A cake, a train, and a Brian

This is Brian. He’s one of three distinct ways our London clients receive their Peboryon cake. As cake heroes go, we think he’s great, but to many of our London clients, he’s more… he’s the Father Christmas of cake.

Brian’s credentials are solid. For the last two years he has worked for WeGo, a company committed to diligently handling valuable, fragile, heat and time sensitive objects. So the ability to deliver our client’s cakes on time and in pristine condition is second nature to him.

Back at the studio, our expertly boxed and insulated cakes are sealed ready for transportation, then personally delivered to Inter City Rail Freight, a newly revived (and rather romantically named) rail service running three times a day from Penzance to Paddington. They are dedicated to bringing quality Cornish goods safely and securely into the heart of the capital. As cake journeys go, it’s the smoothest and gentlest of rides.

When our cakes pull into Paddington Station, Brian is waiting patiently with the key to the cake compartment. He gently carries the precious cargo to his rather swish electric van, and on to the party. We believe his service gives Peboryon cakes the lowest carbon footprint of any luxury cake in all of London.

Every carefully designed, freshly baked and finely finished cake bound for Paddington (under 18 inches tall), we entrust into Brian’s steady care. Each cake arrives in plenty of time for the celebrations, and can even be temporarily housed at WEGO HQ before being personally delivered to smart venues, five star hotels, and private homes around the capital.

As suppliers to The Goring, The Langham, Fulham Palace and The Dorchester Collection, we’re proud to say Cornwall is making London uniquely more tasty, thanks to Brian, WeGo and The Cornish Express.
