Based on the classic cake served at Café Sacher in Vienna, this is a very rich, dense, single-layer chocolate cake made with ground almonds, with a layer of apricot preserve. Topped with smooth poured chocolate ganache. Traditionally finished with ‘Sachertorte’ piped in chocolate.
This cake can be customised with the addition of plaque piped with your message. (If you take this option the plaque will replace the word ‘Sachertorte’).
Store at cool room temperature. Once cut store in an airtight tin or protect the cut edge with cling film or foil.
Eat within 5 days of collection.

Our Chelsea buns are best consumed on day of arrival and will last up-to 7 days but they can be microwaved to 'revive' them but we only recommend doing so one bun at a time and for 20 seconds on a medium heat.
All Chelsea Buns are packed with a standard postcard which outlines some of our history alongside serving suggestions and allergens.
You also have the option of adding an additional postcard that's personalised with a message from the sender, we recommend adding this if you are sending them for a birthday or special occasion.
