The Orchard Fruitcake is the base for all of my celebration cakes. It is a rich traditional fruitcake made with 50% dried fruit plus home grown cherries, apples, pears, walnut, hazelnuts and almonds from the orchard, all soaked in Brandy & Sherry for several days before being Aga baked in my 5* rated home kitchen and hand decorated for your special occasion.
Postage is available to anywhere in the UK for a fixed charge of £4. (cakes only - I do not post preserves).
We aim to keep a stock of Orchard Fruitcakes baked at all times but they will be iced, and decorated to order and must set firmly before posting so please allow at least 2 weeks from order to delivery. If needed in a hurry please contact me before ordering to check current availability. Cakes can be personalised with a name or short message and sent directly to the recipient with a gift card if you wish, just message me the details.
A couple of things you need to know:
The prices reflect that I am a home cook, not a professional cake decorator. You are buying a 'home made' cake. I do not promise perfect icing but I do guarantee that the cakes will taste delicious! (I can recommend an amazing local cake artist if you are looking for something extra special and have a larger budget).
Fruit cakes are by their nature quite solid and we take every care to wrap them securely. However no delivery company will accept responsibility for damage to 'perishable' items (even with 12 month shelf life !). Therefore I regret that cakes can only be sent at the buyer's risk. Damage is rare and in any case only likely to be minor damage to the icing - if this occurs please contact me and I will advise how best to repair it.
