People planning weddings and special occasions are often searching for that something special, something different, something to set the event apart and give guests something truly memorable.
The cake is the centre-piece of all weddings and birthday parties, used to official mark the celebration. Some incredibly creative, elaborate designs have graced such occasions for many years and often serves to reflect the unique characters of the protagonists. Sometimes though the design alone isn’t enough to wow the guests; a truly special cake inside all of that sugarpaste is what really gives everyone an experience to remember.
We regularly get phone calls and emails from cake decorators looking for an alternative to the traditional vanilla or chocolate sponges or fruit cakes. Because of this our head baker set to work to create a sponge cake base with a difference. He started by including some top-quality Belgian chocolate chunks into the mix to give the cake a more decadent, luxurious appeal which would suit the glamour and and pomp of any wedding. The addition of sweet orange gives the cake a wonderful aroma and a fantastic taste, completing the cake base to give a perfect alternative fit to grace any celebration.
The finished cake really needs to be tried to be fully appreciated. The combination of the high-quality chocolate and the sweet orange is a perfect one and the Belgian chocolate chunks give another dimension to the moist sponge texture.
Our chocolate orange sponge cake bases are available in a range of sizes, both round and square. To view them, click here.
