Kind Words

One of the most rewarding parts of my work is seeing the reactions of the lovely people I make them for and here are a few words from some happy clients - click each review to see the cake I made for them

"Kate made us the most glorious, perfect and memorable cake for our wedding. So many things about 'us' were reflected in it - down to the smallest details. Each and every one of our pet rats was featured, my husband's synthesiser and so many other things. I still have the little sugar paste models in my cupboard as I love them so much. I cannot recommend Kate highly enough. She will make you the most astounding cake that you will never forget! She's AMAZING!"

"Wow! I had no idea what to expect given the ridiculous brief I had given Kate (vegetable garden, 4 adults, 2 children, a dog, two specific soft toys...) and we were blown away by the resulting cake - the attention to detail really was remarkable. And the best bit? It tasted fabulous as well!"


— Charles Light

"Kate made me the most amazing birthday cakes! She made me a mixture of cupcakes and a big cake all of them were movie themed! She is so talented!"


 Jess Tout

"Your cake literally took my breath away, it was so beautifully detailed and crafted. The attention to detail and the skill involved really are to be admired. It far surpassed our expectations and our father was absolutely thrilled. It also tasted delicious. A triumph at the centre of the celebrations.
Many thanks. It was truly marvellous. He enjoyed eating for his mid day snack for several days afterwards too!" 


 Deborah Toogood

"Kate made such a wonderful masterpiece of my husband’s 50th birthday cake that of course he came back for mine! She comes up with so many imaginative ways to reflect the recipient’s interests, and not only is the outer decoration incredibly detailed and personalised, the cake inside is also delicious, with a great choice of sponges and fillings. We cannot recommend Cakes By Desire highly enough – we will certainly be back for thirds when the time comes!"


 Diana Drysch

"Thank you so much for creating a beautiful cake for my granddaughter's Christening. It was decorated perfectly for this occasion and appreciated by all our guests. Needless to say it was absolutely delicious!"


 Debby Plexico

"Such a wonderful cake! Perfect for my little Girl's 5th Birthday Party. Thank you so much Kate - the cake was delicious and everyone enjoyed it!

Definitely will be coming back to you for our next birthday!!"


 Ellen Worley

"Thank you so much for the most amazing looking and delicious tasting cake. So so happy with it. Very professional. Will definitely be asking for your services again. Thank you Kate very much."


 Karen Lally

"Thanks Kate for a fantastic cake. It was a huge hit at the Golden Wolf office and Ingi was super happy with his Birthday present. They all noticed the message on the phone and where wondering how you managed to do the logo so accurately. It’s quite something to impress graphic designers with a cake!"


"Thank you so much for the cupcakes, they went down a treat and everyone loved them!"


Nicola Wemyss

"Kate Hunter, of Cakes by Desire is a true artist. The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang cake she created for the Cotswold Festival of Motoring was amazing! It completely surpassed my expectations. When the box was opened I literally went wow! I have never seen such extraordinary detail on a cake.  The design, colours and icing combined into a culinary work of art. Clearly Kate has a genuine passion for what she does which shines through her work. Thank you Kate for creating a highlight of our Festival."


 John Barber, Cotswold Festival of Motoring Organiser on behalf of the Rotary Club of the North Cotswolds

Kate is very creative with her ideas, especially with her celebration cakes, but more importantly her cakes are so delicious!

As a local favourite its hard not to find someone who sings her praises - myself and my clients alike. She truly is a lovely woman to work with but my clients have also said how much they loved her attention to detail and personal approach. She genuinely wants you to LOVE your cake and will go above and beyond expectations.

"I can recommend Cakes by Desire without reservation. The cake, made for my husband, was unique and featured all of his hobbies. It tasted like no other … DIVINE. Thank you so much Kate."

"Kate produced this wonderful cake for my parents' Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Using a few photos and some information about my parents' life she designed it all, even doing some research on a few things and making a separate diabetic cake for my mother. Everything worked well with plenty of email contact up to the delivery date. Nothing was too much trouble and the cake was delicious - my parents were thrilled!"


Sharon Redbond

Very straightforward to work with CbD from start to finish. The actual cake detail looked absolutely amazing. Just what I’d asked for. The taste did not disappoint either - gorgeously moist. No mean feat on one of the hottest days of the year! Needless to say it went very quickly at the christening reception. Would definitely recommend! 


 Charli Clayden

Yet again Kate produced the most amazing cake for us!
Her expertise and attention to detail was so outstanding, and just as we’d requested, she really does go above and beyond to get things perfect for you!
It tasted absolutely delicious too and was such a huge hit with everyone!
We honestly cannot wait for the next one! Thank You so much Kate for truly making someone’s day! Oli also used his cake to give us all a geography lesson at the party!! It was so sweet to see, he was so proud of his cake and said it was the favourite part of his day!...thanks again!Xx
