    How do I store the cakes?

    To store our cakes, simply pop them on a shelf or in a cupboard – you don’t need to refrigerate. Keep them in their wrappers until you need to use them. If you decide to unwrap them, wrap in cling-film and store in a tin or Tupperware container. The only thing to make sure of is that there are no really drastic changes in temperature (e.g from freezing to really warm).

    Can I feed (alcohol) the fruit cake myself

    Yes, if you want a more ‘boozy’ cake you can ‘feed’ it yourself. This is how we’d suggest doing it.

    Method 1:

    1. Prick small holes into the top of the cake using a toothpick or thin skewer. Make sure the holes run deep into the cake but don’t go all the way through.

    2. Spoon brandy or rum over the cake, allowing it to run down the holes and soak into the middle of the cake.

    3. Repeat this process every week until you’ve added the amount of alcohol you prefer. Don’t overdo it or your cake will be overpowered by too much booze. Don’t feed the cake more alcohol than it can absorb or you will ruin the texture of the cake.

    What kind of alcohol to use

    We’d recommend any spirit over 30% alcohol content is suitable so it really depends on taste. Traditionally rum or brandy is used, but Cointreau, whiskey or sherry are all good alternatives. Remember to buy the best quality bottle you can afford.

    Our favourite is an amber rum, it adds a more delicate, smoky flavour than the darker variety and tends not to over-power the flavour of the cake. A 15-year-old Dzama rum is a great choice (but not in everyone’s budget!)

    Using either method, the key is to give yourself plenty of time before eating. A fruitcake will need 6 weeks to start to mature, allowing the fruits to ripen and release more flavours. Adding all the booze at once will just saturate the cake and leave it soggy and the flavours won’t develop, so be patient, add little bits at a time and you’ll end up with a beautifully rich fruit cake!

    Do the cakes contain nuts?

    Our Fruit cakes contain almond essence.

    Our sponge cakes do not contain nuts unless stated otherwise. Please see individual product descriptions.

    Please be aware: all cakes are produced in a factory which handles nuts.

    How are the cakes packaged and delivered?

    The cakes are individually wrapped in a cellophane wrap. They are sent in strong boxes and delivered by fully tracked courier.
