Lea made us a fabulous chocolate cake for my grandsons birthday when we were on holiday in Portugal. He was absolutely delighted and very surprised... It was covered in chocolate and Jelly snakes - just what a 6 year old loves!! Thank you so much Lea - Sandra xxx
Leanne made my 21st birthday cake, I am a musician and I really liked how she made it in the shape of a piano, the detailing was excellent and the madera cake was delicious. I would definitely recommend her. You can really see the care and time that goes in to each design and recipe- Jacob D'Arcy Johnson
"My hubby Mark and i got married at the beautiful Casa do largo, Vilamoura Portugal where our wedding planner Heather put us in touch with the lovely Leanne. If we are honest we really didnt think our cake would compare to any at home here in Northern Ireland but i forwarded pics, ideas and flavours to Leanne and boy did she blow us away.
I wanted a simply but classy blush pink wedding cake to match my dress and colour scheme... it was like Leanne knew exactly what i was thinking, our cake was more beautiful than we ever expected and it was delicious. Leanne also created cupcakes for our guests to have as dessert at our wedding meal & served with ice cream & fresh cream... they where sooo good we all ended up cutting the cake and serving it too for dessert as everyone couldn't get enough lol
We loved the time and detail put into our cake and after meeting Leanne she puts love into every cake she makes and i almost didnt want to cut it lol
Leanne our wedding cake was the cake of my dreams and we cant thank you enough for everything you did to make sure we had the best cake for our amazing wedding day. See u in october for our 1st wedding anniversary
lots of love and thanks The Craig Grahams x
Leanne made the cakes for my work leaving party, they were exquisite! She ensured they were not only beautiful and yummy but personal to me too! I love music, Leanne had incorporated this with delicate touches and this made the cakes unique. Thank you Leanne!
Leanne recently made me a cake for my 50th birthday celebrations. The cake was made in the shape of my favourite bottle of champagne and it looked amazzzing, she really nailed it, even down to the edible cork! But not only did the cake look amazing it tasted amazing too! Sometimes novelty cakes look fantastic but the cakes themselves are a bit of a disappointment but it was most certainly not the case here. The cake itself was delicious and i was definitely not disappointed. The only thing better than drinking a bottle of Veuve is eating one made by Leanne! -Hazel
We just wanted to say thank you for our beautiful cake you made for our wedding. We went for a lemon drizzle it was very moist and light and was a firm favourite with all the guests. The decorative icing in the colours we had requested were perfect for us

