About Us

Cocoa & Whey Cakes is based near the beautiful village of Farnham in Dorset near the borders with Hampshire and Wiltshire. We make beautiful and delicious, bespoke wedding cakes and event cakes for clients in Dorset, Hampshire and the South of England. Founded and owned by passionate cake designer and maker, Penelope Hurst, we offer a truly personal service to all our clients. Our goal is to make cakes that are special and unique for every client, both in taste as well as appearance. We offer sweet wedding cakes, modern savoury wedding cakes, traditional wedding favours and savoury wedding favours. We love the process of food invention as shown by our menus. We are always delighted when clients join with us to bring their own vision and tastes to that all important centrepiece for their celebration. Take a look at our Sweet Cake Menu and our Savoury Cake Menu and you will see that we really do have something new and different to offer as well as more traditional but delicious options.

All our cakes are designed and baked to order using fine ingredients including homemade preserves and fillings, high quality chocolate and unusually delicious fondant. We also use the finest quality ingredients in our savoury cakes and favours too! Wherever possible we use locally sourced ingredients and we always use fresh, free-range eggs.  As well as designing gorgeous cakes for your wedding or event we also supply dessert tables and savoury tables. We also make cakes and treats for parties and corporate events. Whatever your occasion we are happy to design something bespoke just for you.
