    I got one from Waitrose for my wife and her sister for their 70th Birthday, beautifully presented and great flavour. Good value too

    Homemade is best...............but Morrisons do some wonderful 'off the shelf' ones, a lot cheaper then M&S! Wink

    Homemade all the way, ready made cakes look too uniform, and a bit dull if im honest, they lack character and charm, their too perfect and pristine, homemade cakes always look more inviting, and its not like their hard to make, though decorating them can be challenging, but you dont need a degree in bakery now to make gorgeous cakes, you can buy ready make icing in many colours which can be rolled out and applied over sponges, and icing pens do a great job with intricate icing patterns, but the best thing about baking cakes at home? The aroma Grin

    We don't buy many cakes on account of my wife's sensitivity to wheat, but we usually buy either Tesco or M&S for small scale, or Costco do some very good ones as well.

    Or talk to your local cake shop/bakery.
    This is a custom made one from Aulds that my wife had made last year for my retirement.

    She had to make the icing sheep but the bakery made the rest.

    In my case that would be either Waitrose or Sainsburys.

    Today I've just made and baked a Bara Brith..........the house is filled with the aroma of home made baking............it took less time to bake than jumping in the car to visit the stores (I live in a Rural village with no shops of any kind so need a vehicle) the cake will keep for weeks in an air tight container and it tastes so good spread with real butter and Bramble jelly...............I'm off now to bake some bread...........so much healthier than the plastic bread in the supermarkets...........tis making me hungry thinking about it..........GrinGrinGrin

    Have a good day...........SmileSmileSmileSmile

    I bake my own bread quite regularly. I have a bread machine, which is great for making the dough but I've found that nothing quite matches taking that dough and giving it another thumping then baking it in the oven. Has a much better texture than letting the bread machine do the whole job.
