What a gorgeous find! Was recommended this little place when attempting to find a Tardis cake for father-in-law's birthday. Went into the shop which is set up wonderfully, with plenty of cakes on display. We arranged what we wanted down to the last detail and were given a good price and fantastic service; they even delivered in time for the Doctor Who themed party. Everyone was impressed and the birthday boy loved it! He took it home whole but said it was yummy!! Will definitely be heading back for future occasions.

Exceptionally good cakes

We have used Harrops for the past 24 years, starting with our wedding cake and many many childrens birthday cakes. We wouldn't go anywhere else.
We've found them very helpful with the designs.
The cakes look good and are extremely light and tasty.

Absolutely Amazing Cakes!

We ordered our daughter's christening cake from Harrop's. It was designed exactly as we wanted it, they even managed to make the little girl on top of the cake look similar to our daughter even down to the dress she was wearing. We absolutely loved it and didn't want to cut it up it was that beautiful!
When we eventually gave in, it was extremely yummy!

We would recommend them to everyone, their creative flair is fantastic! They can do anything! (I think) :D
