Flavours

At Delicieux Cakes we believe a cake should taste as good as it looks. All our cakes are baked from scratch. We use free range eggs, real butter and high quality preserves and no preservatives.

The  cakes are layered with luscious vanilla flavoured Swiss Meringue buttercream. Iced cakes are covered with high quality white chocolate ganache followed by a thin layer of  quality sugarpaste.

By default we offer the following cake flavours but other requests are welcome:

Vanilla Sponge

The gold standard in cake and the firm favourite. Recommended with raspberry conserve or strawberry compote.

Zesty Lemon Sponge

A perfect choice for a summer wedding. Lovely with tangy lemon curd or tropical passionfruit coulis.

Raspberry White Chocolate Sponge

Reminiscent of spring, a delicate raspberry sponge layered with raspberry conserve and white chocolate ganache buttercream.

Bakewell Sponge

Another old favourite, almond sponge speckled with cherries. Layered with vanilla buttercream and decadent Amaretto infused cherry conserve.

Pina Colada Pineapple Cake

A tropical masterpiece. Coconut sponge layered with a boozy pina colada pineapple curd and vanilla buttercream. Drizzled with flavoured rum syrup.

Blueberry Buttermilk Sponge

Vanilla sponge dotted with blueberries; wonderfully layered with lemon curd.

Dark Chocolate Sponge

A moist chocolate cake, delicious with raspberry conserve, citrus curd or salted caramel. For a richer cake, consider adding a layer of dark chocolate ganache buttercream.

Chocolate Mint Sponge

Dark chocolate sponge layered with mint chocolate and caramel. This is reminiscent of the famous South African Peppermint Crisp Tart.

Red Velvet Sponge

For a trendy alternative, choose this dark red chocolate sponge cake. Recommended with strawberry conserve and white chocolate ganache buttercream

Carrot, Pineapple and Walnut Sponge

A rustic fruity cake. Delicious when combined with lemon curd or mandarin conserve.

Sticky Toffee Cake

Like sticky toffee pudding. A caramel date sponge layered with caramel sauce and vanilla buttercream, infused with brandy syrup.

Raspberry, Pistachio and Rose Sponge

Raspberry and pistachio sponge layered with raspberry conserve and delicately flavoured rosewater buttercream.

Boozy Dark Fruit Cake

A dark moist fruit cake with raisins, cherries, walnuts/almonds and candied orange peel. Topped with brandy syrup.

 

For some variety, try a different flavour sponge for each tier.

All our cakes contain gluten, eggs and dairy products. Please note we can provide a nut free version of our carrot and fruit cakes, but all cakes might still contain traces of nuts.

Unfortunately, we do not provide egg free cakes at this time. Gluten and dairy free cakes may be ordered on request. Gluten free cakes might still contain traces of gluten since we don’t have a separate gluten free kitchen.
