I’ve ordered 3 cakes from Bluebells for 3 seperate birthdays and they have all been presented so beautifully. The first and third cake was banana and salted caramel which was a unique flavour and would probably suit people who don’t like an overly sweet cake in this case my mum. The second was a chocolate cake which was great for chocolate lovers. However the icing (outer layer) of the cakes was too sweet for my liking and I usually like sweet things. The ordering process is easy as you can sit down in store and talk to the staff about it or do it all online and calculate prices if you’re on a budget.
I had ordered a cake online for my friends birthday for pickup at their Takapuna store (Which costed $10 extra for pickup which I found a bit odd). The store was a bit understaffed and I didn’t get served for about 15 minutes, even though there was only one person in front of me. Despite this the cake looked lovely and tasted nice.
Friendly fast service and I really liked how even though they’re a small place they’ve got the cute outdoor area out the back which gets really nice sun!! Normal sort of price point for a cake/desert place and my friend and I both really enjoyed what we got! My only reason why I wouldn’t give it 5/5 is because even though they’re allergy friendly and have the information at the ready for you, they stack items that have nuts on them next to items that don’t which for some with deathly allergies like me defeats the purpose, meaning even thought it doesn’t have nuts in it, it’s actually touching something that does so you can’t have it regardless. While this issue doesn’t affect everyone I do think it’s important to try and keep some of the same allergens next to each other within reason ?
