Ruairi’s Kitchens we’re amazing to deal with, so accommodating when it came to the size and flavours of the tiers! Each of which was nicer that the next. Amazing is the only word you could use to describe it and the decoration was beautiful. Ruairi went above and beyond with our cake!!

Ruairi's Kitchen did the cake for my brothers wedding, as they are in the states I had the responsibility of arranging it. Given the December 28th date, it was hard enough to arrange one, but Ruairi's Kitchen sorted it out. Very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The cake was chocolate biscuit and it was absolutely out of this world! The best I have ever tasted, and I have tasted a lot! It was melt in your mouth, just the right combo of chocolate to biscuit ratio, and so fresh. All the guests commented on how lovely the cake was too.I caught the bouquet so hopefully I’ll be planning my own wedding soon- Ruairi's Kitchen will be my first and only cake call. Couldn’t recommend Ruairi's Kitchen enough. Joanne

Fantastic to deal with. Cake was absolutely delicous...chocolate biscuit cake was to die for. Highly recommend to anyone who wants any kind of cake. Ruairi is very flexible and will cater to any design at all. Immediate responses too and handles everything on tbe wedding day with the hotel which eased the stress for us.

Ruairi went above and beyond for our wedding cake. It was all so easy as we sent on pictures via WhatsApp and he created exactly what I had sent him, as well as delivering it to the hotel and setting it all up! It looked fantastic and tasted even better!! Feedback from our guests was top class and our wedding pictures with the cake are one of my favourites! I would recommend Ruairi without hesitation and will be getting him again for any other life events that come our way ??

When I chose my wedding date, the first thing I choose was the cake with Ruairi. He has already made some cakes for me and has always exceeded expectations. Ruairi helped me in the creation and decision of what would be best for the day. Near the date I asked for some changes from what I had imagined when I booked and he was super. The cake, besides being perfect on the outside, had a magnificent flavor. I also emphasize the decoration of the cake, because made it even more beautiful. I higher recommend Ruairi for any occasion and look forward to some date to order the next cake.

From the very beginning, Ruairi was absolutely amazing to deal with. Neither of us were huge cake lovers but we definitely wanted cake for our wedding. He guided us through all different styles of cake and through the muddle of what I wanted in my head. What was produced was a stunningly beautiful cake that was scrumptiously delicious. Ruairi dropped the cake down to the venue and set it up for us; plus his attention to detail was unreal. Ruairi even matched the flowers on the cake to the colour of the bridal bouquet. Ruairi was so friendly and so professional throughout and made planning our wedding so easy! I knew people would be fed lots of gorgeous cake! Book with Ruairi's kitchens and you will not be disappointed! Thanks Ruairi. Mmmmmmmm! Triona and Noely
Response from Ruairi's Kitchen
Hi Triona And Noely thank you so much for your kind words. I loved doing your cake and loved the venue and set up. Was amazing for me to help you design your cake while keeping that all important Black Forest gateau flavour as the main focus. Thank you again for choosing me to be your wedding baker and it was a pleasure :)

I asked Ruairi if he could supply us with gluten free cupcakes for our wedding. Ruairi was very knowledgeable about allergies in the kitchen and was upfront and honest about his kitchen not being a 100% gluten free environment. Saying that I was confident to go ahead with my order as Ruairi explained he would not bake anything with gluten in the kitchen until after he had my order baked and ready. I really appreciated it and everyone loved the cupcakes you wouldn't even have known they were gluten free.

Hi Marie thank you so much for your review and I was beyond thrilled to do your order for you and be part of your day. Thank you :)

Ruairi was fantastic from day 1! The tasting box was so delicious it was hard to decide on flavours for our cake. We wanted a rustic, naked cake and Ruairi delivered exactly what we had asked for. It was simply beautiful and it tasted absolutely delicious. Ruairi's Kitchen is only in business one year but I have no doubt he will be extrememly successful given the service he provided us. We honestly cannot thank Ruairi enough, we were blown away on the day the cake was spectacular! He was extrememly easy to deal with. We would highly highly recommend. Guests at the wedding are still talking about how tasty the cake was! Laura and Rob xxx

Ruairi was amazing to deal with. He was full of great ideas for us. The cake had 3 different flavours which all our guests loved. He was always contactable no matter what and always contacted us with ideas and plans he had for the cake. I knew we didn't need to worry about our cake as it was like talking to a friend about what we wanted and he went above and beyond and made the most unique and beautiful cake we could ever have imagined.

Our 5yo been obsessed about the Lego Wedding cake ever since we told him about it a couple of months before the big day. And it was everything we expected. Not only was our boy thrilled - many of the adults commented how they’d never seen anything like it. Many thanks Ruairi.

Can only say he was brilliant. Not only was the cakes amazing, the cup cakes, presentation, and willingness to try something he hadn't before and succeed - Ruairi was great all the way. My family aren't cake eaters, but there wasn't a crumb left after the wedding. Made life so easy for us. Couldn't recommend him enough!!!

Ruairi made us the most stunning cake for our recent wedding, it was very reasonably priced and the most delicious cake. Out of 3 tiers there was nothing left uneaten! Ruairi was unbelievably helpful with everything and his talent for decorating is amazing. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding cake and he's very creative so don't be afraid to mention something different like we did. Ours was black with silver moons and stars and was just epic!

We had the chance of having Ruari's first wedding cake and we couldn't be happier. Actually We didn't believe that it was his first wedding cake at that time as it was so professional and good looking. During the process of making it, Ruari answered all our questions and provided samples of the final cake. I strongly recommend his services :)

Hi Gleyton, Thank you so much for your review and kind words. You and Paddy were my first wedding customers and I will always be grateful and thankful for you both for choosing me to do your wedding cake. It was an absolute pleasure to make your semi naked red velvet cake and thank you again. Ruairi.
