Testimonials

Working with Pippa has been wonderful. Scheduling a tasting session was easy, and the flavours were delicious. The design process was simple and straightforward. Pippa did a great job turning our abstract vision into a concrete reality by sending over sketches and revised versions based on our feedback. We don't live in Scotland so most of our communication was virtual; despite the distance, Pippa was easy to communicate with and very receptive to our opinions and requirements. The cake turned out beautifully and was just as delicious as the samples. We (and our guests) absolutely loved all three flavours. I couldn't have asked for a better cake for my wedding day!

LOVED our cake. It was exactly what I was thinking of and each layer tasted amazing!
It’s a piece of art and Pippa is not only talented but a lovely human too! Nothing was too much trouble, and she was amazing at putting my vision to life and matching the fondant to my wedding colours which I loved! The sugar flowers were beautiful and looked so real!

Pippa made us a fab three tier cake, the top layer was carrot, middle was lemon and bottom tier was fake. The cake looked absolutely amazing! We wanted a more natural look which she absolutely captured! Guests were second guessing themselves wondering if the flowers were real or not. The cake was extremely moist and tasted great! Thanks again Pippa!

Pippa designed our cake for our wedding day in October. We wanted a bridal looking cake with a hint of Harry Potter and Autumn so quite specific! Pippa was incredible from start to finish and was very excited to get started on our cake which kept the excitement going for us too! We would highly recommend getting Pippa’s cake tasting box as it was a lovely thing to do together to decide on the flavours before we made our final decisions - it was beautifully presented and looked very special, you can tell this is a real love and passion for her!

Closer to the time Pippa invited us to her home cake studio to finalise our ideas and work together to get the final design. Again this was a great experience for us as everything we had done so far to do with our wedding planning had to be online (due to Covid), we really appreciated having that face to face with her! I had brought a swatch of my bridesmaid dress and Pippa was able to match almost exactly the icing colours to the theme of our day! On the day itself Pippa set up the cake beautifully and  WOW what a show stopper of a cake it was, even better than we ever imagined, it’s like she dipped into my brain and executed everything we were looking for.

 

All of our guests absolutely loved our cake and it tasted just as good as it looked! Anyone looking to book Pippa for their big day please do it, from start to finish Pippa has been incredible!

Thank you for everything Pippa!

Love Mr & Mrs Atkinson (aka the Potterheads!)

We contacted Pippa to make our wedding cake after she was recommended to us by a friend. Right from the first E-Mail contact Pippa was very friendly and happy to listen to all our ideas and requests. She quickly set up a meeting at our home with sample cupcakes for us to try. (Which were delicious) As we were having a Harry Potter themed wedding we had very specific ideas of what we needed. Pippa was not only very open to all these ideas but was genuinely excited about making it which made us feel very comfortable and special. Pippa also kept in touch with us in the run up to the day so we didn’t have to worry about anything and also delivered and set up the cake on the day at the venue. The cake itself was just as we had hoped for and tasted amazing. The intricate detail on the flowers and text around the cake were fantastic and commented on all day. We have had to keep the flowers as a memento. We would highly recommend Pippa to anyone needing a cake for a special occasion or just cupcakes for the weekend!

Pippa made our wedding cake and it was both absolutely delicious and beautiful! Everyone loved the cake and I seriously wish I hid the carrot cake before we dished it out!  Pippa was great, offering ideas and being so accommodating when we had to reduce the size of our cake due to COVID-19. Honestly can’t recommend Pippa enough!.

Pippa is so talented and amazing at what she does. We never met in person due to covid but that didn’t stop her making our beautiful cake for our wedding day and setting it up perfectly at Piperdam. The handmade sugar flowers finished off our cake beautifully. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and amazing tasting wedding cake. Thank you so much x

Pippa was great to work with leading up to the wedding, she knew exactly what we wanted and what she created was perfect. She made the process so easy and the day went so smoothly, the cake arrived on time and was set up exactly as we wanted. The cake tasted amazing and our guests commented on how good it tasted.

Our cake was arranged through the Old Course Hotel, St Andrews as part of their wedding package. We initially met Pippa in Dundee to discuss our needs and hopes for our wedding cake. Pippa was keen to help in any way and was receptive to all our ideas. We chose a combination of an upper cake with white icing and pale pink ribbon along with white cupcakes with pale pink decorations. We were delighted with the final result. Pippa matched the decorative icing to the ribbon we provided perfectly. The icing was beautifully tinted just as we had hoped. The decorations on each cupcake were exquisite and so beautifully created by hand that it seemed a shame to eat them! Our guests were amazed by the detailing on the cake and couldn't believe that the decorations had been made by hand. The icing was incredibly smooth with a perfect finish. The cakes themselves were moist and delicately flavoured with a delicious buttercream filling. The set up of the cake was perfect for us as there was an individual cake for each guest but also an upper cake for cutting which allowed us to cut our cake in a traditional way. We had a very positive experience with Pippa and could not fault her service, attention to detail, product or customer care in any way. Our guests were extremely complimentary of Pippa's work and many asked for her details after seeing her cake and tasting the cupcakes. Her work is truly outstanding. We feel extremely lucky to have worked with Pippa and experienced her excellent customer service, friendly personality and outstanding baking and cake decorating skills.

We chose Pippa to make our cake for our wedding reception after we married in Santorini, Greece. Pippa came up with some wonderful ideas of how to make our cake and cupcakes resemble the white and blue buildings from Santorini and she also gave us advice on cake flavours. The cake was so much more than we could have ever imagined and we got so many comments from our guests about how beautiful it looked and also how good it tasted. The cake was indeed delicious and we were so glad we had some left to take home and enjoy. Would definitely recommend Pippa to anyone and hope to use her again for other celebration cakes.

