Cornish pasty and cake-maker Warrens Bakery has launched a new Perfect Picnic cake range, aimed at consumers looking for a treat for barbecues or afternoon tea in the garden.

The range includes a strawberry jam tart, a buttery Viennese whirl sandwiched with cream and jam, a traditional egg custard tart, finished with nutmeg or fresh fruit, and tarts filled with custard & topped with fresh fruit.  Two other items in the six-strong line-up include pink and yellow teatime Flower Fancies and a mini lemon meringue pie with tangy citrus filling.

In addition, the company has devised some new pasty flavours to complement the Perfect Picnic range, including the Ploughman’s Pasty, filled with cheese, ham & pickle, or the Picnic Pasty, featuring grilled vegetables, fresh pesto, mozzarella and sundried tomato.

And the company has rounded off the Perfect Picnic offer with a handcrafted sundried tomato focaccia with red onion, rocket and melted cheese.

Prices for Perfect Picnic products range from 60p to £1.60 and the items will be available in Warrens Bakery’s 50 stores across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Bristol.

Last month Warrens launched Cornish pasty flavoured crisps via its subsidiary The Great British Crisp Company.
