What do you get when you order a cake from us?
With so many choices and cake-makers out there these days, as well as cut-price supermarket options, we hope we can make that decision a little easier for you!
Here’s what makes us different:
We choose to use the best ingredients. All eggs in our recipes are free-range, and only those from farms where the chickens do not have their beaks trimmed. We do not buy eggs from supermarkets that support caged-hen farmers. Every item we make with butter contains French unpasteurised butter from Normandy, rather than the “Value” products and cheaper supermarket butters that have a lower butterfat content. We’d rather use the genuinely premium products and feel justified in charging a little bit more. We only use organic milk and cream.
Our flour arrives in huge 25kg sacks directly from Shipton Mill in Gloucestershire – it is superb quality, and it means we know exactly what we are getting as we are buying it directly from the source.
All of the chocolate we use in our baking and chocolate work is Callebaut or Cacao Barry couverture chocolate (no supermarket cooking chocolate in this kitchen!). The dark chocolate we choose is a “single origin” variety, meaning the cocoa beans have come from one farmer in one country.
You get our time and my passion for what we do when you order from us, along with our talent and skill. I constantly keep myself trained and am the master of research and practice! When you order a beautifully elegant cake from us, we want you to feel that you’ve just bought excellence. That’s what sets us apart from the rest.
