From customers:

Francesca, 3 years ago

The Cakes were simply fantastic - after stepping in last minute everything was organised with such ease and we were so happy they were able to perform the song for our first dance. Many of our guests spoke to us on the night or in the days after to say how much they enjoyed Jordan & Chris’ performance - echoing our thoughts. Thank you for making our night and being such fun, talented performers! We couldn’t have asked for better.

Amanda, 3 years ago

The Cakes really made our day special, they tailored a song request to how we wanted it and our first dance was perfect! All my guests were commenting on how good they are and they even got my nan up dancing at the end. Would highly recommend!
