buy cakes online - from our oven to your door
Selling direct to our customers means we can practically bake to order - cakes are often baked and despatched one day and delivered the next, making the process of buying cakes online as quick and easy as possible.
Every morning we download our online orders and give the day’s baking schedule to the kitchen. We then get cracking with the baking; those cakes that need the longest oven time, like rich fruit cakes or ginger cakes, get priority. Our main oven has five separate decks, which means we can bake a variety of products simultaneously. We also have a small convection oven that we use for items that are quicker to bake – brownies, flapjacks and ginger biscuits for example.
As soon as the products are cool, they get wrapped and taken through to the despatch area. Here we pick and pack the orders ready for collection by our courier. Officially, cut off time for orders is 10.00am but in truth we often get telephone orders late in the day and we always try our best if customers really want something to be there the next day. We often distract the courier with a cup of tea and a slice of cake whilst we rapidly pack those last minute orders!
From our bakery they get transported via our local APC Courier depot in Warwick to their hub in Cannock, Staffordshire. Here the parcels are sorted and shipped overnight in large articulated lorries to all parts of the country, ready for delivery by local depots nationwide next morning. From oven to doorstep in 24 hours; buying cakes online has never been easier!
