A Cake for the Queen!!

May 24, 2011

As most of you know…the Queen of England had a visit to the Emerald Isle…A part of her trip included a visit to The English Market…Since Diva has expanded, I took the plunge and took over a vacant space across the street and down the road…will write more about the later, The bakery has been trying to expand its wholesale catering business, focusing on desserts to cafe’s and coffee houses..one of our new clients is The Sandwich Stall in The English Market…I had been thinking about contacting them to see if we should do something amazing…like a tower of queen cakes..but since they are new clients I thought I would leave it…in the end, Rachel, one of the partners of The Sandwich Stall, rang me the day before the Queen was to arrive and said she had been thinking of ordering something special from us, as the Queen would be passing their stall! So I said…”Of course we will do something!”…but we had to get it to them in 5 hours!

I quickly sprang into action…Taylor and Kasia were baking like mad…filling orders, baking for cafe and new bakery…so I quickly whipped up a red velvet..while trying to stay outta their way..into the oven it went..30 min later, we had it cooling …then into the freezer for a quick chill…Kasia had cream cheese frosting made…Taylor then worked his magic by frosting the cake at maximum speed…a quick bit o decoration…and raced up to Cork before security took over the English Market..Rachel and Co. were happy with the cake…AND it was spotted on RTE..We are hopping that the Queen noticed it as she passed…

PS…if anyone is friends with the Queen…could they please ask her if she liked the cake?
