Tried & Tested: Konditor & Cook’s summer cake range

Tried & Tested: Konditor & Cook’s summer cake range


You can always count on Konditor & Cook for the perfect treat, so when a friend’s birthday picnic called for something summery and special, we knew just the place to find it.

On dark and wintery days you can see us huddled at the cake counter of the Spitalfields branch, debating whether to buy a cup of decadent hot chocolate or the perfect gooey brownie (and let’s get real, we normally end up with both), but we’d heard rumous the summer offering’s even better.

Arriving on the website, we were overwhelmed by the huge range of bejewelled cakes, brownies and muffins. Their summer range is beautiful and bright, sunshine yellow lemon cheesecakes vying for attention over deep red berry tarts. Eventually we opted for the Very Berry Victoria (£26), indeed as regal as its namesake.


Calling ahead to arrange a pick up time was a breeze, and when it came to picking up the cake, the friendly staff invited us to check it over before we left the shop. A tower of perfectly ripe summer berries and fresh cream drew a gasp – simply magnificent in stature, we couldn’t wait to try it.

Hours later, the birthday girl was overjoyed, and we can report it tastes as good as it looks, with lighter-than-air sponge cake (made with organic eggs) spread with English Preserves raspberry jam and lashings of fresh cream.

Our only issue was transporting the cake to the party, worried we’d damage it as we rushed through central London. Oh, but Konditor & Cook have thought of everything – you can have the entire range delivered, too. Just call their cake hotline (yes, cake hotline – god, we love this shop) to order yours.
