Here’s what our customers have to say…

Rosie & Takunda – Elegant Dessert Table

Yevnig created a wonderful dessert table for us which featured an elegant four tier cake as the centrepiece surrounded by a selection of smaller cakes, cupcakes and cake pops. Her attention to detail surpassed all our expectations – from the beautifully handmade flowers on the cakes which when placed next to the fresh flowers and petals on the display looked perfectly natural; to the dainty little ribbons tied around the cake stands and cake pops. She managed to accommodate all of our flavour requests for the cake (there were many) and all of them were DELICIOUS – soft and fluffy with all the evidence of her superior ingredients and talent. All through the planning process, she demonstrated excellent professionalism and was always available to communicate via different mediums which made it really easy and convenient for us to get in touch with her. She took away any worries and we always felt safe and confident that she would deliver what she promised. We look forward to enjoying more Unique Cakes by Yevnig for our future family celebrations.

Angela and Adam - The Angelina

Unique cakes by Yevnig is quite simply amazing. Yevnig's cake was the centrepiece of our magical wedding at Farnham Castle, Surrey on 30th July and was far more spectacular than I could have ever imagined. We started speaking to Yevnig 18 months before our wedding and it was such a special experience. Yevnig's cake room in Basingstoke is so beautiful, full of all her cakes, it really inspires you as to what is possible. Not only do the cakes look amazing, the taste is out of this world. My husband is still commenting on the cake and how he is sad that there isn't any more left! We ended up choosing a stunning 4 tier cake with tamari balls and an incredible 5 flavours. The cake was matched perfectly to our elegant fairy-tale theme of baby pink, cream and white. It was finished off with a wreath of white hydrangea which was totally stunning. I just want to say a huge thank you to Yevnig for being so inspiring, kind and friendly. If you choose Unique Cakes you will receive a totally bespoke service from an amazing cake maker who has an ability to make you feel so special, which I am sure is every bride's dream for her wedding day. Thank you Yevnig xxx

We would recommend YOU as well as your cakes because you made everything easy. You took on our dream cake and made it real. Nothing was too much trouble and you were happy to add those special details that made our cake unique indeed. You really are a very talented lady. XXX

Lisa & Nicholas – Elegancia Sheen

Yevnig made the cake for our wedding and it was absolutely outstanding. The cake itself looked absolutely beautiful and stole the show and on top of that it tasted divine. It definitely was the main talking point of the wedding and the guests said they had never tasted a wedding cake quite like it, absolutely delicious! Yevnig was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, very professional and polite and she truly put her heart and soul into making this cake for us and she helped make our day so special. We highly recommend her to anyone.

Sophie & Chris - Beautiful Sophie

To Yevnig, Thank you so much for making our dream wedding cake! From our first meeting I knew we were going to have fun and through all the process of designing our cake, you were amazing – seeing the cake go from a sketch on paper to a reality in the ballroom was literally a dream come true, not only did it look fantastic but it tasted out of this world – everyone commented on our cake and we have you to thank! We have highly recommended you to friends and family! Love Sophie & Chris Gosden.

Cara – Frill Flattery

Yevnig from Unique Cakes designed our amazing wedding cake! The whole process was enjoyable from beginning to end, from the tasting session to cutting our beautiful cake on our wedding day. The cake was such a focal point and tasted amazing, which is very important to my husband and I who are such foodies!

Nicola – Vintage Chic Gold

Yevnig created the most beautiful wedding cake, cake pops and spheres for my wedding. It was a work of art! The cake was delicious and moist and the decoration stunning, it became centre stage at the wedding and looked exquisite with the olive trees, fairy lights and meadow flowers. Everyone at the wedding commented on the skill required to make a cake shine. Yevnig was terrific, so professional, her advice was invaluable, who would have guessed there was so much to consider with cake making and presentation?! I especially liked the cake tasting, if I could have chosen 20 different flavours I would have! Thank you Yevnig, you really helped to make the day perfect. x

Tami – The Tamar Cupcake Tower

* * * * * It’s a shame you can’t add more stars to this review! Yevnig made my wedding cakes and cupcakes. To say they were sublime would be a huge understatement. The care and love that was put into every part of the display was awe inspiring. The tastes and decorations were breath taking. I can’t recommend Unique Cakes by Yevnig enough. Professional, above all expectations (and they were high already) and Yevnig’s imagination is second to none. Thank you so much, we and all of our guests were speechless and delighted by your marvellous creations. You were a very such part to our magical day and we will forever be grateful xx

The cupcakes for our wedding were out of this world delicious! Yevnig was so flexible and easy to work with and came with a lot of creative ideas! She was 100% invested in ensuring our wedding day was a huge success, adding design touches to ensure the cupcakes blended in perfectly with our rustic themed wedding. One taste of those cupcakes and you will be sold on selecting Yevnig just like we were! A true delight!

