Our lovely regular customer Sim got in touch a while ago to create a bespoke customised birthday cake version of our hench Triple Decker Nutella Ferrero Rocher Brownie Cake, two tiers no less. While we are strictly NO NOVELTY cakes (not hating, but it's simply not our thing) I instantly perked up at the mention of her daughter Abigail's birthday being Curious George themed and her love of the colour yellow. The cake HAD to have little bananas on it then!
We hand-modelled some white chocolate bananas, both peeled and unpeeled. They are SO FREAKIN CUTE. Yeah they took time as we make all our own modelling chocolate, colour it, shape it, shade it blah blah blah but I do think they look absolutely adorable and are totally worth the extra expense to fit this theme. Plus, it's chocolate, not fondant, and tastes great too!
Decorating the two tiers of the Triple Decker cake with the bananas was a joy - each banana adding a pop of colour and dimension to the decor already in place including Ferrero Rocher cones, chocolate chip cookie dough, Oreo cookies and brownie crumble.
It was one of our busiest baking days and while every cake that leaves our bakery is our baby I will admit I had a mega soft spot for this one and was sad to see it leave yet excited at the same time for Sim to receive it! So imagine my hysteria when she emailed us this:
"Cake has arrived. Looks amazing! Please thank all those who made it."
YASSSSS!!!! High fives all around!
I think some of our best bespoke work has been for those customers who are open to our suggestions and don't spam us with loads of photos of other cake makers' cakes. Our strength lies in our creativity which is of course aligned to our style as that's what we specialise in but by letting us breathe and do what we do best is possibly the best way to get the best out of us! Totally over-used the word best there, but it is the best word ;)
Thanks for this awesome order Sim! Hope Abigail loved it as much as we did!
Lots of love,
