Sustainable, luxury cakes using seasonal fillings with eco practices. 

There is no point having a stunning cake which uses terrible ingredients and tastes the pits. Myself and my wonderful Mum, Lyn, have ensured all our cakes not only use the finest ingredients and seasonal fillings, but have also perfected each recipe to ensure you receive a cake to remember and one your guests won't forget in a hurry! 

These days I can take no credit for how soft and delicious our sponges are. She is the master of the oven! 

We hope you love the sound of our flavours!

Cakes that prompt a nostalgic moment or stir a memory of a cake baked with love, by someone priceless. 

Eco friendly baking

I am always keen to make sustainable switches in my business.  Here are a few delicious changes which not only affect my environmental impact, but make them blooming delicious .

 

  • Whenever possible I use seasonal fruit for my fillings. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are all from British farms. The blackberries are foraged by my Diamond team

  • I use delicious Belgian Callebaut chocolate in my cakes! All cakes have a yummy white chocolate ganache coating for added stability and to make it extra tasty.  Both the chocolate and the cocoa I use are Fairtrade.

  • I use plant based cream for our ganache to lower the amount of dairy I'm  using. The milk in my recipes is organic.
