Rich fruit cakes

Sweet, fruity and with just a hint of spice, our rich fruit cakes are a real show stopper. Whether you prefer fruity loaf cakes or ones that are piled high with cherries, there's a luxury fruit cake in the Cartwright & Butler range for you. All of our cakes come beautifully packed, so they're perfect for a gift - even if it’s just a treat for yourself!


Flavoursome fruit cakes for all to enjoy

Making a fruit cake from scratch can be challenging. And let’s face it, finding the perfect fruit cake recipe, soaking the fruit, chopping nuts and baking until the sponge is just right takes real skill (and patience).

So, if you prefer your fruit cakes without the fuss, why not choose one from the Cartwright & Butler range, that you can just pass off as your own? Your lucky dinner guests, or chosen giftee, can indulge in tea and cake to their heart’s content without you having to stress about making it!

Why buy fruit cakes?

Fruit cakes are such a delicious delight to savour, and you’ll likely be reading this with a fruit cake connoisseur in mind. But what’s even better about these treats? Well, they have a longer shelf life than the average cake, so you can enjoy the luxury for longer. Although, we're pretty sure yours won't last that long anyway…

What occasions can I buy rich fruit cakes for?

As much as it’s a tradition to eat fruit cakes for Christmas, they are a treat that you (and your besties) can enjoy all year round. These gorgeous-tasting gifts don’t need to be ignored until the festive season approaches because they are tasty enough to enjoy whatever the occasion. Trust us.

But of course, Christmas is a great excuse to buy your chums one of these fantastic delights, alongside some juicy mince pies and sticky Christmas puddings, which make excellent stocking fillers. We have a whole range of Christmas cakes, puddings and pies for you to revel in, just pick their (or your) favourite and wait for it to arrive.

Not to mention, fruit cakes make the perfect thank you gift for the loved one hosting Christmas celebrations this year. Or as an anytime gift just to show how much you care!

Spoil your friends and family for every occasion

Perhaps purchase one of our fruit cakes for a friend who’s a little unwell and could do with a little pick-me-up? Nothing says get well soon like this treat does, especially if they’re a big fan of juicy cakes packed with flavour.

Or, if your mum goes wild for a luxury fruit cake, send one her way when Mother’s Day arrives. She’ll be absolutely thrilled, that’s for sure.

Choose from our wide selection of fruit cakes

There are so many fruit cakes to buy from our superb selection because we know that creating different versions and flavours is needed to get the most out of these goodies.

If you require a gift that makes a real impression, choose our Cherry and Almond Decorated Round Cake, served up in a cute pastel presentation tin. This beauty is made to our family recipe, with extra butter to ensure the sponge doesn’t dry out. Plus, this super rich fruit cake is packed with juicy sultanas and cherries, alongside decadent almonds to provide just the right amount of spice.

Topped with jewelled whole cherries and whole and sliced almonds, we’ve purposely placed a window in the tin. Why? Well, it’s simple – because then your recipient can see the glorious treat inside when you present it to them.

For a nutty fruit cake fanatic…

For the sweet tooth that prefers a rich fruit cake with added crunch, choose a fruit and nut edition, like our signature Jewel Round Cake. This is our signature, rich, moist fruit cake recipe which features even more almonds; it’s topped with glazed almonds, pecans and super sweet cherries. Served up in our window-topped presentation tin, this one's almost too beautiful to cut into. But we know you'll be glad when you do...

Want a lighter texture of fruit cake that's perfect with a cup of frothy coffee? Our Date and Walnut Loaf Cake is ideal if a cake packed with raisins isn't your thing. Packed with butter for a moist, moreish texture, this old-school fruit cake is bursting with sweet, chewy dates and chunks of crisp walnut.

Finished with walnut halves, even more fruit and a sumptuously-sticky glaze, this amazing loaf cake is the perfect way to dial up the luxury on a mid-week tea break!

Create a bespoke hamper filled with fruit cakes

If you want to buy fruit cakes in abundance for your closest companions, you can do just that with our Build Your Own Hamper service. This is ideal if you’re hoping to truly spoil your loved ones who go crazy for a rich fruit cake and don’t want to just enjoy one at a time!

To utilise this brilliant option, simply choose what box you’d like the goodies to arrive in – from a classic wicker basket to a robust metal box, and hand-select the many moist delights in our range. Then, we’ll send it straight to their door for a superior surprise that they’ll never forget!
