Nostalgia

August 25, 2011

To be perfectly honest what can beat a pot of tea and a cake on a dreary day in London? With Autumn practically on our doorsteps we have been baking cakes that our Grandmothers would be proud of …. think luscious lemon bars and carrot cake.

Over the past few weeks in the shops our Carrot Cake, Frangipane Tarts  and Scones have literally been picking themselves up and walking out of the door, with some of the sweeter treats being ignored. I put it down to nostaglia or rather home comforts – everyone can remember baking their favourite cake on a Sunday afternoon and devouring it as soon as it was out of the oven! It is this feeling of nostalgia that we can’t seem to tear ourselves away from in the shops, everything that we have in the shops whether it be an alarm clock or sundial cake stand evokes a feeling or memory and this is what we want our cakes to do to.

So tell us what’s your favourite baking memory or receipe ..let us know and we might give it a whirl in the shops!

  1. A good old fashioned gingerbread, one that has been stored in an airtight container for a few days so the top is all sticky! You can’t beat it.

  2. Agreed! We top ours off with a maple cream YUM
