We’re gearing up for Easter at the bakery…

With International Women’s Day on the 8th and Mothering Sunday hot on its heels on the 10th, we are celebrating women everywhere – and especially those special women in our female-founded and female-led Fiona Cairns baking team, who have been at the heart of our business for nearly 40 years. So buy a box of our delicious fairy cakes and pick a bunch of now-blooming yellow pom-pom-ed mimosa – a traditional Women’s Day gift – for the special ladies in your life. (Treat yourself too, while you’re at it.)

Sandwiched between Mothering Sunday and Easter, like the buttercream in a wonderfully indulgent cake, comes St Patrick’s Day. So pick up a cake – our Irish friends will find them at Dunnes – to celebrate. Embellishing it at home with green sprinkles is optional, but recommended.

Here at the bakery, we’re gearing up for Easter – the last day of this month – and the ovens are working full-blast to get our delicious cakes to you on time, as are our feisty (if knackered) bakery queens, who’ll decorate them with 50,000 mini Easter eggs this month! Join their sisterhood by starting a new Easter baking tradition: make moreish medieval marzipan marvel Simnel cake. Or, of course, buy one of ours to enjoy at home, from all the usual places.
