Linsey Walker, owner of Hull Cake Boutique, said: "We've been going for two years now and this has been the highlight of my career so far.
"To have such a big star say your work is 'amazing' is brilliant.
"I was ecstatic when he posted it on Twitter.
"He's so down-to- earth.
"I went to the concert with my husband Ian.
"We were quite near the front and the atmosphere was amazing."
Hull Cake Boutique made the cake out of vanilla and Victoria sponge and created a sugar paste figure of Ed sitting on a sofa.
The business specialises in everything from fun novelty birthday cakes, to delicate vintage wedding cakes and more.
