Welcome to Rays News section

Mother’s Day is nearly here, and if you’re still looking for something great to treat your Mum with this Sunday, why not pop in to our bakery and see what takes your fancy? We have a huge selection of delicious baked goods that could be that perfect Mother’s Day Gift, from individual treats like pastries and cupcakes to celebration cakes that the whole family can enjoy!

Mother’s Day Cakes

Perfect for a diet-conscious mum, our cupcakes are an ideal treat, beautifully decorated every morning by our bakers and lovingly arranged for our customers. For those who’d rather make a little more of an event out of the day, we also have a full range of celebration cakes available, and the Mother’s Day range this year includes sandwiches, fruit sponge and Belgian chocolate – so there’s something for everyone! Whether your mum’s a staunch cake traditionalist or a serious sweet tooth, we’ve got the celebration cake to make her smile this Mother’s Day.

Our celebration cakes and personalised cakes are even available gift-wrapped, with a present box and ribbon to make sure that your cake is perfectly presented, looks amazing, and makes the best entrance it possibly can!

If you’d like to personalise your cake with a message, we’ll be happy to do this for you, and we find it can add that little special touch to a celebration cake to really make it personal. Whether you want your message to be short and sweet, heart-warming or hilarious, we can help you tell that special person just how much they mean to you.

Traditional Mother’s Day Simnel Cakes

As well as all the cakes and baked treats which we usually sell, we go the extra mile at Mother’s Day and around Easter to make traditional Simnel Cakes – something which very few bakeries will still do. Despite so few bakeries still making them, the Simnel cake has been a Mother’s Day tradition in the UK and Ireland since at least Medieval times, and for good reason – it’s delicious!

The traditional Simnel cakes that we make here at Ray’s Bakery for Mother’s Day are light, sweet fruit cakes that are made with two layers of marzipan or almond paste – one in the middle, one on top for decoration. Traditionally decorated with twelve marzipan balls, these tasty cakes will keep for longer than a sponge cake and are a perfect Mother’s Day treat – especially if you won’t see Mum until after the weekend or have to make the purchase a few days early!

Afternoon Tea

Of course, if you can’t decide what to get for your Mum before the weekend, why not let her choose for herself? Simply take her into either of our bakeries to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the coffee shop, set up especially for the occasion. Afternoon tea includes our sandwiches and scones, all made fresh in-store, as well as samples of our Mother’s Day cakes. If you find one you fall in love with, why stick to just a sample? You can pick up the full thing in the bakery while you’re there, or order a slice from the coffee shop!

Celebration Cakes

If you’re getting the family together this Mother’s Day, our party cakes are ideal for the occasion. Made with love every day at Ray’s Bakery, these cakes are great for all the family and available in a range of styles and decorations – just ask what we have in stock or call us to place an order ahead of time! Our celebration cakes can be personalised for your mum this Mother’s Day with a message of your choosing, so let her know how much she really means this year! Our celebration cakes are available in a choice of flavours and styles, including Belgian chocolate, fruit sponge and sandwich cakes – so the whole family can find something they love.
