day I was blown away with her Excellent work it’s just beyond amazing and the PRICE is the BEST you could ever get believe me! Saima is extremely professional and every brides dream. Her creativity is amazing not only did it look amazing but the taste, wow!!! People were raving about the flavours. And moreover following the day of the wedding I passed by her place to say thanks she surprised me with a jelly cake as a gift it was so testy one of the best jelly cake I ever had, that was very kind of you Saima, thank you thank you so much for being part of our day!!!

We choose saima SD cakes to make our wedding cake after seeing so much of her work on Facebook we fell in love with the cake idea she had for us and we were not disappointed on the day the cakes looked amazing and tasted so good. We couldn’t get enough of it and everyone at the wedding complemented on it. It was very easy for us to discuss with saima what we needed and what budget we had. She was very flexible to work around it and tell us what we will get. Her art work on the cake is amazing and so detailed you don’t even want to eat it. Saima also went out of her way to get the cake to the venue on time and also set up the cake table perfectly. Overall we are very happy with the cake and service that was provided. We can’t thank her enough.

Saima made our wedding cake 6 years ago. When we first visited Saima she showed us pictures of her cakes. When we saw the picture of what we eventually chose I immediately fell in love with it. It was a 4 tier cake and the icing on each tier was a different design. I remember one design wasn't me so instead Saima made snowflakes instead as we had a Christmas wedding. The end result was amazing, so so elegant and the detail looked so intricate. The flavours were also amazing, for me especially the red velvet. I would highly recommend Saima and David to any couple planning their wedding!
