It's Cake Decorating Day.
Thursday 10th October is Cake Decorating Day, and we have all the cooking chocolates (couvertures), real chocolate decorations, chocolate curls & toppings for you to indulge your passion for baking and cake decorating.
But will anniversary days like Cake Decorating Day fuel the 'Cupcake Culture', some claim exist, of today's modern society? Well, that rather depends on what you make, bake or decorate?
And is a Cupcake Culture necessarily a bad thing? They're easy to make & decorate, suit an almost impossibly long list of ingredients and flavour combinations, have embraced the savoury, and have engrained themselves onto the menus of Café chains around the UK & wider world.
From wedding cakes or layered towers of brightly coloured cup cakes to more modest picnics or office celebrations, the cup-cake seems to have ousted the more humble Fairy Cake.
According to Wikipedia, the earliest recipe description of what we would refer to as a cupcake, was in 1796 which called for "a light cake to bake in small cups", with the earliest reference or use of the term cupcake occurring in an 1828 American recipe cookbook.
Whether you're baking and cake decorating for pleasure or business, whether you're making a dozen cakes or a 100, with our Next Day delivery options, running out of cooking chocolates, decorations like our chocolate flowers, or real chocolate sprinkles & toppings like our chocolate vermicelli and crisp pearls, cannot deter the pleasure of baking & cake decorating.
