This time of year is always characteristically busy, as we meet up with brides who wish to discuss their cake styles and ideas with us. This provides the perfect opportunity to also try our sweet treats so that our couples can choose the inside of their cake too.

This week we were asked to think about a few different cake flavours for some Swedish clients, who were looking for something a little different for their wedding cake. They wanted their cake flavoured with either mango, peach or raspberry, the other major stipulation in our brief was ‘not too sweet’, mmmm….

Always up for a challenge I scoured my recipe books and online recipe sites in search of ideas I deemed suitable in matching the given criteria and set to work, spending time on in our test kitchen on Sunday experimenting with one or two of these recipes ahead of our meeting, later in the week.

The flavour choices I decided to prepare for these clients were:- one

  • Raspberry & Peach Melba with white chocolate chips
  • Strawberry with a Champagne fusion
  • Mango with a cream cheese and coconut frosting

The mango and the strawberry cakes was definitely firm favourites with our delightful couple today, we look forward to creating a deliciously mango wedding show stopper for them later in the year.
