Michel’s have recently launched a new surprise cake range where customers can design their own cake.
Gastrology were pleased to be given the opportunity to design our own cake for an extra special 60th birthday party recently.
The process is simple...
Step 1 - Choose your base size
We opted for the tiered cake as we had around 30 guests attending the party. The cake fed them all comfortably but if you've got some sweet tooths in the crowd, Michel's conservative estimate of 16-28 serves is a great guide.
Step 2 - Pick your flavour
Being true chocoholics, we could not go past the chocolate sponge. It was wonderfully fluffy and moist without being too heavy or dense, making it the perfect sweet end to a decadent meal.
Step 3 - Pick your toppings
Our topping choice of berries was wonderful. Featuring luscious raspberries, blueberries and strawberries, it was a wonderfully fresh addition to our cake.
Step 4 - Pick your sides
We chose the chocolate plaques to go around the side.
Step 5 - Pick your ribbon colour
To ensure our cake looked extra festive, we chose red ribbons which also matched the red from the strawberries and raspberries.
A week after putting our order through, the cake was ready for pick up from the store of our choice (Michel's Spencer St Outlet) on the day of the 60th birthday party.
Our guests absolutely adored the cake. Effortlessly elegant and delicious, we found our guests commenting on the beautifully made layers, the airiness of the chocolate sponge and the freshness of the berries.
