About us

Wonderful cake makes people happy. It’s as simple as that!

What’s all this, then?

Our cakes are a statement of what you can achieve when you throw out the preservatives and the artificial flavouring. When you gather a kitchen full of trouble-makers who don’t pull their punches when it comes to freshness and wonderful flavour – not to mention a shedload of imagination!


Top-notch recipes. Fresh ingredients. Expertly combined. That's what we’re all about.


The world of cake is going to change, and we’re the people who will change it.


We are Ellie Warburtons.

A fresh start for cakes

We’re here to champion all things in life that are good – family, friends, honest ingredients…and, of course, cake!

And, by our reckoning, cake isn’t something to be tucked away in a cupboard for a rainy day – it’s something to look forward to, to savour and celebrate – alone, or with loved ones. So, we’re making a stand.

Everything we make is led by the simple principle of freshness. That’s why you’ll only find fresh ingredients in our cakes – there are no artificial preservatives in sight, meaning our cakes should be eaten within two days of taking them home/your cake delivery arriving. We even use our own Ellie Warburtons coffee beans in our Espresso Brownies!

And because we use the freshest ingredients, our cakes not only taste marvellous, but they’ll also make you feel good. Really good.

The result? See for yourself.

Bolton, born and raised

Our creations are lovingly brought to life in our family-run bakery. We're incredibly proud of our roots, and we’re as passionate about baking as the day we first fired up our oven in 1876. Read all about our story below!
