March 2019 Updates
Ordering is now live! – We’re super excited to announce that customers are now able to place orders online at FindTheCake.
Search by date – Customers can now filter search results by the date required. Find this feature under filters, enter the date you need your cake by and you’ll be shown all the cakes that can meet your timescale. Perfect!
Search bugs fixed – As far as we know all search bugs are now resolved. If you spot any please contact us.
Search radius – You can now submit your collection radius on your searches. Found under filters customers can select how far they would travel to collect their cakes. Cakes that are available for delivery to the customer’s area will be shown in the results unless the customer chooses collection only.
Bakers get paid – In the baker’s dashboard under manage profile, bakers can now submit their account number and sort code, ready to receive payments. Please note if we don’t have this information we can’t forward your payments, add this when you can.
Useful tools – Bakers now have access to some useful tools to make quoting easier, currently featuring a portion calculator and a simple recipe cost calculator. Sign in to your baker’s account and select useful tools to use now.
