On Mothering Sunday young girls in service were encouraged or allowed to visit their Mothers and would take with them gifts, in particular they may bake a fruit cake called a 'Simnel Cake'.
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 and icing, with a floral motif. (No iced message)
Please allow us plenty of time to make your cake, includes a gift card with your personal message .
