Food4Macc Direct Real Cakes Food4Macc Direct is offering delicious handmade real cakes from the Macclesfield Cake Company. The Macclesfield Cake Company is a Macclesfield based home baker producing quality handmade loaf cakes, all of which are made by hand using a bowl and a wooden spoon! We use local Cheshire free range eggs and Cheshire flour alongside English butter and English sugar as core ingredients in all our loaves. We source other ingredients locally where possible to keep our products as local as we can and support other Cheshire producers. The cakes use fresh ingredients and are free from artificial flavours and preservatives, but will last about a week. They also freeze well. If you find a cake that has a “sell by date” 6 or even 12 months out, you just know it must be full of preservatives! These aren’t! Our current range includes the following flavours, and all are baked using 1lb loaf tins:       

Apple and Mango - A moist sponge cake with pieces of apple and mango baked in. Bara Brith - Welsh tea loaf with sultanas, currants, raisins and mixed peel spiced with cinnamon and ginger. Date and Walnut - Sticky date and banana cake topped with walnuts. Chocolate Brownie - Dense chocolate brownie, delicious served warm with ice cream. Banoffee - Banana and toffee combined to give a moist cake. Raspberry and Vanilla - A vanilla Madeira cake with whole raspberries baked into it. Lemon and Lime Coconut Drizzle - A sticky tangy cake with undertones of coconut. Ginger Cake - A moist ginger sponge peppered with pieces of crystallised stem ginger.

We will review the selection on a regular basis and make changes based on your feedback.
