“It can’t just look great, it has to taste it as well…”
…Hello! We are an online made-to-order cake company! Ok maybe that’s over simplifying it, but it’s a lot cleaner than a long list of descriptors.
We are a family run business that produces cakes for all occasions, such as weddings, birthdays and corporate events to name a few. The origins of this family run business started way back in the late1960’s in the way of DVB John & Son Bakery in Devizes, Wiltshire and have continued to this day.
Some 45 years later and a few twists and turns along the way, the ‘Munchies’ brand began back in 2005 now originating from Harlow, Essex. In 2010 the family’s middle son Jamie took over the business and by 2017, with the ever expanding growth of internet trade, decided to take the next step by opening the store online. With now easier access to all our designs, customers could now see and choose the cake they want first hand and place an order in their own time.
Why the name ‘Munchies’?
The ‘Munchies’ name originated from the family’s youngest son, ‘Munchie’. He was born with Down’s syndrome in 2002 and was nicknamed Munchie after being described as a little munchkin in his hospital cot. The nickname has carried through to this day and he is even known by it in school. When the idea of reinvigorating the business in 2005, the name seemed fitting as a symbolism of love and appreciation for Munchie… And well, seemed to fit the nature of our business rather perfectly! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love a bit of cake when they’ve got the Munchies?
