2015 – 2016
The Cakewhole team has grown to eight, the decking has been built, the awning is up and now you can enjoy a cup of Owen’s coffee with your cake in the ambience of our little corner of Wilton Street.
Quality not quantity, to put it simply. We use only the best ingredients, sourced as far as we can from local suppliers. We’re a small bakery, not a cake factory, and this is reflected in the care and attention to detail that goes into each and every cake or traybake that leaves the premises.
We also like to do our bit for the environment – from the re-usable plastic boxes we supply our wholesale cakes in, to the compostable cups from which you drink your coffee, everything we do is designed to keep our impact to a minimum.
. . . and last (but not least), we try very hard to be an ethical employer. Of course, happy staff make better cakes, but there’s more to it than that. We want a happy and supportive working environment for all of us which is why, whenever you visit Cakewhole, you’ll be greeted with a smile and leave with one on your face.
