Our Story

Founded by retailers for retailers.

This is how we started, why we started, and how we’ve become one of the fastest growing eCommerce agencies in the UK.

The Early Days

Cake wasn’t built to be an ordinary agency.

With our retail background, our teams were created to provide a service that seamlessly supports the pressure of running an online business.

We understand the urgency of timely reporting and execution of tactics, but also the long-term strategic vision needed to really drive scale.

Our Vision

Cake will be your outsourced eCommerce support that feels like an in-house team.

We’ll be in the battle with you every day and we’ll never be far away when you need a sounding board or hands-on help.

Partners for growth

We love making sales. It’s in our DNA as an agency and nothing makes us happier than seeing the till ring more and more for our clients.

You’ll work with dedicated teams that get to know your business inside and out and from year-round campaign launches to Black Friday madness, we’ll be by your side, monitoring performance and offering recommendations along the way. We’ll never be short of ideas when it comes to pushing your brand forward.

What's next?

Starting in 2017 as a team of 1, we are now a team of 20 passionate Cakers—experts in their area and based in Birmingham’s creative Jewellery Quarter.

We’re a fast-growing agency, but we always know where we’re going next. To take this journey with us, you need to fit the Cake mould, understanding what we do and why we do it.

About Us

Cake (formerly Digital Cake) is an agency founded by retailers for retailers. The founders have been there, done that, and sold the shoes, having set up Cloggs back in 2001 when the online world was just getting going.

Now, we have 20 years of experience we can bring to our clients, no matter whether they’re e-commerce savvy, launching a start-up, scaling an online brand, and all the things in-between.
