Tweet and Eat competition – Winners review!

If you haven’t entered one of my Tweet and Eat Competitions yet, keep your eyes open for the next one. Here is a review from one of my winners. Hannah entered my Tweet and Eat competition in association with Angel’s Cakes. Here’s what she won.

Hannah says:

I recently won my choice of a Giant Cupcake from the wonderful blog Your Last Mouthful.  I’ve been a fan of the blog pretty much since it started so I was super happy to have won one of her wonderful competitions!  My prize was to be made by Angel Cakes UK , a Cardiff Bay based company run by a lovely lady called Angela.  

 

I was told I didn’t have to use the prize straight away and that I could save it for a special occasion, which was perfect as my boyfriend’s birthday was coming up in September.  To celebrate we were going to New York so I called Angela with an idea of a Big Apple themed cake being made for our return. 

 

That was literally the extent of my ideas and I left it totally in her control to come up with whatever she could think of! 

WOW! did she deliver!  I received a HUGE cupcake filled with vanilla sponge, strawberry jam, cream AND Rolos, Minstrels and other yummy goodies!  She had come up with a brilliant idea of putting Hershey’s chocolate in the middle to continue with the USA theme but unfortunately I can’t bear the taste!   Awesome idea though! 

 

The decoration was amazing!!  The Giant cupcake was intricately iced with blue, white and red stars and spangled with edible glitter!  Surrounding the cake was a personalised birthday message, a Yankee’s shirt, a big apple (geddit?) and an American flag.

 

The cake came wrapped in a mass of cellophane and a huge bow – the perfect gift!

 

Last but not least all I can say was the taste was divine!!!  The sponge was so soft and tasty and although there was a lot of icing it wasn’t too much because it was the buttery kind which melts in your mouth.

 

I’m definitely going to be getting a cake from Angela at Angel Cakes UK again.  Thanks Your Last Mouthful!   

 

There are lots of competitions planned for the new year so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out!

A great family run business- Angel’s Cakes!

This week, I was lucky enough to be given a box of delicious cakes from Angel’s Cakes to review. It’s always nice to be given cakes and I couldn’t wait to rip into the box and try them.

I had four cupcakes in the box and each was beautifully decorated with sweet swirly butter icing. My favourite one had lovely bright yellow lemon flavour icing. I was also particularly impressed with the Oreo cookie cake which had half an Oreo to decorate and an Oreo cookie embedded into the base of the cake too. I thought this was a very original idea.

The cakes were well made. They were moist and flavoursome and not too heavy. The icing was very good although there was a lot of it on each cake. They most certainly are not for you if you’re on a diet! I think Angel’s Cakes are very aptly named as they have a distinct style. Pinks and yellows feature frequently as do little sugar flowers and sparkly dust. The designs are very pretty and delicate.

Family run Angel’s Cakes is relatively new, only established in March this year. They are doing very well though and already supply cakes to the North Star, the Vulcan Lounge and the Mocha Lounge and are looking to supply more. They have a monthly stall at an indoor market in The Windsor Arms in Penarth, and this Sunday they will be at Gwdihw’s Sundown Market for the first time so check them out! Angel’s Cakes also make wedding cakes and party cakes for all occasions.

Angel’s Cakes ambition for the future is to open a quaint boutique ‘coffee and a cupcake’ shop in Cardiff city centre. If their success in the last few months is anything to go by, hopefully they will be able to raise the capital to get things started!

Have a look at Angel’s Cakes website for more details and examples of the cakes on offer.

My last mouthful was: The cupcake with lemon buttercream icing
