The World’s Top 10 Best Charlotte Cakes

The World’s Top 10 Best Charlotte Cakes

Strawberry Mousse Cake and Strawberry Charlotte

While my little boy was watching his children’s TV channel, a show called Nuzzle and Scratch (A British children’s television programme about two eponymous puppet alpacas) was on and their favourite food is sponge fingers. The point of this post is that they had decided they wanted to make a cake with them. The odd thing is the actor who was pretending to be the baker said their “sponge finger cake” was one of the best Charlotte cakes he had ever seen!  What was he on about? I think it is time we found out as I bring you…

Wiki Charlotte (cake) info: A charlotte is a type of dessert that can be served hot or cold. Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies are used to line a mold, which is then filled with a fruit puree or custard. It can also be made using layers of breadcrumbs. Classically, stale bread dipped in butter was used as the lining, but sponge cake or ladyfingers may be used today.

Tiramisu Charlotte Cake

9 – The ultimate birthday cake

Now this is what I call a serious birthday cake! I would have ranked it much higher because most of you know by now that I love strawberries. (see my post “Top 10 Best Double Dipped Strawberries“) but there is no making guide in the image link making it a bit of a fail, but that doesn’t mean it is not an amazing looking cake anyway.

Gula Melaka and Coconut Charlotte Cake

8 – The Plain Jane (or should that be Charlotte)

What I like about this is that it doesn’t look like art, it is just a basic Charlotte cake that we can all make, and while it doesn’t have a great guide to making them in the image like it does cover most of it with some easy to follow pictures.

Strawberry charlotte (lady finger) cake

4 – The art of contrast

While this one is basically the same as number 1 the different choice in berries make this stand out a lot more. Sadly there is no recipe or making guide in the image link, but the good news is that it goes to a website that sells them! I can hardly make toast let alone a Charlotte cake so for me this is perfect!

3 – The OCD of Charlotte Cakes.

I find it amazing how a very basic Tiramisu cake with some few well placed sponge fingers can look so amazing! But that is exactly what we have here and while the source image link does leave a little bit of guess work to the finer points of this cake, it does have a basic recipe guide.

Apple Caramel Charlotte

2 – A Kiss from the rose

Is it art or is it a sponge finger cake? What I loved about this is the self-made sponge finger wall that makes for a perfect cake tin for the caramel apple insides! By clicking on the image you will find a step-by-step guide to making it but very little pictures showing it along the way which is a little disappointing, otherwise this might well have been number 1!

1 – Pass me a spoon and look away, because this is going to get messy!!!

I don’t joke around when I say to you all: I would eat this until I went blind! The thing with Charlotte cakes is that they are essentially dessert cakes. And if ever there was a image of a dessert I could eat a truck load of it is this one, nothing special to make a with a great step-by-step and recipe guide in the image link I might just have to have a go at making one…or two….or maybe 3!
