Simone's Friday Cake Bake No.8

When you have to satisfy different tastes what can you do? I made a batch of vanilla sponge cake and gave them different toppings. First up is the fresh lemon fondant with sugar flowers for those of a delicate nature.

Next up is the robust coffee fondant icing with chocolate buttons. Which do you prefer?

Fresh lemon delicate iced cakes or...................................

..........................robust coffee iced cakes with chocolate buttons.

Or would you like to sample one of each? I think that is my preferred option. Have a great weekend with lots of tea and/or coffee sipped from a delicate bone china cup or a big chunky workman's mug. Whatever your preference may be, have a good one! x

I reckon I'd go for the delicate lemon flavour in the mid-morning and the coffee for the mid-afternoon munchines. In fact, round about now!

Rosie said...

Mmm - one of each of those, please - they look lovely - hope you have a good weekend too:)

Michela said...

..I'm on a diet, but I'll do a little effort just for you and I'll sample one of each, please!

Oh my gosh, Simone!! I couldn't POSSIBLY make up my mind on this one! I simply would HAVE to try BOTH! ~tina

Well obviously it would only be fair to try one of each for a proper comparison ;-)

For me it will have to be the Lemon Iced cakes. I'm a bit like the Marmite ad with COFFEE you either love it or hate it and I'm afraid I just HATE coffee!

ginny said...

i am afraid i don't do coffee in any form so i am hoping that there will be some vanilla and lemon ones left... can't get over till the morning but hope you will save me one!... oh i wish...
a happy weekend to you x

Louise said...

A big mug for me. It's great how you have shown comparisons here. Two completely different cakes, each made out of the same mix. A big mug for me; I love delicate china, but for display only! This is where my preferences end. If you put a plate of each of these little cakes in front of me, I would have to have both! x

Ellouise88 said...

A nice bone china cup and saucer and a matching plate with one of each flavour please! You have inspired me, must go and put the oven on!

cathleen said...

I'll try three of each please! Oink! Seriously, Simone, these look better than what a bakery makes. Yummy!

I came across your blog when I hit "Next Blog". Caught the wonderful looking Friday Cake Bake and decided to read on. Then I came across your Birthday post. Happy 2nd Blog Birthday! This year is the year to really stretch things, you know, the terrible twos? Which really aren't terrible, just the age to really stretch your possiblities. I am intrigued with the Bonne Maman jam jars. Are they unique to the UK?

Simone said...

Hello anonymous! Bonne Maman is a French brand of jam that we can buy in the UK. I don't know what other countries sell it but I would think that it is widely available in europe. Thanks for your interest and comment too.

I think to be perfectly honest that I would have two of each...a little greedy i know, but hey ho, hope you don't mind. Both look absolutley scrumdiddlyumptious :o)
