We were delighted to auction this beautiful cake in a twenty-four hour instagram auction! All the
proceeds went to the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal.
The cake was created by our talented colleague Charlotte @saltysirenstudios to celebrate artist Emma William’s solo show in our St. Ives gallery. The design is inspired by Emma’s painting ‘Cottage Garden Flowers in The Bird Pot,’ which in turn is inspired by House of Hackney’s new Hollyhock wallpaper and fabric range!
Charlotte describes, “The cake is a vanilla shortcake as it’s quite dense and has a biscuity taste to it. There’s raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream in between the 3 layers, and it was finished with a layer of dark chocolate ganache under the vanilla fondant.
