May and June have been super busy months for us! It seems like everyone has a summer birthday, and everyone wants a delicious birthday cake. Something we are more than happy to help with! I've had some great fun this past couple of months creating new cake flavours and ideas. At the same time getting things together for the new shop. It all seems to be taking a bit longer than we had anticipated but good things take time - and it is going to be good!
We're very lucky to have a lovely kitchen at our other premises to use until the brand new one is up and running. So we're taking and fulfilling orders all the time. My favourite one we've done recently has to be this rainbow cake.
It's a light and airy vanilla sponge with raspberry butter cream covered in homemade marshmallow fondant, coloured blue with white running through to create a cloud effect. Then more coloured fondant to create the rainbow and more lovely marshmallows for the clouds.
The best bit about it though is that when you cut it open loads of sweets pop out. I'm a sucker for anything sweet so this one was a winner for me! Later in the year we'll be running classes on how to make this cake - so if you want to learn to make your own, why not sign up to our newsletter and we can keep you posted!
Another thing I'm loving at this time of year is all the lovely yummy summer berries popping up. We made this summer berries cake for a birthday. It's full of juicy raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, and topped with whipped cream and - surprise - more berries! It's a lovely fresh tasting cake, great for those who don't like icing, or cakes that are too sweet.
And there was this white chocolate and strawberry cake, with white chocolate icing and fresh strawberries in the pink part of the cake.
There's almost too many to mention - so check out our cakes page to see the other ones we've done over time. There is something so satisfying about making a beautiful cake, seeing peoples faces when its brought to the table... and then the smiles as its getting devoured!
