Taste

At Amanda Earl Cake Design we are passionate about using the finest quality ingredients. We know it is insufficient for a cake simply to look good – it has to taste good too. In our five-star rated kitchen (the highest Food Standards Agency rating attainable) we use the most natural unadulterated products and fruits to flavour our cakes to create a little taste of heaven!
cake ingredients

We hand make from scratch all our cakes, ganaches, pralines, salted caramel, fruit curds, sugar syrups and buttercreams, putting as much effort into our flavour as we do our decoration to provide you with the freshest, most delicious cakes possible.

Wherever possible, our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers here in rural North Yorkshire. We always use local free range eggs laid by Ian Taylor’s hens at Burton Leonard, local seasonal fruit and locally-grown Yorkshire Lavender. So, when you bite into one of our cakes you may take pleasure in the thought that you are supporting local hard-working producers.

For those ingredients not available locally we always make sure we source the finest quality, such as fair-trade raw cane sugar, organic milk, real British butter, organic Madagascar bourbon pure vanilla extract, Carma Massa Ticino sugarpaste, Callebaut couverture chocolate and the finest organic fair-trade cocoa.

Our sponge cakes contain four layers filled with buttercream and fruit conserve/home made fruit curd and are coated in couverture Belgian white chocolate ganache/complementary citrus Belgian white chocolate ganache, then premium sugarpaste. Our traditional rich fruit cake is matured for a minimum of three months before being coated in luxury almond paste and premium sugarpaste.

Allergies & special dietary requirements

Allergens: our cakes contain wheat, eggs and dairy, certain flavours contain nuts and all are baked in a kitchen which uses nuts. We offer cakes without nuts as an ingredient but do not have dedicated workspace and equipment for the preparation of nut-free cakes so, whilst we take steps to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that our cakes do not contain nut traces.

We can offer cakes made without gluten-containing ingredients but as we use wheat in our kitchen we are unable to guarantee they are gluten-free.
