ABOUT SWEET FOX
Hi! I'm Reni and I created the Sweet Fox Cakery!
I went vegan in early 2018 and after a short period of "facing the cold hard truth" depression,
I realised I can make changes for the world I want to live in.
In 2019 I've set up Sweet Fox Cakery in my home with the intention to help my fellow vegans
have the best birthday cakes as well as raising money for vegan charities.
My cakes are fun, always fresh 100% vegan and truly delicious.
The inspiration for them came from the things I like,
and I've created a repertiore of cakes everyone can choose from.
There are references from spooky movies, rock & roll or the drag scene.
The name and the logo (which I draw myself and I'm very proud of thank you)
was inspired by my foxy faced corgi, Wendy.
Craftmenship is the most important thing for me as a professional cake baker,
and I'm looking forward what the future will bring for my tiny cake shop.
My goal is to prove vegan cakes are awsome and there is absolutely no need to
exploit animals and our planet for a dessert.
Every time you choose a vegan cake, you save chickens and cows from exploitation.
You choose to save water, land and food.
You choose peace, freedom and life.
Is everything you do vegan?
Yes, always and forever!
Is this a registered business?
My kitchen is registered with the council and have a 5 star hygiene rating. I'm also a professionally trained pastry chef since 2014 and have my own food safety and hygiene level 2 certificate.
Do you have a shop front?
It might be in the cards for the future. For now it's order and collect from my home.
Do you offer delivery?
I can't drive (I know it's lame) nor do I have a car. If you can't collect or arrange a courier, I might be able to arrange something for a fee but it's super last resort.
Can you post things?
It's local collection only. I'm a control freak and it kills me I can't take responsibilty for postal services.
Do you do novelty/fondant covered/shaped cakes?
The main thing about my cakes is the flavour and that it looks appetizing. If you're looking for a fondant covered cake shaped like a firetruck this is not your cakery soz. Not to worry, I can make themed cakes within my own style!
Can you work from references?
If you send me reference photos I can definitely use them as inspiration but I will put my own spin on it. I don't copy cakes as it's not only disrespectful to the original creator but I also like to think you come to me because you like my work and style.
Are you doing wedding cakes?
Please look for more info at "wedding" menu. I only book couples for the same year though, not years ahead sorry.
Are you doing small bakes like brownies, cookies etc.?
Have a look at my small bakes selection at "bakes" menu.
Do you do markets?
Only in my area of course. Keep an eye out on my socials for upcoming events.
Can you put non vegan chocolates/decoration on cakes if I supply them?
You can do whatever you want with your cake once it's in your hands, but just so you know, the vegan gods will not be happy with you.
How far in advance do I need to order a cake?
Please give me as much notice as you can, celebration cake slots are usualy taken 1-2 week ahead, weekends are especially busy. Whenever you know you'll need a cake it's best to let me know immediately to avoid disappointment.
Can you accept last minute orders?
It's worth to ask you might be lucky but no promises! Same day cakes are not available. If you ask for giant cookie, brownie stack or cupcakes, it is more likely I can run to your rescue.
How long does your cakes keep?
My cakes generally keep good for 4 days on room temperature, granted it's covered and away from direct sunlight. Cakes with fresh fruit decoration should be collected on the same day it's eaten, but if it's only decoration you can pick them off and then they'll keep longer. My cakes should not be kept in the fridge as it dries them out.
Can I freeze your cakes?
Yes you can, I bake everything fresh to give you this option. Wrap up your leftovers well and you can enjoy them within 3 months.
Can you do sugar free?
My goal is to make undetectably good vegan cakes, if it's also sugar free, people will blame the unique texture/taste on the fact it's vegan and it can put people off of them. Not fair.
Can you do gluten free?
I can use gluten free ingredients and avoid cross contamination to the best of my ability, but please note that I do have and use gluten in my kitchen.
Can you do soya free?
I can use oat milk instead of soya milk, it will have a different texture though so I would't advise this option if there are no allergies.
Can you do nut free?
I can make sure I don't put nuts into the cakes and avoid cross contamination to the best of my ability, but please note that I do have and use all kinds of nuts in my kitchen.
