Celebration Cakes

To celebrate the new cakes, we were given a demo by Chef Choudari on how to make the perfect cheesecake, and it really was the most mouth-watering cheesecake!

Making a Cheesecake

After our demo, we were invited to create our own cake using the same fine ingredients that they use for their cakes. Of course, ours did not look as beautiful but they tasted great, as we had good quality ingredients to work with: fresh fruit, rich chocolate ganache, freshly whipped cream and light and moist sponges.

Cake Ingredients

My cake tasted fab but looked a disaster! I definitely need more than a morning session to learn that art! I used their ingredients to create a chocolate berry cake using chocolate sponge, ganache, mousse, fresh berries, slivered almonds and a white chocolate shard.

Others were more successful decorators as you can see from the photo.
