Don't have the time or inclination for baking but love to decorate cakes? We can bake the cake for you from one of our popular flavours so you can concentrate on the decorating!
We've been baking our madeira range of cakes for at least the last 25 years & they are our most often ordered cakes in store. Madeira cakes are a light butter cake which are a bit heavier than a sponge & are great for fondant or soft icings. Our standard cakes are around 6-7cm deep (novelties are less) & just need to be trimmed & turned over for a nice even base for your icing.
Size stated is the tin size, the actual cake comes out slightly smaller, generally the icing will bring it out to size.
Please order a week in advance with a deposit of half for in store orders, online orders are a full payment on booking. Currently this is a pick up only service or we can arrange delivery with our cake courier which would be $15 to most areas of Auckland.
Madeira - a nice buttery mild vanilla flavour (a staff favourite) Chocolate- our most popular flavour pretty much every week. Marble- a marbled mixture of chocolate, madeira & raspberry, nice & bright for kids' cakes. Lemon- a nice light summery flavour. Orange- a light orange flavour. Jaffa- marbled orange & chocolate.
These cakes have a shelf life of around a week & can be picked up any time from Wednesday to Saturday. If you need a cake before then, they freeze really well so they can be picked up the week before, popped in the freezer & removed a few hours before you plan to decorate. Depending on the size of the cake & season they would generally take about 3-5 hours to thaw.
We offer round or square cakes in any of the sizes below as well as the oblongs & novelty shaped cakes. Please let us know if you need a different shape & we may be able to help.
