Cold Drinks and Hot Foods

Along with the variety of Baked Foods we offer, we also offer a selection of Cold Drinks.

Choose from a selection of Coca Cola branded Soft drinks and Energy Drinks, Fruit Drinks (Golden Circle) and Juices (Just Juice).

We no longer offer a selection of Dairy Farmers Milk Drinks.

If we don’t have your preferred brand or flavour, perhaps the neighboring “Friendly Grocer” will.

Perhaps you want a Pie or Sausage Roll, but someone else wants a Burger, or Fish and Chips. That’s OK, “Uncle Bill’s Takeaway” is close by as well.

Neapolitan Cake

Not to be confused with a “Napolean” or Napoleon”.

With this Sponge Cake we use a combination of “Pink, Brown, and Cream” colour’s, or another way of describing it “Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla” flavour’s.

Placed into layers with our whipped Mock Cream between.

A layer of our whipped Sugar Icing on top and normally packaged as a “Bar Cake”.

Napolean Cake

This one always causes confusion. If you do some research you will find a whole host of definitions.

Apparently this cake may not of had French origins as you may perceive. I had a quick look around on the internet myself, and found that the one we call a “French Vanilla Slice” is sometimes referred to as a  “Russian Napolean” or a “Napoleon”.

Also not to be confused with a “Neapolitan” Cake (refer to our other post) .

So what do we call a “Napolean Cake”.

We sandwich a Light Vanilla Sponge Cake between a top and bottom layer of our Puff Pastry.

To hold this together we use a coating of Raspberry/Plum Jam, and a layer of our whipped Mock Cream.

On top we Ice the cake with our whipped Sugar Icing.

This is then packaged as a bar cake.

Swiss Rolls

A treat for the family, (also sometimes referred to as a “Snake Cake”).

This Sponge Cake (“light Sponge”),  is baked as a thin layer. Rolled with a layer of our Mock Cream.

Our Flavour range:

Chocolate Sponge (with vanilla flavour mock Cream), Lemon, Mocha (Sponge and Cream flavoured), Vanilla (with a layer of Raspberry/Plum jam as well as the Cream).

Birthday Cake

Light Sponge Cake with a coating of our Mock Cream.

If you need a cake in a hurry, we usually have a 1/8 slab, ready to pack, available.

Our regular cakes are usually Vanilla, however Chocolate sponge can be ordered.

Talk to us about having one decorated to your own personal theme with your own personalised message handwritten across the top.

Our Regular standard size is a 18cm square. We describe this one as a “one eighth slab”, our next size bigger is “one quarter slab” (rectangle), “one half slab” (square), and “full slab”(rectangle).

 

Fruit Cake

We offer 2 different style of Fruit cakes, both Dark (heavy) and Light.

Although we propriety base recipe’s, we add what we consider a generous portion of Australian Sultana’s (3 Crown minimum) and Glazed Cherries (France).

We are able to supply in a range of sizes.

Normally baked as a Bar Cake, so that we have available as pieces in our shop front.

 

Lamingtons

Always a favourite for young and old.

Also being in the City with the claim that this delight is part of Ipswich’s heritage.

Using our own sponge cake, we coat each individual piece in a rich chocolate sauce, then roll in desiccated coconut.

Our Lamingtons are snack size as well we have round Cakes.

Our round Cakes normally have a layer of Jam (Raspberry/Plum) and our own Mock Cream.

We use both Vanilla Sponge and Chocolate Sponge.

Keep an eye out for our “Raspberry Dip” lamington. This is a regular piece of vanilla sponge cake, dipped in raspberry, dipped in chocolate, and rolled in coconut the usual way.

Vanilla slice (French)

Sometimes known as a “Mille-Feuille”

Layers of our own Puff Pastry, with generous layers of Creamy Vanilla Custard piped between, and a liberal topping of decadent white Fondant.

Yes, we do the “snot block” as well. ( Hey! Don’t judge us, if you do a online search it will come up).
