    Soft, sweet and perfumed, this whimsical cardamom rose and rhubarb cake (pictured) should be made with a tangy rhubarb jam to cut through the sweetness of the sponge and cream filling. Decorated with roses, it really is a thing of beauty, and what’s even better is it tastes just as delightful as it looks.
    We have plenty of recipes to suit everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or a seasoned baker, you’ll find a recipe that suits both you and the occasion.

    If you want to try your hand at something a little more involved, why not give our salted caramel and hazelnut cake a go – it’s a really sophisticated cake that takes a bit more skill to get just right, but it truly is worth the effort. Alternatively for something a bit more summery, our rose petal cake is really eye-catching thanks to the beautiful buttercream icing that’s done in different hues of pink.
