That's why we offer a Better than Risk Free Guarantee - if you don't like your cake, return it to the driver for a full refund.

This recipe has taken many years to perfect and is the most cost-effective, and time-efficient. It replaces the need for butter with oil, ensuring the cake remains moist for far longer. By omitting the use of butter, we also reduce production time as there is no need to wait for butter to come to room temperature or to cream it with caster sugar. 

As we are not creaming butter, we don't even need caster sugar. We use granulated sugar instead which is 60% cheaper than caster.

And no, there is absolutely no compromising on flavour as we use buttermilk or yoghurt in the batter which gives the sponge not only a tender crumb, but also a beautiful flavour.

The sponge itself is moist, flavoursome and has just the right structure to be covered in buttercream or fondant decorations. 

This guide includes all the measurements in GRAMS that you'd need to create cakes of various sizes and tall stacked tiered cakes. It includes storage instructions advising on how to prepare in advance which is crucial for when making wedding cakes.

FAQs

Your cake will be delivered in a temperature-controlled vehicle by our experienced delivery driver, ensuring it arrives fresh and in mint condition.

We take great care in delivering your cake, but in the extremely rare case that your cake is damaged we will do everything we can to help. If the cake is damaged upon arrival, simply return the cake to our driver who will bring it back to us for a replacement or a refund. 

Absolutely! During the ordering process for many of our cakes, you can customise them by selecting different flavours, colours, and add personalised messages. If you have specific requirements that aren't available as options on the product of your choice, please email us and we will be able to help further with any quotes for further changes.

To keep your cake safe and fresh, store it in a cool, dark and dry place. Detailed storage instructions will be provided with your cake, in your order confirmation email as well as in our FAQs on cake storage.

Our lead time is a minimum of 2 working days because we bake fresh to order - no one can bake cakes of our standard fresh to order and offer same-day delivery. Please check availability on our delivery date calendar for the nearest available delivery date.
