Our service is about making it easy to deliver happiness direct to someone’s door.
The Gift of Cake is a family business based in the South West of England. Cakes are in our genes. Our founder’s mum made cakes at home and had cake delivered locally and her mum ran a village tea room and made all her own cakes. Cake has made us the people we are. We live and breathe cake.
So in 2015 we began to think about cake delivery and 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 invested time, money and hard work to provide a great solution.
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.
Beautifully gift wrapped
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 luxury gift card, enclosed in a gold envelope.
Everything is carefully placed in a specially designed presentation box,
and delivered to the door by express courier.
