Matt stepped up and supplied a heavy chocolate delight. Not bad for a novice baker… A tidy chocolate sponge with chocolate icing topped with a selection of chocolate favourites.

And what a cake it was. Decorated like nothing we have seen so far! BIG marks mean this cake is going to be there or thereabouts come the end of the Cake Off. The sponge was perfectly made and the Skill marks reflected this… Well done Jodie!

Khanh our intern from Holland stepped up to the plate in the Cake Off and made 2 different cakes! Yes! Due to strict Cake regulations scores can only be given on one cake. So Khanh presented us with a skillfully made fluffy Lemon Mousse cake, and what a delight it was. Presentation was strong, decorated with sliced peaches and chocolate flakes, taste was sublime, a light and fluffy mousse – loved by all.

Scores were HIGH, this is going to be tough to beat.

You may be thinking that we have all gone a bit cake crazy down here, but we haven’t just been sitting around drinking tea and sampling delicious cakes Masterchef style….

A lot of hard graft has gone into our new site in our Southsea and London studios, and next Wednesday it will all come to fruition (hopefully!). A new look site, a full ilovedust brand overhaul, lot’s of fresh work, and a few surprises….. Stay tuned kids.

Henners (aka Henry aka one half of the Twins) weighs in with an admirable effort on the victoria sponge. Job done. Strawberries and raspberries were a touch.
