Yes, cake means happiness. And we want to make it easy to send happiness direct to someone’s door.
It’s our mission.
The Gift of Cake is a family business based in the South West of England. Cakes are in our genes. Our founder’s mum ran a cake business from home, and her mum opened a tea room and made all her own cakes. Cake has made us the people we are.
So in 2015 we began to think about how great it would be if you could order a handmade cake and get it delivered to someone – an alternative to flowers (sadly inedible) or chocolates (predictable). We wanted to provide a service for ordering a cake online, including a personalised message and sending it by post as a lovely gift for the lucky recipient. But it’s not that easy to send a cake through the post. So we’ve worked hard on the problem. And we think we’ve cracked it.
Handmade. From scratch. To traditional recipes.
All the nation’s favourite cakes are included in our range, so there’s something here for everyone. Each cake is handmade and is 6.5 inch (165mm) diameter which serves 8 – 10 slices. Everything is made from scratch: we don’t use any commercial pre-made mixes. We’re very picky about ingredients and won’t compromise on quality, which means: locally sourced free-range eggs; British milk, cream and sugar; proper old-fashioned butter; and finest Belgian chocolate. And no added preservatives, artificial colours or artificial flavours.
See our Blog about buying ingredients locally and supporting British farming.
Our cakes and tins are exclusive to us. We don’t supply them to any retailers or online sellers. They’re too good for that. You’ll only find them on our website.
And nowhere else.
Like so many things in life, first impressions are everything.
Each cake is packed in a beautiful bespoke cake tin – a very useful addition to any kitchen long after the cake has gone. The tin is pure white with subtle embossing
– a nice keepsake.
Each tin is gift-wrapped beautifully and finished with gold ribbon.
Your personalised message is specially printed on a gift card.
Everything is carefully placed in a specially designed presentation box,
and posted first class.
Give someone special a delicious surprise!
