Customer Testimonials - Florentines Cakes

Here are a few Customer Testimonials from previous clients:

I remember walking into the Wedding venue and as I entered the reception hall to get ready to meet my Groom, the first thing I noticed was the beautifully coloured tiered wedding cake standing on the opposite side of the room. You could not miss it – my first words to the bridal party was “it’s exactly the way I saw it in my mind’s eye – it’s absolutely perfect!”

And perfect it was, not only in presentation but it tasted great too; the exact texture that we had described to Christa! It was more than just a wedding cake – it was a dream come true!

Thanks Christa and the rest of the Florentines team for the part you played in making our day so perfect and special!
Keenan & Ashley
This note is to say a big THANK YOU for the wedding cake you made me for my wedding day. It was exactly like i wanted it and the taste was divine. I am not a person for carrot cake because everyone does not make it as delicious as yours. But your cake topped every carrot cake i ever tasted - seriously. It was really delicious and the service you gave me was excellent - no hassles or complications at all. Thank you, Thank you, thank you again, so much for your delicious cake. I cant thank you enough.

I will definitely be visiting you very again soon and recommending your baking to others.

Thank you for your excellent service, kindness and delicious cake.
Kind regards
Our wedding cake that was presented by Florentines was one of the main features on our day. Served us with many compliments and the cake itself was beautifully displayed and absolutely delicious!! Their services was great with good correspondence. I would definitely recommend them. Thank you very much Florentines!!
Kind Regards
Nicolene and Pieter
Christa and her team could not have produced a more perfect cake - from presentation to flavour her work was exceptional.
Thank you Christa for creating our dream wedding cake!
Kind Regards
Laura and Mark
Nothing was too difficult for this cake guru. We showed her a picture of an elegant but admittedly tricky cake, which we had seen in a magazine and not only did she produce an exact replica, it tasted absolutely sublime!
Many Thanks
Ally and Rob
Florentines (Christa) did our wedding cake and we were amazed and grateful for her professional and friendly way she dealt with us. She knew exactly what we wanted and could give it to us.

Also she had more variety of cakes we could choose from, the one more divine than the other, making it difficult to choose. The cake was gorgeous and the best cake I have ever had, it was delicious. All our guests raved about the cake and could not stop eating. We will recommend her to anyone and will let her make another cake for us.

Thank you Christa and Florentines for making our dream wedding cake, the perfect ending to our perfect wedding
Have a great day and all of the best.
Regards Elizabeth
My husband and I tied the knot. One of the most exciting aspects of planning the wedding was, without a doubt, the wedding cake. After an extensive internet search and a few cake tasting sessions, we decided on Florentine's bakery.

The cake was an exquisite chocolate fudge creation, topped with chocolate ganache, radiant red roses and berries. Despite being upset about being 2 hours late for the wedding (both cars broke down en route, what's the chances, hey?...), I was so excited and happy when I saw the cake as I entered our wedding venue. Everyone who tasted the cake, said that it was the best cake they ever had. In fact, during the first week of our honeymoon, we couldn't wait to get out of bed... to eat more wedding cake.
We vowed to order a cake at Florentines every year. Our first wedding anniversary is coming up in 2 months time, and even though we haven't planned any celebrations yet, the cake has been ordered already!

Your wedding cake is an element of your wedding that will stay in peoples minds long after the event has taken place. Christa's cake will be remembered not only for the way it looked but also for the taste – heavenly! The best cake we’ve ever had without a doubt! We've received the best compliments on your chocolate mousse cake. The taste and look was stunning. Everything we were looking for - Elegant, and yet melt-in-your-mouth. Thank you!
Once again – thank you!
Yolandi & Nonda
Hi Christa,
I want to extend a BIG thank you to you - your wedding cake was FANTASTIC! People couldn't stop eating or talking about our wedding cake. It is two weeks later, and people are still smacking their lips!! Not to mention the icing - it was identical to my invitations, a unbelievable job well done!

Thank you so much for your part in making our special day UNFORGETABLE!
Etienne & Bernadine Terblanche (Le Roux)

Thanks Christa.
The cake was very tasty and all our guests loved it.

Thank you very much!
You had our guests wanting to trade their teeth for more! Your cake kicked @ss! That was all our guest could talk about because as we send out thank you notes everyone was like "is there any cake left?". So, I think that's definitely worth sharing!

