FAQ

Allergens

Alcohol / Sulphates
Our fruit cake has the fruit soaked in alcohol before and after cooking.

Nuts
Our fruit cake also does not contain any nuts unless specifically requested. All our ingredients are sourced from a supplier where traces of nuts are present therefore we can not guarantee nut free.

Lactose/Dairy Free
We define dairy free as “free from milk-based ingredients.” This includes casein, whey, lactose, and even milk fat. It does not, however, include eggs..

Egg Free
Please state if you require an egg free cake. This can be achieved on request.

Gluten/Wheat Free
We can make cakes with gluten/wheat free flour.
The self raising G/F flour we use contains rice, Potato, Maize and Buckwheat. The raising agent consists of Sodium Bicarbonate,mono Calcium phosphate and xanthan gum.
The G/F plain flour is the same above without the raising agent.

Soya
We do use soya based spread for our dairy free cakes. We can substitute this with sunflour spread if this is a problem.

NB When oiling our tins we use vegetable oil and not butter.

How much notice is required for a cake?
Ideally we need as much notice as possible, a minimum of 3 months for fruit cake as this needs time to mature.

Decoration of Cakes
We are more than happy to copy a cake that you have seen but due to artistic licence/interpretation the finished product may have some slight differences.

Food hygiene
We have a flying five star rating for our kitchen plus a food hygiene certificate.
