Now those of you that know me, will confirm that I love weddings & that I talk about weddings non stop – however, my blog today is related to a special cake… there we go, you are all thinking – we are going to discuss wedding cakes – but oh no my friends we are not!
I wanted to tell you all about a particular BIRTHDAY cake that I recently ordered, (& helped to devourer) for my partners birthday at the beginning of August. The cake that I ordered was incredibly upbeat, fun & really, really cool – (a word I do not use often).
This particular cake was aptly called the ‘Doughnut Cookie Monster Cake’ which as the name suggests, came complete with doughnuts, but also consisted of chocolate sponge, smooth & silky Oreo Swiss Meringue Buttercream, heaps of Oreo cookie crumble, Cookies & Cream chocolate bar shards with several doughnuts sitting nice & proud on top. Where was this SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS cake from, I hear you ask? Well it is from a gorgeous bijou boutique called Anges de Sucre, in Kensington. The Anges de Sucre website says that the cake I was ordering was ‘literally the BEST cake to party with’ & they were not wrong.
So the cake looked amazing, but most importantly, for my taste buds, how did it taste? Did the taste stand up to the look? – I can quite honestly say that the taste was incredible, a gastronomic party of delights, tickling your taste buds & it was thoroughly enjoyed by all who had a slice…..or 2..ok 3..OKAY 5!!!
Putting the cake aside for a moment (not that there is any left), it is important to also mention the whole ordering process. I ordered the fantabulous cake online from www.angesdesucre.com – as soon as my order had been processed, I received a brilliantly written email, to confirm that ‘the cheeky cherubs at Anges, are just too excited & getting pumped to bake & prepare my recent order’, I continued to receive these emails that made me smile, right up until the day after I collected the cake. As these little emails made me chuckle to myself, I feel that they really added an extra & welcomed dimension & a different element of customer service.
There was however, one final element that made the cake taste that bit more sweet & yummy & that was the warm, welcome reception I received at the pretty Anges de Sucre boutique in Kensington, when I arrived to collect the cake. Not only were the team in the shop incredibly friendly & the epitome of customer service, but Reshmi Bennett, the owner who trained in classical French cuisine in Paris, at Ecole Gregoire Ferrandi, was also present to hand over her wonderful creation to me with the biggest, warmest & most genuine smile. She offered me some fantastic advice, on how to look after the cake until it was presented & eaten, as well as taking the time to ensure that I was happy with the product.
Now just to make it real for Steven Pellier, I am going to take it back to weddings just for a moment. Anges de Sucre also create show stopping macaroon towers, drop dead gorgeous wedding cakes, gifts, unique favours & sweet treats – I couldn’t keep it away from weddings for too long now, could I!!
