Flavour Menu

Not only do our cakes look impressive, but they taste delicious too!

Our cakes are always baked fresh to order and we pride ourselves on using the finest quality and freshest ingredients available. As examples, we typically use unsalted butter, locally sourced free-range eggs, Tiptree and Bonne Maman preserves, Bay Tree fruit curds, Madagascan vanilla bean extract, organic cocoa powder and the finest Belgian chocolate for our chocolate cake and ganache.

Our wedding cakes consist of four layers of sponge with three layers of filling such as buttercream, preserves and curds All of our cakes are encased in a layer of white chocolate ganache before icing, this enables us to get a flawless foundation for your cake and achieve crisp sharp edges.

All of our cakes are baked and created in an environment where, nuts, gluten, eggs and milk are present, therefore we cannot guarantee that our cakes will be free of traces of these products. However, should you have guests with allergies and intolerances, then please do let us know at the time of ordering and every effort will be made to reduce cross contamination.

We offer a wide range of cake flavours and fillings but should there be a particular type of cake or combination of flavours that you like, that isn't on our menu, we rise to the challenge to create it!


Traditional and an overall crowd pleaser, our vanilla cake is a light sponge made with finest Madagascan vanilla bean extract. Popular fillings for this cake are a creamy vanilla buttercream with or without seedless raspberry jam, or raspberry curd buttercream.
