We bake all our cakes from scratch using good quality ingredients. We do not use cake mixes or buy cakes in from another supplier as some cake decorators do! Because all of our cakes are baked to order, we do not need to over-sweeten them in order to increase the shelf life as is the case with most mass produced cakes. Our cakes therefore taste like traditional home baked cakes.
We are also able to offer wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free cakes as required.
Rich fruit cake
Made with good quality ingredients including fresh eggs and muscovado sugar. The fruit is first soaked in brandy and the baked cake is then matured to produce a moist cake with an excellent flavour. The cake is covered with marzipan and sugar-paste or royal icing and decorated to your requirements.
I have lost count of the number of times my customers have told me that they do not normally like rich fruit cake, but they enjoyed eating this one!
We normally require a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice for a rich fruit cake as we bake to order and the cake needs time to mature. However, we can sometimes work to tighter timescales so please do ask as I will always do my best to help.
Light fruit cake
If a rich fruit cake is not to your liking, then this is a good alternative. Again, we use only good quality ingredients including rum soaked dried apricots, sultanas, brazil nuts, pineapple and ginger. This cake has a delicious flavour but is not dark in colour like a rich fruit cake. This cake would normally be covered with marzipan and sugar-paste. It seems to be popular with men!
A minimum of two weeks notice is required for a light fruit cake.
A moist vanilla flavoured sponge cake with a seedless raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream filling, or a delicious chocolate sponge with a chocolate buttercream filling. Sponge cakes are normally covered with sugar-paste and your choice of decoration. These cakes taste nothing like the mass produced cakes found on the shelves of most major supermarkets.
We would normally require at least one weeks notice for a sponge cake, but ordering earlier would be preferred particularly during busy times.
