To mark its 150th birthday, Sainsbury’s has produced a delectable celebration cake in partnership with Californian pastry chef and author Claire Ptak, who was put in the global spotlight last year for baking the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The Citrus and Blossom cake, made using fresh lime, orange blossom and crème fraiche, marks 150 years since the first Sainsbury’s store opened in 1869 on Drury Lane selling just three products: butter, milk and eggs.
Customers will be able to get a slice of the celebratory sweet treat in Sainsbury’s cafés across the UK throughout the 150th Birthday Week (20th– 27th May) for the special price of £1.50.
Following the seven-day celebration, the cake will be available for a further eight weeks at £2 per slice – 35p cheaper than alternative layer cakes sold in Sainsbury’s cafés.
Ptak’s delicious recipe will also be available on the Sainsbury’s website from the 150th Birthday Week, meaning everyone from the expert baker to the novice cake-maker, can enjoy the bake at home with family and friends.
