Birthday Cakes, Double Deckers and Five Star Hotels

One of the best perks of this job is delivering our cakes to some fabulous venues. This week we've had birthday cakes delivered to One Aldwych, London Edition, Berkeley and Mandarin Oriental which are all fine stops I must say. While we can't ever really stop for long you do appreciate the gorgeous restrooms especially on long delivery days stuck in traffic!

We've also had a 4-tier bespoke cake delivered to the Rosewood Hotel and a 50 year anniversary cake to Coworth Park Hotel in Ascot! Our cakes do get around.

As do I, dear readers, as do I! For this week I was also at our Cadbury Double Decker canapé photo shoot to have some tasty shots taken of the tasty treats AND spent a day aboard the most fun double decker bus ever - one with a giant big kid sized ball pit and obstacle course on the lower deck, and a soft and fluffy chill out lounge on the top deck where we had hundreds of canapés served to visitors from ITV, press and nearby Kings uni on the south bank.

 

 

It's been quite a killer week with all these packed in as well as a spike in our Triple Decker cakes demand so I've taken the weekend to recharge and refresh as we've got some fun things coming up the following week that I can't wait to share (here's a hint - it's going to involve a croquembouche cake and a lot of gold, oh drats did I just give it all away?!)

Cadbury Double Decker Partnership

Literally the most exciting project I've had till date that I CAN SHOUT ABOUT!!!

I'm not one to be coy, evasive, elusive, all that. I'll quite tactlessly admit that I lack tact. I blame it on my parents - they had me in the first week of December, which makes me Sagittarius, and one of the more common personality traits is apparently tactlessness/frankness/brutal honesty. It's got me in some tepid-hot water situations before and no doubt will continue to do so but c'est la vie. What lurks in my head eventually bursts out of my mouth so you can imagine how my mouth must have been frothing in excitement to blurt about our partnership with the confectionery giant Cadbury! There couldn't be anything more flattering than being chosen to work with the king of choccie kingdom. #mademymumproud. 

Cadbury presented me a fabulous brief centered around their iconic chocolate bar - Cadbury Double Decker. I was to create three bite-sized recipes homing in on the various delicious components that make the bar legendary - its crisp cereal base layer, soft and light nougat filling, and chocolate coating.

It was one of the most fun projects because I got to play with loads of Double Deckers in the name of Research & Development - I bashed them, mashed them, melted them, rolled them, whipped them. Husband got to try a fair few "fails" quite happily and when we reached the final results it was literally #winning.

The first recipe is the Cadbury Double Decker "Freakshake" Cupcake - a mini chocolate cupcake, with a sea-salted caramel nougat frosting, glazed in chocolate, swirled with sea-salted caramel, Double Decker pieces and a chocolate covered biscuit straw.

The second recipe is a Cadbury Double Decker Cookie Sandwich - two "low fat low sugar" emoji style chewy chocolate chip cookies, sandwiched with a soft Double Decker nougat filling.

The third recipe is a Cadbury Double Decker Avocado Rocky Road - avocado brownie base (the avocado gives it a smooth, fudgey consistency - removing the need for butter!), cocoa-avocado frosting, a sprinkling of freeze-dried raspberry, cereal crispies and Double Decker shards.

These recipes are going to be reproduced a gazillion times to be served on the Cadbury Double Decker experiential bus tour across the UK, and the best bit?? I'm going to be on their London tour this Thursday! So if you see the bus make sure to hop on it - there's a fun itinerary on each deck of the bus and you'll find me on the top deck with the tasting menu.

I'll be sharing these super simple but super tasty recipes soon along with the official photos. In the mean-time if all this Double Decker chat has left you craving choccie, I don't apologise - go and treat yourself! 

Lots of love,

Fast Food Birthday Cake

A birthday cake fully loaded with a burger, fried chicken and chips, but not as you know it duh.

With my trunk full of junk, we set about creating our most fun cake yet! The Fast Food Cake!Fast Food cake

We already had a Fried Chicken & Waffle cake in our cake catalogue ( and it's pretty surprising that it's one of our best-selling cakes. We've tapped into something fundamental there I think...our customers have a wicked sense of humour, and we want MORE of that!

So we then created a Burger & Chips cake - a triple layered cake decorated with our doughnut and brownie burger and cookie chips. 

I like it, but if I'm honest with myself (and you) I think it's missing something. It's missing a bit of the Anges je-ne-sais-quoi (OMG...how pretentious do I sound?! Please don't hate me!). Anyhoo, I knew I wanted to revisit it.

Enter, the ultimate Fast Food Cake - it's our Fried Chicken, Burger and Chips all rolled into one fabulous binge fest.

Could there be a more fast and furious cake than this?! My work here is done.

Lots of love,

Reshmi xoxo
