Afternoon Tea - Cake Subscription Boxes

Afternoon Tea - Cake Subscription Boxes

Posted by Amelia on 18th Jun 2021

NEW Afternoon Tea subscription boxes!

The sun has finally made an appearance! For those of us living in the UK, this means; finally being able to whack the BBQ out, go for day trips to the beach, picnic in the park, and dress in the summer clothes we’ve been wanting to wear for a pretty long time.

But those aren’t the only things we have to look forward to this summer, because guess what? We’ve just launched an afternoon tea subscription service! Meaning? You can now enjoy a delicious vegan and gluten-free box of afternoon tea treats every month, for either 3, 6 or 12 months!

You can also choose to order as a one-off if you wish, a great option if you're planning to buy this as a birthday gift for a loved one; a treat for a party or get-together; or if you just want to try it out before taking the plunge.

What do our subscription boxes contain?

Each subscription box contains; x1 sachet of fragrant loose-leaf tea (provides 10 cups) by Bird and Blend (metal strainer included), x4 delicious gluten-free Positive Bakes scones (a little smaller than our usual scones), x1 mini jam jar (25g) by Rosebud Preserves, and a selection of either cakes, brownies, blondies or flapjacks, made right here at Positive Bakes!

Delicious cake subscriptions made just for you!

Delicious Recipes Make Delicious Bakes

The scrumptious bakes in your afternoon tea box are made using clean, ethical ingredients and have been created by combining flavours and fillings that are sure to make your taste buds sing! We don't do one or the other; it's either tasty and sustainable bakes, or none at all!

The beauty of our cake subscriptions

Because each box is different, you might get delicious vegan cakes one month, and gooey blondies or brownies the next; giving you the chance to work your way through our tasty range! And you don't have to follow a vegan or gluten-free diet to enjoy our treats. All you need is a sweet tooth: we'll take care of the rest!

The cake subscription box for vegan foodies

Because these subscription boxes are so varied, they're the ultimate gift for vegan foodies who like to try new things. They'll get to try out a variety of sweet bakes, without the hassle of searching for vegan treats themselves!

And, if you do decide to buy a monthly subscription as a gift for a friend, you can add a customised message to every box. There's no extra cost for this and you don't have to include one, but we think adding a personalised message just makes the recipient feel that little bit more cared for!

If you're the vegan foodie in your life, why not gift a subscription package to yourself? The perfect gift to yourself if you'd like to enjoy a range of bakes whilst sticking to a vegan or gluten-free diet!

And, the great thing about this subscription services is that you're not limited. If you decide to go for a subscription of 3 months or more, you don't have to gift a box to the same recipient each month. You can gift the first box to your friend, the next box to a colleague, and the next to a family member. Its up to you how you want your monthly subscription to work!

Using only plant-based ingredients has a significant impact on reducing the Co2 emissions generated from more conventional dairy-based products.


The ingredients we use are not the cheapest, they come from certified sources, many being organic and are all completely traceable.


Our entire range is better for the environment, does not use any animal products and doesn't cost the earth. In short, everyone wins.


Like many food producers, we found packaging to be a challenging area at first. The tendency for far too long has been to use plastic trays and plastic wraps, simply for their affordability. This is not acceptable and is an attitude that must change rapidly.


Our solution to minimise plastic packaging and our impact on the environment is to offer our range in larger sizes, so you can order less often and keep your bakes frozen - minimising; packaging, cost, shipping and food waste.

After an extensive search, we found a bespoke, food grade wrap that is 100% compostable and 100% biodegradable.


This wrap is completely plant based and far better for the environment than a typical BPA-free plastic wrap which ends up in landfill and adds to the problem.

We love our cardboard boxes, they transport well, store well and are 100% compostable.

Our Carbon Footprint

We have worked hard to reduce our carbon footprint at every opportunity and will continue to implement positive change in our processes to benefit the environment.

Our entire product range is plant based which is more sustainable and better for the planet, however that is not enough for us.

Our modern production facility combined with efficient production equipment has a low environmental impact. Our locally sourced and UK manufactured packaging and choosing to work with a carbon neutral courier company ensures all aspects of what we do has a minimal impact on our planet.