Leanne made the wedding cake for our special day at Casa do Largo which is a beautiful venue located in The Old Village, Vilamoura.
Everything about the service we received from Leanne was excellent. She interpreted what we asked for and made something better than we could have even imagined. This was despite the fact that our design was quite unique as we wanted to take the emblem that my cousin had designed for our invitations and use this on the top of the cake (and use other design elements from the invite for the tops of the accompanying cupcakes). Leanne had the emblems created in edible sugar paper and it all looked amazing! Another challenge was that our wedding guest numbers changed a couple of times and we asked her for a few alterations only a week or so out. Leanne made no fuss at all about this which was great. Nothing was too much trouble for Leanne, and when I asked her if she could make pretty edible lace cases for the cupcakes, she was happy to do so, even though this must have been a lot of extra work on her part.
As well as our wonderful wedding cake, Leanne also made a mermaid cake for my niece's 5th Birthday which was the day before the wedding. This was spectacular too! In fact, when people ask my niece what her favourite thing was about Auntie Amy's wedding, she will tell them "my mermaid cake"!! Kids are so funny :)
Lots of our guests commented that both the main cake and the accompanying cupcakes (which were a mixture of lemon and chocolate) were of a very high standard and tasted beautiful. Thank you Leanne so much for your hard work and for making us a truly unique wedding cake.
For our wedding on the 21st May 2016 at Aldeia da Pedralva (Vila do Bispo) we wanted something a bit different to go with our boho themed wedding. We can not thank Lea enough for the most beautiful, gorgeous and amazingly tasting naked wedding cake we have ever seen! All our guests were wowed at how spectacular it looked and I am sure our photographer took more photos of the cake than she did of us (plus it was one of the first photos she posted to her company facebook!)
Lea was so helpful with the choice of flavours and the lemon drizzle is to die for – we were eating leftover cake for breakfast 2 days after!! We would also like to thank Lea for delivering the cake for us, making the day so hassle free – even though the venue was over 70kms away from her!
For anyone planning a wedding in the Algarve and looking for a show stopper cake – LoveLeaCakes is the place to go.
Lots of love and thanks from Kelly & Robert xx
On behalf of myself and my new husband Chris, I would like to thank Leanne for making our amazing wedding cake. She was recommended to us by our wedding planner and I must say we were astounded by the quality, detail and mouthwatering taste of the end product. When we first met Leanne, around 8 months before the wedding, we showed her a picture of a birdcage shaped cake that we found on pintrest, which matched our wedding theme. As it was so unusual, I doubted that it would be possible to make something similar, but Leanne instilled us with confidence and had no doubt that she would be able to re-create it! On the day, we were absolutely amazed that she had managed to make such as masterpiece. The cake fit in with our theme excellently and was an ideal centrepiece for photographs. We chose a raspberry and white chocolate sponge and the taste did not disappoint. It remained moist and yummy even a couple of days after the wedding! We could not have asked for a more beautiful cake, which added to the spirit of our wedding day. Leanne is a true professional and has an amazing talent. We are so pleased she was able to be part of our special day. Thanks again! - Steph
I asked Leanne to do a cake for my dads birthday, and as he loves playing cards I thought it would be a great surprise to get him a poker themed cake so I asked Leanne and she did just that for us!
My dad loved the cake, and it wasn't only beautiful on the outside but also delicious on the inside! :D thank you Lea!!
We would both like to thank you for the dedication and care you put into making our wedding cake - from trying different baking techniques to making sure our wishes were fulfilled with the design.
The cake looked lovely with beautiful handcrafted roses spiraling down from the top and white jasmine-like petals scattered around. The flavour was really delicious and we were glad to have a marble-effect rather than the usual sponge. Size-wise it was great as well, as we could distribute the cake the following day when visiting our family and friends and enjoy the lovely flavour once more. We did keep some of the roses as keepsake as they are just so pretty!

Myself and my husband Robbie would just like to say a huge thank you for making our wonderful wedding cake on 5th September 2016.
We received so many compliments about the cake on the day it was beautiful and exactly what we had envisaged! We chose the wedding cake with individual vintage cupcakes for our day. You were so helpful and kind from the beginning and told us to simply send a photo of a wedding cake we liked and you would make it........you are so talented it is unbelievable!!!
So once again thanks for your professionalism and good service, it was first class!
Love Carolyn & Robbie Melia xxxxx
"Leanne was a fantastic wedding cake designer. We really valued how comfortable she made us feel, her flexibility and her incredible culinary skills in ensuring that each layer of cake satisfied the many different tastes at our wedding. It was a beautiful cake and we will remember the day for the rest of our lives. Thanks Leanne!"

Absolutely amazing cake for my wedding day!! Completely trusted leanne as she was quick to respond and very welcoming with my idea's. The cake blew me away on the wedding day, a 4 layered naked cake with beautiful iced flowers. I even managed to take some home to the uk! One week later and it still tastes delicious. I would highly recommend loveleacakes. Xxx - Joanne
Thanks so much for our wedding cake, it's was fantastic, just what we were after, and you done an amazing job on the thistles and tartan we requested. We both were really pleased with it.

We held our wedding at casa do largo in vilamoura old village and Leanne made our cake for us. We spoke via email and I sent her a few pics of what I wanted and she came up with an amazing cake, not only looked fabulous but tasted great too. We had a two tier cake and both layers were a different flavour and we served this as dessert for our wedding guests. I would definitely recommend Leanne and we are very greatful, what a fantastic creation. Thanks xx
