Flavour – “Smooth and elegant rays of sunshine with freshly picked strawberries all the way to dried strawberries, covered in cream, with raspberries and raspberry foliage. Freshly baked pastries, forest floor, bark and redcurrants on the palate, like summer in a glass.”

Cutter & Squidge Treats

A company that truly captures the essence of what they’re delivering with the highest quality of cakes, biskies, chocolates and treats directly to your home.

Cutter & Squidge is a family-run, all natural bakery created by two food obsessed sisters! Both have a passion to create exciting, experimental flavours and artisan designs.

The two sisters Annabel and Emily were born into a family of restaurateurs, spending much of their childhood in their parents’ Hertfordshire-based restaurant, this inspired their passion for creating exciting, playful tastes like no other!

Working in the office by day and covered in flour by night, the sisters turned their own kitchen into a late-night laboratory, spending ten months perfecting their signature ‘Biskie’ bakes in their tiny kitchen, Annabel would cut the dough and Emily ‘squidged’ them together… and so Cutter & Squidge’s quirky name wrote itself!

Mixed Biskie Box

Blueberry Cheesecake Biskie with English Bubbly – “The cheese characters are enhanced and take the spotlight thanks to the complements from the sparkling wine, with natural blueberries in the background and white chocolate appearing strongly and deliciously near the close, no matter how much I eat, I want another bite.”

Classic S’more Biskie with English Bubbly – “The sparkling wine gently touches on the s’more’s characteristics, but ultimately neutralises, crafting a soft sweet nougat flavour.”

Billionaire Dreambar Biskie with English Bubbly – “The sparkling wine softens the dark chocolate character, then it clashes slightly, creating an acidic dark chocolate, fading rather quickly. Certainly enjoy these two separately.”

Salted Caramel Biskie with English Bubbly – “Neutralising initially, then a saline caramel mid-palate/mouth-watering expression.”

Strawberries & Cream Biskie with English Bubbly – “Strawberries and white chocolate, a combination that can’t be interrupted by anyone, with the strawberry character from the Biskie and the Sparkling Wine being emphasised by the pairing with a welcoming biscuity close.”

Brownie Caramel Biskie with English Bubbly – “The English Sparkling travels alongside the Brownie Biskie, it doesn’t cross over, as enjoyable as they are, they’re better enjoyed separately. It cleanses the palate and leaves a dark chocolate biscuit sensation.”

Mixed Mini Cupcake Box

Pistachio & Lemon Cupcakes with English Bubbly – “The lemon characters are heightened in every aspect on the palate with a smooth delicate taste of the creamy pistachio icing on top, the sparkling wine delivers an end-of-the-show performance with some red berries and plum characters at the close. This is one of the nicest cakes I’ve enjoyed in a long time.”

Strawberry & Vanilla Cupcakes with English Bubbly – “The strawberry is allowed to soak into every part of the cake thanks to the sparkling wine displaying its gorgeous dried strawberry character in the sponge and icing, this pairing has the sparkling wine enhancing the flavour profile.”

Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes with English Bubbly – “Rich chocolate and subtle hazelnut, a blend made from the gods, the sparkling wine displays a balanced harmony while adding some lovely red fruits.”

Chocolate Birthday Cupcakes with English Bubbly – “Chocolate filled with little surprises throughout with the colourful decorations on top, the sparkling wine delivers only a delicate strawberry character that is most noticeable at the close, refreshing the palate for another piece of cake.”

Afternoon Tea At Home

Scones with Jam & Cream with English Bubbly – “A blissful interaction, the strawberry jam and cream scone is already a heavenly treat, the Raimes English Sparkling Wine adds an added layer of red berries and focuses the creaminess and jammy textures on the palate.”

Brownie with English Bubbly – “Dark chocolate and saline expression, mellowing into a subtle dark chocolate flavour.”

Lemon Drizzle Cake with English Bubbly – “The sparkling wine soaks the lemon drizzle cake leaving only the lemon drizzle floating to the top, even the sparkling wine’s red berry characters are minimal on the palate.”
