Custom Birthday Cakes

The following shows an example of a fondant wrapped customised birthday cake which needed a touch of humor and novelty to reflect a particular interest of the recipient.  We can create birthday cakes in a range of flavors including (but not limited to) ...

dark chocolate mud

gluten & dairy free dark chocolate

Corporate Favours at National Awards

Marron & Dolce recently supplied 170 corporate branded chocolate truffle favours for a National Awards event held at the new Auckland Art Gallery.

The chocolate truffles (one each of white chocolate & raspberry and dark chocolate & hazelnut praline) were presented in a small box at each table setting with the awards logo on the box.

A little chocolate treat was a nice surprise for guests at the event.  The chocolates we make don't use any preservatives and are made with real cream ganache - so you can really taste the difference.

The event organisers gave us the following feedback:

"Marron & Dolce certainly delivered on our brief: Classy chocolates to match our red carpet event!  They looked superb and tasted divine - the perfect branded boxed gift for our guests."  
Melanie Whittaker, NZILA Resene Pride of Place Landscape Awards Convenor

We can customise a gift for your corporate promotional needs - just give us a call to discuss.

Wedding Season

Late Summer has been a busy season for weddings with a range of gorgeous cakes created.  A theme coming through is one of simplicity - especially for fondant cakes.  Clean lines and use of real flowers as the feature and just really good quality cake made with the best ingredients.

A Good Harvest

Many weddings are now held in winery venues and a recent cake we did followed that theme with fresh grapes and grape leaves used as the decoration - we think the result is fresh and fit well with the wine barrel cake stand and location for the wedding.

Everything's Peachy!

"Thank you so very much for your amazingly delicious cupcake wedding cake you made us. Wow it was brilliant and all our guests raved about it.
You made our day that so much more special.
We still can't believe how amazing it was.
We can't thank you enough! It was worth every dollar spent".

Thanks again

An April wedding with a peach colour theme and 94 white chocolate wrapped individual cakes (with top cutting cake) displayed on crystal drop tiered cake stand.

 Each tier of the stand had a different flavoured mini cake; lemon syrup, chocolate mud cake & white chocolate and raspberry.  Extra cakes that don't fit on the stand can come out later so each guest has their own mini-cake.

The great thing about the tiered stand is that it provides a real presence in the wedding venue because of its height - so a real focal point in the room.

As always the finishing touches are linking the colour theme of the wedding with the cake - in this instance gorgeous peach flowers and peach coloured ribbon set the scene.

Real flowers have a beauty that cannot be surpassed.

The bride chose to provide each guest with a small bag to take home their individual cake as a wedding favour - a great option if desert is already included in the wedding feast.

Last year was the first christmas for Marron & Dolce and we produced a range of edible gifts ready packaged.  

A lovely gift box of kitchen garden goodies was beautiful and popular.  

Traditional european christmas cookies were also a nice treat for gifts or the christmas table.

We had fun ensuring a christmas feel to the farmers market stall to ensure everyone's shopping was a pleasure during the crazy build up to christmas.

We will produce a broader range of beautifully packaged gifts for christmas 2013 - including the popular quince jelly (great with roast pork and turkey), our famous tamarillo chutney - watch this space.

A Summer Savoury Option

A summer savoury item we are now selling at the Parnell Farmers Market is a range of savoury quiche. As with all our products, the quiche is made using free range eggs, Clinton's hand-made pastry and quality ingredients including herbs from our garden.

Current flavours include a traditional quiche lorraine (pictured above) with free range bacon, onions, fresh thyme and cheese, smoked salmon & feta with dill or sage and vegetarian with mixed seasonal vegetables, feta and marjoram from the garden.
