  • Chocolate Layer Cake

    42.00110.00
    Chocolate layer cake with chocolate frosting. A crowd pleaser! Made with buttermilk and coffee (yes, a cup of coffee in each cake), it is moist, rich and wonderfully decadent. If you’re a chocolate lover, or if a chocolate lover is coming to your home, you need to have one of these. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • White Layer Cake

    42.00110.00
    This is exactly what it sounds like. It is also known as vanilla gateaux - vanilla cake and vanilla frosting. I have heard it said that this is a ‘perfect cake’ – moist and fluffy, and no pretention. When I get orders for wedding cakes, they are most often created out of this recipe. This is also a nice choice for communions and confirmations. Really elegant, simple, and delish. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • Carrot Cake

    42.00110.00
    This is carrot cake done right. So good, it was Great Taste 2019 Award winner! It’s moist and fresh because of the ingredients I use – grated carrots, pineapple, walnuts, pure vanilla and fresh Philadelphia cream cheese. Everything about this cake is scrumptious. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • Mocha Cake

    42.00110.00
    Chocolate cake with Azera Coffee Frosting. The combination of coffee and chocolate is too delicious not to put on the menu. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • Coffee Walnut Cake

    42.00110.00
    A traditional favourite, coffee-flavoured cake with walnuts. In fact, the Azera Coffee Frosting alone has tied (along with Browned Butter Frosting) for my all-time favourite frosting. Absolutely delicious. Note: Contains walnuts. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • Fresh Apple Cake

    42.00110.00
    Another sumptuous cake that uses produce.  I start with a pound of sliced tart apples for each batch. Its flavour is beautiful, and for me, the Wow Factor is in the frosting. It has a mouth-watering Browned Butter Frosting, which is one of the best-kept secrets in cooking or baking. It does something magical to whatever it’s added to. This is a lush cake with a bit of cinnamon and a lot of pecans. Indulge with this. I promise you will be glad you did. Note: Contains pecans. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”, please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • A gorgeous dessert for any day of the week or special occasion. There is not a lot of sugar in this recipe, so the chocolate frosting balances it out beautifully.  Yellow Butter Cake is dense, moist and custard-y, and not a typical sponge cake. For those who feel that a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting would be too much, this is an inviting alternative. Featured on Ireland AM!

  • Coconut Cake

    42.00110.00
    They are so delicate and gorgeous. I love coconut, and I love a good cream cheese frosting, so for me it’s an irresistible combo. Their batter is made with egg whites – the result is a light and beautiful cake that melts in your mouth. If you would like a short written message on the cake, such as "Happy Birthday" or "Congratulations", please include it in the Special Instructions box below. Free of charge.
  • Salted Caramel Cake

    42.00110.00
    This cake starts off with a vanilla cake base. It is frosted with salted caramel frosting, and then drizzled with salted caramel sauce. Yum!

  • Red Velvet Cake
