About our Web Site

This is our second website, the first one was quite traditional, and to be honest a lot like every other website you may come across, so when we decided to create a new one to enable it to be compatible with all your “fones” and tablets, we thought we would make it funky and hopefully you would all like it as it reflects who we are; different, unique, fun, fast moving, homely and comfortable to be with!

However! We thought you might like a bit of an explanation over a few things! The illustrations have been created by a local but well known artist called Jim Fleming click on the clever link and see his artistry, he is a bit off the wall like us, loves music, plays lots of instruments, is massively creative, has done work for Medici, his art is all over the walls of Slinkey's Wine Bar (Banks Road, West Kirby) we could go on and on about him, but he would be embarrassed! We feel his contribution to our site has “Put The Icing On The Cake", Thanks Jim! Jim spent a while in our premises watching us work, taking photos and getting a feel for who we are, and the illustrations speak for themselves, we really are quite quirky!

Along the top of the pages are banners, there you can see Gordie, named after Gordon the Engine, he is our pastry brake, and he helps protect our shoulders, arms, wrists, elbows and hands from repetitive strain injury, he rolls out our icing and marzipan to the same thickness whatever the weather without increasing the temperature of the product, and makes colouring lots of icing a lot easier!

You can also see our chocolate machines, which mean we can use couverture and lots of it at one time without the need of temperature controlling the rooms. There is also a mad characterisation of Darthy, one of our mixers, so called cos his safety guard makes him look like Darth Vader, we have a small Darthy and a larger one, we couldn’t do without them.

Jim gave us wings as he said we were like little butterflies flitting here and there, he has also drawn characterised piping bags, we sometimes wish they would take on a life of their own, it would make our lives much easier!

We hope you enjoy looking around our funky web site.  If there is something we have missed please give us a call 0151 625 2659 or drop us an email help@pdcd.co.uk.  You will see that we have included a lot of pictures, these are just a fraction of some of the cakes we have made, the "tip of the iceberg" we have hundreds more designs in the catalogues in our showroom.  To "blow our own trumpets" we really do recommend you pop into our shop for a look around, we have over 90 cakes on display and well over 800 designs in our albums. We mustn't forget the chocolate room, here you will find "heaven" and over 25 chocolate cakes on display.
