It is with great sadness that Jennifer Lofthouse who runs "Darrowby Cakes" has passed away. We do not wish to take down the website, so that we can look back at Jen's amazing work. But please note, that we will no longer be taking on any orders.


We do often get asked questions from our customers, and here are a selection of the main ones that you might have before you order. If you have any other question for us just get in touch and we’ll be happy to send you all the information you need.

What flavour can the cake come in?

We can make the cake in either vanilla sponge, chocolate sponge, lemon sponge or traditional fruit cake, but we are happy to make a cake with whatever flavour you would like.

How much do the cakes cost?

The pricing really depends on what design you would like and the complexity of the cake. Cupcakes start from £15 for 12 for a basic topper, and a 6” single tier decorated cake starts from £40. If you would like a quote for a cake, cupcakes or cakepop’s just get in touch and I’ll be happy to provide you some more detailed pricing.

Do you cater for special dietary needs?

We have developed our own range dairy free cakes, and are happy to cater to your dietary needs, just let us know you’re requirements and we will be able to discuss what we can provide.

Where do you deliver to?

Because of the delicacy of the cakes we can only deliver them within a 10 mile radius of Thirsk, but you can of course collect. If the cake needs to be delivered further afield we can arrange transport but would be an additional cost.
