Bespoke Cornetto Cake

Cornetto 1

Never ones to turn down the chance to eat ice cream in the name of research, we naturally jumped at the chance to help the guys at Cornetto with this birthday gift for Perrie from Little Mix. This decadent beast of a cake, based on a Choc Caramel Crunch Cornetto, is two tiers of rich chocolate and caramel sponge, covered in caramel buttercream and ganache, piled high with all kinds of ice cream related trappings. Now that the work is done, we probably deserve another Cornetto… right?

 

Three Tier Raspberry Ripple Cake!

Raspberry Ripple 4

Here’s a closer look at the ridiculously delicious three-tier Raspberry Ripple cake we did for Laura, this week. Each tier is made up of eight (yes EIGHT!) layers of raspberry sponge, coulis and buttercream… What more could you want than 24 layers of the moist, raspberry goodness? Fun fact – it took 5 punnets of fresh raspberries to create this monster. Totally worth it, if you ask us!

Succulent inspired wedding cupcakes!

Succulents 4

It’s not every day you get asked to theme a wedding order around drought-resistant plants, but based on how beautiful these succulent inspired cupcakes are, maybe it should be!

Jess & Simon’s big day was all about the muted, pastel hues found in nature (oh and love and marriage, probably!), and we think their choice of cupcakes reflects this perfectly. We used soft Vanilla buttercream to bring in the beautiful, soft shades of blue, grey, purple & green to tie in with the succulents. Each succulent is hand-made and hand-painted and is perched on a pillowy pile of Cream Cheese frosting, topping a Jamaican Gingerbread base.

Congratulations Jess & Simon! We hope you love these as much as we do!

Mixed Minis 2
