Gourmet cakes for everyone to gorge on
No afternoon tea is complete without a selection of luxury cakes. From classic fruit to decadent chocolate, our gourmet cakes turn every catch up over a cuppa into a special occasion.
Whether you’re looking for a luxury cake or two to show your greatest friends how much you care, or want to stock up on classic bakes for an everyday treat at home, there’s a cake in the Cartwright & Butler range for you. Made to our tried and tested family recipe, in classic and contemporary flavours, our range of lovingly made and beautifully packaged cakes taste as good as they look!
When to buy a luxury cake?
If you ask us, cake should be enjoyed at every given opportunity! Celebrations mean they are imperative… but as we say, there’s nothing better than sitting on the sofa, sharing a slice of luxury cake with your beloved friends and family. That’s where our dreamy tea and cake hampers come in handy; you can order one for when your long-distance pals are visiting for the weekend. Or, stock up for when your nearest and dearest chums pop over one evening for a cuppa!
For those times when your mum has fixed your TV, or your dad has babysat the kids, we’ve got cake-filled gifts to say “thanks”. Our hampers for parents are pretty special because you can send the top two people in your life spongey, savoury treats to nibble on, to their heart’s content! There might be other dynamic duos in your life who you want to show your gratitude to, and what could be finer than getting luxury cakes delivered to their home? Well, our hampers for couples are designed to put a smile on their face, by introducing them to great-tasting goodies that they can scoff away all evening!
For special occasions
Of course, there are celebratory days that are basically designed with cake in mind… For instance, if someone’s big day is coming up, you know the drill. Because let’s face it – what is a birthday without a cake to mark the occasion? And our birthday hampers are brimming with fluffy delights for your favourite people to savour. Nothing quite says “Happy Birthday” like a bundle of cake-filled items for them to tuck into!
Then there are our indulgent wedding hampers, which bring joy to the newlyweds in your life. They may have had luxury cake on their special day, but at least they can enjoy the ones you send all to themselves…
Different flavours to dive into
What’s great about our luxury cake range is that it’s so extensive; you can choose from a whole range of flavours from your favourite fluffy (and sticky) desserts! But which ones are available to tickle your fancy?
Our range of luxury cake flavours
For a decadent twist on a classic combination, try our delicious Date and Walnut Loaf Cake. We combine rich, sweet dates with crunchy walnuts and swirl them through a moist butter sponge for a teatime treat that’s a cut above the rest.
Or, maybe you’re partial to a slice of chocolate cake with your mid-morning cuppa? In which case, choose the Luxury Chocolate Loaf Cake - packed with chocolate chunks and smothered with melted chocolate and sweet caramel pieces. Served in a cute pastel tin, this indulgent luxury cake is the perfect partner to our rich Café York Blend Coffee!
Try something a little different…
For a rich, sweet edition that’s part loaf cake, part fruit cake, try our Apricot and Fig flavour. Made with 40% sultanas and just a hint of spice, this elegant sponge is topped with sticky, sweet apricots and figs. And it goes down a treat with a steaming hot cup of our flavoursome whole leaf Afternoon Tea – yum!
Want a gourmet cake to wow your host? Treat them to our signature Jewel Round Cake - our ultimate fruit cake recipe, topped with glazed almonds, pecans and oh-so-sweet, jewelled cherries. Presented in an elegant, pastel presentation tin with a window so you can see what’s inside, this classic gourmet cake is a real showstopper. And if you don’t have the time or skill to make your own Christmas cake, this luxury cake is the perfect convenient alternative. That’s why our Christmas food hampers are so popular; they provide decadent sweet delights without the hassle of baking them!
Designed with you in mind
All of our cakes come perfectly packaged in reusable tins, making them ideal presents for the sweet lover in your life. Carefully baked with extra butter for a luxurious texture and expertly decorated with delicious ingredients, our luxury cakes are sure to be the star of any tea table.
And if your partner, or one of your closest companions has a real sweet tooth beyond just cake, our chocolate hampers are sure to hit the spot. Offering rich, chocolatey items and cake tins, they will be elated when a box filled with goodies arrives at their door! We really do have something to suit everyone’s palate.
