Welcome to Paradise Cakes’ online shop, where you will find the finest luxury Christmas Cakes and a unique selection of small batch preserves.
Luxury Christmas Cakes
Handmade with the best selection of quality dried fruit and nuts available, butter, flour, spices, brandy, and free-range eggs.
The fruit is soaked in brandy, in small batches for two weeks or more to allowing the rich flavours to really develop. Then the fruit is warmed and the finest spices are added. All our Christmas Cakes are mixed by hand and slowly baked in a well- lined tin with care and a fair amount of love!
Once cooked our cakes are taken straight from the oven and the top of each cake is drenched in more brandy, wrapped in tinfoil and pure cotton cloth and left for a full twenty-four hours to cool.
The cakes are then carefully hand wrapped, sealed and placed in a cool storage area for a minimum of three months to fully mature.
Baking is our passion, we believe in using only the finest ingredients and the best traditional methods to produce Christmas Cakes and Christmas Puddings which are the unsurpassed in texture and flavour. The type of home baking as loved and remembered from our childhoods.
Our Christmas cakes come in a range of sizes and beautifully present in a wooden box, not only making them perfect for your Christmas dinner or party but also ideal gifts for family, friends or clients.
Unique Small Batch Preserves
Crafted with the same passion as our cakes. We use only our own and locally sourced produce. Each batch is made to a tried and true recipe. Often batches only produce 6 jars at a time, giving them a clarity of taste and colour that cannot be achieved with mass production.
All our relishes and chutneys are left to mature for at least a month before release to our customers.
Our Preserves are available individually or in smaller jars as part of one of our gift box selections.
We believe in using only the finest ingredients and the best traditional methods to produce our Christmas Cakes, Christmas Puddings and selection of Preserves. They are the unsurpassed in texture and flavour. The type of home baking and preserving as loved and remembered from our childhoods.
