Fuss free & fabulous wedding cakes!

Alice Wragg
Once upon a time we did offer wedding cakes but Dad (whose job it was to deliver and set up said cakes at the wedding venues) was always a nervous wreck with the pressure of driving and assembling such precious cargo. With the help of Jess and Felicity we have convinced him to offer wedding cakes by post...as soon as he knew he wouldn’t be the designated delivery driver he was on board!

Recipe : Wheat Free Rich Fruit Cake

Jessica White
Perfect for chilly autumn afternoons this is one of our oldest and most popular cakes, this version is wheat free, which makes it a little more crumbly when sliced than our wheat version, having said that, it tastes every bit as good. It takes some commitment - you need to start it two days before you want to bake it and let it rest for at least 24hours before eating! It will absolutely be worth it.
