Welcome to

Short But Sweet

Homemade cakes, cookies & sweet treats made to order!

Lovingly baked in Chorley, Lancashire and delivered to you.


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

It is operated alongside a part-time job, so I use up all my free time to bake! 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 craft/handmade fairs across the county throughout the year, dates and details will be posted on my Facebook page.

I also have a shop on the wonderful British Craft House website and if you are a My VIP Rewards member you can receive 10% off your order with me!

You can now request a celebration cake quote online! Go to Order Online and look for "Celebration Cake Quote". 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.
