Classic bakes with a global twist...

What We Do 


At the Adventurous Cakebook, we make delicious baked treats that put a little joy back into the world! 


I'm Alexander Harker and I'm a Welsh baker and pastry chef living in Sheffield.


Inspired by years of travel to destinations nearby and far-flung, and with an adventurous spirit, I decided to make some fabulous bakes using traditional recipes and memorable flavours; hey presto, the Adventurous Cakebook was born! 


From rich brownies inspired by a trip to a Chilean vineyard to flapjacks with a distinctly Moroccan Vibe, we've spent years travelling the world and now, using great ingredients, we're aiming to please the sweet tooth of folks up and down the country! 


Each of our products is made lovingly by hand, in sunny Sheffield, Yorkshire (well, on the border with Nottinghamshire for geography enthusiasts) and we're incredibly excited to combine our passion for globetrotting with our unending love of all things baked! We hope you'll join us on our sugary adventure!  

Where in the world are we next?