We picked Pippa to make out wedding cake for July 2022 and I wanted a specific design with a clear Perspex tier. The whole design process was so exciting and involved and the results were outstanding. 

The reason we picked Pippa was due to her unique design of sugar flowers and sleek look of her cakes, they have such a wow factor to look at and the tasting boxes really confirmed our choice as they taste as good as the look! We also ordered cake pops for our flower girls and some pregnant guests to replace alcohol favours and they were the nicest touch.

Huge thank you to you Philippa, our cake was amazing! We went for raspberry and white chocolate, red velvet and sticky toffee with a butterscotch icing. Everyone admired our cake and told us how amazing it tasted too, thankfully I got some on the day.   I would highly recommend Philippa to be your cake designer as she listened to what we wanted and created our perfect cake. There was no stress about the cake and she kept in touch even on the day to let me know when she would be delivering it. Thank you again for us all.

We booked our cake with you two years prior to the wedding but I can’t thank you enough,, from our first contact with you, you were able to answer all of our query’s and nothing was too much to ask. After two years our idea of what we wanted for a cake design had changed quite a lot but your reassured us that it was no problem. Thank you for keeping in contact with us right up to the day of the wedding and reassuring us everything was on track in the lead up to our big day.

It was amazing seeing our design come together on paper, and in real life it was better that I could have even imagined. The attention to detail was absolutely spot on, it was perfect! Our guests all complemented the flavours and tastes of the cake, even after the wedding we were being asked by guests for more.

Thank you so much for helping us on our special day and we cannot recommend you enough.

Samantha and David

Highly recommend Philippa Rose Cake Design if you are looking for someone to bake an incredible wedding cake!  Straight from the beginning she was understanding, professional and friendly. She listened to what we wanted and created a beautiful cake. We had vanilla and red velvet flavours and it tasted incredible.  All of our guests strongly agreed! I couldn’t recommend her enough, she truly is brilliant in every aspect of what she does. Love Mr and Mrs Scott.

We chose Pippa to make our wedding cake after seeing her beautiful work on her website and social media. After seeing many different designs that we loved, we finally came to a design that we thought was perfect for our spring wedding. Our cake was a 3 tier with 3 different flavours, with two pink sugar Gerberas to match my bouquet, daffodil and rose moulds, cherry blossom and grass which was perfectly drawn on and so much attention to detail was given.

Pippa includes delivery and set up of the cake, which was excellent as we were able to get ready without a worry! Even my photographer came over to me whilst I was having my make up done saying how great the cake looked. 

Communication was excellent during the planning of our wedding, any question I had no matter how small seemed to be no trouble for Pippa, which really helped as planning a wedding can be stressful.

 

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding cake, and we're getting many compliments from our guests. It really exceeded our expectations, as this was such a detailed design. We cannot thank Pippa enough for creating such a beautiful cake for our wedding day.

A huge thank you to Pippa for our wedding cake! From start to finish Pippa was so helpful and accommodating, we couldn't have asked for anything better! Our cake was absolutely stunning, we couldn't believe just how lovely all the flowers were and how perfectly it was made. It was also super tasty, so delicious in fact that our friends and family have been asking for more days after the wedding because they loved it so much! We would 100% recommend to anyone looking to book their cake here you won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much.

I just wanted to give you a wee message to say just how amazing you are! Our cake was spectacular and admired by everyone. You are a true artist and when we set you the challenge of the sunflowers not only did you rise to the challenge you smashed it. Our guests couldn’t believe they were sugar. Not only did the cake look amazing it tasted phenomenal! The carrot cake is to die for! The only downside was that our guests loved it so much there wasn’t much left for us to have for breakfast the next day.

Again we can’t thank you enough.

Pippa designed our amazing cake for our wedding in April. We couldn’t wait to see the cake and was the part we were most excited about. Our cake was amazing and we cannot thank Pippa enough, it was exactly what we wanted and tasted amazing. The flowers made by Pippa on the cake looked exactly like the flowers in my bouquet.

Pippa was the first supplier that we confirmed for our wedding, we knew that we wanted Pippa to be our cake designer as soon as we saw her photos. We got so many compliments on our cake during the day and after when friends and family saw our photos.

Pippa sent us initial ideas and drawings via email and closer to the time we went to her home cake design studio to refine our design and to discuss flavours. It was great to meet Pippa in person and see our design drawings in person. We also loved our cake sample box, it was such a nice experience deciding on flavours, this was a difficult task as they were all so good. Overall our experience was at lovely and seeing our cake on the day was amazing!

We would say to anyone looking to book Pippa as their cake designer to go for it! The cake and overall experience was amazing.

Thank you so much Pippa!

I am a hobby baker so I was extra picky when it came ot choosing someone to make our wedding cake. It’s clear from Pippa’s website and social media that she takes great care with attention to detail and her sugar flowers and foliage are incredible! This is what sold me and after exchanging emails I knew Pippa was the baker for us. To anyone thinking of booking Pippa, go for it! Reach out and have a chat with her as she is full of useful information and ideas. Although I was fairly sure I knew what design I wanted she had such good ideas and together we created the perfect cake. Pippa was so friendly and helpful right from the start, but I have to say my favourite part was the cake, it was delicious and there was hardly any left! We had so many compliments on how it looked and tasted.  We also loved the taster boxes which helped us pick our flavours. Thank you so much!
