As bespoke bakers, each cake is tailor made to your exact requirements, therefore the level of decoration, type of cake and filling required will affect the total cost of the finished cake.

Carter Valentino bakers are highly skilled professionals and only use the best ingredients, therefore do not offer “budget” cakes.

Don’t take our word for it …here is just a small selection of reviews that our customers have left for us on social media.
“I can’t thank Maria enough for our fantastic Wedding Cake(s)! She has such a talent for bringing people’s scattered and random ideas together, making them into a picture perfect reality. We were so overwhelmed with finished design that just enhanced our Special Day even more.
Oh, and they taste blooming lovely!
Thank you so much :-)” Mr & Mrs Allen
”Maria & Donna made a wonderful Sicilian lemon cake for my Mum’s 80th birthday. It was beautifully made with an iced flower posy that matched the flower arrangements Mum has at home; exactly as Maria and I discussed. It made the day extra special; Mum loved it and our whole family enjoyed it. Perfect!” Mr S Wood
“I had my sons 1st birthday cake custom made by Carter Valentino and i was amazed at every detail of the cake and the care taken by 2 lovely ladies!! Was a shame to cut it as it was a work of art! And the cake tasted as amazing as it looked! Will definitely be coming back for future cakes! Great value for money also! ” Ms M Thomspon
“Carter Valentino created our wedding cake for our wedding in April 2017. The cake was amazing and we had so many comments from friends and family about how beautiful it looked. Carter couldn’t do enough to help and the tasting session was an amazing experience which we’ll remember for a lifetime. Maria has such an amazing sense of humour we really enjoyed the experience. They worked with our other suppliers (flower lady, decorator and venue) to arrange the drop off etc and it all went as smoothly as you’d hope. There was so much cake left over but one of the best things about using Carter Valentino is you can freeze the cake. So we have a selection of each of the cakes that we can enjoy whenever we want. Finally I have to mention the toppers. We’d found something a little different which Carter created for us from scratch. They glazed them after the event to make them last that bit longer. They really couldn’t do enough for us and overall they are second to none.” Mr and Mrs Cutler
