- Put the mixture in a squeezy bottle with a small nozzle or use a piping bag and snip off the end.
- Slowly squeeze the ganache around the edge of the cake, allowing it to run down the sides.
- Then squeeze the remaining amount over the top of the cake and spread with a spatula.

Nostalgic flavours are back! We’ve seen the return of the sprinkle-laden traybake, made famous by many a school kitchen, and flavours such as banoffee, raspberry ripple and Black Forest are appearing on supermarket shelves and menus across the country. It’s time for a bit of retro!
Bring a touch of nostalgia to your outlet and your bakes by adding a swirl of raspberry sauce or jam to a vanilla cake batter or buttercream. Chocolate cupcakes with a dollop of cherry jam in the middle, topped with buttercream and a fresh cherry, would look super tempting.
Excite your customers with this banoffee millionaire’s shortbread…you know they’ll love it!
“83% of Craft Bakers Association members believe nostalgic flavours will be popular in 2021”
New flavours create special bakes – think gin, rum or limoncello-soaked sponges or a dash of fruit liqueur in icing. The caramelised spiced biscuits, speculoos, are popular and lend themselves well to being crumbled on top of cheesecakes, sponge cakes or doughnuts. Alternatively, use speculoos spread to fill a cake or sandwich between cookies.
