Yet again Gardners haven't let us down! We picked up our "Beach Themed" Wedding Cake on Friday and it was everything that we wanted. It was so good that it made me a bit emotional when I saw it!! So thank you so much and you guys are the only place we will use now, even though we come 60 miles, it is well worth the journey! I can't recommend you enough

I ordered a cake last minute for my Mum's 50th birthday. The staff were so accommodating and helpful. I gave a design idea over the phone but was blown away when I saw how they had created it, and the amount of intricate attention to details was unbelievable. I am truly grateful to the bakery for accommodating me at short notice and making my mum's birthday that bit special. It didn't just look good but tasted amazing, second helpings all round. Thank you, I would use you again and recommend you to anyone who asks.

We ordered a mini two-tier 'Dior' cake with supplementary cupcakes from Gardners Cakery for our wedding in March 2019. The cakes were delicious and Amber was really great at suggesting what might suit our needs best, whilst incorporating our ideas too - we added a wooden cake topper and tiny paper flags, which were all sorted and the whole thing delivered the evening before. The cake looked as beautiful as we had hoped - thank you Gardners Cakery!

We booked Gardners Bakery for our wedding cake and cookie favours and we weren’t disappointed! Helen got our requirements spot on- the cake was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! She even created two sugar paste guinea pigs in honour of our beloved pets and the cookie favours went down very well with our guests. Thank you so much Gardners!

I just want to say I have had a number of different cakes on various occasions and all of them have been absolutely superb. The recent one was for my granddaughter and she was over the moon with it. Thank you to Amber who is always so polite and helpful and I for one will continue to use this cake shop and do highly recommend them.

Thank you so much for the beautiful and tasty 60th Birthday cake done in the Saints Replica shirt for my husband the weekend of the Bank Holiday. We have ordered our special cakes from Gardners every time because our Wedding Cake was made by your bakery 36 years ago and our daughter Claire and husband Alex also had their wedding cake made by you in December 2018! A true gem for Northampton -your Company excels every time! Thank you so much your cakes are the best

The Strawberry Hello Kitty cake that you made for a very special little girls birthday was even better than the picture! Everyone at the Party commented on it and asked where I had got it from. The sponge was so light and just cut beautifully. I am very happy with my first purchase from you and will be back for more.

Ordered a birthday cake for my daughters second birthday at short notice, really helpful and fast communication from Leila, and best of all the cake was stunning and really tasty ☺️ She loved it! Thank you so so much xx

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. This was the best cake I have ever seen- it knocked all the others into a cocked hat. I had a great white shark cake made for my husband's 40th birthday and sent a photo from the Internet. I was hoping for a decent copy and certainly expecting an improved version!!!I was blown away by the lengths they went to. They didn't do one set of teeth for the shark, they did multiple sets. They even added blood stains. It was so detailed- they could have got away with doing a lot less and I would have been delighted. I am over the moon about the detail and effort you went to. Thank you so much- you literally made the day xxx
