It doesn’t matter how stunningly artistic and decadent your cake looks, it’s not doing its job unless it is intensely flavoured, beautifully light and walking just the right line between sweetness and richness.
I use the highest quality fresh ingredients for every cake I create, and everything is made from scratch and by hand. Here are some of the recent flavours that have been whipped up in the Christina May kitchen. Which is your favourite?
A gorgeously warming flavour of spiced carrot sponge with walnuts and zingy lemon buttercream.
Forget the dense, claggy fruit cake of Christmases and wedding parties past, this luxuriously boozy but light fruit sponge is soaked in brandy and left to mature for eight weeks prior to your event.
A tasty pick me up with a sophisticated and punchy coffee flavour. My rich coffee and walnut sponge is infused with espresso coffee and latte buttercream.
Rich but not too rich, this darkly delicious chocolate sponge is layered with a light mousse-like buttercream and chocolate ganache.
An absolute classic, with good reason! Light Madagascan vanilla sponge, layered with a vanilla buttercream and a choice of seedless raspberry or strawberry conserve.
These bright and zesty flavours make for a seriously moreish mouthful! Moist lemon sponge is infused with lemon zest and layered with lemon buttercream and lemon curd.
Prosecco & Raspberry
A touch of fizz brings a luxurious twist on the traditional. Try my light Madagascan vanilla sponge, layered with a Prosecco vanilla buttercream and a seedless raspberry conserve.
White Chocolate & raspberry
A pink and white delight, this cake is perfect for a summery celebration. Sweet white chocolate sponge is cut through with a fresh and tangy raspberry chocolate ganache.
Gingerbread & Whisky Caramel
If your favourite time of year is the moment when the shops are filled with pumpkin spiced everything; this is the cake for you! Moist layers of gingerbread are sandwiched between a whisky and caramel sauce, perfect for autumnal and winter weddings.
Chocolate Orange & cardamon
This is a gorgeous trio of flavours. Chocolate and cardamom sponge is layered with light, tangy orange buttercream. It’s rich, intense, sweet and fragrant all at once.
Ready for a hit of pure indulgence? This luxurious cake is delectably sweet without being sickly. With just the right bite from the salt, it’s ooey-gooey and totally moreish.
Blueberry & cinnamon
The combination of flavours here is the cake equivalent of a really good hug. Warmly spiced and tartly fruity, this cake is autumnal and proud of it.
Coconut & Lime
Giving a nod to the tropics, this zesty little number packs a real punch when it comes to flavour. Light, fluffy coconut sponge is layered with the bright tang of lime curd. Exotic and comforting in equal measure, this cake is a real crowd pleaser.
