Here at Vallum House Cakes we have been making beautiful cakes for many years now. This dream of ours first started with the support and encouragement of family and friends, especially when Kathleen’s cake ‘flowers in a basket’, which was entered into the Gateshead Spring Flower Show a few years back, won the Best Exhibit in Show Trophy.
We don’t take all the credit for the wonderful and wacky designs, as our customers know, the individual design of the cakes are based on themes and suggestions given to us and are very personal – many of which I am sure you will recognise!! Although some of the popular character cakes may have the same theme we always make sure that no two cakes are identical. We offer a very friendly personal service.
We used to claim to specialise in bespoke wedding cakes but over the last few years we have accepted all of the challenges put before us and we now offer a full celebration cake service. As you will see from our website our cake design themes are classical, traditional, novelty, corporate and a little naughty and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.
We’re also crazy about beautiful cupcakes at affordable prices. We will handcraft the best cupcake you have ever tasted. They’re beautiful too. They're sometimes uncomplicated, sometimes sophisticated and often a little crazy and each style is a reflection of how fresh our cupcakes are.
We spend months locally sourcing the finest quality ingredients for all our cakes. Each delicious fruit cake baked by Eleanor is lovingly ‘fed’ and matured. Each traditional cake and cupcake whether chocolate, vanilla, lemon etc is baked fresh and in small batches to order. We love nothing more than their soft and fluffy “just out the oven” texture.
Here at Vallum House our cakes are not ordinary they’re unique, indulgent, luxurious, chic and above all delicious.
