100 Years of Bettys
A 100th birthday needs a very special cake. That just happened to be a speciality of our founder, Frederick Belmont – and to mark our Centenary, we’ve brought one of his most spectacular creations back to life.
We’ve given some classics a special centenary makeover. Taste a few new Bettys flavours and add a limited edition piece to your collection.
Miniature versions of our Fat Rascals in three celebratory new flavours: rich Cherry and Almond, zesty Orange and Sultana and deeply decadent Double Chocolate.
Bettys Cookery School was created with a simple ambition in mind: to share the skills essential to creating delicious food with anyone who wants to become a star baker.
Create this delicious selection of relaxed and informal meals; perfect for everyday dining with family and friends.
