So, we are going to take you through some great cake options to choose from which are perfect for any boy’s birthday.

Here are just a few of the fantastic options we have available:

Rocky Road Cake – A fun birthday cake for a boy – inspired by rocky road traybakes. Naturally flavoured vanilla sponge and delicious chocolate sponge are swirled together creating an indulgent marbled sponge. English butter and chocolate create a smooth buttercream, with marshmallows and crispy chocolate pearls on top.

Rainbow Cake – If they have a sweet tooth, this cake is for them with a wonderful surprise inside. Made from free range eggs and natural vanilla flavouring to create light and fluffy sponge layers. Natural vanilla is infused into the buttercream and it is then covered in white chocolate shavings. A deliciously sweet cake.

These are just a few of our top picks for boys, there are many more available on our whole cakes page. If they have a dietary requirement, don’t worry, we also have a great range of flavours for our gluten free and vegan cake categories.

If they love chocolate, but they aren’t a keen cake lover, then our brownies could be just the thing you’re looking for! Our brownies are the best balance between gooey, fudgy and chewy brownies, so you won’t be disappointed! They’re also a little different, unlike traditional brownies which are square or rectangle, our brownies are round! This is great are you get the cut them into wedges and everyone gets the best part!

Here are the brownie flavours we currently have available:

Triple Chocolate Brownies - Gloriously gooey in the middle with melted triple chocolate chunks running throughout and a crunchy top decorated with a triple chocolate drizzle.

Raspberry & White Chocolate Brownies - These indulgent chocolate brownies are full of raspberry pieces and white chocolate chunks. They are topped with a raspberry and white chocolate drizzle and raspberry pieces.

We are adding new brownie flavours on a regular basis, so even if these ones don’t tickle your fancy, we’re confident one of our upcoming brownie flavours will. Keep a lookout on our Brownie page for new flavours.
