Christmas at Wildflour Bakery

Christmas is nearly upon us and this year I have designed a bespoke range of festive cakes to add a touch of glamour to the Christmas dinner table, all of which are available to order and the full brochure is at the end of this post.

Winter Citrus & Pomegranate Martini Cake

Four layers of gloriously refreshing lemon cake, studded with poppyseeds and layered with Italian meringue buttercream, lemon and yuzu curd and pomegranate martini syrup.

Finished in semi-naked style and festooned with pipettes of pomegranate martini, this cake is a showstopper that will bedazzle any Christmas table with glamour and festive playfulness.

Gingerbread Cake with Whiskey, Dates & Pecans & topped with Cinder Toffee

Dark, spiced gingerbread cake, layered with whipped mascarpone and Italian meringue buttercream.

This cake is deliciously festive. The winter spices in the cake and the whiskey-soaked dates are juxtaposed by the cool, luscious Italian meringue buttercream & mascarpone, & the crunch of the toasted nuts & cinder toffee. This cake is perfect for serving on Christmas eve night, snuggled up warm in front of the fire with friends & family & hot tea. It beckons all the promise of the festive season.

Spiced Clementine, Whipped Ricotta & Chestnut Honey Cake

Earl Grey cake, imbued with Christmas spices & layered with Italian meringue buttercream, clementine marmalade & whipped ricotta sweetened with chestnut honey.

Frosted in textured Italian meringue buttercream & topped with segments of clementine, sprigs of rosemary & drizzled with chestnut honey.

Preserved Plum, Cognac, Ancient Grain, Star Anise & Long Pepper Cake

Preserved plums, golden raisins and plump, dried cranberries soaked in cognac, play against the nuttiness of ancient grain and the warm, sweet spiciness of long pepper & star anise.

Dressed with copper streaks of caramelised white chocolate, sultry dark chocolate and bedecked with long pepper spiced star cookies, pistachio truffles and crimson redcurrants.

Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Caramel with Tonka Bean Ganache & Freeze-Dried Raspberries

This is the ultimate Christmas treat. A full cake of decadent 70% dark chocolate brownie with a seam of sea salted caramel, and enrobed in a tonka bean ganache. The tonka brings notes of sweet almond & vanilla, with a heady base note that makes dark chocolate even sexier.

It is topped with freeze-dried raspberries, bringing a sherberty counterpoint to the rich & decadent dessert that is at once sumptuous and elegant.
