Cakes for Every Season of the Year
When it comes to a sweet treat, at Patisserie Valerie, we pride ourselves on delivering luxurious cakes for every season of the year. If you are looking for the perfect cake to complement a spring party, a summer barbeque, an autumnal celebration, or winter merriment, we have put together a list of the best cakes for every season of the year.
Cakes for Spring
Spring is a wonderful time! We can appreciate the sun for longer, the Easter bunny hops in for chocolate cake, and Mother's Day celebrations are enjoyed. We're not sure about you, but we wouldn't dream of hosting a spring party without a cake.
A Spring Patisserie Favourite
What is better than one cake at a get together in spring? Ten cakes! Here at Patisserie Valerie, we offer a Spring Patisserie Box filled with delicious slices of a selection of cakes, including tiramisu slices and ruby chocolate slices. Both are a great spring treat to enjoy with a cup of tea in the garden.
This Spring Box is perfect for a family get together, a Mother's Day celebration, or a gathering of friends. For more information on this spring favourite, see the Spring Patisserie Box. Slices are subject to availability.
Cakes for Summer
As summer approaches, the temperature rises, and we tend to enjoy lighter, more refreshing flavours. This is no exception for cakes. There is a whole range of cakes to be enjoyed in the summer sun. Just to name a few, a summer afternoon tea, tasty berry cakes, and of course, refreshing lemon cakes.
Summer Afternoon Tea
The perfect summer afternoon pick-me-up. Afternoon tea is a popular summer tradition, and we can see why! A luxurious mix of sweet and savoury treats. Each light and delicious, afternoon tea is excellent during the summer months as it doesn't leave you feeling lethargic.
Madame Valerie's afternoon tea consists of delicious scones, mini gateau's, strawberry and cream choux, and more!
Refreshing Summer Lemon Cake
Lemon is very well known for its bright colour and refreshing flavour. If you are hosting a party and planning to impress this summer, we suggest treating yourself and your guests to a Lemon Candy Stripe Gateau. This zesty, handmade vanilla sponge cake is beautifully decorated with yellow striped French fondant, finished with lemon macarons and elegant lemon scream rosettes. A lemon-lovers dream!
Cakes for Autumn
Orange leaves fall to the ground and scarfs are pulled out of hiding as we enjoy walks with coffee and friends. Here are just some of our cakes that are perfect to enjoy while catching up with friends, enjoying at a birthday party or as a fabulous addition to a celebration.
A Berry Good Time
As September arrives, berries including raspberries are beautifully in season. The Patisserie Valerie berry gateau is just the right amount of vanilla sponge, berries, and coated in nibbed almonds, blueberries, and raspberries.
Autumnal Treat: Carrot Cake
The ultimate autumnal cake! The carrot cake is a heavenly blend of sweet cinnamon, grated carrots, soft frosting, and crunchy walnuts. The carrot cake is a classic recipe loved by all. Especially as the days get cooler. If you or someone you love is a carrot cake fan, we suggest opting for this as a centrepiece for a celebration, a special birthday, or even a Sunday afternoon treat with the family.
Cakes for Winter
Winter cakes deserve to be truly indulgent. As winter is a time of year, we love to celebrate Christmas and enjoy valentines with an extra special person, why not find the perfect cake to accompany the festivities? The following cakes are made to be shared and loved by the whole family, your Valentine, or friends.
A Winter Favourite: The Black Forest Gateau
What a treat! A black forest gateau is a perfect mixture of delicious, whipped cream, dark cherry filling, and a mouth-watering chocolate sponge. These rich flavours are warming and perfectly lend themselves to a winter delicacy. We recommend a black forest gateau for Christmas parties, birthday parties, and anniversaries.
A Rich Red Velvet Cake
Red by name and red by nature. A red velvet cake is a wonderful wintery choice to enjoy with a loved one. Its red tones and attractive appearance make this cake a lovely option for a valentine's party, birthday celebration, or even a wedding. After all, it is the month of love!
