The whole nation is celebrating the queen's 90th Birthday and for this special occasion award winning master p√Ętissier and celebrity chef Eric Lanlard has teamed up with Tesco Finest to create the perfect birthday cake "Fit for the Queen" to celebrate the queens  90th Birthday.

The cake is a three layered cake, one chocolate and two pink velvet layers filled with raspberry conserve and covered with Madagascan white chocolate buttercream and crowned with delicate prosecco flavoured buttercream roses. The final finishing touches are given by a sprinkle of edible lustre dust.The limited edition Tesco finest Cake Fit for a Queen is available in 532 stores nationwide from 3rd to 16th June 2016 at £10.00 and it serves 14.


My friend Heidi and I were very fortunate to be invited at the first showing and tasting of this cake at a recent event hosted by Tesco Finest. We were able to sample this delicious cake and then we were given a lesson in cake decorating by EricLanlard before being set free to let our creative juices run to create our own cakes to decorate and take home.


Eric shared many useful cake decorating tips with us and it was a very creative session as Eric showed us two techniques of decoration, creating a drip effect on the cake followed by piping buttercream roses.You can see my creation below.







































All the guests created some stunning cakes in a rainbow of colours.


I would like to thank Tesco Finest for inviting me to this event. All views and opinions are of my own personal experience of the event.
