I rushed to Licks Cake Design last minute for an air hostess figure after being let down by someone else. A family friend made my 30th birthday cake and the little figure was the cherry on top! Alicks was so welcoming and accommodating, I will definitely be back again. Thank you! More...

Alick's BTS-inspired birthday cake was amazing and went down a storm with our birthday girl. In fact, she was so surprised that she couldn't talk. The design totally exceeded our expectations and we were all sad to put a knife to it. Once we had done it, though, the cake disappeared in record time. Go for chocolate sponge, it's a winner. Thanks, Licks. 10/10. More...

Alicks created a fantastic cake topped with an icing anatomical heart for our wedding and the guests wouldn’t stop saying how delicious it was! Highly recommended!

Absolutely delighted with the Incredibles cake that Alicks made (at very short notice!) for our daughter's 4th birthday. The sponge was delicious and the decoration was exactly as imagined. Alicks was great to deal with. Would highly recommend! More...

We needed a gluten free cake without buckwheat so Alick created a new recipe just for my our folk’s diamond wedding. It was delicious- many thanks

The cake was very well received by all the family in Orkney. Due to unusual amount of snow, we were unable to fly on the scheduled day but did a couple of days later. The cake was well packaged and survived the flight and was enjoyed by all. Thank you very much to Licks Cake Design for the fabulous job! More...

HUGE thanks to Alicks for making this adorable cake for my parents' golden wedding anniversary.

My poor wee mum was in hospital over the anniversary, so it was quite a difficult and upsetting time for the family. Alicks treated us with real care and kindness, taking time to get things right by speaking to me and my dad, looking at photos, paying attention to detail and checking in with us on the design.

We were absolutely delighted with the cake and it tasted amazing too.
Thanks for an amazing creation that made our special occasion really memorable.

Ordered a birthday cake and some cupcakes for a 40th Birthday- the service received was second to none and the cakes were delicious! I had requested a ‘Gameboy’ shaped cake and the end result was fantastic- the birthday boy was delighted and even the staff at Prestonfield were commenting on how great the cake looked. The cupcakes were amazing- delicious sponge and the icing was so moreish. Thank you for making everything so perfect, and such a stress free cake ordering experience. Highly recommend! More...

We ordered a Pokémon cake for my sons 6th birthday and he absolutely loved it! We gave Alicks a brief on what we were looking for and the design he came up with was great. Not only did the cake look amazing but it tastes wonderful! The cake was gluten free so my daughter could eat it as well but it did not taste any different to a normal cake, everyone who tried it enjoyed it. I would definitely order from Licks Cake Design again! More...

Alicks was super helpful, getting our cake made up and delivered at short notice too! The cake itself was very good too, and the decorations were as close to our logo as it's possible to be with icing - top marks from me!

Superb cake for a wonderful celebration at the office, a 20" cake eaten in less than 24 hours, shows how scrumptious it was! I would highly recommend Licks Cake Design for any occasion and very grateful for the delivery service! More...

The actual sponge cake was so yummy. Reminded me of fresh home baked cake.
I needed the cake quickly and Alicks was professional and helpful and understanding in getting the cake to us, on time.
Great cake and great service!!

I loved my Wedding Cake. Quite simply the best I have ever tasted and the design look even better than I could have imagine. Very professional and they could even cater for my all quest. Gluten/Wheat and Egg Free and Vegans. I never even knew you could make cakes for them all. And my "full fat fully sugar cake" was great too! Defiantly recommend them to my friends :-) More...

Excellent Service! We have ordered a 3 tier cake for our Hotel`s birthday party. It looked amazing and it tasted delicious. Alicks, the owner were very kind and helpful throughout the whole process. We asked to deliver the cake to the hotel and it has arrived the time we asked for. We look forward to order more cake from them in the future. More...

Had a vegan "Black Cat Cake' made for my daughter's 21st birthday party. The cake looked amazing and was enjoyed by everyone - not a whisker left!

We have had a great experience using Licks both for our wedding cake and a couple of specialist gluten free birthday cakes. Alicks is a very friendly and helpful chap to deal with and the cakes we've had have all been delicious and stylish.

For wedding cakes there are a large selection of flavours to choose from, which were all appreciated by our guests (there was no cake left over! ). We also found the pricing for wedding cakes really good value compared to other local suppliers.
