Botham's Simnel Cakes have been made since Victorian times to the same recipe. Our rich fruit cake mixture with distinctive spices, enriched with a layer of marzipan before baking is topped with a nest of toasted almond paste with a floral motif. (No iced message)

Please allow us 3 days to make your cake.
Note the Best Before date for Simnel cakes is approximately 2 weeks, so bear this in mind for your delivery date.
