Head of pastry at BaxterStorey creates unique Jubilee dessert

30th May 2022 - 05:00
Hannah Robinson, head pastry chef for hospitality provider BaxterStorey, has created a unique themed dessert to celebrate the upcoming Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Her dessert combines earl grey, white chocolate and gold leaf with the more traditional flavours of the 'much-loved' Victoria sponge.

Serving up creativity to large numbers for a global investment bank, Hannah heads up a team of pastry chefs developing food menus for fine dining experiences as well as delivering bespoke themed pop-ups for St Patrick’s Day, Easter and Thanksgiving.

Hannah said: “My inspiration came from taking the humble slice of cake and a cuppa tea, which everyone loves, and turning it into something that could be served in Buckingham Palace. The simple ingredients which make up a Victoria sponge are such great flavour profiles to elevate.

“Everyone has a great connection to this classic cake and whether it’s a celebration, a reunion, your first-time baking, a comfort, or a wedding - a cake is always a feature. In honour of Queen Elizabeth II, I've taken the much-loved Victoria sponge and created a fine dining dessert.”
