The history of creating a cake online is linked directly to our exclusive Designacake system. After extensive searching of websites all over the globe in the 1990's, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses came to the conclusion that we would have to design our idea from scratch. Nowhere in the world had a bakery developed a system where people could design their cake, add their message and then order and pay for their cake online.
Ferguson Plarre were driven by the need to provide a convenient solution for their customers who were often short of time and wanted to browse their cake options without the hassle of traffic, parking, fuel consumption and at times their tired children. What better way to solve this problem than to provide a window to Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses via the internet?
