Marnie Searchwell Cakes

Delicious cakes, luscious preserves ...

I bake everything myself, to order, in my own kitchen. I make preserves in small batches, using seasonal fruit and vegetables, organic and locally grown if possible. I use only the finest ingredients, organic wherever possible, in my cakes; like the dark organic chocolate and Fairtrade cocoa in my brownies and chocolate cakes, and organic, unrefined cane sugar.

For my Christmas Cakes and Iced Wedding Cakes, I use Lübecker organic marzipan. It's lightly sweetened, made with 52% organic almonds. That's a higher almond to sugar ratio than any other marzipan you can buy – simply the best marzipan in the world.

I don’t use artificial additives or flavours; just good, wholesome ingredients. So I hope you’ll try one of my cakes and taste the difference for yourself! And I can cater for most food allergies: if you have any other dietary requirements, do let me know.

How it all started ...

For years, my husband struggled with so-called 'IBS'. Finally, we worked out that when he cut wheat and gluten out of his diet, his symptoms improved dramatically. Since then, I’ve worked hard on ways of creating delicious cakes we can all enjoy. I’ve developed my own special blend of gluten-free flours, and I’m very happy with. All my cakes are made with wheat-free, gluten-free ingredients. They have a fine texture and are light and delicate in the mouth; in fact, I think they taste a whole lot better than cakes made with wheat.

Delivery & postage

Many of my cakes, and all my preserves, can be posted to addresses in the UK (delivered by Royal Mail Signed For or Special Delivery, or Parcel Force) or abroad. And I can arrange delivery by hand in London (£5.00 – £40.00 depending on location). Or you can collect your order from me in SW9, by arrangement. Please call me so we can discuss what you need.

Looking after the environment

I'm committed to greening the planet, reducing emissions, and reducing plastic use by:

- using organic, locally-grown ingredients wherever possible
- using plastic-free cakeboards and cake boxes
- not wrapping my fruit cakes in clingfilm (using silicone baking paper & foil instead)
- not packaging my Xmas Cakes in plastic (I use bright tissue paper instead)
- using recyclable cardboard cartons when sending cakes by post
- and using compostable, plant-based packing pellets
- delivering cakes by hand, bicycle or public transport, wherever possible
- putting food waste from cake-making in my compost or food waste bin

All cakes freshly baked to your specification, so do give me a call so we can talk about what you need.
