Have a read of some feedback we recieved about our Cakes and puddings!

Dear Faithfulls

I just wanted to congratulate you on the most delicious Xmas pudding that my family and I have ever had!

I was fortunate enough to come across your stand at The Bath Market and purchased a Boozy Orange Pudding - it was just so lovely and had a light, nutty texture far superior to anything we have had before- considering my family are non-Xmas Pudding eaters, they are now converted!!!!

I just wanted to say thanks and how much we loved it -

Kind Regards,Sarah Matthews 2016


Just wanted to say that i bought a cherry and kirsch pudding at Westonbirt craft fair. it was amazing-the best pudding my husband and I have ever tasted.It won't be the last one that I buy!

Many thanks,

Hello was lovely - proper home made tasting as a pud should taste, not mucked about rubbish or over the top fancy, ain't broke so fix it 'til it is stuff.  Thank you so much. Now, I think it would be even better with a little more time to mature, so could you let me know please when you will start producing the batch for 2017 so I can order early?

Many thanks,Jane 2016


Hi Gemma, Just to let you know the mince pies arrived safe and sound, I was out unfortunately when they arrived yesterday and so they redelivered them today.  They are absolutely delicious!  I have to say I received a hamper from Harrods yesterday from a client which contained a box of mince pies, and I have to tell you there is absolutely no comparison in quality.  Yours win hands down! See you at Wisley next time.

Dear Gemma,
We have just opened one of your Christmas Cakes (early) because it looked so good.
It has been sitting on our kitchen counter since the Wisley Craft Fair you attended and my husband kept eyeing it up.  So tonight we each had a very tiny piece and OH was it ever the BEST Christmas Cake we had ever tasted.  I shall try to make it last as long as possible.

Well done....I see you are all sold out on line.  I shall be there at Wisley next year.  It was your last small un-iced one and wow.

Thank you!  Have a great Christmas.

Best wishes,

Dear Gemma, I just wanted to email you to say your Christmas pudding was absolutely delicious! My mum said, it was the best ever! Until now I have always bought my pudding from Lime Tree Pantry as they were so light, but they were not at the Ardingly craft fair in November. When I went to the craft fair at Wisley in November I sampled your Christmas pudding and found it to be so light and tasty. I don't normally contact companies, but just felt I had to sing your praises for this delightful pudding.

Kind regards

This year our children and grand children were not with us for Christmas dinner, so my wife of 56 years did not make our Christmas puddings. WE bought one of your Cherry and Kirsh Christmas Pudding at Stroud Farmers


I just wanted to say how delicious this was. I bought mine at the Christmas Fair at wisley in November, I think, and I can truly say it's the best fruit cake that I've ever eaten.  I see on your website that you're completely sold out, but perhaps you could put me on your mailing list when you do make new supplies. You really deserve the Country Living Kitchen Table award. I subscribe to that magazine and I often wonder if the start up companies make a go of things.   Good luck with your enterprise.

Kind regard,

I bought your Christmas cake at Stroud market just before Christmas and I want to congratulate you.  It is the best cake we have ever eaten and we are still savouring it very slowly as we really don't want it to come to an end!  Admittedly we didn't start tucking in until last week so we are not being that saintly.....

I look forward to next Christmas!

Thank you,Judy Bill 2016

Dear Gemma

I just wanted to thank you for the little gluten free Xmas pudding that I bought from the Bath Xmas market last year. The young man who sold it to me was very helpful and pleasant too. We cooked it today (Easter Sunday) and it was delicious. My husband has coeliac disease and also does not really like Xmas pudding! However, he really enjoyed it and said that it was not too sweet.

Thank you so much. I wish you all the best and hope that you continue to produce the gluten free products.

Hi Gemma, Just to say THANKYOU! The cake was wonderful and I will probably order one next Christmas as well. Take care- and bake some more great cakes.

Just wanted to pass on my Thanks to the person that made the cakes, they turned up today and I am having my first slice with my cup of tea delicious! My only concern is that im going to gain 20lbs before Christmas, not sure if I want to give any away now. They are great!

Hello, I bought one of your cakes from the victorian fair in Worcester, not for Christmas but for my 60th birthday, can I just say it was one of the best cakes I have had in many a year and I will be buying one for my 61st birthday next year.

Jane, Worcester 2012

Hi, it is you I understand I have to thank for the really delicious chocolate cake you sent us. I am told you normally make fruit cakes and this one was a departure from the norm, so thank you very much its was very much enjoyed and came in perfect condition.

Hi Gemma

Just a quick note to thank you for the lovely cake you made for my mum’s 80th birthday. Every one commented on how lovely and moist it was; it was very much enjoyed by all. I will certainly be recommending you to my friends.

Thanks once again

If I were you I wouldn’t look any further than Faithfull’s Quality Baking for the most delicious Christmas cake ever.  Forget making your own even, as it won’t come near, however good you think yours is! I thought that I had tasted the quintessential Christmas cake in my father’s example (a wonderful cook and baker who made a dozen or so every year before he died) and everyone who tasted them loved them, but I have to admit that this is, without question, the best Christmas cake I have ever eaten. It is packed with quality ingredients, the texture is perfect, not dry, not sticky but moist, the flavour is exceptional, and it is clearly made with love and care – definitely top of the tree and an AAA grade cake (in finance parlance!). I shall be ordering several for Christmas, as presents and for home consumption. Delicious, delicious!

Christine Campbell, London 2011

Highly commended in the Best Baker Category in Country Living Magazine  September 2012 issue, described them as Moist, fruity with a satisfying pecan crunch, Gemma's Christmas cakes are sought after all year round!

"A lovely flavour more like the American style of fruitcake"
