We cannot recommend Mc G cakes enough for the stunningly beautiful and absolutely delicious wedding cake Brian created for us! From the moment we booked with Brian, the whole experience was effortless in helping to design our dream wedding cake. I cannot praise highly enough the level of professionalism and how he decorated the cake table, to ensure it looked amazing. People were raving about how the two layers tasted too! Would highly recommend booking with Mc G cakes for any event!

Superb choice and delivery 📦 all packaged up beautifully. Ordered cake mail for a birthday gift for a friend in Dublin . She was overwhelmed with the presentation of the gift, indeed the taste and also loved the birthday card.
Would definitely recommend.

McG cakes are just fabulous. The attention to detail is second to none. Each delicious treat is just as tasty as the next.I look forward to my next visit!

I ordered a cake from Brian for my daughter's 10th birthday. She asked for it as part of her birthday presents, we were not disappointed!
The cake looked like a work of art, she burst into tears when she saw it. It was also beyond delicious, we went with raspberry and white chocolate. To say this cake made her day extra special is an understatement. Brian is a pleasure to deal with by email, and delivery was safe and punctual. I will order from McG cakes again, I recommend you do too.
Vanessa J.
Exceptional cake both in terms of aesthetic and taste. Brian did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding cake and really hit the brief in terms of delivering exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely recommend him to all our friends and family in the future as well as using him again for other occasions.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the absolutely gorgeous wedding cake on Sunday. You took a few simple ideas and totally blew them out of the water. The whole table set up was a work of art! And it tasted as amazing as it looked. Our guests couldn’t get enough of it later in the evening, and we were lucky enough to sneak a few slices away to enjoy again the next day.

Brian made our wedding cake in November and it was absolutely delicious, he made the whole process so easy from the first phone call to delivering our beautiful wedding cake! Our guests are still talking about the chocolate orange cake! thanks again Brian from Claire & David
Claire O G.
Brian was fantastic to work with from start to finish. We traveled from Chicago to Ireland for our wedding so there were a lot of logistics to work through & coordinating with McG Cakes was a breeze. Our wedding cake was a work of art (it doesn’t seem fair to simply call it a cake) and it tasted FAB! Our guests were raving about it, and said it’s ruined them for all other wedding cakes. McG cakes was a big part of making our day so special.
Margaret K.
We had Brian make our wedding cake for our big day in October, and I couldn’t have been happier. The cake looked and tasted fab. Everyone loved it. I was delighted the topper and it was exactly as requested and he had set up our cake table perfectly. Brian is excellent at his job and a pleasure to work with, I couldn’t fault him or recommend him highly enough if you’re looking for someone to make your wedding cake!
Katy M.
Could recommend Brian highly enough! He was a dream to work with and created the most incredible cake for our wedding!
Robyn C.

Ann Mc N.
As soon as we saw photos of other wedding cakes from McG, there was no other option for us! Our cake, the confectionery, the setup - everything was amazing! It was a wonderful surprise to see it all when we got to the dining room. Brian recommended adding some pink sails to the cake that were even better than the picture he showed as example. We loved it all. As did our guests!
Karen W.
Was surprised by a beautiful selection of cupcakes, absolutely delicious
Amanda N.
McG cakes were absolutely brilliant on our wedding day and were a pleasure to work with in the lead up to it.The whole set up and display was just perfect. I'm still not over how gorgeous the cake looked, not to mention how divine it tasted!We had almost nothing to take home with us as the guests left very little behind!Would highly recommend.
Sinead M.
Hi Brian
Thank you so much for making a fantastic job of our wedding cake last week. Every last piece of it was eaten! Everyone was talking about how good it tasted.
The best marble cake the Kerry guests ever had! You may be getting an order for a few of them at Christmas from the Kerry side! They were very impressed!

You do a fantastic job & I would highly recommend your company to any future bride & groom.

