Blueberry Hill Cakes kitchen opening party - champagne, cake and more cake

Friday, 25 May 2012

The lovely Rachel and Ella from Blueberry Hill Cakes were kind enough to invite me to the opening party for their new kitchen last night. It's an exciting time for this small company - until last month the girls were creating cakes for weddings, parties, farmer's markets and even Harrods in Ella's flat. This is their first commercial kitchen which means they can now fulfil orders in a fully kitted out space... and Ella is no longer living amongst boxes, baking tins and cupcake cases!

Rachel and Ella had made a whole host of cakes for the celebration - mini pink stacked cakes, raspberry swirled meringues, their signature chocolate brownies and, my favourite, the tiniest gingerbread men I have ever seen.

For beauty alone, the spread was impressive - especially given the girls had been in the kitchen since 6am that morning to sort that day's orders (wedding cakes, birthday cakes, afternoon tea deliveries...) Luckily it tasted pretty special too.

All washed down with lots of champagne of course.

We also attempted to decorate our own cupcakes... it started fairly sensibly until my husband got involved and created a Mr Whippy version.

And finally, here's some more pictures of their wonderful cakes, in case you haven't been drooling enough...

Rachel and Ella also specialise in delivering afternoon teas direct to your door. So you can experience the luxury of high tea - a great British institution - in the comfort of your own home. Blueberry Hill afternoon teas start from just £15pp and include scones, sandwiches, cakes, bubbly and more. Especially for the Jubilee, they will also deliver an afternoon tea direct to your picnic spot - in four central London parks... all you need to bring is a blanket! What better way to celebrate HRH's 60 year reign...

If this has whetted your appetite for cake, you can sample Blueberry Hill's delights (including a special Jubilee range of cakes, biscuits and gingerbread) in London's Wholefoods stores, or place an order through their website
