Mum's Cakes

Mum's Cakes

  • Not forgetting the talk of the town, Mum’s Cakes!…

    Mum’s cakes were originally made by Mum, but now, we’re so busy, we have a whole team committed to making them, every day! All our cakes are made in our own kitchens – no junk, no additives – just good old fashioned naughtiness!
    Way back when we started Stray’s we used a local cake supplier to provide home-made cakes. In came Mum (MD Jane Oldfield) and said ‘ I could make a better chocolate cake than that” and naturally I replied “go on then!”

    The rest is history – what started out as a few cakes made from her kitchens actually at her home, became our deluxe pastry kitchens upstairs in No.20 Middlegate, with three staff making all the cakes, sausage rolls, scones etc every day…

    To see the full mouth-watering range, just take a walk to our cake display-chiller by the counter when you’re next in, but here are a few of our favourites…

    SPONGE CAKES… Lemon Drizzle // Chocolate Sponge Cake // Coffee & Walnut Gateaux // Toblerone Cake (Chocolate sponge cake covered with melted Toblerone ™) // Victoria Sandwich // Carrot Cake
    FANCY CAKES… Chocolate-cookie cheesecake, Fresh Cream Cheesecakes including: Caribbean (coconut & pineapple), Chocolate Orange, Lemon & Raisin // Lemon Meringue // Pavlova – made with seasonal fruits...
