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.
This exciting course takes place over 2 days, the 12th & 13th October. If you adore chocolate in all forms this course is for you.
Sat 12 & 13 Oct
Join us to learn a range of impressive but achievable cake decorating techniques.
Fri 04 Oct
Perfect for anyone looking to broaden their breadmaking range and introduce a flavour of warmer climes.
