Treats for Friends

Delicious goodies to send to fabulous friends

Our friends are usually some of the only people that really know you, so when it’s their birthday, or you just want to spoil them you really want to make it special for them. They are normally the ones that are with you through thick and thin, so you want to let them know you appreciate all they do and all the times they are there for you. That’s why you’ll want to get them a special gift, a gift that they will appreciate and that will show them you care.

We would obviously like to suggest a delicious cake! Cake is a great option as a gift, you don’t really need an excuse for cake, it doesn’t have to be for a special event, it could just be for an afternoon treat. So, you don’t even need a reason to send your bestie a tasty treat.

Here are some of our favourite cakes that your friends are sure to love:

Rainbow Cake - Our colourful new rainbow cake is made up of four layers of light and fluffy vanilla sponge with three layers of deliciously sweet vanilla buttercream sandwiched between. Vanilla buttercream also covers the entire cake and it is then coated very generously in a cloud of white chocolate flakes. This rainbow cake is perfect for a friend, and it’s sure to put a smile on their face.

Victoria Sponge - A Victoria sponge cake with a light fluffy vanilla sponge, raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream. Free range eggs, flour and natural vanilla flavouring creates our award-winning light and fluffy Victoria Sponge. The buttercream is made from English butter and natural vanilla flavouring which is complemented perfectly with quality raspberry jam. And quite frankly, who doesn’t love a Victoria Sponge?

Chocolate Cake - Luxurious and rich chocolate, flour, and free range eggs create a moist and indulgent Sponge. English butter and chocolate create the ultimate chocolate buttercream and milk chocolate flakes decorate the top. A chocaholics dream!

Gluten Free Apple Crumble – Crumble lovers rejoice! Real apple pieces, juicy sultanas, cinnamon, gluten free flour mix and free range eggs make a wonderfully light and tasty sponge. Real butter and natural vanilla flavouring create a luscious buttercream with crumble on top.

Vegan Chocolate Caramel Fudge Cake - Our Vegan Chocolate Caramel Fudge Cake has a deliciously moist chocolate sponge which is sandwiched together with lashings of caramel flavoured buttercream and chunks of vegan vanilla fudge. On top you will find more caramel buttercream finished off with more chunks of delicious salted caramel fudge and a sprinkling of cocoa nibs. Fudge, caramel and chocolate are a match made in heaven!

If your friend loves a sweet treat but is more of a fan of brownies than cake, you can order some of our delicious brownies to send in the post to them! You can see the delicious brownie options on offer below:

Triple Chocolate Brownies – Our classic Triple Chocolate Brownie is gloriously gooey in the middle with melted triple chocolate chunks running throughout. It is encased with a crunchy top and decorated with a triple chocolate drizzle. Pure. Chocolate. Heaven.

Raspberry & White Chocolate Brownies – Our luxurious White Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies are the perfect blend of gooey rich chocolate, sharp raspberries, and sweet white chocolate. Raspberry pieces and white chocolate chunks run through the middle, and on the top is a pretty raspberry and white chocolate drizzle with a sprinkling of delicious raspberry pieces. Yum.
