Giant Retro Biscuit Cakes ♥
When it comes to treats, I love all the old school classics like Bourbon Biscuits, Custard Creams, Jammie Dodgers, marshmallow teacakes and even those old Caramel Wafer bars with the red and gold striped packaging - anyone else remember those?! These sweet treats conjure up all sorts of fond memories from childhood and being all cosy watching TV and dunking away in a cup of milky tea!
I was amazed to discover some nifty baking tools that enable you to make giant size replicas of these fave treats - but in cake form! Take this giant Bourbon Biscuit mould on Notonthehighstreet. I know what birthday cake I want next year! This would be so yummy made with a rich chocolate sponge and maybe with some chocolate ganache in the middle!
The mould is made by the Iconic Cake company and they also do a giant Custard Cream mould too! This would be yummy with a vanilla sponge and buttercream filling.
The Iconic Cake Company also have 2 new moulds in the pipeline for a Jammie Dodger cake and a Party Ring cake! I love all of these moulds as the final result looks so much like the actual biscuit, just in giant size! I'd love to have one of each at a party, or even at a wedding it could be a fun look!
What retro treat would you like to see recreated in cake form?
