Our Suppliers | Exploding Bakery

Hi and welcome to our local artisan and gifts range. In this regular blog series we take a closer look at our local artisan producers who reflect all that is special and unique to our region. Today we are delighted to highlight The Exploding Bakery and introduce Alastiar Sawer.

” Since school friends Tom & Oli formed the business in 2011, the plan was a simple one: to provide great cakes to café’s, delis and anyone else who wanted a superior cake that tastes homemade. The plan hasn’t changed and the cakes have just got better and better. “


” We’re a wholesale cake company with an ethical stance on the ingredients we use, the people we work with and the products we make. We’ve been slowly building these principles since 2011 and believe that they have helped us to make better products in a better way and will help us to keep improving as we continue on our sweet and sticky journey. ”

” If I was to be represented by any of our cakes it would definitely be our Sour Cherry & Pistachio Traybake because I am a colourful character.”

” We love working with WestCountry as they have a great relationship with us as a supplier and are always professional. “

” Next for Exploding Bakery we have some exciting plans. We have been busy developing three new products and flavours which will be launching later this year! We are currently trialing some of these recipes in our Café based in Exeter. ”

The love child of Tom Oxford & Oliver Coysh who make thoroughly modern cakes, crafted into bold new flavours and varieties. Perfect for a generation who crave new culinary experiences, are conscious about what they eat but don’t want to compromise on taste. ‘Though the way we do it is rather old fashioned – we won’t cut corners or compromise on quality.’