Thanks so much

Mcg cakes made my beautiful wedding cake display 3 weeks ago at kilronan castle. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It was perfect & better than I ever pictured. I booked mcg cakes straight away when we set our wedding date back in 2019. We had to postpone twice and Brian was so helpful each time. I’d recommend to everyone if you want a beautiful & unique display then look no further than mcg cakes. Thanks again😊
shauna B.
Wonderful cakes that look fantastic and taste delicious.
Ruth M.
When we got engaged the first thing I said was I want to have a McGCakes wedding cake! We had admired them for so long and had already ordered and tried some of Brian’s cake mail previously. It was very easy to work with Brian and his team to agree flavours and design. We knew we were in good hands and Brian is a pro. When we walked into our reception I couldn’t believe that is was actually our cake. It was truly breathtaking and seeing it for first time was a moment that will stay with us. It was so striking and elegant and the way it was presented was stunning. The pictures of us cutting the cake are some of our favourite ones! We went for a three tier cake with Belgian biscuit, classic Victoria and chocolate and caramel. The flavours of each tier were first class. Many of our guests said it was nicest cake they ever tasted and we enjoyed it for the wedding day but also day 2 and day 3! It kept fresh for ages and was just such good quality.Thank you to McGCakes for a truly amazing wedding cake that made our day extra special.
Emer F.
Thanks so much to Brian for kindly baking the lovely cupcakes he made for my nieces 1st Birthday. The iced-chocolate cupcakes looked & tasted amazing. Everyone loved them!

Emma C.
Would highly recommend McG Cakes. The team were a pleasure to deal with. The whole process from designing the cake to organising the samples was extremely professional and well run.

Always up for a challenge and in fairness i have set him challenges over the years but nothing was ever a problem for him. Iv never once been dissapointed with anything i have got off him, everything tastes as good as it looks! Would highly reccommend him for any occasion!
Maeve O.
Brian did our day before desserts and wedding cake for our Wedding at Markree Castle and everything was absolutely amazing and delicious. The day before desserts people were obsessed with and all went that night. The wedding cake was so beautiful and tasted delicious as well.Brian was great to work with and share what we wanted for our wedding. We are a couple from the US who got married in Sligo so sometimes that can be a bit harder but Brian made it easy. We would highly recommend him and McGs.
Meghan K.
Had a big birthday recently and received a beautiful cake from McG Cakes, it was so lovely I didn’t want to cut it but really glad I did it tasted amazing. For a young man not too long self employed he has a great understanding of any and everyone’s requirements. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a cake for any occasion.
Jean M.
This review is a year late, but I cannot say enough amazing things about Mc G Cakes. Brian was an absolute gem to work with on our wedding cake. I’m from the US and had no chance to come to Ireland to taste test or shop around. Our wedding planner suggested Brian and we couldn’t not have been happier with the results. He worked with us long distance to come up with multiple sketched designs. He’s so good the choices were so hard to pick only one. What he created was absolute perfection. It was a show stopper and people to this day still talk about the cake. And the taste - amazing.It was also 2 of our friend’s birthdays. Brian also made two small cakes for them. They were stunning. I wasn’t expecting much but got more than I could have ever imagined. If you’re not sure who to pick, seriously, look no further. Can’t wait to come back and visit.

We recently got our wedding cake from Brian & it did not disappoint. When we booked our wedding there was no question who would do our wedding cake it was always going to be McG Cakes. Like everything Brian does it tasted amazing & his attention to detail was second to none. He made the whole process so easy, was a pleasure to deal with and brought our vision to life. We were both so impressed on the day. A Massive thanks to Brian for being part of our day & there is no doubt that we will be returning customers.

