Floral Christmas Cake
A festive twist on our Pressed Edible Flower Meadow Cake which was recently awarded a Great Taste Star with the judges commenting “You can not help but be impressed with the look of this stunning cake but of course, we are all about the taste. What could have been a sugar rush is not and we felt the balance has been executed well.”
Photographed by the wonderful Ros @her_dark_materials . We spent a wonderful day shooting this, deciding if it was a cake suitable for star crossed lovers to elope with or a cake Marie Antoinette might serve at an extravagant Christmas feast. Whatever your event , we think this would be sure to add something special and delicious to your your Christmas Celebrations and “Let there be cake!”
Four layers of soft and fluffy chiffon sponge, filled with fruity mulled plum jam and iced with Italian Meringue Vanilla Buttercream. Decorated with pressed edible flowers and leaves and golden lustre for a Christmas showstopper!
Our sponge cakes stand taller than industry standard at around 6 inches tall. Each cake is hand decorated by one of our skilled decorators using our hand pressed edible flowers. Each cake we create is unique and bespoke to you. Like the flowers, no petal is ever the same. We work closely with the seasons and move with the natural palettes and colours that they bring.
Our Christmas celebration cakes are only available for collection from our kitchen in SW19 or delivery to London postcodes on selected dates between 15th November and 23rd December. Please select either pick-up or local delivery on the basket page to select your preferred option from the dates available.
*Please note each cake is individually hand-made and decorated with seasonal flowers. Colours and design will vary for each individual cake from the photo shown as guidance.
What makes our floral bakes so uniquely special?
🌸 Delicious floral joy: combining two of the greatest pleasures in life, cake and flowers in one delectable package, our floral cakes are the ultimate showstopper to bring celebrations and joy!
🌼 Lovingly hand baked: our small all-female team of chefs have worked as pastry chefs in illustrious kitchens, including The Savoy, Le Cordon Bleu, Ottolenghi and Michelin-starred Le Gavroche under Michel Roux Jr, and hand bake all our floral treats using chocolate made from 100% sustainable cocoa and the finest ingredients.
🌸 Unique creations: like every flower that blooms, each floral brownie and sweet treat is unique. We work with the natural palettes and colours of the seasons to bring you ever-changing designs.
🌼 In harmony with nature: Our edible flowers are lovingly grown without pesticides here in the UK. Allowing plenty of pollinators to collect pollen before they are picked. Each flower picked promotes further blooming throughout the season, resulting in some very happy, pollen drunk bees!
🌸 Sustainably packaged: these cakes are protected by a beautifully simple and eco-friendly presentation box which can be recycled or composted after use.
🌼 Independent and artisan: Blushing Cook is an independent artisan business that proudly supports other independent businesses.
