Treats, delivered: Cutter and Squidge

Cutter and Squidge treats, cakes, truffles, macarons, biskies

Cakes rock my world. And while I do enjoy baking, stopping by a tea room or pâtisserie always was a favourite treat. Counters filled with delights, pretty decorations, associations of flavours I had not encountered before…  A joy embraced regularly in a pre-Covid world, going to London a few times a week. No fancy bakery of café in my little Hampshire town, the nearest one is a 30 minutes away. On Instagram, life on the sweet side continues… But very few iconic London places actually deliver decadent cakes, viennoiseries or doughnuts outside the M25.

Meet the Biskie

A parcel arrived on a rainy Monday, a gift from my beloved sweet-toothed friend Nadia. Inside, an incredible assortment by  Cutter and Squidge, which flagship Soho store is famous for inventing the Biskie:  a cross between biscuit/cookie/cake creation filled with a fluffy buttercream. Both tender, moist and comforting. It’s difficult to know where to start: strawberry cheesecake like? Salted caramel Smore? Chocolate Billionaire? Each is equally lip-licking good.

Cake truffles and macarons too

The Squidge selection box also includes moreish cake truffles. They have this wonderful, rich consistency that says “Eat me: I am pure happiness”.  Zingy raspberry, tantalising blueberry, irresistible strawberry: it’s difficult to believe they’re vegan, an added bonus! Last but not least are the macarons, with the lightest, most delicate shell I ever have encountered: edible jewels. The passionfruit is a tropical journey of its own.

Happiness by post

Go on. Treat yourself or a loved one. The Squidge box is big enough for 4 to share and will make a splendid afternoon tea. And make sure you check out their Valentine’s day Biskie box – each treat shaped as a delicate shell, opening onto luscious strawberry vanilla buttercream, topped with white chocolate pearl filled with peach nectar. Wow. Just wow.
