Bespoke Cake Guide
Have you got a special occasion coming up or do you want to order a cake just because?
Cakes are quite often the centrepiece to an event and we want to make sure that it's exactly got that wow factor. We'll work closely with you to plan and create the right cake that you have in mind. Please see our basic flavour list and size/pricing guide below.
The Little House cakes come with 3 tall layers, although you may choose to add or remove a layer should you wish to do so. We typically work with silky and creamy Swiss meringue buttercream or chocolate ganache to cover our cakes and fill ours with house-made jams, curds, compotes and caramels. Gluten-free, egg-free and vegan cakes are also available upon request.
All of our dairy are procured from the award-winning local Blackmore Vale dairy farm and the eggs are from the free-range Pondhead Poultry farm just down the road from us. We love to work with our local suppliers and use high quality and ethical ingredients, and seasonal fruits to ensure that they are at their optimum standard.
Give us a call, pop us an email or fill up the contact form below and we’ll be happy to advise you on the size, flavours and design which would best suit your dietary needs or budget.

What People Say...
"The cake was absolutely fabulous. So scrumptious, we loved the taste, texture and the decorations. You have brilliant attention to details. I really liked how those lemon drops where right next to the white chocolate. I think all the flavours compliment and balance each other very well. The cake isn't overwhelmingly sweet because of the lemon and the sponge is so light. Also the blueberry jam is delicious and gives it a twist.
My partner said it was a "sophisticake". I can't wait to have another slice tonight"
