RESOUNDING endorsements from customers have helped wedding cake maker Elsa Santana come out tops in a national competition.
Her business Let it Be Cake, which she runs from her home in Upper Selsdon Road, Selsdon, has been highly commended in the Ice the Cake "incredible" wedding suppliers awards. This is the first time Elsa, who started the business two years ago, has entered the annual competition.
She said: "I am really excited about doing so well. Although you enter yourself before you can even be considered for the final you have to receive ten written testimonials from customers. I have seen some of feedback from those testimonials and they were great. It is so nice to know from your customers that you are doing the right things."
She will now receive a certificate marking her achievement which she can display at future wedding shows when looking for new customers.
Elsa said: "It is going to be very useful because sometimes it's hard to convince people that you can run a business from home which is doing so well."
Elsa added she intended to continue to concentrate on making wedding cakes.
She said: "I love making wedding cakes and it is a great industry to be in. It is so good to be part of someone's big day."
