We’ve seen the biscuit cake become very popular in 2018.
I have been working on baking a variation of this, the number or letter layer cake, which I believe is a little more delicious than the original.
My shaped cake layers are sandwiched with Swiss meringue buttercream, and if desired, ganaches or fruit jams can be added to the layers also.
Any of my cake flavours can be used for this style of cake:
- chocolate cake
- vanilla butter cake
- lemon and blueberry cake
- coconut cake
- coconut and raspberry cake
- lime and coconut
- lemon cake
- orange cake
- red velvet cake
I would then match with the filling flavours to go with the cake flavour.
The cake is then topped with piped buttercream, which can be coloured to suit the theme of your celebration. The decorations can include all my regular decorations such as small edible flowers, chocolate, sprinkles, meringue kisses. Of course the decorations can be customised to go with the your party.
I believe this style of cake is easier to cut than the traditional biscuit cake. And, in my opinion, being created from cake it is a bit tastier than the biscuit cake!
Each number or letter is the size of an A4 sheet of paper (approximate 20cm x 28cm). It is served on a silver masonite cake board, so it is good and sturdy. If you order 2 numbers, both cakes are served on the one cake board, as in the 40th birthday cake.
The number/letter cakes start from $150.00 for cakes similar to those in this post. Double digits number cakes start from $300.00. Any custom decorations/requests may be an additional cost, so please just ask for a pricing.
So far this cake has received lovely feedback.
Thanks for visiting. Please email me if you are interested in booking one of these cakes, and be sure to include the number/s or letter/s you'd like, flavours and the date of your celebration.
