Eat Outside Day 2021

Enjoy the weather and eat outside on the 31st of August!

The great outdoors has been a god send to everyone recently, and if the weather is fine, we all like to take the opportunity to go out for a wander and explore nature. Whether you decide to just walk around your local area or venture a bit further afield, spending time in the open air is a great way to relax.

When going out on a day trip we need to stop of somewhere and refuel, we think the best way to do this is with a picnic. They’re so convenient, you can take them wherever you go, and you can eat them almost anywhere. You don’t even need to go far to enjoy a picnic, many people enjoy them in their back garden or balconies at home. All you need to do is get some tasty treats, some drinks, and grab something to sit on!

We have lots of delightful cakes and brownies that go perfectly with other picnic picky bits.

Baby Sponge Cakes

Our Baby Sponge Cakes are cute baby versions of our whole sponge cakes - these mini cakes are the perfect size to have with a cuppa. We have over 15 flavours to choose from including gluten free and some limited-edition flavours too. Available in packs of 4, 8, 16, 40, 80 or 120. Our packs of 4 and 8 are gift wrapped for gifting, and our larger packs of 16, 40, 80 and 120 are for parties and arrive unwrapped in boxes.

Whole Cakes

Why not treat yourself and your loved ones to a whole cake to enjoy while you’re having a fabulous meal outside. We have a range of flavours to choose from – here are a few of our wonderful options:

Lemon Drizzle Cake – The sponge is infused with natural lemon oil and made with free range eggs to create a light and fluffy citrus cake. Natural lemon oil is also used in the buttercream and white chocolate is drizzled on top.

Bakewell Cake – Natural almond oil and free range eggs make this yummy and light sponge cake. A smattering of raspberry jam in the middle and an almond oil infused buttercream. Crunchy flaked almonds sit on top.

Coffee Cake – The sponge is made with quality coffee and free range eggs creating a velvety and light coffee flavoured cake. Coffee is also whipped in to the buttercream and delicious chocolate coffee beans sit on top. A coffee lovers dream...

Rocky Road Cake – 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.

These are just four of our wonderful flavours, there are so many to choose from, we have a flavour that everyone will love.
