Carrot Cake

A definite favourite with customers. This two tier cake is packed with texture and flavour: grated carrots, sultanas, walnuts and a hint of cinnamon……

Vegan Cakes

I have increasingly been asked about vegan cake options over the last year or so, which I guess should come as no surprise with our population turning more towards plant based products and sustaining our world’s resources. So I want to share with you a few of my tried and tested vegan options. A long…

Vegan Chocolate Sponge

Since introducing my vegan chocolate sponge recipe I have found it to be a best seller. To make this deliciously chocolatey cake it uses an oil based recipe. The ingredients are all vegan approved and I have even discovered vegan chocolate buttons to help decorate this cake into the Cakes Simply style. One I made…

Piping!

When I started Cakes Simply, my ethos was to keep it simple!

And then the final touch of glamour on the top could be a shard of chocolate sprayed with edible gold, fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate, a rice paper…

Wedding Cakes

I have to be honest and say that to make my first wedding cake was a huge undertaking! I had sleepless nights and sweaty palms for months leading up to the big day! – BUT….it was all worthwhile. I was lucky enough to be invited to the occasion and was very relieved, having constructed the…

Triple Chocolate Brownies

The most incredible chocolate sensation… Made with plain chocolate with white and milk chocolate chunks distributed through the mix. The shiny crackled top adds to the lustrous look of these delectable naughty squares of delight. You may be able to tell that I love these chocolate brownies. Don’t take my word for it…..try them for…

Cherry and Coconut Sponge.

You can’t beat a fresh slice of sponge cake with your afternoon cup of tea. Rather than the traditional Victoria sponge, this cake offers a slice of tropical indulgence topped with little jewels of sweetness. A deep sponge cake, packed with the tropical flavour and texture of dessicated coconut. The middle is a combination of…