We were so happy we choose Brian for our wedding cake. He not only makes beautiful cakes but they taste delicious too. We received so many compliments. Having gone through 4 wedding reschedules, he was always so accommodating and empathic towards us. I just need to find another occasion now so I can book Brian again!
Amie Ire H.
Would highly recommend, he made my daughters cake with not much notice w and it was absolutely beautiful.
Michelle L.
Brian and the team at McG Cakes were absolutely incredible to deal with through the entire process - booking, design, executing, and delivering the wedding cake of our dreams. Not only did they deliver a beautiful (and delicious) cake, they also custom made cookie favours for each of our guests. Brian was able to source a monogram stamp to match our stationary suite to personalise the cookies and they were perfect. Highly recommend booking McG Cakes for your wedding - fantastic service and products from start to finish 🙂
Meredith D.
Can’t recommend Brian enough, I’ve had two very special cakes created by him, both very beautiful to look at and very creative. It was very easy to communicate with Mc G Cakes with the ideas I had and he was Definitely able to create one of a kind cakes, that tasted as good as they look.
Graceanne R.
We cannot speak highly enough of Brian! Right from the start the process felt So seamless, he really took on board everything we asked for and created not a cake but a work of art! The cake went down a treat and all of our guests raved about it. It was just stunning and so many options to pick from! He was a total professional and there were no issues with having it set up, he really took any of the stress out of it. Thank you Brian!

We ordered the chocolate coated brownie hearts for Valentine's Day and they were absolutely delish! The brownies weren't too sweet at all, and my husband, who isn't mad about sweet things said they were the most delicious brownies he'd ever had! There was a mix up with my order, and the candle I bought with the order wasn't sent out with the brownies, but Brian was super quick and helpful and sent the candle out to me immediately. Great customer care, and incredibly tasty treats!

We would recommend Mc G Cakes for any any couple that is looking for the perfect wedding cake!

Brian, thank you so much for the epic cake and dessert table, it was quite literally breathtaking! I couldn't have imagined how beautiful it would turn out and we are so grateful to you for just being so easy to work with and really taking any hassle or effort out of that part of the wedding - we literally had to do nothing except give a basic outline of colour and what we had in mind, all the work was taken care of by you! We can't thank you enough and it's testament to how good it was that there wasn't a bit left over after the following morning - it was in high demand! Thanks again for everything

Our wedding cake was better than we ever could have asked for! The design was amazing - Brian took the simple ideas we had and created an stunning display that every one of our guests still talks about. The cake flavours were by far the hardest decision we had to make while planning our wedding, as they were all absolutely superb! The cake itself tasted incredible (so much so, our guest were fighting over the leftovers in the morning). It was everything we dreamed of! 5 stars!
Ciara K.
Unbelievable cakes. So talented. Can't recommend him enough.
Marcella M.
Stunning and beautiful! A work of art you can eat 🤤

Mags M.
Mc Gs never ceases to impress us! Brian is doing amazing work and we get to watch his witchcraft all the time on Instragram! Talk about drool worthy!We hired Brian to make a cake for our wedding and he went above and beyond anything we expected. The cake was extremely moist and the flavors were incredible. We did not get a chance to do a cake tasting because we are from Florida, so we were taking a risk but extremely glad we chose him! Now, we are just sad we did not get to try all of the other flavors! The actual design of our cake was spot on. We showed him things that we liked and did not like and he created a masterpiece! We cannot rcommend him enough!
Dusty R.
Exceptional treats! I am not exaggerating. I looked on social media for years before finally getting the opportunity to try them when the pop-shop opened and boy was I not disappointed. The presentation always looks superb. I thought noway does it taste as good as it looks it must be like any other baked good but I was so wrong. When you eat the baked goods you can taste the creative passion gone into every single bite. The kinder bueno filling is so unique and creamy. The cookie sandwich is chocolately and creamy. If you have not yet tried these baked goods you will not regreat trying these believe me. Don't walk Run.. as this place can often sell out of certain baked goods early.
Niamh M.
A huge thank you to Brian for making the most beautiful and delicious chocolate biscuit cake for our wedding day. I wanted something simple and fuss free but in hindsight we should have gone for 5 or 6 tiers - the cake was all eaten by the end of our day 2! People were raving about it! So cheers Brian, we'll be back for the next event!
