We have spread our wings, just a little – and opened a teeny tiny cake shop!
You can find our simple, special cakes and tarts (as well as beautiful handmade cordials and granitas) every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at our humble digs in Meeniyan Square, Meeniyan (at the Prom end of Whitelaw Street).
Like our food, our cakes are a celebration of our local South Gippsland seasons, and we only use ingredients that are utterly fresh and of exquisite quality – most are sourced right here on the farm or from friends and fellow producers within a handful of kilometres of us. We go to great effort to make our cakes taste delicious and look beautiful and effortless, like they just tumbled backwards out of a charming hedgerow, and to this end, we use raw nuts and always leave the skins on fruit. Oh and we don’t use icing.
Some of our favourites that you may find on the counter include…
almond and lavender cake
wholegrain buckwheat and blueberry cake
bottled pear, rosemary and almond cake
flourless chocolate, sherry and hazelnut cake
rosemary, buttermilk and sourdough syrup cake
little almond biscuits
loganberry and ground rice cake
flourless lemon and polenta mini cakes
Grandma’s small cakes
We always ensure at least one gluten free option is available, but there are usually more. We can do dairy free as a special order however we do not offer vegan cakes.
All cakes are available by the slice or as a whole cake (just ring or email ahead if you’d like to do this so we can keep one aside for you). We are also very happy (well … overjoyed!) to take orders. Just ring us on 0422 976 540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to chat more about this.
Your purchases will be carefully boxed and wrapped so that you can easily get them home, or you may choose to enjoy your cake on a pretty plate at our window seat or outdoor trestle table. If you are after a really special and beautiful gift, you can buy one of Al’s lovely handmade wooden boxes to put your treats in.
Oh and we even have card (and Apple Pay) facilities at the shop. Pretty fancy!
Thank you so much to everyone for your enthusiasm and support for this little project, here’s hoping we see you in the shop some time!
Tamsin, Al, Martha and Verity (chief shop lady).
