Handmade Cake Balls

Baking Cakes with Love

From the hills of the Peak District, allow us to introduce ourselves. We hope you’ll find us a breath of fresh air to match our surroundings!

First and foremost, The Cake Nest is an online bakery, producing all the products ourselves. From the start, our main objective was to deliver handmade sponge cake through the letterbox anywhere in the UK. Then we developed our idea from cake slice to cake cards to letterbox gifts. Now you will find us locked away in the kitchen experimenting with new flavours and exciting new subscription boxes to tantalise your tastebuds.

It all started at The Cake Nest when we noticed family and friends gathering in our kitchen whenever we got the mixing bowl out. In those days few cakes made it as far as being decorated, let alone out of the kitchen. Often all we had to show for a day’s baking were a few sweet crumbs licked from sticky fingers.

Award Winning Bakers

Artisan gifts baked up in the Peak District

Today we are an award winning online cake company. However, we remain a family business and a good work life balance for all our team is of the utmost importance to us. We still bake our cakes with love and passion – we just have a bigger, dedicated kitchen to do it from and a small team to help us. It means we can make even more deliciously wicked treats including cake balls, push pops and personalised letterbox cakes. Making cakes that make people happy is our passion. Whose face would you like us to bring a smile to? Send a slice of scrumptious sponge cake today.

    "Brilliant. Fourth time of ordering this. Found it a little confusing as to where the recipients information starts and buyers ends but very good communication from the vendor to sort it out."

Delivery

We operate Monday - Friday and accept express orders until 2pm.

Please note, as we use Royal Mail so cannot deliver on a Sunday

Where can my cake be delivered?

Anywhere the postman can deliver to our cake can go too. We deliver nationwide within the UK including Northern Ireland and the Channel islands with Royal Mail.

How long does delivery take?

Please allow between 2-3 working days from placing your order. Where possible we always try to post on your given date to ensure gifts arrive in good time. As everything is sent First Class with Royal Mail, we cannot specify what exact time it will arrive. We can only post Monday – Friday (excluding bank holidays).

We do offer express Tracked 24 hour delivery where orders are placed before 2pm Monday – Friday (excluding bank holidays) so please make sure you ask for this service if you need it. However, please be aware we are not time travellers, all our products are baked for you in house and so we need notice although we will always try our best to meet tight dates. This is sent Tracked with Royal Mail.

Do I need to be in and sign for my cake?

No, cake slice club, cards, cake truffles and Letterbox Cakes are *standard letterbox sized, and are delivered with Royal Mail just like your normal post. This is down to the discretion of the postman though although they are marked as perishable and should not be returned to the sorting office.

Larger items such as Cup Cakes will need someone to be there to receive them though as they are too big for the letter box. Feel free to tell us a safe place to leave them if you prefer.

If you have any questions about delivery charges then please get in touch.

*standard letterbox size is 38mm x 200mm
