Flavours & Portions

We are more than happy at Eat Sleep Cake to experiment with combinations of flavours for both cake and icing. The guide below should help you start to think about what you want your cake to actually taste like, and what size you will need. The worst thing will be to cut the cake and find out there is not enough to feed all the guests.

 

Our most popular flavours of Cake are:

  • Squidgy Chocolate Fudge Cake
  • Fairtrade Vanilla Sponge
  • Traditional Brandy-soaked Fruit Cake
  • Organic Carrot & Fairtrade Orange Cake
  • Fairtrade Citrus Sponge

 

These can be teamed with our suggested fillings from the list below or we can discuss more individual arrangements if required:

  • Fairtrade Vanilla Buttercream (with or without locally produced Strawberry or Raspberry Conserve)
  • Green & Black’s Dark Chocolate Ganache
  • Squidgy Chocolate Mousse Filling
  • Fairtrade Lemon Buttercream (with or without Local Farmhouse Lemon Curd)

 

Please find below a table showing the average number of portions for either basic-shaped fruit or sponge cakes. These are based on what we consider to be rough average portion sizes, but obviously you know your guests best! If your cake is being served as dessert you will need to consider serving larger than average portions.
