Fiona,

I guess this note is better late than never! I can’t thank you enough for making the most amazing wedding cake ever!!!!!!!!!! We still have people tell us it was the best cake they have ever eaten and how fun the design was. Scott’s groom’s cake pictures have made their way through all of our friends via facebook and I was able to keep the chefs hat and some of the flowers and they are now with my bouquet in the dining room. We have told everyone we know if they need a cake to call you, and we are both looking forward to our 1st anniversary so we can enjoy another peice. I hope all is good with you and the family and thank you for spending so much time with me and understanding our vision for the wedding.

Fiona,
Jamey & I wanted to let you know how absolutely amazed we were with the wedding cake!  You designed it just perfectly, as we had imagined!  We almost felt guilty cutting into it!We received a multitude of compliments on how great it tasted as well.  We finally did get to eat some once we got home, and we couldn’t agree more!

We’ve received plenty of requests for your contact information, so we’re gladly passing it on to all who ask!   We can’t emphasize enough to them how pleased we were with your professionalism and service, not to mention the cool accent!

Again, thank you so much for making our day so special!

Sincerely,
Lisa & Jamey Burton.

Fiona,

Oh goodness, the cake first of all was exactly what I had in my minds eye.  The blue was the perfect shade and the dogwood blooms were spectacular!!!!!!

Then to actually taste the cake was pure delight!  Everyone was stunned at how pretty the cake was and then when they tasted it they were over the top.  Rex loved it and he finished the little bit that was left over.  I will email you a few picture of us cutting the cake.

Thanks you for helping to make our day (so long awaited) so special!liz-and-rex1

The wedding cake was amazingly beautiful, and deliciously tasteful. Everyone continues to let me know how great the cake tasted and looked. Fortunately I was able to taste 3 of the 4 different flavors; it was delicous.
Thank you.

Fi,

We loved your cake!
It was too pretty to eat! It was the centerpiece at dinner. Thank you – you are much sweeter than your cakes!

Fiona,

Thank you so much for making my wedding cake! It looked perfect and tasted even better! (very moist!) I heard from several people about how delicious it was. Thanks for being a part of the equation in making my wedding day the most amazing day ever.
Fondly,

Dear Fi,

I just wanted to let you know that the cake for our wedding last Saturday was wonderful! I actually didn’t get to have any until after we got back from the honeymoon, but it was still good after being in the freezer for a week. The details, ribbon, and monogram were so beautiful! A lot of our guests said our cake was the “best they’d ever eaten”. Thank you so much again! We will definitely recommend you to others!

Christy

Hi Fi,

I have been meaning to thank you for some time for doing such a beautiful job with our wedding cake, but with the move to London I have been pretty preoccupied. I have just seen the cake on your web site. It was a gorgeous addition to our wedding and tasted wonderful. Thank you for doing such a great job!

Dear Fiona,
I just wanted to thank you for making the most spectacular cake for my mothers surprise party. It was the hit of the evening. I think people will be raving about it for some time to come.Thanks again,
Stefanie

It was fantastic working with Fiona on our beautiful wedding cake, gorgeous dessert buffet, and the surprise chocolate banana birthday cake! We were introduced to Fiona several months before our wedding, and we asked her if she could make us a vegan wedding cake, which is quite a challenge for most bakers (no animal products, dairy, or eggs). Although she hadn’t made vegan cakes before, she heartily took on the task and prepared samples and tastings for us. We loved looking through her portfolio and found the perfect ideas for our wedding cake. We had so much fun working with Fiona that we asked her to do an all-vegan dessert buffet for a big party we held the night before our wedding, and my lovely bride surprised me by asking Fiona to secretly create a chocolate banana birthday cake! Everything was wonderful. Our wedding celebration was perfect and delicious, and Fiona worked directly with our florist to seamlessly create the showcase wedding cake we imagined. Thanks for taking on the vegan challenge and delivering so spectacularly!!
Mark and Jules Epstein

Dear Fiona,
Thank you so much for the stunning and delectable cake, it was a masterpiece!
Much love,
Jill

I just wanted to tell you how much I absolutely loved the cake. It was gorgeous (and tasted great as well!!). I don’t think it could have been any more perfect. I really appreciate all of your help, suggestions, and expertise. I had a wonderful time working with you and will certainly recommend you to all of my “bride- to -be” friends. Thanks so much!!

Without a doubt, the best wedding cake Kim and I have ever had. When we bit into it, we were floored at the taste and the quality. Furthermore, the portions were much greater then we expected and when they were done cutting it, there was much more left over then we could have ever expected so now we’re cutting it into pieces for family and friends. I do wish I had a chance to meet you in person and thank you but I did not so email and telephone will have to do for now. If Kim or I can ever be a reference to you for other clients, please let us know, we’d be happy to. Thank you for making a fantastic day for us even better.
Joe and Kim O’Callaghan

Thank you for the wonderful wedding and groom’s cakes you made for Shannon’s wedding. We received so many compliments about how delicious they were. Most people had a slice of each cake. Naturally, the chocolate was the favorite! Thank you again for all your hard work in their preparation.
Sincerely,
Laura Duffy

Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful shower cake for Farra. We couldn’t find enough superlatives to describe how wonderful we found the chocolate and raspberry cake to be. We sincerely hope you have a successful business as you and your desserts deserve all the best.
Thanks again,
Pat Street

Fiona,
What a pleasure it was to finally meet you and work with you. You have such a great reputation in town and now I know why.
Thanks for making Jennifer and David’s wedding extra special and making me shine.
Keep in Touch,
Thanks again,
Erika (Butterfly Parties)

Thank you so much for the lovely cakes and pastries, they were such a hit – everyone wanted to know how to get in touch with you for their parties. It was so, so good. Thanks for everything – it was scrumptious and John loved his birthday cake.

