The Incredible Fruitcake Co makes delicious cakes in wooden boxes. Our boxes are made from wood from a sustainable wood source.
The boxes protect the fruit cake mixture for the intense heat from an oven and enable an even bake. This means the cakes are moist and full of flavour.
Cake boxes have been used for many years and pre-date baking tins. We find the process of baking in wood very satisfying. The boxes can be used many times for all sorts of cakes. Please try out your box with some of the recipes that we send you with your order.
You can use the baking box for your own recipes. Generally the smaller box is suited to recipes for 7"to 8" tins and the larger for 8" to 10" tins.
The boxes won't ignite in the oven and we say that if you use greaseproof paper in the oven then you will know that wood is a lot more resistant to heat. If you are using a gas oven, keep away from a direct flame.
