Sampling



The lovely people at The Box Bakery brought in some free cakes for my team to taste last week after I wrote about their site the other week. There are a lot of the team partaking in some giving up of treats for lent, but it was deemed rude to overlook FREE cake. {So easily swayed!}


Can we just take a minute to look at how amazing those cake look. The camera can't begin to do them justice. We didn't even start eating them until we'd looked at them for a good 10minutes. 


So left the right we had;

  • Mrs Mocha - MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE FILLED WITH DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS TOPPED WITH A CREAM AND COFFEE BUTTERCREAM, CHOCOLATE WAFER STICK AND DUSTED IN COFFEE.
  • The Limelight - TASTY KEY LIME CAKE TOPPED WITH TANGY LIME CURD AND TOPPED WITH A SWEET CITRUS MERINGUE
  • OMG - DELICIOUS & MOIST VANILLA CAKE TOPPED WITH A STRAWBERRY AND PINEAPPLE BUTTERCREAM WITH A SPRINKLE OF POPPING CANDY...ITS CRAZY!

In the interests of making sure this was a fair tasting we cut the cakes into quarters and sampled a little bit of each of the cakes. 


The OMG's were the first stop, and I wish I had snapped a picture of the inside of them- there was an amazing swirl of purple, but they were eaten way before I thought to take a picture. The popping candy is a super fun touch too. 


I have to say 'The Limelight's were my overall favourite. Not only were they an ace luminous colour {just look at this-and it was just a iphone pic} but I love the taste of lime and they were super tangy. 


The boys in the office seemed to like the Ms. Mocha's the best though. Maybe that's because the girls swooped in and they didn't get much of a choice in their tasting, or maybe because they're a bit more conservative in their eating tastes and the fun colours scared them. 


So, the conclusion - super tasty, fantastically coloured and beautifully presented. I think if you're ordering cupcake in Leeds, the The Box Bakery ought to be near the top of your list - if just for the wow factor of the way they look.
