At the weekend we met up for our cake club at Drew Décor Store on Ecclesall Road at Banner Cross . We were hosted by interiors expert & cake lover Suzanne Drew. Our cakes were inspired by the beautiful wallpapers . We believe this is the worlds first cake & wallpaper pairing event. We ate most of the evidence. Many thanks to Suzanne who was a marvellous host providing lashings of tea & lemonade.
Here are our pairings:
Karen made a sugarfree Lemon, matcha & cardomom cake with poached lemon slices to match the citrus wallpaper , plus sharp lemon syrup to drizzle over the top.
Dave designed a bespoke tin of paint cake called Drewlux in hommage to the paint displays & R Drew Decorator. A rich fruit cake from his BeRo cookbook, a family heirloom. It had sultanas, ginger& glace cherries. 2 cakes sandwiched together with lemon curd. With fondant icing & ready to use writing icing paint drips. The letters were cut with toyshop letters.
Anne made a delicious fresh raspberry cake. It’s a Raspberry Velvet cake, made with American measurements . She added buttermilk, and fresh raspberries . The icing had fresh raspberries in it with icing sugar & butter.
Vicky made a delicious Flower themed Victoria sponge with 3 layers sandwiched with jam, and covered with lemon butter cream under fondant icing. On the fondant icing she drizzled candy melts to show the petals as drips. Candy melts are coloured buttons melted in the microwave. She made the petals on greaseproof paper & rolled them around a rolling pin to shape them.
Here are the cakey interiors and a photo of my new patented Sheffield Cake knife which I found at the Nether Edge Yard Sale trail in Sheffield.
Next we have some of the lovely wallpaper on show …
Once again thanks to Suzanne …. if you like the cakes join us
