What did you get?
Mostly As: go for our sticky iced buns in apple, cinnamon and caramel, cinnamon chocolate fudge and classic cinnamon sugar
Rich, bold flavours and doughy, fluffy textures – these are just some of the essentials when it comes to your dessert; you’re a shameless fan of indulgence accompanied by confident seasoning. Puddings peppered with spice are perfect in your eyes – every bite should slightly tickle the back of your throat.
Mostly Bs: go for our loaf cake in banana, chocolate or citrusy lemon
Look, when it comes to the sweet stuff there’s no point in messing around; classic tastes are classics for a reason. You’re not about fuss or frills – good, honest flavour never disappoints. When baking, you tend to stick to the tried and tested recipes... and why wouldn’t you? They appeal to the masses. A nice cup of spinneysFOOD English Breakfast Tea sits perfectly alongside our loaf cake; light sponge in three moreish flavours? Yes. Please.
Mostly Cs: go for our chocolate mousse cake
Let’s face it, you aim to impress and don’t understand people who shy away from the spotlight. You like to wow in everything from your attire and home décor, to your culinary choices. And dinner parties were meant to be hosted. Introducing, the classiest of chocolate cakes; rich mousse and dark ganache prove a sleek and show-stopping party piece.
Mostly Ds: go for our chocolate cake slices
You appreciate the company of others but ultimately, you like to enjoy sweet delicacies on your own. Those stolen five minutes in between school runs, meetings and the weekly shop were meant for a cup of coffee and a delicious dessert you haven’t had to prepare. It’s not that you’d eat the whole cake if you were to buy it (well, actually...), it’s just that individual slices offer more than just an awakening of the taste buds, they offer the chance to dine in peace. Plus, with no one there to witness it, you can devour as you desire. YUM.