Enjoy :-)

All the best with the season ahead!


Good Morning Christa

I would like to take this time to thank you for the most beautiful cake you had made for myself and Jamie. It was stunning and so delicious. Myself and Jamie only had one bite and the rest of family went crazy.

Everyone loved the cake. The handcuff detail was so cute. We will definitely be recommending Florentines to family and friends.

Lots of hugs and smiles
Thank you once again

Hi Christa

Sunday and we are just basking in the relief that everything went so well for Ashley’s wedding. A very big thank you to you. The cakes were everything I could imagine and much more.
They made tables look so beautiful and you displayed them so well, each one was a work of art.

I can’t praise you or thank you enough, Christa. Your artistry made everything look so beautiful and were much admired. I am so glad we went with the individual cake idea. Oh and they tasted delicious too!

Thank you,
Sandy and Ashley

Hi Christa,

I was looking through our wedding photos again and thought you might like a photo of the cake for your album. I’m not sure if you took a photo on the day :)

Thanks again and just to let you know my guests are still complimenting me on our wedding cake – it was the best once we’ve ever tasted.

Thanks again for all your hard work.
Kind regards

Good Morning Christa

Hope you are well?
I just want to say thank you very much for the beautiful cake. It was delicious and everyone loved the topper especially me.

I wish it could happen again. Thank you for help. Have a fantastic day. Thank you
Dawn Easton

Hi Christa,

Just got back from honeymoon, but I had to drop you a line to let you know what a FABULOUS job you did of the wedding cake. It was exactly as I had imagined. I really loved that you were as excited about it as I was ... your passion for your work clearly shone through on the day. As you said, go big or go home!

Many guests commented not only on how stunning the cake looked but also on the scrumptiousness. The chocolate mousse layers definitely stole the show!

I’m sure you have your own pics of the cake, but if I get any good ones from my photographer, I’ll be sure to pass them on.

Needless to say, I’ll be recommending your services in future.

Kind regards,
Lisa Bubear-Craemer

Dearest Christa

It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you ..

Thank you !!!!!!

Dear Christa

I hope you are well!

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for our absolutely delicious wedding cake!

The carrot cake was absolutely delicious and all the cupcakes were to die for! The presentation of all of them was just stunning, we were so impressed! I have attached a couple of photos!

Helen & Andrew Kirby

Hi Christa,

Thank you so much for everything! I will definitely be recommending your company to every and anyone!
All my guests raved more about the cake than the food lol!

Kind regards,
Chesray Heidmann

Hi Christa

Firstly, feed back on my cake. To be honest, I actually didn't really get to eat a piece. The design was amazing, It's easy to take for granted the geometry of the cake, my sister was absolutely amazed by your skill. She asked if you would rather just move to Durban so you could bake exclusively for our family. The flowers you made were stunning! - I love the fact that it looked exactly like the pictures.

As always when it comes to cakes, it's not just about the way it looks, but about the way it tastes. I didn't get to have a piece of my cake, but the fact that i didn't, meant it must have been divine! I did taste it when my friend fed me a piece- i really enjoyed the icing/filling. It was delicious! - I got several compliments about the cake and am passing them on. No one had a negative thing to say.

Kind regards

Just wanted to say that we thought the wedding cake was PERFECT! It was exactly what we wanted and hoped for, and it tasted delicious. The guests were so impressed too!

Thank you so much!

Dear Christa,

Thank you so much for the delicious wedding cake! It was all gobbled up! And many people commented on how moist it was.

Thank you!
Tessa and Roger

Hello Christa,

I know it has be 3 weeks since the wedding. We just wanted to send you an email thanking you for a fantastic cake, it was wonderful.

All the flavours were perfect, it looked fabulous.

Having the individual cakes was perfect as there were no cakes left at the end of the night as the guests had taken them all as we intended as our favours. If we are back in SA to celebrate any future additions we will certainly be in contact for the possibility of a cake to celebrate this :)

Hope all is going well, keep up the amazing work.
Thank You
Liam and Sam (all the way from not so sunny UK hehe).

Dearest Christa

Compliments of the season to you!

Once again, thank you so much for our absolutely beautiful wedding cake! It was certainly the key feature of our wedding day!

Warmest regards
Cyrillia & John xx

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the beautiful wedding cake you made for us, we loved it! It was just as I imagined and tasted even better than I could have imagined.
