December 2013, Alan and Janet, 100 Wedding Cupcakes

"Thank you so much for sharing your skill, and expending your time, making such beautiful cupcakes for our wedding.

  The cakes were glorious and so light, and the decorations were stunning. Thank you. 

All of the cakes went, and we were not surprised at all.  The guests who stayed the night at the hotel were asking for more the next morning, too. 
 With such a fantastic "product" you deserve to be a very successful business woman."

April 2011, Karin Ridgers, Director of VeggieVision TV. (http://www.veggievision.tv/Large cupcake order and birthday cake

"Thanks again for your hard work and super cakes Jen.To say that everyone was impressed is an understatement - and we didn't even shout that they were vegan!There was enough for all the adults and all the kids, then enough for all of my family - We are kind of caked out now!!!  Amazingly they all still taste fab even these few days later. The cakes were all so moist and fluffy - just the best vegan cakes we have had - well the best cakes full stop!!!"

July 2013, Jo, Mixed cupcake order

"Hi Jen, they were absolutely delicious!! I really think they are the best cakes I have tasted :) 
My fave (although all could be) was Double Choc, Mint & Oreo!! Yum!!
Even my meat eater boyfriend thought the Oreo was one of the best cupcakes he ever had!! :) 
I wished you live nearer but then, that would prob be dangerous for me as I would end up looking like a cupcake!!
They were lovely!!"

June 2013, Charlotte, 6" Chocolate ganache cake with handmade truffles

"The chocolate truffle cake was hands down simply amazing thank you. I decided to use my prize winning cake to celebrate my dad's 65th birthday and I have attached some pictures. It looked and smelt mouthwatering. The sponge was moist, light and rich. The truffles now have a little place in my heart (since becoming lactose intolerant i never thought I would taste anything like that again). The whole family and most importantly Dad loved it! So thank you so very much. Kindest regards Charlotte and the Knappett/Henley/Gethen family"

May 2013, Emma, 10" Frosted  Lemon Cake

 "I've given 11 different people (12 including myself at last count) a slice of that cake and all of them have stated it's the BEST cake they've ever eaten! Then when I explain who made it and how it's vegan they flip and are mega shocked which apparently makes it taste all the better?! Even the waitress' at the restaurant where my cake was delivered to me (singing and all worst luck) said how amazing it smelt and looked - we did offer them a teeny slither too to which they enjoyed no end! I've also recommended you to everyone that'll listen! Deffo coming back! Was a lovely surprise! Thank you!"

February  2012, Felicity,  Butter cream celebration cake


"the cake is very yummy and was totally beautiful before the family dug in lol. Totally worth every penny, Jen done an amazing job and everyone said how beautiful the cake was and some of my family (non of them are veggie let alone vegan) said it was better than a cake with dairy etc. Everyone had a piece and ate it all, none was wasted and there is only 1/4 of the cake left. Thank you Jen it was super lovely".

Part of a lovely email from, Kim


"Just wanted to let you know i brought 8 of your cakes on Saturday from CO1 Cafe in Colchester. They are so delicious, there is only one left now...I decided to make a special journey to Colchester, which is only up the road to me to buy some of your cakes. I now know who to contact if i want a special cake made or where to go for your tasty cupcakes and treats...
I really think people need to be educated when it comes to vegan food and how good it is. You are one of the people who are helping to show that you really don't need to cook with dairy or eggs to produce good tasty cakes and treats."

Chuy
Peanut butter cake


"I ordered a 6" birthday cake for my wife and some cupcakes. I asked for a peanut butter and chocolate kind, and she had not made these before. She was kind enough to accommodate the new flavor request, and she did so very well. The cakes were delicious, and looked very nice too! I highly recommend them :) Fantastic cakes!"

(Thanks for being my first customer Chuy!)

Feedback from customers at Cafe at number 21

Anna, January 2013

"Met a friend in Colchester today and stopped for coffee at Cafe at Number 21. Had a cappuccino made with soya and one of your fantastic cupcakes. My friend who is not vegan couldn't believe how yummy they were."

Amy, November 2012
"I scoffed a couple of your cupcakes today that I managed to buy just in time from Cafe 21 yesterday afternoon (after they had officially closed their doors!) phew!! The cupcakes were amazing!! Mum had the lemon one. I had a mocha one (and I don't even like coffee flavoured cakes normally) but the Cherry Bakewell was the best!! I will be making an order in the near future!!! THANK YOU!"
