Friday Flavours - Strawberry Prosecco

Chances are, you're ordering a cake to celebrate something - perhaps it's your wedding day, a birthday or anniversary - and what better way to celebrate than with bubbles!

Caked's Strawberry Prosecco flavour is everything you want from a celebratory cake. Light vanilla sponge soaked in a prosecco syrup and filled with prosecco buttercream and strawberry conserve. It's light, it's fun and a little bit cheeky!

Friday Flavours - Vanilla Salted Caramel

Salted caramel as a flavour has been a buzz word of the food industry for a few years now. Unlike other trends that may have had their moment (I'm looking at you Cupcakes, Cronuts and Duffins!), salted caramel has proved it is no passing gimmick. 

And there is good reason for that. It just works. 

Cake is sweet, and when you fill or top it with more sweetness from rich buttercream, it can be a little too much for some palates. But with a swirl of salted caramel drizzled on top, or a spoonful (or several!) whipped into buttercream, that saltiness cuts through all those sweet flavours perfectly. 

Vanilla-Salted-Caramel-Cake

Which is why my Vanilla Salted Caramel is one of my most popular flavours. If you're more of a savoury person, or you're not keen on overly sweet flavours, this one is for you! At Caked, I use a homemade salted caramel to swirl into the buttercream, it's delicious!

Caked is now fully booked until end of May 2018, but there are still limited dates available for June onwards. Contact Claire at Caked to book your wedding consultation and taste some of the featured Friday Flavours.

Friday Flavours - Lemon & Lavender

This was one of the very first flavours on my cake menu, so it has a special place in my heart.

Lemon+Lavender

Developed for the very first wedding cake I ever made, my good friends Matt & Ari had lavender as the main theme of their wedding. They specifically wanted lemon cake, but when I added the lavender twist, they were sold. Their buttercream wedding cake was decorated with crystallised lavender around each tier.

With the floral twist, Lemon & Lavender is particularly popular for summer weddings. A super zesty lemon & lavender syrup soaks through the fluffy lemon sponge, with an equally zingy buttercream, it makes a perfectly light cake for serving after a large meal.

As one of my signature flavours, Lemon & Lavender is included in most consultations. If you're keen to taste it for your wedding day, contact Claire at Caked to arrange your wedding consultation. Dates still available for Summer 2018!

 

Friday Flavours - Chocolate Oreo

This one's a must for any chocolate lover!

Chocolate Oreo is another popular flavour for weddings. Layers of rich fudgy chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercream and crushed Oreos.

If you're serving your cake as dessert (a great way to save some pennies and make sure everyone tries the cake!), this is a great choice as it's a little richer than other flavours. It's almost more like a brownie than a cake!

Friday Flavours - Spice Apple & Chai

This is one of my all time favourite cakes, and it's fast becoming a favourite with Caked customers too!

I created Spiced Apple & Chai when the lovely Rebecca & Nick asked me to create a bespoke flavour for their autumnal woodland wedding last October. After much experimentation with apples, blackberries, toffee and much more, they fell in love with the sweet and warming spiced apple.

The light gently spiced apple sponge is soaked with a warming spiced syrup, and perfectly complimented with a fluffy chai buttercream. It's different, comforting but most importantly, absolutely delicious!

Friday Flavours - Red Velvet

Welcome to Friday Flavours!

Each Friday I'll be showcasing one of my signature cake flavours, and introducing some new ones along the way.

To start things off, I can't think of anything more fitting than one of my bestselling flavours - Red Velvet.

RedVelvet

I always find it difficult to describe the taste of Red Velvet. It's an oil-based cake, so not as rich as a cake made with butter. But there's a creaminess to it, a hint of chocolate, and for want of a better word, it's deliciously moist.

No one quite knows the origin of Red Velvet, but it first appeared in America in the 1920's. Many claim to be the inventor of the cake - including the Waldorf Astoria in New York! - but it's generally thought to be a Southern-style cake.

What is certain though is the clear resurgence in recent years, not just in America but worldwide. There are many different recipes, mine took over a year to perfect. I pair mine with white chocolate buttercream, an ideal companion especially for wedding cakes.

So if you're looking for a show-stopping wedding cake, Red Velvet could be for you. I include Red Velvet in all my consultations so if you're keen to try, book in your wedding consultation now!

I've been busy in the Caked kitchen working on some delicious new flavours to add to my cake menu. 

To kick off, may I present Tropical Breeze.

Tropical-breeze-cake-flavour

Layers of light pineapple and banana sponge, paired with a delightfully zingy pineapple, lime and coconut buttercream. The flavours work so well together and offer a delicious alternative to your more traditional cake flavours.

So if you're looking for a tropical twist on your wedding day (or for your next celebration whatever it may be!) have a try of this yummy cake. I'll be including it in all upcoming consultations so book now to have a taste!
