Royal Mail shame on you!

Posted on


Unfortunately due to the new pricing structure for pacels now being offered by Royal Mail, I have taken the decision to stop offering a postal service for my cakes.

To be totally honest I have never enjoyed the additional stress and expense of posting my cakes.  Due to the sheer size and weight of a boxed cake the costs were starting to outweigh the value of the items being posted, this cost also varied dramatically depending on which Post Office I used thus making it virtually impossible to calculate the costs.  

I have also found that irrelevant of how many arrows stating this way up and fragile stickers and labels I decorate the boxes with, they still arrive at their destination looking like they have been used as a prop in a high speed cop car chase in a bad hollywood movie (never understood why there are always big stacks of empty boxes on the streets of america.......).


Royal Mail are pricing themselves out of the market, forcing everyone to use the alternatives, such as my-hermes, i-post, collect+ etc.  I am reluctant to try any of these just yet as I have heard mixed reviews for all of them, I guess they are having a few teething issues but I am loathed to risk it until these kinks have been ironed out.

So in the meantime, you can still buy via my online shop, however, you must be prepared to be able to either collect from me in Banbury, Oxfordshire or arrange collection from one of the many events that I am participating in this year.  Check out the Events page to see where I will be and I hope to see you there.
