Ethics

I try to be as ethical as possible in life and baking & there’s more info on my ethics page. My packaging is recycled & recyclable and, like the ingredients, mostly made in Britain. Even the cello wraps can be composted with food waste. The only animal product used are my friend Elaine’s very free range eggs from her beloved rescued chickens fed on an organic diet.

Delivery

COVID DELAYS? Most post is arriving on time now. The rest of my current range has a longer shelf life & allows for delays. Some of the cakes in this bake box only have a 4 day freshness window but I have relisted it due to demand. If this (or any other) bake box arrives too late to be enjoyed I am happy to refund. I don’t post this bake box over the weekend. Order by 10am Mon-Thurs & it will almost almost always be dispatched that day, next day latest. Later Thurs, Fri & wkend orders will be posted Monday.

    Hi.
    I received a lovely present from my niece in Australia.
    It came from you, Great, Marvellous, Wonderful !!!!!!
    Thank you, Great present.

    Best regards.

  2. Jessica West

    My flatmate’s mum sent us a box of these. What a great idea! Cakes taste delicious and are really fresh. Will be hinting to my own mother to buy some… (and perhaps vice versa).

  3. Lou (Linda) Pescod (verified owner)

    Thank you very much for your excellent service. The cakes arrived at their destination today and were gladly received. In fact, they were for a bereavement. Today was perfect, as the vicar was coming to tea!
    I shall happily recommend your shop to my friends.
    Kind regards,
    Lou P

  6. Sinéad

    Received one of these lovely boxes as a birthday present this weekend, what a great idea and what a treat! I thought I would be freezing more of them but I seem to be getting through them quite quickly 🙂
    Will definitely be sending to others, thank you

      That’s lovely to hear, thank you.
      I find more cuppas = more slices gone!

    We received these cakes as a prize from a raffle. They were absolutely delicious, full of flavour and moist. Would definitely recommend and use again for gifts.

  8. Alison, Cobham Vets

    Your Ultimate Bake Box was sent to our workplace by a grateful client, and what a lovely surprise it was! It was so beautifully presented (I was shocked that cake could manage to arrive through the post without being damaged!)
    and the cakes were delicious. A brilliant idea, well executed! Congratulations to you for a first class product!

    • L Milligan (verified owner)

      That’s great to hear, thank you. In the beginning it did take a while to match up box size/cake size/recipe/wrapping etc – but I got there in the end & it’s great to spread a bit o daily joy with cake!

    Hi Lou,
    Cakes received with joy & delight!
    Both boys said cakes were really yummy (think they’ve been hoovered down fairly quickly!) Amazing quick service, beautiful presentation and delicious cake, a true delighted customer, thank you.
    I will be using you again!

    Hi Lou,

    Mum arrived home on Thursday to your lovely cakes. She was over the
    moon. Next day she sent a photo of her lunch with one of your cakes. She said it was as yummy as it
    looked and went really well with her iced coffee.

    Will definitely be back in the not too distant future!

    Thanks again for everything, Mum was surprised and delighted with
    your delicious cake box.

    Kind regards,

    Jayne

    My better half received one of these as a birthday gift. As she generous shared them they didn’t last very long at all, but I was just in time to taste the toffee apple cake before it disappeared – very tasty indeed.

  13. Jennie (verified owner)

    Bought as a belated birthday gift for a friend. She was thrilled with the cakes and and loved the way they were packaged and requested that I give a 5 star review, the cakes were reported to be scrumptious and she informs me she now plans on sending similar gifts to her friends!

    • L Milligan (verified owner)

      Thanks Jennie that’s great to hear.

  14. Morag Henderson (verified owner)

    A letterbox box of heaven. These are the tastiest cakes I have had in a while. Great to have a selection of different cakes rather than just one cake, a bit like having afternoon tea delivered to your home. Will definitely be buying more.

    • L Milligan (verified owner)

      Thanks Morag. Afternoon Tea in a box is exactly what I had in mind when I came up with the idea so I’m glad they hit the spot.

