    Please note at busy times of the month/year we do tend to get queues and sell out early. We update Facebook and Instagram often, so you can check our stock levels before you set off. Alternatively, please ring the shop to find out!

  • Everything we make is a day in advance. On Mondays when we are closed, we work to make cakes for the shop on a Tuesday.  If we were to open Monday it would mean working Sundays. We like to sleep every now and then!

  • Unfortunately, because of the high volumes of customers we get to the shop on a daily basis (usually travelling from outside the town), we work on a first come first served basis. We do not currently have the staff or capacity to take orders and/or reserve.

  • Yes! We now offer brownies, blondies, and cake jars for delivery around the UK. We hope to expand it to more of our product range soon!

  • Our wedding diary is unfortunately closed for the foreseeable future. For all other celebration cakes (e.g. birthdays, christenings etc), we take orders in store or over the phone.

    We require a £20 deposit to reserve your slot in the diary.

  • Cupcakes
    £2 each or 12 for £20

    We are currently only taking wedding cake bookings for 2019 and 2020 weddings.

  • Unfortunately, we don’t currently have the demand for these dietary requirements on a daily basis.

    We are able to make gluten free, dairy free or vegan cupcakes and cakes to order however as they are not our specialities, some designs may be limited.

    We do not currently offer gluten free, dairy free or vegan options online.

  • We don’t currently supply a menu, as our treats change every day. We only decide the day before or on the morning that we open which flavours we will have in that day, so it is impossible for us to tell you what we will have in store when you are visiting.
