"Just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you put into designing our wedding cake. It looked amazing and really added something to our special day. It was perfect. Many of our guests admired the cake and it was a talking point. It almost felt wrong cutting it up and serving but it did taste really good! We've got the top tier at home so will be enjoying this for the next few days."
Stephanie and Martin, Twickenham
"I just wanted to let you know what a huge success your beautiful cake was at Tabitha's party. I have never known so many people comment on a cake - the children were entranced and the mothers thought it was a true work of art, as did I. The amount of detail and thought in it was amazing. Your cards disappeared in a flash, so I hope you get many more enquiries. I will be in touch this time next year when Tabitha is 7!"

"Our 'Aussie' Lammington cake was a massive hit - the whole lot went as it was very tasty and also looked beautiful. Shakera is very friendly and accommodating - we had a taste test before the big day which was great and she also went to set up the cake without any hassle. Thank you for making our day so special!  We'll definitely be coming back to you if we need more cakes!"
Ryan and Felicity, Twickenham

"We are thrilled when we saw the birthday cake, the cake was simply what we're looking for Conrad - bus 465, to Dorking!!
Thanks for making the day so special for Conrad, and without any doubt, the cake plays a huge part in this. I couldn't believe the extra length you've taken to make this cake (e.g. you took a double decker bus right next to bus 465, so that you can have a good look of the bus.) The details on the bus cake is unbelievable, and to come with it, are the figurines of the whole family, with Conrad wearing exactly the same outfit on his birthday and hugging his favourite soft toy. The bus stop sign where Conrad takes bus 465 has provided that extra special touch.
All of this are your fantastic ideas and masterpiece. All in all, your professionalism and passion for cake making are second to none.We're just so glad that we found you! We'll be back next year."
Grace from Kingston
"Shakera's cakes are absolutely delicious, from her cupcakes to the two tiered cake she made for my daughter's christening. Everyone remarked on how wonderful it tasted - the top layer was lemon with a jam filling and the bottom layer was chocolate with a mint choc filling - absolutely delicious! Shakera is fabulous and spends so much time discussing what you'd like so you end up with a cake that absolutely exceeds what you were after, and at a great price too. I'd highly recommend Butterbug Cakes to everyone."
Alison from Esher

"Shakera made us a really fabulously scrummy chocolate cake, decorated like a river scene. On top was a model of our river cruiser boat with me my husband and the dog onboard. The work that went into the cake was incredible, I was emailed the progress of the work as she created it for us and Shakera's attention to detail is quite remarkable.Totally amazing artistry and very reasonably priced for the amount of work put into it. She has another customer for life! I thoroughly recommend her and will definitely be back for more."
Shirley from Surbiton
"We asked for a pirate themed cake and mini cupcakes for our son's first birthday and Shakera showed us various designs to choose from. Her input was greatly valued and we decided to go for a treasure map cake. The final result was stunning! Everyone at the party thoroughly enjoyed the look and, more importantly, the taste, of Shakera's cake. I would recommend Butterbug Cakes to anyone looking for cakes and cupcakes!"
Kerry from Kingston

"We sampled Shakera's cakes and there was never any doubt we would ask her to make a birthday cake for Poppy - they were so delicious - I think I had two! Poppy's favourite book is the Hungry Caterpillar, as such we thought it would be a great theme for the cake. The finished cake was amazing in both look and taste, and loved by all! I am already thinking of what we'll ask Shakera to do for Poppy's birthday cake next year..."
Katharine from Teddington
"My son was desperate to have a George Pig cake for his 3rd birthday party. A friend put me in touch with Butterbug Cakes. Shakera was amazing, she sent me loads of different designs of cake to choose from. We were so impressed with the end result, the cake looked fantastic! All the kids loved it and it tasted delicious. We will definitely order from Butterbug Cakes again, the perfect cake makers!! "
Lisa from Molesey 





"Shakera we wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the most beautiful cake we've ever seen (and the most delicious cake we've ever eaten). You have been so fantastic, keeping me constantly updated while you made the cake, which made me feel so relaxed. The cake was simply perfect and exactly what I wanted. So many of our guests commented on how elegant it was and the different flavours meant that every single guest was able to enjoy our wedding cake. You have been so fantastic and I feel like you were a real gem to find."
Sarah and Ian, Guildford"

