The business is family run, the directors being Richard and Claire Bufton. Richard read Hotel Management at what is now Gloucestershire University before buying the Hamptons business in 1988. So when you buy Hamptons Sweet Cake you get the dedication of the owners.
In 2019 after 32 years we decided to sell the shop and the hampers to concentrate on our other business, ‘Hamptons Sweet Cakes’, which we had been building up over a number of years. The shop will remain a fine food shop. The new owners moved into the shop early September 2019.
This is going to allow us to put our full attention into our new venture.
How are they made?
The shape of each cake is defined by a wall of sweets such as jelly babies, jelly crocodiles, or other soft sweets, and cocktail sticks mounted onto a polystyrene base. It’s up to you to choose the colour of the base e.g. pink for a girl, blue for a boy, etc., or any other colour you wish. Please see the drop down menu with each cake. Behind the wall of sweets, the void is filled with a variety of other delicious confectionery. After the top is decorated, the whole sweet cake and base is securely shrink-wrapped with strong transparent film.
Who sells them ?
You can buy them from our or web site direct, collect from our unit in Bourton on the Water or buy from a selection of retailers we supply.
