Mary Berry, the nation’s Queen of Cakes, is launching her very first range of cakes this spring

  Berry is giving cake-lovers the chance to eat genuine Mary Berry cakes without having to step foot in the kitchen. The range is made up of classic Mary Berry recipes and incudes her signature lemon drizzle cake, a strawberries and cream cake and an indulgent Belgian chocolate cake. Listed below are a few details about the ingredients and cakes in the full range:
  • Divine Chocolate Celebration Cake; A larger celebration cake version of the cake above, £12.00

Mary has developed the products at her home, with all the recipes coming from her books, leading to the creation of a range of delicious, beautifully-finished cakes that caters to every budget and brings people together to share special occasions – from birthday parties to afternoon tea. Mary Berry commented on the launch, saying: ““I am extremely proud of every single one of the cakes in my range. Each cake is a faithful representation of some of my favourite recipes, and they taste fantastic. I hope people enjoy eating them as much as we have enjoyed creating them.”
Mary Berry will be replaced by Prue Leith on Channel 4, and will be diversifying from her roots from home cooking in the near future. She is set to present a new BBC series, Secrets From Britain’s Great Houses, in which she takes viewers on a tour of stately homes. All the cakes will be available in supermarkets nationwide from late spring.