Thank you so much for making Natalie’s wedding day so perfect. Your dessert buffet was everything we dreamed it would be and more. You listened to her visions and made them delicious edible realities. Every detail from presentation, to flavor choices were perfect. The wedding cake was truly the cake you created to reflect everything Natalie hoped it to be. You listened to her, so the whole atmosphere reflected “her” I can’t thank you enough for truly giving my daughter “her day”.
Sincerely,
Gary and Susie Burns

Hey Fiona!!!
Just wanted to tell you thank you SO much for everything you did for us for the wedding. The groom’s cake was a complete hit and everyone loved it. The cake at the reception was also AMAZING…I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more….I will refer you to everyone I know that plans a wedding in Pinehurst or any of the surrounding towns.
Thank you thank you thank you…..you made my wedding day absolutely perfect!
Kristin

Fiona,
Thank you so much. The cake was beautiful and delicious. We should have made the carrot cake the middle layer. We would reccommend you to anyone. We are going to take some to Jimmy’s daughter in Hawaii.
Diane & Jimmy Sexton

Dear Fiona,
Thank you for the wonderfully delicious and beautiful cake! It was perfect – and the guests devoured it. In case you didn’t take a picture of it before you delivered it , I have attached one.
Thank you again – we loved it!
Kristine

Hi Fiona
It was a beatiful cake and tastes great. Everbody at Ironwood was looking at it. The flowers were very nice on top. Could not have been any better. Thank you very much.
Jimmy

Fiona,
The cake was absolutely beautiful; it was everything I had hoped for and more. Everyone raved about it many said it was the best wedding cake they had ever had. Thank you so much for all of your help.

We had first discovered Fiona’s talents quite providentially. When stopping by her husband’s studio to pick up some photography, we admired her lovely portrait hanging on the wall. We then flipped through her brochure, and upon returning home, plugged into her website and were very impressed. We were excited, as some good friends were soon to be wed in a very private gathering and we were unsure what to give them. They hadn’t planned to have a cake, and we thought it would make the absolute perfect gift! Well, it did!! It was a total success and everyone enjoyed it. Being a couple who is very interested in food preparation, particularly baking and pastry, we were completely overwhelmed! Not only was the cake sumptuous in taste and presentation, it looked like a piece of art! Fiona is truly gifted, and we are blessed to have her available to us here in the Sandhills.
Sincerely,
Stephen and Barbara Boyd

After tasting Fiona’s sample cakes I knew she had to make my bride’s and groom’s cakes. Together, we dreamed up the perfect blend of chocolates, almonds, and fruits to create two cakes that made my little-girl-dreams a reality. Fiona was able to duplicate perfectly a delicate leaf pattern I found in a magazine for the bride’s cake. It made a very elegant center piece for the reception. Her passion for baking and attention to detail ensured me that this detail of my wedding would be flawless. Thanks again, Fi !
Sincerely,
Margaret Gilbert

This note is long overdue. Karen and I want to express our appreciation to you for the wonderful wedding cake. People are still talking about how delicious it was 3 months later.
Kindest regards,

Wedding Cake by Fiona of Sweet Fi’s Cakes- Golden butter cake with vanilla scented buttercream — The cake for Katie and Jeff’s celebration was wonderful. Our guests just raved about it and all three flavors were big hits. Katie and Jeff did not save the top layer for their first anniversary. YEAH!!!
Thanks again,
Susan Fink

The wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. But the best part about it was how it tasted, it was really really good, very moist, it even tasted great three days after the wedding. The greatest thing about it was how you came over to our house a couple of months before and let us try three different types of cake. We were able to sit at our own kitchen table and choose the flavor and also the decoration and design from your portfolio. That level of personal service meant a lot to us. Our cake was everything we could have ever wanted.
Thanks again,
Irene Russel

Everyone loved the cakes from what I hear, and had their favorites! We have saved the tops of both the bride and groom’s cake and plan to eat the Bride’s soon as I did not have the opportunity to eat a whole slice at the wedding. However, those that did said it was the best tasting cake they had ever eaten and some even wanted to know who made it (Both were in the food business.)! The leftover cake was taken home by several people, my sister Tracey being one of them. The bride’s cake looked beautiful. Can’t wait to see pictures of it again….my memory of the wedding is a slight blurrrrrr from everything that went on that day!
Thanks again,
Tara

John and I want to send our sincerest thanks to you for making us such a beautiful and delicious wedding cake.
Thanks again,
John, Suda and Kendall Ryan
