Cake Sizes

BARREL SHAPED CAKES:
 

Barrel shaped cakes are taller than standard cakes, they consequently have greater visual impact.
There are approximately 4/6 sponge layers sandwiched with flavoured buttercream, covered with buttercream and decorated.
 
Due to their extended height, we insert a thin cake board in the middle for stability. They are generally served by splitting the cake in two horizontally and removing the thin cake board together with the top layers.
We recommend cake slices are not cut in the traditional triangular wedge shape but in a tall square/cube shape, commonly known as wedding cake slices. This size serving is becoming more popular as it minimises waste and provides a more appropriately sized serving, (It's OK, you can have two of these slices to make up for the smaller healthier size).
See cutting guide for how to cut cakes in wedding cake slices, 1" x "2 x 3.5"

ICING FINISHES:
 
Naked cakes are recognised by their exposed layers and minimal decoration. A naked cake has no outer layer of cream or butter-cream. which shows off the cake's natural texture and delicious fillings layered inside.
Semi naked cakes have just a thin outer layer of buttercream allowing the sponge layers to show through.
 
Fully iced cakes are fully covered in butter-cream or ganache.
