Description

Beloved by liquorice lovers the World over, the famous Pontefract Cakes, also known as Pomfrets, were born in 1614 when Sir George Saville first applied a stamp to the small round liquorice cakes.  Initially, these cakes were consumed as a medicine.  This continued throughout the 17th and well into the 18th century.
