Review quote

"Juliet knocked up the most mind-blowing birthday cake for my 30th! It wasn't just a cake but a piece of art! Too gold to eat? Sure... But we still tucked in and my God it tasted as good as it looked!" -- Fearne Cotton "Some cakes boast that they are "exceedingly good". Well, Juliet's cakes look good, taste even better and are among the best I've ever enjoyed eating." -- Sir Ian McKellan "Cake? That's like saying Concorde was a plane! Juliet does delicious art. The most beautiful, yummiest cakes I've ever seen or tasted." -- Bob Geldof "You won't find more deliciously awesome cakes on planet Earth! In fact they are so tasty that they might not even be from Earth but from a far off planet called Caketopia, and made by aliens with superior baking skills. Not only do they look unbelievable but they taste so, so incredible that my mouth is watering just writing these words. And to top all that off, they are made with care and passion by such a lovely, lovely person." -- Tom - McFLY Testimonial on www.fancynancy.infoshow more
