Lucy's Cake Artistry Twyford Winchester - HOMEMADE CAKE SELECTION

 

Each one of my cakes is unique – both inside and out. As well as creating bespoke designs in my studio in Twyford for clients in Winchester & Hampshire, I often devise brand new cake flavours that complement each other and the design of the cake or reflect the personality & favourite tastes of the recipient.

All my cakes are baked to order and handmade by me using only the best quality ingredients. This is a selection of the most popular cakes I have produced, but there are an abundance of flavour combinations that can be used and I have even produced tiered cakes with a different flavour on every layer! The flavour of my cakes is so important to me that I feel the fillings deserve their own page so for more information click here

As I am committed to always producing the best flavours and working towards my clients exact cake requirements, I have also become a specialist in special dietary requirements which you can see here

Fruit Cakes
The secret to my traditional fruit cake is combining the finest French glace cherries, sultanas, currants & Californian raisins with my freshly chopped prunes, apricots & Medijool dates & soaking them in French brandy for 72 hours.

The fruit is then combined with freshly squeezed lemon & orange juice, lemon & orange zest and mixed with Mauritian Molasses, light brown sugar, free-range eggs, butter, spices & chopped almonds before being slow baked for a minimum of 3 hours.
