Lockdowns aren’t getting any easier, are they? And if it isn’t a lockdown, it’s being restricted by tiers. Is there any end to this madness?! But there’s one thing that no lockdown or tier can stop or cancel and that is the urge, desire, and pure outright NEED for sweet treats, and thankfully, some small independent businesses are offering cake deliveries & collections in Scarborough! Amen.
A lot of independents have chosen to adapt their businesses, I wrote about what a few Scarborough businesses were up to here. In regards to foodie independents, this adapting has allowed them to cater for takeaways and thus stay open and trading during these subsequent lockdowns. Sweet treats/bake boxes have very much become popular as people make orders for pick me ups, birthdays, and other special occasions or an addition to a takeaway brew for their daily exercise.
I thought I’d share, which will also be updated, some of the independent businesses I’ve tried that are offering cake deliveries & collections in Scarborough.
Bloom is run by the amazing Alice. A new edition to the cafe scene in Scarborough from 2019, COVID and subsequent lockdowns haven’t allowed for the easiest of starts. That being said, Alice has, as many have had to, adapted to the situation and been able to keep trading and building her customer base by opening for takeaways as well as free local deliveries of food, drinks, and sweet treats.
You may have seen pictures of Bloom’s treat boxes appear on my social channels before, and will continue too, as not only do they look amazing, they taste amazing too. You are able to order direct from Bloom’s website and there are Vegan and Gluten-Free options available.
Dahlia Bakery, owned by Jayne, first opened in the Summer of 2019. Offering daily homemade sweet and savoury goods, such as sausage rolls, quiches, salads, breakfast goods as well as sweet treats, with a selection of bread being supplied by local artisan baker Solange Bakery.
Their sweet treats are definitely what drew me to visit Dahlia’s and they definitely didn’t disappoint. With everything being made daily, no day is the same, so it’s best to keep an eye on their socials, or just pop in for a surprise. I can definitely recommend the salted caramel shortbread and Rolo Brownie, though have been recommended to try the salads, but that’ll be a whole new post.
Alice is not only the manager of The Stained Glass Centre, a local attraction with an attached cafe. She is also a master cake and sweet treat maker. Supplying the centre cafe and other local businesses with her homemade goods, as well as taking private orders for special occasions.
A new find to me, thanks to a local Instagram follower, Alice’s Killerby Cakes is definitely a cake deliveries & collections in Scarborough business you need to be aware of and I 100% recommend. I’m quite the connoisseur of caramel shortbread, and Alice’s twist, making it a millionaire Cookie Bar is just genius. It’s incredible. And the caramel cornflake cake.. WOW!
The Yew Tree.
Yew Tree is a cafe based in the village of Scalby on the outskirts of Scarborough, which is part of the HQ collection who own The Plough and The Copper Horse. Though unlike its sister sites, The Yew Tree is a cafe serving breakfasts, lunches, light bites and of course, yummy homemade sweet treats.
As with a lot of businesses, The Yew Tree jumped on the ‘takeaway’ allowed aspect of lockdown offering what we all want during these testing times; sweet treats.
Crumb is a homemade sweet treats, cakes and puddings business ran by a lady named Rachael. Though Rachael works for herself, her cakes and treats are so good that she supplies local businesses such as a tearoom in a village on the outskirts and newly opened The Cockpit in Scarborough itself.
Thick chocolate bar themed cookies and individual cheesecakes are just some of what Crumb has to offer. However, it was their Lotus Biscoff Chegg – cheesecake filled chocolate egg, that caught my eye. (I am all about a novelty.) It was as good as it looked, as was the Lotus Biscoff Millionaires slice.
Now, this is a bit of a curveball addition. Holy Cow isn’t a cafe/business that delivers caked goodies, however, you do ‘collect’ as such, goodies from them. They are an Ice Cream Parlour found on the Foreshore of Scarborough, open daily from 12-7 pm. Serving a range of ‘udderly divine’ (their slogan, not mine! But very clever!) dairy and non-daily sweet treats, they really have everything covered, from Ice cream to waffles and doughnuts.
Their build your own is one of their most popular boxed treats and after trying them, I can definitely see why. With a choice of bases, a variety of ice creams, sauces and two toppings, the possibilities are endless and I have no issue returning to try them all!
