We are Proudly NOT Amazon

We are proudly NOT Amazon!

We are NOT Amazon

Amazon is an amazing company able to support small and large businesses, accessing goods from around the world, and ship them to you via all modes of transport, from freight liners ( that can get through the Suez canal!) to air freight, vans, and even robotic deliveries. During this past year, this has been a godsend to many people housebound and needing to feel connected to the world.

As a company, we support UK professional independent bakers,

and we are asking consumers to do the same

 Support UK businesses. 

Whilst we purchase more and more from abroad, our taxes will be paying for more customs officers -whilst our high street stores are closing down!

Shopping local can be done from the comfort of your own home! Take a look at how below!

 Our 'plastic ' consumption has already gone through the roof with testing kits supplied by 'China' - do we not have UK manufacturers available to create these?

Our throwaway items have increased as face masks are discarded, often found abandoned as they have fallen out of pockets! 

We need to support UK businesses now more than ever.

Unfortunately, an independent UK business can not guarantee next-day delivery- we are reliant on a delivery network from Royal Mail which mainly gets the items there on time.

As a company, we do have postal teams whose reliance is on the Royal Mail. 
We also have over 600 independent bakers who deliver by hand.
Delivering by hand doesn't mean same day- our bakers bake to order- freshly made ( not sitting on a shelf!).
They decorate to your specifications, they remove additives and preservatives where possible,
Delivering by hand using their cars ( one baker delivers on her bike),
Often only delivering around a 5-mile radius- thus reducing carbon emissions too.

 

So, NO, WE ARE NOT AMAZON.....We are a small family-run business supporting 100's other small family-run businesses

- who cares about clients- reputations and quality. So the delivery is NOT today but it will be worth the wait!

Here's how you can shop-LOCAL from the comfort of your home- knowing you are supporting Local UK independent businesses

1) Go to www.mumsbakecakes.co.uk

2) Input postcode of where you want the gift delivered

3) Your choices of either delivered by hand or posted will be shown to you ( Even posted is created by a UK baker)

4) Choose your item, make it personal (if required), write the message you would like on the card

5) Choose your date and complete full delivery details and payment completed

6) Order is sent to the baker, who will review the details, and nearer the date will begin to create and deliver your tasty treats. Items delivered with a message card and ingredients and allergy information too.

 Do you have an event due for a celebration cake, know someone moving house where some welcome cupcakes might be enjoyed by them, a New baby due with a Gender Reveal, or a Christening cake being planned. Not forgetting Father's day in June, and a great time to Thank teachers this year for their continued support! Cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, macarons, afternoon teas.....the list is endless!

Take a look and treat someone to a tasty treat knowing that you have also supported a local business.

Everyone enjoys a 'bit of cake' a thoughtful gift that is sent with love- lovingly created and enjoyed with Love!
