It may be taking it’s time, but Summer is slowly starting to set in and BAKO sees this as a great opportunity for the North-West’s bakers to start experimenting with fresh new Summer flavours.
As the sun has started to creep in, BAKO’s Twitter feed has slowly started seeing some tempting tropical flavours appear, much to our joy. Amongst the display of mouth-watering snaps on Twitter, we’ve spotted a few ideas that we thought could inspire your summer menu.
Paradise Cakes Strawberries and cream go hand in hand with the traditional Great British Summer, becoming especially popular when Wimbledon season approaches. After all, what could be more quintessentially British than a light and airy Victoria sponge, filled with jam and cream and adorned with fresh strawberries? These two complementary ingredients are also the basis of a variety of tasty yet very simple desserts.

Bakezilla Bespoke Cakes
We didn’t think there could be anything better than a cold ice-cream on a Summer’s day, but Bakezilla has proved us wrong with cake-filled ice cream cones. These little treat are baked, topped with a swirl of velvety buttercream and decorated with a drizzle of raspberry sauce and a chocolate flake to give the authentic effect of an ice cream!

Inspiration from BAKO North Western
We thought we’d also share some of our own inspiration with the baking community. Why not whip up a gorgeously glazed pineapple upside down cake for your customers? It couldn’t be easier with this recipe using Macphie’s Tropical Cake Sensation Mix, which you could also use to create tropical Muffins topped with tangy orange and vanilla buttercream and dried fruits.
What will be making an appearance on your Summer dessert menu this year? Are you feeling inspired to try your hand at some of these tropical bakes? Contact BAKO North Western to stock up on all the professional quality ingredients and supplies that you’ll need to get started.
