About Dottie about Cake

Lunch buffet catering, traditional afternoon teas and Vintage crockery hire

We are a social enterprise encouraging and supporting people back to work. We also employ those who are fundraising for World Challenge projects and community projects which benefit others less fortunate than ourselves.

We offer a full lunch buffet service or a traditional afternoon tea service with a choice of finger sandwiches which include smoked salmon and cream cheese, organic ham and wholegrain mustard, egg and cress, vintage cheddar with homemade pickle and many others tasty options. Our fabulous bakers make the very best Victoria Sandwich with homemade strawberry jam, a lovely coffee and walnut cake with coffee frosting, a delicious lemon drizzle, fabulous scones with clotted cream and jam and much, much more. We cater for gluten free, wheat free and vegan guests also.

We can serve afternoon tea in our vintage tent, the venue of your choice or at your home. Our range of fine bone china is the best quality and the prettiest available and even better, your can return it to us to wash for you afterwards!

Our staff offer a 'best in class' service and as our customers tell us, we always over deliver on our promise.

We hope you will support our little venture. You will not be disappointed.

Great food, great planning, great advise

Helena was our caterer for our wedding. Nothing phased her in the slightest! We had a lot of dietary requirements to cope with (gluten, dairy, diabetic, veggie, children) and she handled all of them without appearing to twitch! Helena was always there when we needed her to answer a quick question and from her first tasting to the day itself she was a total hit; people absolutely loved her food! I could not recommend her more.

Thank you Kim. We loved working with you to plan your special day and you looked awesome. It was the most challenging of dietary menus but together we did it and the whole day was amazing.... Wishing you both every happiness. Helena

Just excellent from start to finish!

Helena was brilliant to deal with from the get-go. She was flexible with menus and had excellent suggestions throughout.
On the day she took control and worked flat out to get our venue ready then served up fantastic food. Our guests couldn’t believe the tasty treats that kept coming, we got so many compliments about the food. I simply can’t recommend Dottie About Cake enough, I now just wish I had another celebration coming p to use her again!

Great service!

Helena from Dottie about Cakes was fantastic, very communicative in the run-up to the event, very organised and she provided an excellent service on the day. The guests at our baby shower were all very impressed by the vintage tea set-up and the cakes went down especially well! I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
