We are pleased to announce the launch of our home delivery cake website bakesmiths.com Buy cakes online from our delicious selection of traybakes, brownies, flapjacks and get cakes delivered next day if ordered before 12 noon. Bakesmiths is our retail brand and champions a range of our hero Coffee Shop cakes in a smaller pack size of 8 portions ideal for home use, gifting, and cakes for office parties. The Cakesmiths story so far… A long time ago we started with a coffee shop, so we know from experience the environment, the challenges and the commitment required at every level to succeed in this competitive and challenging market. Playing to our strengths - Me, a weary cocktail bartender, quickly turned coffee obsessive and little sister George, at a loose end after graduating as a microbiologist donned the gloves to pursue a childhood interest in baking.
The business boomed, I’m sure more down to her cakes than my coffee making! Her baking fast gained a large and loyal following and we started to supply other coffee shops in and around Bristol and Bath.
We opened Cakesmiths our Wholesale bakery in 2004 and have steadily built a highly skilled team of bakers & makers upholding Georgina’s techniques and attention to detail that have gained us an enviable reputation as ‘the UK’s leading baker’ of quality innovative cakes to coffee shops across the country.
Wanting again to be ‘in’ the market we serve, we went back to our roots and opened Bakesmiths- a line of sight micro-bakery and coffee shop- in 2016. The coffee world moves so fast it provides unequalled insight as a testbed for new creations, usability, display and trends that we draw on daily.
With the Bakesmiths new range of cakes for home delivery, we hope that ‘the wheel’ is about to turn again by shaking up what seems a fairly ‘bland’ market of brownies by post by injecting some innovation and creative flair! Enjoy! Tom and the team
