Flavours from the village
My poor family have been eating the “uggos” for years and with that my flavours have developed names to whom they are betrothed. If you ask for a cake flavour and eat it as much as one of my village, you may just be lucky enough to join the club.

The one that started it all, "lemon curd is a food group". It's a vanilla cake spiked with lemon zest, stuffed with homemade lemon curd and finished with swiss meringue buttercream
"Sipree" Example pictures of flavour
Chocolate cake with a hint of vanilla, filled with raspberry jam and topped with chocolate icing and freeze dried raspberry.

"Unkie Nen" Example pictures of flavour
The classic and colourful red velvet cake with vanilla cream cheese buttercream.
"The Rob" Example pictures of flavour
Traditional and never boring. A vanilla white cake, finished with a vanilla icing (usually pink icing if you ask the man himself). But, add a jam, curd or caramel and can be anything you want it to be.
"Timmy" Example pictures of flavour
Chocolate cake, filled with a roasted peanut caramel and iced with a chocolate frosting. Think of a Snickers having a baby with a cake.
"Celia" Example pictures of flavour
Chocolate cake filled with a vanilla coconut centre iced with a chocolate frosting. Basically, a Bounty, but cakier. It's pretty good gluten free too!
"Donut" Example pictures of flavour
This cake is just so good it belongs to no one. Vanilla cake crusted in cinnamon sugar which is filled with a vanilla custard, topped with a swiss meringue buttercream and drizzled with a dark chocolate fudge.
"Baker's Choice" Example pictures of flavour
Chocolate cake with a little vanilla, filled with a tart passionfruit curd and rounded out with a chocolate cream cheese buttercream.
