Darren Purchese

In ten years B&P has become an institution, a Melbourne original and is the work of husband and wife team Darren Purchese & Cath Claringbold.

Loved and trusted for Darren's decadent desserts and cakes made daily, and for his painstakingly handmade creations including small batch jams and spreads (try B&P's famous Salted Caramel Spread lollipops, confectionery and chocolate. They are so dedicated to their craft they even have their own bee hives.

In recent times B&P have moved their delicious offering purely online. This has allowed Darren to create a larger menu with zero waste and their Drive Through Service at the rear of the store makes collection a breeze. You can call from your car and one of the team will bring your beautifully boxed order out to you.

They are constantly adding new things to their range and the newest arrivals include their scrumptious dessert pots available in fourteen signature B&P flavours, matched with a smart little cocktail list and sparkling wines.

B&P's online store offers irresistible deliciousness. Whether it's something for you, for home, or a beautifully boxed gift for friends or family, whose day would be brightened by a thoughtful delivery?
