HEXAGONAL CAKES BAKED TO ORDER - PLEASE ALLOW 10-14 DAYS FOR DELIVERY.
When buying baked to order items, we will delay the despatch of your entire order until the specially baked cake is ready to save you extra deliver charges. If you need other items to be despatched sooner, please place a separate order for the baked to order item.
Our ready to decorate rich fruit cake bases are ideal when you are short of time, or if you prefer to concentrate on decorating rather than baking! We also have a handy guide to cutting your fruit cake online here!
Our hexagonal fruit cakes are baked in a tin half an inch larger than the sizes stated, but will measure a little smaller due to shrinkage on cooling. As shrinkage occurs mainly at the top, the cake should be inverted prior to covering. NB Hexagonal cake tins are measured point to point, but hexagonal cake drums are usually measured flat edge to flat edge.
Made with only the highest quality ingredients to ensure your decorated cake will taste as good as it looks. The fruit is soaked in pure fruit puree and sherry for several days, and then baked in a way which seals in the moisture, so you will not need to feed the cake with extra alcohol prior to decorating - this can make the cake soggy and difficult to cut. Cakes are carefully packaged in sturdy individual boxes to protect them during the journey to you. Order samples online here!
All hexagonal fruit cakes are baked to a target depth of 2.5. Deeper cakes can be baked to special order please email or call for prices.
Shelf life of 18 months from baking. Cakes will normally have matured for a few months before delivery, but will usually still have several months shelf life remaining.

Not sure when to order? Our delivery service is fast, but it's wise to allow extra time just in case. Ideally, place your order a week before you need to use the goods - even though most 'Express' orders arrive within just 1 or 2 working days! Our cakes have a five week shelf life and won't suffer if they arrive a few days before you plan to start decorating. If you have a particular day you'd prefer delivery, use the 'comment' box at checkout to let us know. Bear in mind we can't 100% guarantee delivery on a specific day so please try to allow a few days as a delivery window.
