FRUIT CAKE: Originally called ‘plum cake’ its origins in England date back to the 16th century. Richly flavoured, it is made with a mix of dried vine fruits (sultanas, currants and raisins), candied or glace fruits (typically cherries, orange and lemon peel), flour, eggs, butter and brown sugar. In England it’s popular all year round as a cake to eat with ‘afternoon tea’. It is also traditionally served at weddings and at Christmas, usually with a coating of marzipan and icing. Buckingham cake is the proper old-fashioned recipe with no artificial colours or flavours.
READY TO EAT: Each cake is handmade, placed in a paper liner and baked in its own tin. It is then vacuum-sealed, capturing all its flavour, aroma and freshness. The cake remains deliciously soft, moist and springy, fresh as the day it was baked. Ready to be enjoyed anywhere in the world.
LONG SHELF-LIFE: The elegant tin not only provides a long shelf life, it also gives strong protection during shipping, storage and final delivery whatever the climatic conditions encountered on its journey. The beautiful labels are available in different languages. Each tin comes with a re-sealable plastic lid, so that after the tin has been opened it can be re-sealed by pushing the plastic lid back on, giving a ready-made cake tin. This will keep the cake fresh for up to 14 days after opening.
