The Berkshire Bakesmith is pleased to be able to offer a range of flavours to choose from for your cake. This menu contains the most frequently requested flavours, but if you have a flavour you would like that is not listed, please do ask as I am constantly working on new recipes and adding to my menu. If your cake is more than one tier, you may choose a different flavour for each tier in your cake. Please see my Cupcakes page for a separate menu for my most popular cupcake flavours.
