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.

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.

Recipe : Lemon Polenta Cake

Jessica White
Perfect For Summer Gatherings - Polenta flour gives cakes a wonderful yellow colour with a pleasing grainy texture and has the added bonus of being suitable for those with an intolerance to wheat flour. Fresh lemon juice and zest act as a nice counterpoint to the dense, buttery flavour of this cake.
