We never quite know what the British summer will bring, but whatever the weather, you can enjoy it in classic British style with the new ‘Perfect Picnic’ cake range from Warrens Bakery.

Alongside their award-winning Cornish pasties and traditional cakes, their artisan bakers have been busy creating six irresistible picnic treats, ideal for sunny days in the garden, barbecues on the beach or an afternoon indulgence with a cup of tea.

Reminisce over childhood memories while enjoying a melt in the mouth classic Strawberry Jam Tart or savour a soft buttery Viennese Whirl sandwiched with cream and jam. Choose between a traditional Egg Custard Tart finished with nutmeg or Fresh Fruit Tarts filled with heavenly custard and topped with fresh fruit.

This renowned bakery has kept their family values at the forefront of their minds with the creation of pretty pink and yellow teatime Flower Fancies, guaranteed to keep the little ones quiet for a moment or two. The final cake in this range is perfect on a warm summer’s day, a refreshing mini Lemon Meringue Pie with a tangy citrus filling and moreish meringue.

Of course, as the oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world, it’s no surprise Warrens Bakery has created some innovative new pasty flavours to complement their ‘Perfect Picnic’ range. If you fancy a twist on a classic, try the Ploughman’s Pasty brimming with cheese, ham and pickle or if you’re feeling more adventurous, pick up the Picnic Pasty with grilled vegetables, fresh pesto, creamy mozzarella and sweet sundried tomato. Don’t worry about having to keep these Cornish treats warm, they have been designed to be enjoyed at any temperature. In fact, we love them cold.

Completing the ‘Perfect Picnic’ range is their hand crafted Sundried Tomato Focaccia with Red Onion, Rocket and Melted Cheese. One bite is enough to verify Warrens Bakery’s nationally recognised Craft Bakery credentials.

Over the years Warrens Bakery has received a long list of accolades for their artisan sweet and savoury bakes including savouries, scones, breads, regional speciality biscuits in addition to their pasties and cakes. In 2015 they were recognised in the prestigious Craft Business Award in the Baking Industry Awards 2015 and this year they won a haul of awards at The 2016 British Pie Awards.
