To achieve the clean, sharp lines that are the signature style of Bellissimo Cakes we use either a layer of rich chocolate ganache or marzipan underneath the sugarpaste layer. They both provide a firm yet delicious foundation for us to apply the sugarpaste and enable us to attain super sharp edges on our cakes.
We use only fresh, high quality ingredients including real butter and free range eggs and follow tried and tested recipes that produce successful results every time.
All sponge cakes are 12cm in height with four layers of sponge and three layers of filling. They are then covered in ganache and finished with sugarpaste. The ganache filling layers can be combined with Swiss meringue buttercream for a light velvety texture. Fruit cake is covered with marzipan and sugarpaste.
