Allergies and Dietary Restrictions

Can you make your cakes less sweet, or alter the recipe for various dietary restrictions?

Most of our cakes are made with minimal added sugar (while maintaining flavour). Unfortunately, they are made in large batches and it would not possible to change the sweetness (or recipe) for any single cake. However, we can recommend a selection of cakes you may like, based on your preferences. Just send us an email or give us a call!

Most of our whole cakes are nut-free except: Peach Garden (almond), Mont Blanc (chestnut), Hot Pot (almond) and Celebration Pig (almond). The rest of our whole cakes do not use nuts inside the cake, but may have macaron decorations on top (all our macarons contain almonds). However, we can have the macaron decorations excluded or packed separately.
