Handmade boozy Christmas Cakes

Order your cake(s) any time from now for collection shortly before Christmas. Small cakes made in baked bean tins cost £4.50. They’re decorated in the same way as the larger cake in the photo and they are supplied in a paper bag – not a baked bean tin! Larger cakes are sold by weight and cost £15 per kg. You can order a cake topped with your choice of fruit and nuts or a plain (larger) cake to decorate yourself. There are no nuts in the cake itself but this is not a nut-free kitchen. Just let me know if you need to see all ingredients before ordering. Bring your own cake tin or I can supply a cardboard gift box for £1.

Harry’s Cake - for lovers of nuts and stem ginger

£16.00 per kg. Whole cakes cost between £7.50 and £9.00.  Half-cakes are also available.  A great alternative to a traditional Christmas cake but very popular all year round.

Apricot energy bars with walnuts and local raw honey

£2.50 per pack of 2 bars. Pic shows 2 bars, each cut into 2 pieces.

Wow your guests with my walnut pie

A whole pie (10 – 12 inch diameter*) costs £24.00 or you can choose any number of slices for £3.00 each. 1 slice is 1/8 of a pie and is easily enough for two portions.  If you order more than one slice I will supply them in one piece so that you can choose yourself where to cut. Whole pies or slices will keep for at least a month in your fridge and can be frozen for up to 6 months.  *10″ diameter pies are slightly deeper than 12″ dia.  Both sizes weigh the same.  Sorry but it isn’t possible to choose which diameter unless you are ordering a whole pie.

Bara Brith – £4.00

SAVOURIES

Savoury Brioche Tart with tomatoes and basil or with broccoli and stilton. Whole rectangular tart – £13 (approx 30 x 20 x 2.5 cm).  Half rectangular tart £7. Quarter rectangular tart £3.60.  (No round tarts this week.) One quarter is sufficient for two portions. Will keep in your fridge until Thursday evening and can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Veggie Parsnip and Cashew Nut Roast

Veggie parsnip and cashew nut roast. £6 each or £11 for 2.   Veggie parsnip and cashew nut roast – cooked and ready to eat cold or to re-heat – each roast serves 2 main portions.  Will keep in your fridge until Wednesday evening or can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Vegan and gluten-free hazelnut and mushroom roast. Details as above.
