Strongbow Cider Theme Cake

Welcome to our "How We Baked This Cake" series, where we take you behind the scenes to see the magic that goes into creating our delicious cakes. Today, we're sharing the journey of baking a unique cake inspired by the Strongbow cider drink for a special celebration. Let's get started!

Misha’s Birthday Cake for June 24th

Planning a memorable birthday celebration often involves finding the perfect cake that not only tastes delicious but also fits the theme of the party. For Misha's birthday, we embarked on a journey to create a cake that would capture his love for Strongbow cider and impress his guests.

Initial Inquiry and Design Ideas

For Misha's birthday celebration on June 24th, we crafted a stunning cake inspired by his favorite Strongbow cider drink. The design featured intricate details that celebrated Misha's special day with a personalized message in Russian: "С Днем Рождения наш Миша! Мы тебя любим!" The cake was designed to serve approximately 30 guests and was planned for an outdoor evening celebration at a campsite, necessitating careful consideration for temperature control.

Cake Design and Recommendations

After considering several design ideas, including ones with fondant decorations which required refrigeration, we settled on a design that could be frozen to maintain its freshness until the evening celebration. Kate, being meticulous about every detail, wanted a cake that not only looked amazing but tasted exceptional. She opted for our Dolce de Leche flavor, renowned for its perfect balance of sweetness.

With logistics in mind, Kate arranged to pick up the cake on June 23rd in the afternoon. The cake, an 8” round masterpiece sitting on a 12” board, was meticulously prepared to ensure it could comfortably serve all guests. Despite initial concerns about size, the heightened design ensured it was sufficient for the occasion.

Choosing the Perfect Flavor

The next step was selecting the flavor. We provided a list of our most popular flavors, including Vanilla, Chocolate Nutella, Dolce de Leche, Pistachio, Strawberry Vanilla, Coffee, and Oreo. After some deliberation and our recommendation, Katya chose Dolce de Leche for its rich and delightful taste that perfectly balanced sweetness without being overwhelming.

Finalizing Details

To confirm the order, we required a 50% deposit. Katya promptly transferred the amount and clarified a few logistical details, such as the size of the cake and the pick-up time. We assured her that an 8” round cake, made tall and placed on a 12” round board, would be sufficient for her guests. We also confirmed the pick-up date for June 23rd.
