Description

[toggle title=”What’s the shelf-life of this cake?”]Our cakes are freshly baked (unless you request a matured cake, see below for more info), giving you at least 9 months of storage time. As with any traditional fruit cake, the taste and texture will be retained, not diminished, over time.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”What’s depth of the cake and can I request a different depth?”]

Our cakes as a standard depth of 2.5 inches. When covered in marzipan and icing this gives a 3″ tall cake which is the usual for most wedding, christening and christmas cakes. If you require a different depth, please contact us and we will bake this to order.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Is there any alcohol in the cake?”]

We use a light sherry in our fruit cakes. [/toggle]

[toggle title=”Can I feed the cakes (alcohol) myself?”]

Yes, if you’re using our cakes to decorate a Christmas cake for example, we recommend you ‘feed’ the cake with brandy approximately every two weeks to one month, until you’re ready to decorate and eat it.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Can I mature the cake myself?”]

Yes of course. Unless you request otherwise, we’ll send you a perfect, freshly baked cake which you can mature yourself for up to 9 months.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Can I you send me a cake which has already been matured?”]

Yes. We keep a rolling stock of cakes from fresh to 6 months mature. Please specify that you would like a matured cake when you check out and we will do our best to provide one. Please note that availability of mature cake depends on stock so is not always possible.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”What makes the cake so moist and tasty?”]

We use black treacle and dark molasses to ensure the cakes stay moist and don’t lose any of their gorgeous taste or texture if you choose to mature them.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”What gives the cake it’s dark, rich appearance?”]

It’s the black treacle and molasses which give the cakes their luxurious colour and balanced flavour.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Are the cakes suitable for vegetarians?”]

Yes. We do not use gelatine in our cakes.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Are the cakes suitable for vegans?”]

No. We use real butter and free range egg in our cakes.[/toggle]

    I used this as the base for my daughter’s wedding cake (and also got the 10,8 and 6 inch cakes for the other 3 tiers) it saved me so much time and took so much pressure away – thank you nude cakes!!!!!!

  2. Karley Buck

    “Real old fashioned fruit cake” is what my father-in-law said about your cakes and you don’t get much higher praise than that!

  3. Marie

    I hope you don’t mind me pretending I made the cake! they are so fab!!

  4. Mr P Cunningham

    My box was a bit bashed on the side and looked a bit tatty when it arrived. Luckily the cake inside was well packaged with bubble wrap so it was fine but maybe you should think about changing your courier as it looked like they had been playing football with the box!
