All our glorious cakes are handmade on-site daily!
Since opening Selina’s cafe in November 2011, good, home-cooked meals and delicious, home-baked cakes have been our mission. From Vanilla Sponge to Hummingbird, Bakewell to Caramelita, we bake the most delicious cakes in our purpose-built bakery. We also have a few of our own creations on the menu, including Ferrero Rocher, Caramelita and our secret Carrot Cake recipe!
Under Selina’s director Margaret Duff’s direction, her baking team uses only the finest ingredients to achieve the highest quality results. Selina, Margaret’s mother, taught her to bake cakes from a very young age. When we decided to incorporate a cafe at the Calmababy Centre, there was only one name we could choose!
Our cake menu is extensive! Due to our fast turnaround, our cakes do not contain preservatives or additives to maintain freshness and therefore do not sit on the shelf for days. We regularly add new recipes to our extensive menu and bake vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free cakes.
Some of the lovely comments we have received:
“Best cakes in Peterborough!”
“That’s the best piece of carrot cake I have ever tasted… and I’ve eaten it all over the world!”
“The cake is always so fresh.”
“Lots of different types of cake here. I never know which to choose!”
And finally, our favourite quote…
“Cake is happiness! If you know the way of the cake, you know the way of happiness!
