We’ve recently ventured into the world of brownies too! Our wonderful brownies are the perfect combination of gooey, fudgy, and slightly chewy. Simply put they are a delight to eat in taste and texture. We decided to create a range of round brownies, rather than the traditional square ones, as it means everyone gets a chance to have the best bit of the brownie. They are perfect treats to enjoy at Christmas time with loved ones, we have a few flavours to choose from, and are developing new brownies flavours to add soon as well! Just like our cakes you can have these delivered anywhere in the UK, whether they’re for yourself or if you’re sending them to a loved one this year, you can have them delivered straight to the door. And the best bit is that all of our brownies are gluten free!

This year we’ve created some fantastic decorating kits to create a wonderful activity for the whole family to get involved in this year! There are three decorating kits to choose from, including a Chocolate Cake with a Christmas Cake Decorating Kit, 4 Baby Sponges with a Christmas Decorating kit, and a Chocolate Brownie with a Christmas Decorating Kit! These will make a great activity for a day during the festive break. And to give you a helping hand, we’ve even created a set of handy video tutorials – you can either follow and create our designs or use your creativity and come up with your own designs! Either way, we’re confident you’ll have fun with these yummy and fun cakes and brownies.
