History of Cariad Cakes and Customer Comments
The strong ethical stance of the company and the desire to use only the best locally sourced ingredients ensures that all cakes are 100% vegetarian friendly, with an ever increasing range that already includes Rich Lemon & Sultana Fruit Cake, Zingy Lemon Madeira and Chocolate Heaven Cake.
The company has since won several international Great Taste awards presented by the Guild of Fine Food Retailers. Our Shropshire Hills Cake, White Star Fruit Cake and Shropshire Raspberry & Honey Cake are all major award winners. The 2006 Silver Award winner was our Gluten & Wheat free Orchard Plum & Ginger cake.
Our Raisin Ginger Cake won the 2 star Gold Award in the 2009 Great Taste Awards, while our Gluten Free Chocolate Fruit Cake was Shortlisted for the 2011 Free From Awards.
Now with exclusive dairy free, sugar free and gluten/wheat free lines, Cariad Cakes are available from fine food stores and delicatessens across the country. They can also be found at selected food festivals and by mail order direct from this website.