  15. L Milligan (verified owner)

    From Jackie-
    I have just finished off the last of the cakes in my luxury box and OMG, I left the best till last! I am assuming your chocolate cake is a secret recipe, if not, it should be, keep it to yourself. The best chocolate cake I have ever had. And that was after making the box last for a week. Amazing selection. I will definitely recommend you to friends. Good luck with the business.

    My daughter in law was delighted with the selection box I ordered for her birthday and it arrived the same day as the cake forks I ordered for her. Such a fantastic idea, and excellent value will be ordering again. Thank you.

      Forks too – a perfect combo!
      Thanks for your lovely feedback,
      Lou.

    These were sent to us as a thank you gift. My daughter has coeliacs and so it was lovely that she could also participate in eating these cakes. Probably the best brownies I have ever tried and a lovely surprise. Gluten free brownies can sometimes be so dry but these were rich and moist. Beautifully presented and so yummy. I would definitely recommend.

  18. Nicola (verified owner)

    I have sent these to a few friends and family over the last year and everyone who has received them has said that they are all absolutely gorgeous! A lovely idea to send to people whatever the occasion! They have always arrived promptly and very fresh, I’m just waiting now for someone to return the compliment and send me some!! (I should mention that I have tasted the cakes first hand when I first came across them at a stall in Rye and heard about the present delivery idea; simply delicious!).

  19. Simon (verified owner)

    I bought these for my niece’s birthday. They were delivered on time in good condition and went down very well by all accounts as she spent her birthday watching movies with friends and family and eating cakes. She phoned me in the evening to say how much they’d appreciated them. Money well spent, as teenagers can be hard to please.

    Hello Lou

    The Ultimate Bake Box arrived on Friday, as promised. The postman knocked on the door to hand over the box rather than push it through the letterbox. The packaging was sturdy, and the cakes arrived undamaged. The unfussy, clean lines of the recyclable packaging was visually appealing. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the design and the arrangement of the cakes in the box.

    The cakes were absolutely gorgeous. Nine slices to share between three was just right. I managed to taste all of them, with the exception of the Chocolate Orange Brownie which mysteriously disappeared rather quickly! My particular favourite has to be the Raspberry and Coconut Jam Sandwich, although they were all delicious. I also enjoyed the delicate flavour of the Lavender Shortbread.

    I very much appreciated the list of ingredients, and the use of as few ingredients as possible. I have a chronic illness which makes me intolerant to a wide range of factors, including smells and certain foodstuffs, and particularly processed items. I am delighted to say that I did not experience any problems with your cakes at all. In fact, they were divine, and I was able to savour the taste.

    I will definitely order from you again, and would not hesitate to recommend your cakes.

    Thank you very much.

    I ordered these cakes as a birthday gift and Lou was very helpful in making sure they arrived on time. I was lucky enough to be able to taste some of the cakes too, and those I tasted were delicious, especially the walnut shortbread and the Kent apple cake. It is such a great idea, it feels like a lot of care has gone into creating each box, and the recipient was delighted! I like the recyclable, simple packaging and also the ethics and values of the company. I would recommend and would order again. Many thanks.

  22. Jennie Allen (verified owner)

    Oh boy! What a treat it was to get this selection as a gift! Each type of cake was really delicious and the packaging was perfect, simple yet sturdy and recyclable. I am really impressed with both the quality of the baking and the whole business approach. Will now be using the service as an alternative to flowers or wine for birthday and other gifts.

  23. Sarah Dulie

    I received one of these cake boxes from my cousin as a pick me up when I was having a tough time. It worked. Made me smile as it’s always nice getting a gift in the post. The cakes are delicious without all the fuss of over the top butter cream that these cakes just don’t need. Thanks Cuz.

  24. Louise

    I was sent these cakes to review and they are amazing. The best cake I have tasted. A fantastic selection, all presented beautifully. Would highly recommend.

  25. Mr Simon Hook

    These are the tastiest cakes I have had in a long time. I received them as a gift and what a great way to get cake, in the post. Great idea for a man as flowers just don’t taste as nice. Thank you.
