A Baker’s Blog

200 Degrees Coffee Roasters are a perfect example of the evolution of coffee culture in the UK right now, making them the ideal choice for this month's Barista Recommends, where coffee (hand roasted at 200 Degrees, of course) and cake perfectly combine. 

One a penny, two a penny, hot cross, um, loaf. With Easter fast approaching, have a look at our take on the traditional hot cross bun - with the usual Cakesmiths twist.

As the Great British Bake Off reminds us, it’s all about getting the perfect bake, and when it comes to cake, no-one knows this better than Nathan, our Oven Baking Aficionado.

Cakesmiths are out and about over the next few months. Find out where we'll be - we'd love to see you there. 

Be the first to hear about what’s new with our bakes and cakes. With some behind the scenes tips on flavours and baking too. This month it’s all about Apple and Pecan Roar Bar and Matcha and Strawberry Loaf.

Art, coffee and cake at The Lightbox gallery: a perfect mix and the next best thing to edible art we reckon. 

Cake Inventor?  Yep. That’s a real life, official job here at Cakesmiths and it is, quite literally, in the hands of cake creator extraordinaire Mike Smart. 

With Christmas fast approching we would like to make you aware of the ordering and delivery schedule over the holiday period.

Paper Cafe is special, not only for the fine food and skillfully crafted drinks they serve but because it's an everchanging creative space for designers and the community. We asked Imogen a little bit more about her business...

We asked Tina and Joe from the newly opened Spa Town Coffee their coffee and cake pairings of the moment what did they choose?


OK, OK, I know we're not out of September yet but as I've now been asked numerous times what the Christmas Specials Line-up is going to be, I thought I'd broadcast it in a blog post. With Christmas menus to write I understand the thirst for this information. The main focus of inquiry is whether the Christmas Bakewell is returning? I have good news Bakewell fans - the star of last year's line up is back and will be flanked by newbies After Dark and Spiced Amaretti Bark. They're a handsome trio and tasty to match!

Bold punchy Autumnal flavours replace the lighter, fresher Summer offerings and looking out of the window this morning it seems the timing on these couldn't have been better! 


We just love these. For those of you that defrost slices and return the tray to the freezer these reusable freezer bags will keep your cakes in perfect condition. 


We are dead excited to be launching our New Loaf Cake Range later this month.
