  • Ingredients & Allergens

    All our bakes contain a 'not so secret' ingredient - vegetables! We sneak them in when nobody is looking and you can barely tell they're there. They make each cake super moist and yummy but do let us know if you have any allergies or intolerances and we can be sure to use a tummy friendly veggie to supercharge your bake.



    Ingredients & allergen information: Contains cereals containing gluten – wheat, milk, peanut, fish, eggs and soya. May also contain traces of other nuts as these products are handled in our kitchen. Not suitable for vegetarians.

  • Disposing of compostable packaging

    When you're all done with your pots, you can dispose of them in one of four ways:

    ✔️ If you're lucky enough to have a council food waste collection, your compostable pots can be thrown away with your food scraps! No need to even wash them out!
    ✔️ Save them and return them to us and we'll compost them for you! Return 4 clean pots to us and we'll give you a treat for FREE next time you order! Yup, that's right, we will then arrange for them to be industrially composted to become fertiliser.
    ✔️ Put them in your general waste bin - this might seem disheartening but if you live in Leeds, we live in a ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL city! Leeds City Council incinerates all general waste that is not able to be recycled. If our compostable pots are incinerated, energy is produced which feeds back to the National Grid, and our incinerator releases zero emissions! Yay! If your local council doesn't incinerate your waste, don't fret, our compostable pots are still better for the environment than plastic. In landfill, studies have shown that our compostable packaging does not give off nasty greenhouse gases as it decomposes. Win, win!

    ❌ Used pots should not be placed in standard recycling bins which collect paper, plastics and metals, as those materials go to a different type of sorting facility. Another reason is that food waste harms the machines at your recycling plant - the same applies to any recycling you do at home!

    ❌ Please don't put your packaging your garden waste compost bin that's collected by the council. Although your garden waste is composted, again, this waste goes to a different type of composting facility and cannot be processed.