Vicky & Ben – Peachy Roses

I would 100% recommend Yevnig to anyone looking for a beautiful cake. Not only was Yevnig very reliable but she produced a lovely cake for our wedding in August. Yevnig was also very good with communicating with us throughout she instantly put us at ease. All of our wedding guests commented on how great our wedding cake looked and tasted. I have to agree it was the best cake I have ever tasted! Thank you Yevnig for making sure we had a perfect wedding cake. Many Thanks.

Kayleigh & John - Boho Naked Cake with Summer Flowers

Yevnig created our amazing rustic naked wedding cake. We served the cake as dessert so wanted something that tasted really good, and because it was un-iced it had to be moist. All of the guests said it was the best cake they'd ever had! It really was amazing! Not only did it taste amazing, but Yevnig decorated it beautifully. We wanted lots of fresh flowers to tie in with our rustic barn theme. The day before the wedding we left a bucket with lots of flowers, Yevnig went to the barn on the morning of the wedding and individually wrapped the flower stalks and created the most stunning display. Yevnig was professional but super friendly and bubbly from start to finish. We also had a cake tasting with her, which really was a cake-lovers heaven and definitely worth doing even if you know what flavours you want! She really did go the extra mile and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Very happy customer!

Natalie & Alan – Timelessly Elegant

I can’t rate Unique Cakes, by Yevnig highly enough. Yevnig designed and created the perfect cakes for our wedding. She gave the time and effort to listen to exactly what we wanted, to match the cake to our colour scheme and to include many different types of cake in the different tiers, to ensure there really was something for everyone. I highly recommend Yevnig’s cakes to anyone who is looking for the perfect cake for their special occasion!

Charlotte & Lee – Rivervale Barn

Yevnig was the one and only cake maker we saw and spoke to about our wedding cake... Which says it all really. We fell in love with her personality right from the outset and that was before any cakes were even tested! Her love and passion for baking comes through in every one of her bakes. They are delicious! Our tasting session was AMAZING and not just because we got to test out cake (and we love cake!) but because we got on so well with Yevnig that we ended up staying for about 3 hours just chatting away getting to know her and her with us. Yevnig was great with contact all the way through the planning of our wedding, and we trusted her completely. The outcome of our wedding cake exceeded our expectations a million times over. It was absolutely beautiful and exactly what we dreamt of along with tasting delicious at the same time! We had a four tiered square cake with lavender and pink Hawaiian style flowers cascading diagonally down. Every one of our guests commented on how lovely it was. We had the best day ever and Yevnig contributed tremendously towards that. She is highly recommended in our books, in both cake making and as a friend (waiting to give me a hug and kiss before I said "I do") ❤

Zoe Davies - Four Seasons Hampshire

From our first contact with Yevnig it has been a real pleasure: professional, helpful and super talented! The tasting in her beautiful little room was so special & personal. She listened to all our wishes and the cake tasting itself was unbelievably delicious! Obviously, we decided to choose Yevnig to design & make our wedding cake and we are so excited to see it on our wedding day in December.

Christine Piggott for Fiona & Rhys - Royal Berkshire Hotel, Ascot

I cannot recommend Yevnig highly enough. From the moment we first met her through to my daughter's wedding day last week she has been amazing. We live in the US so much of the consultation and design with my daughter took place via Skype and e-mail. Even without meeting face to face for several months Yevnig tuned into what my daughter wanted very quickly. The cake tasting in her beautiful room was amazing! WE ended up going with 5 different flavours as we were so spoilt for choice! She made two cakes for us, a groom’s cake as well as the traditional wedding cake. Everyone was so impressed with both the designs and taste of the cakes. She also made macarons and cookies for our favours and they were just as pretty and delicious as the cakes. Yevnig has welcomed us warmly into her home on several occasions now and feels like an old friend. We will definitely be keeping in touch.
