Welcome to Short But Sweet

Award winning homemade cakes, cookies & sweet treats made to order! 

Lovingly baked in Chorley, Lancashire.


My name is Rachael and Short But Sweet is a small home-bakery run from my humble little kitchen in Chorley, Lancashire. ​

Everything is baked fresh to order so there may be a short lead time, please give me as much notice as possible if you are ordering for a special occasion.

Visit my Shop page to see products available to order all year round and look out for my special Taster Boxes. You can also find me trading at local markets across the county and checkout my retail stockists below!

I also have a shop on the wonderful British Craft House website.

You can now request a celebration cake quote online! Simply fill in the details, add to basket and checkout - don't worry there is nothing to pay. I will then reply via email with your quote.
