    bought as a gift for a good friend,I have no doubt it will be well received and well made.Will absolutely use again.

  4. Tim Read

    I was told the cake was very tasty, and the tea cup was beautiful.
    Pity the tea that was delivered was out of date.

  5. Rachel Lohrey

    I ordered this cake as a birthday treat for my sister, I liked the idea that she would get a lovely vintage cup and saucer to keep. The cake was delivered on time, my sister was very pleased with it, and said the cake was delicious. However I was a bit disappointed to see the cup and saucer were plain white, not like the image on the website at all. I did receive a prompt response when I emailed the cake nest about this.

  6. Emily Hilliker

    Our friend loved it, it was a sympathy gift. She said it bought a smile to her face. Cake was yummy also.

  7. connie moreno

    The recipient of this cake loved the taste and texture of the cupcake. The frosting/icing was too thick and sweet and overpowered the cake. On the whole , she rated the cupcake a 7/10.

    Having bought this for my daughter I then bought another for my Goddaughter for her 16th Birthday. I have not spoke to my Goddaughter but I’m sure she will have been thrilled with such a unique (and tasty) gift!

  12. Poppy

    The cake was sent as a gift, therefore I have only seen a photograph. However from that I was slightly disappointed that the cup itself was quite plain.

  16. Margaret Lee

    My friend thoroughly enjoyed the cake, but I was disappointed that it was a day later than her birthday.

  17. Carolyn Rowe

    Perfect gift for someone who is difficult to buy for. A change from flowers!

  18. Sarah Hall

    This is the 4th or 5th time I have used Cake Nest and they have come through again with flying colours! The cup and saucer are adorable and I am informed by my daughter that the cake was delicious and filling, with a lovely lemon sauce at the bottom! Brilliant service as usual and sent in time for her birthday. Well done!!

  19. Anna Hughes

    I loved the idea of a real china cup with a cake in it and my Mum agreed. She said the cake wouldn’t last long! Such a nice idea for mothering Sunday.

  20. Katie Tomashevski

    My friend enjoyed the cup cake.

  21. Karen Swannack

    Unusual and something different.
