Curly Whirly Cake…

Birthday Tea

For C’s B-Day my Sister was kind enough to lay on a lovely afternoon tea.  We were so spoilt.  Check out the comedy cheese and pineapple sticks…on BBQ skewers as she had no cocktail sticks.

She also bought a Curly Whirly Cake from Konditor & Cook as she works right next to Borough Market.  It was DELICIOUS.  I’ve not heard of it before, but learnt it’s quite a famous cake and weirdly, when we were watching Eurovosion later (it’s a tradition and cannot be missed) the hosts gave the UK entry a Curly Whirly cake they’d had shipped over, knowing it was her favourite.  I googled it to find there is a recipe here, it doesn’t sound all that special, but I can recommend it highly, I’ll be having a go next time cake is needed in this house 🙂

Oh better still, if you live in the UK, you can order yourself one here!!

That’s all…just felt the need to share.

  1. How kind of your sister Beth, the bday spread looks amazing! Happy belated bday to Charlie, your boys look so chuffed in that pick 🙂 that cake looks very tasty, am going to check out the recipe now. My favourite type of cake is always chocolate so am very interested 😉 Hope your having a lovely weekend, safxxx

  2. What a fine feast – and oh the recipe for that cake was published in the Telegraph a few weekends ago and I have it firmly in my online trove of recipes now, so one day I may even taste it! 🙂

    • I looked at the recipe and it seemed fairy normal for a chocolate cake so I’m wondering if it’s just the technique they use because it really was a very delicious, moist, cake. I’d love to know how copying it turns out – might also have a go, but baking isn’t my strong point (doesn’t stop me trying, I should add). Bx
