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