Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices

It’s another newbie on the cake scene, well sort of. These Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices are inspired by the Royal Wedding Cake picked by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. To be fair that isn’t the reason why these landed in the basket, they just sounded utterly delicious.  These slices have been available in Tesco for a little while and are filtering through to other supermarkets. Coming in at £1.50 a pack, each box is filled with 6 slices. Lemon and elderflower are a proven hit combination so hopes are high. They were a tad sticky and…

Mr Kipling James’ Peaches & Cream Slices

What happens when a well know cake and treat company takes inspiration from an author that sent children’s imaginations into overdrive? A whole host of aptly themed treats that’s what. Yes Mr Kipling has taken inspiration from Roald Dahl and transformed some of it’s favourites with new and exciting flavours.  From George’s Marvellous Lemon & Raspberry Whirls, Enormous Croc’s Chocolate Mud Pies and The BFG’s Strawbunkle & Cream Fancies, to name a few, I had my eyes on one thing and one thing only, Mr Kipling James’ Peaches & Cream Slices. Why? It’s purely down to the peach! Some of these…

Crunchie Friday Feeling Cake

Happy Friday! Let’s celebrate the weekend the only way I know how.. with cake! The Crunchie Friday Feeling Cake to be precise. Once upon a time Crunchie did do a birthday cake and it was glorious. Much like the Flake Birthday cake it disappeared, much to my disgust, but has recently made a return. Huzzah. This time around Cadbury have opted for less of the birthday cake angle and more of the cake for any occasion angle. In this instance however I did actually have this as my birthday cake hence my pink candles. I must say I much prefer…

Sponge Baby Sponges

I have been a follower of Sponge for a while but never actually had a Sponge myself. I have sent a couple of Baby Sponges to others for birthday’s, I think they are a pretty nifty idea and I have always got good feedback. Whilst at the Cake & Bake Show the other month I was delighted to see Sponge had a stall and I couldn’t help but buy some.   Split between Traditional, Quirky, Stars & Gluten Free, Sponge have quite an array of flavours on offer ranging from Victoria to Apple Crumble to Rocky Road and a Seasonal Special. Each…
