    I used to get lardy cake from your bakery when I was a kid then we moved to Essex 38 years ago and have never been able to get it since. I even tried making it myself which was nice but no where near as good and then I found you delivered and it definitely didn’t disappoint it still tastes amazing and bought back so many memories so thank you will definitely be ordering again soon

    It was just as I remember 70 years ago when my parents bought from the baker’s van once a week, absolutely delicious. It was very well packaged as well.

    It was delicious. The cellophane wrapping had split on one corner and some of the stickiness had leaked, no big problem.

    Quite disappointing! I’m old enough to remember real lardy cakes! Even heated up a piece of your lardy cake was not as sticky as of old. Unfortunately I had to buy 3 from you but won’t bother again.
