Description

Taveners Pontefract Cakes - Now, these lovelies are iconic, and have been around for AGES. Listen to this for a priceless bit of trivia:

According to our in-house sweet anorak, the Pontefract Cake (aka Pomfret Cake, or Yorkshire Penny) with the imprint of Pontefract Castle has been around since 1614!Originally, they were only made in Pontefract (that's near Leeds)... bad weather didn't matter too much because they used the liquorice root.

And listen to this... liquorice is such a big deal in Pontefract, that there is now an annual Liquorice Festival celebrated! How cool is that?!

Other bits of Pontefract Cake trivia:-

- Up to the 1960s all Pontefract Cakes were made by hand
- A Pontefract Cake maker was known as a Caker or Thumper
- In 1955 a caker was paid 4 pence a tray, with each tray holding 280 cakes
