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.

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.
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.
Alexandra and D.
We are enjoying our Facebook win for Father's Day! Really impressive packaging and the goodies inside are top notch. Super gift idea, will definitely be buying from Mc G!

Thank you so much to mc g cakes for our amazing christening cake it was the Centre piece of our event and tasted fab ...... pleasure to deal with and super talent .
Eileen L.
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.
Highly recommend Mc G cakes, cake was a masterpiece and delicious too. Thanku sooo much.
Edel H.
Could recommend Brian highly enough! He was a dream to work with and created the most incredible cake for our wedding!
Robyn C.
Absolutely delicious treats, tried the filled Easter egg today and each element was perfect! Yummy
Lucy R.
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.
Got a 40th birthday cake for wife which completely exceeded all expectations. Everyone loved the cake and we will definitely use again
Gerard M.
I absolutely loved our wedding cake. The design was exactly what I wanted but I wasn't sure I had even given a good description !! With the madness of the day I had completely forgot about the cake until the reception and it was just stunning. Tasted fab as well ! Brian and Aisling were very easy to work with.
Fiona K.
Mc G bring to you a gentle sweet and taste bakes, very fresh and the lovely and friendly customer care. If you ever become to cross with them don't doubt to buy any of they deliciousness. You will be smiling from inside outside. 🌼
Juani G.
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!
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.
Aisling C.
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.
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.

Thank you so much Brian for a beautiful cake. From the moment I spoke to Brian he was such a great help. He made the exact cake I wanted, I couldnt have asked for better. He went beyond that with the delivery and the setting up of the cake,the cake stand and topper and working with other suppliers I had.
I would highly recommend Brian. Thank you so much for making it easy.

Brian was the BEST supplier EVER! Seriously, our wedding cake was just so perfect, even better than what we had imagined and so, so reasonably priced. Brian went above and beyond for us, he was so professional and just took the pressure off us from day one. He was in contact with our florist, organised delivery with our venue, set everything up and gave cutting instructions to the kitchen. He took care of every detail, even the stuff we didn't even think needed to be organised. You'd be doing yourself a huge favour by having Brian on your wedding supplier team.

Caitríona F.
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
Gemma D.
I got a beautiful cake sent all the way to Wexford for my son’s christening and it couldn’t have been nicer. Everybody complimented both topping and filling � 10/10
Dee F.
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!

Mc G Cakes made the entire experience enjoyable from start to finish. Great communication and everything went smoothly on the day. Brian and Aisling were able to take account to our preffered style and bring it to life . Our guests absolutely loved the wedding cake and we managed to save a slice for ourselves.
Fiona L.
Michelle W.
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.
Got a retirement cake for my dad recently from Mc G cakes, it was amazing. The attention to detail was incredible and it tasted just as good as it looked! Went down a treat with everyone, dad was delighted. Couldn’t recommend Brian enough.
Clare Q.
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.
Couldnt praise this man enough, absolute gent to deal with and everything he does is done to no less than 100% perfection! Always up for a challenge and in fairness i have set him challenges over the years but nothing was ever a problem for him.

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.

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!

Mc G Cakes made our wedding Cake & we couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

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.

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 🙂

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!
