Exploding Bakery: The Cake Revolution Is Here

If you’re a connoisseur of seriously great cakes, we’re positive you’ve already heard about Exploding Bakery, and if you haven’t – let us introduce you. 

The Exploding Bakery was founded by Tom & Oli, old school friends who decided to start a tiny bakery and cafe in Exeter. The plan was to bake cakes and serve coffee that complemented them. Exploding Bakery have been carefully crafting their delicious delights since 2011. Their aim? A cake revolution. They want to banish mass produced, flabby, margarine laden, additive riddled cakes and replace them with what cakes should be, a monument to flavour. Their method? Ethical ingredients, carefully sourced to create real, flavoursome, melt in your mouth cakes. 

Exploding Bakery has an unrivalled appetite for change and their determination to transform how treats are experienced has truly paid off. They now supply cafes and delis throughout the UK, sell their sumptuous cakes online, offer a letterbox brownie service and have their very own cafe. This retail and wholesale cake company is bringing big flavours to the table, with all natural ingredients to boot. 

Exploding Bakery possesses an impressive list of trusted suppliers, after all you get out what you put in. Their chocolate can be traced right back to the root with Casa Luker Chocolate, they work with the Casa Luker Farm in Colombia where the finest beans are sourced and turned into splendid single origin chocolate. Trewithen Dairy are their Westcountry butter makers of choice, a family run business with years and years of experience and heaps of environmental projects on the go. Littlepod Real Vanilla a sustainable and award-winning supplier of….you guessed it Vanilla! Their eggs are supplied by the multi-award winning free-range egg producer St Ewe Eggs, who have been farming in Cornwall for over 40 years. 

Their ethical stance on the ingredients they use is evident in the truly tasty treats they concoct. We’re big fans of the Blood Orange Brownie, a perfect affair between Chocolate and Blood Orange that bursts with flavour. One bite and you’ll discover tangy and juicy blood orange jelly pieces with lashings of dark chocolate and seriously rich brownie, smothered in crunchy tempered chocolate. What’s more, it’s Gluten free, Vegan and made with ethically sourced ingredients. 

Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, we should probably tell you where you can find them. You can find Exploding Bakery’s mouthwatering morsels at one of our very own Honeycomb Houses – The George

Why not pay them a visit and get your taste buds popping. Proper cake with proper ingredients, what’s not to love?
