I got the iced fruit one from Asda, don't know if it's still available but worth a look, it was two tiers and so moist x

My daughter getting her cake from M&S for her wedding in March

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Solid 90% sure my friend did and she did some extra piping herself...she was also looking at keeping the cost down...I don't like fruit cake tho so I can't tell you how good it was 😂 the icing was nice tho

I did fir my first wedding, everyone asked for cake makers details x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes it was perfect, just added our own choice of decorations to it. Lot less hassle and much cheaper than most quotes we had. 😊. All the best on your wedding day 👰 🎩

We're doing the M&S naked 3 tier cake for our wedding. Heard loads of positive reviews about it xx

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My friends had an M&S wedding cake. It was the best cake i have had at a wedding (including my own) x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We had doughnuts! Bought a Perspex cake stand from amazon and 100 Krispy Kremes 🙂

Our M&S 3 tier pork pie cake went down a treat!! Such a good option and we also had Connie and Colin caterpillar cakes for the kids and those who wanted cake not pork pie. Totally recommend!! They're huge too, a lot bigger than I expected x

Mine was from M&S, was a lovely cake. Couldn't fault it

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes we did sorry got not photos but it was absolutely lovely and by the time you’ve dressed it no one knows any different

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes, got the florist to do flowers for it and it looked beautiful. Also had the Colin and Connie bride and groom.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

I did and the cake itself was amazing we did the different sized tiers which you can choose the type of cake etc that you want, just a word of warning don’t have the top tier as fruit cake as ours was too heavy for the sponge to hold and had to display it differently to how we wanted! It was an amazing cake though and every piece got eaten!

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

A friend did and it was lovely. Just added our own flowers

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

I’m getting married abroad but having a party when home and will be buying a single m and s cake and decorating it with fresh flowers to keep costs down...

I had an ASDA fruit cake dressed for cutting as we also had cupcakes it was really pretty and very nice according to the hubby. We also debated the m&S ones the lemon cake is so nice from their wedding range

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yup. We did. Decorated it ourselves too with items purchased at our local bakers x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes I then bought lots of sugar/edible flowers from the internet and decorated it myself. A lot cheaper and more personal.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We had their white chocolate one, it was amazing! All our guests loved it too, they are highly recommended, good luck with your big day 💍

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Mine was m and s. Everyone loved it!

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We bought a selection of morrisons cakes, triple choc, catterpillar, minon, rose decorated victoria sponge and a few of their best range ones. Cost us £40 and fed over 150 guests. Everyone loved the variety!

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes but sorry no pic and I planned on put our glass heart with Mr and Mrs on and date but ended putting a me 2 u bears topper on Intend x congratulations on your up coming wedding x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My best friend did she had some flowers put on to jazz it up!! Fair play it was lovely x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes! Got a white chocolate icing one. Would highly recommend

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Sue Murray look how good they all look!

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My wedding cake was unintentional M&S. My original cake baker took ill at the wheel of her car on the morning of my wedding so I had to find another cake ASAP. Only place that has celebration cakes available was M&S and I have to say for a shop bought cake it was delicious.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My mum bought me a lovely cake there when I got engaged, delicious! You can also get them to make you the cake part and you can take it to someone else to decorate if you had someone in mind

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We were going to have the cake from m&s ordered the trial cakes and didn’t like them so might be worth trying before you buy?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My mum has ordered my cake from M&S and my fiance has his heart set on the cheese cake. I did find a cheaper one that was actually topped with cheddar heart.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

I had an M&S cake. It was lovely. Looked more than what I paid for it and I have to be honest, hands down the nicest cake I've ever tasted, even the guests said how tasty it was x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Kerry Trinder looks like m&s do good wedding cakes xxx

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Thanks for all of your help everyone. when looking at the pictures on the m&s website you can't visualise what they look like. but the pictures you have all supplied will help me a lot. thanks.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes my friend did it and you couldn't tell once it had flowers and was on a stand x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Ive been told by so many people to do this im considering doing it

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

I am getting married December this year and was looking at getting a m&s cakes xc

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We had M&S cakes and decorated them ourselves, Easy order service, easy collection. And was delicious. Heartily recommend 😀

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Molly McEwan look at the comments, some good ideas x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Definitely go for it, their cakes are amazing. Might be biased cos I work for them, but they are really good. We take quite a few wedding cake orders and I've not heard anyone come back to complain x

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

I'm making my own....bulk buy betty Crocker sponge cake mixes cos they come out perfect everytime and doing a naked wedding cake.

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Yes!!! But because we are STILL WAITING for our wedding photos 16 weeks later, I have no photos to show you!!!
It was delicious though!

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

We bought one of each cake from Costco and had a desert table instead

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

We got a 2 tier patisserie Valerie cake big enough for the wedding party, then M&S "slicing bars" in matching flavours to make up the numbers. Worked a treat.

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Yes go got it

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

I did it was fine. decorate it yourself

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Mine was M&S didn’t have any problems

UKbride Member 17 Jan 2020

We ordered a m&s one, three tiers being sponge, red velvet and chocolate if I remember! Lovely cake, just got ribbon which the hotel put on for us and the florest put a couple spare flowers on top. Simple, beautiful, cheap and most importantly delicious

UKbride Member 18 Jan 2020

We bought the sponge and chocolate for my Mums 60th. They looked great and were easy to decorate ourselves. But they didn't taste that great to be honest

UKbride Member 19 Jan 2020

Our M&S cake tasted delicious and it was fun to decorate it with my bridesmaids at the venue the day before. Ours was a bit wonky but it added to the charm 😜 however if you’d be bothered by that, I’d say have the tiers flush to each other rather than raised on plinths. It cost way less than others I’d seen and did the job perfectly.
