Angel Cake Company Celebrates Taste of the West Champion Award for Lemon Drizzle Cake

Dorchester-based owners of the family run Angel Cake Company Nicci Campbell and Emma Hamriding are celebrating after their lemon drizzle cake was crowned Champion in the Sweet Bakery class at Thursday’s (14 September) prestigious Taste of the West Product Awards lunch. The cake was up against Gold TOTW winners across all six counties which make up the Taste of the West area.

Judges’ comments included: “Looks stunning! It's almost theatrical looking and it really does taste as good as it looks: a fabulous cake!" And continuing to compliment the taste, they said: “The flavours of both the cake and the icing are beautiful. Lemon is clearly fresh lemon, the tanginess of which helps cut through the layers and the icing…. Full marks on taste!”

Nicci Campbell who founded Angel Cake Company with her mother Pauline in 2007 said, “My sister Emma and I are delighted to see our lemon drizzle cake awarded this top accolade and it is particularly fitting to have received the award in the year of our 10th anniversary.”

Emma commented, “We actually have a combined experience making celebration cakes of 40 years - in fact Nicci started winning awards for her cakes when she was a young teenager – and with more and more people becoming involved in this competitive sector it is great to know that our cakes still go on winning top awards.”

With premises in Poundbury, in 2017 the Angel Cake Company has taken a new and exciting direction in “dedicating their time to spend on what they do best - making cakes”. This has involved a renewed focus on making beautiful bespoke wedding, corporate and celebration cakes as well as organising and holding popular cake making workshops to pass on skills
