3D Igloo Christmas Cake

3D Igloo Christmas Cake

Our traditional rich Orchard Fruitcake covered with marzipan and white fondant icing but baked in a nigloo shaped tin and decorated with  a pair of fondant penguins. (Each cake is iced by hand and may vary slightly from the picture).


The cake weighs about 1.2kg will cut into at about 20  slices or 25-30+ 'fingers'. 


Please note, the prices reflect that I am a home cook not a professional cake decorator. I do not promise a perfect finish to the fondant but I do guarantee that the cake will be delicious! 

  • Delivery Xmas 2020

    Cakes will be sealed inside a cellophane bag and wrapped in suitable protective packaging (bubble wrap or similar) inside an outer cardboard box. Most are sent by Royal Mail 2nd class as a small package but some deliveries may be sent by a 48 hour courier. 

    The fruitcakes are solid and usually arrive in perfect condition but please let me know straight away (with a picture if possible) if there is any damage. 

    IMPORTANT NOTE: no delivery company will accept responsibilty for damage to any food items as they are always classed as 'perishable' (even with many months of self life !) so excluded by their tems and conditions. Therefore I regret that cakes are sent at the buyer's own risk. Should any damage to icing occur I would be more than happy to advise how to rectify this so please do get in touch. 

    Plain fruit cakes are usually kept in stock and iced to order ready to be dispatched within 5 working days. Some larger and shaped cakes are baked to order. In ALL cases I recommend ordering at least 14 days before your special event to allow time for baking, marzipanning, icing, setting and delivery. If you need a cake quickly please contact me first and I will advise what can be supplied from stock and arrange special delivery (at cost). Last orders for Christmas delivery by 8th December please, or by 18th December if collecting from Covenham House or Delaynies. 

    The fruit cakes will have a shelf life of between 6-9 months and can be kept in their origianl sealed packaging or in a cake tin or box but it MUST be airtight or the cake will dry out and go stale. Once cut the cake can be kept in an airtight box or tin for several weeks or wrapped tightly in cling film to keep it moist. 

    Regretfully due to the nature of the goods, returns cannot be accepted. 

    You are very welcome to collect from Covenham House at Southery (by arrangement) or from Delaynies at Littleport  (open 7 days a week) to save the postage cost. In either case please pay on collection (cash or card accepted at either collection point).
