Birthday Cakes – for a special celebration – from elegant sponge cakes, traditional moist fruit cake, incredible chocolate creations to novelty cakes – from 1-100, celebrate with a Melanie Ferris Cake.
For a truly spectacular birthday cake my speciality is:
Chocolate Cake – a rich moist chocolate cake, each tier consisting of 3 x 1” layers of cake, drizzled with a combination of orange juice and Cointreau, layered with ganache or buttercream, and orange curd and coated in ganache. The cake is then decorated with Belgian chocolate cigarillos, chocolate ruffles made from thin shards of chocolate folded into fans while still soft and then set on the top of the cake. Between these ruffles are fixed strawberries dipped in chocolate, or handmade chocolate or sugar roses.
or for a more traditional birthday cake:
Rich Fruit Cake - made with sultanas, raisins and currants and other dried fruit soaked overnight in brandy and then mixed with English butter, free range eggs, rich dark brown sugar, ensuring the cake is moist and rich. After baking it is fed with more brandy and left to mature for up to 3 months, before being coated in a natural coloured marzipan and sugarpaste.
Vanilla Sponge Cake – a light moist sponge, each tier consisting of 3 x 1” layers of cake separated with vanilla buttercream and seedless raspberry jam, and then coated with vanilla buttercream and smoothly iced with sugarpaste.
