Flavour Thoughts

8 Nov

Sorry it’s been a while peeps.

I have finally finished all the wedding fayres for this year, the last one being Dartington Hall wedding fayre, which had a lovely feel to it, and was really friendly.

Now I am busy gearing up for doing the xmas cakes. If you want to get in contact and order one pootle on through to the website (www.eatsleepcake.co.uk) and send me a message. The flavours, decorations and price list should be on the latest news section for your perusal.

I spent last Saturday at the Cake International show at the NEC. There were some absolutely stunning cakes and sugarcraft flower displays and I am feeling really excited about the new ideas that are coming through, but more if that later..

One stand at the show was selling Christmas cakes ready to ice, that had no fruit in them! Thought it was a slightly strange idea myself but got me thinking about different, slightly more exotic flavours that could be used in cakes.

One of my clients suggested Key Lime Pie flavour? Or how about Lemon Meringue Pie for a lovely summer flavour?

And obviously Chocolate is now regularly teamed with less traditional partners, like chocolate and chilli, or chocolate and beetroot? Might have to try that one out on my unsuspecting family before suggesting it to clients!

So has anyone got a favourite flavour that they think could be incorporated into a cake? I would love to hear your ideas!

Speak soon everyone. Thank you for reading this blog and please check out the facebook page as that is where I post most of the new cake pics (though here are a couple to keep you going!)
