First and foremost, The Cake Nest is an online bakery, producing all the products ourselves. From the start, our main objective was to deliver handmade sponge cake through the letterbox anywhere in the UK. Then we developed our idea from cake slice to cake cards to letterbox gifts. Now you will find us locked away in the kitchen experimenting with new flavours and exciting new subscription boxes to tantalise your tastebuds.
It all started at The Cake Nest when we noticed family and friends gathering in our kitchen whenever we got the mixing bowl out.
In those days few cakes made it as far as being decorated, let alone out of the kitchen. Often all we had to show for a day’s baking were a few sweet crumbs licked from sticky fingers.
The more we baked, the more people seemed to love our cakes and we got so much pleasure from it we began to play… From zingy lemon sponge to bittersweet espresso cake and who knows how many versions of the classic carrot cake (it had to be perfect!).
Hence, we measured, mixed and baked our hearts out. Consequently, the more we made, the more people wanted them and so The Cake Nest was born.
Together, we spread our wings, taking the idea to social media where Abi could be found testing new ideas on Twitter. Getting our first review on Chocoblog From here we grew our cake subscription and our invention of the cake card, a slice of cake in a card delivered through your letterbox. All from home, around the children.
