Karina was such a pleasure to deal with and her professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. Karina designed and created our wedding cake which looked and tasted amazing. We were both so happy with the finished design.

Karina from CakeRise was a delight to work with. As soon as we tasted the wedding cake samples, we knew we had to book her to make our wedding cake. Karina was very accommodating to meet with us over the weekends and helpful when trying to decide on what flavours and design we wanted for our wedding cake. All the guests raved about the delicious cake and I was delighted to have some left overs to take home and enjoy once the big day was all over!

The cake Karina baked for our wedding was beautiful. We loved it and it was exactly what we’d asked for.She was very professional yet friendly and approachable throughout. I can not recommend Cake Rise highly enough
Review by
Karina at Cake Rise was extremely professional throughout the cake making process, responding to our different requirements for the cake and offering some really useful advice about how to make the cake look great on the wedding day, e.g. stopping it from drying out. We felt the price we paid was certainly fair and definitely well worth it. Would highly recommend!

Cake Rise allowed me to pay in instalments up to the day of the wedding which really helped me when paying out for a wedding. When I first saw the cake I was blown away, it was perfect and everything I asked for, better than I imagined. Living in England I relied on emails to talk to through cake ideas, I always had prompt responses. I had never tasted one of their cakes but i was not disappointed. 5* from me
Response from Cake Rise
Thank you so much Kaylee, so glad you like it.

Karina’s work was beautiful and delicious. I wanted a custom made cake and she was creative, flexible and fun to work with while planning my wedding. I highly recommend using Cake Rise for any special occasion involving frosting!

Planning an overseas, destination wedding was a great challenge but with Karina of Cake Rise, our wedding cake was complete perfection. Working with Karina was smooth, fun and effortless. She was open to my bride’s new ideas, she went above and beyond to be accommodating to her every thought or need. Our cake also was one of our dessert highlights on our Irish trip. I would highly recommend Cake Rise for anyone who wants a flawless, fun and delicious experience for their wedding cake!

Karina was absolutely fantastic! From the moment we met her we knew she was so passionate about making cakes and accommodated everything we asked, from adjusting flavours to match our taste to the decoration. We also had a tight timeline and she was still able to do everything we asked and more. Her kitchen/showroom is beautiful, and immaculately clean, you can tell she is such a perfectionist from the moment you walk in. We had three flavours of cake, the carrot cake, the chocolate biscuit and the vanilla sponge, they were all amazing and the carrot cake was the best I ever tasted, everyone was commenting on how delicious the cake was. I would highly recommend Cake Rise for your wedding cake, Karina will put you at ease and make sure everything is perfect.
Response from Cake Rise
Thank you so much Christina for your lovely comments. You both look amazing in your open top car. I hope you had a fantastic day. Many thanks again.

We cannot thank Karina at Cake Rise enough for our beautiful wedding cake. We had a vision of how we wanted it to look and Karina got it spot on, it was even better than we could have imagined and tasted amazing. We would have no problem recommending Karina, she was brilliant to work with and so talented. The time and detail that went into creating the sugar flowers and decoration, she must have spent ages on them, we cannot thank her enough.
Response from Cake Rise
Thank you Ashley. Your cake choice was stunning & I loved making it, it look really beautiful in you colour scheme. Many thanks for choosing Cake Rise.

We decided very last minute to order a cake and had some specific requests i.e. including a logo I had designed for our wedding. Was all fine and even though our wedding was troubled with bad weather (Storm Emma, loads of snow!) and we were late on getting to Ireland from England - everything was still perfect and the cake was in the venue ready to be cut! Great service and super helpful and understanding.
Response from Cake Rise
Thank you Heath & Aine. You could never tell from your pictures you had such an epic journey to get to your Wedding. Thankfully you did, hope you both had a great day.

The cake Karina made us for our wedding last June was above and beyond my expectations! We were having a small rustic wedding and only needed a one tier cake, I showed Karina a few pictures but was happy to let her do whatever she thought would look good! The cake was both beautiful and delicious! Karina even used buttercream to decorate it as we don't like icing, and it still looked amazing! I didn't meet Karina myself as we were living abroad, but I talked to her through Facebook and my mum met with her, and she was really lovely and helpful! Overall, it was a really good experience and the outcome was perfect! I would highly recommend Cake Rise!

