Bravo for our super bakery staff !

Apley Smoked Pheasant also won 2 stars this year. We have previously won awards for many other products including our mince pies which fly off our shelves at Christmas time.

Table 4: Attractive home-made looking cake. High quality ingredients. Golden cake. Perfectly cooked and easy to cut. Moist to the look and to eat. Well balanced fresh lemon favour and while the icing is very sweet its proportion to the cake is good. “please can I have some more”.

Table 99G: A good little cake, with a homemade look and a good, egg-yolk, colour to the sponge. The icing is a little clumsy but we love the zest!  The aroma is very fresh in lemon zestiness.  The sponge is soft and very buttery.  It feels as if the sponge has been soaked in lemon syrup. We love it where the syrup is intense under the icing. As a mouthful – icing, lemon, butter – this is delicious. A tasty, honest cake.

Table R2: A very attractive cake with a delicious citrus zingy icing that is the making of this cake. The cake itself lacked the zingy flavouring that we were hoping for and had a slightly synthetic aftertaste. More of that delicious flavour throughout would make this a really spectacular cake.

Table 2: Rich and lemony and moist and ‘curdy’.  This rustic looking cake does exactly as it says in the description.  Delish!
