Frequently Asked Questions (1)

I know this is all a lot to take in but don’t fret my friend, I am here to help. 

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions I get. If you still have any queries then please don’t hesitate to drop me a line here.

The concept originally derived from loving army wives who wanted to send their husbands’ cakes while stationed at their posts overseas.

Transport was a problem due to the delicate nature of cake. However, they were able to overcome this obstacle thanks to the mighty jar.

I took this concept and refined it and have been creating Cakes in jars since 2014.

Absolutely.

One of my many missions and ethos’ are to cater to anyone who wants to enjoy a cake, regardless of what obstacles they may face.

If there is nothing on the current menu that that interests you, please contact me, I’d be delighted to help.

No. You can order one jar if you like.

The cakes don’t have any alcohol in them. However, I may sometimes do a cheeky rum cake around Christmas time! If any of the seasonal cakes contain alcohol then it will be clearly displayed in the list of ‘ingredients’ with an additional warning on the product page.

The more notice, the better.

Typically I need at least 2 weeks notice for large or bespoke orders. I would class a large order as anything over 12 jars however if you are having a last minute crisis please still give me a shout and I will do my best to help you.

Any orders placed before 11am will be freshly baked and dispatched the next working day.

Orders placed after 11am on a working day will not be baked until the following working day and then dispatched on the subsequent working day.

In the interest of keeping your cakes fresh, shipping operates strictly on a Next Day service. 

That means that any order placed after 11am on a Thursday will not be dispatched until the following Monday.

If you have any questions or would like to pay for a Saturday delivery instead, please get in contact with me to arrange this. 

In July 2018 I decided to make a change and go 100% Plant based. It was a decision that wasn’t taken lightly but has been received with overwhelming support.

Yes.

All of the recipes have been extensively tested on and approved by non vegans and vegans alike.
Most can’t even tell the difference 😉

The jars are best stored in the fridge for up to 10 days or can be frozen for up to 1 month. They are pretty tasty eaten either chilled or room temperature, if you dont like them cold then just take them out of the fridge 2 hours before consumption.

Our couriers currently deliver to mainland UK only. 

You should still accept the delivery from the courier. Upon inspection of the goods, if there is anything you are unhappy with please inform me as soon as possible so that I can resolve it for you. 

Any pictures of the damage would also be very helpful!
