We don’t do 100% sugar free cakes, we use honey instead of sugar in certain cakes and can use coconut sugar or maple. If you’d like to discuss using specific ingredients please do get in touch, we’re more than happy to see if we can help.

WHAT DO YOU SUBSTITUTE SUGAR WITH IN THE REFINED SUGAR FREE CAKES?

Honey. We love honey!

DO YOUR CAKES CONTAIN NUTS?

Yes. We use ground almonds in almost all of our baking. The kitchen is very nut heavy and unfortunately we can’t offer a safe nut free option.

CAN YOU ADD WRITING ON THE CAKES?

Course! Some of the cakes it’s not possible due to the consistency of the topping but most cakes we can. We recommend less is more with the writing so it’s not over crowded.

WHAT IS A MINI LOAF?

Our mini loaves are our version of a cupcake! They are the same weight and size but just in a little rectangle and we love them. They’ve got our signature dollop on top and they’re a great little cake for sharing too.
