UK confectioner Fudge Kitchen has launched a limited-edition Chocolate Biscuit Cake fudge in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
It’s reported, by former Royal chef Darren McGrady, that “this chocolate biscuit cake is Her Royal Majesty the Queen’s favourite afternoon tea cake by far.” Apparently, the Royal seal of approval doesn’t stop there, as Prince William is speculated to be a firm fan too – even having it as the groom’s cake at his wedding to Kate Middleton.
Chocolate Biscuit Cake is made using crushed rich tea biscuits, which are stirred through a decadent rich dark chocolate cake before being topped with a layer of chocolate ganache and left to set in the fridge for 3 hours.
The innovative product development team at Fudge Kitchen have turned this Royal afternoon tea delicacy into a brand-new fudge flavour which will be sold online and, in their shops, up and down the country. It will be made in the traditional slab fudge format and also as a butter fudge bite which will be retailed on their website.
The Platinum Jubilee Chocolate Biscuit Cake flavour is made using a Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt fudge, swirled with crushed biscuit from Kerry’s Gluten Free Bakery based in Deal, Kent. Fudge Kitchen partnered with a UK based baker who could provide them with gluten and palm oil free biscuits, in line with their gluten free policy and sustainability missions. The final touch is a dusting of edible platinum shimmer, giving a firm nod to the Platinum Jubilee with every slice.
