Burns Night 2022

Finish off the celebrations with a delicious cake

Burns Night is celebrated across Scotland on the 25th of January, to remember the life and works of Robert Burns. People gather together at dinners, events, and parties, and have the traditional meal of haggis, neeps, and tatties.

Robert (or Rabbie) Burns, is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, but he is celebrated across the world, and he is the best know poet of those who have written in the Scottish language, but he did so in a way to make his work accessible to audiences beyond Scotland.

Burns Night was originally celebrated in July and the celebrations started in 1801, 5 years after his death, but it was moved to the 25th of January to celebrate his life on his birthday instead. And as it is now celebrated on his birthday it seems fitting that the evening ends with a delicious cake.

We have a great range of cakes that would be perfect to enjoy on Burns Night, and we deliver our cakes across Scotland, so no matter where your Burns Night celebrations are taking place you can enjoy a scrumptious cake with your loved ones. Here are a few of the cakes we have available:
