The taste of your cake is as important as the look, my bakes have 4 layers of delicious  sponge and are then triple layered with complementing syrups, buttercreams, conserves and curds.  In order to achieve the smooth finish of my cakes , they are covered in either chocolate ganache or buttercream before being iced with luxury sugar paste .

Traditional Fruit Cake  – Rich fruit cake made with top quality plump fruit generously steeped in orange juice ,brandy & sherry  the cakes are matured for a minimum of 6 weeks and ‘fed’ twice with brandy.

 

All ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible , if local ingredients are not available I use organic, fair-trade & rainforest alliance alternatives.

In the standard recipe celebration cakes ,I use British sugar , Hampshire flour ,  English butter , top quality preserves , and  eggs are freshly laid free range from a local farm . 

Cakes are prepared in my fully inspected and approved kitchen where nuts, soya, dairy , eggs, wheat & gluten are used so I cannot guarantee there will not be traces of these ingredients in the cakes.
