Exquisite Handmade Cakes has launched a range of reduced fat cakes.

They are said to be ideal for coffee and tea shops, pubs and catering outlets who wish to offer a luxurious yet ‘lower fat’ option to their customers, especially over the British summertime.

Designed, crafted and baked by experts in the Exquisite Handmade Cakes bakery, the range includes a light and fluffy Victoria Sponge Cake, fresh and zesty Lemon Drizzle Cake and a dark and sumptuous Chocolate Cake. All are firm favourites in Exquisite’s classic cake range.

Each cake has the same luxurious flavour and beautiful taste as Exquisite’s originals, the company claims.

However, both the icing and the sponge are reduced fat versions of those in Exquisite’s standard range of cakes and baked goods, with each cake containing 40% less fat. The range also contains 50% less saturated fat.

Available in three traditional flavours, Exquisite’s reduced fat range of cakes includes:

  • Chocolate Cake: A dense, moist and rich chocolate sponge cake. It is filled and with smooth chocolate icing and dusted with a light sugar on top
  • Victoria Sponge: A light and fluffy vanilla sponge which is filled with scrumptious raspberry jam and asmooth vanilla flavoured cream. The cake is topped with a light sugar dusting
  • Lemon Drizzle: A light and zesty lemon infused sponge. A layer of soft lemon cream runs through the middle of the cake which is finished with tangy lemon curd and lemon icing

The range has been specifically designed for caterers requiring the highest quality, beautifully presented and cleverly innovated cakes for their clientele. Each gateau is made to a traditional recipe with a modern twist. They are crafted by hand in Britain using the finest ingredients – for exceptional flavour and texture.

Viv Parry, founder of Exquisite Handmade Cakes, said: “If you are looking for a lighter life but still want the taste of luxury, give our reduced fat cakes a try. They’re a no compromise, no guilt route to delicious hand-baked cake.

“Each cake has the luxurious flavour and high quality you would expect from an Exquisite cake. However, we have re-crafted both our icings and sponges to be ‘reduced fat’ versions of those in our original range. We hope that they will allow our customers’ clientele to enjoy an indulgent summer – in a lighter way.

“As with all of our products, when designing our reduced fat range our ethos has been simple. We want to hand-make the products with the finest ingredients to the highest possible standard. We hope that people will agree that they look delicious and taste utterly exquisite.”

As with all Exquisite Handmade Cakes, each cake is available in pre-portioned or uncut, ambient or frozen formats. When cut, each cake serves approximately 14 portions.
