Flying the flag for the Queen

Flying the flag for the Queen

The nation will be in full patriotic spirit at the beginning of next month as HRH Queen Elizabeth celebrates an unprecedented 70 years on the throne. 

Street parties will be taking place the length and breadth of the country and consumers will be looking for themed bakes and other regal goodies to adorn their tables.

Crowning glory

The Crown Jewels of any celebration is a cake or, alternatively, a sharing dessert. With revellers going all out to toast the monarch, it’s important to makes sure these statement centrepieces are real showstoppers. Colour schemes of red, white and blue are key. You could also opt for platinum decorations for an elegant alternative. 

Layered sponges in red, white and blue are sure to be crowd-pleasers, whilst Union Jack icing for cakes and cupcakes will go down a treat with young and old and can be easily crafted by cutting strips of coloured icing. 

Enthrone your bakes

For a slightly more subtle nod to the Jubilee, there are a wealth of toppings and decorations in red, white, blue and silver available to help you create colourful bakes in your signature style. 

Sosa’s powered food colourings are the perfect place to start, with vibrant reds and blue, plus a striking silver.

Ice cream fit for a Queen

Ice cream parlours can get join in the celebrations by creating patriotic pans of gorgeous gelato. 

Have a go at re-creating an eye-catching Union Jack flag with a Irca Joyfruit blueberry base, which can then be stencilled to re-create the British flag. 

Crowning glory

For a handheld Jubilee gelato treat, fill your dual flavour soft serve machine with vanilla and blueberry flavours for a vibrant blue and white swirl. 

Fill your cones with the two flavours then drizzle with Irca Joytopping strawberry ice cream topping sauce.
