The new teacake

The new teacake

When I first fell in love with chocolate it was the shiny, glossy colour pops that did it. Those delicate shells that sparkle as though they’ve been polished, a small nibble and the liquid centre would seep out- a rich caramel or a sharp fruit. The sort of chocolate that’s meant to be admired then devoured. I wanted to mix that creativity and luxury into a teacake – whipping up a treat of soft sponge base, a fresh swirl of marshmallow, oozing soft centre and a delicate layer of hand painted chocolate.
