What We Do…


Cupcakes – what’s not to like?  Whether you’re celebrating or commiserating, a box of freshly baked, delicious cupcakes always go down a storm.  However, if you’re dealing with a special dietary requirement, it can be so difficult to find cupcakes that not only look the part, but actually taste good too.

At NeedCake, we pride ourselves in baking flavoursome cupcakes that just happen to be Gluten Free and Vegan Friendly.  In fact, unless you were to tell people that our cupcakes were baked without gluten and contained no animal products, they would struggle to guess.

That’s because at NeedCake we believe everyone needs good cake.  Try them for yourself today!

Gluten Free Vegan Friendly Allergy Friendly Cupcakes

We offer six flavours in our core range:  Lemon & Poppy Seed, Chocolate Fudge, Raspberry & Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Mint Choc Chip and Carrot Cake.

Our cupcakes are available in boxes of 6 or 12 (or multiples, who are we to limit you!) – either stick to one flavour or go wild and order the mixed variety box, ideal for when you just can’t make up your mind.

Due to the fragile nature of our boxed cupcakes, they are only available for collection from NeedCake HQ in Bathgate, West Lothian.  Please allow 3-5 working days from placing your order to collecting your cupcakes.  You’ll receive an email or text message when your order is ready.

We are currently trialing postage options so we can spread the NeedCake love a little further – after all, everyone needs good cake, regardless of how far away they stay!


Postage Friendly Cakes!

NeedCake Gluten Free Vegan Allergy Friendly West Lothian Bathgate

So we’ve established that everyone Needs Good Cake, that bit’s a given.  But what happens if you’re too far away from NeedCake HQ to get your hands on one of our delicious baked goodies?  The answer, my friend, lies in the Sharing Pot.

Layers of moist sponge, oozy sauce, fruity preserve and swirls of our signature butterless buttercream are safely stowed in a secure, postable, reusable pot and sent through the magic of Royal Mail directly to you!

Each of our core range of flavours can be transferred into one of these travelling beauties.  Dependant on the flavour you choose, your pot will come with layers of salted caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, lemon curd or raspberry preserve, plus a generous helping of a complimentary buttercream.

Each sharing pot holds the equivalent of four regular cupcakes and comes complete with two spoons to make sharing the NeedCake love that little bit easier.  There again, who are we to tell you how to eat your cake – sharing is definitely NOT compulsory!

To order one of these beauties, head over to our shop.  Once you’ve ordered, drop us a line on i_need_cake@yahoo.com and let us know what flavour or flavours you’d like.  Just like our cupcakes, please allow 3-5 working days for your goodies to be ready.  We’ll send you an email just after we’ve popped it in the post.

For travelling sharing pots, we use Royal Mail First Class delivery.  There is often a signature required on delivery.  Please take this into account when placing your order.
