You'll never guess what? Yes, that's right Abbie's Angel Cakes have released seasonal cupcakes for the Halloween/Thanksgiving season! The seasonal cupcake collection is compromised of a chocolate orange cupcake and a pumpkin spice flavoured cupcake. To say they were delightful is a complete understatement! I absolutely adored these, a wonderful collection for a halloween baby like myself. The best thing about the whole package, is the fact that Abbie offers a postage service and I received these via Special Delivery, making it very convenient for clients who want the luxury of her cakes but cannot travel. Below will be a review, her website, where to find her on social media and exemplars of her work!
* 4/5 STARS
The sponge was topped with a fluffy orange buttercream, a light glitter spray and a piece of Terry's chocolate orange. I appreciated the fact the presentation was simple, neat and relevant to the theme.
*4/ 5 STARS
I really enjoyed the taste of the sponge. It was accurate to the description, with a chocolate orange taste ...the chocolate being on the predominately rich and darker side. It was fluffy and well complimented by the buttercream icing that was actually vanilla in flavour and coloured orange, which meant that the cake was not overpoweringly citrusy.
I thought the cakes tasted great overall and enjoyed the creativity in flavour! The only reason I did not award it a 10/10 is just because, I would have loved a little more added moisture to the sponge.
PUMPKIN SPICE FLAVOUR
The reason I give this cake a 5/5 is because of the character this cake had through its presentation. The use of the sweets gave more dimension and life to the halloween theme. I also loved the recreation of blood on the vanilla buttercream icing which added more to aesthetics and fun to the eye.
I really enjoyed this sponge better because its taste was predominately nutty, which I absolutely love. Compared to the chocolate orange it is less rich therefore you can consume more at one given time.
Once again more moisture to the sponge would have made the taste 5/5. The vanilla buttercream was very aesthetically pleasing and the colours worked very well with the sweets and fake blood but personally, I would have have thought some creamy red icing would have been more complimentary especially as this is a spice flavour cake. However, this is just a personal suggestion...the cakes are lovely!
