We are almost beside ourselves with excitement to announce that a selection of our very best recipes from the C&D kitchen will soon be available in the forthcoming Cake Book, courtesy of Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube and our very own Cupcake Jemma. Penned by our very own Jemma (with a little help from the C&D team) it’s a handy cakey companion that’ll take your baking from so-so to woah! in no time at all. Featuring a selection of our very best cupcakes and cakes including Blueberry Cheesecake, Raspberry Ripple, Lemon Meringue, even the elusive and rarely-spotted Velvet Volcano! Best of all there’s no skipped steps or knock-off recipes here – every one is the full-on, C&D tried, tested and tasted recipe: sponge, icing, extras – exactly as we do it at the bakery.
You can pre-order The Cake Book right now at Amazon, and it’ll be all over the place (as well as on your doormat, if you’ve ordered early) from June 5th!
There was mountain excitement at C&D when Sarah asked us to come up with a mountaineering-themed cake for Linus’s birthday. We certainly were eiger to do it (fun fact – the shape of the mountain was loosely based on the Eiger mountain) and, despite a few rocky stages, it turned out pretty great!

Now, we’ve always steered a little bit clear of the classic Barbie Doll cake – sticking Barbie in the top of a cake always seemed a little bit, well, odd. But you know what they say about customers and being right, so we were determined to give it a go when long-time C&D fan Leah told us it was all Georgia wanted for her birthday. And you know what? It didn’t turn out so bad after all!
