Small Batch Bakes
Every week we’ll be dropping a small batch of limited edition cakes (and some savoury stunners), dreamt up and handcrafted by our super-talented Cake Lab team. Designed to be the crowning jewel on your display - decadent, artisan, and irresistibly Instagrammable. They even come with a handwritten display card to help you show it off.
Be ready to move quickly, we'll only be releasing a small (and we mean very small) batch of each bake. Once they're gone... they're gone!

We've given the Pain Au Chocolat a makeover - and what teams up best with chocolate? Hazelnut of course!
Introducing our Hazelnut Pain Au Chocolat - and we've developed this one to be vegan-friendly! Our sumptuous vegan hazelnut praline frangipane is slathered between and on top of a beautiful vegan Pain Au Chocolat - studded throughout with chocolate chunks and topped with heavily toasted flaked hazelnuts. We can't stop eating this one, and are SURE this will go down a storm on any counter!
This week's Small Batch is a wonderfully delicate raspberry and almond sponge, drizzled with a beautiful rose syrup and perfectly piped with a pistachio praline frosting.

We used a modern day flavour combo - Cookies and Cream - to create a next level Small Batch bake this week!
Our indulgent chocolate fudge cake has been made with dark cocoa powder to give it a real 'Oreo-style' chocolate flavour, and baked with large pieces of creamy white chocolate throughout for contrast.

Our deliciously tart homemade rhubarb jam is sandwiched in between two deliciously light vanilla sponges. Each slice is lovingly piped by hand with the creamiest white chocolate cremeux, a luxurious patisserie-style custard frosting and drizzled with pink rhubarb syrup.
Finally, we delicately balance a white chocolate curl on the top and added a sprinkle of pink rose petals for an extra touch of colour. The perfect blend of tart rhubarb and sweet creamy white chocolate.
Our scrumptious sticky toffee sponge is loaded with chunks of gooey dates and generously soaked in a mix of rum and espresso. But that's not all – each slice is crowned with a divine toffee frosting that's piped to perfection and finished with a drizzle of irresistible coffee, rum and caramel sauce, toffee pieces, and sparkling gold-dusted coffee beans. It's the ultimate treat for any sweet tooth!
We drew some inspiration from a classic cocktail - the Tom Collins - and transformed it into a cake that deserves its own day of the year!
We start with our deliciously moist and light lemon sponge and soak it in a stunning gin and elderflower drizzle. Then, we piped it with a flurry of tangy lemon cream cheese frosting, and drizzled with tart lemon curd - to top it all off, we sprinkled the top with candied lemon shavings and pretty blue cornflower petals. Gin, elderflower and lemon is a match made in heaven - both in cocktails and cakes - and this week's Small Batch showcases this perfectly!
A moist lemon and buttermilk sponge with whole blackberries baked throughout. Drizzled with a limoncello, bay and thyme syrup, and topped with a beautiful hand-piped blackberry cream cheese frosting.
Decorated with freeze-dried blackberries, candied lemon, and thyme.
If you’re looking for a twist on a classic carrot cake, our version of ‘bolo de cenoura’ might well be the answer. Made with rich condensed milk and chocolate soak, this wonderfully spiced cake uses carrot puree and is infused with nutmeg and cinnamon for a carnival of flavours.
Finally, each slice is topped with a fluffy and creamy condensed milk buttercream on one side and smooth dark chocolate ganache on the other - then finished with a sprinkle of marigold and safflower petals!
We've transformed our rich and fudgy chocolate cake into a delightful Easter beauty!
To start, we created a white chocolate buttercream that's naturally coloured duck-egg-blue - then meticulously piped it onto each slice. To add a little Easter magic, we've topped each slice with mini-eggs and chocolate shavings, giving it the perfect Easter Egg vibe.
Chocolatey through and through this will be a real crowd-pleaser and perfect for the Easter weekend!