Karina made our wedding cake and it was fabulous! Not only did it look amazing but it tasted devine! All our guests raved about how scrummy it was. A massive bonus is that Karina was lovely to work with - a definite bonus when everything else is so stressful when planning a wedding, I would have no hesitation recommending her to my family and friends.
Response from Cake Rise
Ah! Suzanne you were lovely, was delighted to make your cake for you. Many thanks.

Karina is a true Talent. There are many cake suppliers out there to choose from but very few who posses the same attention to detail and creative spirit that Karina does. I have got countless cakes off Cake Rise over the years and each time I go to collect I am astounded at the workmanship and creativity. Not only do Cake Rises cakes look flawless but they taste amazing (I am always fighting to get a piece ;-)) My Wedding cake in November 5th 2016 was no exception. I gave Karina the brief and she took it from there. It was a completely stress free process and needless to say it was yet another cake that looked amazing and tasted just as good. I would highly recommend Cake Rise - You wont be disapointed :-)
Response from Cake Rise
Thank you so much Emma for your support over the years, loved making all your cakes especially your Wedding cake. Most of all thanks so much for your continued support of my cake business.

From the moment we got in touch with Karina from Cake Rise I knew we had made the right decision, the service we got was exceptional & Karina put our minds at ease about our wedding cake straightaway. To say the cake was delicious is an understatement & really doesn't justify it, it was divine. Karina is such a talented lady & it is very evident in the cakes she produces. It was a pleasure to deal with Karina & we never once worried about anything to do with our wedding cake. We really can't recommend Cake Rise highly enough, the cake & service from Cake Rise went way beyond our expectations. Counting down the days to our next event so we can order another divine masterpiece!
Response from Cake Rise
Ah! thank you Karen & Mark for your lovely feedback. Absolutely loved making your cake.

We first went to karina for her to make our daughters birthday cake. My daughter who was turning five at the time had plenty of requests which included that her Disney frozen themed cake be a castle with a staircase, and she wanted it to have plenty of snowflakes. What karina came back with was not just a cake, but it was a work of art!! It exceeded everyone's expectations and it tasted divine.It was from then that we knew that we would not go to anyone else for our wedding Cake. Karina amazed us and all our guests with the cake she created for our wedding, her attention to detail is astonishing and when I look at the pictures I still can't believe am looking at my wedding cake. I truly believe karina is one of the most talented, if not the most talented cake decoraters Ireland has to offer. If you want someone you can trust to deliver a cake beyond your expectations for your big day, look no further than Cake rise. Your cake will not just look amazing but it will taste as good as it looks and karina is always pleasant and easy to deal with. Thank you karina for your amazing work. I cannot wait until the next occasion :)

Cake Rise was brilliant. I cant say enough about her. Her cakes are absolutely delicious and she goes to an extreme effort in decorating her cake. She was so helpful with everything we wanted for our cake from the day we booked our cake until the day of our wedding. I would definitely recommend cake rise for any occasion

One of the best decisions I made when planning our wedding was having Cake Rise make our wedding cake. My sister had previously had Cake Rise make her wedding cake and when I saw her cake I was blown away by it that I knew she had to make ours. The attention to detail on our cake was amazing and so many people commented on it on the day and took plenty of photos. With all the planning of the wedding, things can be a little stressful but Karina was a dream to deal with and made everything so seamless!! I love her cakes so much that she will be making a cake for us for our baby boy's Christening Day. I would highly recommend Cake Rise to everyone for all occasions! Thank you again Karina for making our day that extra bit special.
Response from Cake Rise
Ah! thank you Edel for your lovely comments and so looking forward to making your little boys Christening cake for you. Thanks again. Karina.

Response from Cake Rise
Hi Breda, thank you so much. It was lovely to hear from you after all these years. Loved doing your cake, it was beautiful and the little bear cake topper given to you as a gift looked just perfect along side your cake. I don't ever get to see Brides on their Wedding day which is a shame, but I did have a lump in my throat when your cake was all set up in Cromleach Lodge, I just loved the end result. Thanks again. Karina.
