Hardened professional food writers and enthusiastic amatuers, like Mr Blackwell himself, have declared on numerous occasions that the Ruth Pretty Christmas Cake is the best in the land. The reasons why are simple: Authenticity and generosity. Real deal ingredients like butter and brandy, local fruit, and lots of it.
We are thrilled to offer this traditionally baked cake in an elegant gift box, fastened with Blackwell and Sons ribbon, perhaps a metaphor for the friendship we have with Ruth and Paul Pretty.
Bicycles, tricycles and e-bikes
We deliver our bicycles all over Aotearoa New Zealand ourselves for a few reasons; we like to ensure your bicycle arrives in perfect condition and we also want you to be able to ride it immediately. We set your seat and handlebar height so you can ride comfortably and we listen and respond to any questions you have. We like to ensure we are minimising our fuel use and pollution so we like to schedule the most efficient delivery plan possible. That’s why it may take a month or two to get your bicycle to you. Please check our Delivery page for more information and to view our next scheduled delivery to your area.
We will despatch your purchase the same day or next day and we will email you courier tracking information so you know exactly where your package is. We try, wherever possible, to use recycled or compostable packaging. For all orders, we charge $9.90 towards the cost of the courier.
