News: Heritage Cake Company are coming to the Crafts Day
Our next Open Day on Saturday 11 June will be our special ‘crafts’ themed day. We will be joined by local craft groups demonstrating skills of the past.
Amongst the participants will be The Heritage Cake Company who make the famous Coventry Godcakes amongst other tasty treats.So if you haven’t tried one of these delicious, golden, fruit-filled triangles, this is your chance.
Leigh Waite is the Head Heritage Baker, responsible for reviving the Godcakes a few years ago. Leigh is really looking forward to bringing the historical recipes along, as she explained: “Our Godcakes date back to the 14th Century so they would have been part of Coventry’s culinary offering when the Weaver’s House was being built. It’s a really exciting chance to bring a taste of our own local food heritage to such a special local heritage site.”
In addition to the Godcakes, the company produce a range of heritage cakes including the Coventry Corporation Custard and English Rose Cake.
We’ll still be providing tea and coffee from our tearoom alongside Leigh’s selection of cakes. Stay tuned for more details on our crafts day soon!
