quality of our cakes
All of our
cakes are made to the highest standards; be they Wedding, Christening or any
other celebration cake. Large or small, attention to detail is very important to
cake to sponge, the cakes are made entirely by hand - no packets here!!!!
The cakes are
made from real ingredients, and recipes that are tried and tested, so they taste
as good as they look.
cakes can come to you plain as a Victoria. For a special occasion for tea, they
can be made in a variety of sumptuous flavours; coffee and walnut, coffee,
vanilla, orange, lemon, or a decadent rich chocolate cake. How about a scrummy
carrot and orange? What ever you decide, the cake will be a deep, delicious
treat to tantalise your taste buds…!
The fruit in
our fruit cakes are soaked in brandy or sherry to ensure maximum flavour. After
the cake is baked, brandy or sherry will be added slowly, over a period of time,
to top up the infusion of flavours. This also ensures that the cake will be
mature, rich and moist when it is delivered.
your cake is finished
are brushed with apricot glaze before the covering of almond paste (marzipan) is
added. Then a layer of rolled fondant icing is placed on top, ready to be
finished to your specification. Sponges can be finished with a thin layer of
butter-cream and also with rolled fondant. If so desired, there is no reason why
you cannot have marzipan under the rolled icing.
All of the
flowers and foliage created are made from flower-paste. They are hand-made,
home-made, and can be coloured to your specification. Equally, you can have
added in to your flowers/bouquet feathers, ribbons, beads or diamantes. We pride
ourselves on the beautiful hand-made flowers looking realistic; they are veined
and finished as if they where the real thing.
for the cakes
These can be
created out of pastillage, royal icing or marzipan. They would be edible or you
may choose to keep them as a memento of the occasion. I.e. Cots, booties,
teddies, fairies, dancing shoes, models of people... Any theme, we endeavour to
make it a truly memorable cake what ever the occasion. You may want to add your
own trinkets; the choice is yours. Lace-work can be added (made of royal icing),
and is fully edible; looking elegant and graceful when added to a cake. You can
have star bursts, a party theme…. whatever you want, we will try our utmost to
realise your wishes.
To create a
truly unique and beautifully crafted cake to adorn any table, we pay particular
attention to small details. We ensure the cake is presented on a cake-drum, and
this thick drum is trimmed with a co-ordinating ribbon/s.
Some of our
cakes have glitter added. This is a non-toxic glitter, which is safe to use on
cakes for added ‘bling’! All cakes come with a warning of the use of nuts in
the kitchen, and the warning of inedible decorations and food-grade posy picks
for flowers. The cakes are then packaged in cardboard boxes for protection
Createabake we pride ourselves on the quality and the taste of our cakes; thus
ensuring that you enjoy the taste and the visual impact for the occasion. It is
very pleasing to have people coming back again and again for all occasions and
passing on details to friends and family. I have had many great comments on my
work, which are whole-heartedly appreciated, as it is my passion to produce
works of art…
this passion, I love producing cakes and pieces for competitions as I can use my
artistic thoughts and produce some unusual crafted items. You can see some of my
pieces on the sugarcraft page of this website
of my passion for sugar-crafting I have now started teaching classes and am
working towards becoming a fully trained sugarcraft demonstrator for the
Sugarcraft Guild. I have been so awe-struck over cakes made by fellow members
and me, I have such a passion for creation of cakes, and if I can inspire just
one person to give it a go, I have achieved my goal.
These cakes may be garnished with
inedible decorations not suitable for consumption. This includes any sugar
flowers which may contain cotton or silk stamens, wire and floristry tape thus
making them inedible.
These cakes may contain nuts or nut oil, and have been made in a kitchen in
which nuts have been used.
The flower posies or sprays may be fastened to the cake by insertion into a
food-grade flower pick which is itself inedible.
The cakes should be stored in cool, dry conditions in the boxes provided.
