The Letter Box is a family run business which has been supplying everything for the cake decorator for over 40 years. We carry stocks from all the leading manufacturers and some of our ranges are produced exclusively for us. You will notice that all our list prices are very competitive and all items can be purchased singly (subject to minimum order requirements). However, we give a discount of 10% for pack quantities on most items and a further discount of up to 15% depending on the size of order. Click here for discounts.

Although we have tried to list most items here, there are always some items not included – for example new items or items with limited stocks – so if you can’t find what you want please ask. We are gradually adding pictures of our products to the site but with such a huge range this is a rather long job! Click on the Ref. for each product where highlighted to view a picture of that item. Personal shoppers are always welcome at the shop and we offer a comprehensive mail order service for those who live further a field or prefer the convenience of home delivery. Please note: Small items may be unsuitable as play items for children under 36 months due to small parts.
