Black Velvet Cake

Dive into the rich allure of our Black Velvet Cake. Infused with premium Colombian dark chocolate and complemented by the velvety Mena Dhu Stout from St Austell Brewery, this cake topped with malted cream cheese icing, a dusting of cocoa powder and organic cacao nibs.

Lemon Polenta & Pistachio Cake

Experience the zesty charm of our Lemon Polenta & Pistachio Cake. Fresh lemons and vibrant pistachios blend seamlessly, creating a visual and gustatory masterpiece. It's as delightful to the eyes as it is to the palate.

Orange, Almond & Pecan Cake

Savour the harmonious blend of orange, almond, and pecan in this exquisite cake. Each flavour is meticulously balanced, ensuring a taste sensation that's both refreshing and memorable.

Raspberry & White Chocolate Frangipane Cake

Inspired by French finesse, our Raspberry & White Chocolate Frangipane Cake is a delightful fusion of cultures. Drawing from the French Friand, we've given it a British twist, minus the traditional shortcrust base. With a tantalising mix of gooey and spongy textures, the melding of melted white chocolate and almond cream (Frangipane) makes it irresistibly moist.

Coffee & Walnut Cake

Revisit a timeless favourite with our Coffee & Walnut Cake. Infused with a select single-origin coffee from Little’s Coffee Co, this cake pairs beautifully with its almond sponge and caramelised walnuts, offering a modern twist on a beloved classic.


At The Exploding Bakery we prioritise the use of premium, ethically-sourced ingredients in all our cakes, ensuring not only a delightful taste but also a positive impact on the environment.
