New cakes in Cocoa

We've started selling homemade cakes in Cocoa land, here are a few pics to show you what's been on offer so far. There will be a different selection of cakes each day with much of the focus on what's in season (and chocolate of course!)

Rhubarb loves Custard, Romance Cake
-I believe rhubarb is custard's soul mate!

This tasty number was crafted using forced rhubarb which is grown by candlelight! Who'd have thought it!! I thought that sounded quite romantic, quite apt as it's nearly Valentines Day!

The fruit (and veg) used to concoct these delights comes from Sharrow Marrow on Sharrowvale Road, our most favourite fruit & veg shop round the corner from us, Nikki has a wonderful range of locally sourced produce. Her shop is a feast for your eyes! Go in if you haven't already!

Scrumdiddlyumptious Double Chocolate Muffins!

The chocolate used is Cocoa's own and of course the very best! We try to match the chocolate to the recipe, so if it is a fruity concoction then a fruity chocolate like Valrhona's Madagascan Manjari couveture will be used or if it is a nutty recipe a more mellow Venezuelan chocolate will be used.

Good old Carrot Cake !