"We loved our we-got-married-in-Vegas-and-throwing-a-big-party-wedding-cake. The decoration on top was exactly as I imagined it and Shakera came up with so many cool ideas for the details I never would have been able to think of. As soon as the cake was brought out everyone took out their phones to take pictures and the top layer (red velvet) was almost 'demolished' within an hour. I was happy to be able to save 2 portions for freezing. The bottom layer (lemon sponge blueberry/buttercream filling) was so much bigger than I had expected that we had a lot left over (maybe because everyone had red velvet first and was too full) and I brought some of it into work and that was gone too very quickly. Everyone was amazed. 1 colleague said it was the best cae he ever had and another one that in general he never eats icing, but this one was very good." 
Marion from Teddington
The party went really well and everyone thought the cake looked fabulous and tasted delicious! Thank you for helping to make my son's day so special!"
Eleanor from Molesey
"We all absolutely loved the cake! When J brought it out, people ran towards it for a better view, and when J took it away for cutting, people followed him! He said he felt like the Pied Piper! Everyone was amazed and N said the cake was her favourite part of the day. We're still making our way through it (opted not to give any to adults so we could eat more!)
Kate from Hampton Hill 
"Just wanted to let you know that the cake was a huge success! Everybody was raving about how it looked and tasted. Jessica ate her figurine (every bit!), Bethan managed about half of hers!! In fact it was the highlight of their day - 'please can we eat ourselves now?' was asked many times before I gave in! The vegan cupcakes were also a huge success - my friend was delighted and couldn't believe how 'real' they tasted. Thank you so much."
Liz from Esher

"Thank you so much for fulfilling a last minute request for a personalised 30th birthday cake. The cake was amazing, people kept saying how expensive the cake looked and how good it tasted. It was definitely a hit on the night."
Stephanie from Hampton
 "My Butterbug birthday cupcakes were absolutely scrummy and they looked a dream. Thank you Shakera for solving my annual 'can't bake, must feed colleagues birthday conundrum', and at short notice too."
Brett from Blackheath
"Helpful, responsive and the cake topper was perfect. Will definitely recommend and use again when my cake needs require it. Made my mum very happy on her 60th, so thank you!"
Su from Surrey
"After sampling one of Butterbug's cupcakes I knew I had found the person who was going to make my daughter's first birthday cake. Shakera was professional throughout with a real personal touch.  She came up with some great ideas and really wanted to make sure I was happy with the design.  The final cake (pink icing with butterflies and flowers) and matching cupcakes looked amazing, each butterfly was beautifully handcrafted. Not only did they look good they tasted fantastic and everyone at the birthday party commented on how delicious the cake and cupcakes were.   Thank you Butterbug Cakes for a great service and amazing cakes.  I would not hesitate in recommending Butterbug Cakes."
Neelam from Twickenham
"When I first sampled Butterbug Cakes, I could not wait to place my order and having taken a selection of flavours to a gathering, the cupcakes went down a storm. My personal favourites are the rose and the lavender, but other people have different ideas and really liked the mint and chocolate! It was great that all the flavours, the texture and the quality were so positively commented on. Butterbug Cakes were a real hit for us and I will be placing another order very soon!"
Susan from Esher
"My daughter's 18th birthday required something out of the ordinary for the party. As grown up as she and her friends are, Peppa Pig and family have always captivated and amused. So we turned to Shakera of Butterbug Cakes for ideas. She didn't disappoint. The entire Peppa Pig family, along with props from the TV cartoon arrived safe and sound in a well packaged container all the way from Teddington to Manchester. My daughter - and her friends - whooped with delight when the cake appeared among the cocktails and alco-jellies. A reminder of the innocence of childhood among the accoutrement of an 18th birthday party. Brilliant! Thank you Shakera!"
Paul and Jill from Manchester 
"Thank you so much. The cake was perfect, so moist and absolutely delicious. Thanks again - you will hear from us next year!"
Brooke from St Margarets
