Allergies

We no longer cater for allergies sorry. New MPI health and safety rules will make it difficult for anyone except a full allergy-free specialist kitchen to cater for allergies and intolerances without risk of liability and litigation. We do not do vegan cakes. For Indian vegetarian cakes please contact KALA BHULA (09) 8363817 – PLEASE NOTE KALA HAS HER OWN DESIGNS AND PRICES

CAKE ICINGS/COVERINGS

We do not offer buttercream covered main cakes as a choice in our humid climate (except small “smash” cakes and cupcakes). We have seen enough disasters with melted distorted cakes with other commercial firms (even in the colder weather the humidity is still able to ruin the icing) to ensure that buttercream is not included in our frostings as an option (no exceptions).

It is difficult enough handling fondant icing in our sticky humid climate without trying to wrestle with buttercream as well so it is not presented as a selection.

UNDER FROSTING

All cakes have a swiss buttercream layer under the main icing.

ALMOND ICING/MARZIPAN

We do not use almond icing (pale yellow almond icing used on English cakes as an under-layer) unless especially requested. An alternative to Almond on fruitcake is pineapple fondant (this is very popular).

Marzipan is not available in New Zealand as an option because the supply is limited and expensive.

MAIN FROSTINGS

A lot of birthday cake fondant is handmade with strawberry pink or white vanilla marshmallows (Marshmallow fondant) which is tastier than the normal commercial fondant available. We also use some pre-coloured commercial vanilla fondant in limited amounts.

OTHER FROSTINGS/MEDIUMS USED

We also use vanilla royal icing, silken glace, German dark chocolate paste , melted dark and white chocolate and light swiss meringue  frostings in limited amounts where we can to compliment the main frostings for texture and flavour (the design determines the choice).
