Brighton’s Best Hen Celebration Cakes

Red7 loves creating the best Hen Parties. And you know what? We think they should always include cake. We adore the gorgeous handmade cake and ice cream at Brighton's Cloud 9 Cakes. So if you’re off on a Red7 Hen (or Stag or Sten) why not get your VIP a celebration cake or host a welcome (or goodbye) coffee and cake session here.

Cloud 9 is on a mission to make the best cakes and ice cream in Brighton. The business which was started in 2010, now boasts three cake shops in Brighton, uses the best all-natural ingredients and owners Hannah and Paul McGrath love hosting Hen, (and Stag and Sten) cake sessions there.

"One of the most popular things we do is a welcome cake and ice cream session at one of our stores," says Hannah, who bakes tireless with her team to keep up with demand.

"It's great for groups because they can come and sit and get to know each other in a relaxed environment and refuel after a long journey before their weekend gets started.

It works just as well at the end of the Hen," she laughs, "it's a great place to come after you've checked out of your accommodation, when you all might still be a little worse for wear..."

Pizza, Prosecco & Cake.

The Cloud9 shops in The Lanes, York Place and Kensington Gardens (just round the corner from Red7 HQ in Brighton) offer every flavour you can imagine from Oreo to yummy Banoffee and Cloud 9’s amazing Rainbow Cake is truly the original.

If your group are passionate foodies, then you can do activities here such as making your own ice-cream sundae, or cupcake icing.

And if you’re on a bit of a budget, then in the evening, you can even bring your own Prosecco (or wine or beer) to Cloud 9 where the staff will order you in Brighton’s best pizza. Cake and ice cream is on the menu for dessert, obviously.

“It works really well for groups who might be in a rush on a particular night or perhaps want to to save restaurant costs – and with Red7 – we’ll order you in a Butler in the Buff too, if you want!” says Hannah.

A farewell coffee and cake session also works well for groups. “It’s great for groups on their last day in Brighton, once they’ve checked out of their hotel or party pad and want somewhere to go and recover a bit more over coffee and cake before heading home,” says Hannah.

Hen Cake Trends for 2018

Hen (or Stag or Sten) celebration cakes can be ordered from Cloud 9 via Red7 and you can collect or have the creation delivered to your hotel or accomodation.  

So, what sort of Hen celebration cake should you order this season?

As far as Hen cake trends go for 2018, anything goes as long as it’s gorgeous, “but it has to have a wow factor,” says Hannah.

“Hens are increasingly going for really special cakes this year.”

From naked cakes to semi-naked cakes, (partially frosted) to slathered in buttercream and covered in multi-coloured sprinkles, Cloud 9 can bespoke make almost anything you want.

“We’re very flexible, you just need to ask and if we can do it, we will,” says Hannah.

Flavour-wise, “personally I don’t think you can beat a good chocolate cake,” says Hannah. “People are crazy for our Oreo Cookie cake as well.”  Other flavours on the Cloud 9 cake menu include Caramel, Caramel Apple, Carrot & Walnut, Amaretti, Banoffee, After Eight, Lemon Curd, Ginger Nut and Mocha. I mean, c’mon. What’s not to like?
