Flavours & Ingredients
Victoria Made is happy to hold the highest Food Standards Agency rating of 5.
I use high quality ingredients, from Valrhona chocolate, good quality vanilla pods, cow and goats butter, to duck eggs rather than chicken for exceptional flavour.
Every element of your order is handmade apart from the fondant covering, from the fruit compote fillings to the buttery citrus curds.
I use Swiss Carma Massa fondant, which is excellent quality and performs well in terms of covering and taste.Unless otherwise requested I use a ganache made with Valrhona chocolate under the fondant for a firmer finish, especially in warmer weather and traditional marzipan for the fruit cakes. Buttercream layers can be traditional recipe, Italian or Swiss meringue. It’s important to me that I avoid artificial products in my diet and I uphold this philosophy in my baking for you. I do use a certain amount of additives such as good quality edible colours, however these are generally used on decorative parts of the cake only.
