Patisserie Valerie is hoping to secure a bigger slice of the celebration cake market with a new luxury Signature Collection.
The range features seven handmade designs with modern ombre effects, rosette cakes and understated fruit decorated options.
Each cake in the Signature Collection can be ordered with vanilla sponge with a strawberry compote filling, or chocolate sponge with a chocolate cream filling from Patisserie Valerie’s website. A personalised inscription, glitter cake toppers, candles and balloons can also be added.
The cakes are baked fresh then frozen and packed with dry ice to protect their appearance in transit. Once delivered, they need to be defrosted overnight in the fridge for a minimum of eight hours.
Here’s what the range looks like:
Floral Waterfall Cake – £85, serves 22-24
