Want to know a little bit about me? Well, my favourite colour is black, I am well over 6 ft tall and my favourite chocolate bar is Cadbury Flake! Now some people might now have heard of it, but the adverts always went like ‘only the crumbliest, flakiest chocolate’ and I love it! But recently I posted an image of a hedgehog cake made entirely of them! So I had to wonder what sorts of cakes people could make with what is essentially the weakest chocolate bar you can buy! After all, if you so much as drop one, despite the fact that you have had it in the fridge for a while it will crumble into millions of pieces!
But what people created was way beyond what I had imagined. I saw that many use Cadbury Flake to make wedding cakes that tend to look delicious, even in pictures clicked by professional photographers from firms like Jeff Turnbull Photography. It has been observed that many people choose to have a wedding cake that is entirely covered in flakes, with crumbs inside. So with drool in the corners of my mouth, I bring you…
What is better than a cake with flake crumbles on top? What about a flake cake with biscuit fingers going around the outside! Oh my, this looks amazing for sure.
Stop rubbing your eyes because that is no illusion it is an entire wedding cake made with flakes around the outside and flake crumbs in the middle! I would be a happy groom indeed.
All those layers, all those tastes! Sadly I couldn’t find the link to make them so exactly what each layer is will have to remain a mystery! Which for me adds a little bit more excitement to an already fairly amazing dessert cake.
Simple, beautiful and most probably downright tasty! What I really liked about this one is the white chocolate shavings places on top to break up the brown colours.
The problem with wedding cakes is they are traditionally made with fruit which I hate. But what about adding the new with the old in this amazing chocolatey flakes and fruit combo! Dare I say it, but this whole cake is actually quite… beautiful!
This rather drool-worthy image shows what is, in my opinion, some of the best Cupcakes made with flakes you will ever see! And while the link just goes to a fellow WordPress blogger that was just talking about a day out in Brixton the whole blog is well worth looking over even if it doesn’t contain the recipe to make them.
What I love about these is not the flakes, not the smarties on top but just how simple they are! Nothing amazing, nothing special, just a fantastic looking cupcake.
Now, this is what I call a wedding cake! Being 6 stories high makes this chocolate flake wedding cake tower with lime roses one of the best wedding cakes I have ever seen!
But this isn’t for a wedding anniversary but one of a shop! A Virgin Megastore (remember those!) and what an amazing combo of the flakes and the strawberries. Simply stunning.
I wish! This is just about as good as it gets. Much like the Kit Kat cakes I posted about this one is a real winner and in my opinion the best ever!
