We just wanted to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of our readers, customers, pastry lovers and supporters!! It has been a massive push to the end but we are working hard to open a SPECTACULAR shop in the first part of 2011. Plans are going well and we are refining and improving on our product every day.
Here are some images of our seasonal work including our white chocolate snowmen, our modern take on 'Yule Log', our chocolate Christmas trees and some of our images from last year. We will post once more in 2010 in between Christmas & New Year but for now have a fantastic time and eat lots of yummy things, MERRY CHRISTMAS & lots of love Darren & Ian xxxx

Latest Wedding Cake Creation 12.12.10

Wow! What a busy month, they don't call it the silly season for nothing. We have been flat out with orders for our chocolate celebration cakes and here is a shot of one of the latest for a wedding between a lovely couple John & Helen. A summery theme of lemon, vanilla and pistachio was chosen by the happy couple. We have layered Heilala vanilla & white chocolate mousse with fresh silky lemon curd and a crumbly moist Iranian pistachio sponge. It was sprayed with our signature velvet chocolate spray and finished with one of our 'avant garde' chocolate pieces. We hope John & Helen had a fantastic day, which we are sure was fantastic as it was held at Hellenic Republic (yum!), and we wish them all of the best for the future.
We will post some festive desserts and chocolate pieces that we have been working on in our next instalment, but until then, enjoy the season.
