Our Story

Hetty is a greedy cake loving girl from the Cotswolds who comes from a family of farmers with a sweet tooth. Hetty started baking in her small kitchen in Gloucester Docks Est 2011 after requests from friends to bake their birthday cakes somehow snowballed into a full time business with Great Taste Award winning recipes. Originally called ‘Hetty’s Tea Party‘ Hetty would sell her homemade cakes and best selling #fudgingdelicious brownies at markets building a loyal following of fellow cake lovers.

Hetty’s HQ has since outgrown the small flat at the Docks and now operates from a Kitchen in the Old Match Factory off Bristol Rd with a brilliant team of 4 brownie wizards (an affectionate name for our bakers).

We believe our recipe for success is largely due to two things

1) Our manic dedication to perfecting recipes based on direct customer feedback from the markets we attend

2) Ingredients really do make all the difference!  Not only do we believe that the best ingredients make the best tasting cakes, but we also believe that where and how you spend your pounds can shape the world we live in. This is why we bake fresh and seasonally, by hand, in small batches with the carefully sourced ingredients that are usually either fair trade or from local farmers in Gloucestershire.

You can buy directly from us at our bakery at Morelands Trading Estate, we have a little serving hatch we call ‘The Cake Hatch’. Please see Visit Our Cake Hatch for more info&opening times.
