Introducing the Mr Kipling ‘bou-cake’, a 3ft tall, intricate hand-tied cake and flower bouquet, made from 80 beautiful long-stemmed Aqua and Celeb pink roses along with a selection of Mr Kipling ‘Batting my lashes at you’ Mini Battenburgs, ‘Love you cherry much’ Cherry Bakewells and ‘Fancy a kiss fondest fancies’. The super-sized bouquet weighs around 20kg, took two people over 12 hours to construct and would cost £400.
However, if the price tag is a little hefty, then Mr Kipling is also selling a limited number of £30 bou-cakes via its Facebook page. Each order will also receive a complimentary box of Mr Kipling Special Edition cakes which are also available in supermarkets until mid-February, starting at just £1.
Mr Kipling spokesperson said, “For many years we’ve been mixing, baking and perfecting our exceedingly scrumptious cakes, so this Valentine’s Day we wanted to spread the love even further. As well as looking for something a bit different, over half of the people we spoke to also said they’d love to receive their favourite cake on the day of romance, so we wanted to create a unique gift with real wow factor to share with their special someone. We can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction!”
