Topping it off nicely

I’m always being asked if I sell cake toppers, candles and accessories to go with my cakes, and until now, I’ve had to say no. It took me ages to research really good ones, ones that I liked, a selection of styles and colours, and for a range of different occasions, but I reckon it was worth it. Ta da!

Love is in the air

It’s that time of year again! We kind of missed it last year as the shop had only just opened and we were still living out of boxes and suitcases after the big move from Manchester, so we didn’t get much time to put anything lovey dovey together.

Now we are well and truly settled in Sheffield, we thought it would be nice to join in a bit more this year. There were grand plans of mock ups and awesome photography in shafts of cool early Spring light…but January has been a whirlwind of consultations and emails and designing. And now it’s February (pinch, punch n’all that!) and our grand plans haven’t materialised. SO! We we thought it would be nice instead to show you our plans and sketches. A little behind the scenes peek at what will be available from next week.

Designing Valentines Day treats at Torte Cakes

Our sketches are our blueprints of what we will be offering, and we’ve put together a small range of classic treats with a modern look, and with a bit of something for everyone. Hopefully you’ll like them as much as we do! (more…)

Well, hello there!

Happy New Year! How are you? Us? We’re pretty good thanks, if we do say so ourselves. We’ve had a fairly major facelift and we’re pretty excited about it. Our website is our online shop window and we wanted it to look more like, well, our actual shop window. So now it does!

It’s taken a lot of hard work and we’ve temporarily broken our eyes in the process, but now there’s so much more information for you here, right at your fingertips. We have always been very proud of our menu, we’ve put a lot of thought into it and we think we offer great versions of the classics, plus some exciting gourmet combinations that you might not have tried before. We’ve created a whole section for our menu now, showing all the different flavours we offer for all the different things we make. We hope it’ll get your tummy rumbling. (more…)
